Last year I was not very high on the Colorado Buffaloes heading into college football season, and the C Buffs did not disappoint going 3-10 and losing 7 in midseason.

College Football 77 in 77: #73 Colorado Buffaloes

If it weren’t for the Washington State Cougars, and the mess that’s currently unfolding in their program, the C Buffs would be the worst team in the Pac 12 this season.

Yet there’s excitement in Boulder about CU alum Jon Embree taking over the program (noticing a trend here? All but one of the first five in the 77 in 77 are starting over with a new coach) and installing his west coast offense which should be fun to watch and put points on the board.

As for the defense, well…did we mention they have a new coach and offensive system? This is certainly not your older brother’s Colorado Buffaloes. Although their biggest offensive weapon is a guy named Stewart (not Kordell) and again Eric Bienemy will play a major role in the offense.
