Wiggins has issues
He has not improved his body and is just not an alpha dog. I thought coming into the league he would be a nice #2 option on a good team. Outside of one stud season he has just not stood out. Weak rebounder, passer and defender and not a consistent shotmaker. Maybe needs a new coach. Seems like a JAG now. Williamson is an alpha.

Internet Options
We live in Boulder and based on where we live Direct TV is our only option. Direct TV doesn’t carry the PAC 12 network. We’ve used sling over the last couple of seasons and have never had a problem.
Have fun traveling!
Cheers

Need more students and others to show up at CEC
I'm concerned about meh attendance and CU being flat - hopefully I'm wrong. Each year NIT seems to have road teams win early, and hopefully that's CU at 'bama in the second round! LY NIT loved the Pac 12, but CU only P12 team in '19.

This should be a good matchup...
if both teams are morivated to play. I would like to see the Buffs put a few teams from the A 10 on the schedule. Uaually a good conference but down a bit this year. Not that I am complaining as my graduate school made it to the Dance today. Go Billikens!!

Sling and Hulu
Year before last, Sling was buggy on my iMac. Just wouldn't play sometimes. They insisted I use Chrome or their HW tools. Switched to Hulu last year. They had a hard time living up to their advertised programming. At least a few times, the game I was expecting was not on, with no warning or explanation given. If you call either of these providers, language and cultural differences are major impediments.

Not sure where you got your info on special browsers or hardware. Not “buggy” at all. I’ve watched P12N on Sling from all across the country on multiple devices with no issues.

Great time in Vegas
Fun partying with other Buff fans and got to meet Mel T and get a photo during Buff Bash before OSU game. I didn't expect CU to get past OSU, but then disappointed that they didn't beat UW. Good Buffs crowd for games, though could have been louder. Funny seeing lost looks on U of Pay fans (still tons there this year) after their Weds exit.
My wife and I saw Wright and Battey walking outside T-Mobile with a few of their family members after UW loss. Both were very personable, but tired and bummed. Proud they are both Buffs! I will be very disappointed if CU doesn't make NIT, and I know they all want to play more. I agree with Tad they deserve it based on improvement and fight in 2nd half of P12 season.

International Buffs: internet options?
Will be overseas this fall. What are the best options for tracking the team via laptop?

Not interested in traditional cable cartel options -- ie. subsidizing hundreds of stations I will not watch. Was hoping the Pac 12 network and others would develop a direct internet option, but the cable lobby is not allowing that. Hulu and Sling seem to offer a disappointing, buggy middle option, with horrible customer service, where you have to invest in special browsers or hardware for the privilege of subsidizing dozens of stations instead of hundreds. Meh. Any hope for a straightforward option out there?

posted in the thread What is keeping CU from getting to that next level as a P6 program? by buffhooper on the Basketball Message Board 1 day ago
No one has answered an honest question
No one seems to have any ideas of what is needed to upgrade the CEC? Marketing doesn’t count (it is important though). What are we proposing RG spend money on as a capital expense?
The players dont care about the bathrooms, concessions, or my desire for lazy boy seats in section 8 where I sit.

With that said, I wonder, and am asking what the players want and need that they don’t have? I don’t know. There might be obvious things.

I will agree that as a fan, the CEC would benefit from a face lift, but I don’t see that doing too much for the players. I’d rather spend money on the players needs.

I’ve not said our facilities are better. I just believe there are a few schools that that have ridiculous PRACTICE facilities, and most of the rest are relatively similar.

If you strictly look at the buildings, having gone to games at Allen Fieldhouse and Cameron Indoor arent comfortable (bench seats for fans the size of 12 year olds), and fan amenities weren’t great. Duke and KU’s practice facilities are way nicer than the arenas. If their teams weren’t good (+history) I’d suggest they blow those places up and start over. The Dean Dome? Well that place is like going to the CEC, but just twice as big.

I'm with Tad. It was beyond embarrassing last time when we lost in
what looked like a high school gym in a tournament that we PAID to enter and in which we were expected to shine. I felt it left a pall on the team that lasted through at least part of the next season.

3 in the ncaa is great news for us...
Virtually no NIT chance after last night and today's games. Yale in NCAA and Harvard now in the NIT.
St Louis in the NIT and St. Bonnie in the NCAA, and the list goes on. If I recall , TAD said he would never play in a "3rd tier" tourney like the CBI/CBT. Really? That stinks! These kids don't give a SH*T where they play,just get us to ANY tournament.

As for Bey, I referred to what another poster wrote on this board after he had a sub-par game last week. And I speculated that maybe the 1st team All Conference selection - a great honor - got into his head a little bit. That is not calling a kid out. Do you even know the difference???

How about we agree to go easy on our student athletes from this point forward? That should not be so difficult.

MT will be under the same scrutiny as MM
If MT gets MM type results in years 2-4 he'll have fallen well short of what Buff football is capable of.

I was ok with MM until years 6 & 7, and I would have been ok with 7-5 and a minor bowl in either of those years. The fact that MM couldn't hit that mark was all the proof I needed that we needed to go in a different direction.

Now my wagon is fully hitched to MT and I will support the man %100.

Until the first scores comes in everything will be fluff, especially with a brand new coaching staff.

You see these type articles every year
it doesn't matter who the team/coach is....I doubt that MM directed the S&C coach to be any less intense than MT....If anything, it makes the S&C coach appear that he wasn't "working as hard as the players" previous to MT arriving.
In reality, would love to see actual numbers to back this up. example.....when MT took over, we did not have anyone who benched (insert any lift and number) 400 pounds or more, we now have 6.......something tangible to back it up.......otherwise, it's just "coach speak"....JMO

If he does, he will still blow by most big men and overpower the rest.
I'm sure you watched him last night and tonight and are in awe just as I am. Barkely gained weight too and was still great. Plus I think Zion is stronger and faster . Not a knock on Barkley.

Great college player and has to be first pick for fan base just
Wonder if he will translate the nba any better than Wiggins. He does not shoot well, does not have good handles and won’t over power nba the way he does college kids. With nba so ball screen oriented and spread floor with shooters where does he fit. Not ball handler nor pick and pop guy. Very unique talent and fun to watch

Interesting article about "untimed" test taking...
[Since the FB board has temporarily become the OT board :-) ]

The linked article is about the prevalence of students claiming a disability to take the SAT untimed, and how the percentage of students that take advantage of that seems to correlate with family income. A key quote:
"Nationwide, only 2 percent of students who have taken the SAT over the past 10 years have done so untimed. ... But in places like Greenwich, Conn., and certain zip codes of New York City and Los Angeles, the percentage of untimed test-taking is said to be close to 50 percent."

SAT is a racket!
They make so much $. Charge to send scores to schools, etc.

It is interesting to me that there's an increasing number of schools that are "test optional" and I think that more will go that direction with the backlash that this incident will generate.
