Some teams, like UCLA, are using the "bye" week as an opportunity to play a nationally televised game with a nonconference opponent (in this case, UCLA vs St John's on CBS). Coach Boyle would like to see the Buffs face a similar "bye-week" schedule in the future, saying yesterday: "I kind of wish we had (a marquee nonconference matchup) this week. I think that would be good for our league, especially with our disappointing nonconference slate." -link I hate to break it to Coach Boyle, but that kind of made-for-TV, mid-February matchup is probably out of reach for this program until it starts going to the Tournament on a regular basis. Benefit to the conference's national perception aside, it's just not going to happen. Originally posted by The Rumblings of a Deranged Buffalo Click here to view the article.
