    For those wondering, Shldr2Shldr had a great post over on Allbuffs listing the numerous seeding breakdowns that could play out this week. *With ASU losing in Eugene last night, the dream scenario which sees CU vault into third place remains alive, but they'd have to sweep in the Bay Area and have the Sun Devils choke in Corvallis on Saturday. *Highly unlikely. *Even without that perfect set-up, however, the Buffs could still claim a bye, but have to win at least one in San Francisco. *My feeling is that the game against Cal is the likelier of the two, at least with how the teams have been playing lately, but I think CU 'matches up' better with the Cardinal. *Regardless, the Buffs are underdogs this week, and some chalk could complicate the Vegas trip.

    I still have faith, however. *Two unsurprising losses have some reaching for the panic button, and others getting ludicrous and mumbling bull**** like 'Right now, the only teams CU may be better than are Washington State and USC.' *Overreact if it makes you feel better, but this is still a strong CU team, and no one will be taking the Buffs lightly over the next few weeks. *Count this bunch out at your peril - watch them surprise us all and make the 3rd-seed happen.

    Tip-off from Maples Pavilion in Palo Alto, CA is set for 7pm this evening. *Coverage can be found on ESPN2, with the radio call on 850 KOA.
