John Guydon: Definitely the first game. It kicks off the season and sets the tone for the season.
Q: You haven't played in a game since 2002. How hungry are you to get out there and play against guys in different jerseys?
JG: Very, very hungry. I'm anxious to get out and look at all the hard work I've put in.
Q: What's the best thing about being a Buffalo?
JG: We're a tight-knit group. We're a family. We're a group of guys that take care of each other and look after each other. And we've got a lot of pride.
Q: I've heard you're a comedian.
JG: I did a few stand-up routines back in California, just on the amateur level. Nothing big.
Q: What do you like the most about Boulder?
JG: It's very unique. It's got a heckuva view. I grew up in Orange County. I grew up on the ocean, but this is just beautiful here.
Q: Coach Barnett said about a week ago that you're going to be practicing some on the offensive line. Have you been doing that?
JG: Yeah, I've just been doing some walk-through things just to get coached up there so if they need me on the offensive side of the ball I'll know what I'm doing.
Q: How do you feel about that?
JG: I feel great. It's an honor to have the respect and the trust of the coaches for me to be the guy to step in on the offensive side of the ball if they need me. That's an honor. I want to do whatever it takes to help the team out, period.
Q: Which position do you have the most fun playing?
JG: Defensive line. That's what I was recruited for. I think I'm finally starting to get the scheme.
Q: After practicing all spring at offensive line, do you feel good about what you've been able to do on the defensive line in August?
JG: Yeah. Not having a spring behind me, I just looked at that as a challenge. I took the coaching that Coach Wilson gave me and went after it. I've just been attacking the challenge.
Q: Since you've played on both sides of the ball, give me a guy on both sides of the ball who you think is going to surprise people this year?
JG: On the offense, I'd like to mention the freshman Daniel Sanders. He's a big guy, he's explosive, and he's got a knack for the game. I think he's got an opportunity to help us this year.
On the defensive side, Brandon Dabdoub, coming back from injury — the guy's been here five years and knows what he's doing. He's a great athlete and he's going to some great things. A lot of guys are going to do some great things. I'm excited.
