    For CU fans who know nothing about him. Big (6'5' 218) smart kid (4.0 student) who is raw. A four star out of highschool. Originally committed to Arizona State and backed out after ASU fired its offensive coordinator. Had offers to play at ASU, Northwestern, Boston College, Maryland, and Harvard. Looks like he will be Fairchilds' personal project for the next four seasons.

    Most of us know him. He visited here and we didn't offer.

    If I am not mistaken Hirschman already committed; correct?

    Other way around. We had Thomas out for a visit, didn't offer. Then we had Hirschman out and offered a couple days later while he was at the USC camp working out for them. Then Thomas gave his verbal to CSU. I think he was our backup plan if we didn't get Hirschman, though, but the coaches had serious questions about his mobility and throwing motion.

    Damn, a true freshman QB starting for a team that's lost 9 straight. Shouldn't this be an ass-whoopin'?

    Yeah that sounds right. Couldn't remember how that all went down. I think CSU has been working on his throwing motion which was pretty slow coming out of school. He looked better this spring. His mobility is a question mark. He is definitely a pro-style pocket passer.

    I think this season's game should be an easy win for CU in all honesty. True freshman QB in his first collegiate start is trouble IMO.

    How are you feeling about your OL? You had a ton of starting experience last year. Not so much this year.

    Didn't you lose a ton at WR and in the secondary also?

    I've also heard that you've had some questions on the DL, especially at DE. True?

    Basically, the scouting report I've gotten is that you've got better LBs and RBs than you've had in a long time, that you've got a pretty good tight end, but that you've got big question marks everywhere else.

    Are you guys seriously going to question the kid's academic credentials when he was offered by both Northwestern and Harvard?

    I believe that Arizona State saw Pete Thomas as another Andrew Walter type. Walter had some success there.

    Yes. I think that is accurate. Although I am one who believes the O-Line will be alright. We lost alot on the interior, but the tackles look adequate and experienced. LT Starr (6'5 290-SR) and RT Madsen (6'5 310-JR) both played significant minutes and started multiple games last season. Also, I think the back-up RT Caprioglio (6'6' 310-SO), who had at least one BCS offer, has a chance as well. The interior is in flux, but again has experience. I have no concerns about the LG Gdwoski (6'3 303-JR), but I am concerned about C McDermott (6'3 285-JR) and the RG position. All in all - I think you will see 1 Senior and 4 Juniors on the line. Seems like a classic case of a line that will need time, but given that they have been in the program for a while they will gel and be solid by season's end.

    The WRs are a question mark, but actually have size this season. Steele (6'3 210-SO) has looked great in camp. Borcky (6'4 210 - JR) made the permanent move to WR. If Law (6'3 - 205-SO) can get going then I like the wideouts. Greenwood (6'0 - 205-SO) moved in to the slot and the guy that has been the talk of camp is Tony Drake (5'9 185-FR). Drake comitted to Michigan but didn't make the grade. Apparently he has been fantastic so far and will see time.

    DL is a concern. Although I do think DE CJ James (6'3 250-SO) is going to be really good. DTs Miller (6'3 303-SR) and Latu (6'2 309 - JR) have the size, but the other DE position is a total debacle. I hope they move Whittier (6'5 265 - SR) back to the outside.

    The strength of the team is the LBs and RBs - no question about it. The defense will be as good as Sisson and Brewer make it. I can't wait to watch the RBs. This spring you couldn't tell them apart on the sidelines. They are all built the same (6'0 215), but Carter (JR-UCLA transfer) supposedly has an extra gear and will start. Nwoke (FR) and Mason (SR) will rotate.

    Easy math. He obviously thinks 16.67% with his dick and 83.3% with his head.

    I don't think they were questioning the kid's IQ - they were making a statement that Arizona State does not belong in that list, academically speaking.

    Exactly...maybe we should question CC's academic credentials. Reading comprehension issues could prevent him from being a good poster.

    CSU's DLine was a concern last season too. That didn't stop them from pushing us around on our own field last season.

    OK guys here's a little tidbit. A certain CSU coach is a relative of a certain CU defensive back.

    He thinks the WR's are better than last year and will be VERY good.

    Bottom line if Dan Hawkins doesn't win vs CSU, he should be fired before the bus ride back to Boulder. No excuses.

    I really hope he is right. Everything I have read it seems like Steele is ready for primetime. Everyone else seems to be fighting for that outside No. 2 spot with Drake, Liggit, and Greenwood manning the slot.

    Honestly, I just really loved Fort Collins. I lived in the Old Town area almost my entire time there. Boulder was just never my style I guess.
