    I was only able to stay for little over an hour (homework) so this recap will be short

    Notes:

    They practiced outside the bubble today for the first time. This really helps a lot IMO. The offense can stay on one field, and the defense on the other. They don't have to bunch together and share the same field. It was a beautiful day...nice to catch some Spring Ball. There were no injuries that I saw!!

    Jon Major was practicing for the first time. He had a nice big knee brace on and looked hesitant out there. He does look pretty big tho. Sipili is HUGE. I think we'll see a different Sipili then in year's past. The LB's were working a lot on stripping the ball.

    I saw Ray Polk doing some non-contact work...interesting since he wasn't supposed to participate in Spring Ball...

    The biggest news today IMO was Ryan Miller and Matt Bahr were NOT in pads. They were dressed but didn't participate in any drills. Neither appeared to be visibly injured.... THe OL is still doing the snapping drills.

    Simas looked impressive again today. IMO...if it weren't for last year, you would not know J-Fly is one of the best players on the team. He either has a nagging injury or is soft. He seems to take himself out of drills a lot grabbing his side or half-limping.

    For those conspiracy theorists, Hansen and Ballenger both got to work with the #1 Offense. During the 11 on 11's, the offense looked very sloppy. There were a couple dropped passes. Hansen couldn't find a receiver and didn't run right away, so that's a plus I suppose. None of the QB's looked great today IMO (this was all before 5:15 when I left).

    DeVaughn Thornton, Quentin Hildreth, a walk-on TE I believe, and 2010 LG Austin Schuefele were in attendance. Watch Schuefele's vid on youtube, pretty impressive. That's all I could remember. Anyone feel free to add more. Go Buffs

    I was there as well and as far as I know Miller has a concussion (based upon a Facebook status).

    I also was impressed with the linebackers. Count it that they will NOT be a weak spot this season. Even with the 3-4 they were the ones putting pressure on the QB.

    OK. Listen kid. Your homework is reporting practice to us Allbuffers. Nothing more. Nothing less. Capice?

    So, you get a B- for not spending more time on your "homework!"

    Okay, then. I read in several places that Goodman had a "bad day" ... all different stats. This is the first and only report that mentioned the WIND was involved.

    Much relief.

    Thanks to Thin Air Sports for the important detail.

    Jeremy Bloom was white. Does this mean we have the next Jeremy Bloom waiting to bust out?

    I guess I'm the only one that's uncomfortable with placing limits on a kid because he isn't black. Especially in this offense, when you're sending like 4-5 guys out on routes.

    IMO McKnight was our most reliable receive last year. Espinoza was hurt, otherwise I bet he would've helped us a lot. White guys.

    Unrelated to color, "J-Fly" had great speed, otherwise would NOT have been on the field with any competition at that position. His hands, routes, and endurance were all unreliable. He has a long way to go as a Big 12 wide receiver. With the talent coming in at that position, he might very well be a backup this coming year. He'll either learn the position or be a special teams guy.

    He also needs to start lifting some weights. That guy has been at CU a while and still looks like a scawny HS senior.

    Umm, you can be plenty strong and not have excess muscle like a lot of football players do. He lifts and he lifts hard, I can guarantee you that with Pittman as our S&C coach. What he needs to do is EAT, EAT, EAT.

    "The receivers on scholarship include juniors Scotty McKnight, CU’s leader in 2008 with 46 catches, and Josh Smith. The other is Markques Simas, the talented sophomore who redshirted in 2007 and was academically ineligible in 2008. Kiesau said Simas has all Bs or better in his classes this semester, and he’s expected to be fine for the fall."

    Great news regarding Simas.

    Is Mario Conte the walk on you guys are talking about?

    Seems like a stretch.
