    It still amazes Christian Powell to look back and see what he has accomplished as a running back at Colorado.

    Powell's biggest issue will always be hitting the hole fast enough. I hope that's something he put considerable time into.

    The photos of him in camp, he looks lighter. Not sure if that is true or just how he looks. He will never have the speed like guys like lindsay or carr or adkinis have, but he can be a very very effective RB if he can be a bit shiftier.

    Agreed. He looks very cut in the photos we've seen and seems to be down in weight a little.

    Just checked the rosters, and he is the same weight he was a freshman. Definitely tell its different weight now though.
