He will leave CU with 29 school records, but MacIntyre said Richardson "could leave with about 60 if he stayed another year. I’m excited for Paul, but sad for us at the same time. We’ll keep going forward . . . he leaves a great legacy for us and our receiving corps. He came to work every day."

Mike MacIntyre says Paul Richardson does need to get bigger

"The other side of it is, there are bigger men hitting him, holding onto the ball when they go up for jump balls. That’s something Paul and I talked about early in the year. In the spring he didn’t really make those plays when he got jarred. That’s something we worked on all fall. He worked on drills where he’d get hit when he caught it and he started making those plays this year."

The natural comparison for Richardson would be DeSean Jackson (5-10, 175) of the Philadelphia Eagles, who has posted three 1,000-yard seasons in his six-year professional career.

11. Colorado: Even while losing at Utah, it was clear that this team took a big step forward in Year 1 under Mike MacIntyre. The Buffaloes darn near notched a huge comeback on the road, showing fight until the very end. A 4-8 season and 1-8 finish in Pac-12 play might not feel very good overall, but this team is much improved compared to 2012. Now, can it take a big step forward in 2014?

Mike MacIntyre: "We need to recruit a little bit of everything"

"Right now it hasn’t gone as well as I’d like," he said. "But it’s way from over. Hopefully — it always seems like the last minute — one or two kids will look at Mom and Dad and say, ‘I’m not going that far away. I’m staying right here.’ Hopefully, that will work out. We keep pushing."

Ranking the Pac-12 Title Game's Potential Neutral Site Stadiums |

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said last November that it would be at least a few more years until the conference title game would move to a neural location, the rationale being a more "typical football atmosphere" and "increased ticket sales." Alas, the lackluster excitement for the first two editions of the game have largely disproved that theory. Should the neutral-site title game come sooner rather than later, here’s how we rank the potential sites.

What is not clear is how George plans to fast track the project without being able to pay for it considering the department is facing another large revenue shortfall this year on the heels of a $7.5 million shortfall last year. The department is nearly $30 million in debt to the school because of the costs of switching conferences in 2011, poor football ticket sales and multiple coaching buyouts in football.

"It’s big, no question," he said. "Every game on our schedule is big but Colorado State is a special one. Anytime you lose like we did up there two years ago and they rush the floor, you know it’s a big game for them. We want to make sure that doesn’t happen this time. It’s one game – we can’t make it bigger than it is, but you don’t have to worry about the Buffs overlooking this one."

"We don’t get caught up in that. We just play. I’ve been involved in a few more of these types of games than him, and it is neat for the state of Colorado," Eustachy said. "Tomorrow night is a challenge that might be insurmountable. They’re definitely the better team, but we’ll see what happens."
