Andre Roberson’s interesting week, Buffs linebacker Drew Lewis makes an exclusive list, and CU launches a campaign to keep Ralphie running for years to come.
ANDRE’S INTERESTING WEEK
Days after agreeing to a 3-year, $30 Million deal to remain with the Oklahoma City Thunder, former Buffs guard Andre Roberson was called out on twitter for leaving a ‘less then desirable tip) at a bar in Austin.
“Shouldn’t have had to tip you it was just a bottle at a bar...” Roberson first responded on twitter, which yielded some interesting reactions, for and against the four-year NBA veteran. The following day, Roberson sent out a longer explanation as to why he left the tip he did. He also apologized to CU for not adding up the tip correctly to his original charge.
A $13.97 tip on a $487.13 purchase should be $501.10, not $500. But seriously, who hasn’t made a similar mistake after having a couple of cocktails.
SAN ANTONIO OFFICIALLY SIGNS DERRICK WHITE
Last month, Derrick White saw his dreams realized when he was drafted 29th overall by the San Antonio Spurs. On Thursday, the Spurs announced they had officially signed the 23-year old former Buff. Terms of White’s deal were not announced per team policy.
DREW LEWIS MAKES EXCLUSIVE LIST
This week, SI.com college football writer Bruce Feldman released his annual ‘Freaks list’ of the “top workout warriors in college football.” Checking in at number 26 on Feldman’s top 40 freaks was Buffs inside linebacker Drew Lewis.
Judging by some of the numbers Lewis (6’2, 225-lb) put up during CU’s strength training this spring, I can see why Feldman had him on his list.
KEEP RALPHIE RUNNING
Since 1967, Ralphie has become synonymous with Colorado Football and this year marks the 50th anniversary of her first run. CU began a year-long celebration in honor of Ralphie Tuesday during a Fourth of July fireworks show at Folsom Field. As part of the celebration, CU is looking hoping to raise $50,000 by the end of the 2017 season to keep the tradition going strong for years to come. Click here to donate.
KICKER IN THE MAKING?
A runner-up for the Lou Groza Award (Nation’s Top Place kicker) in 2005, Mason Crosby set a total of 33 school records during his four years at CU. Last week the Buffs all-time leading scorer (307 points) tweeted a photo of his kid donning a Colorado helmet. Can’t wait to see another Crosby kicking 60-plus yard field goals at Folsom Field.
Congrats to former Buffs QB Bobby Pesavento and his wife Tina who welcomed a baby girl into the world this past week. Saylor Ann was born at 7:49am on July 4th. Mom is doing great, and Saylor Ann’s older sister Kennedi loves her reports Bobby.
