Colorado football: Quarterback outlook

  The Colorado football team has not had a consistent option at quarterback since Tyler Hansen in the 2011 season, and that’s not saying much. The inconsistency at the quarterback position has been one of the main problems with the Buffs for the past 10 years or so. Joel Klatt was the last legitimate quarterback that had an opportunity to move on to the NFL, but he decided to...

Quarterback Attrition at CU

    Quarterback Attrition at Colorado Remember way back when, when the Colorado coaching staff had to divide spring practices into two levels of tryouts for the starting quarterback position? Back when the first half of spring practices was an open tryout, with no fewer than six quarterbacks vying for the attention of the coaches? That was so 2013. As it stands now, Colorado will...

UCLA offense hoping to rebound vs. Colorado

The last two weeks have been difficult in Westwood. The once-prolific offense has suddenly lost its footing and the stout defense has been taxed to the point that injuries are mounting. Offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone has come under scrutiny for his play-calling and he may be feeling the heat from Bruin Nation. "I want to give a shoutout to my mom and my dog," Mazzone...

ASU rewind: Dominant win celebrated only briefly

Todd Graham pretty much summed up Arizona State's 54-13 win over Colorado on Saturday with this line: "We dominated them probably as bad as they've been dominated this year." The Sun Devils (4-2, 2-1 Pac-12) dominated the Buffaloes (2-3, 0-3) in all three phases just as they were expected to while holding them to a season-low 13 points and just 85 offensive yards...

Scouting the Buffaloes

Mike McIntyre runs a multiple set offense, in no-huddle spread most of the time, sometimes I formation, sometimes the Deep Ace with a single back. They ran only 69 plays against the Beavers, but hampered themselves with four turnovers. They averaged 82 plays in their two opening wins. Junior quarter Connor Wood is not a threat to run. He has good size at 6-4, 225 and throws a good...

Oregon State Beavers Moving In The Right Direction

This past Saturday, while making my usual game day journey from southern Oregon to Corvallis, I found myself wondering about the current state of the Oregon State Beavers. They had posted three wins to only one loss going into their second conference game of the season, a record that sounded more impressive than it felt, considering they had been only a few plays away from anything...

Pac-12 Hangover - Week 5

My number of the week?  28.6. That was the average difference between this week’s Pac-12 winners, and the losers left with the short end of the conference’s stick … ironically the same end that a certain USC head coach found himself with while standing helplessly outside a bus filled with his soon-to-be ex-players. That’s right, while “beat-downs” would’ve certainly...

Three Years, not Three Games
