    This was true even with Spencer healthy, but doubly so now.

    So far this year, we haven't seen the normal defensive intensity from a Tad team. Maybe it's the new rules making it harder. Maybe it's the youth. I don't care.

    This team needs to step up and defend the way the 2011-12 team did. Even without Spencer, it's more talented than that squad. If it can find that same level of grit, this team can play .500 or better ball in the Pac-12 and advance in the Dance.

    In this lost decade of CU athletics, pathetic University leadership, Tad has been the only man to break the CU curse. Tad will get it done. Roll ****ing Tad.

    I'm frustrated we have such length and athleticism yet can't cover a person on the three point line. We crash too hard and don't get out on shooters well enough. The main benefit may be the rebounding, but we can't keep giving up 7 threes to opposing players.
