    I just received a message from Dave Plati informing us that Cullen Bryant passed away. He was 58 years old. He was a defensive back at Colorado and a running back in the NFL. I recall Cullen as somewhat quiet off the field, but he was a fierce competitor on the field. He earned All-American honors in 1972.

    Cullen was a good guy. I remember Billie Drake used to call him Cullie. Billie's locker was right next to Cullen's and mine was just across from them in the fall of 1971. Billie was quite a character and liked to stir things up a bit. Cullen didn't like the "Cullie" deal all that much and would look at Billie with a funny expression on his face as if he realized maybe Billie had too many concussions.:smile:

    Those were the days. Rest In Peace, Cullen.

    RIP. I remember seeing him on campus - a huge guy. Played pro in LA as I recall. 58 is a litle young imo.

    Me too. Hard to believe he was a db in college (but back then, CU ran a 4-4-3 defense). He was one of the players they had on when they did the fund-drive to install astroturf. Dude was huge!

    R.I.P. Cullen Bryant. I have fond memories of those teams.

    One of my relatives "Jack Epple" played guard on the 71 & 72 Buffs team. He used to tell us Cullen was a feared corner in the Big 8 who also had the biggest d**k you have ever seen.

    RIP

    He was a great Buff, and wasn't he the strongest guy on the team? Seems I remember reading he benched over 400lbs.
