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…...

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…...

BOULDER — Halfway through spring camp, cornerbacks coach Demetrice Martin is happy with what he’s seen from his group. “We’re pretty good right now,” Martin told reporters Wednesday. “We’re on the incline.” Colorado returns most of its 2020 group, which was arguably the best in the Pac-12. Free safety Derrion Rakestraw transferred to Tulane, but the rest of the starters…...

To make matters worse,…...

In his redshirt-freshman season, Pursell started all 12 games for Colorado at center. He was credited with 13 touchdown blocks, he was a finalist for the CU Athletics…...

According to Gonzalez, that wasn’t an issue. “I believe I could’ve gone anywhere and played early,” Gonzalez told reporters Monday. As Gonzalez wraps up his freshman year at CU, his confidence…...

Colorado’s athletic director, Rick George, addressed the media on Thursday, the first day of the final quarter of the 2020-21 fiscal year. As expected, the news wasn’t all good. George expects to run a deficit somewhere between $18-20 million this year,…...

BOULDER — It actually happened. Way back on December 7, Colorado head coach Karl Dorrell was asked whether we’d seen Jarek Broussard at full strength. Two days earlier, Broussard had run for 301 yards at Arizona, bringing his season total over the 700-yard mark in four career games. He’d already earned two Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week awards. So there…...
