    Not really a surprise but will be interesting to see if former Husker Patrick O’Brien can become QB1.

    Awaiting a select few posters to breathlessly explain how CSU is going to give CU a really tough game.

    Fun fact for this year: the backups will be running the offense when we’re up big in the 2H. No mercy coming for bobo’s side...

    That's the expectation-not something to be proud of.

    I heard a CSU returner ran a kickoff all the way back for a TD in their indoor scrimmage--60 yards!

    It was originally scheduled to be at their stadium Thursday night before the storm hit. Actually scheduling it on a weekday at night in mid-March... and I thought MM running drills was a big FU to fans.

    It will be an interesting year for the CSU Rams.

    To say the few CSU fans are upset with HC Mike Bobo would be putting it mildly. Bobo appears to be a dead man walking, who probably would’ve been fired already had he not had a cost prohibitive contract. You wonder how he will respond under even greater pressure, with Matt Lubick waiting in the wings to take over, while still sadly battling a chronic disease.

    On offense, they will start QB Hill, coming off his 2nd major knee injury. While not a statue, Hill is not a mobile quarterback that can create when the pocket breaks down. This hasn’t historically been a major problem as CSU has produced decent offensive lines, with several players moving on to the NFL. The pattern has broken down of late, though, after former line coach Will Friend left for Tennessee. The offensive line is being completely rebuilt this year, with returning experience limited to prior spot duty for most of the projected starters. The O line has to be their #1 concern heading into the fall.

    The WR position loses a lot of production as both Preston Williams and Bisi Johnson are off to try and make NFL rosters. Both showed well at the combine, with Bisi putting in an impressive 40 time. I always thought his game was underrated by CU fans. Both will be missed. They will need Junior WR Warren Jackson to step up this year. Jackson may not have the speed of Williams and Johnson, but he’s a lengthy 6’6. They also have an Auburn WR transfer set to arrive this summer. Overall, their receiving corp seems like it will be down this year.

    We’ve seen their running backs. Serviceable players but.nothing special

    Their defense has more returning starters, but that is good news / bad news, as the unit was awful. The defensive line generated almost zero pressure against a terrible CU line last year, and largely returns. Will more experience and another year in the weight room produce better results? Probably, but it should still be a plus matchup for the Buffs offensive line.

    Things get more dicey in their secondary. They have a good corner in Rashad Ajayi, who played well as a freshmen, but the rest of the DBs aren’t very good. Once again, I like the matchup of Montez, Shenault, Nixon, et al. against this crew.

    When the ball hit the ceiling and was redirected it confused the coverage team.

    When CU gets up far ahead, I hope HCMT shows CU fans that things are going to be different by keeping the gas pressed down to the pedal and then simply repeats that the following week.

    With CSU, Nebraska, AFA, ASU, and UA in the first five games of the season, I'm not going to be a very nice fan next season.

    I want to see the backup offense run our actual, full offense when they get into the game this season. Game reps for our backups in lopsided games weren't as valuable as they should have been the past 5 years.

    Why did we start a thread about ‘NOT our rival’ annual rivalry game?

    Because it is game #1. If the first game was against Air Force, there would be a thread about that instead.
