    In a departure from past years, CU will only be hosting one Junior Day for interested Class of 2012 football prospects. Importantly, Embree has decided to make this more of an event.... it's now the day of the Spring Game.

    Since we don't have a ton of in-state talent in Colorado (compared to places like Texas and USC), it was smart to make the Junior Day part of a bigger draw. CU schedules a bunch of events on that day, including the Healthy Kids Day and the Forever Buffs 5K Run. Last year, many of the schools had open houses for incoming/prospective students.

    I think it's a very big deal that Bohn continues to work with the CU administration to grow attendance and continue to grow this as a big EVENT. It needs to become like a spring carnival for Boulder and CU with a big crowd for the game.

    For Embree, the game and the stuff surrounding it make it a perfect weekend for prospects to visit Boulder and check out CU. Especially guys who may have high school teammates who are now playing for the Buffs. And, of course, it needs to be a cool thing for the in-state guys to want to attend.

    Also, other CU coaches should use this for their recruiting.

    Sorry for writing a book here. I'm just very excited about this. We got almost nothing out of Junior Days in the past and this is an important move that can pay big dividends.

    It's admitted student day as well. That is why a lot of the schools have the open houses. I'm a little bitter because working on Admitted student day is mandatory so I'm unable to attend the spring game now. :sad1:

    We need to be much better in landing early commitments going forward. This should help with that goal.

    I thought there was some talk about doing the spring game in the evening this year?

    Buffnik thinks it will do no good at all. Just read his first post.

    excuse me let me elaborate... do you think it will do what it does at texas... get some commitments... not to that extent but still... it would be nice to have more commits than we do currently, before fall ball starts...
