"He certainly did a lot of good things and if you've got a guy that's stepping up to do that, you've got to, yeah," Adams said. "I think he ended up with the lion's share of the carries, by far, but it's one of those things you can look at and say what can we do better? You always have to look back at it and see how you can change and adapt to make the team more successful."
"I don't know how much the (records) count for if you don't have the win," CU sophomore quarterback Sefo Liufau said. "It's glamorous to have (them), but we want to have team success over individual success."
Regarding the UW loss, head coach Mike MacIntyre was most impressed with freshman offensive lineman Sam Kronshage, who stepped into the game after the starter Jeromy Irwin went down with an ankle injury early in the first half. "Sam did well against one of the leading sackers in the country (UW’s Hau'oli Kikaha)," MacIntyre said. "Sam battled him well and for his first time out there this season against a guy that good, he did good job."
The Wildcats dropped multiple opportunities in their disappointing loss at the Rose Bowl, but their Pac-12 South chances are still far from over. At 6-2, they'll need UCLA and USC both to drop another game, but the Wildcats still have their shot at division-leading Arizona State. The homestretch for Rich Rodriguez begins with a chance to regain confidence in Tucson. Colorado, meanwhile, has shown definite signs of life this year, but they're desperate to scratch out at least one Pac-12 win on the season. Their final three games -- this one, at Oregon, and versus Utah -- are all daunting.
One thing CU does well is maintain balance. Five players have 20 receptions and five have 48 or more carries, so the offensive weapons are aplenty. Liufau is not one to sleep on as a run threat, either … An interesting area of contrast is in the scoring breakdown. The Wildcats have jumped on opponents in the first and third quarters this season, while the Buffaloes have struggled in each of those opening periods … Expect a lot of plays: both squads run 85-some plays and rack up more than 27 first downs a game
The Buffs haven't picked up a conference win even though they have been competitive through most of the games in four of their last five matchups. Colorado has two double-overtime losses in the last five games, it lost by five to Oregon State, and the Buffs were within a touchdown and two-point conversion heading into the fourth quarter Saturday against Washington. But there still isn't a tally mark in the "W" column. Do that and they'll move ahead of Washington State. Until then, they're holding down the No. 12 fort.
Colorado is its own worst enemy: Buffaloes fans don’t want to hear "at least they are playing better." Sometimes they are, sometimes they aren’t. Colorado looked pretty good the first 25 minutes or so against Washington. But four turnovers, including a pick-six, were costly as the Buffs blew three different 10-point leads. It’s one thing to say Colorado is going to shock someone. Now it’s time to actually do it. The postseason is officially out of the picture, but three ranked teams in Arizona, Oregon and Utah remain. The Buffs can’t dance, but they can certainly trip someone up. Or so we keep saying ...

They have a core of veterans and are led by a senior guard. There’s plenty to like here and, if nothing else, this group has been through the fire. Furthermore, the Buffs, once again, find themselves with great timing: This just isn’t that great of a Pac-12 season.
All of them were greats for the Buffs, and all of them have overshadowed Askia Booker during his time here in Colorado. But when it's all said and done, it appears that Ski is going to have left the biggest mark on the school's record books when he leaves Boulder. In fact, in the future when "All-Time Great Buffs" discussions come up, Booker should be in the conversation.
The Buffs (reportedly) beat the Pioneers by 7 in their secret scrimmage. I got that information from my friend Justin Coughlin, who played for the Pioneers from '08-'12 (which is kind of a source, imo). The only other information he had was that it went "really well" (that would be a DU perspective).

For the past three weeks, however, the true freshman from Denver East High School hasn't been able to do much, as he continues nursing an injury to his left ankle. "I'm frustrated," CU head coach Tad Boyle said. "Every day he misses is not a good thing for him or our team. He's missing out on a lot of reps. I'm concerned. I'm not mad at him; it's not his fault, but it's disappointing."

On Monday, the Buffs (15-9, 7-5 Pac-12) moved into the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Top 25 rankings, at No. 21, for the first time since 2005. CU has its highest ranking since debuting the 2002 season at No. 21.
