Is this the Buffaloes' year to win the Big 12 North? Coach Dan Hawkins' stated goal of "10 wins and no excuses" was made last December after a disappointing 5-7 season that left Colorado out of the bowl picture. The offense, with seven returning starters, should be better, but the defense, with only four players back, will need some work. The Buffs play host to Colorado State and Wyoming and travel to Toledo and West Virginia in nonconference play. Thanks to Justin!
