BOULDER — Karl Dorrell has a new focus in his second camp as CU’s head coach. “I’m learning every day, a little bit more about a lot of guys,” Dorrell said early in spring camp. “The other part, too, is that I’m looking to learn.” That second part is the new part. “My approach to this 2021 season is a…...

BOULDER — Chris Wilson made an impact in his first year back at CU as the Buffs’ defensive line coach. He wanted to change up the front-seven philosophy to a scheme that would allow defenders to focus on penetrating into the backfield. The switch worked, as Colorado’s defense produced as much pressure as any in the Pac-12 in 2020. After…...

BOULDER — Colorado is still short on offensive linemen, but it added a key piece this weekend. Max Wray, the brother of former-Buff Jake Wray, announced on Sunday that he was transferring from Ohio State to Colorado. He was a four-star prospect out of high school in 2018. At 6-foot-7 and 308 pounds, Wray is a prototypical tackle. The bulk…...

BOULDER — The Pac-12 has found its next commissioner. The conference announced Thursday that George Kliavkoff will take over the job starting July 1. Kliavkoff currently serves as the President of Sports and Entertainment for MGM Resorts International. What does that mean? Basically he oversees everything related to the entertainment at MGM resorts and properties, like the MGM Grand, the…

BOULDER — McKinley Wright IV, Dallas Walton, D’Shawn Schwartz, Maddox Daniels and Jeriah Horne are gone. Wright, who started at point guard for four seasons, is the biggest name among the group, but Schwartz and Horne were also among the top-five on the team in total minutes played last season. Daniels finished sixth and Walton came in seventh. Luckily for…...

BOULDER — Colorado added an exciting piece to its secondary this week. Atanza Vongor, a former TCU Horned Frog, announced on Twitter that he would be joining the Colorado Buffaloes on Friday. The safety will be eligible to play in 2021 thanks to the NCAA’s decision last month to grant an eligibility waiver to all first-time transfers. He has three…...

BOULDER — Alex Fontenot did everything right. He was a three-star running back out of Texas in 2017, who redshirted his freshman year behind future NFL Pro Bowler Phillip Lindsay. When Travon McMillan took over the job the next season, Fontenot saw a handful of touches, and turned one of them into a touchdown. He became the bell-cow back when McMillan…...

BOULDER — The end of spring is upon us. Over the past five weeks, the Colorado Buffaloes have held 14 practices leading up to Saturday morning’s spring game. The goal was to develop the depth at the back end of the roster while teaching some tweaks of the offensive and defensive schemes to the team’s veterans. By all accounts, CU…...

BOULDER — Most freshman football players need to learn on the fly, but Josh Watts’ introduction to the sport was particularly rushed. “It was sort of a baptism of fire,” Watts told reporters Monday. “Especially in the Stanford game, I had a couple punts late where they had 10 rushers, they didn’t even have a returner and I just had…...

BOULDER — Brady Russell didn’t have the season he expected in 2020. “I don’t want to say I thought too highly of myself but this kind of brought me back down to another level and made me feel human again,” Russell told reporters Friday. Russell, Colorado’s starting tight end, caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in Colorado’s…...

BOULDER — Brian Michalowski has a star on his hands. Carson Wells didn’t pop immediately under Michalowski’s tutelage in 2019, but he took a massive step forward in 2020. By the end of the season, Wells was the nation’s leader in tackles for loss per game and ranked sixth in sacks per game. Michalowski, Wells’ position coach, says the outside…...

BOULDER — Mark Perry is back and faster than ever. The sophomore Colorado safety joined the track team about a month ago to run the 100 meter sprint, along with wide receiver Dimitri Stanley. He took first place in his first meet, which featured the Division 1 schools in Colorado, while Stanley came in second. Perry’s decision to run track…...

BOULDER — Colorado will return the Pac-12’s second-team-all-conference quarterback in 2021, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will be leading the offense this fall. Senior Sam Noyer has the most experience in Colorado’s quarterbacks room but talented freshman Brendon Lewis and Tennessee transfer JT Shrout will compete with him in a wide open quarterbacks competition. Quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf isn’t…...
