Saturday Highlight Reel & Buff Bites - Is it Game Day yet?

28 Days Later...  I mean Left.

 Colorado_mediumCrisp, efficient first CU workout - The Denver Post 

If observers didn't know it, they might have guessed that Colorado's practice on Thursday was the 20th of August camp rather than the first.

Colorado_medium'Paperwork' Prevents Patterson's Day 1 Participation - - It may just be a formality, but it just irks me that Patterson wasn't able to participate in the inital camp practice.

"We're working through a paperwork deal on him, so we're just waiting on other folks to get to all that stuff," Hawkins said. Asked if the process appeared to be a formality, he answered, ''Yeah, yeah . . . it seems like there's always some of that" to deal with at this time of year.

Colorado_mediumThis could be the last time we play Oklahoma after all those years in the Big-8 and Big-12.  Here's a nice highlight reel (with the game sound this time) of our most recent game against the Sooners:
