Longest Football Camp

Longest Football Camp

CU Buffs Insider - August 18, 2017

Episode 4: Voice of the Buffs Mark Johnson and CUBuffs.com's Neill Woelk talk about one of the longest football camps in CU history. The Buffs are two weeks from game day and three weeks into camp. Steven Montez took it up a notch in practice this week. What does that mean? How comfortable should fans be with Sam Noyer as backup? Plus: Neill flipped the script and asked Mark what his big unknowns are there two weeks out. The two discuss how important is communication on defense, how big a boost was it to have Kyle Evans at practice again and how much of an emphasis are the Buffs taking on special teams? Which team has the advantage between CU and CSU with the Rams having a game a week before the Buffs? Mark also chats with preseason All-American soccer player Taylor Kornieck as that team opens its season today at Colorado State and will host three games Sunday at Prentup Field.

Episode 3 – The Buffs are about one-third of the way through Fall Camp. How is the whole no two-a-days thing going? Physical fatigue should be better but how will the Buffs handle any mental fatigue. Neill talks about the rapid growth of the defense as practices progress being a pleasant surprise in all areas. Several players are mentioned who will be able to make an impact this season. Defensive backs will be highlighted the next few days with Neill’s position preview coming out this weekend. Get a first glimpse into what the group is doing throughout camp. Another scrimmage is coming Saturday, what will the coaches be looking for? How much does it help Steven Montez to see these defensive backs every day? They also talk about Jenny Simpson and her performance at the World Championships. Her performance in the last 100-meters to finish second in perhaps the toughest 1,500-meter field in history was amazing. Jenny is cementing her legacy as one of the best middle distance runners in U.S. history. Mark also catches up with volleyball coach Jesse Mahoney and soccer coach Danny Sanchez to preview their seasons, which are rapidly approaching.
