It's c-c-c-o-l-d

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, shows the high temperaturs for the rest of the week being, 54, 55, 57 and 65 on game day.
