    I think a demon from Mexico came through the border and cut a deal with the team at halftime in the pit. They gave it free reign to cause chaos in return for the comeback. I'm hoping the demon is getting bored now since it started letting us hit 3s again last night. I'm worried it's decided that letting us shoot over 50% from 3 but less than 50% from the line is hilarious and amusing.

    Battey with 14 boards off the bench. I love watching him play

    Seems like Gatling is better coming off the bench. I hope his shot's arrived to stay.

    Based on @Goose's research, no way it's come to stay. But let's hope last night was a sign that he's done not shooting when he's open. He needs that volume.

    Yep. Like Ski and King, Gatling is going to be at his best on offense when he stops thinking. That is, he can't care about the last miss or worry about a slump and he also can't have a conscience.

    I'd rather him go 1/11 on open shots then pass up open shots so Kin can take a contested 3 with under 5 seconds on the clock.

    A missed shot is just a pass to your teammates.

    Very nice showing by the men against a Cougars team that definitely doesn't have a lot of talent and was down their best player. That is exactly what CU should do at home to a team like that. The test is coming tomorrow with Washington in town. Should tell us more about this years team.

    Washington beating Utah will be added incentive (hopefully) for another strong effort against better competition.

    attendance was just over 6184 last night. Lower than for CSU, South Dakota and UIC.

    CSU has been the highest attended game of the year.

    Dark Horse is part of the experience.

    It's a college place with burgers and bar, but they'll love it. Tame enough that early so no worries about kids.

    If you want something nice, Boulder has a plethora of options -- Narrow us down a bit

    Thank!, Dark Horse looks like a good possibility, menu looks good...the 3 y/o is a meat lover, the 9 y/o more of a mac and cheeser. Does the CU Event center have much to recommend it for food, othr than snacky stuff we'll probably need to keep them interested?

    I've onl eaten there once and that was a few years ago, but i think there was an Illegal Pete's back then.

    You'll only be there 2 hours, and arriving full from the Horse -- this is low risk of being an issue.

    Southern Sun (cash only) is awesome, but not walking distance.

    Lots of food options at the CU Event Center including Scrumptious ice cream, pizza, sandwiches, etc.
