CU to retire Rashaan Salaam’s number 19

Press release from … The University of Colorado football program will retire uniform number 19 after this season to honor the late Rashaan Salaam, as the announcement took place Friday at the school’s annual football kickoff luncheon hosted by the Boulder Chamber of Commerce.

Salaam, the Heisman Trophy and Doak Walker Award winner for the 1994 season, was also a unanimous All-American and the Walter Camp National Player of the Year after having one of the best individual seasons in college football history.  He tragically took his own life last Dec. 5 in Boulder at the age of 42.

After a short video showcasing some of his highlights, the longtime “Voice of the Buffaloes,”Larry Zimmer made the formal announcement.  Zimmer called all 27 games Salaam appeared in as a Buff from 1992-94.  The official retirement ceremony will take place during CU’s homecoming game against California on Oct. 28.

A 6-foot-1, 215-pound tailback who played 8-man football at San Diego’s La Jolla Country Day, he would become just the fourth player at the time to gain 2,000 yards rushing in a season, when schools generally played an 11-game schedule and the NCAA did not count bowl statistics into season totals.  He ran for 2,055 yards in averaging 6.9 yards per carry, doing so even though he did not play in five fourth quarters and on two other occasions, he played only briefly in the third quarter; over half of the yards (1,040) came against ranked opponents.  He led the nation in rushing, scoring (24 touchdowns or 144 points) and all-purpose yards (2,349) and reeled off nine consecutive 100-yard games, including four 200-plus yard games. All the aforementioned set and remain school records.

Three numbers previously have been retired in CU’s 127-year football history: No. 24 worn by quarterback/halfback Byron White in 1936-37 (he wore No. 8 in 1935); No. 67 worn by guard/linebacker Joe Romig (1959-61); and No. 11 worn by quarterback/tailback Bobby Anderson(1967-69).  Anderson’s was the last to be retired, done so at halftime of CU’s 1970 spring game and right after he had been drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos.

Salaam actually wore No. 3 as a freshman in 1992, when senior linebacker Greg Biekert was in jersey No. 19.  Currently, senior tailback Michael Adkins II adorns the number, thus will be the last to wear it before it is permanently placed out of service in honor of Salaam.

He won the first (and only) Heisman Trophy in Colorado history, claiming the 60th annual award as a junior, and declared early for the National Football League Draft.  He was a first round pick by Chicago (21st overall) and would play three seasons for the Bears (1995-97), winning the NFC Rookie-of-the-Year honor in 1995 when he rushed for 1,074 yards and 10 TDs.  Knee and ankle injuries would eventually shorten his pro career.  He was inducted into CU’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012.

Sophomore wide receiver Johnny Huntley III may redshirt this season

From the Daily Camera … Johnny Huntley III realizes that he may not get a lot of passes thrown his way.

The Colorado sophomore also realizes that his time will come.

Huntley is part of a receiving corps at CU that is considered one of the best in the country, led by three seniors and a junior who are returning starters.

“I’m OK with that, playing my role, because when I become a senior, I want to shine, too,” he said. “They’re all older than me and I’m embracing my spot right now on special teams and backing up the older guys.”

Huntley, from Plantation, Fla., played as a true freshman last year, mainly on special teams. He caught one pass for 14 yards.

Given the depth and talent at receiver, Huntley could be a candidate to redshirt this year, giving him three more years to play. He said he’s not thinking about redshirting, however, and isn’t worried about racking up statistics as a young player.

“I have a lot of time left,” he said. “Being on special teams for the first two years, most of the guys that go to the NFL and are first round draft picks, they have one great year. Usually it’s their senior year. I’m not really stressed about time and getting more playing time over the years.”

CU Defensive Line preview: The biggest question mark on the roster

From … When it comes to the Colorado defense, there’s no question this year where the biggest project awaited.

Big as in the big men up front. Big as in figuring out how to replace three 300-pounders who were the rock of Colorado’s defense a year ago, a wall that set the foundation for a defense that finished among the top 20 in the nation.

The answer? More big guys.

“We’ve got some size there,” said Buffs defensive line coach Jim Jeffcoat. “Javier (Edwards) is obviously over 300 pounds. Mulumba is very close to 300 and a very good athlete. Leo Jackson III is about 285 and has been in our system for three years, and that’s a big advantage to him. We’ve got guys who can play.”

Drew Lewis – CU’s best athlete?

From the Daily Camera … Drew Lewis could make a case for being the best athlete on the Colorado football team.

With the season opener — and Lewis’ first-ever start at CU — coming up next week, he’s trying to get the mental aspect of the game down, too.

Junior inside linebacker Rick Gamboa has been limited in practice the past several days, which has forced Lewis, also a junior, to sharpen up his game.

“With (Gamboa) not practicing too much right now and me taking more reps with (freshman Akil Jones) at inside backer, it’s helping me to be on my own and make the calls on my own,” Lewis said. “That’s definitely one place I need to improve.”

Earlier this month, CU linebackers coach Ross Els raved about the athleticism of Lewis, but said Lewis “relies on Rick a little bit too much.”

This week, he hasn’t been able to do that.

Mike MacIntyre Media Day quotes 

Highlights from YouTube, courtesy of


“We are excited about this season. Our kids have been practicing hard and our coaches have been working
hard. Yesterday was a lot of fun we had a good practice and they got to watch the eclipse. It’s pretty cool when
you’re practicing and the moon is covering the sun. Makes you put everything into perspective. We are
excited about the season coming up. We still have a little bit of time before we open up against CSU, but our
guys have been working hard and I like the new format. Some coaches don’t some coaches do I like the format
I think its better for the players and the wellness of the players. You do start a little bit earlier, but in major
college football the players are already here. They are already here to work and to go to school and spacing it
out. I think if you ask the players they like it also.”

On Handling Last Season’s Success
“Every year it is a new team so this is a new team from last years team. Last years team was an awesome
experience. Now of course we looked on that with our guys. We have a lot of good football players, but we are
throwing some new guys out there in positions and they got to go to play. We go back to square one and we
start all over again. With every X and O, with every fundamental everything. It starts over every year so you
look at the calendar and here is January and you start all over again, but at the same time I definitely feel like
our guys have the confidence and the foundation. The guys that have been playing, hopefully they can
infiltrate it and show those guys the culture that they need to be successful and then we will see what
happens. New guys that haven’t played much are going to have to step up and make plays so hopefully they
will be able to do that.”

On Difference Preparing For This Season After Turning the Corner
“I grew up in this business my entire life. My mom always used to put a pillow on my dad’s side of the bed
and say this marriage is temporarily interrupted for football season. What I mean by that is that it was in our
blood it was what we did. Every game every season was the biggest thing. Even though last year might have
been one way or the other this game this season was always extremely important at that time. What I mean
by that is that I always wanted to be as successful as we could be. Our players work so hard and our coaches
work so hard and all the people involved and every facet of our program works extremely hard. And it doesn’t
put pressure on me, it motivates me hopefully to be able to do the best job I can so all of those people can
become successful. They can feel success and they feel some gratification in their hard work and the hours
they have put in away from their families. That’s where I feel when I look at all the people in our program and
the kids and the parents that have entrust their kids to me to hopefully have success and show their hard
work pay off. Every year I look at it the same way.”

On New Defensive Coordinator DJ Eliot
“He has a great rapport with our players. I have noticed that you are not always sure on how people are with
young people. He does a great job and they respond to him and they like him. He pushes them hard and he is
very knowledgeable in his X and O’s. I knew who he was, but to see it first hand to see changes and what we
are doing. You know we can do this we can do that and he has really been there and he has done a great job
with the new guys on the staff and they have really molded well together. I think he is definitely a team guy
and understands what he is doing. He definitely wants to be at Colorado he is excited about being here.”

On Coach Eliot’s Challenge Taking Over A Defense That Lost Most Of Its Starters
“One of the things that really intrigued me is he went to Kentucky and did the same thing. He had to take over
a whole new situation in Kentucky that wasn’t very good and they got better every year. Him coming in here I
knew he would know how to fix different things. He wouldn’t be worried about this or that. That guy isn’t
good enough or that guy isn’t good enough he had to pick up one time. All he has done is work keep coaching
them keep motivating them keep pushing them. He also understands our defense inside and out. They call it
the same way at Kentucky that we call it here. Now there were four or five guys in our system that I want to
run and I was trying to look at those guys. He wants to be here, he went to Wyoming his wife is from
Colorado. He wants to be at Colorado and that’s a big part of it. When I was talking about guys that want to be
here and put their roots in and go.”

On Isaiah Oliver’s Increased Role
“I’ve definitely seen him step up into a vocal leadership role. When I’ve been in the DB room I’ve seen him be
vocal, ask questions, motivate and encourage the younger guys, he’s competed every day in practice and I’ve
seen him take another step. Athletically, he’s about 9 or 10 pounds bigger than he was last year, he’s stronger
and more powerful. That’s one the things he’s been talking about doing decathlons in the spring, is he’s much
more powerful. He broke all kinds of records, and should do the same thing on the football field. I see a
dynamic young man that’s ready to compete against anybody. He realizes now that he’s going to be out there
for basically every snap, this year he won’t be rotating in but we’ll take a little load off him on special teams. I
see great things in him and I expect him to play really well for us.”

On Playing Two Preseason Top-10 Teams At Folsom Field
“When you play in the PAC-12 you expect high-caliber programs to come to town, and you want them to. We
were undefeated at home last year and we hope to do it again, but I haven’t thought once about those games
yet to be honest with you. I know they’re out there, but we’re concentrated on CSU because if we don’t take
care of CSU, our other games aren’t going to be as fun. We need to make sure we take care of what we need to
one game at a time.”

On Nick Fisher and Dante Wigley’s Roles
“I see them filling in and playing well. Nick (Fisher) hurt his hamstring a little early in camp so that hampered
him a little bit, but he’s ready to go. He can play multiple positions for us back there and he’ll end up playing a
lot. Dante (Wigley) has done an excellent job at corner for us and he’s playing special teams, he’s a sophomore
so I’m excited to see what he’ll do. I expect you’ll see both those guys on the field throughout the season. I’m
very pleased with both of those guys.”

On Steven Montez’s Gunslinger Mentality
“I don’t try to pull the reins back on him, you got to let him play and make his plays. At the same time we’ve
tried to train him to be smart with the football, to have an understanding that he won’t be able to fit every
throw in there. His ability to create plays on the run and make certain throws is part of what makes him
extremely dynamic. It forces defenses to decided whether they want to rush him, keep him in the pocket,
what they want to do. I think his ability to make plays outside the pocket and in the pocket will make him
dynamic. He needs to understand certain throws that he can make and that he cannot make. I’m pretty sure
he’ll have a lot of good moments and a couple bad moments like all quarterbacks do. The thing I’ve noticed
with him, even going back to his first game playing a lot at Oregon, he was playing really well then he threw a
pick, then he came back and it didn’t stifle him, he didn’t freeze up. That’s what you want your quarterback to
be able to handle.”

On Future of Series With CSU
“I really don’t have much of a say in scheduling to be honest, we just play whoever they put on the schedule
for our team to play. I do think it’s a fun game, when it’s the opening game for both teams it’s a lot of fun. This
year if I would’ve known they were having a week zero game, we would’ve had a zero week game, I think that
gives them an advantage, but at the same time I leave that up to our athletic directors and the university to
figure out. I enjoy playing (CSU), I think it’s a lot of fun. There will be 70,000 people there next Friday night
and I think it’s exciting for the state and exciting for all the high school players in the state also.”

On Pleasant Surprises From Fall Camp
“There have been quite a few highlights, and a few downers. I’ve been pleased with our young linebackers
that have come in. I’ve been pleased with their athletic ability. I think they are doing well catching on. We’ll
see when games start, but right now I’ve been very pleased with our young inside linebackers. I’m excited
about some of our running backs behind Phillip Lindsay, they are playing really well. Our punter Alex Kinney,
he’s always had tremendous talent but he’s been a little hot and cold, he would be the first one to tell you that.
I hope I don’t jinx him, but he’s been phenomenal in camp. Hopefully he will continue punting the ball like he
has been.”

On Approach To Recruiting Colorado vs. Out-of-State
“Yes, we are (approaching it the same way). I get that question quite often. Recruiting follows population.
States that have higher populations have more recruits, and our state is growing. I always laugh every day
that there are 350 Californians moving in, every day it seems like I meet a knew one. It’s growing fast. We do
recruit our state hard. We look for PAC-12 Championship football players, and there are a lot of Division-1
football players in our state. It’s our job to decide which ones can be PAC-12 football players, and I think there
is a difference in levels at times. We are recruiting (Colorado) hard, we’re hitting as many (high schools) as
we can, we signed five kids this last year from the state. I think that’s the most we’ve signed in a couple of
years. Out of state we look at California and Texas hard. We had a great tradition of getting players from the
state of Texas to the University of Colorado for years, and California being in the PAC-12 is a natural fit for us.”

On Phillip Lindsay
“You know I said Sefo last year meant everything to our program I had to put Phillip Lindsay right there with
him meaning everything to our program. If you cut Phillip open he would bleed black and gold and he would
also bleed Colorado. He loves Colorado he would bleed Denver 303 area code he believes in it. I know that is
kind of funny when people put that up, but he truly loves to represent it. His passion his inspiration, he did it
the hard way. He wasn’t a guy that had a silver spoon in his mouth. He did it the hard way he couldn’t even
bend his knee when he came here. He worked he played on the scout team and then he played special teams
and then running back and he just keeps getting better. Phillips better than he was this time last year. He is
stronger he is squatting like 70 more pounds on his squat than he was before. He is more powerful and
faster. They always said he wasn’t fast enough, but people can’t catch him now. I think if you timed him on the
40, he would have a really good 40, but not like a 4.3. If you put him out there I don’t think the 4.3 guys can
catch him. He just has that will power he has that passion. He means a tremendous amount to our program
and to me personally he means a lot to me.”

On Whether Phillip Lindsay Can Be a Sefo-like Leader
“Oh yeah. He is that leader and he has been a leader for awhile. He is definitely that heart and soul. We have a
few good leaders on that team. We have three captains coming back from that team last year. We have Phillip,
George, and Jeromy and they are doing a good job.”

On Having Both His Own Son and Coach Chiaverini’s Son on the Team
“I think it is very unique that his son wanted to come here and play and play for his dad. It is interesting
because like my son Jay said his freshman year. I didn’t let him get interviewed by anyone until the end of the
year and my wife calls me on the phone and goes, “Hey you got to read this.” I looked at it and it said what is
the greatest thing about playing here and he goes as a coach’s son in college you don’t get to see your dad
very much. He misses half your high school games he isn’t around during recruiting and misses more than
half his basketball games. I didn’t get to take my daughter to college. I didn’t get to take my youngest son to
college. He goes I get to see my dad everyday for the first time ever. I bet that is pretty cool just father son
wise not football wise just father son wise and you don’t get that experience very often and I am glad I get to
live it. I think Chex feels the same way about little Chev. He is doing a good job out there. It is a little bit
different. He is directly coaching, I let everyone else coach Jay. They make they decisions if he plays what he
does I don’t hardly say a word on it because I want to make sure there is no ripples in there. He has pretty
much held his own and I’m pretty sure little Chev will too.”

On Offensive Line
“I feel very good about our offensive line. I feel like we have good talent and good experience. If we had
someone go down I feel like the people that come in behind them will do really well because their season.
They have played awhile they understand it. I feel good about our offensive line I really do.”

On Defensive Line
“Jim Jeffcoat has done an excellent job with our defensive line since he has been here since he was with me at
San Jose State. He has put multiple guys into the NFL he knows what he is doing. First of all the guys that were
here have all gotten a year bigger stronger better. You know Jase Frankie made some good plays last year.
Leo Jackson started a lot of games and played well for us. Both of those guys have had an excellent fall camp.
Frank Umu is a young man who we redshirted and sat a little bit and played a little bit last year. He is 300
pounds and he is playing really well. The new guys that we brought in are doing well. We redshirted he is
looking really good at nose guard. Javier Edwards and Chris Mulumba had done really well. It is great getting
those guys in at spring practice and winter workout and all summer. They had a good spring, but they had an
excellent fall. You’ll see all those guys playing. They are all big they are all athletic. Only have a couple of them
that played a lot and that would be Jase and Leo, but also George Frazier is playing over there too and he is
playing really well and he has played there quite a bit at times. He is going to play a lot there on defense and
offense and special teams.”

On George Frazier’s Versatility
“The other guy I forgot to tell you about is George Frazier. He’s played really well. He’s played there quite a
bit. He’s up for that award, the Paul Hornung award. He’s going to play a lot on defense, a lot on offense, a lot
on special teams. Usually it goes to a skill guy but I sure hope they watch him play and see what a big role he
has on our football team. We’ve asked more of him than I’ve ever asked another player in the lineman area to
ever do. He’s doing a great job at it.”

On Special Teams
“J.T. Bale had a great year last year as our long snapper. He’s going to be a redshirt sophomore this year and
he’s snapping awesome. Everyone forgets about that guy but if it’s a perfect snap and a perfect snap on the
punt, that helps everything. Then our kickers are all doing well. Chris Graham, Davis Price, James are all doing
good. We’re still competing out there to see what we’re going to be doing on game day but they have been
kicking well and I’ve been pleased with those guys. The guys who were here last year are kicking it well and
James has a powerful leg like we thought. We’ll keep that going a little bit longer. The competition always
helps in that area. You want to put pressure on those guys because you can’t simulate a game situation as
much and that’s a good way to do it.”

On Ryan Moeller’s Development
“Ryan Moeller is a special young man. He was a great high school tailback. I think he still holds the rushing
record in the state of Colorado. He came in here and thinking he was a tailback. I told him, ‘Ryan if you just
trust me I think you could be an unbelievable safety.’ He goes, ‘no I want to run the ball,’ but after he tried
scout team a little bit he came to me and said, ‘I think I’ll try safety.’ Then as you’ve seen, he’s a valuable part
of our football team. He made first team all-pac-12 last year on special teams and I think what happened there
is that he only played on two special teams but he was dominant. The year before he played on all of them but
he only played on two last year. But he made so many pays on defense and he was on that hybrid spot and so I
think all of the coaches thought, ‘he has to be all pac-12 somewhere,’ and that’s where they put him. He has a
great sense of humor, he’s an excellent player on our team. I’ve really grown to love and admire Ryan Moeller
for his work ethic. He went from walking on here and competing and he’s another unsung hero that’s a heck
of a football player. He’ll be hybrid again, he’ll play at outside linebacker, and you’ll see him at safety and on
special teams. He’ll just be showing up all over the place which is fun to watch.”

On CSU’s Opening Game Against Oregon State
“The NCAA rule is that we can’t go. I think 10 years ago you could travel and scout games but now with video
equipment and everything, you’re able to see everything you want to see. But that should be an exciting game.
They open up their new stadium which I’ve seen on video and it looks pretty magnificent. I imagine that’s
going to be a great day, a spectacle of college pomp and circumstance down there and it’ll be a heck of a
football game.”

On Team’s Drive After Experiencing Success
“I sure hope so. I’ve heard them say a lot, talking to other people, talking to each other, standing up in team
meetings, we didn’t finish (last season) like we wanted to. We want to finish it better than we did last year.
They understand the work ethic. They’re holding each other accountable. It’s our (staff’s) fifth year here and
this year, I go into our first team meeting and everybody is there six minutes before the meeting starts. The
captains came to me and said, ‘Coach every meeting you have, they better be here six minutes before or they
can’t come in.’ Sure enough, I’ve had to shut the door six minutes before every meeting, the captains are there
and 99% of our team is, but those other guys (who weren’t six minutes early) had some punishment
afterwards. (A player not being six minutes early) has only happened twice since January. They’ve really set
that standard of doing a little bit more, doing it a little bit harder, holding each other a little bit more
accountable, and those seniors have set that example. That wasn’t something that I set, and to me that
answers your question. They realize we haven’t arrived, that we have more to do, we better be more on spot,
we better be more accountable, and I see that in this team and in the leaders of this team.”

On Whether Steven Montez Reminds Him of Anyone He’s Coached or Coached Against
“I still think he’s early in his development but I do think he has all the tools. I also think Sam Noyer has the
tools, I also think Tyler Lytle has the tools. Casey Marksberry, our walk-on quarterback is very talented. I feel
good about all of those guys. But with Steven specifically, his arm strength has gotten better, his accuracy has
gotten better, he hasn’t settled one bit. He’s in 100-times better shape than he was at this time last year, when
he hurt his ankle and couldn’t run. He’s really pushed himself to another level. I think he has the talent to be a
special player.”

On Talented Wide Receivers Pushing One Another
“They do push each other and I don’t think they even have to say anything to each other. (Knocks on the
table) Not really any of them have gotten hurt or missed a practice, but having that competition motivated
them to do a little extra, get in extra-good shape. I notice that they’re taking care of their bodies better in
terms of getting into recovery pools, they’re probably getting to sleep earlier because they know if they slip
up at all that another guy is going to take this spot. That’s what you want. We want that at every position on
our team, and we starting to get there. We’re not quite there yet, but we’re almost there and when you do
that, that’s when if somebody goes down, you don’t drop off a bit. I see that with our receiving core.”

On Experience at WR Helping First-Year Starting QB Steven Montez
“I definitely think it’s important. They know our offense, they’ve played in big games, and they’re going to
keep him up. They are not going to go gripe when Steven does something wrong, they’re going to keep him
positive. They’re going to make plays for him too. He trusts our offensive line, he trusts our center Jonathan
Huckins, who has played a lot of football at both center and guard, so I think that gives him a lot of comfort
with his protection. When you can hand the ball to Lindsay, and Adkins, and Beau Bisharat and all those guys
that gives you confidence too. None of our quarterbacks have to do it themselves. Sefo wishes he had this
much around him with this much maturity, and now Steven does so hopefully he can take advantage of that.”

On Whether He Might Use 350-pound Javier Edwards On Offense
“The refrigerator back is what you want? (Laughs) No you won’t see him do that at all, you might see him on a
special team or two. Don’t tell him that either because he’ll be in my ear every day, he’s got a phenomenal
personality so he’ll be in my ear, he’ll probably read about this and be in my office tonight.”

On Whether CU Is Starting to Get More Respect Nationally
“We’re a team that surprised some people last year. We’re a team that they can reckon with, it’s not like
there’s Colorado, that’s a W for the other team. I feel like we’ve gained that respect but every year it’s a new
team, we’ve got to out there and earn it again. It’s not going to be given to us by any stretch of the
imagination. Just because we did well last season, doesn’t mean we’re going to be good this year. I think
there’s a little more hype around us, we have some players that people saw can make plays, and we’re excited
about that.”

Suspended cornerback Anthony Julimisse arrested on new charges

From the Daily Camera … Anthony Julmisse, a suspended Colorado Buffaloes sophomore cornerback who last month was accused of trying to push a woman down a stairwell, was arrested over the weekend on robbery allegations.

Julmisse, 19, was arrested shortly before midnight last Saturday, according to court logs.

While it’s unclear the specifics of his arrest, a report obtained Monday evening shows that he is facing charges of one count of robbery, first-degree criminal trespass of a vehicle — both felonies — criminal mischief and careless driving, which are misdemeanors.

“Anthony Julmisse remains on indefinite team suspension from his previous arrest in July,” CU spokesman Ryan Huff said in a statement Monday night. “While we’re still gathering information about this latest case, we are concerned to hear of these allegations.”

Julmisse never showed any issues until that femcentric “alleged domestic abuse” occurred (alleged, because even the girl didn’t want to press charges, which in my lengthy legal experience, means they were fake charges. See Chris Rock video about ass-kicking and angry women). Most people are frustrated by the unfairness of the legal system, even adults. Think what a kid feels about that, especially when the so-called “victim” doesn’t want to press charges!

      When that happened, Julmisse as a young kid, was cut loose from his main support system (the FB team), 2,000 miles away from home, likely with a bad “who gives a crap” attitude.

      If he had FB to go back to, pending those “faked” Dom Abuse charges, I’ll bet dollars to donuts that second incident never happens.

  3. It would appear that Anthony Julmisse’s days as a Buff are at least at this time over. Hopefully the kid can get through these tough times that he finds himself in and maybe over the coming year or so get his life back together. There are a lot of opportunities out there for someone with athletic abilities, but they have to be coupled with some sense of maturity, and acknowledgement that you owe it to yourself if you want it bad enough, and although I don’t know his family and support group situation, you also owe them something for the faith they probably have in you.

  4. Remember When CU was Way back un the Associated press poll for the last decade. 1-11 in 2012? etc. to be receiving votes is a huge statement for this program!!!! super excited for the season!!!!

    1. I haven’t seen anything … but now that it is out on a national channel. it won’t be long until it is available on a pay-per-view basis.
      I got to see it this past spring in Boulder – it is definitely worth seeking out.
      If I see any further information on releases, I’ll get it posted. You can also track info on the documentary at

  5. Wilner is going exclusive Pac12, good gets better?

    Agree w/his predictions except instead of 2-4 in road games I see 3-3, so +1 win overall.

  6. in the coach’s poll you have to think they look at the coaches a little more than the other pollsters. Having said that they sure dissed Mora

    1. No…I’m the one at the gym that yells, “You punks leave those 45 lb. plates alone! I need ’em all for my deadlift and squats!”

      Something you, whose exercise consists mainly of “elbow curls” of Coors Light and of driving a cart in the rough chasing after a mis-hit little white ball, know nothing of!

      1. Nah
        Miss-hits are your posts

        Get your clubs outta a the garage

        You could use improvement in your mental game


        Bring your cash

        Let’s Gooooo

  7. on the little we know i think a lot of us can say that we have
    been in this position. i think this is an unwarranted tragedy
    for this kid.

  8. I guess the Tumpkin thing didnt make an impression or a pre emptive lesson.
    being a valuable member of the team meant nothing either.
    what is coming next?

    1. Totally different circumstances, as I’m sure facts will ultimately show!

      Love the way you “white knights” and legal know-nothings, jump to such rash conclusions in situations like this!

  9. any 4 or 5 star LBs out there that want to see the field as a freshman or would rather sit on the bench at your glamour school?

  10. I am excited about our receiving corp. they should help the running game by stretching the opponents defenses. I am a bit anxious about Montez, while he showed flashes last year I am concerned about the long haul Hopefully it is just early summer jitters on my part.

  11. I see Bobo having a breakout year with Fields and Ross being keyed on. The only problem will be if a lessor player is in the slot

  12. I know most don’t see Bailer as a rival, but I appreciate any catastrophe they experience. Not sure how to categorize Bailer, but their misfortune brings a certain schadenfreude to my dark side.

  13. Boulder is the best…but its hard to tell when you look at the other top 20 sites that were chosen. Fargo??? Manhattan??? College Station??? any place in Illinois??
    As much as I hate to say this Fort Fun kicks Most of their butts

  14. hahaha! Boulder diverse???? not economically or racially… at all. I’ve lived in boulder for 28 years. Love CU.

      1. I was a freshman in 67. that makes 50 years…and I am a pup. Still climb 14ers and work contruction and ranch
