    I don't mind rooting for him 11 weeks a year, just like I'll do for Cyler Miles.

    Colorado pride.

    But, damn, both of those guys should be Buffs.

    It will hurt us for sure but you can´t get too down. It sounds like the staff put out all the stops and got closer than most people thought they could to reeling him in. I would hope that this time next year or at worst the following year, in-state guys like Ballage would choose the Buffs. Unfortunately at the skill positions in Colorado, Ballages come around very infrequently.

    Its not his fault -- but I can't help but be a little bitter when he said the long wait to sign his NLI was being torn b/w fUCLA and ASU. We spent that last week really thinking we had a shot.

    When Graham was recruiting Ballage, he told him he was his "dream running back".

    100% honest. He dreamed of Ballage playing 3 days in shorts at RB during his first camp before being moved to linebacker.

    Not too late for him to sit out and come to CU next year. Get a waiver for the coach lying to him. Lol

    That's an old Big 12 rule. Doesn't apply here.

    So, it is not a rule in the PAC that an in conference transfer has to sit out 2 years instead of one? Hmm. Didn't know that. I thought I'd heard otherwise. I didn't just dream it up. I don't think. Who knows? Maybe I did.

    I think that there's a similar pac 12 rule, like he has to sit out one year and doesn't get financial aid the other or something like that.

    You don't lose a year of eligibility if you transfer inside the conference. iirc, it is discouraged by not allowing a financial aid agreement the first year on campus while sitting out.
