    It's nice hearing people on our side nationallly. Everybody is up in arms about this.
    National media, fans of other teams, people that hate us etc.

    I just don't know if this will do any good to our recruiting. If not, who cares.

    I know what you mean. Not the circumstances we would have hoped for but it is kind of neat to turn on espn and basically be the lead story today. On mike and mike this morning they kept replaying soundbites of vitale and bilas ranting about CU not getting in. Its nice to get some national media attention, especially since its all complimentary of CU. We have built an entire army of support in the last 24 hours. Go to the KU message boards or read the comments on espn.com. Everyone is our side.

    We are getting a lot of press. Getting to MSG in the NIT is very important to keep this talk alive even though it will die down.

    So it may end up with more national talking than being in NCAA for just one round? Possible?

    Yep. Unfortunately, we probably need KSU to make a deep run (while we're still alive in the NIT) in order for CU to remain a significant topic of conversation. I can't cheer for the kittens.

    Time permitting, I intend to shoot a short note of thanx to Bilas, Vitale, and whoever else I can think of, for their support and positive comments.

    CU needs to make it to NYC or it will look like the committee made the right choice. This will be tough for the Buffs as there is a history of teams that missed the tournament perform poorly in the NIT due to disappointment. Lets hope that doesn't happen and Tad and the boys do Colorado good. Go Buffs!

    On around the horn it was mentioned 4 different times that CU beat K-State 3 times this year. Props to Woody and Tim Cowlishaw (who I think used be a CU student but graduated from another school). Can anyone confirm that?

    Except that douche Colin Cowherd. My son told me he said something like "I'm sick of Colorado's whining. I just found out they had a basketball team, like, 3 hours ago." Must......stay.......in.......control!

    Adande said" where did that get colorado?" Um, they also beat Texas and mizzou dumbass. CU needs to trounce texas southern and beat cal or ole miss. Losing at home would be a disaster. Just get to the final 4 and let it rip.

    Colin Cowherd is a douche who tries to piss people off. 90% of his drivel is intended to piss off people. He always goes so far the other way in everything that comes out of his pie hole.

    Bobby Knight was on a local radio show with Billy Packer tonight and he was praising us. He was talking about the seedings and noted there's a number of teams in the tournament who have no wins against any of the top 5 seeds but Colorado has 4. He also ripped the committee big time in general.
