    Fall Camp Notes






    July 31st

    Buffs on the Pac-12 Networks … “The Drive” will be in town for the Arizona State game

    The Pac-12 Network’s Football Training Camp is set for its annual visit to Colorado on August 16 for the 2016 preview to tape an hour-long program. The Network will return the week of October 10 to spend several days filming “The Drive” ahead of CU’s game with Arizona State; the network plans to visit each school for a week during the season instead of shadowing one or two throughout the year.





    CU has 62 lettermen returning

    Colorado has 62 lettermen returning for 2015 (58 from the 2015 team, with four others past years); they break down into 28 on offense, 31 on defense and 3 specialists; the Buffs lose 26 lettermen off the 2015 squad (11 offense/14 defense/1 specialist).

    CU returns 18 starters from last season (9 offense/9 defense), losing 4 (2 offense/2 defense); several positions had multiple personnel shuttle in and out, so there are several other players back with starting experience.
