Colorado Overhauls Football Depth Chart for Michigan Game
Jim Harbaugh is not a fan of transparency, for example he does not release a weekly depth chart publicly for game day.
Ahead of the game Saturday in the Big House, Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre reciprocated by not releasing the Buffaloes depth chart. This left the longtime Buffaloes SID (Sports Information Director) Dave Plati with a little extra time in his schedule, and he produced some gold.
In response to the lack of depth chart from Michigan, Colorado put out a new "depth chart" and college football has never seen a roster this full of characters I would have to believe.
The Buffaloes are going with a small QB tandem, Elmer Fudd gets the start over Danny DeVito, no word on if the Wolverines or their fans will bring some "wascawwy wabbits" to get Fudd's head out of the game.
In the backfield, watch out for the dangerous trio of Hanson brothers that can pound defenses, especially in the Single Wing-T formation that will feature them heavily. And you've got to give some love to the left tackle position as hometown kid Eric Cartman will get the start protecting Fudd's blindside (we're assuming he's a right handed QB).
On defense it's surprising to see the small but nimble Stewie Griffin get the start over the big hitting Peter Griffin at weak safety, but with Bernie Sanders getting the start at free safety it would appear that the secondary needs that speed, otherwise Wilton Speight might just throw all over the Buffaloes.
That is assuming Speight can get the ball out of the pocket in time. With Austin Powers, Vito Corelone and James Bond on the defensive line you better believe the Michigan offensive line will be in for a rough afternoon.
Michigan opened this week as a 20 point favorite over the Buffaloes. No word on if Vegas has moved the line with Colorado's newest depth chart being made public.
