    Why don't they play back controversial calls on the video boards? I know the refs screwed up (especially the bald one a couple games back who couldn't make a call in our favor) when I am yelling at them but I would like to see how badly they blew the call.

    Haven't been to a game at another stadium so I don't know if it is just us or perhaps an NCAA rule.

    Might be a B12 rule - was at the game vs. Baylor last weekend and they didn't show any replays of controversial calls on their video boards and there were plenty of them.

    do the same thing at football games. i assume it may be league policy but the reaction from the fans may be the reason as well....

    the wall murals need to go. they are a nice idea but look more at home in a city public library than the home floor of a 20 win basketball team. hang black banners with the CU logo on it on either side of the scoreboard....anything to make less of the total visual surface poured concrete.

    the new ribbon boards are not in anyone's sight-line. i guess advertisers pay for it, but seems like a waste of money to me. they don't enhance the game experience at all unless you are on the top 20 rows of the upper section.
