Buffs basketball is nearly back. Evan Battey and Jabari Walker have moved on to the professional ranks while Elijah Parquet and Keeshawn Barthelemy hit the transfer portal leaving this year’s team with plenty of questions to answer. Who will jump in and fill the leadership void left by Battey? Who will lead the team in scoring? Do the Buffs have…...

“The theme of the day was energy.” Colorado interim head coach Mike Sanford said as he addressed the media in his first press conference as the leader of CU football. No one took Tuesday’s theme more seriously than Sanford himself. Buffs’ media were allowed to watch practice on Tuesday for the first time this year during a brief 20-minute window...

The calendar just turned over to October but Rick George and CU saw enough through the Buffs’ first five games of the season, it was time to fire Karl Dorrell. The last time George was in this situation, it was an absolute scramble to replace Mel Tucker as the current Michigan State head coach left Colorado in the middle of February 2020. Now, George has the chance to let the 2022 football season play out and pick Colorado football’s 28th head football coach from a long list of potential candidates. While it may be too early in the season to know exactly who is in play for head coaching positions in this year’s coaching carousel, here are 26 coaches that…

After Colorado fired head coach Karl Dorrell on Sunday afternoon, two of CU’s most prominent university figures, chancellor Philip DiStefano and athletic director Rick George, introduced Mike Sanford as the Buffs’ interim head coach.  As the book was closed on the Karl Dorrell era at CU, George, DiStefano and Sanford emphasized their admiration, respect and the integrity that Dorrell possesses....

After the 2021 season, Colorado had questions at nearly every position but the front seven. Nate Landman was moving on to the NFL but Quinn Perry, Terrance Lang, Robert Barnes, Guy Thomas, Jalen Sami and Na’Im Rodman were returning. Then in late April, Josh Chandler-Semedo announced that he would be joining the Buffs via the transfer portal. It seemed like Colorado’s front seven would be the unquestioned best unit for CU again this year. Then the games started. Through four games, Colorado has the worst rushing defense in the country and it’s not even close. To put in perspective how bad the Buffs run defense has been, UCLA rushed for 249 yards on Colorado’s defense last week, yet CU’s season…

Owen McCown and Jordyn Tyson are leading a charge of young Buffs who will be seeing increased playing time in the near future. In Saturday’s game against UCLA, Colorado started quarterback Owen McCown, wide receiver Chase Sowell and left guard Van Wells. That was the first time the Buffs started three true freshmen on offense in the same game since...

Head coach Karl Dorrell and Colorado made the decision to start true freshman Owen McCown last week and while the final score was not much different than the last three weeks, it appears that Colorado has a quarterback. McCown’s performance last Saturday against UCLA was what coach Dorrell called, “our best passing production in two years.” Against the Bruins, McCown...

Colorado is entering their third straight game of being at least 21-point underdogs this weekend when UCLA rolls into Folsom. UCLA barely escaped against South Alabama at home last week which suggests that this team is capable of playing down to their competition. The Buffs have yet to find any type of offensive momentum this season and it looks like...

Going into the season, the depth of the Colorado football team was emphasized by head coach Karl Dorrell and staff.

Karl Dorrell’s seat is nearly boiling hot. After the Buffs lost their third and final nonconference game on Saturday 49-7 to the Minnesota Gophers, University of Colorado Athletic Director Rick George put out a statement to Buffs fans. “I want you to know that I hear you. I recognize and understand your disappointment and frustration and perhaps, even anger. We...

Colorado is seeking some revenge this weekend. This time last year, CU welcomed Minnesota to Folsom Field where the Gophers blew out the Buffs 30-0. Minnesota went on to finish 9-4 last season with a victory in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl against West Virginia. Many of the Gophers’ most important players in last year’s matchup returned to school and will...

Colorado wraps up their out-of-conference schedule with another tough opponent as they travel to Minnesota to take on a Gophers team that beat them 30-0 one year ago. It’s been a brutal stretch for the Buffs who are looking to find any type of offensive momentum before heading into PAC-12 conference play. We will get confirmation tomorrow, but at least...

Be careful what you wish for. After a season opener in which Brendon Lewis played most of the game, Colorado fans and cognoscenti were wondering why J.T. Shrout did not play more. Shrout started and played every offensive snap in Saturday’s game against Air Force, a game that became a comedy of errors. The weather may have played a factor...

When it comes to the triple-option, it’s not a complicated offense in theory. What makes the triple-option a lethal offense for Army, Navy and Air Force is the fact it only takes one guy out of position, one missed tackle, one lapse in responsibility and they can make you pay. Can a corner cover a back or receiver for 30 run plays and not lose focus on the 31st play when the offense finally throws the football? Can the defender responsible for the pitchman avoid trying to make a play quarterback for the entire game? Colorado’s discipline, mental strength and patience will be tested this weekend. Saturday will be the 18th time Colorado and Air Force face off. Colorado holds…

Two of Colorado’s newest players have already been able to positively impact the Buffs both on and off the field. R.J. Sneed and Josh Chandler-Semedo were CU’s two biggest additions from the transfer portal and both are expected to fill positions of need and contribute immediately in 2022.

With his team on a short week, Colorado head football coach, Karl Dorrell, spoke to the media on Tuesday for the last time until after Friday night’s season opener. Much of the off-season conversation has been based on the quarterback competition between J.T. Shrout and Brendon Lewis. Dorrell has maintained a level of confidence and ambiguity as to how the...
