CU Makes Up Hilarious Depth Chart For Michigan Matchup

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Since Michigan Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh refuses to issue a team depth chart, the University of Colorado Athletics Department decided to have a little fun this week with theirs in advance of their meeting this weekend.

They filled it out, sure, but with fictional characters.

Colorado’s Sports Information Director Dave Plati is the mastermind of the list, which includes not only a free safety but a costly one, and such positions as a grouper, a one-fourth back, and a thin receiver…which is Olive Oil or Manute Bol.

The sheet comes complete with a key, so you know where he got the characters.

The star of the team? The best roamer Boulder could ask for: the Dude Lebowski, Jeff Bridges himself.

And while it’s all well-played, and quite funny, that’s the one point we have to dispute.

Danny Noonan would make a great strong safety, James Bond a defensive tackle, and the Hanson brothers as three halfbacks. But the Dude really should be the starting roamer over Bill Walton.

But that’s just our opinion, man.

The Buffaloes travel to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to face the Wolverines on Saturday afternoon.
