The Jon Embree era at Colorado is best described in two ways: brief and disastrous. The former Buffalo presided over four wins during his two years as head coach, but last season's 1-11 campaign was near epic in its futility. Colorado, which lost to an FCS school in Sacramento State, not only dropped 11 games, it failed to cover the number nine times. Despite a coaching change (the athletic department brought in former San Jose State coach Mike MacIntyre), expectations are, understandably, not high for the Buffaloes. Colorado's 2013 regular season win total is set at 3.5 games and the Under is drawing -125 odds ($125 wins $100). The Buffs, who are listed at +200000 odds to win the BCS National Championship, are projected to finish last in the South at +7000 odds and they are the biggest long shot to win the conference at +20000 odds.
Early college football lines from the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, shockingly, have Colorado listed as an underdog in the seven Buffalo games that it lined. MacIntyre's crew is getting 22 or more points in five of those games.
