    If it weren’t for mountains to distract me I might truly hate summer. The anticipation during this back half of the off-season is brutal.

    He wants to be the winningest coach in CU history. He’s 47. To break Mac’s record he will need 94 wins. If he coaches 10 years, that means he will need to average over 9 wins a year.

    At least he didn’t say he wants to be the Joe Pa of Colorado football...

    Mac started out slow. Let’s hope MT gets off to a better start.

    He already has. Tone has changed throughout the program.

    Mac set the tone early, he just had to recruit out of a severe talent hole. He famously kept a lot of the best Colorado prep players, red lettered the NU game, and built up a winner that culminated in a MNC, a Heisman, some Butkus and Thorp awards, and a pipeline of talent that starred on NFL rosters for well over a decade.

    Show me on the field in the fall. A tone change has never won a football game.

    I'm not confident we'll have a winning season in 2019. But I'm super confident MT will have a fantastic team in 2023. Stay the course.

    It means he’ll only coach CU for three seasons.

    I see it already. When Montez gets to the post-practice presser and looks like he just got run over by the Tucker train, I think that's good for at least 7 wins this year and some damned disciplined football that's fun to watch.
    Remember last year when Montez would get to a presser and looked like he'd be good for a 60 minute presser? This year he looks like he just got driven into the ground for 3 hours, and has hardly anything to say.
    I think Tucker's going to win some damn football games.

    I understand and expect optimism this time of year but man, 7 or more wins, in the team’s first season under a new coach with a new scheme? Lots of mistakes likely, especially early in the season. For the way too early thread...

    Neutral CSU = mistake-filled win
    Home NEB = electric, emotion leads to further mistakes,...toss up
    Home AFA = not a gimme against the triple option but a win
    Away ASU = heat, road, mistakes...difficult loss
    Home ARZ = win
    Away ORE = loss
    Away WSU = toss up
    Home USC = this is the year, win
    Away UCLA = toss up
    Home STAN = toss up
    Home WASH = loss
    Away UTAH = loss

    That’s four wins, four losses, four toss ups. Flipping a coin on the toss ups, I get WSU, UCLA wins due to fewer mistakes for a very hard fought 6-6.

    Seeing how both lines play against NU will tell us a lot about how the rest of the season is going to go. Despite the win last year, we got owned on the lines for much of that game.

    I think Kap as OL coach automatically makes our OL better than it was last year. If Hambright is everything we hope he is, I really don’t have any concerns with that group for the Nub game. My concerns lie with depth and what happens with injuries.

    Same thing w DL, tbh. If the top 3 guys can live up to their potential and stay healthy, could be a very good unit. If not or if injuries happen and the JC/HS guys in the two deep can’t step in and play well, that group could be scary.
