Yesterday, the Colorado Buffaloes concluded their spring with a spirited, 42-play (2011's game was 105 plays) spring game in front of an estimated 7,150 fans (seems a bit high) at Folsom Field. With 16 total players unable to participate due to injury or personal reasons and only two early enrollees from the class of 2012, Jon Embree was forced to make due with a limited roster. In fact, four of the days five touchdowns were scored by current or former walk-ons. In each half, the team gave it's skill players some work in 7-on-7 drills before moving to a full on scrimmage.
Connor Wood impressed in his first playing time in front of Buffaloes fans and Josh Ford stole the show for the second year in a row with 142 yards a year after going over 160. Below are some thoughts from the game.
