Oh boy, this could be ugly. Chance for someone, anyone, to rise to the occasion
Jaron Hopkins is going to do freakish things tonight.
Need big time contributions from Gordon, Miller, and DT if we plan on keeping this close. Deathly afraid Tarczewski, Ashley, and RHJ may have their way with us in the paint.
Don't be afraid of it. Plan for it. It is going to happen. This game is going to be ugly.
Well watch as long as I can
Scott now confirmed out by tad...
It's not a CU athletic season without some sort of injury curse. Is it bad luck or do we not know how to deal with injuries?
Just get this over with and get them healthy. We need them for @ ASU/Washington.
Agreed - we have a better chance of W against those 2.
Tad is all about sacrificing this game to not **** up the ASU road win possibility. It's smart, but it also smarts to be in this position.
Gonna be ugly on the glass tonight. Even if Ski goes for 30, I don't see how our Buffs don't get overwhelmed.
If we lose by less than 30 I'll consider it one of those awesome 'moral' victories.
Ski might score 40 tonight. Of team total 42.
Line has quickly gone up to +16
Dom, JHop, Wes, Tory...... Time to step up.
And I'm sure tonight's announcers will have some opinions on things-
Worried a lot more about Jhop than the others. Zona is gonna be going for TO's nonstop. Besides, it's the forwards that are going to get a lot more minutes.
Gonna relax, pour a tall single malt, and watch this one with no expectations while hoping I get an amazing surprise.
All we need is another slaughter on national TV. If we beat the spread, it's a goddamn victory.
Finally a game on the main ESPN so the whole country can watch......damn
As long as we look better than UCLA against Kentucky - yes my expectations are that low. That being said I am happy XJ and Scott are out, it is the right call and Tad is making decisions for the good of the season. I just hope the extra couple of days are enough to make a difference for those two.
Didn't think we could win at zona with all hands on deck. Now, just see if we can stay within 20.I hope scott and XJ can get back asap. Don't need these injuries lingering rest of the season.
Askia will take the game over and be superman. We know how that goes on the road....
What is XJ's status? How long is he expected to be out for?
AZ will be (justifiably) overconfident given all the Buff shortcomings (injuries, road record). If they take the night off it could be closer than expected. But the 'return from Oregon' might counter this advantage....
We will seen what this team will look like in the future a little bit tonight. Go Buffs!
Tad hires a hypnotist and convicted ski that this is a tournament game. He drops a 50 burger.
