    The preseason USA Today rankings were published today and CU fell 14 spots from the end of last year, coming in at 101. Below is where CU's opponents rank.

    CSU - 81st
    Idaho State - No rank
    Michigan - 8
    Oregon - 17
    Oregon State - 114
    USC - 34
    ASU - 48
    Stanford - 11
    UCLA - 4
    Arizona - 37
    WSU - 54
    Utah - 36

    Some things really jump out at me as being completely fubar. For example UCLA at 4 and Arizona State jumping up 28 spots from last year.

    Completely messed up.

    When you have G5 schools like Western Michigan and Louisiana Tech in the 30's and Georgia Southern and New Mexico ahead of multiple P5 schools you might as well be drawing names out of a hat. San Diego State at #14 tops of the ridiculous

    Serious joke.

    we gonna shock the world. let them hate, then watch them cry, and we will drink their delicious tears of regret and poor prognosticating.

    Fear The Buffalo. a reckoning is coming. we will avenge many wrongs done to us over the decade of woe. we will deal justice and doom upon our enemies and the non-believers. The Buffalo is awakening, angry!

    Funny how CU is 8 point (last I heard) favorites over the team ranked 20 spots higher on a neutral field.

    Las Vegas is more intelligent than the national media.

    Wow I didn't realize CSU was so much better than we were. Time to pack it in I guess.

    What a bunch of malarkey. Buffs are and will show much better than that.
    For all the reasons stated:

    plethora of Seniors and juniors
    been in the system 3 to 5 years
    Maturity/ mental attitude
    Experienced players (Starts and games and snaps played)
    3.5 years installing the Mac2 methodology
    Coaching changes/upgrades
    Better strength and conditioning.
    Nice facilities.
    Fans are coming back. The hype is strong.

    That ranking is shocking if not so stupid.

    Year 4 bowl game. The bed is made.
