    College football officially kicks off next month. Only 31 days until CU starts Fall Camp (8/1) and only 60 days until Game Day (8/30).
    We'll start with our guy Six-Zero

    Not a full intro, but the song they use coming back from commercial breaks makes me happy

    At first I thought this was another premature thread. Then I thought about it a bit and for several reasons I'm more excited about CU football this season then I have been in many years. The season countdown is not premature. GO BUFFS!

    I was 2 years old at the time so he didn’t stick out in my mind and it was the only 52 I could find

    When in doubt, check with @FlaBuff for any numbers in the 50s or 60s!

    Great player who deserves recognition.

    Even more notable because he was a pathfinder. He had type 1 diabetes and was one of the first to play both college and pro football with it at such a high level.

    I see Jay regularly, as my daughter is friends with his step-daughters - he's a great guy. Fate seems to have oddly connected me with the great centers of my earlier years, as one of my sons swims with Tom Nalen's daughter, and I see him regularly too.

    Might be one of the least notable numbers in the years I have been following the team. Tom Ashworth maybe?

    There is one notable guy at CU who wore #51. He was a multi-year starter who then went on to a long career in the NFL as a key protector for Broncos QBs, he even won a Super Bowl ring.

    Answer - It was a trick question. Matt Lepsis was assigned #51 when he was a freshman at CU, he changed to #88 when he switched to TE.
