    Boulder - For defensive end Marquez Herrod, there are few more simple pleasures in the life of a college football player than knocking a quarterback senseless.

    These days, the Colorado redshirt freshman gets the same thrill from the training table every day. All the food he wants. All free. Then he goes home. He goes to the same off-campus house every day. He knows where he'll sleep. Every evening.

    It's quite a story. I think most college teams have some individuals for whom winning a scholarship can be the difference between escaping poverty or being stuck in it. It's great to see someone with this kind of character earn an opportunity when the odds were stacked against him. Best of luck to him...beginning Sunday!
