Once again, the rumors are flying around Boulder and Marcus Houston is right in the middle of them.

The talk of Houston transfering out of Boulder is getting stronger, although nothing has been confirmed.

The latest from CU is that Houston is not happy that the did not see any playing time in the Alamo Bowl, although he was ahead of of freshman RB Brian Calhoun.

Another issue is that Houston has stated he has been healthy for the past four or five weeks and can't understand why he hasen't received any playing time. Especially with Chris Brown and Bobby Purify injured.

Next week should be a key time for this story. While Head Coach Gary Barnett is in New Orleans for the American Football Coaches Association this week, the Buffs are preparing for winter conditioning drills. If Houston does not participate in those drills, the odds are he is out of CU.

If Houston does leave the school, he will have to sit out at least a year, two if he goes to another Big 12 school. Houston is a third year sophomore.
