LOS ANGELES — Karl Dorrell attended his first Pac-12 Media Day as head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes on Tuesday. While his time on the stage at the W Hollywood Hotel was short on hard news, he left plenty of reasons for Colorado fans to be excited about the Buffs’ chances of building on a strong start to the Dorrell…...

LOS ANGELES — George Kliavkoff’s first football media day as Pac-12 Commissioner was a doozy. College football has been in a news frenzy this offseason with topics like NIL, Covid-19, realignment and others on the table. Kliavkoff took firm stances on most of these issues during a 45-minute media availability that was split between his opening statement and a question…...

BOULDER — Week 5 was the “prove-it” game for Colorado. The Buffs were sitting on a 3-0 record with two games to play, but not everybody was sold on CU. USC and Arizona State, the two favorites in the Pac-12 South had both canceled on Colorado because of Covid-19 outbreaks, leaving the Buffs with a couple of wins over middle-of-the-road…...

BOULDER — Carson Wells was one of Colorado’s best stories in 2020… Could another breakout player at outside linebacker be on the way in 2021? While Wells is a lock to hold down one of the starting jobs this year, the other is very much up for grabs. A three-man rotation split the reps a year ago, but somebody could…...

BOULDER — After starting the season 2-0, Colorado hit some road bumps.

The Buffs’ game against Arizona State was called off due to the Sun Devils’ Covid-19 outbreak, resulting in a “bye week” for CU. The next week, USC canceled because of its own outbreak, but this time the Buffs were able to find a replacement opponent: the San Diego State Aztecs.

But there was a challenge: CU only scheduled the game 48 hours in advance and had to rush to get ready to play.

Colorado pulled out a 20-10 home win against the Mountain West Conference opponent, improving to 3-0 on the season.

Here’s what went down.

BOULDER — Fall camp is on the way.

The University of Colorado hasn’t announced when, exactly, camp will start this season, but the first week of August is typically a safe guess. With about one month left until the 2021 Colorado Buffaloes football team hits the grass for the first time, we can start looking ahead to the biggest expected storylines of August.

In the first of 10 stories previewing what’s on the way, we’re digging into one of the most competitive position battles on the team: inside linebacker.

While Nate Landman has solidified himself among the best of the best at the position both in the nation and in Colorado football history, the other starting job is up for grabs.

Senior Akil Jones held down the starting job since the middle of the 2019 season, but he entered the transfer portal in January. When he was injured and missed the Arizona game last season, junior Jon Van Diest filled in.

By the end of the regular season, Jones had played 229 defensive snaps, Van Diest had played 85 snaps and junior Quinn Perry played 40.

But the competition isn’t just about Van Diest and Perry; a couple of young linebackers could be ready to see the field and the Buffs also added two intriguing veterans from the transfer portal over the offseason.

At least five players will be in a horse race for the second starting inside linebacker... assuming that Nate Landman is ready to torn from a torn Achilles’ tendon sustained in December.

That’s where we’ll start.

BOULDER — Colorado surprised everybody with a Week 1 win over UCLA, but beating Stanford was supposed to be a tougher task. By the end of the season, the consensus was that UCLA had the stronger team, but that wasn’t the popular belief in Week 2. A win over David Shaw’s Stanford would go a long way in proving that…...

BOULDER — The quarterback competition is down to two. Colorado’s starting quarterback from a season ago, Sam Noyer, intends to enter the transfer portal, according to CU. Noyer, who has one year of eligibility remaining, would have competed for the starting job during fall camp. This isn’t Noyer’s first time in the transfer portal. Before the 2019 season, Noyer fell…

BOULDER — Questions were abound heading into the first game of 2020. Colorado was replacing three-year starter Steven Montez with a former-safety it had pulled back to Boulder after a brief stint in the transfer portal. The transition was made more difficult by the fact that Alex Fontenot, the second-leading returning rusher in the Pac-12, had torn his ACL early…...
