    Colorado -- 4-6 overall, 3-4 Pac ...if you count the Tucson cheat it's 5-5, 4-3
    Arizona -- 6-1 overall, 4-1 Pac
    Oregon -- 4-3 overall, 3-2 Pac
    UCLA -- 3-1 overall, 3-1 Pac
    Arizona State -- 3-2 overall, 2-2 Pac
    Stanford -- 3-5 overall, 2-4 Pac
    Cal -- 4-5 overall, 3-4 Pac
    Washington -- 4-5 overall, 3-4 overall
    USC -- 2-6 overall, 2-3 Pac

    Yep. Plus we're 3-0 on neutral courts this year. Buffs are a great team at home. I think sometimes we over-criticize them on the road because of how much they drop off. But the rule of thumb is that young players and reserves generally play poorly on the road. We pretty much only have young players among those who log a lot of minutes.

    Also, one of our road losses was actually a win.

    Not to state the obvious, but this was MAJOR progress for this team to get a the road sweep. I think this was the week that broke the road monkey once and for all. The road will always be brutal and we'll always lose some tough ones, but in coming seasons it's going to be about finding a way to do 5-4 on the road or better in the Pac. We can start beating mid-tier teams away with some consistency. The win at Oregon followed by Oregon State tonight frankly shows me far more about this team's maturing than any big single home win would do. Need to cap it off with a win in the Bay Area.

    It's nights look tonight I look back fondly on that day in early March 2010, when I was screaming and hollering when the Buffs finally broke 'the streak' by beating Nebraska 81-68 in Lincoln.
