281 days to the season opener

It’s Day One of a long offseason for the Colorado football team, and I’m already wondering what the Buffs are doing to get better. The Buffs have 281 days to improve and develop a little confidence and belief in themselves.

This season, particularly during the second half of the year, I heard different members of the team talk about how what happened on the field was the fault of the players and couldn’t or shouldn’t be blamed on coaching. I’m not sure I buy that, but I’m willing to play along.

 So while I know these guys deserve a little break from the game, I find myself wondering what the Buffs are doing today to get better for 2010.

For three years running, I’ve heard players talk during the offseason about how that particular offseason was the best the program has experienced in recent memory. I’m not buying it this time.

The Buffs might actually have an outstanding offseason this year, but I think I’ll wait to write about it when we actually have some proof of it.  Otherwise, it’s just talk, and if there is one thing I know CU football fans are sick of, it’s bold, brash words with little or nothing backing them up.

    Yes that is true, we are sick of the bold, brash words…. How come your blog posts don't match your reporting? ie – Your recent fluff article on becoming bowl eligible in 2010?
