I would be insulted if I was Stanford.
Stanford obviously needs to make a statement and outdo both USC and Oregon.
Easy money for those willing to bet against their own team.
My only hope is that we hold Stanford under 50 points. 3 straight games giving up 50+ is enough.
How ****ing sad is that.
I love this attitude but Stanford's D is pretty salty and our O pretty bland.
All games are winnable on Sunday/Monday. Hope you are right but they play smash mouth and we are a soft team with a broken will. We will curl up in a corner as soon as we get down which will be within the first three minutes of the game.
LOL. Everyone knows we don't put up fights at home anymore. Stanford by 40. Saying their OL will bully us is a vast understatement.
I do not think we will win, but it will be somewhat competitive. Our offense showed some strides against SC and our defense can only get better with time. Stanford barely beat WSU at home.
It was really more an observation about how low the spread is....
Stanford has a tough defense but their offense has been disappointing so far. The have not been putting up a lot of points and their QB appears to be regressing as the season goes on. The 28 is about right.
Stanford's offense doesn't need to be stellar. Their defense is that good. Might be one of the best in the PAC this year. Lots of seniors and several pretty solid underclassmen. It will be interesting to see how many of you support Marshall after this game. As you know, I rarely credit furd with anything. I credit their defense though. I think the UW game was an anomaly...I threw out the Notre Dame game on account of poor referees.
-28 by the end of the first half... trees win big
I tend to agree. All but 2 of Stanford's games have been decided by a TD or less.
I don't see us covering the spread on this one either.
Buffs will lose 38-3
No Mascot 45, Buffs 14
Other than 2 games when Stanford put 50+ on the board (blowout of Duke and OT win against UA - both at home), Furd has scored between 17 and 24 points every week.
If the Buffs don't cover this one at home, things will be worse than I even thought. We really shouldn't lose this one by more than 2 scores. Usually, I'd say this is a good spot for the Buffs to pull an upset.
For the record, Stanford has a long history of crummy football.

I think this is a game the Buffs can cover IF the Buffs can score at all.
I could see a final score of 28-10 or 21-7 or so.
Stanford's defense is very good but their offense is below average.
Wait --- Stanford only gave Walt Harris 2 seasons??
We should cover. Stanford's offense on the road is not good.
Bill Walsh 4-3 and 3-7 in back to back years. Wow.
Have you guys even been paying attention? Sac State scored 30 on us at home, and Stanford's offense is waaaay better than Sac State. Stanford also has a very good defense. I think they cover along the lines of 38-7...and this is barring another ****storm in the first half of the first quarter that is happening very regularly.
This. People underestimate just how bad we really are.
We are terrible... and Stanford's offense on the road is below average. 28 is a lot of points for a team that can't score.
As we have seen firsthand this season...
remember how CU makes qb's look like Joe Namath?? nunez is going 95% or better and we get rolled
