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.
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 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.
