Is it too early to start? I figure some will want to wait till we have some Fall camp reports and lineups worked out before, but I am anxious to kick this off!

7-5 for me.

Colorado States - 42-10, WIN: Four straight against the Rammies and they still have Mike Bobo as a coach. So yeah, win.

Nebraska - 35-31, WIN: This is going to be a tough game. We know Nebraska is going to focus heavily on Viska after what he did to them last season. However, defense should be a weakness for Nebraska again this season. They got better as the year went on last season, but there were plenty of games where they got torched. Unfortunately I'm worried about our defense too. Martinez is a dang good QB and he can run. He made some big plays against CU last year before he got hurt. It's gonna be a fun game and there's gonna be a lot of Nebraska fans but it'll be fun to send them back to Lincoln with a loss. :)

Air Force - 35-14, WIN: Options teams are always a little bit scary to play against. Luckily HCMT has played against GT before so I think he should be prepared for it.

Arizona State: 28-21, WIN: This is a toss up game. I think it's going to be similar to last season by they lose their biggest weapon N'Keal Harry and their starting QB, I believe. But CU can't ever seem to pull out a win at Sun Devil Stadium. ASU is good at home.

Arizona: 35-14: WIN: CU just has to win this game. Arizona is going to be bad this season. If CU loses, they won't win again the rest of the year and it probably means they only beat CSU and Air Force to state the year. lol

Oregon: 42-21: LOSS: Oregon is a playoff contender IMO. They're gonna be damn good, no two ways about it. CU will hang on the first half but Oregon's depth will take them all the way. I'm getting 2016 vibes against Michigan for this game for some reason, so hey, there always a chance if CU is healthy.

Washington State: 28-24, WIN: It's time to not **** the bed in Pullman. I think WSU is going to have a down year and CU needs to finish on the road.

USC: 24-21, LOSS: Until CU beats USC, I will always put this game as a loss. They have Helton as HC which will help CU and the game is in Boulder, but it's really time to win against USC for the first time ever.

UCLA: 27-17, WIN: I don't get the hype for UCLA this season. CU should win this game in a similar fashion to last season but who knows with CU playing on the road.

Stanford: 21-17, LOSS: Toss up game again. 50/50 on who wins the game. View it similar to Washington State, CU needs to come out and play well against a good program. Shaw is a good coach. It should be a close game but I think Stanford pulls it out late.

Washington: 35-10 LOSS: I would love to beat Washington but it ain't happening this year I don't think. Last year should have been the year but like USC, I'm putting this game as a loss every year until CU can prove me otherwise.

Utah: 28-24, LOSS: November is Utah's biggest rival, not BYU. They always find a way to lose games late in November. This is a 50/50 game for sure, depending on the health of both teams. I'm giving the edge to Utah since the game is in SLC.

7-5 overall

What do you guys think?

Overall, I like your predictions. I couldn’t really find anything I disagreed when because you listed the toss up games. Solid, I laughed at the ASU score tho, same as last year.

5-7

Wins over CSU, AFA and AZ.

Then win 2/3 over Wazzu, UCLA or ASU.

I upgraded from 4.

Subject to revision after game 3.

Realize this doesn't belong here, but I have the recollection that CU said Bryan Stoltenberg had 32" calves. I know that sounds impossible. Am I dreaming?

Yes. Which means that we can improve and still end up with a poor record.
We could also improve and have a lot better record. I actually think we are being thrown under the radar a little too much, which could be a good thing.
We were not a terrible team last year and had Viska not got hurt, we easily win 2 or 3 more games. Arizona, Oregon St, Cal are all likely wins last year with a healthy Viska and a very decent chance we would have beat Washington as well.
If he stays healthy and this team responds well to Tucker and is physical, we could surprise. Of course Montez is still our QB, but I don’t think we are as bad as some are saying and we could surprise.
I can tell you I like our chances at going to a bowl more than the “experts” are saying Nebraska wins their division.
