Coming off a 5-7 campaign, the Colorado Buffaloes are looking for an improved offense this fall.
Entering the 2018 season, the Buffaloes staff is hopeful its offense can put up more points this season.

From BuffZone’s Brian Howell:
Co-coordinators Darrin Chiaverini and Klayton Adams are hoping that a good spring set the foundation, and both came into the summer feeling optimistic about the Buffs’ potential.
“Spring was very productive and we’re trying to form our identity a little bit and I like where we’re headed with what we’re doing offensively,” Chiaverini said. “I think it’s going to be fun to watch this fall and I’m excited to get started this summer again.”
Chiaverini enters his first season as the play caller, after co-coordinator Brian Lindgren left CU for a similar position at Oregon State. Since the change, Chiaverini has often expressed his desire to increase the tempo on offense.
Despite running one of the faster paces in college football, Colorado ranked just 81st in scoring in the FBS ranks in 2017.
“There’s a lot of new energy, not because of new coaches, but more because there’s a lot of guys that haven’t played a lot of ball and they want to prove themselves,” senior wide receiver Jay McIntyre said, per the report. “Even the guys that have played ball have a little chip on their shoulder and want to prove even more. That energy is contagious with the competitive nature of it all.”
