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.<
