    CU Previews – “Reasons to be Excited” and “Reasons for Concern” for each unit




    In case you missed them in the nine weeks leading up to Fall Camp, here are links to the previews for each unit:

    Quarterbacks – Can Sefo Liufau (stay healthy and) lead CU to a bowl game this fall?

    Running backs – CU has a long list of backs with potential … will this be the season one of them lives up to the hopes and expectations of the Buff Nation?

    Wide receivers – Nelson Spruce has moved on, but CU is not lacking for candidates for the next great Buff wideout

    Tight ends/Fullbacks – Sean Irwin is a “dark horse” All-Pac-12 candidate … but may not get the opportunity to prove it this fall

    Offensive Line – There is great hope/expectation for the offensive line this fall … Will this group deliver?

    Defensive Line – With Josh Tupou and Samson Kafovalu back, the defensive line has a strong starting lineup

    Linebackers – Addison Gillam: “We have a chance to be a great defense” … (if the starters can stay healthy all season)

    Defensive backs – Chidobe Awuzie is the most decorated Buff this preseason … Will the unit as a whole deliver this fall?

    Special teams – Both starting specialists are back this fall, but it is the return game which could be “special” in 2016
