ESPN Blog - Comments are interesting Colorado started the decade as one of the North Division's dominant teams, earning bowl berths in five of the first six seasons of the decade. The Buffaloes have fallen on hard times recently, but they still have provided many outstanding players during the decade. Here are my choices for Colorado's all-decade team. OFFENSE QB: Joel Klatt RB: Chris Brown RB: Bobby Purify WR: Scotty McKnight WR: Derek McCoy TE: Daniel Graham OL: Brian Daniels OL: Andre Gurode OL: Victor Rogers OL: Justin Bates C: Wayne Lucier DEFENSE DL: Abraham Wright DL: Tyler Brayton DL: George Hypolite DL: Justin Bannan LB: Jordon Dizon LB: Sean Tufts LB: Jeff Smart DB: Michael Lewis DB: Terrence Wheatley DB: Jimmy Smith DB: Donald Strickland P: Mark Mariscal K: Mason Crosby KR: Jeremy Bloom Offensive player of the decade: Chris Brown. He was the key player on Colorado’s Big 12 championship team in 2001 and was even better the following season before injuries derailed his Heisman hopes. Defensive player of the decade: Jordon Dizon. Colorado’s only consensus All-American defensive player of the decade also was the Big 12’s defensive player of the year in 2007 after a four-year career as a starter for the Buffaloes. Coach of the decade: Gary Barnett. Even with his unseemly departure, Barnett still coached Colorado to its only Big 12 championship and took the Buffaloes to four Big 12 title games in a five-season period. They haven't been back since. Moment of the decade: Colorado stuns Texas for 2001 Big 12 title. The Buffaloes’ 39-37 victory was sparked by 182 yards rushing and three touchdowns by Brown, pushing them to their only Big 12 football championship and lone BCS bowl appearance of this decade. ********** Agree?
