Ex-CU Buffs star Andre Roberson resists urge to say "I told you so"

"They just didn’t really know what was going on in the whole process," Roberson said. "They were just looking from the outside-in; they didn’t really have the same information as me. So, it’s understandable that some people were disappointed that I left, but I to do what’s best for me and my family."

Thomas said the biggest change for him has been the busy schedule and more intense workouts. So far, he's managed to work through those things to be a productive player off the bench for CU. In a Dec. 7 game against Kansas, Thomas had a veteran-type play in which he purposely forced up a shot in order to draw a foul on KU sophomore Jamari Traylor. The play worked and Thomas went to the line for a pair of free throws.

"Andre was the leading rebounder in the nation," Johnson said of Roberson, who will be in Denver with the Thunder on Tuesday to play the Nuggets.

Lappe knew she probably didn't have one player on her roster to replace Jeffery's stat line every night this season, but she has been pleased with what she is getting from Lexy Kresl and Brittany Wilson in tandem at the point. "They're two different point guards, but what they have been able to do in terms of getting our team into the offense, helping our offense just move the ball and get everybody involved I think has been a huge bonus for us," Lappe said.

Colorado_mediumBuffs Football! - Q&A with Rick George Part I: Facilities - Great two part series with Athletic Director Rick George

I said, "This is not a want. This is a need. This is something that we have to have right now for our student-athletes.' When we have student-athletes changing in a handicap bathroom stall, both men's and women's, because there is no place to change for any of our sports other than football in this facility, that is not acceptable. And so there were issues that we needed to address like that. And space issues with the small weight room. Right now we have to start working out at six in the morning and end at nine o'clock at night to get all our sports teams in on a daily basis. That is not acceptable. When we only have 5,000-square feet of academic space, we need to expand that. So as we looked at this, it was a really broad based plan that we really wanted to satisfy those needs. When you look at our vision and our mission when it comes out, the No. 1 priority for us is going to be our student-athletes. We have to solve some of our needs for our student-athletes. That is what we focused on first.

8. Mike McIntyre Colorado McIntyre gets a lot of credit for pulling the Buffs out of the absolutely doldrums of college football, but he still has a long ways to go as the Buffs only won two games against FBS opponents this year and regularly got blasted by quality opponents. Even though they had their struggles, and he is near the bottom of this list, McIntyre looked like a good hire in his first season in Boulder.

"Coach Mac is a very interesting Head Football Coach," Walker told "I say that because I have played for a lot of different coaches and he is very unique in the way he actually cares more about his players as individuals. He cares about his players like they are his family that was impressive to me. He is a more complete coach because he cares about everything. Coach Walters is a great coach, he played wide receiver and was one of the best at it."
