[8/7]: They noticed the same thing that everybody has been saying: These practices look faster/crisper/(insert your own positive adjective) than practices of the past few years. Guys know what's going on and they're really into the practices. The prime example of this today was during the O v D section. Ryan Miller was really pumped up, cheering on the 2nd O-line and very vocal with his fellow first-teamers. Everybody seems excited to be there working hard.
[8/6]: The O-line split up again after the standard blocking sled stuff and everything, and Kent Riddle took the Tackles and paired them with the TEs to work on blocking together, while Denver Johnson worked with the Cs and Gs.

Football Quotes From CU Fall Sports Media Day - CUBuffs.com - Sounds like the team has received some breaks as far as class scheduling goes:
ON MORNING PRACTICES-"The biggest thing is academics; having many more class offerings in the afternoon than there are earlier in the morning. That's a huge part of it. The other part of it is getting some more daylight, where in the evening we don't have as many hours, particularly when the time changes.

They're going to practice and get to class and get their school work done and get back into bed."
