BOULDER — Outside expectations are high for Nate Landman as he enters his senior season. The CU linebacker made the preseason watchlist for the Butkus Award, which goes to the nation’s best linebacker, and the Nagurski Trophy, which goes to the nation’s top defensive player.
He’s not all that interested, though.
“I appreciate the honor but that’s not what I’m focused on,” Landman told reporters Wednesday. “I’d rather go undefeated and win games with my team than win any of the awards.”
