Recapping Colorado Buffaloes and college football news from around the web.
Since the school year, football and basketball seasons are all beginning soon, I wanted to ask you guys once again to help spread the word about our little community. We have continued to grow since our inception and the main reason that Bob, David, Ash and I do this is because we want to each do our part to help create a fantastic place for Buffs fans to congregate. Know someone who doesn't know about us? Let em know. New freshman enrolling at CU? Tell them about TRR.
As always, make sure and get involved on Facebook and Twitter as well. I've made some changes to the Facebook page in order to make it more than just an RSS feed. Check it out, we have an interesting poll up right now and we're counting down the remaining days until the season starts. Thank you guys for coming back again and again, this season (our 4th) is going to be great.

Brooks: Kasa Refocuses, Rediscovers What He's After - CUBuffs.com - Official Athletics Web site of the University of Colorado
"They were heart-to-heart conversations," McGhee recalled. "He said he didn't perform to his own expectations last season (and) he was looking to refocus and get himself into a position where he could be major contributor. The changing of the guard provided him the opportunity to do that.
"He's a huge guy in our whole scheme of things. We're expecting a lot of things from him. He's an older kid and everybody knows who he was (at Legacy). We let him know, 'Hey, man, it's your time. You're going into your third year and we're going to give you every opportunity to show us what you have.'"

John Schrock solidifies hold on No. 3 QB job for CU Buffs - Buffzone
Through two weeks of fall camp, no player on the CU roster has made more of the opportunity to impress the new staff than Schrock. "He definitely solidified himself as the No. 3 guy," Embree said after Thursday's practice, where Hansen was given a rest and Schrock was running the first-team offense.
"I feel good about our quarterback position." Embree named Hansen -- the on-again, off-again starter the three previous seasons under the vacillating Dan Hawkins -- the undisputed No. 1 quarterback after spring drills. Backup Nick Hirschman has missed most of fall camp with a foot injury.
