Brooks: Buffs Wrap Up Spring With An Eye On Summer

BOULDER - The University of Colorado football team on Monday concluded its second spring under its second-year coaching staff. But as they did last April, Mike MacIntyre and his assistants finished the final spring practice as observers, watching their players take charge in drills designed to carry them through May, June and July.

MacIntyre introduced the forward-thinking plan to the Buffaloes last spring, and the summer results “went real well,” he said. “When they came back (for August camp) we weren’t way behind. I think it was a big, big difference for us last year starting off early in the fall.”

Monday’s dress rehearsal for the summer’s player-led practices allowed MacIntyre and his position coaches “to show us exactly how they want it done so we can replicate it over and over again throughout the summer,” said senior linebacker Woodson Greer III.

“When you finish spring ball and go into the summer, you’ll forget stuff you learned in the spring. I mean, it’s a three-month span until the next time you put on pads. These (player-led) practices keep it all fresher in our minds.”...more
