    I am getting sick of hearing how angry the players are about post season losses.

    Those two were the immediate ones that popped into my head. Although I could also see Wes there.

    Fair. I am perfectly ok with them being pissed off about losing their last game. No matter when that game happens. Whether it be the round of 64 or in the final four. They should always feel like they can be better.

    Yeah it just seems like we hear the same thing from the team after losing in the first round but it doesn't change much the next year.

    But they are getting to the first round of the tournament. Sure all hope that team continues to go to NCAAs and win games once there.

    Hmm. I thought this is a "News" thread, not a snarky opinion thread.

    Great article about Coach Boyle.

    http://bsndenver.com/boyle-not-done-building-yet/

    With the roster he has returning, and the recruiting success, it really does feel like Tad's tenure is just getting started. Really excited for this basketball season.

    Not Dave Plati, but according to my crack research, the last -and only- time the Buffs have made a bowl AND received an NCAA tourney berth in the same school year was 1996/97.

    The Chauncey-led basketball team beat Indiana, then lost to North Carolina in the second round.

    Koy Detmer and Darrin Chiaverini led the #8 football Buffs to a 33-21 win against #13 Washington.

    This is more than a Renaissance, it's a revolution.

    It takes a while to write 25,000 words. He probably started it the second last year's was published.

    Should we start copywrite checking him against his previous years? Make sure he's not rewriting anything? I want 25,000 original words!

    That's the best writing I've seen Whelan do. Really well written.

    we going zone!? And I'm hoping that talk of Dom is predictive, not hopeful. Tad plays the media game with his players pretty well. If he's pumping Dom up...

    Glad that Tad is willing to adjust and use more zone this season. Could be very effective when CU has 3 wings on the court.

    My take is that he truly believes Dom is greatly improved.
