For only the fourteenth October in Denver’s official climatological records (dating back to 1882), the city finished last month with more than 10 inches of October snowfall. It was an exceptionally cold October, too — Denver recorded its fourth-coldest October on record, and its coldest October overall in a decade. Colorado recorded its fourth-coldest October overall as the state also finished last month with about double its typical end-of-October snowpack. Following a near-historic late winter and spring filled with off-the-charts snowpack levels earlier this year, could more of the same be expected again this winter? Historical and meteorological evidence is mixed — at best. On paper, signs might initially point to a higher-than-average winter. In Denver’s 14 previous years of double-digit October monthly snowfall totals, 10 of those winters have gone on to finish with above-average winter snowfall totals. But there’s a flaw to that statistical … [Read more...] about Denver weather: Does a snowy October mean we’re going to have a snowy winter?

Now the real fun begins. Week 14 means either quarterfinal-round play or the final week of the regular season for most fantasy football leagues. At this point, it’s about fielding a roster of players who can produce points regardless of what they may or may not have done of late.

Since Week 4, Cousins has thrown 18 touchdown passes and produced at least 276 passing yards in six of his past eight games. He faces a Lions defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks while yielding 25 touchdown passes. SIT: Josh Allen, QB, Bills: Allen has a stellar 11-1 TD:INT margin since Week 7, yet has only two games of better than 250 … [Read more...] about Fantasy football Week 14 NFL players to start and sit, including Broncos’ Noah Fant
As the new semester approaches, The Daily Wildcat sat down with returning President Robert C. Robbins to discuss free speech, free college, student housing and how Mike Candrea is the John Wooden of softball. Daily Wildcat: What can students expect from the next Campus Conversations? Robert C. Robbins: Well, I think that it was a process that was very passionate, very engaged with the entire university community and family. I think it was something that allowed us to take a hard look at how we were doing things at the university and how we relate to the community and where we are. This university, I think people don't understand how great it really is and how unique the setting we're in is for them. So, having an understanding of not only how great the university is, that we're great in research and we're now with the strategic plan, really focusing on student success.
