    At least 10 guys not listed will be on the 2 deep (or expected to compete anyway) come August:
    Injured:
    Laviska Shenault
    Aaron Maddox
    Chris Miller, CB
    Jake Moretti
    Jared Poplawski

    Plus an OT and NT transfer (hopefully), and 4 other Jucos on defense..... and a True Frosh in Perry at safety.

    Man, I hope you’re right about Moretti. I have doubts he makes it.

    Moretti expectations should cease immediately.

    You gave up on him, that's your problem and unless your his doctor you know nothing more than anyone else on the outside does. So give it a rest already, everything that has come from this staff is the expectation he will play again. I would be shocked as anyone else if he's ready to play early due to his weight loss. Until Jake says otherwise, I'm going to expect him to be a starter for us down the road. I like pulling for every kid who comes to be a Buff weather he's a stud or a walk on doesn't matter, because they lay it on the line for this school and it's fans.

    This was posted very quickly after the game. Not sure how much of game went into assessment, if at all.

    I do like the idea of 12 on D though.

    Callier is down to 225. Obviously, coming off an injury, but I am not sure we ever see him more than a situational player.

    I think you’re misinterpreting the comment about Moretti. Certainly nobody wishes him anything but the best in his recovery. By all accounts, he is a good guy, good teammate, and super talented.

    However, he is injured and hasn’t been able to consistently play in years. Hawg1’s comment, and I agree with him, aren’t directed at Moretti. They are directed at certain message board fans that relentlessly insert Moretti as a starter, or worse, as some savior for the CU line. Again, he has all the talent in the world, but he hasn’t been healthy in years. People should drop the expectations, and just hope he recovers and be happy with whatever he can contribute, whether that be limited minutes or a starter. Expecting more at this stage is foolish (see Clint Werth, CU OT).

    Wondering if Luckett or Oliver are ready to play DB as true freshmen.

    They have to get a look. Is there anybody at WR or RB that should be considered?

    I am on the same boat with you guys about Jake, I just know myself our bodies can come back from really horrific injuries or bizarre surgical outcomes. I probably give guys more time for recovery than most people is all.

    I've just been on the hope train, as far as Moretti goes. Still am, to be honest.

    Am I the only one that thinks Oliver is a better WR prospect? Really like that 6'4" at WR.

    Holic, you seem to be on the Moretti train. I don't see him contributing at all this year. Lost a bunch of weight. Give him a year off to get healthy.

    The good thing is he's young. He has time to get it healthy, if he can get it healthy? Certain injuries are a mother****er. I hope he can do that. It really sucks when you know you can't anymore.

    I have no recent updates. His weight doesn't concern me as he was the strongest guy on the team. Maybe I missed that he had a setback. I know he had a surgery this winter that sounded like a step forward.

    Does Laviska return to his "Z" flanker position or will they move him to the "X" split-end spot?
    Hambright will most likely (and hopefully) take over one of the two OT spots.
    Johnson and Jordan will bring much needed depth at nose tackle and if they beat out a healthy and motivated Sami then we are in good shape!
    Mustafa will be #1 at DT and at least one of the incoming frosh DT will factor in the depth chart there; I like Sparaco at DE rather than at DT.
    It will be really interesting to see how the JuCo linebackers figure in; with 3 juniors coming into the mix; 1 at OLB; and 2 at ILB.
    I was very surprised to see Ray Robinson in the ILB depth chart. He was recruited as a safety/"Buff" backer; they must not like his coverage abilities to stay at safety or factor in at the "Star" backer spot.

    Ray was always destined for a LB spot, imo. Just needs to keep adding weight but he is a plus athlete there, instead of an average athlete at safety.

    Just run him on and off the field in every down against Nebraska. Hell, run him through their huddle on timeouts. Let him lead Ralphie. Whatever he can do to get in their heads. Maybe rip the leg off of that stupid blow up doll they have in overalls and floss his butt with it in front of their bench.

    Pass rushing is a pretty important role, so I’m totally ok with this.

    Nerve regeneration can and does happen. I doubt he has enough scholarship for the amount of time it will most likely take.

    I think he broke a bone in his foot or something. I don’t want to guess or speculate on injuries. My hope is that it is just a training injury unrelated to his other injuries. Fingers crossed.

    Whatever it was, it was significant enough for Adam to remove him from his top player countdown. Thinking the best case scenario at this time is that 2020 is the earliest we might see him be a factor.

    I think it's best to assume he's never going to play a meaningful snap at CU. If he does great, but I think it's a long shot. Wish the kid all the best and a full recovery.
