• Before we get to Paul Wulff's thoughts about the win over Colorado, we want to pass along what he ahd to say about quarterback Jeff Tuel. After his X-rays Sunday, Tuel was cleared to begin practicing in full pads this week. There is a possibility he could play Saturday, but it all depends on how his practice goes.
