State of the CUnion Address

Since we have what seems like an eternity to the next game against West Virginia it seems appropriate to take a deep breath after the EWU game and evaluate the team, discuss what we think about the Buffs in the next ten games. I was hard on the Buffs the last couple of days, especially the coaches but I have settled down and re-evaluated the situation. Do I expect the Buffs to win the Big 12 Championship? No. But are my expectations still high? Yes. We expect a lot from the Buffs and showing up in the first half is one of them. Getting a pass rush and protecting the ball is another. So Buffs Fans, here is your chance to chime in. Let us know who you are, what you think of the Buffs and at the end of this "roll call" of sorts we well publish a state of the CUnion address that will represent how Buffs nation feels about CU's chances for the rest of the year. So if you have been lurking and not a member, this is your perfect chace for your first post to let us know where you stand. Here is the template we will use; paste it in the comments below and write your own response...Go Buffs!

How long have you been following the Buffs?

Best memory you have as a Buffs fan?

What team do you want to beat this year more than any other and why?

How would you grade Coach Hawkins thus far in his CU career?

Who is public enemy #1 (I know Nebraska) so who is public public enemy #2?

After two weeks of games, the Buffs are 2 - 0...At the beginning of the year, what did you have the Buffs record at for the season and what do you think it will be now when things are all said and done?

Biggest weakness on the 2008 team? Biggest strength?

Who will be the offensive MVP and defensive MVP at year's end?

Who would you rather have Josh Smith or Scotty McKnight?

See my answers after the jump or in the comment box below...

How long have you been following the Buffs?
Since I was old enough to. Born and raised in Denver, Co my whole life.

Best memory you have as a Buffs fan?
Tough one here...there is a lot of good ones. I was at the 62 - 36 game which was awesome. Probably everyone's answer. So I will go with when I was a kid we snuck into Memorial Stadium the day before the Buffs played Nebraska and played a full football game on the Nebraska field. The field was turf back them which made it even cooler when you were a kid. We then got interviewed on 850 KOA news team and were featured on countdown to kickoff! It was awesome as a kid.

What team do you want to beat this year more than any other and why?
Texas. So sick of all there talk about how Darrell Scott made the wrong choice and all the arrogance that they have shown about the whole ordeal. I have lost a lot of respect for the Longhorns.

How would you grade Coach Hawkins thus far in his CU career?
B. About the best grade you could get after how Barnett left the program. Jury is still out but we have got some talent now...just need it to translate to playing complete games and better the top echelon in the Big 12.

Who is public enemy #1 (I know Nebraska) so who is public public enemy #2...doesn't have to be big 12?
Never really thought about who public enemy #2 is...I really dislike Texas.

After two weeks of games, the Buffs are 2 - 0...At the beginning of the year, what did you have the Buffs record at and what do you think it will be now?
At the beginning of the year, I had the Buffs pegged at 7 - 5 and I still think they get their with wins against FSU, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Texas A&M. Swing games are Texas and Nebraska

Biggest weakness on the 2008 team? Biggest strength?
Thought it would be the corner backs but now I have a bone to pick with the offensive and defensive line. I am going to say that offensive line figures it out because the defensive line is the same cast of characters so dline is the weakest part of this team right now. Strength of the team right now is between wide receiver and linebackers. I will go with the wide receivers based on Patrick Williams performance so far this season. And who can argue with the way JFly and McKnight have played.

Who will be the offensive MVP and defensive MVP at year's end?
Cody Hawkins for Offensive MVP and Ryan Walters for Defensive MVP (picking a defensive MVP is tough...if LB Shaun Mohler keeps playing the way he did last game, he may be my pick.

Who would you rather have Josh Smith or Scotty McKnight?
Mr Consistent or Mr Electric? Tough, tough, tough. Right now, until JFly develops as a consistent threat as a wide receiver like McKnight has, I have to go with Mr Consistent.
