    Full pads were strapped on for Monday's spring football practice, and an intensity level that already had been high for the Colorado Buffaloes took another leap.

    [FONT=Cambria, serif]Also responding has been Jones, the 5-foot-7, 180-pounder from Paterson, N.J. "He's stepping up his game," Embree said.

    [/FONT][FONT=Cambria, serif]THE BIG DIFFERENCE MAKER: Deehan was effusive about the change in off-season strategies under new speed, strength and conditioning director Malcolm Blacken.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif]Said Deehan: "I've got to say the biggest difference is Malcolm in the weight room. Think about it: he's the guy you spend every day other than spring ball and fall camp with. We're with him every day in the summer, the off-season. He sets that mind-set. He's got our bodies right . . . we're a lot stronger where we need to be. We're no longer just big, fat power-lifters."[/FONT]

    So far I love everything I have heard coming out of spring practice. And I won't say it out loud but there is something strangely missing already under this new strength and conditioning program.

    I'm so happy we've gotten stronger and faster in the off-season. That's refreshing!

    He had a great run on Sunday. Play went left, he followed his blocks, hit the hole... and then cut it back across the field underneath the pursuit for a long touchdown run. Looked good, man.

    Regarding Blacken, I know that the emphasis on competition and accountability is a good thing. I think that focusing the strength training on more core strength will translate better to the game of football. Time will tell.
