Pac-12: Colorado prepares for summer workouts
Unlike many schools, Colorado did not conclude spring football drills with a major event. The Buffaloes did stage a Black vs. Gold game, but that scrimmage was the 14th of 15 practices.
The final day was devoted to a run-through of the format the coaches want to be implemented in player-run practices during the summer. Coach Mike MacIntyre and his staff appointed a leader for each position group, in addition to the six co-captains, and expect good results from the offseason work.
The Buffs still have a lot way to go to become competitive in the Pac-12. They went 4-8 overall in MacIntyre's first season, but that record included two wins over FCS schools - thanks to a scheduling change necessitated by flooding in Boulder. Colorado's only conference win was against California.<
Colorado opens the 2014 season Aug. 29 vs. Colorado State in Denver. The Buffs will visit UMass and host Hawaii in other nonconference games. They conclude the regular season Nov. 29 vs. Utah.
