    With help from new head coach Wes Kindurys, the Buffaloes luck to add some depth (and possibly some starters) to their squad for the 2009 season.

    Total allowed - 15

    CB - Sam Pierce - B- overall - Coverage

    WR - Jeff McCoy - C+ overall - Balanced
    WR - Will Jackson - C+ overall - Balanced
    WR - Ray Marquardt - C+ overall - Balanced
    HB - Kevin Holmes - C+ overall - Balanced
    FS - Evan Dombrowski - C overall - Balanced

    QB - Josh Beck - C overall - Scrambler
    WR - Scott Pressley - C overall - Balanced
    C - Jerry Lucas - C overall - Balanced
    FS - John Wiggins - C overall - Coverage
    SS - Walter Cannon - C overall - Balanced
    CB - John Hunter - C overall - Balanced
    CB - Anthony Woods - C- overall - Coverage

    HB - Quentin Castille - Jr 85 overall

    Although we only signed one linemen on both sides of the ball, we as a program feel that we took the appropriate steps as far as filling in the gaps in our depth chart the best we could. Obviously, this next recruiting season that will be our main emphasis.

    We are happy with the guys we have coming in and a lot of them are going to get their shots at seeing the field. Most notably at the WR and defensive back positions, we need guys at both spots to not only be back ups and role players, but be ready to step on the field if someone goes down.

    To all recruits and transfers, thank you for choosing to be a buffalo and believing in my coaching staff and our program's philosophies.

    Late commit

    Boulder is BUZZING with news that #1 cornerback has decided to choose a team that will give him more playing time and the chance to be a leader early by picking Colorado over a more "prestigious" school such as Notre Dame..

    In Week 5, Norwalk, California's Sam Pierce had a very hard decision to make between Notre Dame and Colorado. Since he would not be receiving a scholarship from Notre Dame because of his poor test grades he thought on behalf of his parents' wallets and chose to become a Buff.

    But don't get confused, that's not the only reason. When Wes Kindurys visited his home two weekends ago and had dinner he asked Sam, and I quote "Sam, how do you feel, if you were to come to Colorado, about being next year's star free safety?"

    Rumor has it that Sam and his parents agreed upon Sam's future right then and there, but today was the official signing and clarification of your newest Buff.

    Position Changes


    Fr CB - Sam Pierce to FS
    So CB - Jonathan Hawkins to SS
    Jr CB - Jimmy Smith to SS

    Sr LOLB - Bryan Stengel to ROLB

    Sr RE - Jason Brace (last year's sack leader) to DT

    * Defensively we are trying to - #1 put speed on the field and #2 Put playmakers in positions to do just that, make plays.

    * Brace's move to DT was something we talked about for a long time..It is not only going to be a good move for now, but the future too. We have some young DE's that now have oppurtunities they didn't have before as far as developing into future "key" players and Brace was unselfish enough to do what was best for the team by filling that spot...The depth at DT is poor to say the least and if anyone is up for that type of season long battle I know it is him, and that is why guys look up to him.


    Fr(RS) LT - Bryce Givens to C
    So LT - Sione Tau to LG

    no problem adjusting!

    Among many improvements..

    Freshman Sam Pierce had the biggest rating jump when he improved from a 75overall FS to a 82 overall FS..

    If making the adjustment alone wasn't hard enough, Sam went up and beyond the expectations of our coaching staff and surprised us all. He is going to be a great asset to our team.

    Sam Pierce got the action started for Colorado by making the first hit of the day when he stopped Air Force's Savier Stephens at the line of scrimmage on Air Force's first play. With some doubt in their run game, Air Force decided to go to the air but the ball did not land in Falcon's hand - no, it landed in the hands of #23 Jalil Brown. Shortly after, with help from Derrell Scott and company the Buffaloes would have their first score of the day.

    Many key holding calls would keep the Falcons out of the end zone on their next possession, and they would have to settle for a field goal.

    In the 2nd quarter the Buffs were able to really pull away from Air Force with scores of 42 yards [Hawkins to Behrens], 47 yards [Hawkins to Smith], 1 yard [rush by Behrens], and 27 yards [rush by Scott] set up by a 22 yard interception return with one minute left in the half.

    Down 35 - 3 at the half, the Falcon's would come out with full intensity - as you could expect from a military institution. They were able to slow down Colorado's momentum by causing to key turnovers, an interception in the redzone and a forced fumble on a punt return. Air Force would take those miscues and turn them into a 3 points, only to be matched by a 44 yarder from Colorado's own Matthew DiLallo. But once again, Air Force would strike back on the very next offensive possession by scoring with a 67 yard pass from Jefferson to Fogler.

    The Buffaloes were able to keep the clock running with continous first downs from Colorado backs Darrell Scott, Kevin Moyd, and Jake Behrens through out the fourth quarter and this one would come to an end with a final score of: Colorado 48 Air Force 19

    This was game was truly a tale of two halves. In the first half great offense was displayed by both teams, and in the second half it was the defense who would rise to the occasion.

    1st HALF
    Colorado chose to kick off to their oponents to start the game, which proved to be valuable in the early going. The explosive Oregon offense were forced to punt the ball giving Colorado the oppurtunity to take control of the game and that is exactly what they would do. A 2 minute and 30 second drive powered by the Colorado run game would be capped off by a 4 yard rush by Darrell Scott for his first score of the night.

    Oregon would score within the first minute of their next possession with a 54 yard rush on a WR jet play by Jamere Holland.

    The Buffaloes did a great job converting turnovers into touchdowns in the first half: 1:33 in the 1Q - Interception by Sam Pierce >> :19 in the 1Q - 1 yard touchdown rush by Darrell Scott; 7:00 in the 2Q - interception by Jalil Brown >> 6:54 in the 2Q - 78 yard rush by Darrell Scott.

    At this point, things were looking real bad for Oregon but they hung in there and were able to get a field goal out of their next possession. 21 - 10.

    Before the half ended, Oregon would cut the score to 21-20 with a Masoli-Harper connection for 41 yards and a field goal to close the 1st half.

    2nd HALF
    On Colorado's first drive they would come to a halt with an interception by Oregon's very own, Marvin Johnson. Colorado was able to force a punt, but once again were intercepted on a great play where Willie Glasper was somehow able to jump a dig route in man to man coverage. This would leave Oregon with a short field, which proved to be absolutely KEY to the game result.

    Oregon came away from the great field possession with a field goal to take the lead, and would add another early in the fourth quarter to go up 5. 26-21 Oregon.

    In the last six minutes, some absolutely great football was played. Colorado showed confidence in their defense by punting the ball on 3rd and long; DiLallo would pin Oregon inside the 20 with a 66 yard punt.

    Oregon would then be held to a three and out and forced to punt. With 3:43 left on the clock the Oregon defense would surely be tested.

    early on in the drive Colorado took advantage of man defense to convert on 3rd and 11; Hawkins to Smith for 17 yards.​

    A fantastic game for both groups tonight, it was big stage for both teams and they both had their moments during this battle. Both teams fought hard and put on a great show for the fans at

    Coach Kindurys had this to say when we met up with him later in the week -

    "That is an extremely hard loss for us to handle. It is really hard to swallow. I mean, we went to the #5 team's house and took it to them for 28 minutes. It's that simple, we didn't get some of the breaks we wish we would've, but that's football.

    We will bounce back, we are going to be overmatched all season long so I guess we just gotta get used to it. We are going to see a real tough conference opponent in Missouri who we have A LOT of respect for after their great 2008 season, it'll be interesting how their gameplay and personel compare (with Oregon's).

    Where do we go from here? We have to mentally prepare ourselves for the next game. I've had losses like this in the past and they can do one of two things for a team: kill it or build it. We want to build a team. We want to be conference champs."

    Colorado Key Players:

    Darrell Scott (S0) - 20 carries for 147 yards (long of 78), 3 TDs - 3 rec for 23 yards

    Week 3 - BYE

    EA Sports World was able to catch up with MLB Jeff Smart in between drills at Colorado's Tuesday night practice, and this is what he had to say.​

    Q - Coming off last weeks loss, what are the Buffs doing to prepare for FSU?

    A - Well, as a defense we are working on eliminating the big play. Right now, our opponents have only been able to come away with field goals from their five trips into our redzone. We pride ourselves on that, but on the flip also means we are giving up big plays.

    If we can stop the big plays we will force the opposing team's offense into running sets/plays they aren't comfortable with.

    Q - Good info there Jeff! Now, you are Colorado's star player, that means you make all the adjustments and audibles right? And if so, what tips you off whether it is a run or pass and/or tells you to make a play call change?

    A - Yes, you are right there. I let the linebackers and D-line know what they are doing, and Sam talks to the defensive backs. On your second question, I don't know, I guess I just kinda get a feel for what the offense likes to do or...if our defense is successful that particular day..what the offense is being FORCED to do.

    - Thanks for time Jeff!

    After the practice, EA Sports World was also able to ask Coach Kindurys a few things.​

    Q - Coach, Jeff said your defense is working on eliminating the "big" play. What is the offense working on?

    A - Our offense is working on spreading ball around to different receivers and trying to get everyone involved a little more with the offense. On top of that, we are going back through the play book and working on our run game to make sure everyone knows their blocking assignments. There were a few times last week when people missed their assignments and it cost us. If we can be even more successful with our running game it will really start to open up the play action, etc.

    Q - Will there be any changes offensively or defensively?

    A - As of right now, no. But we are willing to try guys out in certain places. We are possibly looking at finding a different playbook as well, but we must first as a team decide if we are willing to put extra effort in to learn it.

    Q - What will be the keys to beating Florida State next week?

    A - Well, offensively we need to do what we do best and run the ball. They had 3 sacks and 5 interceptions in their loss to BC, why pass it?! Defensively, we must do our best to keep the ball away from WR Preston Parker while containing halfbacks Jermaine Thomas and Tavaras Pressley. If we can stop them; we have stopped Florida Stae.

    - Thanks coach.

    Game Of The Year?!

    Scoring Summary

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5 Column 6 Column 7
    1 2 3 4 OT FINAL
    CU 7 10 11 21 6 55
    FSU 14 7 7 21 0 49

    1st Quarter

    Until late in the game, it seemed as if no defense was played this Saturday afternoon as both teams would score their season highs in this shootout. Both teams were forced to punt their first possessions, but Florida State would ultimately start the action with a 53 yard rush for a TD by running back Jermaine Thomas. Colorado, on the other hand, showed no signs of panic as they marched down the field with a methodical 12 play drive that would end in a 18 yard TD rush by Darrell Scott. Late in the 1st quarter, Jermaine Thomas would once again “break a big one” when he waltzed into the end zone on a 36 yard scamper.
    Florida State 14 Colorado 7

    2nd Quarter

    Colorado’s ensuing possession was a one man show, Darrell Scott started the drive with an 11 yard rush and ended it with a 59 yard reception from quarterback Cody Hawkins. With things tied up and receiving the ball at half, Colorado was relying heavily on their defense to come up with a big stop to sway the momentum, but it seemed that is was just Florida States’ night as back up half back Thomas Pressley would also get a taste of the end zone due to a 22 yard run.
    Florida State 21 Colorado 14

    On Colorado’s next possession, Coach Kindurys would opt to go for the it on 4th and 2 inside the five yard line. Play action would be the call, and Florida State’s Jamar Jackson saw it all the way as he crushed Cody Hawkins into the ground and forced the ball loose (Everette Brown would recover for FSU). Later, Florida State was unable to capitalize on the situation and were forced to punt, leaving Colorado time to put 3 on the board and go into the locker room down by 4.
    Florida State 21 Colorado 17

    3rd Quarter

    Just three minutes into the half, Colorado was put into a similar position as earlier in the game (4th and 2), but decided to play it smart and go with the guaranteed 3 points. Colorado’s defense were able to force a 3-and-out, but the offense would have to punt the ball back after only one first down.

    Florida State lived up to the story of the game (quick scores) by scoring a 59 yard catch-and-run by Sophomore Bert Reid (first of three scores on the night). Less than twenty seconds later, Colorado showed that they had fire power too and were not scared to attack Bobby Bowden’s secondary when Cody Hawkins and Josh Smith hooked up for a 52 yard connection (2 point conversion good on a Darrell Scott rush).
    Florida State 28 Colorado 28

    4th Quarter

    On third down, the buffalos had their chance to hold Florida State to just three points, but the coverage would break down and Bert Reed would score on a 10 yard pass from Christian Ponder. On the ensuing kickoff, doubts in Colorado’s return game were erased when senior and captain cornerback Chapelle Brown raced to the house with help from a few blocks and blown assignments; 92 yard TD return.
    Florida State 35 Colorado 35

    With the running game being so dominate, the Seminoles were able to catch the secondary off guard with plays of 22 yards, 33 yards, and another Reed touchdown for 9 yards. With around five minutes left, the Buffalos were in no hurry and stuck to their guns and drove the ball down the field to tie the game once again on a 1 yard plunge by fullback Jake Behrens.
    Florida State 42 Colorado 42

    It looked as if Coach Kindurys’ aggressive decision would now come back to haunt him as it seemed clear Florida State would be the last team with the ball which is never good in a shootout. BUT, out of nowhere Christian Ponder, who had been on point the whole game, was intercepted and returned for a touchdown by the star freshman Sam Pierce to give what looked like a victory for the Buffalos in a hard fought battle. But the persistent Seminoles’ hopes were kept alive on an incredible 22 yard completion to no other than Bert Reed. With less than a minute, the Seminole passing attack would catch fire as they through spears down the field until Preston Parker ultimately hauled in the game tying 34 yard touchdown reception with 29 seconds left.

    One thing all of the greatest college football games have in common is a great finish, and this game certainly lived up to that hype. Both teams would score 21 points in dramatic fashion to send this game into a well deserved overtime.
    Florida State 49 Colorado 49


    Bobby Bowden chose to put his offense on the field while they were still hot, but Sam Pierce apparently had had enough of the mockery the Seminoles were making of his defense when he picked off Christian Ponder for the second time in the game.

    Colorado would go to work by keeping the ball on the ground and in the hands of Darrell Scott (7 yards, 4 yards, and 6 yards). Fullback Jake Behrens would then barrel his way to a 7 yard touchdown to put the Colorado Buffalos on top for once and for all!
    Final – Colorado 55 Florida State 49


    We were able to catch up with Coach Kindurys and Sam Pierce as they recovered from “Gatorade showers”.​

    Media – “Coach, congratulations on the incredible win tonight. Describe your feelings for us.”

    Coach Kindurys – “Wow! It’s an amazing feeling. The way our kids were able to handle adversity tonight was just incredible. For example, Jake Behrens showed me just how much heart he had when he trucked over defender after defender on that last run. I can’t start to describe how proud of him right now.

    Media – “Sam, without your interceptions, FSU would’ve rolled out of here with a win tonight wouldn’t you say?”

    Sam Pierce – “No, I wouldn’t say that. This group has an edge to them - we would’ve figured out a way to make it happen, but they did help (laughter).

    Conference Opener

    Week 5
    #10 Oklahoma (1-1) @ Colorado (2-1)

    Colorado opens up conference play against Big 12 South's Oklahoma Sooners. Oklahoma began the season with hopes of getting to the national championship, but their chances were greatly decreased by a 14 point loss to Miami. On the other hand, the Sooners our picking up momentum after a 49-7 rout of the FCS NW team and believe they can build on that momentum leading into week 5.

    Oklahoma is in a do-or-die situation here, as they badly need a win. They can not afford a loss to Colorado, especially with #3 Texas coming to town the very next week. Oklahoma coaches, fans, and players know it is time to rise to the occasion.

    Unfortunately for Oklahoma, Colorado has proven that they will not go down without a fight. The Buffaloes are not going to be suprised by the level of talent Oklahoma will drop off at Folsom Field since they have already battled with teams such as #4 Oregon (L 21-26) and a very talented/under rated Florida State squad (W 55-49 OT).

    Not only that, but Colorado is currently undefeated at home (2-0). Things are really starting to come together for the Buffaloes this season, and they aren't ready to stop now. If they can get past just one more hump, the season will be relatively "smooth sailin'" up until the week 9 and 10 match ups against #5 Texas Tech and #6 Missouri.​

    Who will rise to the occasion?
    Will Colorado continue to suprise the experts?
    Will Oklahoma get things together and pursue the big game?

    Depth Chart Changes:
    1. Junior Demetrius Sumler will be moving ahead of Senior Kevin Moyd this week for the back up halfback position. Moyd will still have kick return duties.
    - "Right now, Moyd is NOT proposing a threat to the defense when he comes in the game so it's hard for us to accomplish what we need to out there."

    2. Sophomore Lagrone Shields will be starting LE for Senior Drew Hudgins. Hudgins will still be getting subbed in.
    - "Lagrone has been patiently waiting for his chance, and I am giving it to him this week. He was outstanding coming out of high school, and we are
    looking forward to seeing what he can do with his athletic build."

    3. Senior Taj Kaynor will start at Defensive Tackle.
    - "Taj has been loyal to our program, and to be honest could play a solid amount of time just about anywhere else. We'll see what he can do against

    4. Freshman Ray Marquardt will be taking over the punt return area for Senior Chapell Brown.
    - "We haven't got much production from the punt return game, and that is key when it comes down to the stretch. We are looking for someone to
    give us a solid 10 yards or more. We will keep shuffling guys around until we find that, Ray could be the guy."

    5. Junior RT will be moved to LT, Sophomore Matthew Bahr will be starting over Jr Nate Solder.
    - "Well first off, we wanted to address some issues we've been having with the pass rush, so that is why we are moving our best OT to the left
    side; Hawkins' blind side. And, while we were on that topic of discussion we thought of the possibility of starting Bahr this week; his blocking
    skills are starting to develop and he brings a little more size, we will see how this works out for us since he is quite a bit slower than Nate."

    Colorado Players To Watch:

    #7 Jr QB Cody Hawkins - 238 QB Rating, 32 of 42 for 660 yards, 5 TDs, 2 INTs; *has only been sacked once
    #2 So HB Darrell Scott - 78 carries for 438 yards, 6 TDs (long of 77 yards); *rushed for 1185 yards as a freshman, also an all american
    #1 Jr WR Josh Smith - 11 receptions for 347 yards, 2 TDs (long of 52), 0 drops; *yards per reception have doubled from last year so far

    #45 Sr MLB Jeff Smart - 23 tackles (3 TFL), 1 FF; *currently tied for second in the Big 12 for tackles
    #28 Fr FS Sam Pierce - 8 tackles (1 TFL), 3 INTs (1 TD), 4 deflections; *#1 cornerback coming out of high school

    From start to finish, Colorado was in control and were able to build on their success. There were many great performances on both sides of the ball for the Buffalos which builds a lot of trust between players. I say trust because that is something the Colorado Buffalos will need these next five weeks since Darrell Scott will be sitting out with a dislocated elbow.

    1st Half
    The Sooners defense came out very aggressive and Cody Hawkins was able to capitalize on it by hitting the open spots in which the blitzers were leaving behind. After that, the Buffalos settled into their groove until they were able to set up the play action which lead to a 20 yard reception to Kendrick Celestine. Later in the drive, backup halfback Demetrius Sumler would reach the end zone on a 10 yard run - only to be called back because of a late holding call. The Buffalos would settle for a field goal.

    On OU's first possesion they would have to punt the ball after only five plays. The Buffalos chances of getting to the endzone were kept alive on a 3rd and long run by wide receiver Josh Smith, but they would once again be held to three points.

    On Oklahoma's second drive they would move the ball down the field with big passing plays and were able to cut the lead to three points. Chapelle Brown would shortly after nullify the Sooners' hard work by return the kickoff 96 yards and into the endzone; his second of the season and second game in a row.

    Oklahoma stayed calm and composed and would finally reach the endzone on a 13 yard pass from Sam Bradford to Jameel Owens. Up by three, the Buffalos looked to run down the rest of the clock and add a score before half time to go up six. Unfortunately, a big hit by cornerback Brian Jackson would jar the ball loose from Darrell Scott while inside the thirty yard line. With a minute left in the half, and looking to make a big play; Sam Bradford made a big mistake when he tested Sam Pierce's range. The ball would be intercepted and brought back for a touchdown to put the Buffalos up ten just like they wanted.
    Colorado 20 Oklahoma 10

    2nd Half
    Oklahoma came out looking like they were patient and able to adapt to what happened in the first half, but Sam Bradford clearly looked rattled as he would throw another ball that would ultimately land in the hands of Sam Pierce.

    From here on, the game was in complete and total control of Coach Kindurys' crew. Sam Pierce would pick off another ball (3 on the day), the D-line blew up everything and anything, and Cody Hawkins was able to find Smith and McKnight for big touchdown receptions.

    Darrell Scott would leave the game after what looked like a cheap hit with a minute thirty left to play in the third quarter. The backups were able to get in the about 4 minutes left and the did a good job of taking care of the ball and containing the Oklahoma's offense while they were in. The Buffalos played through adversity tonight, and showed that hard work beats talent - when talent doesn't work hard.

    *first game of the season in which CU has not scored a rushing TD & Darrell Scott didn't rush for over a 100 yards.
    *as a team, Colorado's defense had 12 TFL, 1 sack, 3 INTs, and 2 deflections; they gave up only 87 yards on 32 carries.

    1 2 3 4 OT FINAL
    CU 14 10 7 7 0 38
    BAY 0 0 2 14 0 16

    Although the score doesn’t show it, Baylor put up a good fight in the first half. They actually tore through Colorado’s defense with ease – that is, until they got to the redzone. On two different occasions Colorado would be able to take away valuable points from Baylor – 1. Baylor running back Jay Finley would be tackled in the backfield by Sam Pierce on 4th and inches. 2. A Chapelle Brown interception in the back of the endzone.

    These were the plays that were able to keep the Buffalo defense alive, other than that it was a less than spectacular night for them. The Baylor quarterback was able to complete 28 of 35 passes for 326 yards.

    In the second quarter, Sumler would suffer an injury that will keep him on the sidelines with Darrell Scott for the next 3 weeks. Coach Kindurys made the decision to “un”-redshirt Freshman Kevin Holmes so he could get back up minutes since he will likely be a big part in our offense for the next few weeks.

    1st Half
    The real action would get started at the end of a missed kick on Baylor’s second drive that Ray Marquardt got enough guts to carry out of the end zone and down to the 45 yard line. Two plays later, Demetrius Sumler would break one tackle and go on a run of 36 yards until he was finally tackled inside the five. Fullback Jake Behrens would score on a 1 yard plunge.
    Colorado 7 Baylor 0

    Baylor would have to punt again after a sack on Sophomore QB Robert Griffin by star outside linebacker Shaun Mohler. Shortly after, Cody Hawkins and Josh Smith would hook up once again for a touchdown that would put the Buffs up two scores.
    Colorado 14 Baylor 0

    Baylor’s next drive would come to a stop due to a fumble on the second play. The Buffaloes were able to put together a solid drive but were only able to come away with a field goal
    Colorado 17 Baylor 0

    With a little momentum from the defense forcing Colorado to kick a field goal, the Baylor Bear’s looked determined to finally put together a good drive and that is exactly what they did. Lead by quarterback Robert Griffen the Bears marched down the field and into Buffalo territory. With the ball on the one yard line after a pass interference call on a Sam Pierce interception the Bears seemed sure they would get into the endzone, but 4 plays later Sam Pierce would throw up the cross bones to the disappointed fans at Floyd Casey Stadium.

    Big play after big play, the Buffaloes moved the ball down the field and capped off the drive with a 32 yard touchdown run by Kevin Moyd.
    Colorado 24 Baylor 0

    Like most teams, the Bears would get desperate and try to throw to the endzone, but Sam Pierce was all over it to intercept his 7th pick of the season.

    2nd Half
    In the second half, things started to get ugly for Colorado. It seemed as if the players felt like they were on top of the world with the last two big wins and being able to beat up on a weaker opponent as they started slacking in all facets of the game.

    After forcing a 3 and out on the Buffaloes’ first drive, Baylor looked to stay patient and put some points on the board. On another amazing drive by Robert Griffin, things looked as if they were going uphill for the Bears but Chapelle Brown was able to bail out the defense with a brilliant leaping interception. Trying to make something out of nothing, Brown ultimately would put Colorado’s offense in terrible field position at the 5 yard line.

    Trying to get out of a bad situation, the Buffaloes came up with a big play from #1 wide receiver Josh Smith who raced down the field to the 20 yard line only to have to come back because of a hold call. On the next play, the Baylor secondary was able to hold up Cody Hawkins’ initial reads for just long enough for someone to come in and make the sack in the endzone.

    After the safety, Baylor did their best to make a game out of it. Even after scoring two 4th quarter touchdowns, the Colorado defense proved to be too strong for Baylor and they would fall to 0-6.
    Final - Colorado 38 Baylor 16

    Press Conference after the game with Coach Kindurys –

    “I thought our guys played a great fourteen minutes today.

    But that’s it. There were some guys who kept going; it wasn’t all of them. But…this is a team, when one person or five people mess up it comes back to all of us. I was absolutely disgusted in how we took care of things in the second half.

    Hats off to Baylor though, they put up a great fight and they proved to everyone that you can’t let up at any point during a football game.

    We are going to run, run, run at practice. They already know that. If we want to be the best, and no disrespect to Baylor, but we need to put a 0 up on teams like that when we have them in the position in which we did.”

    From Colorado’s very first score and on, you just got that feeling that a lot of points would be scored tonight. With starting half backs Darrell Scott and Demetrius Sumler sidelined, Colorado broke out their spread package for the first time that they have been secretly working on. With that being said, Coach Kindurys decided to start Sophomore QB Tyler Hansen instead of Senior Cody Hawkins. This would also spare Hawkins from an injuries that could sideline him for the big games in weeks 9 and 10.

    1st Half
    On the very first play of the game, Marquez Herrod would stop Kansas States’ Josh Freeman in his tracks on a designed quarterback run for a six yard loss. Clearly rattled, the next two passes would be off the mark and the Wildcats would have to punt the ball.

    Ray Marquardt got the team fired up with a nice return that gave the Buffaloes good field position to start their first drive. Kevin Moyd, starting his first game at halfback, would do all the work for the Buffaloes here: 3 yard rush, 7 yard rush, 27 yard rush, and was able to cap it off with an 8 yard reception for a touchdown.
    Colorado 7 Kansas State 0

    Kansas State would answer back on the first play of their next drive with an 80 yard catch and run for a touchdown by the explosive Senior wide receiver Attrail Snipes.
    Colorado 7 Kansas State 7

    On Colorado’s ensuing possession, Kevin Moyd would come up big again on a 66 yard touchdown reception. The Buffaloes clearly had caught the Wildcat defense off guard with this surprise spread attack; it was nothing similar to what they had been practicing against all week.
    Colorado 14 Kansas State 7

    Although, the Kansas State offense continued to go stride for stride with the Buffaloes and scored again on a 21 yard rush by Senior halfback Keithen Valentine.
    Colorado 14 Kansas State 14

    Colorado finished up the first quarter by forcing punts out of the Kansas State offense, and scores from wide receivers Josh Smith (65 yard rush) and Scotty McKnight (25 yard reception).
    Colorado 28 Kansas State 14

    Kansas State was able to score early on in the second quarter from another touchdown reception by Attrail Snipes (22 yards), but they still had no answer on defense for the Buffaloes spread attack. Josh Smith would score on a 53 yard reception, and again on a 70 yard reception that would be called back on a holding call but all in all would leave doubt in the minds of the Kansas State defenders.

    Kansas State was finally able to come up with a turnover on an overthrown ball by Hansen, but they were only able to translate that into three points. Where, Colorado was able to turn a forced fumble with :50 seconds left in the half into another Josh Smith touchdown (77 yard reception).
    Colorado 42 Kansas State 24

    2nd Half
    The second half was more of the same story, Kansas State was unable to keep up with Colorado’s offense while at the same time the Buffaloes defense began to step up their game and shut out the Wildcats in the third quarter.
    All the subs got in at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Senior quarterback Nick Nelson went 2/2 for 27 yards, and Freshman halfback Kevin Holmes kept the clock running with seven carries. The Buffalo second team defense gave up a score in the early goings of the fourth quarter, but locked it for the remainder of the game to seal the victory for Colorado!
    Final - Colorado 63 Kansas State 31

    Press Conference after the game with Coach Kindurys –

    “We decided to throw our spread unit out onto the field because frankly we don’t have the personnel for the heavy running attack we used earlier in the year, and we noticed that we have the guys we need to run the spread successfully for the time being.

    We will continue to use this offense until teams adjust or we start having problems, right now I like how things are going. Tyler Hansen did a great job in his first start of the season, he made a few bad reads and bad throws but that was expected.

    Will we be running this offense when Darrell Scott gets back? I’m not sure about that just yet, we will worry about that when it comes time to. Right now, Darrell is hurt and we can’t worry about him, we need to worry about the next game.”

    *This write up will be shorter because I exited the game on accident.

    Wow, this spread stuff is working great for the Buffaloes! Their last two games were basically over by half time, neither teams could find an answer to the offense.

    In the first quarter, Colorado would score two unanswered touchdowns with Tyler Hansen strikes to McKnight (27 yards) and Simas (56 yards). The Jayhawks would finally score on a 3rd and short play where they would have to improvise and were finally able to find a man streaking down the sideline. But once again, Chapelle Brown returned the kickoff for the score (95 yard return).
    Kansas hung their heads early, and the 21-7 lead went from a close game to a blowout real fast. 42 – 7 and with all of the backups in, the Kansas Jayhawks were finally able to get some more points with a 42 yard field goal by Bransletter, but showing no sympathy, Chapelle Brown returned another kickoff for a touchdown (88 yard return).
    This game is over at the half 49 – 10.

    Kansas was able to get things going a little with Colorado’s second team defense on the field, but the Buffaloes would still outscore them by 2 points in the second half.

    The young guns for Colorado really stepped up to the plate, accounting for 6 TDs: Freshman HB Kevin Holmes (3 TD rush), Freshman WR Will Jackson (1 TD reception), Sophomore WR Markques Simas (1 TD reception), JUCO Transfer CB John Hunter (1 INT-TD return) The future looks bright for Colorado; they won’t stop until they win it all!
    Final Colorado 72 - 31

    Press Conference after the game with Coach Kindurys –

    “We played a great game tonight. We got all of the younger guys reps early on, Freshman Kevin Holmes really impressed wasn't that he scored 3 times; it was just how he did it. Did you see that run where he jumped over the guy?!

    On a more serious note, we have our first real test tomorrow to see if this spread stuff is legit when we play Texas Tech. They played Missouri tonight so it will give us a good chance to check both of them out during film time.

    Demetrius Sumler and Darrell Scott are starting to get healthy, we don't know what we are going to just yet to mix them back in. They are great players and we really don't want to waste their talent; we may have to find a playbook that gives us some power run and spread."

    * I understand I broke the scoring limit, and I am deeply sorry for that. Basically what put me over was a 96 yard INT return by one of my 4th string corner. I couldn't just run out of bounds, no fourth string player would ever give up that oppurtunity. With that being said, I will take full responsibility for my actions seeing as I could've prevented that TD. On the other hand, my stats will show the truth the score. I had 2 kick returns for TDs, 1 INT return for TD. As far as subs go: 2nd quarter - backup halfback (originally 4th string Freshman) he ran for 100+, backup wideouts, I was using my backup QB to start with. 1st team defense still in. half way through 3rd quarter - 2nd team offense and 2nd team defense. Not to mention, they had a ton of 3 and outs in the first half.

    I wasn't trying to go over, I did realize the score the entire game, I took appropriate action to respect the rules. Sorry.

    Tonight’s game definitely started out on the WRONG foot. Colorado went into the game very confident, not cocky, but they felt like the were executing the spread very well. The Buffaloes were unable to get anything going early on, and on the other side Texas Tech was destroying the secondary. The game started out 10 to 0 in favor of the Red Raiders until a kickoff return by Chapelle Brown sparked the Buffaloes full of energy. On Texas Tech’s next drive Sam Pierce would come up with an interception, and on the very next play Tyler Hansen went deep to Josh Smith to put the Buffaloes inside the 20 yard line. From there, the Buffaloes would score 34 unanswered points to put this game out of reach. Things weren’t exactly clicking for the offense tonight, the Buffaloes simply didn’t execute as planned and will need to practice a little extra before they face the Tigers of Mizzou.

    1st Half
    Texas Tech chose to receive to start off the game and rightfully so, the Red Raiders’ quarterback Stefan Loucks (replacing injured Taylor Potts who is out for 7 weeks) was hitting his spots and ultimately connected with Detron Lewis for the score.
    Texas Tech 7 Colorado 0

    Pressure and bad decisions by Tyler Hansen resulted in a punt for the Buffaloes on their first drive. The Red Raiders would take the field once again and nickel and dime their way to the redzone. With the opportunity to put Colorado in a rut, Texas Tech opted to go for it instead of kick a field goal on 4th and 1 Stefan Loucks called option left, but Sam Pierce saw it all the way and made the one on one tackle to spare the Buffaloes another score, while at the same time boosting their red zone defensive percentage.

    The Buffaloes would go three and out their next two possessions and were forced to punt the ball, but were able to keep the game close on defense which was the key.

    At the beginning of the second quarter, the Red Raiders were in good position to go up 14 – 0 but the Buffaloes were able to force three straight incompletions (two defensive line knock downs).
    Texas Tech 10 Colorado 0

    At this point, Colorado fans were beginning to get worried and the coaching staff knew that they needed to get something going ASAP. BUT, they didn’t know they would get on the board as fast as they did; Senior cornerback Chapelle Brown returned the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for the score to put Colorado back in the game. “It was truly amazing and a team effort,” Said Brown, “I had perfect blocks; I just ran.” After that, things turned around real quick, Sam Pierce picked off a Loucks pass intended for Detron Lewis to give the offense a chance to get on top. On the very next play, Colorado had the opportunity and went big to Josh Smith (47 yard reception from Tyler Hansen) to put Colorado inside the 20 yard line. The Buffaloes would only be able to come up with a field goal, but the momentum had completely shifted and you had that feel that Colorado would come out on top.
    Texas Tech 10 Colorado 10

    The Buffaloes would really turn up the heat on defense for the remainder of the half causing three sacks and another interception by Sam Pierce. On offense, the Buffaloes seem to capitalize on every opportunity, and would kick a field goal at the end of the half to go up by seventeen.
    Colorado 27 Texas Tech 10

    2nd Half
    The second half was much of the same, but even more spectacular. Chapelle Brown returned the opening kick an amazing 108 yards (NCAA record), Matthew Dilallo had a 76 yard punt that would be down on the inch yard line, and Sam Pierce would come up with his third interception of the night just two plays later on a halfback screen which he return 5 yards for the score.
    It was a great football game for Colorado and a wakeup call at the same time. Star wide receiver Josh Smith would sit out most of the second half (coach’s decision) because of a broken toe. The Buffaloes look to be at 100% strength for the Missouri game next week with Darrell Scott back, and time for Smith to heal is toe.

    Final - Colorado 54 Texas Tech 19

    Press Conference after the game with Coach Kindurys –

    “All in all, I feel good about the game. Tyler Hansen played his part, I was also able to get Cody Hawkins mixed in a lot to prepare for next week. I’m not sure what we are going to do about that situation yet, it will mostly likely be a game day decision. We are also looking at having Hansen as our shotgun guy and Hawkins as our under center guy.”

    “I am so impressed with Chapelle Brown, he is getting really good blocking out there, but it still takes something extra to take it to the house. How many is that now? SIX?!?!
    Ray Marquardt is doing a fabulous job in the punt return game as well, I think we figuring out our return game problem we were having early!”

    “Matthew Dilallo is just doing what he’s been doing all year, he gets a good foot on the ball and we are really going to miss that next year. That punt of his will be talked about for years, and it really helped out too since it was converted into a defensive touchdown.”

    “Sam Pierce…he’s a Freshman, but he doesn’t play like it. I can speak for him, but I think he believes in what we have been telling him and he is doing more than his fair share for this defense. If I am not mistaken this is his second game with three interceptions, that’s not easy to do. He really sparks the entire team when he can take a possession away from the offense.”

    “Josh Smith is fine, he said he thinks he broke his toe, but he looked fine when he was in there at the beginning of the third quarter. I decided to sit him for the rest of the game to save him for Mizzou. Darrell Scott is going to be back as well, it is going to be a great addition! We are hoping to go into that game with a lot of different options and be very balanced. We are going to be at 100% so there will be no excuse for not coming out of that game with a ‘W’. I think Missouri is underestimating us, I think they have a free pass to the conference championship and national champion, but that is far from the truth. We have proven to be a pain in the ass, and we want to end this season with nothing less than the title of ‘champion’. This game will ultimately decide the winner of the Big 12 North and we are more than prepared; I hope they bring their A game!!”

    After signing their fourth recruit of the season, Colorado is hanging with the big dogs! The Buffaloes are currently ranked 4th among all schools, but as we all know now is not the time to celebrate. We must wait until post season to see how much more talent we can sign, and then four years after that to see if that talent even pays off.

    Last year's recruiting class is already stepping up big for Colorado, it is going to be hard to top what they have achieved as Freshman. Hopefully we can put together another good group of kids, and turn this program into one of the better teams around in the next few years!!

    HB - Kevin Holmes - 83 overall - Taken off :RS: week 6 when Scott and Sumler got hurt - rushed for 137 yards and 3 TDs on 13 carries against Kansas

    FS - Evan Dombrowski - 82 overall - Plays backup FS/special teams - 16 tackles (1 TFL)

    QB - Josh Beck - 75 overall - :RS:, will be converted to TE next season. Call me crazy!

    It looks like the Missouri Tigers will be in the Big 12 Championship for the second straight year as they are able to hold off Colorado for just long enough. The Tigers shut down the Colorado spread attack with the 3-4 defense, and went into the locker room up 21-0. Coach Kindurys told his group to settle down, get some points on the board, and they’d go from there. The defense stepped their game up big time, and a Sam Pierce interception would give the Buffaloes new life. The Buffaloes scored 21 unanswered points and tied the game on a 87 yard punt return for a touchdown by no other than Chapelle Brown. Folsom Field was going completely insane, but Mizzou was able to quiet them with a 71 yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin on the first play of their next possession.

    1st Half
    Missouri won the toss and opted to kick off to start the game. The Tigers were able to force a punt quickly out of Colorado, and began to move the ball down the field until their drive was stopped by an interception Sophomore strong safety Travis Sandersfeld. The Buffaloes would punt again after just three plays leading to an 11 play drive by Missouri that would be finished with a 2 yard touchdown rush by Derrick Washington.
    Missouri 7 Colorado 0

    With help from Darrell Scott, the Buffaloes were able to get into scoring position, but a fumbled pitch would be recovered by Missouri. On another long drive, they would score a touchdown, this time an 18 yard pass from Blaine Gabbert to Jared Perry.

    Another punt and a good return would set the Tigers up to score again with only 30 seconds left in the half. The Buffaloes would set up for a field goal, but Matthew Dilallo came up just short.
    Missouri 21 Colorado 0

    2nd Half
    During half time, Coach Kindurys was able to convince his players that there was still a chance. They came out fired up, but it was much of the same story – they couldn’t get it going on offense. Mizzou would play it safe, Colorado would be stuffed on a 4th down conversion, but Dilallo was able to connect on a 59 yard field goal to get SOME points up on the score board.
    Missouri 21 Colorado 3

    At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Missouri converted a 31 yard field goal by Jake Harry and the deficit would be back 21 points.
    Missouri 24 Colorado 3

    On Colorado’s next drive, Tyler Hansen and Darrell Scott would hook up for a 45 yard reception that would put the Buffaloes inside the 15 yard line. They would later score on a 4 yard rush by fullback Jake Behrens. A big play could turn the game around now, but the Colorado players were also looking to earn their respect back from the Tigers.
    Missouri 24 Colorado 10

    With 5:35 remaining, Missouri needed a good drive to run some clock off, but they decided to test soon to be Thorpe Award winner Sam Pierce by going deep – interception would be the result, and the light at the end of the tunnel was beginning to get a little brighter for the Buffaloes.

    After Cody Hawkins was sacked for a 7 yard loss, the Buffaloes would be in a 3rd and 15 situation with less than 4 minutes left. Tyler Hansen threw it to Josh Smith, and somehow he was able to come up with the ball in between two defenders! They then went no huddle and picked up 11 yards on a pass to the flats to halfback Kevin Moyd. Eventually they would score on a quarterback draw by Cody Hawkins. Now there is definitely a chance, two minutes left in the game.
    Missouri 24 Colorado 17

    The Buffaloes decided to go with their defense and kicked the ball off deep. After a seven yard rush by Derrick Washington the game looked to be pretty much over with one more first down, but Colorado’s true character would show after two big stops in the backfield. It looked like the punt unit was jogging onto the field, and as Senior cornerback Chapelle Brown was coming off to the sideline Coach Kindurys grabbed him by the helmet and told him to go back out there and make a play. Freshman Ray Marquardt was barely able to sprint off the field to avoid a 12th man penalty as the ball was being booted into the air. It was kicked right on the left sideline to the 10 yard line. Brown would go left, go right, spin, break a tackle make a couple cuts to the middle the field and it would be nothing but green grass from there. A 87 yard punt return for touchdown!! Chapelle Brown is once again able to keep this Colorado team alive with his incredible return skills!!
    Missouri 24 Colorado 24

    With about a minute left, Missouri would waste absolutely no time and go big to who other than Jeremy Maclin. The Junior cornerback Jalil Brown would slip on the play, and Maclin was able to cut under and catch the ball and ultimately 25 to 30 yards to put Missouri back on top!!
    Missouri 31 Colorado 24

    With no timeouts, Colorado had to get real lucky. Unfortunately, they got real UNLUCKY. A lot of confusion, no one knew where to line up or what to do which lead to the clock getting run down from 44 seconds to their final shot at the end zone, which wouldn’t have mattered anyway because of a holding call. Missouri runs off with the win, and are most likely a lock for the Big 12 North! Congratulations Mizzou!

    Missouri 31 Colorado 24

    Press Conference after the game with Coach Kindurys –

    “Hats off to Missouri, they mixed things up on defense pretty well in that first half, and we weren’t able to get anything done. Missed opurtunities, and that fumbled pitch would really cost us. On the other hand, I am really proud of my guys for coming back like they did. Make no doubt about it, this is a championship caliber football team, and we will be one to look out for in the future.

    We return very experienced guys at offensive and defensive line. We return everyone at our skilled positions. Our greatest losses will be our star linebackers, cornerback Chapelle Brown, our two tightends, and our punter. On the flip side, we have some great kids coming in that can fill those spots, and I don’t think we will even skip a beat!

    We are going to finish out this season strong, and we hope to get a good bowl game where we can further prove our worth! Great game Mazz!
