    Almost a month away, so something to try and make some time fly. Who do you see having a breakout year?

    Personally, I think we'll finally see why Maurice Lucas was such a heavily recruited DE coming out of high school. He was this big time in-state 4* DE who chose CU and so far has underachieved. I think he breaks out this year in his junior season. Certainly has the body.

    i hope it is either cody or nelson.

    if either of them have one of those monster "where did he come from" breakout years as the starting qb, it will mean our Buffs have won a lot more games than anyone expected.

    there is no more critical position in american team sports than qb. this is a guy who can affect the outcome of the game on every offensive play.

    just by way of example, had klatt not lost his redshirt to a one snap appearance, he'd have been eligible to play last season. ask yourself how many more games the Buffs would have won with klatt at qb in 06. no slam against bjax, but i'd bet CU would have made a bowl game with klatt.

    i don't care which of these guys gets the nod, just so whomever does can run the entire playbook, make the receivers look good, and rally the team.

    YEP, the impact on the team, recruiting and the fan base would be way cool. It would create a big wave of momentum for the future.

    I think this is the case probably more than someone breaking out at any other position although a back that rushes for 1,700 yards wouldn't be bad either.

    Question is can Charles do it?
    If there is a passing game maybe it could happen.

    He can definitely do 1000+ if he stays healthy and has room to run. He has trouble making room for himself, though. He's got some serious speed and moves in the open, though.
