CU At The Game Podcast – “T.I.P.S.” for the CU/CSU Rocky Mountain Showdown / Plus: Basking in the glow of the 36-14 win over Nebraska

So, are you still savoring the Buffs’ 36-14 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, or are you ready to move on the Rocky Mountain Showdown?

I am joined for this podcast by Brad Geiger and Neil Langland, and we are going to take a few extra minutes on this episode to revel in CU’s huge win over the Big Red from Lincoln. We will also break down the game against the Cornhuskers into what elements of CU’s performance we feel could be rated as Excellent, what was merely Satisfactory, and what are areas which still Need Improvement.

We will then move on to our “T.I.P.S.” for the renewal of the rivalry against Colorado State. The Buffs have won five straight in the series overall, but the teams haven’t met since 2019. We will review the Blackout game in terms of Talent, Intangibles, Preparation, and Statistics, before giving you our predictions for the game.

So … Are the handful of first-team All-Mountain West performers in the CSU lineup enough to make it a game? … Will the Rams have a big enough chip on their shoulder, or will the Buffs have too great of a hangover, to give CSU a chance at an upset? … Will the extra week of preparation – yes, CSU had a bye week last week – give the Rams an added advantage? … And are there any stats from the games played to date which could lead you to believe that the 23.5-point spread is way too great?

… Let’s find out …

  1. This seems to me to be like it has been w/ CU vs. almost everyone, until this year (other than 2016) Just a clear discrepancy between talent, size, speed, etc.

    Buffs win going away. Will they beat the spread? Who knows? Who cares?

    I’m looking forward to seeing Staub and the other QBs get in the game. As well as a lot of other guys who may not have seen much, if any, playing time so far.

    It gets real rolling into Autzen. And, then USC in Boulder? I was sure Gameday would choose that one, but, once again, I was wrong. They wanted the prime time sooner. Maybe there’s some other good matchup they’ll visit that weekend?

    Go Buffs

    1. No, if the Buffs do well enough in Autzen close game to the end, OT loss or better off a win then they will be back in Boulder for the USC game. But really, are hedging their bets by coming into Boulder this weekend while the Buffs are undefeated and favorites, riding that wave while it lasts?

      They may not be sure that after USC & Oregon if the Buffs will be the draw that they are now so they’re jumping onto the band wagon now. Question is: If the Buffs were to win those two (5-0), will they start to follow the Buffs on their journey around the PAC12?

  2. Too much talent on our side for it to be close. The only thing remotely possible is “The Trap Game” scenario. But I like our chances for route.

  3. Even if CSU is to the Buffs as the Buffs are seen by neb as rivals, they don’t have the talent and the size & strength that neb does on defense, so I see the Buffs scoring more than they did against neb. Emotions may be high for CSU, but so where they for both teams last week, so the emotions will be there for both sides.

    CU has players that didn’t get their stats last week, like Edwards, who are looking forward to this game and add in players looking for their first stats or more playing time and I see a lot of scoring power.

    I expect Hunter and other starters to be resting for most of the second half with others rotating out more, but still keeping a couple out there next to the two deep to keep CSU honest.

    I expect Sheduer to get 4 passing TDs by the time he comes out.

    I expect for there to be at least two or three rushing TDs.

    I expect a few of the TDs will be by a backup who want “Theirs” too.

    I’d like to see Struab get meaningful snaps with regular play calling, not just run the clock hand offs.

    If the Buffs are able to get a lot of snaps for their backups the Rams could score a bit more in the end.

    Otherwise: 56-17
