Holy cow!

Been a long time since the blog was updated. Thank you everyone for your patience. After some technical difficulties the Buff Newsletter is going back to digital from analog. Enjoy!

What to say? After four games the Buffs are surprisingly at the .500 mark. Awful opening loss against CSU. Ugly win over UMass. Admirable loss against ASU. And then a given over Hawaii. Which wasn't that easy as CU relied on first half production to ride out the eventual win.

Onto the next.

 The Golden Colorado Buffaloes kick-off again the Golden Bears at Memorial Stadium on Saturday, 9/27 at 1:00 PM PDT. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network. Cal leads the all-time series 4-3.

The Bears will try to recover from a devastating loss again Arizona last week. At halftime California held a commanding 28-6 lead only to let that lead slip away in the fourth quarter when they allowed 36 points, including a miracle touchdown pass from Anu Solomon to Austin Hill on the last play of the game. The loss was the first of the season for California, which is now 2-1.

Last season in Boulder the Buffs ran away with a 41-24 victory. But this Bears team is nothing like last year's squad.

Cal has played extremely well in 11 quarters this season. However, the final frame against Arizona is a blemish that will be tough to get past. Colorado has also improved from last season, but it still lacks the offensive firepower to keep up with the Golden Bears.

It will be a slugfest, but in the end California is favored to win. Prediction:  California 36, Colorado 26

Let's hope I am wrong.
