    Will a game like this show the skill position recruits that we can play an explosive game? Maybe get a RB? This offense with a running game? Scary stuff.

    Optimist: "Cool offense, they just need a running back! That could be me!"

    Pessimist: "Oh, so they're a passing team that doesn't showcase the RB, huh? Screw that! I'll send another tape to Stanford."

    I'll need to see a bigger sample size of games to see if they can keep momentum and show the recruits it's more than just getting over on our weakest opponent we'll play all year. But I am encouraged that a culture change and us at least staying in games and playing until the last whistle gets the attention of skilled prospects of all positions.

    Keep scoring 40 points a game with this many guys getting a chance to catch or carry the ball every week and recruits will flock to CU. It's a fun offense and there's a good opportunity to play early.

    WRs and TEs should definitely love it.

    RBs.. we tried to run it a solid amount. I'd guess it was 60/40 without looking at the stats. We probably can't promise Stanford level carries for a kid, but we aren't avoiding the ground game.

    Cade Apsay must be liking what he saw.

    Makes sense, Nik. Hopefully they see an opportunity - same for prized OL recruits.

    I wouldn't expect a bunch of new recruits to line up after one game, but it definitely gives the staff more credibility with existing targets. I'm sure they're already selling a fast-paced offense with the opportunity to put up big numbers, but now they can point to this game as an example.

    Yes. This is a very promising start on offense.

    Wood throwing for 400 yards to start the season? Talk about best case scenario in that department

    I am certainly hoping it makes a bigger impression on Colorado recruits. Not expecting this to change attitudes outside the state but it's a big stage on which to show that the flagship has somewhat righted itself.

    If we put up 42 points a game, we'll be stealing guys from Oregon and USC. Nothing breeds good recruiting like winning and scoring.

    We might start a list of which bet case scenarios were checked off today

    Agreed, but I guess I'm considering the in-state kid existing targets, even if the interest level isn't real high from a lot of them right now. Basically, I don't expect a lot of new profiles to be created in the next week.

    Was hoping certain offensive linemen or a certain RB down in El Paso County would take notice. Yes I agree this likely isn't getting any new names to jump into the recruiting game right away.

    If we can get the two OL to take notice, this could be a really nice OL class.

    The offense w/out P.Rich looks pretty average to me. We need some better run blockers. Hopefully we will improve as the season goes on.
