Buffs, Rams Sign Deal to Play Rocky Mountain Showdown in Denver

According to multiple sources, Colorado and Colorado St. will continue their series in Denver starting in 2010 until 2019, with 2020 the game being played in Fort Collins. It looks the games with Minnesota in the future will have to be reworked or delayed to solidify the commitment of six home games a year, according to cubuffs.com: CU's commitment to host six home games every season at Folsom is solidified for the next 10 years. For that to happen over the length of this new agreement, 20 of the 30 non-conference games the Buffaloes will schedule over the next decade will have to be in Boulder (CU annually plays four home Big 12 Conference games). The challenge is that of those 20 non-league home games, CU must find 10 opponents willing to come to Boulder without the expectation that the Buffaloes will return the game at their respective home stadiums. With many BCS schools now playing seven or even eight home games, the Buffaloes are now positioned with this Front Range model to match what CU's peers are doing, but also with the attractive benefit that one of those games will take place in one of the NFL's premier facilities. "The players thoroughly enjoy playing in one of the finest NFL stadiums and the atmosphere is like opening your season in a bowl game," Bohn said. To allow for the above, some established home-and-home series are being rearranged; for example, one with Minnesota set for 2012 and 2013 will be delayed to early in the 2020s. School officials are also working on "two-for-ones," and have announced such with Fresno State, where the Bulldogs will visit Boulder twice (2011, 2013) with CU traveling once to Fresno (2012). edited a lot by irish1611, thanks to roxbombers for the initial post.

Pre- Colorado State Depth Chart Released

No big surprises this week. Freshman Forrest West and Nate Bonsu are in the two deep rotation on the defensive line. It looks like Jimmy Smith will get the nod over Ben Burney at cornerback but I expect a lot of time from Burney this year. Kickoff return lists Demetrius Sumler and Darrell Scott as the top two and punt return belongs to Jason Espinoza. Freshman Zach Grossnickle only appears on the depth chart as a punter and it is third string behind Matt DiLallo and Darrell Scott. Something tells me that the bottom four receivers are going to start making a push into the top three spots soon enough. Right now, your starting wide receivers are Scotty McKnight, Ryan Maxwell and Jason Espinoza...

Former Michigan, Current Buff WR Toney Clemons in the Middle of the Michigan Probe

The University of Michigan said Sunday that it will investigate the allegations of players and parents who told the Free Press that the football team violated NCAA rules governing off-season workouts, in-season practices and summer scrimmages. Late Sunday, former Wolverine receiver Toney Clemons backed up those players' accounts -- telling the Free Press that U-M coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff required players to put in workout and practice hours that surpassed what the NCAA allows. Clemons, who transferred to the University of Colorado, said the Colorado coaches follow the rules, as did former Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr. Part of me wishes that Clemons would have said "no comment" to media surrounding the Michigan questions purely to avoid any distractions as the season is now around the corner. Here is some more comments on ESPN.com: "The allegations are true," Clemons said. "Nothing is fabricated or exaggerated in that story. I was there on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. or 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. depending on if guys needed treatment. You were there daylight to nighttime." Clemons has since transferred to Colorado. On Saturday night, another former Michigan starter and a current Michigan player who asked for anonymity started said the reports of excessive training and football-related activities were accurate. "On Sunday, it was lifting, film, dinner and practice," Clemons told Schad. "I usually got out around 10:20. I truly don't want to be associated with the program back there. But I am going to help benefit my teammates back there by speaking and giving testimony."

2009 Commit Edward Nuckols Not Greyshirting, Attends DII Seton Hill

According to the Seton Hill roster, DT Edward Nuckols is not greyshirting but in fact, attending DIVISION TWO Seton Hill in Pennsylvania. This is an absolutely shocking move not due to the fact that his attendance at Colorado in the future looks very slim (always the case when a kid doesn't qualify as a freshman) but because he transferred to a division two school meaning he will still have to sit out a year next season if he wants to go the division one route. He also burns a year of eligibility by going division II as a freshman. The protocol is always to go to a JUCO or greyshirt so you don't have to sit out a year when you try to make the jump to division one, not lose two years + one year of eligibility. Odd choice to say the least. How he ended up in Pennsylvania at a division two school as a California kid doesn't add up right now? Former Mission High School teammate, So. RB Donte Potter, also plays for Seton Hill, possibly a connection to the school. Who knows? Best of luck to Nuckols even if we don't see him in a Buffs uni.

CUBuffs.com - Bohn Clears WR Andre Simmons to Begin Practicing

Receiver Andre Simmons was cleared by Colorado athletics director Mike Bohn Wednesday afternoon to begin practicing immediately with the Buffaloes. Simmons, a transfer from Independence (Kan.) Community College, reported with the rest of the Buffs on Aug. 6, but has been held out of practices pending verification of his eligibility. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder from Blackville, S.C., received a round of applause from his teammates during Wednesday afternoon's position meeting, conducted by head coach/receivers coach Dan Hawkins. "Guys, let's hear it for 'Dre' - he's good to go today," Hawkins said. Big news for the success of the offense in 2009.
