1. Silver Creek at Holy Family
It's been a long two weeks for Colorado football 2014 commit Isaac Miller and his Silver Creek football teammates since their last game on Sept. 7. The 6-foot-7, 250-pound Longmont offensive lineman and his family evacuated their home last week as floodwaters washed over the city.
BoCoPreps.com reported that Silver Creek's offensive line coach Russ Miller (Isaac's father) got his family to safety, but their property was damaged.
From the story: "Russ and Isaac Miller decided to bring some things up from the basement in case they needed to evacuate. At the top of the stairs after his first trip, Russ Miller looked out his window and saw three feet of white water rushing down the street towards his home. He went outside and heard a woman screaming for everyone to get out of their homes."
"Isaac Miller grabbed the family dog and Russ Miller carried Blythe Miller out to their truck and they left immediately. Days later, he said a few of his neighbors who waited longer to leave did so through shoulder-high water."

3. Waz update
Rivals reports that 2014 CU commit safety Chance Waz will likely take an official visit to Nebraska this fall with his Hendrickson (Pflugerville, Texas) teammate and Husker commit Trai Mosley. Waz is still verbally committed to the Buffs, but it appears the Huskers have piqued his interest.
4. Sliver of hope
There's slight hope in the Fort, at least for a quarter, as Alabama sophomore running back T.J. Yeldon has been suspended for a quarter of tomorrow's game against Colorado State. According to AnnistonStar.com, the Tide's leading rusher will hit the bench after last week's "money" gesture Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel does after big plays and for his "double throat-slashing" gesture. Alabama is still favored by 36 to 40 points.
5. Foster's tacos
Former Tennessee running back and current NFL star Arian Foster says that he took money during his collegiate days with the Volunteers. What else did he take? Tacos.
"Then I walk back, and reality sets in. I go to my dorm room, open my fridge, and there's nothing in my fridge. Hold up, man. What just happened? Why don't I have anything to show for what I just did? There was a point where we had no food, no money, so I called my coach and I said, 'Coach, we don't have no food. We don't have no money. We're hungry. Either you give us some food, or I'm gonna go do something stupid.' He came down and he brought like 50 tacos for like four or five of us. Which is an NCAA violation. [laughs] But then, the next day I walk up to the facility and I see my coach pull up in a brand new Lexus. Beautiful."
