Now this staff better turn up the recruiting a bit!
Beating Charleston Southern and CAU isn't really an accomplishment
We need to beat a team or two we AREN'T favored against.
You're right PC, in order to get this thing turned around, we needed to start beating the teams we SHOULD beat. It's a process, and as SAD as it is, beating CAU and CSUx2 is a step in the right direction. While to most programs beating these three isn't an "accomplishment"....this WAS for CU. Now lets steal 2 of the next 6 and build on the lightly laid foundation.
very definition of a baby step.
while we are dreaming .. let's steal 3 out of the last 6 and sneak into the New Mexico Bowl
Just an interesting stat. Our 3 losses are against teams that are a combined 11-1. By far the most difficult stretch of our schedule.
Pretty sure Arizona State has 2 losses to go along with OSU's 1 loss, but why let that get in the way of making your point.
I agree PC. Beating the opponents that we are supposed to beat IS an accomplishment because it wasn't happening under the previous 2 coaches and I think it is definitely a step forward. Hope they go out and get a couple more this year.
Sorry I missed a crucial part, 11-1 in conference play.
That makes sense. Having an overall record of 18-3 with two of those losses being to Stanford and ND is pretty impressive.
That a boy....GO BIG OR GO HOME!!
Good point. Mac has us beating teams we should beat, unlike Embree, so an improvement there.
Next step is a win to catch recruits attention...like beating Arizona or Utah. This staff did a decent job in their first recruiting class IMO, but if we demonstrate we are turning the corner with 5 wins and one over a decent PAC12 team, that should prove most excellent. That's how Hawk got a top 25 class...not that we'll do that, but kids will pick a team like CU if we are showing momentum. It's an easier sell than "help us rebuild".
If we can get a rowdy crowd in Folsom for the black out game against the cats, I think we can win. Football teams feed off the energy in the stadium.
So we just need to make sure we're favored for each of the next 6 games. Problem solved.
Is the Zona game a blackout game?
Yep it is. It is also the Breast Cancer Awareness game. They want the crowd wearing black and pink.
Black and pink.
Am I the only one that thinks this pink business is way out of hand?
no. it makes no sense.
Doesn't baseball do the prostate cancer stuff on one weekend a year? I don't understand why it is a month long mess of way too much pink everywhere.
I look forward to wearing pink this weekend then. Ugh

Apparently pink is more marketable than brown.
Joke aside, the MLB does light blue arm bands and gloves and thats about it. The paint the ribbon on the field, sell some painted bats for charity money then go about their business. The NFL and NCAA have gone to ridiculous lengths to plaster pink on as much merchandise as possible and then trot it out for an entire month.
trying to get the female fans by players showing their softer side. I always find it interesting to see who does and doesn't wear pink. My daughter has played many volleyball tournaments where they have "dig pink" days. Support of breast cancer awareness. Never understood how bunches of people buying pink shirts supports ? I do see lots of retailers raking in cash selling pink stuff though.
"Dig Pink" days usually have a fundraising component. I'm guessing if they are selling the pink shirts part of the money goes to the SideOut Foundation which in turn supports (with those $$) medical research and support groups for those going thru breast cancer. http://www.side-out.org/news-events/our-events/dig-pink/
Not to change the subject from this very little talked about pink breast cancer deal but we have a good chance of be favored against Cal later this year so maybe we should put this thread on ice until we win that game....
I am confident we will not be favored again this year.
It is unfortunate, but the Vegas guys look at match ups and we don't with other Pac teams.
understand. My point is teams and parents showing up with their pink Wal-Mart t shirt? That money is going everywhere but to the foundation. So what if you wear pink. The money needs to follow and go towards the cause. Reckon oregon bought and donated to the foundation? or where they just wear'n pink? Who knows? but if all these teams that are wearing pink are actually donating $ - there is a lot of money going to that foundation. And if you notice the posting in the Pub, then it is a GREAT cause.
Mods please put this thread on ice.
