    [​IMG]Colorado was probably the worst major conference football team in 2012. It went 1-11, losing by an average of nearly 31 points per game. Last year, the first under coach Mike MacIntyre, the Buffaloes went 4-8 and only lost three games by more than 31 points.So the Buffs were clearly much improved, climbing out of the Pac-12 basement after dispatching California 41-24.Still, four wins -- and just one in conference play for a second consecutive year -- isn't going to goose anyone in Boulder.

    There are reasons for optimism.

    Buffs won't be all the way there this season, but we should see a lot of improvement.

    Program is starting to gain some momentum.

    Just a FYI -

    Colorado has finished last alone in the basement of the Pac-12 South for the past two seasons. As a original member of the Big Seven, the Big Eight, and the Big 12, Colorado finished last alone in conference play exactly … zero times.

    That’s correct. Until the 2012 season, Colorado had gone nearly a century (since 1915) without finishing in the basement in conference play.

    In fact, before the current run of ineptitude, Colorado had exactly two seasons – 1898 and 1915 – in its entire history in which the Buffs found themselves alone in the basement in conference play.

    Get the picture?
    Finishing last is not the Colorado way.
    Posting a streak of consecutive losing seasons is not the Colorado way.

    The University has brought in a coach who can win, is allowing that coach to recruit the players he believes will help him win, and a AD who is building facilities sufficient to compete in the Pac-12.

    Yes, the momentum is gaining strength

    Did CU finish last in the conference the last two years, or just their division?

    I believe if we were to base the overall W/L record, points for/against, head to head, etc; it would be the conference.
