Almost as an afterthought, CU scheduled this game at the last minute to fill a nine day gap in the schedule. This manner of scheduling is reminiscent of last season, when a half-hearted effort against Western New Mexico kept the engines warm as the team waited for conference play to begin. A resulting 3-0 start to conference play ensured that we'd see a repeat of that scheduling this season; so bring on the Privateers.

I post that ridiculous clip because I'm stalling for time; previewing New Orleans would be like previewing a battle between a hammer and a nail. These Privateers from the University of New Orleans, as I've mentioned several times, are destined for lesser things, as the school moves its athletic programs to Division II. As a result, they should pose no challenge; schedule filler in its rawest form.
I could try to justify some imminent danger posed by UNO, but realistically there's no chance of them pulling an upset tonight. Oh, sure, the struggling Buffs could lay an egg and let the Privateers lead for a few minutes, but tonight will end in a CU victory, one way or the other. Seriously, if CU somehow loses to these guys, they might as well close up shop for the season.
CU 79 - UNO 51
GO BUFFS! SINK THE PRIVATEERS!
