Colorado football: Will Paul Richardson pan out in the NFL?

It always seems to be a toss up whether or not a college star can translate their game to the professional level. Think back to great college athletes who couldn’t make it in the NFL. It’s an underwhelming list that includes the likes of JaMarcus Russell, Vince Young, Brady Quinn, and who could forget Ryan Leaf. All the above are first round picks that never amounted to anything...

Colorado football: Previewing the WR position

Although the Buffaloes only lost four offensive starters from a year ago, there is no bigger departure than wide receiver Paul Richardson. Richardson, who was selected 45th overall in the NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks, was above and beyond the most talented player on the 2013 roster. His breakaway speed and immaculate hands will be nearly impossible to replace, but hope still...

Former CU Buffs star Paul Richardson stays fast, gets bigger for NFL

Paul Richardson does not weigh 175 pounds. "Today I weighed in at 175.9," Richardson proudly stated during his NFL scouting combine interview Friday.

Top 10 wide receivers for the New York Jets in the 2014 NFL Draft

The wide receiver position wasn’t a great one for the Jets in 2013. They had injury issues. They had productivity issues. But mainly, they had skill issues all around. No one was really a contributor. Stephen Hill wasn’t. Santonio Holmes wasn’t. Jeremy Kerley was too hurt to be one. The Jets have to go out and get some actual talent at one of the most important skill positions...

Top 10 wide receivers in the 2014 NFL Draft

If the NFL truly is a pass-happy league, then there are two parts to making that equation work. First, a team has to have a good quarterback; without someone to throw the ball to the right place at the right time, nothing else about the passing game will work. But second, a franchise must have people on the receiving end of those passes who can make plays; without teammates to catch...

Colorado fall to No. 23 USC, 47-29

Colorado senior safety Parker Orms expected numerous bowl appearances when he arrived on campus. Soon departing and having never gone to one, that's rather difficult for Orms to accept. It's the cold, hard truth after a frigid 47-29 loss to No. 23 USC on Saturday night ended any postseason plans the Buffaloes have been entertaining. Colorado (4-7, 1-7 Pac-12) will play...

The USC Trojans may get cold feet against Colorado. After all, it's going to be downright chilly. Still, interim coach Ed Orgeron is turning a cold shoulder to chatter about the freezing conditions that await No. 23 USC. He doesn't give the frigid weather a second thought and insisted neither should his players. Forecasts call for temperatures to be in the mid-20s at kickoff...

Earlier this week, MacIntyre grew a little gruff when he was asked about his team's progress this season. More specifically...
