    2011= ouch

    @Utah
    Iowa
    @Connecticut
    Northern Iowa
    Kansas State
    @Texas Tech
    Oklahoma
    Texas
    @Kansas
    @Nebraska
    Colorado
    @Missouri

    -losing 6 starters on offense including Arnaud, Robinson, Williams, Franklin, Lamaak, and Alvarez

    -lose 5 starters on defense including Parker, Johnson, Sims, O’Connell and likely who ever steps in the middle LB spot.

    Obviously there is always a revolving door, but especially the offense is going to lose a lot of talent after this year. The schedule make this years look easy. Only consolation is that we will get to play Baylor instead of Nebraska, but (according to the current schedule) we still play 8 teams in 2011 that won 8 or more games in 2009 and 5 of those are on the road. 10 of the 12 teams we play had a .500 or better record in 2009.

    Take out Nebraska, Colorado and one non-conference game (likely UConn).

    Replace with Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.

    As of now, Colorado will still be a member of the Big 12 in 2011.

    It will be round robin I'm guessing, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was only 8 conference games on the schedule still. Probably a format similar to what the Big 10 currently uses. I bet we wont drop a non-conference.

    They want to get out at the same time as Nebraska. Plus, Utah is joining the Pac-10 in 2011, so it would make sense for CU to do the same.

    CU will be gone with Nebbie. We will drop a non-conf. I'm guessing @Utah.

    The game at Utah is the back end of a two-game set.

    The game at UConn is a one-gamer, unless you assume it's a return game from 2002.

    Either way, it would likely be easier to push back (or buy out of) the UConn game.

    Come on, man. You don't read these boards enough. We should all want a daunting schedule so our team is tested against the best!! Wins and bowl games are overrated.

    I agree, but I figure we keep the easier game with one less on the non-conf.

    Either way (CU), this is going to be one nightmare of a schedule. 2010 isn't too different.

    Cupcake wins are over-rated.
    Being 6-6 and going to a bowl game is over-rated.

    Re: 2011= ouch

    My point wasn't just the schedule but the combination of the schedule and loss of starters. Point being we should come to the realization it may be a few more years before Rhoads really gets this thing going. If he is somehow able to pull out a bowl season out of the next two we should give him a lifetime contract.

    Winning is winning. Going to bowl games is still going to bowl games, getting extra practices, getting fan bases excited, etc. Teams that go to bowl games tend to continue to go to bowl games because they have the extra practices, so even a bad bowl game is good.

    The Utah game will be pushed to the future is my bet.
