BOULDER — The day finally came: Antonio Alfano is no longer a Colorado Buffalo.

BuffZone.com's Brian Howell reported Friday morning that Alfano is no longer enrolled at CU and is no longer a part of the Buffs' football program. Alfano first joined the Buffs in January as a transfer from Alabama and was suspended indefinitely in early March for violating team rules.

The Pac-12 is allowing member programs to begin in-person, voluntary athletic workouts on June 15, according to a conference press release Tuesday afternoon. Schools will still be required to follow state and local regulations regarding in-person gatherings.

Student-athletes at Pac-12 member universities, including Colorado, will be allowed to do strength and conditioning work at team facilities. Student-athletes can work in small groups in the weight room or using other team facilities but larger groups will still be required to work online.

BOULDER — There’s a new reason for college sports fans to feel hopeful. The NCAA Division I Council voted Wednesday to lift its moratorium on voluntary workouts for three sports. Football players, as well as men’s and women’s basketball players, will no longer be violating NCAA policy if they work out at team facilities, starting June 1. The council will…...

The Colorado Buffaloes didn’t realize their annual post-spring camp depth chart because… well, there wasn’t spring camp. So instead of analyzing their depth chart, I’ve created my own and today we’re talking wide receivers. Let’s get straight to the point. Here’s my two-deep for the Buffs’ receivers (three starters and three backups): Wide Receiver 1: K.D. Nixon, Maurice Bell Wide…...

Karl Dorrell wants eight weeks of practice before his team plays its first game.

"I'd like to have a month of conditioning and training to get (the team) in shape and then a month of training camp before playing games," Dorrell said in a media call on Tuesday.

However, the new coach of the Colorado Buffaloes football team isn't optimistic.

"I don't think we are going to get anything close to that," he said.

There was no spring football. We don’t need to dig into everything we’ve missed out on because there was no spring football, but one of the big ones is a depth chart. Typically, the first two-deep of the year is released shortly after the end of camp and, for the most part, it’s about what you’ll see during the season.…...

After 39 starts and a school-record 61 touchdown passes, Steven Montez is leaving Colorado.

The quarterback wasn't chosen in April's NFL Draft, but he was offered $35,000 in guaranteed money from the Washington Redskins shortly after. That money comes in the form of a $10,000 signing bonus and $25,000 of his 2020 season salary being guaranteed.

Now, the challenge for Montez is winning a job, either on the 53-man roster or on the practice squad, during training camp.

Here's everything you need to know about Montez's fit with the Washington Redskins:

With the COVID-19 situation in flux, there's uncertainty almost everywhere within the Colorado Buffaloes' athletic department.

"There are a lot of different scenarios on the table," Buffsathletic director Rick George said Thursday. "We have groups that are working on what all those different scenarios look like from a competitive standpoint. And we're not just talking football, we're talking about all fall sports. So, if football doesn't play or it is pushed back, it would be very similar to all of our other fall sports."

If the trophy stores are still open, somebody had better be making one for Tad Boyle.

Just one month removed from a flameout that ended what was supposed to be the greatest basketball season in Colorado history, Boyle has extended his program's Pac-12 title window through the 2020-21 season.

In fact, CU's championship odds may be better this year than they were last year.

That's not to say the Buffs' newly-restocked frontcourt is more talented than the 2019-20 version — it isn't — but the team may be better built for success now than ever before.

There's a new Colorado Buffalo.

Former Tulsa forward Jeriah Horne is headed to Boulder as a graduate transfer. Horne figures to slot in as the Buffs' new starting power forward, replacing Tyler Bey. Horne will have one year of eligibility at Colorado.

Horne and Bey are not the same player. In many ways, they couldn't play the power forward position more differently. Despite that, Horne looks to be a solid veteran addition who can help keep the Buffaloes in the top tier of the Pac-12.

Horne grew up in Kansas City, where he was a three-star power forward prospect and ranked 43rd at his position in the 2016 class. He signed with Nebraska, declining offers from Depaul, West Virginia, Missouri and others.

Horne cracked Nebraska's regular rotation in December of his rookie season and posted five double-digit scoring games, despite averaging under five points per contest.

Here's a clip from the first time Horne played 20 minutes of meaningful college basketball:

That's an athletic play and a remarkable finish, but Horne is actually known as more of a shooter than a driver.

Horne transferred to Tulsa after his freshman season. Following a game during his sophomore season, UConn head coach Dan Hurley had this to say about Horne:

“Defensively, we did a horrible job on Horne,” Hurley said, according to a Tulsa World story on Horne. “To allow a guy who’s a one-dimensional, catch-and-shoot player to have that many good looks — it spoke to how we weren’t locked in.”

That was Horne's reputation, and it's easy to see why; Horne shot over 37 percent from deep as a sophomore, though that number fell to 34 percent as a junior this season.

Horne's game has developed since the game against UConn.

Today we're going to be digging into Horne's tape at Tulsa. Specifically, we'll be using clips from a January contest against No. 20 Memphis, in which Tulsa upset the Tigers.
