Brock was a great football player who developed extremely well and consistently throughout his career. As he entered his senior year, he was eager to win. Entering his first year as the Colorado head coach, Fairbanks was looking to bring the Buffs back to the winning side of football though that’s not exactly what happened during Brock’s senior year.”
