OSU UPDATE: The Beavers bring a 2-3 mark into Friday's game with wins over South Dakota (62-47) and on the road against George Washington, 64-57. OSU returns nine letterwinners and four starters from its CBI title team that went 18-18 in Craig Robinson's first year at the helm. OSU went 12-7 at home last year.

Colorado_mediumBuffs face familiar style: Colorado, Oregon State both feature Princeton offense - Buffzone

So far, the Beavers are not living up to the hype with head-scratching losses to Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Sacramento State on the non-conference resume. Oregon State is also 0-1 against the Big 12 this season with a loss at Texas Tech.

Colorado_mediumCU`s Geer named first-team All-Big 12 - Buffzone
The AP released their Big 12 All-Conference teams. Here is how the Buffs fared:
1st team - TE Riar Geer
2nd team - WR Scotty McKnight, CB Jimmy Smith
Honorable Mention - OT Nate Solder, LB Jeff Smart, DB Cha'pelle Brown, DB Jalil Brown

Obviously, they got the Scotty McKnight choice right compared to the Big 12 coaches who put McKnight on the Honorable Mention team. Nate Solder was a first teamer on the coach's ballot while he was honorable mention in the media's.

It’ll be interesting to see what the Colorado Buffaloes try on offense in 2010. For the first time in Dan Hawkins’ tenure, there’s reason for encouragement. Make that the second time. Entering 2008, the Buffs had a returning starting quarterback and wide receivers, plus some touted talent arriving from a top-15 recruiting class. Then they changed the offense’s pace without realizing that pace did not suit the talent. It didn’t work. In 2009, the plan was first and foremost to run the ball. CU finished last in yards in the Big 12 for the third time in four seasons. It finished with an average rush of 2.8 yards a try. No other Big 12 team had an average below 3.4. Back to the drawing board? Not quite. We might have received a preview of 2010 on Nov. 19 at Oklahoma State, where CU opened the game by calling passes on its first 13 plays. In the season finale against Nebraska, the Buffs threw 44 passes. They had 28 runs.
