  • Klee: A polite request for the NFL, and Broncos, to be better

    Updated: Sun, Mar 29, 2015

    DENVER - The Super Bowl opened with accusations of cheating and closed with a brawl in the end zone. The Bears just signed an alleged woman beater; the Cowboys just signed a convicted one. A former Patriots star is on trial for murder. The next major acquisition is coming, whenever...

  • Klee: International scouting not a foreign idea to Denver Nuggets

    Updated: Wed, Mar 25, 2015

    DENVER — The Nuggets held practice Tuesday, and a Rosetta Stone commercial broke out. Joffrey Lauvergne, a rookie forward, celebrated a swished 3 with a French superlative. Patrick Mutombo, an assistant, confirmed he speaks seven languages. Jusuf Nurkic claims he can't get into...

  • Klee: For Broncos running back C.J. Anderson, gift to grandma is one for a lifetime

    Updated: Tue, Mar 24, 2015

    DENVER — Her old ride didn't have air conditioning. The emergency brake failed years ago, and passing emissions testing was a pipe dream. Barbara Gaddies is 71, and her '97 Saturn sat low enough that she had trouble climbing into the driver's seat. So C.J. Anderson, the Broncos...

  • Klee: Can Air Force reach the NCAA Tournament again? Probably not

    Updated: Sun, Mar 22, 2015

    DENVER — It's a cute, noble idea, the notion that college athletics are conducted on an even playing field. So is the theory "Yes, we can" bridge the aisle in Washington. So is two months paid vacation, or fresh powder every day. So is the Easter bunny. My esteemed colleague, Mr....

  • Klee: Wyoming not supposed to be in NCAA Tournament, and that's a good thing

    Updated: Thu, Mar 19, 2015

    DENVER — Wyoming, the only Front Range program to find a spot in this NCAA Tournament, is not supposed to be there, playing Northern Iowa in Seattle on Friday. More specifically, senior forward Derek Cooke Jr. is definitely not supposed to be there - or playing basketball at all....

  • Klee: Colorado State's Dantiel Daniels the reason for March Madness

    Updated: Wed, Mar 18, 2015

    FORT COLLINS — The Nike sneakers cost $125. No, he told his grandmother. I don't need those. Dantiel Daniels said he'd rather buy three pair from Payless and pocket the extra $20. Maybe it was the dead body in the alley that shaped his perspective on what's important. Maybe it was...

  • Klee: CSU snubbed, and NCAA selection committee again out of its league

    Updated: Mon, Mar 16, 2015

    DENVER — Forget the new football stadium. To make a real statement as a player in the "Who do you know?" business of college athletics, Colorado State must think big picture. Its next move should be a massive one. CSU must change its name. Here, try this: UCLA-FC. Or Louisville West....

  • Klee: Anyone curious to see if Peyton Manning fits with Gary Kubiak's system?

    Updated: Sun, Mar 15, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - He's 6-foot-3, 245 pounds, and has a slicked-back-hair, Ryan Gosling look going for him. Then there's the whole millionaire thing. Owen Daniels, the new tight end, signed a three-year contract with the Broncos that's worth over $12,000,000. As an NFL player, he's famous....

  • Klee: With big picture in focus, Sierra will see its accomplishments

    Updated: Sat, Mar 14, 2015

    BOULDER - This will not always be a bad memory. They will look back and remember the sweet times - the undefeated run through the Class 4A Colorado Springs Metro League, the semifinals appearance at state, one guy playfully hiding another guy's cell phone on the team bus - and say,...
