    Greetings, Buff fans, from www.cuatthegame.com

    Well, here we are. The Buffs are 3-0, and on the verge of being nationally ranked. What stands between Colorado and poll recognition? Only the fourth-ranked defense in the nation (yes, I know some of Florida State’s stats are the result of victories over trampled Division II opponents. Then again, this same unit in 2007 stymied the Colorado offense into an unwanted school record minus-27 yards rushing).

    In this week’s “T.I.P.S.”:


    T - Talent. The Florida State suspensions have been served. Will it make a difference? Will a Florida State quarterback finally step up?
    I - Intangibles. The Buffs are coming off an emotional win. The Seminoles are coming off an emotional loss. Chalk one up for CU.
    P - Preparation/Schedule. Colorado had an extra two days to get up for Florida State. For the Seminoles, the Buffs represent a sandwich game, coming between two crucial ACC battles. Advantage. CU.
    S - Stats. Granted, the Florida State defense racked up some of its impressive numbers against over-matched opponents early, but this is the same squad which stuffed the Buffs in Boulder last season. Plus, can anyone tell me why Colorado can’t score within the boundaries of the State of Florida?

    Archive Game of the Week


    If you don’t like this one, you’re not a Buff fan. As Colorado has not played well against Florida State (47-7 and 16-6 losses), I chose another game played in the Sunshine State. The final score was 10-9. You know the rest.

    This Date in History

    Games including John Elway and Earl Campbell are featured. Interested in #1 Oklahoma v. #2 Miami (1986)? How about Ben Kelly saving the Buffs against Wyoming (1997)?

    Okay, off you go - www.cuatthegame.com

    Go Buffs!

    What's your feeling on the OL situation?

    Not good. While it is true that Devin Head and Blake Behrens have started, the three man rotation is now down to just two, with no experience behind them. If either of these two get hurt, we're looking at inserting another red-shirt freshman (Shawn Daniels?). While youth is not an unusual trait for this group, we have to remember that the next freshman up will be a red-shirt freshman who did not beat out MTM, a true freshman, in camp.

    Cody and Helfrich will get the blame, but if the Buffs are ineffective on offense, it's because the o-line is still paper thin.:huh:

    I think shawn daniels played quite a bit against EWU, he was the one getting knocked around pretty good. I might be wrong?

    Daniels hasn't played yet (according to the CU media release). Only six offensive linemen, including MTM, have seen action so far.

    That will probably change this weekend. We've got five starters, and no one with experience to spell them. :sad1:
