    Tipoff: 7:30pm
    TV: ESPNU
    Radio: 850 or 760am not positive

    Watch parties: Blake Street Tavern, Half-Fast Subs, The Dark Horse

    Final game of the regular season. Tournament seeding is on the line (3-6). History is on the line (first colorado team to win 22 games in a regular season, ever). A budding "rivalry" is staring us in the face.

    Go Buffs, Beat ****.

    Roll Tad.

    Would be awesome to pull out the win here. To shut them down, Josh and Wes need to chip Poeltl.

    Whatever happens, why are we writing "****" in place of "Utah"? Just because the PAC 12 told us our rival is Utah doesn't make it so.

    In terms of basketball programs, I definitely hate both Arizona schools, Oregon and USC way more than Utah.

    But anyway, just looking for some momentum from this game. Not expecting a win by any means, but hopefully we can leave SLC with some good takeaways leading into the post-season.

    Of course, win this and our seed will likely be around a 7 or better, depending on the conference tourney. So...lets go buffs!!

    My hate priorities are
    1. Arizona
    2. Oregon

    and everyone else is meh. That said, I petition that we call them Putah's.

    Lol I was thinking the same thing. I actually like Utah and usually root them against other PAC schools. As our mountain peer, travel buddy, and fellow PAC addition; there's something about being perceived as a fly over state and being ignored by most of the country that makes me respect what they've accomplished in football and basketball thus far

    Arizona definitely takes the cake as their arrogance is on par with the true expletive ****braska and I think there is actually some bad blood between the teams.

    ASU doesn't have enough fans to be taken seriously (see empty stadiums on national TV with consistent Top 25 teams and the largest student body in the country)

    Oregon and USC? Meh they only recently became good and blow us out in football consistently so not much there

    Whatever the rivalry status, this could be a break-through game for our program. We've beaten the top P12 teams (ranked) except for Utah. It would be a record for regular season wins. And beating really good teams on the road is what really good teams do.

    If Tad and the Buffs are ready to make a statement that we're moving to the next level, now is the time.

    Utes favored by 12. Yikes. Hope we come to play tonight. The time to get into postseason mode is now

    Not surprised. Far more concerned with seeding for P12 tourney. Really hope we're on the CAL/Oregon side as we are now & have Utah/AZ on the other side of the bracket.

    It's a large line for a 21 win side to be an underdog by. It'd usually be more like 8, IMO. Of course, CU losing by 12+ would not at all shock me unless our road form changes. As for the seeding, that top 4 is nasty. Cal is hitting their stride. We're going to have a tough go of it no matter what. Hopefully Oregon holds on at USC to at least give us the 5.

    I think the **** just means Utah is a 4-star team, right?

    Now that Oregon gave us the help we needed by locking up the 5 seed, there is really nothing to lose. Win and we give ourselves a shot at the 4 seed (the scenario of our tiebreaker with Cal if we're both 11-7 slips my mind) and bump ourselves up a seed or so in the Big Dance. Lose and we get to beat Wazzu to pick up win 22. Hope to see the Buffs sharp tonight.

    Arizona is going to have the home crowd & for me, Utah is our toughest opponent. Obviously, they're all strong but unless Cal loses to ASU & we beat Utah then we're looking at facing AZ in the quarterfinals.

    Remember when Pitt put the zone on us in 2014 and it was game over almost from the start? I'm afraid of that happening tonight, and I'm really afraid of it happening in the tournament. Need something from the guards to take the pressure off Scott.

    I can't see Pitt's name without having visions of Scott getting the ball in the paint and being hounded to half court. The stuff of nightmares

    "Watching" on ESPN Gamecast... Both teams seem to be struggling to score. Is it good defenses or poor offensive offenses?

    Just weren't hitting shots until about the 5 minute mark. Then it kinda exploded.

    Did Utah borrow their uniforms from an intramural team or something?

    I had to stop watching. They're hurling line drives from about 8 feet out because of the post defense. Thankfully the yoots are jacking low percentage shots and we're getting some rebounds otherwise the slaughter would be on. Instead it's just a small boat race.

    Thanks for the updates, folks. Once it looks positive I might have the stomach to turn the game back on.

    I'd like to think this is great D by both teams, but my goodness.

    Buffs offense: Chuck ball in the direction of the basket. Just don't get blown out tonight, gentlemen.

    What a weird ****ing game.

    Also, tackling is okay (mostly permitted by both teams).

    All contested out of bounds go to Utah.
