Hope you’re right, think the more they pass, the better our chances
Have a feeling they will try to be more balanced in run vs pass against us. We haven’t shown we can stop the run the last couple weeks, so I could see them testing us. If they can be successful, just helps their passing game and should help minimize their sack issues.

Need a good night an o, some clock burning drives.

This is what makes winning at CU so tough
So little in state talent to recruit year after year. Compare it to California, Arizona, Washington, and Utah. All of those states have better local talent for those teams to recruit. Colorado and Oregon are both really lacking but Oregon borders California which helps them in recruiting.

You have to hire great recruiters who can go to other states and win recruiting battles against blue blood programs because there aren't enough P5 kids in Colorado. Lindsay and Worthington are talented and we've had some good ones in the past but there aren't many to go around in this state.

Counter point.
I think this is a perfect match up. The pressure will be on our defensive backs. Which has surprisingly been our strength. Wazzu does not run much which we do not stop much. The extra wide splits of the Wazzu's offensive line is tailor made for bull rushing which is all we do. Our only front 7 speed on defense is our Will-backer and our undersized Nickle-back which should lend itself to blitzing from angles if we disguise and pick our times. On offense we have played to our strength which is a ball control run game. I like our chance.
CU 31 Wazzu 24 and we win late.

Re: I don't expect you to understand but
Our team authored policy and curriculum for AFOATS, specifically ACSC, SOS, AWC, ROTC, and CEPME. We were chosen for visits by the AFOATS commander or his/her vice. Usually a 1 or 2 star general. We had access to all departments within the university we visited. Paperwork eventually went to SACS (since we were HQ'd in Montgomery, AL). That used to be the same accreditation body that is over UNC. Not sure if it still is.

Bottom line is schools care A LOT about their academic credibility. UNC seems content with throwing it away to justify wins on the basketball court.

Love Frank Mason
Cant believe NBA G'M's didnt like him more. He is playing really well for Sac so far, but the problem for him is that Fox is their pg of the future.

Murray can guard pg's but isnt the classic pass first pg. I see him as more of a combo guard (which most pg's are nowdays anyway) Muddiay has improved his shot, but his decisions and turnovers are going to keep him on the bench behind Jameer Nelson.

Murray is a PG like Steph Curry/Russell Westbrook. (not comparing)
He's a shooting/score first style PG with pretty elite shooting ability.

He's obviously nowhere near their level, but that's the type of PG the Nuggets are going for....and I think he's going to make great strides this season.

Re: Here's what I don't get...
I've been a member of an accreditation team that inspects university programs to ensure they are rigorous and current enough to maintain their credentials. For UNC to use the defense "it's ok because these bogus courses were available to all students" is f***ing insane. It's like telling your wife "hey, it's ok I went to a prostitute because she's underage". No!! That's even worse!! How does the NCAA turn a blind eye to academic fraud???? How can UNC maintain their accreditation??? Something is seriously amiss here.

Here is why they weren't punished
These sham courses were available to the general school population also and the NCAA did not want to wade into overall school academics. Nevermind that half the students taking the course were athletes while they only made up about 5% of the student body. Nevermind that the attendance wasn't taken and that just a paper turned in at the end that was leniently graded (by a non-faculty member) boosted the athlete's GPA. Nevermind that often there was not even instruction going on for these classes. Disgusting is right.

Full disclosure--my alma mater was a fierce rival of this school, so I looked into this more than I would for similar transgressions at another school. The only thing better would have been if it happened to Duke and their holier-than-thou institution. But after the bogus lacrosse scandal there, maybe I should be less vengeful.

You must be sold on Murray or Mudiay at pg.
I hope you are right. Man I have doubts. I do not dislike either player but (imho) neither is a true pg that can take charge of the offense run plays and distribute the ball like a young Jameer could. Watched Frank Mason other day, seems to be the type of pg I think they need. On the other hand, I suspect you know more about the game than I do and would like to hear your thoughts.
