Colorado State Football: Spring Game Results In Gold's 10-3 Victory

First-year head coach Jim McElwain held his first spring game with the Colorado St. Rams, which resulted in a 10-3 victory for Gold over Green. As evidenced by the score, there wasn't much offense going on in the game. At halftime the score was tied at zero. Not a single offensive touchdown was scored.

Gold put the first points on the board by way of a Jared Roberts 45-yard field goal. Shaq Bell scored the only touchdown of the game when he intercepted M.J. McPeek for a 45-yard interception return and touchdown. Roberts later added a 37-yard field goal for the Green team, ending the scoring for the day.

Joe Kawulok ended the game with a sack, wrapping up what appears to have been a so-so game.

Reports coming from the game have it that McPeek wasn't good, possibly moving Conner Smith into the backup role behind Garrett Grayson.

Attendance was announced at 7,000 but was likely a couple thousand below that.

Colorado State Football 2012: Spring Practice Sees Position Changes, 3-4 Defense

Colorado St. Rams head coach Jim McElwain continues his first spring practice as the man in charge, and he's already moved players around, reports the Coloradoan. At 6 feet 3 and 300 pounds, Alex Tucci had been an offensive lineman, but he has been switched to the other side of the line and has practiced as the noseguard.

What that means is, Colorado State will use a 3-4 defensive scheme with three defensive lineman and four linebackers playing in the front seven. Though McElwain was the offensive coordinator for the Alabama Crimson Tide, he is no stranger to the 3-4 defense since his offense practiced against the team's 3-4 setup.

Broderick Sargent and Davis Burl are switching to linebacker from the defensive line and John Froland and Zach Tiedgen will move from the interior of the defensive line to defensive end. Both in the 6 feet 5 and 260 pounds range, they will now attack from the edge.
