Colorado’s big underdog status against TCU is ‘insulting,’ according to Jon Wilner

·1 min read

Unfortunately, many experts predict another rough year in Boulder for the Colorado Buffaloes football team. The general consensus is that the Buffs will finish last in the Pac-12, and a number of outlets have predicted that with the season set to begin.

The first game of the season is a home tilt against the TCU Horned Frogs with their new head coach Sonny Dykes, and Dykes said he plans on using three different quarterbacks in this game.

This game is quite the toss-up, and both teams have question marks entering the season. Pac-12 insider Jon Wilner of The Mercury News, though, is rolling with the Buffs.

An insulting line for the Buffaloes considering that TCU was 5-7 last year and has a new coach, Sonny Dykes, who has little regard for defense. But is CU good enough to act on the insult? It will be a long season in Boulder, but at least it starts with an upset.

The Buffs being about two-touchdown underdogs is surprising, as Wilner mentions, and the Buffs could begin the season with a big upset, which would be encouraging for Karl Dorrell.

Let’s see if the Buffs can begin the season 1-0 and get some momentum to begin their brutal September slate.
