    Absolutely. Buffs getting to 4-3 would be huge.

    Georgia '10 (even with UGA down) was a big win to put the Buffs 3-1, but given what happened right after that, it was diminished.

    We got really lucky in '10 when AJ Green couldn't go for most of the 2nd half. He was abusing Brown and Smith. Just beating them up and taking the ball.

    The 2011 win at Utah was huge because of our road drought. Made me think Embree had us on course for improvement as a program. Like Hawk's '08 WVU win it didn't turn out to mean ****.

    Yes. Maybe we can send RR to the Bill Stewart school of clock mismanagement...

    Heh, seriously. Or to go back even further, I figured that Oklahoma victory was a real turning point..

    Bigger.

    When we beat WVU people still believed that we were bad but a legitimate BCS level team. It was a big upset but it wasn't seen as an impossibility or some miracle.

    Now we have fallen so far that there are people who seriously question our ability to beat any BCS team other that another bottom feeder. Beating Arizona would mean that we can at least stay on the field with one of our conference foes, that under the right circumstances we can win in conference, something that is currently in question.

    It might be the biggest win since then but only by a slim margin over beating A&M in 2009 and UGA in 2010, both of which ended up as 6-6 teams. Arizona would likely end up with 7 wins at best if we beat them. It wouldn't be bigger than the WV win because they were ranked 21st when we beat them and Arizona isn't even receiving votes in the current polls.

    Wins are only big if the momentum is capitalized upon.

    No way in Hell... WVU was ranked and it was a Thursday game in the national spotlight. Different circumstances and different teams in different places. This is a big game for the team to gain confidence and keep building on what HCMM is trying to build, but it's not fair to the current team to compare this game with one of the past that has no bearing or impact on them and what they're trying to accomplish right now.

    Yes. That WVU was hyped for over a year. But, everyone forgets they were like 1-2 going into that game

    No.

    As much doom as being cast around here, it's not like winning a home game, or even a conference game are things that we haven't been able to do in years. I think it would be big in the sense that we really need to avoid going winless in the conference. We've very rarely done that, even in our worst years in the Big 8 (thank God for KState). But in the sense of it being a huge win, no, there's no way beating another team in the bottom of the conference is that big of a win. I hope to never see the day that beating a bad team at home - conference game or no - is a big a win as beating a ranked team at home.

    Now excuse while I go puke at the thought of beating a slightly above average WVU in 2008 at home now being the measuring stick for our program.

    I'd say it would be the biggest win since the 1985 Arizona Game.

    What did we do after the OK or WV games? They were flukes, not big wins.

    Touche.

    Actually, I just looked it up - because I apparently have nothing better to do today - and CU has only gone winless in 'conference' play twice. In 1898, CU lost their only two 'conference' games, to CC and Mines. In 1915, CU was 0-5 in the RMAC. That's it.

    That's a 98-year streak, so the Buffs better figure out a way to win one of these remaining games.

    Played Bama tough in the Bowl game too.

    I was at the last Arizona win, was a Novemeber game, Senior Day and our offense looked amazing! We won 3 games that year. Felt like a wizzard choosing that game to fly out too.

    Finished the year with a losing season and sucked from then until now.

    WVU wasn't a fluke win, WVU just wasn't very good.
