A buddy of mine (huge CU fanboy, but otherwise a good dude) wants to make a wager with me on the CU win total this season. Nothing crazy, the loser's family will just have the winner's family over for a night of food and beverages, good times. But the over/under is at 7.5, and he's taking the over. I have to take that bet, right? Seems like I'd be a fool not to, I don't think there's any way that team wins 8+ games this season. 

 

No brainer, take the bet and enjoy the evening at his house.

That is as close to a guarantee as possible.  I am going to go bet real money if I can find 7.5 on CU.  I don't see them winning even 6 games.

There's funsies with friends, and then there's real money.

 

If you're playing with real money, the only play on Colorado should be 'no play'. This science experiment they're running in Boulder is too unpredictable. They could be embarrassed in the first game and it's onto the Shedeur Sanders Draft Stock Stat Padding Consolation Tour. It's a locker room full of mercenaries just ripe with dissent and finger pointing and that train could fall off the tracks at any time.

 

But there is very, very much a world where all of that talent they've been stockpiling wins 8+ games. There's a catalyst for improvement. How do they improve the offensive line play? They just went out and bought a whole new one. That could actually work.

Could work, yep. I'll be shocked if it does though.

Culture vs Clicks    

 

https://mikefarrellsports.com/college/colorados-click-culture-wont-overcome-nebraskas-culture-of-substance

 

To paraphrase Franklin Roosevelt, Saturday, September 7, 2024, will be an evening of infamy. On that night, the annoying noise of hype will meet substance personified in college football’s ultimate culture clash. The Colorado Buffaloes' culture of clicks created by head coach Deion Sanders will succumb to the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ culture of reality engineered by Matt Rhule. Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium will have an overflow crowd that looks like a tsunami of red. On this night, Nebraska will be reborn as a national brand while Colorado will face the final judgment and comeuppance it so richly deserves.

Every time that I think I've hit my unlikeable limit for this program and the current staff/roster, they do something to surprise me. I can't believe that Hunter said that about the O-line. I have said all along that I thought Prime would be in Boulder for two years until all of his boys move on, but at the time I thought he'd leverage his experience at sCUm into a head coach opportunity at a larger program. Based on how his time in Boulder has gone, unless he turns it around completely and has a successful season, I don't see that happening now. Maybe an assistant role with some buddies in the NFL is up next?
