    We are not talking about the level he's playing at - rest of the secondary gets a lot of credit as the should Tedric and Chido are beasts but Witherspoon against top level completion has really played well.

    Announcer said at one point that CU has 3 NFL-caliber corners with Chido, Spoon and Oliver.

    No argument from me on that point. These dudes are good.

    And I think Spoon is the best in man coverage.

    Honestly think Spoon had a better day than Chido or Thompson.

    It looked like Oregon didn't have much interest in even testing Chido, probably a wise decision. They tried going after Spoon instead and he stepped up to the challenge.

    They did complete a couple balls on Chido, one a great catch to put the ball inside the 5 but you aren't going to win games going that way. Now Spoon and Oliver are making all options bad options.

    I just think it's time we can truly say "trust the coaches" when it comes to DB recruiting. They know what they're doing there.

    Spoon showed up against Michigan too. The dude is perhaps the best corner man on man. Chido is a ball hawk in man and run coverage and is very aggressive.

    It's nice when the secondary has different personalities and they all mesh well.
