Trying to be objective, I see only 1 probable win (Duke)

remaining. Before GT's close loss to CU and its shocking dominant win over UNC I thought we would beat GT and still can, but things are not looking good at all now.

I can't believe I am saying this, but we are likely looking at a 3 or maybe 4 win season in Bronco's 6th season . I truly thought that after 2018 and 2019 that Bronco had hit his stride and that with his recruited and 'developed' players taking over that we were set for a long run of 7 to 9 win seasons. Preseason I thought we were a lock to win 6 and had a good shot at 7+. Several here were predicting a 8 or some even a 9 win season..

I thought Brennan had to play great for us to have a good season and he has exceeded all of my expectations, so that is what makes this matter so surprising .I thought our secondary would be challenged, but not the entire defense and we still have a lot of prolific offenses left to play, so unless our D has a miraculous turn around we are likely looking at several more bad losses. Who woulda thunk we would lose by 20 to UNC and then WF at home? It is safe to say that no one was. Most including me thought the WF game was a near certain W and that UNC would be close.

The 4 road games at Miami (short week) , Louisville, BYU and Pitt are looking really tough and at this point are bordering on unwinnable.

I would love to read some optimistic, but also somewhat realistic replies to my hopefully overly pessimistic outlook.
