Great points as usual. I like that we have a few days between KU and Elon. It lets the emotion of the win fade, and lets the boys get their heads back on right.
I expect the Keg to be rocking on Friday night as students and fans show up to celebrate the team, the KU win, and the Top 25 ranking.
A letdown would be a huge surprise to me. There will be energy in the building and the Buffs will take the next step on the journey by moving to 10-1.
The only thing I see affecting the crowd is that Final Exams start Saturday morning.
It's a bigger concern on how that impacts the players on the team.
I am sure they are able to get theirs rescheduled. Advantages of having Athletics on having its own exam proctors.
I'm definitely concerned about a letdown here in terms of crowd support.
Edited to make a bit more sense, had two thoughts coming together at once.
Athletics can request that teachers let them proctor exams to avoid interference with athletic department activities. I bet them having a game Friday evening would be good enough excuse to have the exams proctored later in the week.
I think they have a kid from Colorado as a starting guard that averages 12 points per game and nails treys at over 50%. As a team they are in the top 20 in fg. percentage. These little schools love the upset. Buffs need to stay in form and avoid a let down.
Did Elon schedule this game for that reason? Many schools like to schedule road games for that reason.
They have 2 Colorado kids
Tanner Samson #3 - So. from Littleton (Regis Jesuit)
Ryan Winters #32 - Jr. from Denver (Regis Jesuit)
I'm betting it's not a coincidence.
Is that a record for a non-major school outside of the region?
I'm even more convinced this was Elon's idea not CU's to play. Elon knows they'll have to play these kind of games, why not make it a homecoming?
Been at least 10 years, but Elon has been to Boulder before.
Not surprised, seems like a winter break game.
