First decent sized snow storm today in Denver...it's about time. That cold weather must be moving down to Texas because it continues to look like Nosa Eguae is chilling on the Buffs. The DE committed to the Buffs early in the year but has since been courting other offers.This is old but it just came across the ticker. Here is an interview he did with a Minnesota Gopher site, GolpherHole. This is all you need to know, though:
GH: You’ve already given a verbal to Colorado, what is the status with that?
NE: I committed to them in September, but right now it’s not very solid.
GH: How come?
NE: I really haven’t gotten in touch with the coaches since I committed. They were really on me hard, but now there’s really not much communication. I get a lot of letters, but it’s not very verbal.
Are you kidding me? Have the coaches seen our depth chart next year at defensive line and they haven't got in touch with him? I hope that statement is false from Nosa but this is troubling for sure. They only have eight to call!
Bob Lutz from the Wichita Eagle thinks the Buffs have an outside shot at the Big 12 North next year. I don't get his logic for Nebraska being good next year. He discredits Missouri for losing twelve starters while Nebraska loses thirteen starters including their starting quarterback and a lot of their offensive line.
• I've been trying to decide the order of power next season in the Big 12 North. Or is "power" too strong of a word?
Nebraska or Kansas looks to be the early favorite because Missouri loses 12 starters, including quarterback Chase Daniel.
Nebraska loses 13 starters, but has an easier Big 12 schedule than KU. The Huskers will play Texas Tech, Iowa State, Oklahoma and Kansas State at home with road games against Missouri, Baylor, Kansas and Colorado.
KU has a neutral-field game against Mizzou at Arrowhead Stadium, as well as home games against Iowa State, Oklahoma and Nebraska. The Jayhawks will play at Texas, Texas Tech, Colorado and Kansas State.
I'm giving an outside shot to CU, which hasn't shown much improvement under Dan Hawkins. But the Buffaloes lose only seven starters and don't play Oklahoma next season.
CU commit (hopefully assuming the CU coaches are actually following up with the kid) QB Clark Evans is also a big good player on the basketball court. He has his Los Alamitos team ranked #2 in the Orange County area.
