    Happy 4th, AllBuffers!

    On BuffStampede, we had fans nominate, then vote for the four individuals that had the greatest positive impact in the history of CU football... next off-season, I plan to do a CU Mount Rushmore for every position. Free read: https://colorado.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1656251

    My first place vote went to McCartney.

    I think the fans got it right on this one. I'm not sure that RS would even win the vote for "Best CU Running Back", but that Heisman Trophy is a BFD. And I guess the NFL scouts rated him as the best based on where he was drafted.

    The OL, LB, and secondary arguments will be a lot of fun.

    McCartney, Salaam, Whizzer, Ralphie

    That 4th spot is tough to decide on another player. I had too much internal conflict debating the merits of Hagan vs. Bieniemy, and whether one of the Andersons or Joe Romig belongs on the rock instead of another Mac-era player. Just went with the buffalo. She's more recognizable a face of the program than anyone else.

    I think Rae Carruth helped put a lot of things in perspective.
