    … CU in a few minutes …

    Neill Woelk identifies 11 “under-the-radar” who could help the Buffs this fall

    From CUBuffs.com … With a lineup dominated by upperclassmen and a school-record number of starts (412) represented on the roster, picking the players who will likely be impact performers this year for the Colorado Buffaloes isn’t difficult.

    Chidobe Awuzie, Tedric Thompson, Josh Tupou, Kenneth Olugbode, Sefo Liufau, Jeromy Irwin,Shay Fields, Phillip Lindsay — and that’s just a short list. All have plenty of starting experience, all are proven playmakers and all have had solid if not outstanding fall camps.

    But along with the obvious, there are other Buffs who might be flying just a bit below the radar in terms of recognition — but could be poised for big seasons.

    In no particular order, here are 11 of those players to watch as we inch ever closer to next Friday’s season opener vs. Colorado State:

    Colorado has a small lead in ticket sales for Rocky Mountain Showdown

    From BSN Denver … If early attendance numbers are any indication, the 2016 Rocky Mountain Showdown between the Colorado Buffaloes and Colorado State Rams could exceed the atmosphere of last year’s overtime thriller in Denver.

    All in all, 66,253 fans made their way to Mile High for a chance to pick their side in 2015. With a week remaining before the game, CSU has sold 25,008 tickets overall, with 6,468 of those being sold to students according to the Reporter-Herald. Down in Boulder, the school is reporting a total of 27,805 tickets sold, with 5,432 of those going to students.

    By game time last season, Colorado had sold 31,796 tickets—7,145 student tickets—despite roughly 30-percent of CU season ticket holders opting out of the game.

    Yes, it appears that Buffs Nation is indeed ready to be a part of this rise everyone keeps talking about.

    The top-selling vanity plate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area? University of Colorado!

    From the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram … The Colorado Buffaloes left the Big 12 athletic conference five years ago. And yet, the university located 800 miles from Dallas-Fort Worth was the region’s top-selling specialty license plate this year, topping the Dallas Cowboys, the University of Texas and Texas A&M.

    The black and gold University of Colorado plate was the top seller for the first six months of the year in the four largest Metroplex counties. Statewide, the Cowboys were the clear winner, outselling their intrastate rival in the National Football League, the Houston Texans, as well as the state’s most popular pro basketball club, the San Antonio Spurs.

    “The reason the University of Colorado is so high is that they only recently launched their plate in the Texas market, and prior to this launch they were at a preorder phase for six months going back into 2015,” said Steve Farrar, president of My Plates, the private-sector company that manages Texas’ vanity plate program.

    Even so, the Buffaloes must have a heck of a loyal fan base in Tarrant, Denton, Dallas and Collin counties.

    CU uniform combinations for the season revealed … sort of

    A tweet from CU … This graphic accurately represents how many times we will wear these colors this @RunRalphieRun season. #GoBuffs


    If you don’t want to count it up for yourself, CU will wear black shirts seven times, white shirts four times and gray once. With seven home games (counting the game against CSU), it’s likely that CU will wear a black shirt for each of those games and either white or gray on the road.

    The Buffs will be in gold helmets six times, gray three times, white twice and black once. Their most common pants color will be gold (five), followed by gray (three) and black and white (two each).
