    That is a tough list to read. Especially this time of the year.

    No ****, I mean it happens everywhere but it seems we get more of it and it's players we can't afford to lose if we want to take that next step. We need all hands on deck.

    that list hurts our depth for sure, but only has marginal impact on the potential starters...

    i'm still not in the DOOM camp yet.

    I'm nowhere near doom but we need mostly everyone on deck to have the season we fans,hawk and the players want.

    We are fine at most positions but WR and DE are two we don't need injuries are any other nonsense.

    Last year at this time that list looked like this:

    Kai Maiava- transfer
    Wes Palazzi- transfer
    Jarrell Yates- transfer
    R.J. Brown- concussions
    Riar Geer- Suspended from first games of season
    Simas- Academics
    Tau- Academics
    Katoa- Academics & Discipline
    Fataagi- Academics
    Lamont Smith- Academics
    Espinoza- Broke collarbone
    Lockridge- Injury forced him to redshirt
    Major- ACL tear
    Iltis- ACL tear
    Hudgins- ACL tear
    Burney- Multiple surgeries
    Vigo- greyshirt

    We then lost Stewart, Brace, Miller, MTM, Vaiomunga, Celestine, Walters, and Dykes during the season.

    I would like to compare the last 2 off-seasons for CU vs every other NCAA program and see if anyone has had a worse fate. I doubt it.

    So any given season, we are only playing with two-thirds of the schollie team?

    We have had some tough breaks, but we need to continue to build depth and take some academic risks to compete.

    Syko, you make a good point but, I think you would see similar attrition in top programs. Our problem is their Ministry of Propaganda has the local media (BDC/Denver) and school/admin (admissions/Hoffman/Disc. Committee) under control, plus an unwavering fan base.
