    It's easy to get wrapped up in the excitement of March.* The beauty of the collegiate game is that, with the lose-and-go-home tournament format, anything is possible at the end of the year.* In 2012, CU finally took advantage of that system, and ran the table in LA, securing the program's first conference title in over 40 years.* That alone makes the season a resounding success.

    However, to properly understand the value of a season, you need to pull back your lens and refocus on the year as a whole.* After the jump, I'm going to go on a narrative journey through the 2011-12 basketball season, delving into the story lines to get a better appreciation for how the season developed. *Next*week, I'll conclude with some thoughts on player performance, and an overall look as the team's statistical trends.

    This is too damn good to be only in the newsroom. Everyone read and rep Rumblin for this.

    Almost repped RSSBot. Dammit Rumblin, post in here so you can get your rep.

    That was my 5th rewrite; I struggled for 2 weeks on how to best describe the season. Weeks later I'm still shocked at how it all went down.

    I know. Weeks after the fact, I still find myself slowly shaking my head and mumbling, "We're not this good". I still can't quite wrap myself around "Pac-12 Champs and Final 32".
