    UCLA
    Washington
    @Arizona
    @Oregon

    Second half of the season definitely features more talented teams, but all of those teams have shown just enough vulnerabilities and we've shown enough competitiveness that I still feel good about us picking up another win or two before all is said and done.

    I think we go winless. All those teams are decent or better at rushing the ball.

    Anyone really, it depends on when the team comes together and figures out how to win a close game. We will probably even win 2 conf games (mark it down or quote it). We can compete, we just don't know how to win yet. I will call my shot and say Arizona and Utah.

    Team I've seen stumble the most since last year looks like Washington. Of course that means they'll hang 50 on us.

    All of them, **** them all. I just hope the team adopts my attitude on it. We'll win a few more regardless.

    Ask me 3 weeks ago and I would have said winless. Now, I can easily envision two wins with the most likely being Washington and Utah.

    It will be tough but I do believe this team will make a game of all of them. We will have some chances with Washington being the most likely.

    I'm serious, **** all of them. We need a bowl game, besides, who give a **** about what they have done? You have to be better for 60 minutes. We need to get pissed and just beat the crap out of anybody in front of us, I don't give a **** who they are. That's my take on it, sweat no one. That's the reason I became a CU fan in the first place. We call a gauntlet, they should call it heaven, you wanna play and beat the best.

    Wins will be tough to come by. But I think we can compete in all those games and if you compete, anything can happen. We appear to be excruciatingly close. SOOOO frustrating.

    I'd like to say we'll win them all, realistic or not. I just don't have that ***** attitude. I'd settle for 4-2 and a bowl, the rest is not acceptable. Turn it on, **** it, nothing to lose.

    I agree, Washington and Utah. I think UCLA could be vulnerable too. I'd love to win that one!

    If injuries don't cripple us, I think we find a win. One of these weeks we're going to get more breaks than the opponent.

    I just get the feeling a big win could open the flood gates.

    Think we can win any of the games. Our offense makes us competitive (ala Texas Tech and WSU), and if our defense bows up when can win several.

    Unrealistic to hope for four wins, but somehow thinking it isn't off the table.

    4 wins is possible. As DBT said, a big win could open the flood gates. Team is gaining confidence.

    I mean, 4-2 is possible. But realistically, anything better than 2-4 is a stretch IMO. We needed a better start to make a bowl game a realistic possibility. We always knew the schedule was backloaded and that still holds true.

    I hate to say it, but I think we go winless. But we're competitive in most of them, which is oddly a step forward. Don't know why Utah keeps showing up in peoples posts, they beat UCLA and Michigan on the road, and were a dropped pass from beating WSU. UW has had our number forever. Cal and OSU were the only teams we played that we matched up with somewhat talent wise. Barring a flukes 5 TO performance or something by the opponent, I don't see us winning.

    I don't see a "no hoper" the rest of the way. The Pac-12 is so schizophrenic that this might be the most difficult league in the nation to bet on week in and week out... Cal gives up 115 points in two weeks and wins both games.... two hail mary victories this season... Such a crazy league right now.

    Looking ahead:

    U$C loses at home to ASU and BC, but dominates Oregon State and knocks off Stanford.
    UCLA (ranked) could put up 75 points... but they also lay an egg against Utah...
    UW seems beatable, but they played Stanford very tough...
    UA (ranked) beats Oregon in Autzen, but then struggles against UTSA, Cal, and Nevada... who knows...
    Oregon (ranked) looked pedestrian against UA at home, but they also can beat a Michigan State. Their O-Line is bad, but Mariota can overcome a lot of that weakness.
    Utah (ranked) looks very good... that game looks very tough to close out the year.

    It's going to be a crazy end of the year, but I can't help but agree that this team should surprise someone or multiple teams the rest of the way. They will not go winless in conference play this year.

    I had a dream last night that we won out the rest of our games, and the team won the Heisman. I explained to my wife that they had an exception that they could give it to the entire team, but it had never been invoked before.

    Somebody is going to need to make more mistakes than the Buffs.

    The Buffs need to be healthy and keep the fire in their bellies. This comment is extra important for the DL and LBS.

    Best Chance: Washington in Boulder. Either Utah or UCLA would be season savers. But hard to see CU as favorites in either.

    Not holding breath for upsets @USC, @ Oregon, @ Arizona.

    40% likelihood of 1 win.
    15% likelihood of 2 wins.
    < 5% likelihood of 3 or more.

    Hard to find another win on the face of it. That said, I'll go with an epic upset of ucla at Folsom as the one. Why not?

    Looking at that schedule, I don't see a win. I still think we get one, but it will be an upset and one of the home games is our best bet. I don't even the confidence against Arizona.
