    Really want payback for last year's loss. Need to see better defense by the guards and wings, and limit turnovers. I'd expect Josh to be doubled so finding the open man and hitting the outside shot will be key.

    I expect Josh to have a hell of a game. His performance last year was awful (back issues being the likely cause)... but yea, I am sure he wants this one.

    CSU turns their roster over so much year to year, I know Gillon killed us last year. Looks like Clavell is their leading scorer and Scott who is 2nd, suffered an injury in their last game. Looks like they have almost no bench depth. Need to get their starters in foul trouble, but harder to do on the road.

    They're bad defensively right now. We've gotta play Tadball and it'll play right into our hands. Gonna be a hard one though - they're better than many (myself included) expected them to be.

    CSU will do what they normally do... pack the defense down to force the Buffs to win from the perimeter. If our squad can shoot under pressure at what should be a nuts arena in Ft. Collins, the Buffs will win. Turnovers is my other concern. Need to value the basketball on this trip.

    Right now, CSU is the 11th worst team in the nation at forcing turnovers. Is that because they suck at it or are they going Tad-style where they prefer to just play D straight up?

    Here's the real question: what the **** is ROOT and how do I get it on my TV/computer?

    Root Sports Rocky Mountain. Same channel they show the Rockies games on. I think it's 665 on Comcast in Denver.

    LBSU is going into Moby fairly battle-tested, from the looks of their schedule.

    vs BRI W 91-57
    vs BYU W 66-65
    vs HALL W 80-77
    vs 6 UVA L 87-52
    vs OKST L 82-77
    @ OKST L 79-73
    vs SDSU 12/1
    @ CSU 12/3

    Other than UVA, they're competitive against some P5 teams. Played Okie Light twice in five days, in a odd schedule that included the Charleston tourney.

    Long Beach State schedules like no team I've ever seen. And they get some players. That program's no joke.

    Hopefully they take the Rammies into 6 overtimes; lose, and CSU is fully wrecked for our game on Sunday.

    I have heard Road 34 is a good bar, or Fuzzy taco. Lots of Beer, close to the stadium.

    Um, isn't there a "game" between now and Sunday? I know, it's more like a scrimmage, but still.

    A) There is no equivalent to the Horse
    B) Road 34 just west of campus is a decent spot to pre-game, you can park around there and walk over.
