    And by that, I mean by Buff fans other than 96 Buff:

    1. Stewart's value to the Buff's offense.

    2. The effort put forth by the Buffs against NU. We only had one 4 or 5 star on the field for this game and over 10 players had surgery after this game.

    I'm sure I can come up with more, but curious to see what other people think.

    1) The role of the TE in the absence of Helfrich. Will Devenny, Deehan, and Geer be masters of the downfield block with the help of Kent Riddle and the Kiesau offense? With Hawkins picking up WR coaching responsibilities, how much will that spill over on the TEs? Can Geer get back to his underclassman productivity?

    2) Now that Denver Johnson has had some time to settle in, what can we expect? What kind of impact are new and seasoned coaches like Denver Johnson and Bob Foster's having on the players? How are they getting along with the rest of the coaching staff?

    Here are some overlooked stats:

    CU was just penalized 65 times for 516 yards (Second lowest number of penalties in the last 18 years for CU)

    10 of the 12 quarterbacks CU faced last season were held below their season rating

    Only allowed one 300+ yard passing game in Big XII play

    CU held their one point lead against KSU for 25:49; This was the longest any team was able to hold a 1 or 2 point lead in 2008.

    CU tied for the 2nd best graduation rate in the Big XII at 70%.

    8-2 - Dan Hawkins record following a bye week

    100% - The conversion percentage on 3rd and 1 yard runs by Rodney Stewart (5 for 5)

    99% - Nate Solder's grade against KSU - The best since Joe Garten recorded a 100% grade against NU in 1990.

    95 - The number of freshmen who have started games for CU in '07 and '08 (41 true)

    Took these from the CU media day guide, which can be found here:

    I think Lockridge is gonna be huge for us this year. He can play a bunch of different spots and teams will have a tough time mathcing up against him
