    Thanx to all of you. You certainly deserved this last run of success after all you've been through.

    BIG thanks to all.

    To think where we were in basketball when AD and Nate stepped on campus...

    ...and thanks to Carlon for the gutsy effort this year. Fighting off a slump is never easy, but you did it in the biggest way possible my man. Those dunks will always be favorites.

    Yup thank you. Couldn't have done this without y'all. Thanks for laying the foundation for the program under Boyle and enjoy what you helped build. Once a Buff, always a Buff.

    Sad to see them go but I'll never forget what they did for this program.

    More specifically Nate, Dufault, and Eckloff, who had to go through the agony of losing for 2 straight years. They stuck through the thick and thin and none of this would have been possible without them. It's a shame we had to go out like this, but I'm still damn proud of these guys.

    This last month has provided moments none of us will forget.

    Best wishes in the next chapter of your lives. May your degree and the experience in the athletic department prepare you for the real world and serve you well.

    Go Buffs.

    Seniors,

    You guys have help build a foundation for buff basketball success for years to come. I for one will not forget the beginning! Thanks for a great ride.

    agree with all posts in this thread...the c-unit, tad's coaching, and the senior leadership helped us turn the corner, the university and athletic department are showing commitment to the program, and the fan base is growing.

    i'm seeing a bright future in cu athletics!

    What a run those guys had. It was so fun. We're gonna miss them, especially Carlon's dunks and Dufault's guts.

    Not only a big thank you for everything on the court, but I cannot think of one off the court incident from any of these guys. Way to represent this university well and good luck to all of you.

    I hope you posted this while doing blow of a hookers ass. Or Tor... well same thing. Your in Vegas for god sakes you should be committing the equivalent to off the court incidents, not posting about how good the players were for not committing them.

    Pai Gow? Sounds like you were trying to beat asian Henry at his own game. Not smart.

    Big thanks to all four of these guys. Hopefully they will be remembered as key parts of the foundation of a dominant college basketball program. While Carlon Brown may not have suffered through the lean times the others did, his contribution of skill and senior leadership was extremely important.

    I will always have fond memories of this PAC 12 championship season and tournament run. All four of you should be proud and I wish you well in your endeavors post-CU.

    Thank you for one of the greatest rides I've ever been on as a fan.

    Pac-12 Champions

    For the rest of your life, that will be something you carry with you. Champions.
