This is why I'm shocked the spread isn't higher. It was 11 but has gone up to 13. This year and last year the talent difference in the teams is as big as it's been in a long time. Still the closest contest was 14 points and we sucked in that game.
That game should have been at least 31-3. I don't usually bet on our games, but I might not be able to help myself Friday night.

According to Howel's Monday rewind, the last 3 games of the Rocky Mountain Showdown:

CU had leads of 37-0, 17-0 and 14-0 before CSU scored in those games.
That's 68-0 in 3 games, before CSU got on the board.

Combined scoring margin of the last three Rocky Mountain Showdowns, all won by Colorado. The Buffs routed the Rams, 44-7, in 2016; won a 17-3 clunker in 2017; and rolled to a 45-13 win last year. CU had leads of 37-0, 17-0 and 14-0 before CSU scored in those games.

That's also 106-23 in scoring. And we fired our coach.
I think this will worse than last year-Given how we turtled in the loss that finished FHCMM, you gotta think Mel will handle what he sees as garbage time differently.

I just hope the team isn't thinking this will be a cake walk and can just show up.
Sure CU has the better talent but if you come in not focused then penalties and turnovers could keep the lambs in it.

how bad is CSU? Everyone, and I mean everyone, who does national previews is dissing CU

My bad. 3 guys in their two deep over 270. Their starting DL averages 280 lbs and that's with their 311 lb DT that is actually listed as an either/or. If our OL that averages 305 can't dominate from the jump, we're in trouble.

Also, they have not settled on a kicker. They were awful on special teams last season.

(So were we, in large part due to injuries)

What will Mel do? Punt or go? If go, what play?
