    To the Colorado student body, alumni, and Buffs fans everywhere:

    Despite some trying times on the gridiron, my time here at Colorado has been fantastic. I have enjoyed three memorable victories over our arch-rival in the Rocky Mountain Showdown and relished triumphs over perennial powerhouses like Georgia, West Virginia, and Oklahoma. Most of all though, I will never forget the friends that I’ve met and the lessons that I have learned during my time here. Your support and encouragement have been amazing, and I can never thank you enough for allowing me the privilege to represent this fine university, both on and off the football field.

    While our team may have fallen short of reaching a bowl game these past few years, it was not for lack of effort, or heart, or leadership. We gave our best every day, and I leave here with the knowledge and confidence that my teammates will deliver a bright future for you in the new athletic conference that awaits us. Believe me, I can’t wait for us to beat the Cornhuskers in the Rose Bowl soon enough.

    I leave Boulder with a heavy heart, but the great times I experienced here will never be forgotten. I am a Colorado Man through and through and a forever Buff. Thanks for everything.

    Go Buffs,
    Nate Solder

    Well, except for the "scholar in the classroom" thing. I mean, we want to compete with the SEC schools don't we?

    Class act. A worthy caretaker of our tradition. If I can ever do anything for you in the future, Nate, you are part of my family!

    Do any of you remember about 5 years ago there was a guy who ran amok in the UMC. I think he had a knife or a gun or something. Nobody was hurt, but it caused quite a stir. A bunch of students were interviewed on TV. One of the students was Nate Solder. Not because he was a football player - at the time nobody really knew who he was - but because he was a witness. I remember being very impressed with him then as an 18-year old Freshman.

    Actually someone was hurt .... another freshman's neck was slashed. Fortunately it wasn't as serious as it could have been, since it missed the carotid artery by less than an inch.

    The perp was a paranoid schizophrenic.
