The big news for the Buffs yesterday was the commitment of former 4-star Wide Receiver Toney Clemons. Clemons is transferring in from Michigan and will hit the field for game action in 2010. Check out our full write up here.
Speaking of Wide Receivers, who does Tim Griffin think had a break out performance this spring?
Colorado WR Jason Espinoza: After arriving at school as a walk-on cornerback, Espinoza hoped to contribute as a punt returner last year before a broken collarbone ended his season. After switching to wide receiver, he emerged as Colorado's top receiver in the spring, punctuating his work with game-high totals for receptions and yardage in the spring game.
... and what Buffalo does he think needs have a break out fall?
Colorado QB Tyler Hansen: Looked to be competing at a near equal basis with Cody Hawkins before he broke his right thumb in the spring game. He'll have to recover quickly from post-spring surgery if he wants to renew the competition when the Buffaloes report in August.

Notre Dame playing at Yankee Stadium? Irish is going to kill me for saying this but does Notre Dame realize they aren't relevant like they once were? Join a freaking conference already...
Need a laugh? Listen to this interview between ESPN 1070 Radio Host Bob Kravitz and SBNation site Stampede Blue's author Big Blue Shoe. Kravitz just cannot get over the fact the Big Blue Shoe writes under a "anonymous" name and is unable to carry on a reasonable conversation. Hey Bob, my real name is available on my profile and in case you are too lazy to click a link it's Jon Woods.
