You've obviously never been there.  Colorado should be doing better in recruiting than they do.  Great school and lots going for it... better conference, mild winters (you can ski and golf in the same day on the front range), lots of pretty girls from CA and AZ, beautiful campus, etc.

The only problem is the town of Boulder is so. fucked. up.

I graduated from CU and there is nothing wrong wIth boulder its continually rated one of he best places to live in the country, i don't know what's so "fucked up" about Boulder...outside of having a shitty football team. At least i got to rush the field when they beat WVU. But I would be shocked if he picked CU over Michigan.

The Gary Barnett scandals really turned CU Football into a festering pile of suck, which is fine by me because as far as I am concerned that was the most outrageous scandal in college football until the Jerry Sandusky thing.  Still, that was a while ago now.  One would think the recovery should have gotten underway by now.

True, never bet the house on where a recruit will end up.  That said, I have a hard time seeing a Jersey kid pining for the slopes of Colorado.   UM is his childhood fave, so I'm starting to feel better about this one.  C'mon Yuri, our helmets have wings!

I did forget about him obviously.  I didn't know he made it to the NFL either.  That's interesting.  I remember them hyping him up big time during the olympics but I didn't know if he was actually good or just good enough for the purposes of Bob Costas.  I would just think the coaches wouldn't want a kid to risk a season or career for another sport that can potentially be as much of an injury risk as football.  Even my high school bball coach didn't want us going skiing during the season.

If he still plans on taking more officials, this can still be fluid. Still hoping for this final piece to a lockdown backfield in Ann Arbor. Go Blue, Yuri.

But Sam Webb tweeted that Brionte Dunn has said where he's visiting this weekend. It's behind a pay wall so I can't see if it's us or them. Anyone else able to tell?..
