    honestly, picking CU football to surprise on the upside is very similar to when some media/big XII coaches were picking ISU basketball to surprise to the upside. they assume that at some point the coach will 'get his system in place' and live up to performance at previous job. it just isn't going to happen.

    From my viewpoint Nebraska is the class of the B12 north, and the other 5 teams are pretty much equal. ( I really don't see MU as a lock for second) CU could finish anywhere from 2 to 6, that is how equal the remaining teams are. It really comes down to which team has the least injuries and has the most surprise players. In terms of coaching, I think the CU coach has the greatest ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, so they have that going for them.

    At least he gave some rationalization by saying he thought the CU O-Line would be improved.

    What does he do on days when two of his Most improved teams play each other?

    Cal plays Colorado in the second game of the year. I have a feeling his Cal prediction will be better than his CU prediction.

    I think he was trying to be funny here, but from where I am sitting he just comes off as a DB.

    I agree completely. We will need to do all the little things to win, as the north teams appear very similar. As always winning the turnover battle is big.
