It's D-Day minus 30. Or as we like to call it: Fall Camp
It won't be long now.
Fall Camp technically started yesterday at 4pm; with pictures, meetings, and the Annual CUBuffs.com Fall Camp Extravaganza (my name, not theirs). - Here's the Camp Schedule in a printable format from Buffzone if you want to attend any practices.
Today B.G. Brooks starts his position-by-position article series with the Wide Receivers. He paints a very promising picture.
CU's roster features a three-year starter and probable record-breaker in senior Scotty McKnight, but probable game-breakers at wide receiver have been scarce - until now.
"He's like me," Clemons said [of Patterson]. "He's going to get the chance to showcase what he didn't get to do at SC. We've both got the most to prove to our supporters - and our doubters."
[Patterson:] "It doesn't add any pressure, it only increases the high expectations I have for myself. I had set my bar high when I got on campus. 'RP' and my teammates have set it high, too. All that has just made me more motivated."
Dan Hawkins' Buffs face familiar issues - Buffzone - More convincing reasons why we should be hopeful heading into camp.
Hawkins and his players believe there is finally a better blend of talent, experience and depth throughout the roster and the program could be poised to surprise just as it is parting ways with most of its long-time rivals.
