St Patty's Day Buff Bites

Happy St. Patty's day Buff fans.

Colorado_mediumIn perfect timing with our "spring preview" story yesterday about the kickers, the Boulder Daily Camera has a nice writeup on K Aric Goodman and his attempts to be more successful next year. Goodman has changed his mechanics, chopping down the number of steps he takes from three to two when approaching the ball. He is thinking this will alleviate some false movements or putting him out of position. I am glad to see something is changing and that he is being proactive. The true test will be on game day as practice was never the problem.

Colorado_mediumKyle Ringo pretty much says that Colorado will play Toledo on Sept 11th. The contracts haven't been signed but they should be the replacement for Miami (OH) on ESPN. Secretly, I was hoping for a road trip to Oxford, MS but this will do fine considering the Buffs take care of business in Toledo. A 3 - 0 start is a must going into West Virginia.

Colorado_mediumTom Kensler of the Denver Post talks about the incoming basketball players that will join the Buffs next season. CU will get a 6'11" Australian named Shane Harris-Tunks, hopefully the inside presence that the Buffs don't currently have. Seeing pictures of Harris-Tunks, he needs to add some weight but the Post has him at 250 pounds. We will see once he gets on campus. The player I am most excited for is G Alec Burks from Missouri. He also needs to put some beef on his bones, but the 6'5" combo guard has been a 30 point 10 rebound guy in the state playoffs. 6'6" Forward Keenan Hornbuckle from Los Angeles should also see early minutes in his first year. Hornbuckle also had offers from Oregon State, Arizona and St. Mary's. Hopefully with the development of Toby Veal and Ryan Kelley next year, along with the three players listed and of course, Thorne and Higgins, Colorado may be able to get a nice core group of guys going.

Colorado_mediumCNNSI.com does a preview for Big 12 spring ball. Nothing about the Buffs, mostly around Oklahoma, Texas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
