Sorry Texas fans. Texas is my second favorite team in the BIG 12 but I couldn’t resist.

Darrell Scott to win the Ray Guy Award?

Just got back from practice. It was supposed to be in the 90’s but the clouds came in and made it nice and cool.

It wasn’t the best practice for offensive players. In Coach Hawkin’s words “Today was the defenses day.” There were some miscues on offense but overall I thought it was a pretty good day to see what this team can do.

Cody looked pretty good. I don’t think he looks much bigger than last year but he looks like a leader.

Darrell Scott had a better day as a punter than a running back. He was kicking the heck out of the ball. The crowd was ooohing and ahhhing on every punt. Him punting on the occasional play is going to be a great advantage for the Buffs. If you were a Defensive Coordinator and saw Scott in the backfield on fourth and short what would you do? Scott had a great play where he ran over a safety and kept going. He fumbled on one play and Coach Hagan was not pleased. But wow he is a big kid. I felt like a small child next to him and I’m 9 years his senior.

Sumler and Polk had okay an okay practice. Nothing spectacular but nothing bad either.

Max Tuioti-Mariner had ice on his knee and didn’t practice. That bummed me out. I am really looking forward to seeing him play this year.

Nate Solder is huge. He looks like that guy on Troy that Brad Pitt fights at the beginning. I can see that Coach Hawkins has some plans for him. Maybe a little goal line tackle eligible type play.

I thought the best player on the offense today was Riar Geer. He had a great catch and bowled a guy over all while carrying two more players on his back.

Josh Smith also had a circus catch the drew applause from the pretty decent sized crowd.

The defensive line got some good pressure on the QB. They had 3 turnovers I believe. Hypolite looked like he got a little banged up but he looked fine by the end of practice.

I am so glad its August. Only 22 more days till my birthday and the Rocky Mountain Showdown. I can’t wait!

We Talking About Practice?

So today I’m heading up to Boulder to see the Buffs practice.

I’m really excited about seeing the new Cody Hawkins with his loaded guns. I saw him in the Del Ward a few days ago but I only got a quick glance. He put on some muscle weight and it has been reported that he has more zip on the ball.

The Rabid Goldfish (George Hypolite) and Ryan Walters will be the leaders on a defense that will need some help this year.

They lost one of my favorite players at linebacker in Jordan Dizon. They also lost the guy who shutdown Michael Crabtree last year, Terrence Wheatley. It will be interesting to see which one of the corners steps up.

I’m also interested in seeing some of the newcomers. Max Tuioti-Mariner is a beast and I can’t wait to see him put defenders on their backside. Ray Polk looks like he will be a great player for years here. Have you seen this kid? He is bound to break a lot of the coed’s hearts. If he equals the number of hearts he breaks with the amount of touchdowns he scores, he is sure to be a Heisman winner.

Oh and then there are these two:

Lynn Katoa, Me, and Darrell Scott

I’m am Excited to see how Mr. Scott will do at altitude. We will see if he has gotten used to it yet.

Unfortunately, Katoa will probably red shirt this year due to some unfortunate events. The good thing is that we will have him for another year. Woot!

We seem to be loaded at the linebacker position with Major, Rippy, Sipili and Mohler so it might not be the worst thing for Katoa to red shirt.

Anyways I’m off to practice.
