    Wild idea

    First let me preface this with a bold, I don't think it will happen or come remotely close, but Tim Griffin got me thinking about his blog on second half outlooks. As best case scenioro, he says about Colorado:
    The Buffaloes sneak a victory at Manhattan and ride the wave of that excitement to home victories over Missouri and Texas A&M to earn a share of the Big 12 lead. They then split their road games at Iowa State and Oklahoma State, leading to a showdown against Nebraska for the North title.The Buffaloes sneak a victory at Manhattan and ride the wave of that excitement to home victories over Missouri and Texas A&M to earn a share of the Big 12 lead.

    Now Griffin has the winner of the North with 5 wins, but we have already discussed in other threads that the winner of the North may be lucky to have 5 conference wins and a scenario like 2004 might be more likely.

    With having only won one game in the regular season, if Colorado somehow wins four conference games, with wins over Kansas and Nebraska they will likely win any tiebreaker and win the North. That would mean the winner of the North will not be eligible for a bowl game unless they win the conference in which they will go to a BCS bowl game.

    I hate thinking about it because we could be in the driver seed for the north title right now!

    We're a hell of a lot better than I expected us to be. Just be thankful we are not 1-6 at this point...
