    BOULDER — As I toured what will be the University of Colorado football team's new headquarters, with its state-of-the-art locker room and touch-screen televisions and underwater treadmills, it made me wonder: How did CU ever get recruits before all this?

    The Buffs haven't had a facility overhaul since 1991, which was, of course, the year after they won the national championship.


    Now in 2015, they're not just keeping up with the Joneses — they're keeping up with the Jetsons.

    Great article. Let's give Hochman some page views for this. Positive comments would be nice, too.

    Definitely a change of tone. It's nice seeing excitement from a local writer.

    Why would it be a "gamble" to visit CU?

    Doesn't a recruit only get 5 OVs?

    Like a 5* recruit gives a flying **** if the practice facility is self sustaining. :rolling_eyes:

    Hochman did a good job. He's actually very good at what he does.

    I like Hochman a lot. He's on 105.5 during the "drive home." Really funny guy. I think he does stand up as well.

    I honestly :lol: at some of you guys finding things to bitch about.

    I just found the last line to be the obligatory dp slap in the face after a nice article. It wasn't needed.

    You really don't see how that could at least leave a positive impression? :rolling_eyes:

    It could leave a positive impression. More likely than not, it's information that goes in one ear and out the other. The recruit wants to know about things that impact him directly. The fact that it's a self-sustaining facility is of no relevance to him. It's OK to mention it to the recruit, but I would be careful about using it as a selling point. It's not.

    That wasn't meant for recruiting. It was for cost savings to the university and PR for the local community that eats that **** up.

    Thank you. Why would anyone think that was going to be a selling point to a recruit?

    I agree completely, esp. the PR angle, but one eye roll deserved another.
