    You don't play for invitations...sure could have confused me last year while we were advancing through the Dance, you were losing at home to Bucknell in the NIT :thumbsup:

    Advancing through the dance? I'll gladly wear the NIT hiccup, bravo on the rent-a-Carlon, but that was an MWC win and B12 blowout. I'm not buying "advancing." But participating is always fun.

    A for effort, but not sure I'd throw the Rent-A-Carlon stone there with your PG position...

    We were there. You weren't. Wipe away those Bucknell tears and deal with it.

    Wouldn't knock the MWC much either, considering your lucky 1 point win over SDSU this year and ass kicking loss to them last year.

    And FWIW, you're ripe for the picking in the Dance again this year. Everyone senses the weakness emitting from Sean Miller.

    He's not even a rental. Carlon at least had a lease agreement. Lyons is practically an hourly motel.

    The Sean Miller that's been to one fewer Sweet 16 in eight full seasons as a head coach than Colorado's entire basketball existence?

    You count Xavier as part of your success, that's cute. I'm talking about the Sean Miller that has been to the Dance 1/3 times in Tucson and can barely protect your home court under him these days. Nice work against Cal.

    See I have to disagree with you there. I really think it was bad work against Cal.

    Pachoops,

    There's this scene in the book The Stand, in which the Walking Dude's Bride sees his evil junk for the first time. She screams, and goes within herself, in shock, and never speaks again--a mindless incubator for the demon creature that grows inside her.

    When you look deeply into the demon horse's crazy eyes, you'll almost certainly get the "top ten" treatment you desire. Careful what you ask for.

    pachoops comes with some solid program history smack, but fails to avoid the quicksand of zona's recent history in a sad but entertaining demise.

    Oh come on now. I had to promise myself not to use the Lute/Russ/KO/Miller tale as a lead-in anymore. Do you know how exciting it was to go to the Elite Eight in 2011? Well...I guess that's an unfair question but take it from me...awesome!

    It's as if the speed of reality has outpaced the reverberations of smack, echoing from a distant, pre-NIT era.

    I dunno, it just seems like it's been a long time since Arizona was a number one ranked seed that inevitably collapsed in the first or second round of the NCAA. Those were days!

    Reality is hard to understand when I start to say "scoreboard" only to wake up 15 hours later wearing nothing but tattered jean shorts in the center of what looks like was the path of a large tornado and/or battle surrounded by empty bottles of booze and "00.1" carved into the ground and highlighted with what appears to be the blood of innocents.

    well, we will never know for sure, as no one was around to do any talking. I did find the remains of a "pac 12 officials" patch last time this happened. That's the only clue I can come up with.

    The reality is our team has won a Pac-12 Tourney title AND been to THE Dance more recently than yours has. :thumbsup:

    Reality is I'm grossly confounded by what Darth and Orr are talking about, but I have an idea...

    Those were the days. If Lute had an elite team, you could win your bracket by predicting that they'd flame out. If Lute had only a decent team, you could win your bracket by predicting that they'd go on a run. It was like clockwork. Lute was awesome, but the weird thing about his resume is that the title and the Final Fours are in the wrong years.

    Enough about ancient history, though. Buffs are kings of the Pac-12 mountain now. We may as well be talking about those Gail Goodrich UCLA squads.

    What's awesome-r is our 2012 Pac 12 championship banner. Look for it when you get there. You might not recognize it because Arizona isn't familiar with winning a Pac 12 championship, so here's a picture of it.

    ...and exactly what laundry do you get to hang up in the rafters for a S16 cup of tea...? "cloth" diapers?
