2008 CU schedule Aug. 30 Colorado State (Denver)-- i'll call this one an easy win. i know the "rivalry" thing and all that, but their talent is way, way down. i think CU will pummel them. Sept. 6 EASTERN WASHINGTON-- this should be an easy win. Sept. 13 Bye Sept. 18 WEST VIRGINIA-- thursday night game on espn. the first real test. wvu has lost a lot and will be under a new coaching regime. i think CU has a good chance to get them. if they were a better passing team, i'd be more concerned. call it a close CU win. Sept. 27 Florida State (at Jacksonville)-- toss up game. fsu will have athletes and they will be basically playing a home game. another nationally televised slug fest. put this one in the "challenging" column. Oct. 4 TEXAS-- oh please let scott be a Buff and not a whorn. CU will have a shot at them at home, but ut is still too deep to call this one a win. another for the "challenging" column. Oct. 11 at Kansas-- ku is good and i think they will be good next year-- that qb is outstanding. but, i think they used up their magic last season and i don't think they can sustain it. and, i think CU will be looking for payback. but, they know how to throw and we may be challenged next year defensing the pass. put this one in the toss up column too. Oct. . 18 KANSAS STATE-- CU should win. ksu is going to compete, but, they don't throw it that well and CU will be at home. call it a CU win. Oct. 25 at Missouri-- i don't pick "sure" losses, but this one looks really tough. these guys are good and they are good at home. unless our team dramatically exceeds expectations, this one will be a dog fight. another for the challenging column. Nov. 1 at Texas A & M-- i think CU wins this one. with franch gone, i know they are hoping that they won't underperform as they have done, but i think CU matches up well and i'll give CU the win based upon coaching transition issues at atm. Nov. 8 IOWA STATE-- CU wins. at home. payback. isu just isn't that good. Nov. 15 OKLAHOMA STATE-- CU wins. osu is going to compete, but again, they don't pass it all that well and i think CU will get them. Nov. 28 at Nebraska-- CU wins. the fuskers are going to struggle next year. so, by my count, and early forecasting, that would give us 8 wins and 4 really tough ones. i think it will be a fun season. hawkins looks like he will exceed expectations on the recruiting front this year. if he can exceed expectations next season on the field and deliver an 8 or 9 or more win season, then i think he should get an extension. GO BUFFS!
