I could have answered this about 10 different ways, but nothing trumps the home game against Arizona.
Eventually I would answer the home game against Arizona. But right now? Drexel. LET'S TIP THE BALL
Zona, then Utah home, then UCLA home. huge games. This could be tad's worst home record yet.
UCLA. This is the year we finally break through against those goobers. I don't want to miss that.
I answered Arizona, but I'm probably irrationally excited for the Tip Off marathon game against Auburn. I expect an epic performance from a very loaded C-Unit.
I picked home opener in Pac 12 versus UCLA.....we need to get a win against that program and this might be our best opportunity
voted Auburn since (1) I know the probability of a conflict coming up for that one are about 0 (2) Coors should be crazy with the 11PM tip and I've never been to a game played that late.
My initial thought was UCLA, but honestly it's probably Drexel. I need to see CU basketball, and I need to see a win in the worst way.
Arizona at home, but losing to UCLA again at home would leave me furious.
Looks like Drexel lost a good deal of firepower, but they could hang around for a half.
Why isn't CU playing in the national championship game a poll option?
It is. It is called Other.
Gonna drive over from Cruces for that one! RollTad
I picked auburn because it's probably going to be a pretty fun time....Looking fwd to staying down in boulder that night.
I may look into going up to Laramie for the UW game. The new renovations at AA look pretty awesome. A lot of the improvements there could be carried over to the CEC down the road.
Drexel is the type of team that drives us insane. I'm nervous about that one (shocker).
We'll win, but it may be a case of some late foul shots making a win seem larger than it really was. Can't forget them punching Zona in the mouth last year before eventually folding.
By insane, do you mean Wyoming-level insanity? Never look forward to that game.
They're very slow and methodical. The last time they were in the top 200 in pace was 2009 (and they were #199) and their ORtg is always pretty solid. They were 105 last year, and 153 the year before, but the previous 7 years they averaged a ranking of 42nd in the nation.
They are so frustrating. They are the anti-Tad on offense. Watching us slow down to their pace irritates me to no end .
Arizona, at home, all the way.
i may be headed up too
ESPN v. Auburn really starts the year for me. That cheater Bruce Pearl and a major conference on a major network. Gotta love the opportunity that lies before CU here.
Bring on the Kitty Cats. Either date.
Tip off marathon game against Auburn and Bruce Pearl is gonna be nuts.
Beat the Pokes in Laramie.
Make it 3 in a row against the lambs.
PLEASE beat UCLA.
My top 5(6)
SIAP but there is a "Bandit Bundle" for UWyo vs Boise St football and UWyo vs CU basketball tickets package deal for $45. Going to have a lovely November day in Laramie.
Auburn may also be a good deal better than some think. He's already upgraded that squad in a big way with transfers. Not a great front court, though. Should be able to damage them there.
Diamond Head final
Agreed. Whether it's the Shockers or the Fuskers, no game in the OOC means more to get to & win. Really no opportunities before that for CU to make some national noise. Obviously, plenty of opportunities afterwards.
