Late Afternoon "Buff Bites"

Colorado_mediumWoelk is wishing for what we all would like to see next season.  The best running game in the Big 12. 

Darrell Scott right, Darrell Scott left, Rodney Stewart around the corner. Good old-fashioned, run-it-down-their-throats football, the kind that wears on defenses, the kind that works in any weather.

Colorado_mediumMeanwhile, over at the Wide Receiver position, Josh Smith is aiming for big things in 2009 as well:

"That was big for me honestly," Smith said. "For it being my fourth year overall playing football in my life, to even be mentioned with somebody with a name as big as Rashaan Salaam and to have anything over 1,000 yards in any position is always good. I was at 2,000 and that was like, 'Wow.' "

Smith finished the year with 1,987 all-purpose yards. He set school records with a total of 1,568 return yards and 50 kickoff returns. He also gained 387 yards receiving and 32 rushing.

And now that he has flirted with Salaam's record of 2,349 all-purpose yards, he wants to break it.

"I'm a winner. I want to take it all," he said. "I want tobe on top of that list."

Colorado_mediumNow in non-Buff news, I'm sure many of you out there are hockey fans lamenting the sharp downturn of the Avs these past few seasons.  But if you're a fan of hockey in general make sure and check out the new SB Nation Playoff Hub.
