Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre says he's confident Davis Webb will keep his commitment to the Buffs as a grad transfer: "I talk to Davis Webb basically every day ... He's told me every time he's definitely coming to Colorado. I don't have any other reason to think he wouldn't. I just don't like the rule. He signed with us. He signed a financial aid agreement. And then everybody else can still recruit him ... and try to manipulate him ... But I believe he'll still be here at Colorado."

It's tough to bet against Oregon as the Pac-12's best offense since the Ducks have led the conference in scoring every season since 2007.
The Pac-12 saw sack numbers tumble in 2015 and loses a number of its leading sackers. But with less experience at QB in 2016, might numbers rebound?
Colorado OLB Derek McCartney got a pass from spring practice for a good cause, as he donated peripheral blood stem cells to help a cancer patient.
Nine Pac-12 teams welcome back at least three starters in their defensive secondaries, but two groups stand out among the rest.
It helps that this spring Colorado defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt has more than a night to prepare himself going into the spring.
As Colorado prepares for its spring game, the most pressing issue facing the Buffaloes is the offense's regression last season.
