The 4 - 3 Edition of Buff Bites

From the Daily Camera:

Hansen broke the huddle on eight drives and took 49 snaps, generating 219 yards of offense. Cody Hawkins was in the lineup for five drives, 33 plays and generated 134 yards.

Meaning Tyler Hansen was .4 yards better per play than Cody. Not a whole lot but still a difference. A better note would be Cody zero touchdowns, Tyler 2 touchdowns.

Tim Griffin of ESPN is in love with the gutsy move that Coach Hawkins made to take the red shirt off of Tyler Hansen and pull his own son. Later, he pretty much inferred that Hawkins "out risked" the supposedly more risky coach in Ron Prince. Griffin has the Buffs as the #8 team right now in the Big 12.

9. Kansas State -- Ron Prince likes to call himself a gambler, but where was the panache when settling for early field goals and one-point conversion against Colorado?

The million dollar question is whether Hansen will officially take over the full time reins as the Buffs quarterback? Dan Hawkins said yesterday that both Cody Hawkins and Tyler Hansen will play next week in Missouri but declined to name a starter. It is a tough decision to start the true freshman next week. This isn't Kansas State the Buffs are playing and it isn't at Folsom Field. My opinion is Hawkins gets the start but Hansen gets more of the playbook.

This guy from the Dallas Morning News losses all credibility early as he says:

...and unleashing this unknown signal-caller on the Big 12 and the astounded Kansas State Jayhawks on Saturday night.

Good win against that Kansas State Jayhawks team.

Schedule change: Next week the Buffs will be playing the Missouri Chiefs and the week following, CU will go against the Texas A&M Red Raiders.

Some recruiting news. It sounds like Texas DE Colton Nash really enjoyed his trip to Boulder this weekend. The 6'6" 240 lb 4.8 forty running end went as far to say that Colorado is his #1 choice right now and that he definitely wants to play in the Big 12.  He is ranked as the #34 strong side defensive end in the nation.
