    CU defensive backs Cha'pelle Brown and D.J. Dykes each have been playing with a broken hand and will continue to do so Saturday against Oklahoma State.

    Brown had to be prodded to talk about his, insisting it's just a finger on his left hand and "it's good."

    The starting cornerback said he initially injured the digit in the second quarter of the Texas A&M game Nov. 1.

    "It isn't too bad; I can play through it," Brown said. "My adrenaline's been going, so I really don't feel anything until after the game. I don't even think about it."

    Brown wore padding on his left hand Saturday in a 28-24 win against Iowa State and had a normal workload. Dykes, who combined with Brown on the game-closing goal-line stop, apparently broke a finger during the game.

    Secondary coach Greg Brown said an X-ray indicated the finger looked like a "broken golf tee."

    My personal opinion:

    If CU can somehow find its way into a bowl game, this team deserves it so much. This year is probably exactly what Hawkins didn't want to happen!

    Wow. A lot of people don't like D.J. but my respect for him just went way up, along with Cha'pelle.

    I think people don't care for his lack of speed but I've never seen anybody doubt his leadership or toughness.

    This team definitely has character. Even if we don't go to a bowl, as an alumnus this is how I want the team to be. With the excetion of the Missouri game they have played with a tremendous amount of heart.

    One thing I will say about the Buffs is they have not laid down this year, unlike my Huskers last year, good to see them working hard so far this season.:smile:

    I will rep you for three reasons:

    1. This is a nice post.
    2. You are not coming in here talking a bunch of **** and starting fights, so I don't mind you.
    3. I don't want you to have red in your rep bar. You would like that. You should suffer with green.

    I'm glad other people felt the same way. Just don't go all Jekyl and Hyde in a couple weeks. :thumbsup:
