Colorado Football 2012: OC Eric Bieniemy Expands Playbook

Colorado Buffaloes offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is adding more to the Colorado Buffaloes offensive playbook in 2012.

How much more, though, we'll just have to wait and see.

Bieniemy, who is in his second year as Colorado's offensive coordinator, estimates that the team only used roughly 35-40 percent of the playbook last year.

"I was taught as a player to learn from the dinosaurs," Bieniemy said. "You've got to make sure that you're willing to adapt and keep it moving.

"Obviously we've done a little studying with different offenses and different people across the country, but you've always got to be willing to experiment with things and be willing to try something new. Just because you've done it a certain way your whole entire life doesn't mean you can't change for the better."

That Bieniemy is embracing new wrinkles and a larger playbook can only mean good things for Colorado's offense -- assuming the players are able to grasp the playbook.

Buffaloes fans won't have to wait too long to see the expanded playbook, as Colorado will open the 2012 season on Sept. 1 against Colorado State.
