I think they have given him every opportunity and he refuses to reach out and take it.
Shame because he has talent but we can't afford to keep guys around who won't step up.
Can they pull his scholly? It's cases like this where I feel it's justified.
They can't pull it for this year but they can non-renew it for next season when he would be a fifth year senior. Should do the same with Yuri as well.
I kind of feel like the scholarships for Yuri, Rippy and Wilson should all be cancelled going into next year. Gotta send a message. Three guys who were supposed to have all the talent in the world and didn't do jack squat.
You get them graduated with a degree and they move on. Everyone wins.
I'm good with that outcome.
Rippy and Wright will contribute on special teams, but yes they have been big disappointments.
These types are the worst teammates. Don't expect them to get your back when they are busy worrying about theirs. Yeah get your degree, I'm cool with that. Thing is, you didn't come to CU to get on the ****ing Dean's list. U can do both, it's hard but it's supposed to be, that's the beauty of it. If you don't have it in you, don't play.
Meanwhile, guys like Kafovalu and Jackson, both of whom everybody on this board wrote off as "... probably wouldn't even show up on campus..." are listed on the two deep! A tribute to HCMM persuading guys with some talent to hang around and work their butts off!
Love all the "first rate" college coaches who hang around here!
I love how all your posts are just calling out other posters. Amazing how you never actually have the guts to make any real predictions.
I am certain that every single person that has ever posted on this board could have coached CU to it's first winless season in 100 years in conference play last season.
on the bright side:
The Buffs will play this season without standout defensive lineman Josh Tupou, who will not be a part of the team this year. MacIntyre said Friday, however, that Tupou could be back in 2016. "That's the plan, if it all works out," he said. "We hope he comes back next fall."
I think their contribution on special teams is in question. One would hope that we are getting to the point that if you are the last guy listed at CB and true freshmen have passed you up, then you aren't going to contribute period.
Aside from not being listed high (or at all) on the depth chart, does anyone actually know for a fact that Rippy or Wright are
He would most likely be the anchor of a much improved, veteran defensive unit in 2016, and could have a real shot at being a 2nd or maybe 1st day draft pick if he chooses to come back.
As for the first question above, what were you asking? Yes, they are on the roster and I know they were participating.
Ha, that was something I wrote but decided not to post (Mods, is there a way to bring back the "Cancel Post" button, so what you've written doesn't just sit there?).
I was going to ask, if anyone had actually heard from credible sources that Rippy and Wright are legitimately lazy and DGAF? I'm not questioning that, but maybe they just aren't good at playing football?
I have heard it is both.
"Likes" to total messages :
Duff = .02
Buffenuf = .05
Quality; not quantity!
Assanine comment. Buffs were competitive. Now could we all coach them to 40+ point losses like Embree, yes. Team was improved. Can it little Jim.
As I said in another thread, many fans have different agendas. Not everybody puts winning as the top priority, or as a priority whatsoever at all.
WTF is up BigTrollerJim?
Neither give a damn about football and are lazy.
Yes - this is a confirmed fact. And because of that, they were over-rated as well as football players.
Which shows a limitation to the star system. On paper, no one would choose a 2* Addison over a 4* Rippy...
Well aren't you a ****y lil bastard?
Your "likes" were other posters clicking the link hoping to find a hidden neg rep button.
If I didn't want to see the Buffs win I wouldn't be here. I wouldn't root for them. I wouldn't have wanted Hawkins and Embree fires. You took a small sampling of what I had to say. Quote the whole thing. Buffs are a better team than 2010-2014 and it will show this year. It's 2015. Enjoy a new dawn. Quit trying to bring us into the Big Jim world. Go back to liking all the negative posts since that was the only entertainment you brought to this board. If the Buffa start out less than 3-1 I will be pretty vocal and honestly 4-0 is what I expect. Time to quit saying close is enough.
Buffs win 41-28.
