There is less than 15 days until the 2013 season kicks off at Sports Authority Field for the Rocky Mountain Showdown between Colorado and Colorado State.

Coach Mike MacIntyre put his troops through a scrimmage for over two hours here Saturday morning preparing his team for the upcoming season.

MacIntyre met with the media following the scrimmage held at Folsom Field and this question and answer probably sums up fall camp so far.

‘Mike are you where you want to be at this point?'

MacIntyre responded: "Of course not."

MacIntyre is clearly a detailed oriented coach that isn't easily satisfied, that perhaps a good thing since this is a Colorado team coming off just one win in 2012.

The Buffs got in a lot of good work Saturday morning, working special teams, offense and defense, including a lot of situational work.

"We worked every phase of the kicking game," MacIntyre said. "I thought we got some good things done with the work we did. We got a lot of things we will be able to coach off of, it's good to have the high film being in the stadium."

MacIntyre was clear about what he wanted to accomplish from today's workout.

"No. 1 I wanted no injuries, we had 0," MacIntyre said. "I wanted to see us execute and do things without our coaches being on the field, substitutions and overall we were probably around 99 percent of getting all of that done. I wanted to see how they lined up and execute, I thought the timing of the offense getting the plays called and getting to the line of scrimmage was good."

The Buffs have gone 15 straight practices without a break, the Colorado Football team will take off Sunday before returning for 2-a-days on Monday.

"Our players have really worked hard," MacIntyre said. "We have gone 15 straight practices without a break. We have been in pads all but the first two days, it will be good for the team to get a day to recover and come back out Monday ready to keep working hard."

MacIntyre was asked if his players were having fun playing football.

"Yes they really seem to be having fun out here," MacIntyre said. "They seem to be enjoying the things we are doing and I want our players to have fun playing the game we all love."
