1. Spencer's summer

Colorado basketball's Spencer Dinwiddie had a busy summer. The Buffaloes guard played for the USA in the Men's World University Games in Russia and has been hooping in front of scouts at the Adidas Nations Global Championships in California. He even hung out with NBA star Stephan Curry.

The website Draft Express caught up with Dinwiddie in the video above where he states that if his stock next spring is in the top 15; he'll be packing up and moving out of Boulder following the NBA draft. If not, he'll return to be one of the greatest Buffs in history.

On the 2013-14 Buffs: "I think we'll be a little more potent offensively, so I'll be able to pass the ball a little more. My assist numbers will probably go up."

Personal goals for the season: "I'm just hoping to improve my efficiency and rebound a little bit more with the absence of Andre Roberson and lead our team to a deep tournament run. I mean, that's one of the main focuses of me coming back besides you know to improve my game is to really make a tournament run."

On his position in the NBA: "Hopefully people see me as a franchise one. I've heard rumblings that some people see me as maybe the second best point guard in the class behind Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State)."

2. Pollster

Fantasy football drafts and college football pickems are in full swing. Take a look at Yahoo's game, where 66 percent of participants have picked the Rams for the Rocky Mountain Showdown. Granted, not a lot of people nationally know much about the game, but the number is fairly surprising. In other poll numbers, 93 percent of voters in a Coloradoan chat are going with the Rams while the Buffs lead on the Denver Post's sports page with 55 percent.

Notes from the chat mentioned above

On CSU coach Jim McElwain's comments about Paul Richardson being the fastest than anyone the former Alabama offensive coordinator had in his days with the Tide: "It did seem like he was reaching the point of sarcasm, but he also said he was thankful Richardson didn't play against CSU last year and kind of wished he wouldn't return until Week 2."

On which Ram will be matched up against Richardson at the RMS: " (Bernard) Blake has actually fallen to No. 2 on the depth chart. He's the guy, I'd assume, would match up against Richardson one-on-one, but I'm thinking there will be a lot of double teams, zones and bait-and-switch for him."

3. Darlington concussions

Nebraska football says it will honor the scholarship offer to 2014 commit quarterback Zack Darlington of Apopka, Fla., who suffered his second concussion in as many months on Saturday during a game. Darlington was airlifted off the field, but was released from the hospital on Sunday. The three-star recruit committed to the Huskers in June and will sit on the sidelines until he's concussion symptom-free.

4. Mason Crosby

It looks like Packers kicker and former CU standout Mason Crosby will be the guy in Green Bay. The Packers released kicker Zach Ramirez on Tuesday, leaving Crosby as the only one on the roster. Crosby hit 21 of 33 field goal attempts last season for 63.6 percent. The former Buff is a lifetime 76.8 percent kicker in the NFL.

5. Target watch

The Los Angeles Times has a video and a story on CU football 2014 target David Williams of Dorsey High School. The receiver, safety prospect talks about his love of math and hitting the books as hard as he hits opposing teams.

On an offer from Yale: ""I had a big grin on my face. I told my mom, 'I just received my fourth offer.' From who? I told her, 'Yale.' She said, 'Yale?' And she started screaming on the phone. She was very happy for me.""

2014 running back target Marcus Horne got his JUCO season off to a good start going for 51 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries for Western Arizona in a 40-7 victory.
