    Breathe it in.

    You know what that smell is?* It's the intoxicating aroma of leather and hardwood.* It can mean only one thing: basketball is back!* Let it ring!




    I can't hold it in any more: IT'S GAMEDAY! We made it folks!* It's finally November!* Hit the lights, lace up the sneakers, and let's get this party started!

    Coach Tad Boyle (praise be his name), in all of his wisdom, has decided that Colorado should begin 2013-14 on the road by playing hated rival Baylor in the semi-neutral setting of Dallas, TX. *This is quite a step out of the norm for CU, as the program hasn't started the regular season away from home in a decade.* You have to go back to November of 2003, when the Buffs traveled to Evanston, IL on opening night to take on Northwestern. *Behind 21 points from Michel Morandais, Colorado claimed a solid 67-56 victory.

    However, even in that year, CU hosted a pair of exhibition games at the CEC before their opening road-trip. To find the last time CU played their first public game of the year outside of beautiful Boulder, CO, you have to go back to 2000, when the Buffs opened the year against the University of Alaska in chilly Fairbanks as part of a non-conference tournament. *They won that one, too, 79-68.

    Certainly, tonight will be a much tougher matchup than either of those two were. *Baylor starts the season as #25 in the initial AP rankings, and has all the pieces for a run to a good seed in the NCAA Tournament. *But this is what we as fans should want - marquee matchups with some of the best in the nation. *I wish it was at a more convenient locale, but I'm heartened to see that the Buffs have the cachet to pull in these kinds of showcase events.

    Tip-off from American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX is set for 8pm MT. *Coverage can be found on ROOT. *Mark Johnson and the radio broadcast will be on 850 KOA.
