    GO BUFFS!

    Looks like this will be a tough season for the Buffs. 4-8 last year. Ugh. Dorrell never did anything for me and still doesn't (8-10). Yuk.

    In 2021, CU had an offense that was among the worst in the country and a defense that was OK.

    From that offense, the Buffs lost their most explosive playmaker (receiver Brenden Rice) and top running back (Jarek Broussard) to the transfer portal. Rice now plays at Southern California and Broussard at Michigan State. Another starting receiver, Dimitri Stanley, left CU for Iowa State.

    The defense was decent at times, but inconsistent, ultimately finishing seventh in the Pac-12 in points allowed (26.7 per game). The Buffs lost six of their best defenders, including three – linebackers Nate Landman and Carson Wells and defensive lineman Mustafa Johnson – to graduation. Three starters in the secondary – cornerbacks Mekhi Blackmon (USC) and Christian Gonzalez (Oregon) and safety Mark Perry (TCU) – all transferred.

    CU didn’t fill the holes with proven veterans from the transfer portal. Instead, the Buffs are relying on young players to step up, while counting on a handful of transfer additions to succeed in bigger roles than they had at their previous schools.

    Talk about deserting a sinking ship. Ouch!

    I sometimes wonder if moving to the Pac12 was the right decision. I still miss that post-Thanksgiving game with the Huskers every year. Oh well...

    Not to rub it in but I do look forward to the Buffs game with the Utes most years.

        I suppose Utah is a decent rivalry game, but I really, really, REALLY .miss playing Nebraska on Thanksgiving Fridays.

        Funny how 10 years after both teams ditch the Big XII, they schedule a non-conference home-and-home - and those two games both become legitimate classics - both Colorado wins. The OT win in Boulder in 2019 may have been the best game I've ever seen played at Folsom Field - seriously.
