A Victorious Sunday Buff Bites

I am guessing that most of us are waking up this morning feeling pretty good. The Buffs are 3 - 0, our next opponent Florida State looked dysfunctional against a Wake Forest team that also looked dysfunctional and the Colorado Buffaloes welcome three star DL Nosa Eguae. It has been a refreshing 72 hours. We are all awaiting the AP/ESPN/Coaches rankings to see if the Buffs will be ranked. Thanks to FSU, it won't be a showdown of ranked opponents next week. Previewing the WVU game last week, we thought WVU would come out angry and look to get out of the blocks quick. We were wrong after the loss the ECU. After the loss to Wake, I think there is probably more internal issues on that Florida State team than we will ever know about. I can't imagine the defense is very fond of the offense right now. And can someone find FSU a quarterback? Or maybe an offensive coordinator?

Here is some links to hold you over on NFL football Sunday. Go Broncos.

ESPN fellow blogger Tim Griffin gives CU Buff RB Rodney Stewart one of his five "helmet stickers" for week 4 as "Speedy" rushed for a CU freshman record with 166 yards on 28 carries.

Big 12 roundup from the Rocky Mountain News. Man Iowa State came rushing back against UNLV.

Is there a better quote so far this year? The Denver Post talks about the big step this program has taken. The good thing: The Buffs aren't satisfied.

And for those who were there pre-Hawkins, it has been a better place. (Brad) Jones says the program still gets great players, but . . .

"Now the whole program seems like it's developed more," he said. "I don't want to say a better program, but there's no other way to describe it.

"Everything's much more detail-oriented. Everything's about doing things right. It just seems like you work on so much more and everything's more intricate. It just seems like the program has literally taken a step up."

Maybe this is a better quote:

Because, as Hypolite points out, "it doesn't matter if we beat the No. 21 team if we go out and get blown out by Florida State."

RB Kevin Moyd is frustrated after being #2 on the depth chart and not getting a carry, the Hawkins' are going to be grandparents and S Daniel Dykes was taken to the hospital last Tuesday night for a stomach virus. He expects to be back on the field for FSU

Hopefully yesterday's Boise State upset is enough for CU recruit DE Nick Kasa to tell Oregon that he is no longer interested in the Ducks. Kasa took in the game at Autzen Stadium yesterday along with OL Jack Harris, another CU recruit from Colorado. Hawkins has done a good job recruiting in state his last two years and signing these two Buffs would be huge in what is always need areas on a football team.

The Buffs upcoming game against FSU will be a homecoming of sorts for many of the players. It will also be a revenge game from last year in a contest that the Buffs felt like they let get away.

CU commit quarterback Jordan Wynn had a career game last night, going 19 - 23 for 356 and 4 touchdowns. Wynn's Oceanside team is tearing it up so far, going 3 - 0. Other CU QB commit Clark Evans also put up 4 touchdowns, throwing for 166 and running for another 66.

The Examiner reports that 65 fans were kicked out of Folsom Field last Thursday night, more than double the amount that was kicked out of the FSU game last year.
