If it can happen in San Jose, out of the blue, Steve Addazio figures, why the heck can’t it happen in FoCo? Like right now? “Our goal is to hit this thing running this season and have a remarkable season,” Addazio, the CSU Rams’ second-year football coach, told The Post during a recent telephone interview. “I mean, that’s well within our reach. Will that happen? Well, that remains to be seen. “So I think, (if we) stay healthy, stay together, I think those things are very possible this season. Obviously, San Jose State had just a remarkable (2020).” Remarkable and unexpected. In a pandemic-shortened, choppy season, the plucky Spartans emerged from the autumn chaos as one of college football’s biggest surprises. San Jose State won the Mountain West with a 7-0 conference mark (7-1 overall) after being picked to finish fifth in the West division last July. Over the previous four seasons, the Spartans had posted a combined record of 12-37. During that same stretch, the Rams … [Read more...] about CSU coach Steve Addazio talks Buffs, Karl Dorrell, Rick George, and why Rams can be San Jose State of 2021

Contrary to what Georgia’s governor , Fox News , Newsweek and others have said since Major League Baseball moved the All-Star Game out of the Atlanta area, Colorado’s voter access laws are not more restrictive than Georgia’s. By nearly all measures, Colorado makes it more convenient to vote and is consistently and widely hailed by Democratic and Republican officials alike as among the safest and most accessible states in the U.S. to cast a ballot. The two states are being compared because of MLB moving its annual All-Star Game from the Atlanta Braves’ stadium after Georgia passed a controversial new voting law . The game will be held instead at Coors Field . Here are a few ways Colorado and Georgia’s voting laws differ.

Brian Kemp said Tuesday. “So it doesn’t make a whole lot of … [Read more...] about How do Colorado voting laws compare to Georgia’s voting laws?
Two groups with very different ideas about what drives the cost of health insurance both have their eyes on Garfield County, where residents pay significantly more than similar people living on Colorado’s Front Range. At a community meeting this week, Garfield County Commissioner Tom Jankovsky said residents have told him for years that they can’t afford the cost of health insurance premiums, which are among the state’s highest, in the individual marketplace. Most Coloradans get insurance from their employers, Medicare or Medicaid, but those who aren’t eligible for those have to buy an individual plan on the Connect for Health Colorado marketplace, or go without coverage. The state’s reinsurance program — essentially, a backstop that limits how much insurance companies lose when covering people with expensive needs — helped some, as did Rocky Mountain Health Plan’s entry into the individual market, Jankovsky said. Still, about 14% of the county’s residents are uninsured, which is … [Read more...] about Two groups pitch plans to make health insurance affordable in one of Colorado’s priciest markets

Football coach Steve Addazio and CSU athletics were largely absolved by an independent investigation of published accusations of wrongdoing, the university announced. An eight-week investigation into the Rams’ athletic department by the legal team of Husch Blackwell determined that alleged COVID-19 protocol violations were inconclusive, inconsistent or a result of miscommunication. The law firm found similar inconsistencies when it came to charges of racist-and-abusive language. Husch Blackwell noted that while Addazio, the Rams’ first-year coach, and his staff have made missteps, some of the concerns stemmed from conduct by former football coach Mike Bobo and assistant coaches who are no longer a part of the program. Addazio and athletic director Joe Parker declined to comment Thursday, through an athletic department spokesman, deferring to a previous statement by university president Joyce McConnell. She wrote in an open letter released late Wednesday that the university will … [Read more...] about Steve Addazio, CSU Rams largely absolved by independent investigation
