    new facilities blowing people away and some coaches who not only recruit very well but also keep us fans engaged. Legit reasons for positivity heading into the 2016 season.

    And of course there are all these signing day battles going on.

    We'll get some great news. We'll have some disappointment.

    It's back to being interesting this year.

    I'd been feeling some burnout, and this has been a cure.

    Go Buffs,

    The intensity and excitement have definitely ramped up pretty unexpectedly this year. Its been a great change of pace.

    Really looking forward to this time next year, with a bowl game under our belt and a full year of Chiv doling out the coffee.

    My avatar has never seemed so appropriate.

    I won't be excited if we lose this RB to Nebraska. I'll never understand why a kid would make that choice.

    You're right, recruiting is fun again.

    What I can't wait for is when watching games is fun again.

    Man... 2008. What an off-season that was!!! I cancelled two meetings just to watch Scott's decision.

    We also landed our most productive under the radar recruit with Speedy that year. He was awesome.

    I want to believe I'm over accepting those invitations. Been a long decade, my friend.

    I know it's a long way to go, but I'm really excited about the possibility of Webb getting drafted, especially getting drafted high. I mean, I've heard a lot of talk about how he could potentially be a first rounder (though that seems VERY optimistic) if he were to have that kind of Sr. season that would bring a ton of attention to the program right?

    Recruiting is a highly in exact science. As such, I typically don't spend a lot of time worrying about the decisions of a bunch of 18-year olds. it does appear that we are in line to finish with 2-3 very solid recruits that will make this class very respectable. That's a good thing. Get in some kids who can help win games.

    I'm also excited to see what guys like Falo, Hasselbeck and Lynot can contribute as well. Some fun stuff for sure.

    At the beginning of January I thought it was going to be a very boring month leading up to NSD. CU's class ranking may still underwhelm but my blood pressure's gotten a good ride out of the last week.

    So, when do we expect to begin seeing the FAX start receiving?

    Think we may have some FAX bimbos like they have at bama?

    I agree. New coaches who have great enthusiasm, winning recruiting battles with top flight P5 schools, new facilities. The addition of Webb has me actually hopeful this year will be different...before that I didn't see any substantive change that would justify hope in a good 2016 campaign. Go Buffs! 2016 PAC12 Champs :LOL:

    CSU has 9 three-stars committed. So I take recruiting as a crap shoot. Again, I hope to get the tall Poly DL who de-commited from USC.

    Signing day suspense is a welcome change.

    That sense of excitement you're feeling, Nik, can be attributed to one word ...

    Agreed. This is the first signing day in many years that I am planning my day so that I am not away from my phone/computer for long. Really excited to see how the class finishes and have hope that we point to members of this class as the ones that really helped propel us out of the hole.

    land the guys we need to land this year. get to a bowl. get back into the top 25 on recruiting. move back into our rightful spot in the football universe.
