    Tad Boyle can starting thinking big. Shane Harris-Tunks, Colorado's 6-11 center, practiced on Monday after missing some time with a strained quadriceps. The redshirt sophomore's surgically repaired knee, which caused him to miss the entire 2010-11 season, is no longer an issue.

    Great to hear the initial plan is to redshirt Mills. Plus to this coaching staff, but if SHT can't stay healthy that might not remain on option.

    :nod: This is fantastic news. I was pretty worried when reports said he missed the first practice cause he was icing his knee. Now it turns out his knee is not giving him any problems at all? Allsome! :dance4:

    and in response to mills...
    That is good progress. 20 more pounds and he will be dangerous :nod:

    20 more? on his frame?

    CU lists him at 220 which is probably generous, I'd assume he's around 210 given that, would be nice to see him up 40 lbs at 250+/-

    On the upside Dre's listed weight has gone from 195 to 210lbs.

    i'mma push for the distinction for "having healthy big men maybe for once in the last half decade" than that CU might be able to "go big". as in some Morriss twins or Sasha Kaun/Wayne Simien type lineup. Lonny Baxter/Chris Wilcox on your blocks. big in today's game ain't just being tall.

    what a diffference a Julius Ashby type player could have made for us last two years or the Roby/Hall senior year (with BZ letting those guys create off the dribble, as well).

    Dre has gotten HUGE. He just looks like he's gonna dominate the boards even more now.

    Not going to say these guys look good or big until they look good or big against actual competition. All relative. Too many times we look at football spring game and say everyone looks good to find out it is only because they are going against each other. I do believe the basketball team has more realistic positive expectations, but I don't want to disappoint myself.
