Rodney Dangerfield of the Big 12



I guess I'm just venting here (and late to the party on this one), but I am astonished at the complete lack of respect we are receiveing across the board in pre-season predictions.  Everybody from ESPN to SI to every twit that can write a blog (some Kansas dude, who has ZERO room to spout off) seems to be going out of their way to write off our Buffs.

 

Now I understand that based on last years results, we deserve nothing but abuse.  However, I would expect REAL College Football experts to go a little deeper than simply applying last years results to this years predictions.

 

Fact is CU is a different team this year with more depth, talent, and experience.  In my real opinion, we lost several games last year for some bizzare reasons (other games we simply sucked and deserved to lose) that I just can't see happening again this year.  Also people are quick to forget that we did beat A&M, Kansas, and gave UT and OKSt a pretty tough time on thier own field.

 

I hope I can bring this post up again in November and tell ESPN, SI, and the other morons with a blog (not this blog of course) where they  can "stash" their predictions.
