    Orms got hurt midway thru WSU game. Returned for AZ game but hurt again late. Missed UCLA game. Returned for Utah game.

    Not having a D3 corner behind him made it tough. We are so much better with2 adequate corners out there. I'm optimistic that Brown can be a good DC if Embo helps him recruit.

    If we can have a CB step up so that Orms can move to safety (and stay healthy), we will have enough speed in the secondary to match up next season. Parker's a very important player for us. Playmaker.

    Brown on the pre-game radio sounded frustrated about dealing with the injuries. Mentioned that he didn't think Jared Bell would be available for spring ball and may be hampered in the fall by the knee. We are due some good luck with injuries to DBs at some point.

    I do think that Orms was hampered all season by his injury, didn't come in fully recovered. I hope that a full off-season to rehab will help him and Major regain some fo their athleticism

    That hit was a years frustration worth.

    Well, bp and rugged can Confirm, but when I saw orms was playing, I said : "we're gonna win". I also said we would lose to ucla as soon as I saw he was out. Having 2 actual corners completely changes our defense.

    Agreed. I almost threw my phone through the TV when they called that and my dad actually had to restrain me but I'm not a CU fan at all.

    That call is what's wrong with football, the defense is being screwd.

    He's going to be even more significant next year. If we can put two legit corners on the field he can play safety for us but have the ability to man cover slot recievers. That will add a huge bunch of options to what we can do on defense.

    I havent got to see that yet since I was going to get my son, Zim and Johnson said it was horrible. I missed the facemask they didnt call too. Orms makes a big difference on D. I hope Bell's knee doesnt linger, we need him and Harrington from day 1.

    They did a great job vs the run today and got pressure but the DL needs to get bigger and our LB's need to get bigger and quicker. Rippy will help. If major can be consistent and play like today, it will bode well for cu.

    Time to recruit.

    P-12 officiating has sucked all year & Larry Scott needs to speak up about it. They would have never called that penalty in the SEC

    I've always thought Orms was an underrated player. Props to him.

    Oh bull****! They are still allowed to rip a guy's head off by the face mask.

    It's true, he did say it right then. Then we argued about who said "we're gonna win" and when. But he said it then.
