    For reasons unknown, the yearly series of questionable profit continues this weekend.* Reality and logic be damned, we're headed back to Invesco Sports Authority Field to face the CSU Rams.* You can find my last two previews in this series here and here.

    In case you missed it, star wide-out Paul Richardson, who had previously hoped to return this year from an off-season ACL tear, will shut it down and redshirt this fall.* Many people, including Richardson himself, had openly speculated that he could return as early as the Pac-12 opener at Washington State, but now the Buffs will officially be without the speedy wide receiver's services until the start of next season.

    I was not completely surprised by this announcement.* During his radio show Tuesday, Coach Embree alluded to the fact that P-Rich had an upcoming announcement.* Considering that he was already ruled out of the first two games, and that coaches would never confirm his playing status this far out from games later in the season, the only logical explanation was that he was announcing a redshirt.

    Paul is obviously devastated, but it's for the best.* From: the BDC
    It's probably for the best, as the kid has a very bright playing future, and should make sure he's 100% healthy before risking re-injury.* I know he wants to play, but sometimes you need to be pragmatic.* The notion of him coming back mid-season always struck me as unnecessarily risky, anyway.

    As it pertains to game-planning for this weekend, coaches have known since spring ball that P-Rich would be unavailable for the CSU game, so it's business as planned.*

    *--

    The offseason is over!* Actual sports are about to actually happen!

    We've been in the dark for weeks as the team slogged through fall practice behind a media blackout.* Now, there's no hiding from the spotlight.* I just hope they got their **** together while the doors were closed.

    Kickoff of the 84th Rocky Mountain Showdown is set for for 2pm Saturday afternoon.* For those of you unable/unwilling to make the trek to Denver, coverage can be seen on FX (with Joel Klatt!), or heard on 850 KOA (with Mark Johnson!).
