I guess from now on as long as we play like we should, even if we have a couple of "bad lost" in conference games, we still won't need to worry about "bubble" this year.
It gave a lot of national credibility.
Should help recruiting. We're close to taking that next step of starting to compete with Kansas and Arizona for recruits. We very well might be doing so for the 2015 class.
And it definitely puts us in position to get a nice seed in the Dance. Between this and the Harvard win, we'll have a very nice looking resume for the non-conference (assuming we take care of Elon and Georgia). A win over Oklahoma State in Vegas would actually put us in position to grab a 1 or 2 seed. Think about that.
You can bet De'Ron Davis was watching that game.
Big. Boyle won't ever admit how much it meant to him, but I think it meant more to him than anyone.
Now that we've got the KU piano off of our backs, we need to go into games in the keg with the mindset that we are the favorite in every game. We were yesterday, though hardly anyone seemed to know. All the websites lead with "upset" or "upset alert" or something along those lines.
That was a special win. Now it's time for us to act like we are an excellent program that can regularly compete with the big boys. I'd like to see us get into a good early season tourney next year, but unfortunately most spots are taken at this point.
Convincingly winning our last two home games before the conference season and a good showing in Las Vegas versus Okie State are key.
I entered CU in 2004, aside from the Pac-12 Championship(and UNLV win), I'd say this is my proudest moment as a Buff. Beating OU my senior year in football was probably my biggest as a student, but I didn't expect them to do much that year -- although getting to a bowl had me thinking the program was heading in the right direction
meh... just kansas.
24 hour rule. Enjoy the victory for 1 day, put it behind you, and then move on to the next opponent. One at a time.
With this victory, CU is on the right path to a tournament invite, but there is still are 30 more games ahead:thumbsup:. We're only a quarter of the way there. The ticket isn't punched yet.
Let's get that big win against the 6-4 Elon Phoenix. Then Okie State. Then Georgia. Then the conference slate. Then the conference tourney. Then the big dance.
CU basketball will have arrived when defeating a ranked team at the Keg no longer results in fans storming the court.
It was big. Bigger than a breadbox big.
elon should be a cake walk...they lost to metro state for ****s sake...
Big enough for me to keep the front page of the sports section in the denver post.
It is going to stay on my DVR for a long time.
:lol: Damn you Nik.
Given the direction this program is going on the floor and in recruiting, the only other win that is at this levkel is the Indiana game in the Dance in '97. The win over KU in '03 is probably a step below.
That win versus Texas a few years ago was huge.
Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com moved CU from unranked to #13 in his daily bracket. Three wins to finish the NC schedule will mean a Top 10 ranking going into conference play. Maybe just two wins as long as the loss is competitive and to Okie State.
I want to go into McKale as a top 10 against #1 zona. Walk out of there with a win in hand.
So a Buff fan since 2004, here's my rankings (off the top of my head):
3)OU in football (2007)
4)Beating Texas in 2011 (basketball)
5)UofA win last year
6)Beating Nebraska in 2007(football)
7)Beating Mizzou in 2011 (basketball)
Honorary mention for the first UofA "win" in 2013.
He has us ranked ahead of Kansas, Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, Wichita State, Gonzaga, San Diego State, Missouri and Indiana. Seems like a big win to me.
Makes me want to wear my CU gear again all over this God forsaken state, best moment since the B12CG in Dallas 2001, only took 12 years
It was huge, BUT, it didn't happen at a time when everybody was watching. It would have been a much bigger deal had it happened in the tournament. As it stands, most folks don't pay much attention to regular season non-conference basketball games. So while it's huge for the program and for CU fans, it won't do much outside of that, I'm afraid. Maybe I'm wrong.
It's been all over ESPN on both online and TV
It was really big. "Big as a babies arm" big
That's an important thing - basketball people know. Buffs will get talked up now.
Yeah I was saying that before it happened. And I speculated, it would take a lot for people to notice. And it couldn't have been much more dramatic and it was over 1/2 through SC, despite little to no BCS controversy. When the game to the end, I did notice via my Twitter feed, many non-CU fans were watching but most people cared about other things.
Buzzer beaters mean to most people an upset. They don't realize that CU was favored, led by 3 at the half, led by 9 late and controlled the game. This game shouldn't have come down to a 3 by ski late. It should have been won at the free throw line way earlier. I think this win makes PAC 12 teams worry.
I knew they were favored, it's still a big win given the circumstances -- hadn't beaten KU in 10 years, they used to take over our arena, geographically they are close by, big OOC game. Who is saying this was a major upset? ESPN had upset alert, but they probably just look at the rankings and see where they are, and where we are.
Did you see anything in my post that wasn't pro-buffs? I'm trying to hold down my exucgbere, exurenrensce estruberrene, extrraberenece, my hard on for this win? Christ!
new commit mentions it
Huge win for not only you guys, but the entire conference! I realize I am late, but congratulations!
