Bisonic, here is my take

1) Boyle is a good coach, but not a great coach. After all this time, we are still not a Top-25 program, and Boyle has had plenty of time to get us there.

2) Every time I watch a Pac-12 game, I feel like the other team has better talent than we do. It's about the Jimmys and the Joes! Boyle needs to recruit at a higher level, particularly when it comes to 6-8 power forwards. We have been woefully inadequate in this area, season after season.

3) I do think there are better coaches out there (I'd take Mick Cronin in a heartbeat), but it's always such a roll of the dice changing coaches - particularly at Colorado. The CU job is unique, not only for basketball, but also for football. Boyle's record is similar to that of Gary Barnett, who took the Buffs to a bowl game almost every year. But fans carped about the 7 or 8 win seasons, and that we should "aspire to greatness." Well, that was FOUR head coaches and 15+ years ago, and CU football hasn't been worth a ding since Barnett was unceremoniously let go.

In conclusion, I think Boyle needs to shake up his coaching staff big-time and bring in some bulldog recruiters and also a top assistant who knows offense. That would be my advice going forward.

A very disappointing season, overall. Wright4 and Battey were the only players who showed improvement, in my mind. The rest of the team took a step back. Tyler Bey, in particular, was better as a sophomore.

Dallas Walton's injury turned out to be devastating. He had shown some real flashes of potential for greatness before the ACL tear. Hopefully he can finally get his game back next season, and then be awarded a medical redshirt for an extra season.

What will Bey and Wright4 do now? Certainly this is not the way they wanted to end their careers. If they decide to come back, next year's team looks interesting. Barthelemy as a complement to Wright4 may finally give us the backcourt we need.

Anyway, chins up, Buff fans!
