    SIAP but cool to see KD marketing himself IMO, though I'm sure others may feel differently.

    Perhaps getting KD Nixon was key to getting Shenault Jr as well...I don't follow recruiting like some others do.

    No. I took it that they are both head coaches.

    he explicitly posted "fellow Colorado head coach" (emphasis added). I'm not clear how that is suppossed to mean anything other than both being head coaches at Colorado. it could mean they are both head coaches of different sports, but that statement makes no sense if they're head coaches at different universities, or if they're not both head coaches.

    I read it as he was stating it was a fellow head coach from Colorado. Look at his other tweets. They are the same.

    Or he’s excited that it was a fellow Clevelander.

    ok, I definitely didn't get that in context of an HCMT reference (not familiar with his other tweets). what is he head coach of (his wiki page and his linkedin page don't give any info on that)?

    May have been one previously. They always go by Head Coach after.

    really? like Mike MacIntyre still calls himself 'head coach'? not calling you a liar, but that doesn't sound right to me.

    beyond that, 'fellow <whatever>' typically implies current state.

    I’ve seen it. I’m sure Mike Shannahan still does. Maybe if his last job was HC. But it really doesn’t mean **** and you are reading too much into it.

    it means that Steele guy is trying to make himself seem more credible than he really is and that behavior deserves to be called out. but yeah, I've given this more thought than it deserves. (y)

    Or more likely he just typed slower then his brain was traveling and you spent the last hour obsessing over the weirdest topic, which is saying something on this site.

    I think he goofed on the fellow Colorado part, and meant it only for the fellow Clevelander part. Put it twice but meant it only for the fact they both are from Cleveland. He didn’t use fellow for any other coach’s tweet thanking them and we know he wasn’t a coach here at Colorado.

    Just an error is all.

    Going through security at Sky Harbor I went through the scanner. The lady asked me to step ahead and see the agent. I was wearing my CU shirt. The guy looked at me and said, “Go ahead. I ain’t touchin’ No CU shirt!” Haha.

    He saw “CU” and figured I was no threat.

    Probably figured you couldn’t score in his red zone.

    Nebraska just sucks because there is nothing to do in that state.

    To be fair, this could have been a physics lab on the conservation of momentum.

    Dude in the white got a strong push off the wall to blow red up. I view this as foreshadowing.

    Caffeine didn't kick in when I posted and that was meant for the Husker hate thread. Many apologies!

    That's okay, laughing at fuskers is appropriate in any setting.

    Who does anyone think will be the #1 RB when Ralphie leads the team onto the field at Mile High Stadium?

    Barring injury, I think it's likely that Fontenot gets the first carry of the season for CU, followed by Smith and then Mangham. None of them seemed to really separate from one another, but maybe that will change come Fall camp now that they've all been in the offense for a Spring/Summer.
