According to Pauline, Richburg is being compared to Jets Pro-Bowl center Nick Mangold...
With leading rusher Kapri Bibbs leaving Colorado State for the NFL, it was thought that Donnell Alexander would be first in line to replace the talented running back. Unfortunately for head coach Jim McElwain and his offensive coaching staff, they’ll be forced to look at other options to fill the sizable hole left by Bibbs’ early departure.
Following practice Saturday, McElwain...
With Garrett Grayson playing well down the stretch last season and seemingly entrenched as Colorado State's starting quarterback, Rams coach Jim McElwain isn't going to be fielding questions after each spring practice about the state of the quarterback race.

Larry Eustachy was hired as the head coach at Colorado State ahead of the 2012-2013 season and promptly led the Rams to a 26-9 record and an NCAA Tournament bid in his first year at the helm. So naturally, fans expect the program to continue performing at a high level in 2013-2014, regardless of the fact that the team lost a handful of senior leaders. Eustachy seems to think that...

Now THIS is what the NCAA Tournament is all about. One Colorado State fan was so pumped for his team’s second round game against Missouri yesterday that he actually wore a full ram suit to the arena.
Since the Rams won, we assume he’ll be back on Saturday for another go-around. Hopefully in between, he’ll get that thing washed.
