    If I'm not mistaken wasn't WC a fill-in after someone bailed on us? I don't think we would schedule someone THAT bad unless we were in a bind.

    I may be wrong, but I think CSU will get better under Mac. In any event, they are a better team than many of our patsies, as long as they aren't THE out of conference game, it can only help.

    I hope the best for Coach Mac. I don't doubt they'll be a pretty decent team offensively....wonder how he'll recruit and run defensively.

    At least it's not a 1AA/FCS team, or whatever they're calling it these days.

    You guys are right. Why play Colorado St. when we can have another exciting game with a Western Carolina or Western Kentucky.

    Apparently, Alabama is close to securing a one-and-done with Notre Dame, as well.

    Bama has scheduled a 1AA game in 6 of the 11 years that CFB has had a 12 game regular season. They are more than receptive to playing these games.

    I don't particularly like seeing us play lesser opponents, but I understand the need and would rather it be teams like CSU or a similar team than FCS teams.

    You'd have to actually prepare for CSU and play the starters. It wouldn't be another week of resting/preparing for the next main opponent. Alabama already gets love in the rankings with the current cupcake week on the schedule.

    They did beat Colorado. That should keep the fans of CJM's back for a while at least.
