lets kick their ****ing ass
BRUTAL schedule next year. Embree has his work cut out for him. :gobuffs:
Bring em on. Cal sucks on the road and they've got some serious payback coming.
That home season ticket package is one hell of a slate of games now.
Sep 10 Cal
Sep 17 CSU (Denver)
Oct 01 Washington State
Oct 22 Oregon
Nov 05 Southern Cal
Nov 12 Arizona
Plus we get to look at roadies to Honolulu, Columbus, Palo Alto, Seattle, Tempe, Pasadena and Salt Lake City.
I can't wait for this season.
How do the Buffs play 13 games next year with only 5 in Folsom? Gonna be some pissed off suite holders on that one.
You listening Mr. Bohn??? Now let's get ready for the big payback. Cal isn't very good, but I might go so far as to call this another gold brick game.
A must win if we want any shot at a bowl.
That is one tough ass schedule. We win 7 or 8 games with that, recruiting should improve a ton or at least you would think.
National Champs. FACT.
I see no reason why we won't go undefeated
You should have glove slapped her right there
Weird that Cal is going to play one "neutral site" game at Candlestick next year and the other "home" games at AT&T Park.
That damn CSU game comes back to bite us again. What exactly is we gain from that game again?
I am excited to play Cal again. We need payback.
Games I would bet against CU
Games I would bet on CU
Games on the fence
I see us stealing ASU and Washington and Cal. 7 wins right there. I could also see one upset of the big 4 on our schedule. I dont understand why 8-9 wins is outrageous to some people. I see CU floating around 6-7 though. Depends how they come out of the gate. Do they play flat like Hawk had them playing or do they come out fired up like they did against KSU under Cabral. We shall see.
The Pac 12 offers a ridiculously better slate of home games, and especially road game options, than the Big 12 ever did. We should drop this BS deal with CSU - play CSU, Air Force, UNC on an alternating basis with every game in Folsom and let them take it or leave it.
lets give them $50, Dan Hawkins and a CU hoodie and cancel the series.
I like the CSU series. I get to listen to all the Lambs talk a whole bunch of **** about how we're the worst football school in the state etc, and then we end up kicking their asses, and it's an easy win.
the schedule is brutal. that's life. i hope our Buffs stomp a ralphie-sized mudhole in their granola souls.
Put it this way, we could play well next season and still have a losing record. The first season under a new head coach can often have some weird games (good and bad outcomes) that you never see coming. At the end of the day, we are still a program with five straight losing seasons and will be breaking in a new coaching staff that includes a first time HC and first time OC. We have so many more questions than answers right now, so it is only logical to assume the Buffs are right around a .500 team until proven otherwise.
As far as confidence in individual games, UCLA seems like a more reasonable chance at a road victory than ASU or Washington right now. I think ASU is going to surprise a lot of people next season.
Oh i know that we have a ton of questions right now. My thinking is that expecting between 4-6 is selling this team short. They do have a lot of talent as is and it was obvious under different coaching that they improved last season. My thinking was that ASU is usually not as good as they are supposed to be, but they do look like south champions on paper. Washington has a brand new QB among other things so that game I could see us pulling out. UCLA is one that I am really on the fence with. So idk I think that 7 wins is easily within our grasp with the schedule we are given. A couple of upsets and we could really make some noise during the next recruiting cycle.
:yeahthat: I believe that the chances of a bowl game, if this thread about the Cal game proves to be correct, all but guarantees another losing record. Not that Cal represents a dominant team that Colorado cannot beat, but there are no absolutely no breaks in the 2011schedule.
Until proven otherwise, Colorado is a lousy road team, and has a losing streak on the road which dates back to 2007. That black cloud hangs over a schedule which includes seven games on the road in 2011. USC and Oregon at home are likely L's, so the Buffs will have to defeat CSU in Denver, win the three remaining home games (Cal, WSU, and Arizona) and win three games on the road in order to become bowl-eligible.
I was hoping for a lesser game on the 10th. That would give the Buffs all of August to focus on making an impression against Hawai'i. Then the Buffs pick up the easy "W" against the 1-AA opponent, and take momentum into the CSU game. A 3-0 start would make the remainder of the schedule less daunting.
Now, I'm less confident about how 2011 will unfold ....
I'm not sure how many people will be surprised by ASU, since they were in the early top 25.
I guess I was thinking more on this site. I have seen a few different posts now about ASU being a good shot for an upset.
Gonna be interesting to see how it unfolds. Obviously, the first game out of the gate in Honolulu is about as big as it gets. If we can somehow get to 3-0, we are likely looking at a 4-1 start. Pretty good, but then brunt of the schedule hits us. Not necessarily a good thing for a team with depth issues at several positions.
so do we have 5 conference home games, and 4 conference road games next year? It sucks we have more road than home in conference
Making my reservations for New Orleans now!:thumbsup:
Not to mention Homecoming is against Oregon. harsh
We have not won a road game in like 5 years. We have seven of them next year.
We have home games vs. Cal, UO, WSU, USC and UA (2 fence games, one we should win, and 2 that would be MAJOR upsets).
I know that our previous coach sucked big balls, but he was not 100% responsible for our road woes. This team needs an entire mental and physical overhaul....that will take time. Expecting 7 wins next year is foolish
