    Mid-season report card

    A lot of these "awards" are up for debate. Have fun.

    Since there was no special teams player, I would give the offensive award to Mahoney. He has been better than anyone we have on that side of the ball

    I agree 85. I should have thrown that category in there but to be honest, since it is such a landslide, it kind of goes without saying. I should have given Grant the proper recognition though. He's had a great year.

    I don't know about a landslide for the speical teams player, I don't know the name of the punter but he has done a very impressive job and is only a freshman and I would consider him as the special teams player. Once the D gets shored up in the next year or 2 this dude will be a weapon by changing field position like Donahue does for Iowa.

    VDK has been inconsistent so far, but does look like he'll be a good punter for us going forward. He certainly has the leg.

    Re: Mid-season report card

    Looking at future schedules, I think Colorado takes one of the next two games at home against Baylor and Texas Tech, and then maybe also @Kansas. That would put them at 5-4 when they play us, with remaining games at home against Kansas State and @Nebraska. That would be a tough, tough game in that case. If they lose to Baylor, Tech, and Kansas, that would pretty much leave them with no realistic hope of a bowl game by the time they play us, and may make that game easier.

    Missouri will likely be at least 6-4 by the time they play us (with only Kansas remaining), so we may have the motivational advantage there if we come in 5-6.

    I don't think we have any realistic shot at beating Nebraska. Their running game is too good and our run defense is too bad.

    Re: Mid-season report card

    Solid analysis.

    You almost needed a third category in Best Win/Worst Loss, maybe "Significant Loss."

    KSU was Significant, but Utah was "Worst."

    Or maybe it was the other way around.

    Knott & Klein show some serious potential.

    Your CU projection sounds about right.

    I think Missouri will be 7-3 when it meets ISU, though (losses to A&M, OU and Nebraska, wins over Tech & KSU).

    I disagree on CU, they are a complete trainwreck. They beat a horrible Georgia team and got blanked in Columbia. Anyone know why Cody Hawkins played? Sorry but there is no reason that guy should ever see the field over Hansen.

    A 7-3 Missuri is what I'm hoping for that weekend - if we are 5-6 we'll have a whole lot to play for, while for them the game won't have any big implications.

    I want a 7-3 Missuri, a 3-4 Colorado, and a 2-5 Kansas.

    Also, I like our chances in Austin more if Texas is demolished this weekend. Those kids aren't used to getting their ***** handed to them and I don't think they would respond well. We still would be heavy underdogs, but I think we'd have more chance of an upset in that scenario.

    We'll see, but we almost always struggle at CU. Our talent level is probably about even with theirs, but I do think we have a significant advantage in coaching.

    Could be. I can see both @Tech and KSU being tough ones for them though. Its hard to tell just how good they are yet.

    I predicted 5-7 at the start of the season. So far things have gone about as expected.

    Re: Mid-season report card

    Lamaak as offensive MVP? That's a stretch Chris. He may not have been penalized but his consistency has not been what I expected. His snaps are good and he is relatively anonymous during the game but he along with Hicks have missed a lot of blocks early this season.

    It has to be Franklin. He is the only consistent player that when we get the ball in his hands does something good each and every time.
