    What are three things you want to see most on Saturday vs. massac. (notably three areas of improvement or mastery)?
    What three things you predict we will see on Saturday vs. massac.?

    more of a wish list.. I am done predicting what our Buffs will do.

    1) NO interceptions.
    2) an actual game plan on offense (set an identity)
    3) NO special team blunders

    Want
    1. Big, big win.
    2. Sefo throwing a perfect game
    3. Vastly improved special teams

    Think I will see...
    1. Close game win or lose
    2. Sefo throwing an inopportunely timed INT or two.
    3. Fans burning Toby in effigy in the south stands during the fourth quarter.

    1) Red Zone execution
    2) An emotional leader emerge
    3) 2-3 explosive plays resulting in TDs

    1) Too many stalled drives
    2) Continued Special Teams Issues
    3) A close game

    Want
    1. O-line pass blocking
    2. Sefo not making mistakes
    3. Coaches managing the game and calling more coherent plays

    Think I will see
    1. Sefo will make mistakes that may cost us the game.
    2. Coaching will be better but they will still abandon the run offense to early in the game
    3. DBs will give up another long play for a TD

    We will win but it will be too close for us to feel good about the WIN!

    Want to see:
    1. adequate special teams
    2. adequate pass blocking
    3. downfield aerial attack

    Expect to see:
    1. UMass returners posing for the Heisman
    2. a bunch of WTF looks between lineman while helping Sefo off the turf
    3. my lawnmower by halftime

    1. A win - and a lot fewer bonehead mistakes
    2. An o-line that can block stunting rushers
    3. Passing game that clicks (requires #2 and/or better adjustments)

    wtf Orr? Are you deliberately posting in the wrong thread all day? This is at least 3 posts that seem very misplaced.

    And, to the topic at hand.
    Like to see:
    1. Continued improvement in defense
    2. CU score more points than UMass.
    3. No attempts to return punts.

    Expect to see:
    1. Improved OL play. Calahan gets the start.
    2. Better pass completion percentage, but still no stretching of the field.
    3. CU scores more points than UMass

    Want:
    • +/- Balanced Offense - 150+ yds rushing / 200+ yds passing
    • No WTF button moments
    • Dominant Defense - under 250 total yds given up
    Expect:
    • At least one WTF button moment
    • Lifeless Crowd (especially if the Champions Club is not finished - not that they will be paying attention anyway)
    • 3 score CU win

    Want:
    1. 5,000 students (the student section holds 9,000)
    2. A win by three touchdowns or more
    3. Some deep completions and pass protection

    Predict:
    1. 2,000-3,000 students
    2. A closer win than I would like
    3. But still, a win

    Big win: UMass should not be a close game at home in year 3 of this coaching regime.

    Solid passing performance: Sefo threw for 158 yards, 0 TD 1 INT last week. Let's see some impressive numbers and no boneheaded INTs. Need to have success on the ground as well.

    Special Teams: Hopefully we aren't punting much, but when we do let's not have punts blocked and let's average more than 36 yds. On the flip side, let's never see anything like what Fields did ever again

    I think we'll see a win by a decent margin, but I'm sure we'll have our share of errors.

    Apparently I don't have as much free time as you. And does it really matter?
    But you'll find me at plenty of CU football games and basketball games in person. More gametime, less keyboard time for me.
    Go Buffs

    I agree, I plan to look down from my seat and see a lot of uncovered bleachers. This team needs to win to get the students there.

    Want:
    1. Offensive play calling. Know what you're going to do, not figure it out as you go.
    2. Sacks. If we don't sack this team, we WON'T sack any PAC-12 teams.
    3. Win by 30+. This isn't a good team. At all. Don't slow down at the end.

    What I will see:
    1. Continued failure on the o-line
    2. absolutely NO game plan on special teams. No set kick returns, no attempts at blocking punts from the 1.
    3. A bottom 10 team scoring 35+ at Folsom. Potentially, 2 bottom 10 teams scoring in that range.

    I'm on Folsom Frenzy. We do everything we can to get students to go to games. At a certain point it's out of our hands and the team has to perform. You can't do a cool giveaway every single game.
