CU picks up a commitment from three-star linebacker Jayland Parker. Thoughts?
  • Love it! Let's see ... The No. 11 inside linebacker in the nation, who sounds genuinely excited to be coming to Boulder. Hard to find a negative here (73%, 230 Votes)
  • Like it. Nice to see a sought after recruit in a position of need. This Class is shaping up well, and I hope it continues all the way to Signing Day! (25%, 79 Votes)
  • Not to be a naysayer, but this is the third commit from Georgia. Glad that the coaches have ties to the southeast, but CU's record of signing (and retaining) these players is not very good (2%, 6 Votes)

Which "consensus" preseason ranking do you find the most surprising?
  • No. 17 Nebraska - Puh-lese. The preseason hype Scott Frost train is again out of control. At least Mel Tucker will get to pick up his first win over a ranked team in his first home game (66%, 191 Votes)
  • No. 13 Utah - The Utes may be defending Pac-12 South champs, but the ranking is too high (Phil Steele has Utah at No. 8? Seriously?) (16%, 45 Votes)
  • No. 11 Oregon - Too much faith is being placed in Justin Herbert. Auburn will expose the Ducks in Week One (12%, 34 Votes)
  • No. 14 Washington - Not sure why the Huskies are not getting as much love as the Ducks. Chris Petersen will defeat the Ducks at home (again) this October (4%, 12 Votes)
  • No. 23 Stanford - The Cardinal have a tough schedule, but David Shaw will coax another nine-win season out of his team, and a final ranking higher than No. 23 (2%, 6 Votes)

Other than USC's Clay Helton, which Pac-12 coach do you see as being on the "hottest seat"?
  • Arizona's Kevin Sumlin - He inherited a Heisman trophy candidate, and went 5-7 after misusing Tate. Another losing record, and the bloom will fall off the Sumlin rose (49%, 111 Votes)
  • UCLA's Chip Kelly - Kelly got a pass for his 3-9 first season, but if Kelly posts another losing record, and who knows? (36%, 82 Votes)
  • Oregon State's Jonathan Smith - Corvallis is a tough place to win, and Smith will be given time, but if the Beavers keep going 2-10, OSU will have to make yet another change (11%, 25 Votes)
  • Arizona State's Herm Edwards - The Sun Devils had a surprisingly good first season, but the weirdness of the hire may soon reappear (4%, 7 Votes)

FanDuel win/loss projections have ten of CU's opponents being bowl-eligible. Thoughts?
  • All I know ... With CU at 4.5 wins for the season, there will be some folks who make some money off of FanDuel come December (35%, 51 Votes)
  • Way too optimistic. Anyone who sees a 4-8 Nebraska team having an over/under of 8.5 is looking at uniforms, not who is wearing them. Each season is different, and some teams will under-perform (34%, 50 Votes)
  • About right. There was a definite step up in competition with the addition of Stanford, Oregon and Air Force. The Buffs are going to just have to deal with it (31%, 46 Votes)

Rate CU's chances against Washington State in Pullman on October 19th.
  • Medium. CU catches WSU in a four-games-out-of-five on the road stretch, with a look-ahead game against Oregon after the CU game. If the Buffs are in the right frame of mind in mid-season, they can win (59%, 107 Votes)
  • Low. If we're being honest, this is penciled in as an "L". CU has scored all of seven points the last two games combined v. WSU. That won't cut it against a Mike Leach offense (31%, 56 Votes)
  • High. The Cougars are unsettled at quarterback, and one of these years, Mike Leach is going to come up empty with his plug-and-play replacement quarterbacks (10%, 19 Votes)
