    Just tweeted by Skip Bayless:

    On a neutral floor, Colorado could beat roughly a third of teams that got bids. All-time robbed.

    Seriously, this feels worse than my virginity being robbed by a Texan chick.

    I love the Buffs. My wife and I attended countless games through the years. I want nothing more than to see them do well. I just don't agree with the "we got hosed" comments that are going around. CU has no one to blame but themselves. How many teams do you know of that get the the dance winning only two conference road games?

    I still believe the NCAA is ruining the Dance by bringing in weaker teams. There are nineteen teams with 10 loss records in the tourney. It's a disgrace.

    I respectfully disagree based upon the comparative qualities of those that went instead of us.

    How many conference road games did mizzou win? Oh ya 1 against ISU.

    and they may have a stronger SOS but they played EVERY game at home and lost the only really tough one. Only road game they played on the road was Oregon. Sorry I can't take a team seriously who wouldn't go and play teams away from home. No wonder their OOC looks so good.

    Mizzou probably shouldn't be in there either.

    basically, you think the tourney should be limited to 32 teams? I agree.

    The thing working for Mizzou is all their losses came from teams in the top 100 in the RPI.

    Our losses would have all been RPI top 100 too if we played every OOC at home.

    Fine with mizzou getting into a 68 team field. its the teams worse than them that are in and not us that is hard to comprehend.

    I think mizzou did enough to get in. My point is that every piece of logic that someone uses to justify why we are not in ends up being proved wrong every single time. There is no logical or rational explanation other than Beebe is on the committee and there is way to much politics involved anymore.

    Like I said earlier, I'm upset CU didn't get in. I just don't see the point in blaming everyone but ourselves for how things turned out. CU knew how important the ISU game was in Ames, yet they still **** the bed. Same thing in San Fran. And dont get me started on the losses to OU and Nebraska. :pissed:

    The way this went down I honestly dont know if that win in Ames would have changed anything.

    It wasn't just one 'piece of logic' that CU got left out. It was all of them. Weak OOC conference schedule, the unexplainable losses to OU, kNU, Harvard, San Fran, ISU. The two conference wins on the road. Dan Beebe.

    If the NCAA just left the Tourney at 64 teams, we wouldn't be having this discussion. We'd all be happy with how Tad did with an undersized squad, and would be looking forward to kicking ass in the NIT.

    It's not that. If we'd taken care of business, we probably would have been a 5 or 6 seed considering we were the 3rd or 4th best team in the Big 12.

    The issue is that every bubble team's resume had warts on it, but if you picked 3 objective criteria, ranked them in importance, and applied them to every one of the bubble teams... I don't believe that there's a single mix they could come up with that would have left the Buffs out.

    That leaves non-objective. If you go with "eyeball test", we're in. So the only thing left is "politics". And that's why we're not in the tourney.

    I don't think so. Even for the tourney with 64 teams, I still think we would be in.

    I'm happy with the job Tad has done. Even if we don't show well in the NIT. This is a great season to build off of. I'm excited with the direction this program is heading.

    this. valdez is tearing at Cu's resume, but if he did the same to the other teams, it would be far worse.

    Funny thing is USF ended up losing in their conference tourney to gonzaga on a chris webber timeout just like we lost to them under similar circumstances.

    ****ing hell.

    The worst part about this is that we played up or down to the competition and could actually have made a run in the tourney. Losing Knuston and Higgins is really going to hurt. I hope Alec sticks around.

    BTW, Skip Bayless is a douchebag. Is that something we can all agree on? :smile2:

    no, seriously, you need to start making sense, cause right now all your doing is spouting non-responsive one liners attacking me personally. That doesn't help you win the argument, that makes you look like a douche.

    It's always pretty lame to get in on the "we suck less than the other teams" argument, or the "Dan Beebe f-d us, even though the B12 would've made money off of us going to the NCAA Tournament. But go ahead and have at it.
