CU Spring Practices, 2022: A Look at the Buff offense
Show Notes

Well ... They’re back ... 

After giving Brad Geiger and Neill Langland some time off while the CU at the Game NIL Podcast campaign got underway, they are now back to join Stuart Whitehair as they give you a look at the CU roster on the offensive side of the ball for spring practices, 2022.

For the Buffs, the numbers last year on offense were abysmal: 

Rushing offense ... 126.2 yds/ game ... 98th nationally (out of 130 teams)
Passing offense … 131.2 yds/game … 126th nationally
Total offense … 257.4 yds/game … 129th nationally
Scoring offense … 18.8 pts/game … 121st nationally

There were some changes in the assistant coaching staff on the offensive side of the ball, with Mike Sanford in as the new offensive coordinator. Will these changes make a difference? 

Stuart, Brad, and Neil will take a unit-by-unit look at the roster, and hopefully answer some questions:

... Is the job of starting quarterback Brendon Lewis’ to lose? Or will JT Shrout and the underclassmen make it a two- or three-man race?; 
... Can the running back and wide receiver corps overcome the defections from the roster? Is there enough talent left in those rooms to make some noise in the Pac-12 this fall?; and
... Are there enough talented bodies along the offensive line, objectively one of the worst in recent memory, or will Buff fans have to hope the CU coaching staff will be digging into the Transfer Portal later this spring in search of immediate help? 

... Let’s find out ...
