Colorado_mediumBrooks: Don't Count Cody Out - CUBuffs.com
Eric Kiesau has changed his tone from Tyler Hansen being "the guy" to the Dan Hawkins company line of "there's a very good chance you see both of them."

"Right now, the plan is Tyler's going to play first," added offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Eric Kiesau. "It's kind of hard, because there are some things that Cody does well. If we can use that, we are. "We don't have a plan yet to do anything like that, but you don't know really. We just have to wait and see how Tyler does."

Colorado_mediumUtah football: Wynn isn't playing, but he's not complaining - Salt Lake Tribune
Former Buff commit QB Jordan Wynn was asked about the situation at Colorado and if he has any regrets about decommitting. Wynn was thought to be the starter as a true freshman for the Utes but remains the backup. He has not seen any action this year:

A new storyline in the Wynn saga developed this week when Colorado coach Dan Hawkins decided to change quarterbacks. Hawkins demoted his son, Cody, and replaced him with sophomore Tyler Hansen. The connection here is that Wynn decommitted from Colorado because he thought the Buffs were fully loaded at quarterback. He felt there would be a better chance to play sooner in his career with the Utes. Wynn knows about the quarterback change at CU because he still talks to Cody Hawkins "every now and then. We're still close. There's no bad blood." But the musical chairs at Colorado leads to a final question: Does Wynn regret his decision to leave CU? "No, not at all," he said. "I'm definitely happy where I am right now. We're in the top 25 and we're rolling right now."

"I thought the way they handled the trip, the pregame warm up, everything ... it was just different," Dan Hawkins said. "There was definitely some emotional growth. ... You want to seal the deal and it`s always tough because you`re thinking, 'Wow, we have the No. 2 team on the ropes on the road and you`d like to finish that deal.` "Those days are coming."

"We know that Tyler Hansen is similar in the passing game to Cody Hawkins in a lot of ways," Mangino said. "They share a lot of the same characteristics. Obviously, (Hansen) is a little bit faster. Maybe a little quicker, better athlete, which brings a new dimension to their offense in running. We will certainly be prepared for that challenge."
