    Tipoff: 7:00pm MT
    Radio: 760am
    TV: Fox Sports 1

    Last meeting. CU win 91-87.

    Notes: Since joining the conference, CU has never lost to the ducks when the ducks have been ranked. Tad Boyle is 6-3 against Oregon overall, 3 wins come away from the coors event center.

    This game should be tournament level basketball. CU vs UO is typically must see television and I don't see this game being any different. A win puts CU solidly in the running for a regular season conference title and would all but secure a first round bye in the conference tournament, barring a 2nd half collapse by the Buffs.

    10 point underdog. That would be a big time road upset. Then whoop up on GPII's beavers and that random reporter from Alabama might accidentally vote for us in the top 25 again.

    It would be huge. I see people really hyping up Oregon talking about them being a sleeper pick in a year without any really dominant teams.

    Hope for the best. Expect the worst. We'll have to play our best road game, maybe, ever. Can anyone think of a Boyle era road win against a better opponent? This is going to be tough. Our offense has to show up the entire game.

    Took me like a whole season to finally get FS1 on dish. Started with the sports package or something. CU on FS1, upgraded to sports plus or something. No game. Next time CU is on, upgrade to sports plus ultra or something. No CU game. Again, on FS1, upgrade again to sports plus ultra super ir something. Finally a couple weeks ago, upgraded to America's top 3000 or something and voila, I got FS1! My dish bill is now $215 a month and I got every sporting event on earth and pretty much every channel in every language imaginable, but I can watch every Buff game.

    We did beat #3 Arizona at Arizona in 2012-2013 season, that was a tougher game (and I still believe we won that game)

    According to KenPom, the three best road wins under Tad at CU are:

    * 1/12/11 - @ #28 Kansas State - http://kenpom.com/winprob.php?g=2743&y=2011
    * 2/7/13 - @ #35 Oregon - http://kenpom.com/box.php?g=3920&y=2013
    * 3/5/14 - @ #38 Stanford - http://kenpom.com/box.php?g=5210&y=2014

    I think I'll go to a bar instead. I don't care much for cricket.

    Huge game tonight. I know tad will be pulling out all the stops for this one because of his undying love for altman.

    We seem to have relatively good fortunes up in Eugene. anyone remember the 47-48 tilt where dre grabbed his own rebound and put it back with <5 seconds left?

    This one is huuuuuuuuge. Going to watch at Half Fast on the hill with some C-Unit friends. First time we've had a watch party for a regular season road game that I can recall.

    A win in Eugene would certainly be a game changer. Huge opportunity. Live RPI gives the Buffs a 27% chance. Those Duck runs come fast and furious. Going to need to see some major poise from Dom & Co. on both sides if we're to have a chance heading into the final 4 mins

    KenPom gives us an 18% chance at a win.

    Now would be a good time for it to click with Fortune, along with King going off.

    Hopefully our 3 point shooters are feeling it tonight. King, Collier and Fortune are all shooting from 43% up to 49% for the season. They probably have the green light if they are playing inside out and the shot is there for them.

    Fletcher should have a blinking yellow or red light as he has attempted a lot of 3s and is only at 29%. Yaz isn't doing a whole lot better.

    CenturyLink has a TV package that includes the Pac 12 Net, for under $40. Only available in Denver and its's burbs, I think - definitely not Greeley - but they are expanding.

    I feel like we'll either get blown out or win tonight.

    Foul on Dorsey and on Brooks at the 16min time out. Buffs playing good defense.
