Sprung Game

The super flow with more jokes than Bazooka Joe
A mix between Superfly Snuka and a superhoe
Chew an MC like El Chupa Nibre
Digest a group and sell the poop on eBay...

Thoughts and observations from this past Saturday's CU Spring Game:

THE GOOD:
-Wayne Arnold is definitely the real deal at QB. He has separated himself from JUZCO transfer Nick Nelson with his impressive knowledge of the CU offense, personnel, and ability in the pocket. By the time game one versus the sheep rolls around on Labor Day weekend, Wayne should be firmly entrenched as the number one signal caller.

-Bernard Jackson in his new Slash role has the looks of a good move by the coaching staff. BJax lined up at QB on Saturday and ran off a few long runs, as well as getting nearly 100 yards in kickoff returns. The staff must find a way for him to also be involved as a receiver. The change of pace BJax will give to defenses could be key, especially if the brain trust can get him into the receiving game as well.

-It was hard to gauge the defense since they were going versus a thin OL and inexperienced QBs. The DL stood out with George Hypolite poised to have a nice Fall, as well as DLs Brandon Nicholas and youngster Jason Brace. Big 12 receivers will undoubtedly be on the lookout for the CU safeties, among them Ryan Walters, who can bring the big hits. Transfer DJ Dykes will also offer a physical presence at the position.

THE BAD:
-The running game won't remind anyone of the Chris Brown era, but maybe the Rick Neuheisel era in which the team struggled to break 100 yards. Hugh Charles still has a case of happy feet and the backs behind him (Byron Ellis, Kevin Moyd) aren't the big back types the staff craves. A glimmer of hope could be in Demetrius Sumler, a bruiser-type, and incoming transfer PT Gates, who Dan Hawkins called a "Reggie Bush" type.

-The receiving corps are still struggling to catch the ball, witness the numerous drops on Saturday. A few of the passes were a bit off the mark, but many simply bounced off their hands and even a few were picked off after drops. The incumbents Dusty Sprague, Jerrel Yates, Alvin Barnett, and Patrick Williams had better catch ALOT of tosses this summer, as CU has three incoming stud frosh WRs coming in this fall in Josh Smith, Kendrick Celestine, and Markas Simas.

-The above running game troubles could start up front with the thinned out OL. The entire Spring ran with 6 or 7 OL during drills. One injury and the line is a walk-on or true freshman away from a revamped and shuffled unit that could spell doom versus the likes of Florida State, Oklahoma, and the rest of the fierce Big 12. Watch for all-world recruit Ryan Miller to start the moment he steps on campus.

THE SLUSHY:
-Two time Slushy Gutter winner Juck still being razzed for missing the KU game due to a massive hangover...Two time Slushy Gutter winner JBiz talking Mrs. Biz into giving him a ride to a post-game beer at a local bar because he'd left his car downtown after a wicked Friday night of drinking...Many yells and cheers related to "It ain't intramurals, brother!"...About 6500 in attendance, well short of the high five figures some other schools get, but hey, it's Colorado, we have plenty of other stuff to do. (Like the aforementioned drinking)...Our friend Fatty questioning the meaning of "tea bag"

Wayne Arnold from the Wonder Years gave someone a tea bag? With a pregnant chick? And Bernard Hopkins had 6500 sheep? The singer Chris Brown was there with Reggie Bush? Speak freaking English, Commish.

Little Hawk was 12 of 20, 119 yds, 1 int, 1 TD. Better #s in the 7 on 7 drills too. Remember, this is THE BIG 12!!! Brutha!
