    When asked during post practice interview about the identity Tad wants for his team....
    Defense
    Rebounding

    Nice to hear he is still focused on that. He seems to recruit athletes who can score, and then focus on D and R....great formula.

    Maybe target some left-handers in the next recruiting cycle too.

    10/5 media address by the Boyle.
    Frosh doing worse as they absorb the system.

    Akyazili has made great strides.

    Deleon Brown and Bryce Peters mentioned as guys with the desire to be defensive stoppers. he then goes and mentions every other non-F/C on the team as guys who he wished had that kind of desire. Think Tad has missed that?

    Tad is dropping truth all over the place.

    XJ: "At *least* the Elite 8". I like it. Gonna be an expensive year if I have to go to the Rose Bowl and the Final Four.

    Where did the experts have the football team ranked preseason.
    Experts go with low hanging safe picks.
    They dont take into account all the factors.
    Optimally all these teams with 4 and 5 star players should be ranked, but that is not how the season tends to play out.

    I like the CU ranking. Hopefully gives a little more motivation to exceed national expectations. I highly doubt UCLA ends up in the top 25 by March, much less 16.

    Best of luck this season Buffs bros. If Tad gets the D&R ironed out, could be another special season involving dancing at the end.

    I don't think that "One Shining Moment" is really a song that many of the Buffs would really dance to.

    I'm not fully buying the D & rebounding mantra this year. It's not like the team is a bunch of new guys meeting Tad Boyle for the first time. Almost everyone expected to get major minutes has been in the program for several years.

    Did they forget about Tadball this summer? When they wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat screaming "Box Out!!!" do they just dismiss it as some strange dream? When they subconsciously swat garbage out of the hand of a random Boulderite is it because they were about to use the wrong recycling bin? No. No, this team could be flying around like a Thibodeau-esque death machine and Tad would still slowly lower his glasses around his neck and with a furrowed brow tell reporters how is team just isn't fully grasping his defense and rebounding concepts. This is what great coaches do, they never let a team get complacent.

    I must admit, Tad is good. Even though I believe everything I typed above, I watch his post-practice interviews and come away convinced that this team better be dreaming about box-outs and close-outs or it is going to be a frustrating season.

    Tad believes that this year's squad matches his first team (Alec, Corey, Levi, Marcus, etc.) for offensive firepower... but that he'll get this team to play defense.

    Apparently SMU "won" the first game. Second game was a tie.

    Good luck to the Shockers this year. Your ooc match-up against the boomers could be a barn burner.
