Colorado Football 2012: Don't Expect QB Shane Dillon To Redshirt, According To Report

The Colorado Buffaloes looked to have gained a starting quarterback in Connor Wood on Saturday following an impressive spring game performance. However, Nick Hirschman is expected to challenge Wood in fall camp when August comes around. We can also expect a freshman quarterback to be in line for some playing time: Shane Dillon, according to the Denver Post.

Of course, things could change over the next four months or so and leave Dillon redshirting this fall. This is a Buffaloes team that is coming off a 3-10 season in 2011 and is replacing many key starters on offense. Dillon could certainly gain playing time during blow outs -- if they happen -- but it's hard to imagine Wood and his non-freshman backups playing ahead of Wood at the moment.
