Sunday Buff Bites - The Media Gets Together to All Write the Same Article

This Sunday is now pronounced "Dan Hawkins Must Make a Statement Day" as pretty much every Denver area paper had a exceedingly long story about how Hawkins is known more for his comments and statements and less about winning. Boy, am I glad we only have seven days left until things kick off in Boulder and we can talk about what actually happens on the field and not about what is said off of it.

John Henderson from the Denver Post, usually a pretty anti-University of Colorado writer, takes his shot at "Dan Hawkins Must Make a Statement Day."

Kyle Ringo of the Boulder Daily Camera doesn't want to be left out of the Sunday festivities and writes another long "Dan Hawkins Must Make a Statement" story.

Colorado_mediumKiszla: Honeymoon over for Hawk, brother - The Denver Post
Hey, Mark Kiszla decided to join the college ranks, away from his Denver Broncos articles, a shock when Jay Cutler rolls into town...I guess when it is "Dan Hawkins Must Make a Statement Day", you have to attend the party. Yep, that is three of the same articles and to tell you the truth, Kiszla's was the shortest and the only one I read.

Colorado_mediumBuffs' QBs will get a heads-up before opener - The Denver Post
Notes from yesterday scrimmage and post interviews: the quarterbacks will know who is starting "soon" but the public won't be made aware until game time, RB Rodney Stewart was held out of the scrimmage yesterday as a precautionary measure and NO INJURIES were reported. Looks like WR Andre Simmons and Anthony Wright are providing some deep ball threat capabilities and deciding on a third string quarterback still remains a headline in many news articles. If we get to the third stringer this year, it is not going to be a fun year.

Colorado_mediumBuffs still undecided at QB - Boulder Daily Camera
It looks like true freshmen DE/LB Forrest West and DT Nate Bonsu will be given plenty of opportunities to show their ability at Colorado early...I cannot wait to see what they do with Forrest West. Is he a defensive end, is he a rush end, will the plug him in the middle? Either way, it will be fun to watch:

He wasn't ready to discuss specific position battles Saturday evening but he did say true freshmen have earned playing time. The true freshman expected to play on defense for CU are defensive linemen Nate Bonsu and Forrest West.

Colorado_mediumCU, CSU series likely set for Denver, Deal through 2021 expected to be released Monday - Boulder Daily Camera

When Colorado and Colorado State meet at Folsom Field a week from today, it will likely be the final time they do so on either institution`s campus until at least 2021 and maybe even longer. Administrators from both schools, along with Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, are expected to announce an agreement Monday that will return the series to Invesco Field in Denver beginning next season. A press conference has been scheduled for Monday morning at Invesco Field.

Colorado_mediumWoelk: Buffs won`t quite hit 10 this season - Boulder Daily Camera
Neill Woelk of the BDC runs down this year's schedule and gives his predictions game by game. His overall forecast:

That adds up to eight wins, a berth in the Big 12 title game, Hawkins` first winning season in Boulder and a decent bowl for the Buffs. (It also means the Buffs will still have a chance for 10 wins, but we`re not going to pick them over Texas in the title tilt.) That will send them to the Jan. 2 Alamo Bowl, where they`ll play Illinois and pick up their ninth win of the year.

Jim Armstrong of the Denver Post writes about the "atypical" year in Colorado prep football, producing five division one quarterbacks.
