Mike MacIntyre hoping to find another Whit Taylor on Colorado roster | The Field House — The Denver Post

"So what I’m trying to say is, there is some Whit Taylor on Colorado’s team," MacIntyre told the crowd. "And they might be one of our quarterbacks. But you never know until you throw a young man into battle and you see his character revealed. That taught me a great lesson that day."

Buffs shuffling O-line again - Pac-12 Blog - ESPN - With the news breaking late Friday that Colorado offensive lineman Alex Lewis will transfer to Nebraska, and the subsequent news of Lewis' arrest last Sunday, the Buffs face change in the trenches once again.


The point is that Coloradans are free to do things other than drink, and sometimes keep huge animals as pets. What they are not free to do is drink too much and then smash someone's head into a brick wall in an altercation, especially if you are a huge pet called "a former lineman for the Colorado football team named Alexander Lewis, who can drink you under several large tables stacked end to end."

Best of the Pac-12's spring - Pac-12 Blog - ESPN

Best chance to join Pac-12 blog's All-Interview team: Some quotes from Colorado WR Paul Richardson from a 15-minute interview: " "I expect nothing less than for people to sell us short or pick us to finish last. I even joked before in another interview that if there was a spot below last they'd pick us there as well. But you never know what will happen in the Pac-12." " "I don't think Coach MacIntyre is in a bad position at all. I think he was given an opportunity to move up to this coaching job at a really good time. We're going to have some key players back and our young guys are going to have experience. To me, he came at a perfect time."

Tad Boyle discovered George King the same day Andre Roberson declared he'd go pro | The Field House — The Denver Post

"We could’ve banked Andre’s scholarship and used it in the 2014 class and we knew in 2014 we’re going to sign a point guard, a wing – a 6-5 to 6-7 wing which is what George King is — and we’re going to try and sign a big man," Boyle told the crowd. "We had to compare George King relative to the 2014 wings on our list. There was one wing on our list who was as good or maybe a little bit better but there was no guarantee we were going to get that guy. George was better than everybody else on our list in 2014."

In addition to Colorado, King garnered offers from Colorado State, Gonzaga, Marquette, Texas A&M and UTEP: "I thought (Colorado) was a really good fit for me. They have a really good coaching staff."

"Everybody comes in nervous as a freshman; they're not sure what's going to happen and if they're going to play or not," said Johnson, who added that he had a great year academically, as well. "I just let my defense take care of that, because that's what coach preaches. I just defended, I was able to get more minutes and then I was able to score more. "It was great, just knowing the coach can rely on you as a freshman already. That just shows great optimistic things for the future. Next year should be even better."

Frei: CU Buffs, CSU Rams should bring back baseball - The Denver Post

I've become more militant about this in the past few years because after Colorado joined the Pac-12 Conference, the time seemed ripe ... and nothing happened. This still is the reality: • CU is the only school in the Pac-12 without an official intercollegiate baseball program. The only one. • Colorado State is one of three schools (joining Wyoming and Boise State) in this academic year's Mountain West Conference without baseball.
