Camden Lewis didn't want me to have the perfect score prediction last week. but I forgive him because he has done so well this year. I actually didn't get to watch the 4th Quarter of the game because I was enjoying a fancy dinner with my wife, sadly Applebee's wasn't available. But I did get to have a 16 oz bone out Prime Ribeye cooked to perfection.
We have a nice steak house in the town I live, so my wife and I always try to go on our anniversary. This year it was on Wednesday, but our oldest had a soccer game that night so we had to delay it until Saturday. Which in hindsight made parking and navigating down town difficult because they decided to have a Dios De Los Muertos celebration on Saturday so they shut down the square and literally every parking spot near the restaurant was full.
My craving for delicious steak would not be stopped by a bunch of people in face paint and Tejano music!!! We finally found a spot after driving around the block a few times. Due to every one being at the festival there was no wait time at the restaurant so we sat down got our drinks and bread loaf with pat of real butter. as soon as our waiter showed up we ordered. We didn't need to look at the menu because we have been getting the same thing for the past 10 years straight. I got the Ribeye, my wife got the Filet, and we got Potatoes Au gratin as well as Jalapeno Mac n Cheese. The salads were out with in 3 minutes of ordering, which is crazy fast for any place let alone a nicer restaurant. both salads were drown in ranch, which by the way, They have very good ranch. So good in fact that we both used the left over ranch on the plate to dip our buttered bread in. at this point we were out of bread and butter. The waiter refilled and this time brought us like half a stick of butter.
Shortly after that the steaks came out and of course I toss some butter on top of the steak, because fuck my cholesterol and triglycerides. So after the steak was enjoyed I had some sides both are always great. We decided to head over to the Ice House we had our first date at and played some shuffle board and drank a few beers before heading back to put the kids to sleep.
Speaking of large land animals you can eat... if you want to. This weeks game is the Buffaloes of Colorado. Beevo of UT and Ralphie of CU are the coolest live mascots.
While watching people get trampled by Ralphie is always fun, they also have a costumed mascot named Chip. Chip has bad Aim.
Chip had to be carted off, I assume there may have been some reconstructive surgery performed. I bet he wears a cup now.
Speaking of Buffaloes, there is an old movie where a guy is riding around on a Buffalo. I have never watched the actual movie, but there are some funny Youtube videos made with songs that make me laugh.
Colorado does have one of the nicer looking campus / stadiums in the conference.

Oregon on Offense Colorado on Defense
|Team||TO Margin||PPG||3rd Down Efficiency||3rd Down %||Yards Per Pass Attempt||Yards Per Rush||Run Pass %|
Colorado has a pretty decent defense. one of the best at preventing 3rd downs conversions. They are much better defending the pass than the Run though.
Oregon on Defense and Colorado on Offense
|Team||PPG||3rd Down Efficiency||3rd Down %||Yards Per Pass Attempt||Yards Per Rush||Run Pass %|
As good as Colorado's defense is, their Offense is awful. like really really bad. They are one of the worst offenses in the country at converting 3rd downs. looking at the raw stats our defense should dominate them.

Most of the rankings and predictors agree this is going to be a lopsided win. Colorado's offensive line is one of the worst we will have faced all year long. Of course they just fired their O line coach so magically they will be the best when they face us. But looking at the numbers just about every one in the front 7 should get a sack.

So What Does It All Mean?
Colorado was doing so badly on offense, that they have already fired their OL coach. Colorado should not move the ball on us what so ever. They have a good defense, but it can be ran on especially with our relatively good offensive line clearing the path. I would avoid throwing into this very skilled secondary. If we take what they give us and march down the field on them I could see us putting up another good offensive showing.
