    Some recent highlights:

    2011 NIT Final Four
    2012 Pac-12 Champions

    Maybe some stuff on the players coached, especially Alec being a Lottery Pick.

    Something about the nationally-ranked 2012 recruiting class, too.

    Might make sense to include something about the coaching staff he has assembled.

    This should rep the program to fans, researchers (media will use this to prep for games), and recruits who are checking us out.

    Do you have time? It sounded like you've got a ton of school work this week.

    But if you can swing it, I'm pretty sure your rep stick will be longer than Junc's by the time we're all done gleebing you.

    CUBuffs.com usually has pretty good bios for our coaches so you could probably do some cut and pasting there and I would also google Tad Boyle Northern Colorado and you could probably get a link to an old school web site with some more bio info and some school records while a coach there but I'm sure I'm just stating the obvious. Good luck and I think it's a good idea. The Denver Post or Daily camera might also have some old articles on his time at UNC as well

    You can modify it if you know how many kids he has. I didn't feel like doing that research.

    I'm making a "Tad's kid dancing" t-shirt for you. I expect you to wear it to all games next year.

    I updated this a little bit this morning. I haven't got to the CU part yet. I will continue to work on this when I have time this week.

    Hey Nik, sounds like you need to take your rep back from Tini and give it to JG.

    Rugged: can I get approval on wording for the wiki project?

    I was thinking:

    Tad's youngest son Pete is a crowd favorite for his dancing mop routines he does on the under the North basket during TV timeouts.

    I just added some to the CU section, it actually looks somewhat respectable now. I probably need to go back and reference a bunch of it, but that can come later.

    Tini - feel free to add/edit away.

    I just read through it and it's looking so much better. Great work, guys. Thanks, jg, for getting this rolling.

    I think it just needs a few typos cleaned up, maybe his photo from cubuffs.com inserted, and a description of the past season.

    Also, there should probably be a link to the wiki page on CU men's basketball. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_Buffaloes_men's_basketball

    I wouldn't say crowd favorite, I'd say controversial figure.

    Last paragraph in the CU section has a couple grammatical errors, but nonetheless very nice.

    thx, i cleaned up my sh*T&y grammar and some typos. included a link to the cu mens bball wiki page, added a small section (needs to be expanded) on last season.

    also added a "fluff" section based on increased fan interest under tad.

    will work on adding a pic.
