BOULDER — After Colorado’s 30-0 blowout loss to Minnesota on Saturday, head coach Karl Dorrell told reporters that he had to “reevaluate everything” and that the offense has to “start all over.” Well, Dorrell made his evaluations and explained them to reporters on Monday during his weekly press conference. First off, nobody is losing their job. While fans have called…...

BOULDER — The offense doesn’t work. You can make cases for any number of different culprits—offensive coordinator Darrin Chiaverini, running back Jarek Broussard, the offensive line, etc.—but the bottom line is that Colorado’s offense straight-up doesn’t work. “As a head coach, I have to re-evaluate everything,” Dorrell said after the game. “It is one of those points of the season.”…...

BOULDER — Karl Dorrell’s Colorado team almost pulled off a shocking upset over No. 5 Texas A&M. “We had our chances, and unfortunately it didn’t work out,” Dorrell said after the game. The Buffs led for 44 minutes and 43 seconds, but gave up the game-winning touchdown with less than three minutes to play. When Colorado took the field to…...

BOULDER — La’Vontae Shenault didn’t play in Colorado’s Week 2 loss vs. Texas A&M. Now we know why. Shenault, a third-year freshman wide receiver is suspended indefinitely, head coach Karl Dorrell announced Monday. The suspension stems from a “violation of team and athletic department rules,” the release says. The athletic department typically doesn’t elaborate on the cause for suspensions and this…...

DENVER — It almost happened. Colorado played Texas A&M tough, but still fell 10-7 at Empower Field in Denver.

The defense is legit If there’s…...

BOULDER — Mekhi Blackmon made a mistake in Week 1.

After Blackmon picked off a pass in the end zone for a touchback at the end of the first half, he charged down the sideline to the other end of the field, where he posed in front of photographers with safeties Chris Miller and Mark Perry.

In the NFL, that's how just about every defense in the league celebrates forcing a turnover.

On Friday night, the celebration was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.

"I didn't know that was a flag," Blackmon told DNVR on Wednesday. "I also saw a lot of games this weekend too—TCU did the same thing and didn't get a flag, so I don't know. I guess I'll just be smarter this time."

BOULDER – FOOTBALL IS BACK! The Colorado Buffaloes topped the Northern Colorado Bears 35-7 on Friday under the lights at Folsom Field. It was the first game of the season for both teams.

BOULDER – Colorado could have had a shutout. “We had a good game, but we could have been better,” nose tackle Jalen Sami said after Friday night’s 35-7 win over Northern Colorado. “I felt we shouldn’t have allowed the team to score. We should get three-and-outs and stop the run and covered on third downs to get them off the…...

BOULDER — Dimitri Stanley was his quarterback’s best friend on Friday night. That may come as a surprise, given that the wide receiver only caught one pass and gained seven yards, but Stanley made an impact in his other starting role: punt returner. “A lot of people don’t really have the will to do it because you can’t really see…...

Jarek Broussard’s 2019 season was over before it even began due to a second torn ACL. Initially, it seemed that his 2020 season was lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic before the Pac-12 installed an abbreviated season. While he and the Buffs would only compete in five regular-season games and the Alamo Bowl, it was enough for Broussard to command…...

BOULDER – Through eight months as a Buffalo, inside linebacker Robert Barnes is thrilled with his new position coach Mark Smith.

"He's an awesome coach," Barnes said on Friday. "They're using me in a place where I've been wanting to play. My position is a perfect scenario for me and I'm just going out there every day and honing in on that position and trying to perfect my craft in that one area."

That position is the "money" linebacker in Colorado's defense, which is essentially the coverage linebacker. While Nate Landman puts his head down and blows up running backs, Barnes will have his back covering tight ends and running backs of the backfield.

"We mesh perfectly," Barnes said. "Me and him are both very vocal leaders. That helps on the field, too, because he can focus on his side and I can focus on my side. We can mesh together. We already have communication together where we don't even have to say anything."

If you've watched either of these linebackers on the field, this setup makes a lot of sense. That's why Barnes is so happy.
