    It's astounding that tickets are still available, but this is not one of the biggest games in the keg's history.

    Top 5 team in the nation & #1 in the conference coming in -- the team we've all circled as the potential conference rival that already has some big games, controversy and smack talk.

    That's right up there in terms of big games that have been played at the Keg.

    Edit: Plus it's the last home game of the season / senior day and is also the site for ESPN's Gameday. This is absolutely huge and it's ridiculous that student tix are still available.

    It's not? Because CU has a chance to essentially punch a ticket to the dance that night (if we beat ASU first).

    What do you think there are 10 bigger games in the history of the KEG?

    It lost a little bit of it's luster when ASU beat them last week, but it's still a huge game given GameDay, #1 team in conference, the closest thing we have to a rival, Senior Day, Final home game. I'd say it's the second biggest game since 2004 at worst.

    Who cares? It shouldn't matter. This is CU's best start in ****ing history, despite the injuries. Or it is close. SHOW UP YOU ****ING PUSSIES.

    Ok the KU game this year was the biggest IMO, last years Valentine's Day rematch with UofA bigger? Which games in the last decade we're bigger? And I'm talking about at the time it happened, not after the fact.

    What is the Keg BOAT?

    KU this year was a BFD.

    UA this Saturday with ESPN Gameday coming to town is certainly HUGE.

    It's not like there's a storied history for MBB in The Keg.

    Here does this coming Saturday rank? What games from the past deserve consideration for Keg BOAT (Biggest Of All Time)?

    This.

    In fact, that should be on the promotional poster.

    It has to be top 10 (probably higher), although I didn't follow CU basketball until I got there in 2004.

    At the beginning of the year, everyone was thinking this would be the Keg BOAT, Spencer's injury changed that .

    I often disagree with Snow. Not this time. There is no excuse for the Keg to not be filled to capacity. Show up. Be loud. Kill Dick *****.

    Agreed I have been to all of those games. Texas is ranks higher than U of A last year for me.

    Maybe afterwards. But heading into the game? There was very little hype for that UT game.

    I was ****ing pumped. **** Texas. But it sure wasn't the first ever basketball gameday at CU.

    Only real hype was that it was a blackout vs #5. The CUnit had been foaming at the mouth for about a month for that UofA game.

    That's fair. Probably the game itself I found to be much more gratifying.

    Our tourney run in 2003/04 had some amazing games. We beat #3 Texas with TJ ford (I rushed the court) and #6 Kansas (broke an epic losing streak, the students chanted Harry Potter at Kirk Heinrich :lol:).

    We crushed Texas in the final home game with Billups. After the game, the crowd went nuts and they threw out a bunch of t-shirts that said "it's tourney time!" on them. That is probably my favorite Buff basketball memory.

    Few years off with Billups.

    Or now I'm realizing you're talking about that moment separately from your 2003 paragraph. So never mind.
