    The college basketball season begins in November, not January. That was Tad Boyle's message to fans earlier this week when the third-year head coach challenged the base to sell the Coors Events Center out for the Nov.

    One thing this does show is that the RPI, as flawed as it is, does work. Teams are scheduling up in order to make the tournament. That's better for fans. This year is a major step up for the Buffs.

    Here's our schedule based on the final RPIs of each opponent:

    #177 Wofford
    #92 Dayton
    #8 Baylor -or- #246 Boston College
    #144 Auburn -or- #162 Charleston -or- #22 Murray State -or #159 St. John's
    #172 Air Force
    #234 Texas Southern
    #86 Wyoming
    #28 CSU
    #5 Kansas
    #225 Fresno State
    #337 Northern Arizona
    #308 Hartford

    CU had an RPI of #51 last season and a SOS (conference included) of #57.

    This type of schedule gives us a great opportunity to have a winning record heading into conference play while also finishing with a SOS in the 20s or 30s (depending on the strength of the Pac-12). If you remember last season, we had 2 wins (Fort Lewis and New Orleans) that didn't even count to RPI.

    The best thing we can do this season is beat Dayton and get into a high rpi game versus Baylor.

    That's huge. It also guarantees that game 3 will be against a relatively high rpi team for us.

    I guess I wouldn't mind seeing Boston college beat Baylor.

    BC will be improved after starting like 5 frosh last year. They'll lose to Baylor, but if we were to lose against Dayton a game against BC won't be a total cakewalk although we'll win.
