Hey Winning . ..
I agree --

But I'd rather have him excited then thinking "crap, we're in the middle of the Pac again . . . "

By the way, there is some rumble the QB out of Fairview may be thinking about staying home instead of heading up to Chicago to lead a pretty miserable Northwestern program. He'd have competition here, but he may welcome it.

What do you think about UDub this weekend? I see it as a really tight game. Wy you ask? I don't know and it may be wishful thinking . . .

All of Chiv's tweets sound like CU is going to sign the no. 1 class
He makes 3 stars sound like future first team All Americans.

Well, hopefully the donation of over $260 million that SC...
received in the last week or so will help because there are no strings or limitations on where that money can go. It's USC's to do with as they want.

The program isn't dead yet. SC survived the very unfair recruiting restrictions placed on it by the NCAA because of Reggie Bush and it will survive this too.

I follow Pac 12 recruiting closely
You get significant glimpses of the future.

The problem for Helton is he is getting clobbered in recruiting by Mario Cristobal, Chris Petersen and other conference coaches.

Oregon signed a ridiculous number of top SoCal guys last year and they went into the Coliseum and blew out USC. Some of the true freshman from SoCal like Kayvon Thibodeaux and Mycah Pittman had major impacts in the game. Mykael Wright returned a kickoff 100 yards for a TD. In years past these guys would be playing for USC (like Pittman's older brother), but Cristobal outworked Helton. And he has a better team.

That just doesn't sit well with the SC boosters.

Recruiting is the life blood of a program. A down year or two can set a program back for years. It has a direct effect on the team's future and sitting in 11th place in the Pac 12 is a serious issue.

The other thing is Helton has proven to not be a very good game day coach. If you gave Whittingham, Petersen or Chip Kelly Helton's talent, there is no way they would have lost 4 games this year.

Very good point. That could be the dealbreaker
Shocking their recruiting is not better. With USC, they only need effort to recruit lights out.

Two different players, but with that said:
Montez does have his own unique skill set and the size to see over the defenders. Also, he can move pretty well for a big guy. He is strong. Can't tell him to play tentative and slide on crucial situations. Let him be physical when the situation calls for it. He needs to be allowed to play to his strengths.

I don't follow recruiting nation wide, barely even the Pac 12...
except for what is posted here. Over the years, I have found that "recruitniks" love the drama of recruiting far more than the game itself. In fact, they come in only during recruiting season and then fade away and arrive again like a caravan as the recruiting season heats up again.

Recruiting is not the only thing that will judge Helton going or staying...it's the big picture including what other HC is out there that can work real magic asap...or will it be another long haul? It's really about winning, winning and winning, again.

Best and worst from SD win.
Best was the on ball defense. Might be the best on ball defense i've seen from a CU team. I love that Tad puts McKinley on best player as lock down defender. Underrated element to Kin's game. Defensive effort was outstanding.

Have to find efficiency on offense. Not sure if it's scheme or poor excution. Maybe both but high amount of turnovers in first two games are alarming. It's early but I think the PAC 12 is gonna be a good conference with alot of good teams this year. Need to execute better.

Go Buffs

USD had a nice start. Nice half. 3 games in 5 days
helped then hurt them when the ran out of gas.
I'll take the win too. Kids adjusting to new expectations. That O flow still concerns me, turnovers, etc. but hopefully this is a teachable moment.

True that... I lucked out
It was a push, I bought a half point and I won it.

IT was a good night, took the buffs -14 and the under on a 4 point teaser.

Was lucky, rarely works out this well.

UCI is a tough team. It will be a great game.

Bey is a beast on D and boards. Dislike the O Boyle runs, but enjoy watching MW when he's on.

No hiccups this year. Can't afford to lose to any team we're better than so we get a good seed in the tourney.

NCAA's or bust, go Buffs!

Sloppy win
I don't expect USD to do anything in the WCC, so... Buffs D was solid, but O was ugly. Still trust Kin, Bey and Battey to keep them in games vs tougher opponents. 2 subpar games for Kountz and hope he bounces back soon cuz we need his punch.

I expect consistent effort and hard work
I don't know that he'll contribute much if at all as a frosh, but I expect him to be a solid lunch-pail guy with great all-around fundamentals who will improve each year and grow to be a team leader. He comes from a large, supportive family, and he will contribute and be successful off the court while at CU and beyond.

I'd take a hard look at that GM too. After Denver loss they had a guy
tweeting death threats before he was out of the locker room. It's strange when I look to Baker for maturity, but the comments he made after the game changed my opinion of him a little bit. He might be brash and not so hot of a qb but he gets it. Analyzed that situation pretty well 'feels like we lost'.

Miles Garrett needs to be kicked out of the league. And the coach for Cleveland needs to be suspended for his environment where the Browns are the most penalized team in football. This was inevitable.
