    Quick facts: Colorado begins the 2008 season hoping to take another step forward under the former Boise State coach Dan Hawkins, whose second year at the helm had the Buffaloes orchestrate a four-win improvement over their disappointing 2-10 2006 season. In doing so, the team made great strides on offense, gaining more than 1,000 yards more than in 2006. This made the 2007 Buffaloes only the third team in school history to make such a drastic improvement, joining the 1957 and 1999 squads. So are the Buffaloes ready to make another step forward – say, to the Big 12 championship?.....

    From what I read, the assesment of the Buffs appeared to be fair and unbiased. Nice link!

    Some one should let them know about Allbuffs as opposed to net-turds.

    From the article.....

    'Tidbit: Ralphie, the University of Colorado’s live mascot, is actually not a buffalo, but an American Bison. The university unveiled its newest mascot, Ralphie V, at the team’s spring game in April; it wasn’t an auspicious debut. In other Ralphie-related news, Ralphie IV believes he made a mistake in “retiring early,” and while he would like to return to live mascot work, believes Colorado has not made him feel welcome and would like to be released into the wild.'

    :lol:

    I think it was a good article and gave you a real good insight into what to expect from CU this next season. I was disappointed as well that they didn't mention allbuffs.com. Matt you need to make a call.......:cool:
