    There seems to be some concern among Colorado football fans about the number of linebackers on the roster heading into the 2015 season with only two in this recruiting class.

    If you don't have a coach, what's the point in having linebackers?

    I wonder where Ringo got his idea to write about fans being concerned about no linebackers in the recruiting class? Things that make ya go "HMMMM"

    I have been meaning to say something about the over-emphasis of fans on LB. CU generally plays 2 LBs at a time. Don't expect to see more LBs on the roster than we have Safeties on the roster.

    The over-emphasis is about quality in part. We seem to be trying to force players at the position who do not fit elsewhere.

    Heck, felt like we didn't have any last year either.
