    Get your popcorn out.

    We'll have CU on the news tonight, a ton of online articles on the different programs throughout the day, lots of stuff on social media, and then a bunch of CU stuff in the Sunday papers.

    One of my favorite things all year. It's all back and it's all about hope since every single CU program is undefeated for it's 2014-15 year.

    :popcorn:

    Tyler McCulloch is on now. Looks good, guys. Says he's totally healthy after his foot limiting him so much last year.

    btw, Sefo's arms looked twice the size they did last year and McCulloch looks pretty ripped.

    Liking these player interviews. MacIntyre presser coming up after they're done.

    Nelson Spruce on talking about WR depth and Sefo & him developing so much more chemistry working together this offseason.

    Plus his own development by being a technician.

    One thing I'd read this week that really impressed me on Spruce was when Sefo said that Spruce actually took the time to sit on and listen to the QB meetings to better understand what they're looking for and how their progressions go. Dude is a real pro. He's going to have a huge season.

    Derek McCartney up now.

    Already completed 76 hours of coursework heading into his RS-Frosh year. :wow:

    He's an impressive young man. Handling the extra media attention from the legacy thing very, very well.

    Talking up Tupou.

    Juda Parker.

    Those guns look huge!

    He was talking about it all starting up front for the defense. "If the rest of the defense sees the big guys running and making plays, they'll rally to that." (paraphrasing)

    Also talked about being very impressed with this freshman class and mentioned that they're really smart.

    Addison Gillam.

    The hair is... wait for it... FEATHERED AND LETHAL! :lol:

    Talked up Rick Gamboa as a freshman who has impressed him. Says he's smart and picking things up quickly.

    Kenneth Crawley.

    Holy hell is he ripped. Looks like an NFL corner. For those with a Rivals sub, there are some photos from practice the other day and KC passes the eyeball test and then some.

    Was soft spoken, but he obviously has a ton of confidence in his ability. Impressive that he talked up Ahkello and Chido to give them props. He's in a position battle with those guys. That shows that his position group is pretty tight (and that he's confident he'll win that battle). Loved that.

    MacIntyre up next with presser and Mark Johnson interview.

    Goals for the program?

    "Same as they were when I came in. I want to build this program into a national power again."

    One reporter asked about whether he'd be happy with 6-6 to get to a bowl game.

    Mac responded with, "We play 12 games, right?"

    Went on to talk about how he'll expect to go 1-0 every week.

    It's sort of coach speak, but it's also different than what we've heard.

    Reminded me of Big Al on the radio talking about playing for Dave Shula in Cincinnati. Shula came in and tried to break the season down into 4-game segments and addressed the team with how they needed to be 4-4 going into the back half of the season when the schedule became more favorable. Big Al was pissed. He got up and said, "Which 4 do you want us to lose, Coach?". (Close enough to how he told the story on the radio, at least, to make the point here.)

    The thing is, not every coach gets it. You don't set goals of 6 wins or 10 wins or whatever. You work the damn process and expect to win every single time you compete.

    Rep to CMGoods. On a quick search, I couldn't find a link to the Crawley interview that Nik referenced. Has anyone else found it?

    Really curious about his weight. He was listed at 170 on the depth chart but he looks much bigger than that

    great stuff. Thanks so much for posting the videos, cm!

    Our guys seem to have great media presence. They are all very business-like and seem to be ready to go play as well as they possibly can. I really hope they succeed as much for them as for my school pride
