    Forman will get hired away. I hope Mac has this in his system and is not dependent on Forman.

    If he can turn our scrubs into badasses like he did at Stanford then he probably will get hired away, but to the NFL. If Shaw goes to the NFL then I think he follows.

    As a good friend is apt to say, the numbers never lie.

    Go look at our numbers, go look at Stanford's injury numbers, look at SJSU's injury numbers.

    Forman will get offers, same system, three schools, same results.

    That. Is. Not. An. Anomaly.

    Keeping your best guys on the field is far, far, far, far, far, far, far, more important than being able to rack 500lb.

    I understand that, but it's also been only one year. Keep showing progress in all facets of the game every year and I'll start to worry about losing him but until then I'm not concerned about other job offers coming in.

    CU football isn't going to lose many people associated with it right now to other teams

    A couple of years as an understudy at Furd, three years at SjSu - one or two more hear and schools that have had seasons destroyed by injury (Cal) would do well to come calling.

    We are small, slow, and not deep. Keeping that team on the field when it was consistently over matched was a championship effort. It got noticed, less so because of who we are and more so because of who we played against.

    Surprise! Surprise! I've been harping Forman and his style and practices ever since I posted links to the Furd newspaper articles that were about Turley. The Furd system has given them a huge advantage over that last few seasons, enough to take them up a couple notchs in their traditional recruiting position and on the field, as well.

    HCMM isn't kidding when he tells recruits that the CU system will change their bodies in 18 months and its this system that does it: emphasis on body muscle symmetry, correct technique, conditioning and flexibility. Money quote from the article:

    "This can all seem a bit strange at first, said Trent Murphy, a senior linebacker. Turley eliminated Murphy’s nagging injuries and helped shape him into an N.F.L. prospect.
    “Most people don’t get it,” Murphy said. “And that’s fine.”

    That reminded me of Gus Handler's earlier quote about Forman's system being so different, with its lack of emphasis on the "more reps with the most weight" philosophy, which was prevalent in prior regimes and what Handler obviously implied was the way to get him a shot in the League.

    Well he's been here 12 months, let's assume he sticks it out for the full 18 (at least). I don't think he'll be hired away until CU shows significant improvement in W/L.

    Or maybe in that facilities plan we're building a cutting edge athletic performance lab that makes this Forman's dream job and he'll stay a long, long time.

    Is that you and the mouse in your pocket "we" or are you referring to the Buffs? If so, "small" compared to whom? And just what is small?

    Stanford did not look like they had an S&C advantage over Sparty.

    Wildly over simplistic observation.

    Compared to the teams we play. To imply otherwise is extreme homerism.

    2) 6'7 275; 6'4 285; 6'1 305; 6'2 310; 6'6 295 Ave: 6'4 294

    3) 6'7 295; 6'3 300; 6'3 290; 6'2 290; 6'7 305 Ave: 6'4 295

    4) 6'4 298; 6'4 300; 6'3 290; 6'3 300; 6'5 290 Ave 6'4 295

    Good to know the starting OL encompasses an entire football team.

    Good to know media guides are accurate.

    The great OL guru himself, Maximus, has said we are too small to be good up front.... So I at least found this interesting.

    Nembot is also probably the most amazing physique in the conference, but his play, well......

    Our S&C program seems to have made a huge difference in terms of injuries. Stanford has enough numbers to claim that. Our sample size is a bit small at this point.

    Whole lotta whining here about the OL being " small for the PAC 12.

    NOT media guides, but a draft site that lists all teams' final depth charts.

    No guesses? Whatsamatta with all you expert McFlys, chicken? Or does this jus bust your meme?

    Ok WG, I was on the sideline for every home game this past year, we are not a big team and it showed by us getting pushed around by other PAC 12 teams. I had plenty of chances to compare our size to other teams size and outside of the FCS schools we weren't big. It'll change as Forman's plan progresses but as it stands we were not a big team.

    3. Nembot is the dead give-away.
