Buffs Are Mad As Hell

Cause I'm a player, doin what the players do
The package store was closed, okay my day is ruined...

A few highlights from the CU recruiting class and the Recruiting Luncheon:

--Clark Evans, a 6-5 230 lb QB from California could be the real deal. Many comparisons to a certain Florida QB, and we aren’t talking Jeff Garcia. At a size like that, Mr Evans could be resembling Big Ben by 2013.

--Offensive lineman Ryan Miller and Max Tuioto Mariner have been granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA. This is good news not only because they are tremendous players, but I like shortening Max’s name to MTM, and that fills my head with images of Mary Tyler Moore playing guard.

--The mood of the team can be summed up in one word: pissed. Tired of finishing around 500, tired of losing in the Big 12 North, tired of the Slushy Gutter Crew showing up all drunk and belligerent to the games. I made that last thing up.

--CU will play two Thursday Night games this year, making the following Fridays a hazy-headed start to the weekend.

--While the staff lost out on a few WR prospects on signing day (Diante Jackson- where ya head at?) they did manage to pull in three receivers with 6-3 height or more. Terdema Ussery from the Dallas area looks especially nimble.

--Top Colorado prospect Nick Kasa (DE) was a man among boys in his highlights. He simply overpowered, and more importantly- outspeeded, the opposition. I don’t think outspeeded is a word, but maybe we can make it one. Think Jared Allen-esque (minus the beard.)

--Coach Bill McCartney is the muthf*ckin man here in CO. When he spoke, the whole damn crowd listens. Plus, the man still has a healthy hate for the cornshuckers to the east, disparaging them numerous times.

--Coach Hawk reads a lot of books. His presentation featured a bunch of positive thinking titles that would make Tony Robbins proud.

--The class finished in the 40s by most services, but it addressed the two biggest needs: defensive line and wide receiver. Added to Kasa is stud DT Edward Nukols. But the biggest “need” was the addition of a kicker. The two-star kicker brings down a class rating, but perhaps could be the biggest pull.

--Wheat Ridge standout Parker Orms, penciled to be a DB in college, is becoming a folk hero in these parts before even donning the Black and Gold. Whether he can crack the two-deep in his time in Bolder remains to be seen, but he will be a crowd favorite.

--By 11:55am, most tables at the luncheon had finished their lunch and were nursing coffee or ice water. At our table, representing with eight SG Awards, there are no less than nine empty beer bottles. Slushy Gutter, indeed.
