Thursday Buff Bites

Colorado_mediumRunning back coach Darian Hagan says in a article that last year, Darrell Scott was thinking too much and this year, he just wants him to play. Being back down to 200 pounds and in elite shape should help that "just play" motto:

"I expect perfection every time out," Hagan said.  "By the time the spring game comes around, we'll be where we want to be, especially Darrell Scott.  We're playing hard and consistent, but I want to get to the point where they're just out there playing football and not thinking about the little things."

Hagan said Scott at times tried to be perfect, a good problem to have. 

"He knows what he's doing but you can't be perfect," Hagan said. "He just needs to let his natural abilities take over.  Just go out and play and everything will take care of itself."

Colorado_mediumLast week, it was Brian Lockridge, this week it is Darrell Scott getting every publication to write about him. This time, Neil Woelk takes a stab. Tons of good quotes in this article from Darrell, Darian and coach Hawk.

"He was a little pudgy when he got here last year," admitted CU running backs coach Darian Hagan. "He was a little soft.

"But that's all gone. To his credit, he has totally invested in the spring. He's got a fire in his belly and he's putting everything he has out there every day."

Colorado_mediumDL Taj Kaynor got an awakening last year during the Missouri game last year. "He said he made a mistake on a running play during the game and his misstep led to coaches moving him to the scout team." That mistake has led him to refocus himself and now hopes to be a key player this year for the Buffs. We need it!

Colorado_mediumA little mention of our offensive line commit playing baseball:

Brignola doesn't look like a big bopper compared to Gus Handler, the 6-4, 265-pound first baseman headed to Colorado on a football scholarship.

That's a big first baseman.
