Really big opportunity for the Buffs tonight. Type of win that silences the haters and doubters.
If the Buffs win tonight (and follow with a win at USC), I think that CU has to be ranked in the Top 25 and looked at as a 5 or 6 seed by the Committee. It also puts CU in great position for a Top 4 conference finish.
A loss doesn't actually hurt much except for conference standings, but not even too badly with that, so I think the team can play loose tonight.
Let's get one tonight Buffs! Show up, play lock down D, hit the boards hard, knock down some jump shots and feed the post! Show the bball world we have the talent now in the program to adjust and compete.
By the way, what other year could we have possibly lost a guy like Spence, Fletch, and maybe Wes and still expect our team to get to 20+ wins? Let me just say never in the history of the program have we had this talent and it is only getting better with each class. #RollTad #GoBuffs
Were gonna win (if wes plays)
This is one of those no-stress games for me. Don't expect to win, so I won't be too upset about a loss. If we get blown out that would suck though. Win here and that's huge.
a sweep in LA wont put is in the top 25, but i'd sleep a lot better on selection sunday eve if we took both of these.
No Wes tonight according to Brian Howell
Mark Johnson just said it is a game time decision but they do not expect him to play. not final yet. Limping getting off of the plane and not likely
I assume we are getting Bill Walton tonight since the game is on ESPN2?
Not so sure, we got no votes in the AP.
Believe so, thought I saw the press release earlier this week.
Good news is with no other game on ESPN2 because of the snowouts, I don't see how this game doesnt start on time/in it's entirety.
Over/Under Grateful Dead mentions tonight by Bill Walton?
Fletcher warming up with the team. Not expected to play, but still great to see.
Does that include quotes of lyrics in which he does not specifically mention the Dead, but which many of us recognize are in fact from GD songs?
If so ... I say 12. :rolling_eyes:
At least one "I'll shine my light through the cool, Colorado rain"
OK, this could be fun. Post 'em as you hear 'em, I will too. I'd say, let's make it a drinking game, but we're talking about the Dead...
I'm watching delayed on DVR, so won't check until after.
Interesting take by Bruinsnation.com I can't wait for the meltdown
I hate when the buffs start this way...
Pretty much the worst start we could have wanted.
2 oRebs on 1st stand, turnover on o, UCLA 3, CU brick from 3.
Get it out of the system early, I guess.
need to wake up!
They are so damn big.
I really hope at USC we deliver the first punch on the road for once.
Not going to get much love from Walton on the call tonight
Need to get out of the zone.
Need to settle in. Keep getting it to Josh.
One of those games when the announcers talk about how CU is getting killed and then notice the Buffs have kept the score within 2 or 3 possessions.
More energy now in man.
