BOULDER, Colo. – The Colorado Buffaloes are in a hurry.
They can't wait to put the sour taste of last year's program-worst 1-11 season behind them and get on with new coach Mike MacIntyre's up-tempo offense that he's bringing over from San Jose State.
MacIntyre engineered a quick turnaround with the Spartans from 1-12 in his first season in 2010 to their first 11-win season since 1940 last fall.
Helping him in his quest to duplicate that fast fix in Boulder is speedy wide receiver Paul Richardson, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL. His return gives the Buffs a playmaker who can stretch the field and open up opportunities for other receivers as well as Colorado's deep stable of running backs.
