The Colorado Buffaloes made it into town -- about three hours later than they hoped.
They didn't get to enjoy the Team Welcome Party. But hey, they did get to practice.
And it was cold.
Hey, I know the folks in Colorado probably aren't impressed by shivering sports writers in 40-degree weather. But it was a wet cold.
And yet, here were the Buffs practicing in helmets, shoulder pads and shorts, like it was the first week of two-a-day practices.
“We always practice in shorts,’’ Colorado quarterback Cody Hawkins said. “They won’t let us wear sweat pants in practice. A lot of guys may want to wear sweat pants. But when you’re running around, it’s not that bad.’’
Easy for him to say, he didn't even bring any long-sleeve shirts to Shreveport.
By the way, Weather.com shows the high temperaturs for the rest of the week being, 54, 55, 57 and 65 on game day.
