Colorado Buffaloes first year head coach Jon Embree has released his first depth chart of consequence as the team begins preparing for week one opponent Hawaii. Not a whole lot of surprises from what we had expected to see, but there were a few notable exceptions.
- First up was the information that we already knew, freshman (he's used his redshirt season because he took classes last year) punter Darragh O'Neill has earned the starting role over incumbent Zach Grossnickle. O'Neill is a walk-on who is playing organized football for the first time ever. Wow.
- As expected, Tony Jones is listed as the number two running back.
- Prepare for some stressful punt returns with Richardson and Speedy receiving. Please stay healthy, please stay healthy...
