How can a team win football games if they are not able to stop the other team’s offense? The simple answer is they can’t.

2013 Final Grades – Defense
Once again, if you weren’t with us for the “2013 Final Grade – Offense“we must, before assigning grades, set the parameters.
If we are to judge the 2013 Colorado football team based upon its final record, the Buffs don’t measure up. A 4-8 record, by any objective measurement, is a failure.

Regression to the Ugly
“Regression to the Mean” is a phrase used in statistics to explain results which differ from that which was expected. If results of an experiment produce extraordinary results, the theory goes, repeating the experiment again and again will bring the results back closer to what would be considered normal.

No. 2 Oregon at Colorado Preview – “T.I.P.S.”
Is there any real reason to play this game?
In the second half of the Oregon State game, Colorado showed signs of slipping back into 2012 form … and that’s not a good thing.

- CU punter Darragh O’Neill had six punts for 284 yards, a 47.3 yard average. O’Neill’s efforts places him atop the Pac-12, and 8th in the nation.
- As a team, the Buffs’...

Spring Grades – Defense
Someday, perhaps as early as the Class of 2014, there will be balance in the CU recruiting cycle … but that day is not yet here.
Colorado recruited nine defensive linemen and nine defensive backs in the Class of 2012. All 18 are not due until this summer.
Which means that spring practices, 2012, were played with only a handful of defensive players...
