    Damn. Huntley, Ento and Bobo, please stand up. I think we know why Bobo was brought back to WR only so quickly.

    So he'll take a medical redshirt and still have two to play, right? Going to come back next year PRich style and tear it up.

    It sure would be nice if there was enough talent so that one or two injuries don't have a big impact on the season.

    It's Juwann Winfree, a JUCO tranfser, likely out for the year after tearing his ACL.

    ...It took too many clicks to find out who was lost for the season.

    He was the guy I was most excited to see this year. I know we have depth, but none of those guys have his combination of size and speed. I saw that depth at the scrimmage and it looked like our WR corps of years past. ****. ****. ****.

    I don't care what it means for this season, things weren't just going to go smoothly, you have to shape your destiny by force not fate. But Winfree is one of the hardest workers from an outside perspective that I've seen here, he obviously tried damn hard for this 2nd chance and it kills me to see this happen to him. Wishing for a speedy recovery and that he gets his fair shot one day.

    I feel horrible for Juwann. Dude worked his ass off getting ready for this season. Looking forward to seeing him kill it in 2017.

    Figures but this happens man, other guys have to produce. Tough loss though, glad he has eligibility left.

    Gives the freshmen a chance. Hopefully there are enough bodies in line to step up.

    I feel bad for Juwann. I hope he recovers fully and becomes the player we all hope he can be. Godspeed, Juwann.

    Can we stop with the whoa is us **** though? This happens to every team, every year. The good teams can overcome it with depth and character. I hope we are closer to being able to do this as well.

    Already the self-pity and excuses have arrived, and CU has yet to lose a game. We lost a guy with great potential for this season. We have had plenty of guys with potential, never get hurt, and still never make an impact. I can't see this as a key loss since he's never caught a D1 pass.

    I'm going to root for my Buffs and expect them to overcome some adversity. This is not an excuse or free pass for the season.

    Sorry for the soapbox. I just really get annoyed when I read this whoa is us we can't catch a break bull**** every season.

    Can't wait to see Juwann in '17.

    Woe is us

    Whoa is us means we should stop. Sorry for the soap box, I just get really annoyed at misunderstood figures of speech.
