    Looks like it's getting lost in the men's win a little bit, but Linda Lappe and the Buffs won their first big 12 game today against #17 Iowa State. Huge upset for the Buffs, as they were without arguably their best player, Chucky Jeffery. I think we have two excellent basketball coaches.

    Hell yeah!

    This was possibly a breakthrough win for the Lady Buffs. They're getting tougher. 10-6 now with 13 to play plus at least 1 in the Big 12 tourney.

    We need 5 more wins for NIT consideration. That would be quite an accomplishment and step forward for this program.

    Really impressive win for the Lady Buffs -- ISU is a very good program. Coach Lappe is an Iowa native I believe, so this must be a special win for her! Keep up the great work

    In the Ft Worth paper this morning, there was a sub-header with the line "Colorado wins a stunner.". Good stuff, Lady Buffs.

    I just got slapped by a poster on Rivals for saying "Lady Buffs".

    I didn't mean it in a demeaning way (and I'm sure you guys didn't either), but we should drop the "Lady" thing. We wouldn't say "Gentleman" Buffs to refer to the men.

    I'm going to go with "Buff women" to describe/ differentiate them from this point forward.

    More importantly, that was one hell of a good win for the program. It would be HUGE if we could follow it up with a road win at OSU this week. They're 0-3 in the conference and have been crushed in each of their games (@ KSU, vs TAMU, @ Baylor). This is a game we can win. Getting to .500 in conference play and breaking through on the road. Let's do it Tuesday!

    I don't see anything demeaning about saying Lady Buffs. Some schools even have specific "lady logos" - an example is Tennessee with their "Lady Vols" logo

    I believe it is because that in certain contexts (i.e., "little lady"), the word was used to demean women. In those contexts, it is offensive. But in most contexts, the word "lady" isn't offensive to the vast majority of women or feminists, just as the word "gentleman" isn't offensive to most men. And I do see the merit of the argument that all the athletes are simply "Buffs". Last thing I want to do is unintentionally offend someone when I'm just trying to talk sports even if I don't think I said anything wrong. I hate these conversations and would sooner avoid them. I'm just going to choose to avoid saying "Lady Buffs" because it doesn't cost me anything to just say "Buff" and to add the "women" descriptor when I need to differentiate. You guys and gals can do what you want.

    Can we talk basketball?

    fair enough. I would tell them to grow a pair/some gonads and to feel free to call the male bball team the gentleman buffs. But then, that sort of attitude is why I am so popular. :smile2:

    I was thinking "nappy headed buffs" is effective and slightly less offensive than "hoes"
