I think it would be awesome for UNC. Fact of the matter is that some school is going to get that bid, and I would love to them be the ones. Gonna be a tough game against Montana though.
I have no problem with the automatic bids. They are part of what makes the NCAA tournament so great. The Buffs have the opportunity to play their way in. They need to get it done.
I'm rooting for UNC. They've earned it and this would be huge for that school.
We are our own school and situation - If we get in great, but I don't begrudge the bears a chance either.
I guess the fact that the Big XII often gets 6 teams in kind of makes it fair. And it would be nice for UNC. But I have the same issue in football when a team like Boise who play, maybe, two decent teams a year can get into a BCS game. Although, that didn't happen this year. I'm just petty.
If we don't lose to ****** teams like USF and ISU, we are not having this discussion.
The auto bids are good for the game because they give all the little guys their shot even if they do get low seeds. In fact I don't like that 2 of the auto bids got put into the play-in game in recent years, and now 4 of the auto bids will have to play in the first round in Dayton.
I'm rooting for UNC. If they get in, it is because they played their way in and won their conference championship. If we have just won the game we should have (A&M, Baylor, Oklahoma, San Fan) we wouldn't even be worried about being on the bubble right now.
Take care of our own business and we won't have any problems. I have no problem with UNC getting their bid if they earn it.
Only two of the auto bids have to play in Dayton. The other play-in game is the last two at large teams.
And as someone who spent a few years in Greeley, I'm loving having UNC & CU both as potential tourney teams.
All I can say is good for UNC. They are taking care of their business. We need to do the same.
I would be happy for UNC!
Or Oklahoma or Nebraska
I'm rooting for UNC. Good for basketball on the Front Range. Also adds another positive point to Boyle's resume for the recruiting trail since that team is all his recruits who are still running his system.
Anymore this seems to be a broken record for this program. Some terrible losses have really held them back over the years.
And GO UNC BEARS!!! :thumbsup: They've only been a D1 school for maybe 5 or 6 years I think.
Add the loss at home to ATM
It would be nice to see the state of CO get multiple bids to the tournament, especially when you see the state get shut out in years past while states like Utah or Nevada have sometimes gotten multiple bids.
Tonight's game is on ESPN2 at 9pm EST, 7 MST.
