Tuesday Grab Bag: Getting closer...

If you haven't already, can I recommend you check out this video of BSNDenver's @RyanKoenigsberg interviewing new CU defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt from Boulder Creek:

I gotta say, I'm real damn impressed by Ryan's professionalism here.  Leavitt's dousing of the prolific coif did nothing to dissuade Koenigsberg, and he started firing questions right away with nary an 'ummm.'  Fine work.


Today in the bag, I'm talking the lead up to game week, Steve Sarkisian, and the start of the season for the CU Women's Soccer Team.

Tuesday Grab Bag: A Scrimmage Snoozer

It's freshman move-in week here in Boulder, and I'm ready to get the fuck out of town.  Just so happens, however, that my day job has other ideas.  Phrases like 'attendance is mandatory,' and 'bad traffic is no excuse' were thrown around, so here I am... stuck in the Valley as the horde of dotting parents descends.

You'd think I'd be used to this garbage by now, having been a devoted Boulderite for over a decade, but it's just something you can never get used to -- the glut of cars, the picked-clean aisles of Target, the impossibility of finding an open table at a local restaurant.  Heaven help me, I love this town for 362 days a year, but this just ain't the week for me.

My advice to those who didn't realize, and were thinking of driving up to town over the next few days: why not try Broomfield?


Speaking of freshman move-in, please consider this:
Remember: we are not a football school, we are not a basketball school.  We are a Cross County (and Skiing) school.  For his 20th year of dominance, at the onset of yet another national title campaign, we owe that man a statue.


Today in the bag, I'm talking Saturday's scrimmage, the Mayor's discussion on who was the best wide receiver in CU history, and the PGA Championship.

Tuesday Grab Bag: Embrace the Ascendancy

If you haven't noticed - and, damnit, you should've - there's a new voice behind the content at Former Boulder Daily Camera scribe Neill Woelk is back in Boulder as the new contributing editor at the school's site, and everyone in this fanbase is better off for it.  Not that the great B.G. Brooks, who retired this past year, wasn't getting the job done, mind you, just that Woelk's consistent, knowledgeable, incisive, and passionate voice had been sorely missed over the past five years.

Glad to have you back, Neill, and I look forward to all the great content you're about to put out!


Today in the bag, I'm talking the start of Fall Camp, a wrap-up of Pac-12 media days, and close of The Basketball Tournament.
