    That doesn't rule him out from returning to ASU though...

    Wait. Did I see that we are expected to start the season ranked in the top 25 next year? If that's true it would be huge.

    I felt like that locker room was brand new, and we just toured it as it opened

    In other news, I feel a bit older today

    Only preseason ranking I saw us in is NBC Sports that has us at #19. All the other ones I saw don't have us in the top 25, except ESPN has us "next in line." Would be amazing to somehow start the season ranked.

    The NBC folk probably just looked at returning minutes and threw CU in the poll, without really knowing anything about the team. It would be nice to have some pre-season recognition, but I'd be completely shocked if CU is receiving more than a small handful of votes, if any, when the first official pre-season polls are released.

    I'm one of those idots who thinks we're better off if we don't start ranked. Chip on the shoulder, earn it, yada yada. I'm afraid if too much pre-season cred.

    I think a majority have us on the "just outside, but keeping an eye on" area. We're kind of the basketball hipster preseason pick.

    LOVE IT. Tad getting that home and home is HUGE.

    Also calling dibs on a pair of tickets when CU releases those tickets to season ticket holders in a season or two.

    This news is worthy of a drop in. Gonna be tough to keep the hype train from getting out of control before November. Beat the Squawks.

    just noting that December 7 will be the weekend of the football CCGs.

    since the Buffs will play theirs on Friday, good planning should get fans from Santa Clara to Lawrence in time for tip.

    We might only have a hundred fans in Lawrence. Most KU fans can't even get tickets to a game in Lawrence. It's a big reason why so many of them historically traveled to the CU game in Boulder. For a lot of years, it was cheaper for them to buy our season ticket package to see a KU game than it was to buy 1 KU home game.

    Didn't we kind of break the system too and find a loophole when we played there a few years ago? I remember people finding a way through the ticketing system early or something.

    That will be an epic day...CU MBB wins in Lawerence and then the football team wins the Pac-12 Championship on their way to the college football playoffs. One can dream can't they?
