Leading rusher confirms transfer

BOULDER, Colo. -- Former University of Colorado running back
Brian Calhoun confirmed he has transferred and enrolled at
Wisconsin.

His hometown of Oak Creek, Wis., is about two hours from his new
school in Madison.

Calhoun led CU with 810 rushing yards and five touchdowns last
season but said Saturday that he had difficulty adjusting after
former running backs coach Eric Bieniemy left for UCLA in 2002.

Bieniemy had recruited Calhoun to CU.


"My reason for leaving is far different than everybody expects and thinks," he said this spring. He has said it had nothing to do with the recruiting scandal that led to coach Gary Barnett's suspension.

NCAA rules mandate that Calhoun sit out a football season at
Wisconsin after transferring.

He can still compete in track and field for Wisconsin in the
2004-05 school year. Calhoun said he will compete in the 100 and
200 meters, and the long jump.
