    Let's put it all here to keep it organized. Winter weight program starts January 14th and we'll know more as we get closer to that date.

    The first one hurts quite a bit, but explains a lot of our initial recruiting.

    For those of you who have an Athletic sub here's a good article on the transfer portal.

    Now that CU is officially transitioning to big boy football it's time to buckle up cause it's going to be a bumpy ride.

    Better temper the optimism. It may just be a different means of bending over and taking the beatings.

    If we need advice about that we can ask our neighbors to the northeast in red. Fuskers have gotten pretty good at taking a variety of beatings over the past few years.

    This sucks!
    Good player
    Did they tell him he would play DT, instead of End?
    Could easily see Oklahoma State tampering, but oh well

    You speaking from experience? The word is that you are a pro at bending over and taking ****.

    It’s funny, I remember the same sentiment last year and after the game all your fans wanted to talk about was #twistgate

    Clearly you haven't seen what Vegas thinks. We're playing the likely 2019-2020 season National Champs here in Boulder, CU stands nary a chance. Probably the next Heisman winner in Adrian "twisted knee" Martinez as well. And with Scott "Better than Dabo" Frost at the helm, they will be contending for championships year in and year out.

    Wait... the Nubs didn't win the Natty this year? I can't wait to watch "I'm going to fake slide" Martinez get his bell rung this year. A.sshole.

    CU wouldn't have any luck if we didn't have bad luck. I just take it as a given that the attrition and injuries will always happen at the positions where we can least afford it.

    Are Fillip and Haigler leaving legit? That would be less than ideal.

    This is legit. I posted in Barzil earlier today.

    We need to change the culture of our OL. Based on the performance the last 2 seasons, everyone we had is just a name on a list -- not real depth. I'm fine with attrition. Don't care if we end up starting 5 guys who are all under 6'5" if they are big, strong and tough. Ideally, we want to have some guys with natural builds for OT starting at those 2 spots but I can live without that as we recruit toward the future as long as we fix the "soft" issue we've had.

    P.S. I'm not saying that anyone who we have lost or will lose is soft. I'm saying that there's a toughness developed within any group when things are made really difficult and stressful, then a certain number of guys pull together and get through the other side together.
