    Thanks Bebe. Good read.

    I especially liked this part...

    "When Coach Lappe came in, she was that connection to what the program had been," senior forward Meagan Malcolm-Peck recently told espnW. "That was important."..."Obviously, you can overdo it," Lappe said. "This is a new era, after all. We're not trying to be exactly like one of those teams, but we want these players to take pride in all of the people and teams that came before us."

    This is where I think Embree maybe over did it with the football program.

    Anyway, now if CU could just win at least 2 in Cali!!!

    Lets go Buffs!!!

    Something special is happening with this program.

    Watching them play, the biggest thing I'm seeing this year is that they have learned to trust each other. On defense, their rotations are so much better now since they trust that the help is going to be there. On offense, they go about 10 deep with players who can score in double figures on any given night. So they don't hesitate to share the ball. The other thing with this trust is that when your teammates trust you, it makes you play for them and not want to let them down. All this feeds on itself and builds.

    Chucky is pretty much a superstar, but that's not what excites me. It's not about 1 player leading a run this year. It's about a team and a program. This is built to last.

    How big of a loss is Chucky? Isn't she pretty much all we lose?

    I wonder what it would take to get me interested in women's basketball.

    The Malcolm-Peck sisters also graduate this year.

    Chucky is a huge loss. I haven't seen very many players fill up the stat sheet like she does. She's basically leading the team in points*, rebounds, assists and steals. That's crazy good. There is a good chance that if CU finishes among the Top 3 in the conference that she'll win Pac-12 POTY.

    *Virtual tie for first in points (0.1 ppg behind Arielle Roberson).

    Give it a shot. These Buffs are on the verge of something special and deserve more interest/support.

    I have given it a shot. I just can't really get interested. I wonder what it would take. A final four run?

    I don't think a Final Four run is in the cards this season, but might be in the near future.

    Women play a purer form of the game than men do. No, it isn't as fast. No, they don't dunk. Those are the reasons I prefer the women's game over the men's game.

    I'm sure someone would find this to be a travesty, but I think if they lowered the rim a foot it could be awesome.

    Very true. As a basketball lover, it's enjoyable to see it. Same game, different form.

    That is what I like about women's basketball.

    Do NOT lower the rims.

    I don't agree with much of what Geno says or does and I know he said that. He was slammed by many coaches and players for that.

    John Wooden on women's basketball:

    "The top women athletes play a more pure game than the men," Wooden was quoted as saying. "They play below the rim and fundamentally better."

    He said women's basketball was "a beautiful game."

    This is how I see women's basketball: a beautiful game and the players are fundamentally better. I would not mind seeing a 10 second rule to get the ball in the front court but otherwise our game needs no changes. It's fine the way it is. Some teams pack them in. CU did during it's glory days and can again.

    I am not a soccer fan, but I'm sure that is true.

    Me either...except for my stud 12 year old daughter's team. These girls are terrific. Incredibly skilled. The boys rely on athletic skill only.

    Probably correct. Was trying to say that girls soccer and basketball players are more skilled than boys.....what do I know.

    Stanford is a truly elite women's program. CU is not very far away.
