So is it the coaches fault that these 'excuses' continue to be raised or is it the players? CU is supposed to be one of the tougher schools to get in academically, yet, it seems sooo many players take such a long time to 'get up to speed' (ie. Scott, Simmons, Perkins, Polk) and it seems that the players, especially o-line and defence, keep missing assignments. Is this the players fault or is it the coaches. Other schools, even supposed weaker ones like CSU, and Toledo seem to be able to coach their players up within the same time frame that CU has. What are our coaches doing? You cant tell me Simmons is sooo dense that he cant run 3/4 of the plays properly by now. Or that Scott cant pick up blitzes almost as well as Sumler by now. I am not sure what the coaches are doing or what they are looking for...but it makes no sense that it takes our players soo long to learn the playbook adequately.
