    Just asking.... the question is how bad will it hurt us and when will it happen? Have a kicker at OU too so it will be a good game to watch. Have a great Halloween Buffs fans, and ones in hiding for the time being.

    At least one missed FG, probably an early blocked punt that gets the whole spooky frightfest rolling.

    I'll try my luck at this game:

    OU's net punting average will be around 42.5 yards/kick
    CU...34

    We're guaranteed to kickoff to them at least once. They'll probably have an average starting field position somewhere around the 38.
    CU if we're playing at the top of our game: 26

    And finally, when the game is still close, we're going to drive the ball to their 32 yard line or so, but face 4th and 5. Since we know we can't kick, we're going to go for it and turn it over on downs.
    Our defense will hold. We'll drive down to almost the same spot, be faced with almost the same situation, but this time we'll try a kick. We'll fail. OU will score a TD on the ensuing drive and this will be the "1 play" that we lose by according to our coach.

    Aside from teh first or second half kickoff, the only special teams out will be the punting unit... a lot...

    3 FG's will be made. 42, 34 and 55 yards.

    5 out of 7 kickoffs will be touchbacks.

    3 for 3 on PAT's.

    net punting will be 41 yards.

    CU will average 21 PPR and 32 PKR.

    no blocks given up.

    CU will block one FG and one punt.

    **** it. we are due.

    Yep, couldn't say it better myself. But hey Riddle thinks he'll be successful once he leaves CU just like Grimes and Helfrich.

    Drive down to the one on our first drive. Get an illegal formation penalty, call a WR reverse, get sacked, and then QB draw on 3rd and goal from the 15. Miss the FG then get dominated

    you cant hold that against me! im just a lowly internet puke!!! what do i know about kicking?

    man, i was almost so close. if 8 of those things i predicted had come true, CU would have been only one or two plays away from winning the whole damn thing!!!!

    still stings!
