    Colorado vs Missouri Football

    The best news Saturday for the Colorado football program came from one of its recruits.

    Darrell Scott, the No. 1-ranked tailback recruit in the nation, visited Saturday from California and didn't immediately run for the airport after watching Missouri soundly defeat the Buffs 55-10. In fact, Scott acknowledged CU is solidly in the lead to earn his signature on national signing day in the first week of February.

    A family tie is working to CU's advantage.

    Scott's uncle is CU true freshman wide receiver Josh Smith. The two played on the same team a year ago and Scott said he would like to be reunited with Smith.

    "Family comes first," Scott said. "It is a big deal. It's weird cause I really do want to play with him. Colorado has an advantage over everybody else with that."

    Scott said CU coaches told him he will have a good chance at earning the starting job at CU as a true freshman next season if chooses to play in Boulder. He said coaches have emphasized that he will have to work for that job.

    "I'm willing to work for anything," he said.

    Scott has four more official visits to make and said he might wait until signing day to announce his decision. He said he also could make a decision at the Army All-American game in January.

    He said he plans to visit Louisiana State and Florida for sure and will schedule two more visits in the near future. Scott was also impressed with Missouri on Saturday and referred to the Tigers as "a team of giants."

    Overall, Scott said he was impressed with Colorado, despite the way the Buffs played.

    "I'm coming in with an open mind, trying to see how this university is and I like it so far," Scott said. "They had a tough game, but it comes with the territory. They're a rebuilding program. They're trying to get back to where they were in 1990."

    I was at the game last night and regardless of the score i had a good time. I met some cool Mizzou fans and we just had a good time. It's not even like I expected us to win....Missouri is a hell of a team. I saw Scott once before the game laughing with Smith and a couple of other players so I'm pretty sure he had a good time.

    There's no doubt that this was a horrible loss. That being said, I wouldn't worry too much about the recruits who were visiting. I think that most of them are smart enough not to base their decision on one game. Even though it was a tough set back the recruits will hang around as long as CU can bounce back.

    From what I hear, he is the real deal. Like you, I haven't been able to see any videos though. People who have seen him in person typically have nothing but good things to say.

    My guess is that he will probably red shirt. It looks like PT Gates will be enrolling in January and I expect him to start next year. If Scott commits my guess is that it they will use a combination of Gates, Scott, Lockridge, and Sumler with Gates and Scott getting the most work. That would allow them to red shirt Polk in which case they would be looking at Scott, Polk, and Lockridge in 2009 and 2010.

    If Scott doesn't commit I would expect that Polk would probably play next season with Gates as the starter.

    There's no telling with this guy. He's one of those recruits who likes to screw around with the public so you have to take a lot of his updates with a grain of salt. Josh Smith gives CU a great chance at landing the kid. In addition to CU, it seems like Florida, Texas, Florida State, USC, et al all have a great chance. I'll say it again, there's really no telling with him.

    Dizon is looking like a good choice for linebacker right now for the Broncos.

    I have to admit. That was a good game. And with the addition of Jon Major to the team, I am very scared of what this team will be able to accomplish in the next couple years. He is a top 5 SLB in the nation, so this was another big signing by the Buffs.
