Before he even steps onto the field with the Colorado Buffaloes, new defensive coordinator Charles Kelly wants to find out something about the nature of his players.

“The first thing you have to do before you ever talk about a defensive decision or a defensive play is find the people that are going to compete,” Kelly said during a Thursday news conference. “The only way to do that is to put people in competitive situations and create competition.”
