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 154 wins. If he coaches 20 years, that means he will need to average almost 8 wins a year.
That’s it? May as well put my dog in charge.

WTF?

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.

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.

"We'll see..."
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.

That’s four wins and four losses before the toss ups. Flipping a coin on the others, 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.
