    3rd meeting in last six years between the Noles and Buffs. Buffs kept it close in a defensive battle last year, but couldn't rally enough at the end. Actually basically ran out of time.
    This time we have to go play in the heat and humidity. I don't know what to think about FSU this year. They haven't played anybody, we will probably get a good look at theh Noles tomorrow against WF.

    How huge would it be to bat FSU down there and be 4-0?

    Anybody have any early thoughts on this game?

    Yeah, we should definitely have a better idea of how good FSU is after the Wake Forest game. I do think it's going to be a close game either way. Might be a similar score to last night.

    FSU's offense scares me. They haven't played anybody but they have been putting insane points on the board.

    57 points per game through their first two games. Granted, tomorrow's Wake Forest game is their first real test - but any team that can score points scares me, because our offense just doesn't put a lot of points on the board.

    I might predict a big FSU victory - just because it seems the team responds well when I do.

    Hawk has a terrible road record at Colorado, this would be his first big road win. I don't count TT as a big win.

    Given that their first 2 games were against I-AA teams, you can't really say how good FSU is. We'll have a much better idea after tomorrow's game against a pretty good Wake team.

    Also something to consider is that the week after us FSU plays @ their arch-rivals, Miami...since we're sandwiched in between a quality ACC opponent and a road trip to their rivalry game, they might be looking ahead a bit...

    CU 31 - FSU 17

    The Buffs are building confidence and getting more efficient. Our D is playing better than expected. I like the Buffs chances against the Criminoles.

    Go Buffs!

    As I've said before, this is the year where we learn to win on the road. We have to learn to win on the road. Except for Mizzou last year, we've shown we can win at home. Learning how to win on the road will really start to open up 2009 for our group. I just wish we weren't going to lose so many on D next year :sad1:

    I will post the prediction thread after the FSU/WF game tomorrow. I think most people are waiting on that game to decide what they think will happen against the noles.

    If we line up and run the ball and maintain possession and eat clock then I think we can win. If we are going to try and chuck the ball all over the field then I am skeptic.

    fsu and mizzery are, far and away, the 2 toughest games left on the schedule.

    CU hasn't done ANYTHING offensively against fsu in the last 2 games. this is basically a home game for them. they have superior athletes. and, the humidity (as demonstrated in our last away game v. fsu and v. uga) will be a factor. also, fsu is looking MUCH better than they have the last couple of years and they are getting all their suspended players back for the CU game.

    ok, those are all the negatives. here are the positives, imho.. the CU offense is much better, light years better, than it has been in the last 2 meetings. the key is the damned turnovers. CU cannot give up the ball like it has been doing. fsu has a big fast defense and they will just roll over us if we give them opportunities. if CU doesn't turn it over and keeps the penalties to a minimum, then i think the offense will be able to produce at a level we haven't seen in the last 2 meetings. the CU defense should be better than in the past 2 meetings, too. we've got better coverage overall and our d-line is definitely capable of at least being competitive with the fsu o-line. our team is also much better conditioned than in the previous 2 meetings, so, while you cannot really prepare for that kind of humidity, we may deal with it better than previously.

    there are only 2 games on the schedule where i think CU basically must play out of its head to have a chance to win... fsu and mizzery. we need a performance like we saw in the ou game last year: no mistakes, a few lucky breaks, and a whole lot of tenacity.

    if hawk and company can pull this one off on the road against this type of opponent, i would say that the rebuilding effort is ahead of schedule.

    we will see.

    GO BUFFS!!!

    We'll need very solid performances against Texas & Kansas, too, in order to win those. Texas is very good, although I know it's fun to bag on them around here. As for Kansas, the game's in Lawrence and we play like dog**** in that town. Not nearly as bad as we play in Columbia, but close. But, those tendencies can change. It used to be that we couldn't go into Lincoln and get a win to save our own mothers, but that's no longer the case.

    Most FSWho fans on that thread are giving us no love at all. Let's hope their team feels the same way because I think if CU plays the way they can they're going to kick the crap out of them.

    Back when Mac and (choke, slick rick) were the HC's, we beat up on KU & MU almost with regularity.

    Personally, I would want the opposing team coming into my house to be ranked as well. Just like having WVU ranked before yesterday.
