Posts Tagged ‘Billy Waddy’

Freshman running back Michael Adkins had four rushing touchdowns in leading Colorado to a 43-10 victory over Charleston Southern in Sefo Liufau’s first career start at quarterback.

Adkins, who had 178 rushing yards on the season coming into the game, had 13 carries for 137 yards to lead the Buffs in what appeared to be a rout on the final scoreboard. The score was 22-10 at half, however, after CSU put together two nine-minute first-half drives to keep the game close. The Colorado defense stiffened in the second half, however, as the Buffs slowly pulled away from the Buccaneers …

Walk-on Sacramento State kicker Edgar Castenda was awarded a scholarship in the post-game locker room after his third field goal of the day, a 30-yarder as time expired, gave the Hornets a 30-28 victory over Colorado. With the loss, the Buffs, who had never played an FCS team (formerly 1-AA) in school history prior to 2006, fell to 1-2 against Big Sky Conference teams.

Sacramento State posted 466 yards of total offense against a Buff defense which had played well in the season opening loss to Colorado State. The Buff offense, led by Christian Powell’s 147 yards rushing and three touchdowns, had four scoring drives of 65 yards or longer, but was otherwise unproductive against a Hornet defense which surrendered 49 points to New Mexico State a week earlier.

California 52, Colorado 7

//posted 9.11.2010

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott indicated the weekend of the California game that the chances of Colorado moving to the Pac-12 in 2011 are “worse than 50-50”.

Scott did not rule out the chance that Colorado and the Big 12 will work out their differences in time for a move by 2011, but it was looking more and more like the Pac-10 might go with 11 teams for a season. “It sounds like some discussion (with the Big 12) is going on,” said Scott, “but they (CU athletic director Mike Bohn and CU chancellor Phil DiStefano) are pessimistic (about 2011), and are thinking 2012”.

The way the Buffs played against Cal from the Pac-10 in week two of the 2010 season, waiting another year might not be a bad idea …
