Weekend Buff Bites - Pac 10, Big 12 Partnership?

Colorado_medium Expansion? What about a Pac-10-Big 12 partnership? - College Football Nation Blog - ESPN - A lot of talk has arisen over the past few days about the possibility of some sort of partnership between the Big 12 and Pac 10. That could mean anything from a shared television network to a much stronger, two division outlook. Check out the link and let us know what you think about the situation in the comments below. Should make for an interesting discussion...

Colorado_mediumColorado spring wrap - Big 12 Blog - ESPN - ESPN's recap of the Buffaloes spring. As you might imagine, the Toney Clemons buzz continues to get louder...

Three spring answers

1. Get to know Toney Clemons. The Michigan transfer made a big splash this spring, impressing his team enough to be the top pick in the draft when the Buffaloes split for the spring game. Clemons has size and speed, but 2010 will be about turning that into on-field production.

2. Stars staying strong. Colorado's two most consistent players a year ago, offensive tackle Nate Solder and running back Rodney Stewart, both had good springs. Stewart was protected from contact often with dwindling numbers at running back, but Solder caught a touchdown pass in the spring game after being drafted with the No. 2 pick before the game.

3. Hawkins' future not a distraction. Dan Hawkins will sit on maybe the hottest seat in the Big 12 this season, but he didn't address it much during the spring as his team went about its business.
