Not just this season
They beat a ranked team then lose a game badly usually a game they should win. I believe it was last year- big win then get their doors blown off at Utah by an average Utah team. This year it was Oregon State. Arizona is good but not old Arizona good. No reason for a performance like that.

Frustrated because.....
If you are "one of the best teams in the county" you don't post a performance like that. This isn't the Arizona of old

Prediction: 23-11 and and 8/9 seed in dance
I have them losing on road to Oregon, OSU, Utah, and usc. Also have them dropping one more at home and one additional on road to teams they are favored to beat, just because it happens every year

Also have then winning two in Pac 12 tourney,

Great chance to win one ncaa tourney game, but they will see a 1 or 2 seed likely in their 2nd tourney game so likely one and done

Would love to see the video and the skit. Colorado also has the best pro

Do I assume that Chip is always a CU student?

49ers manhandled the Pack. In every way. Why pass, with the possible risks,
when you can jamb it down their throats--which they did?

Because they are cu fans they think we should be a really good team
They have no idea what Boyle has accomplished at one of the worst power 5 basketball schools in history. I would like if Boyle was able to recruit better and coach offense better but I absolutely love what he has done for the program

I honestly don’t know what expectations are any more
Earlier it was “Tad better make the Tourney.” We beat a couple ranked teams, we earn a split in Arizona and now people are “frustrated” because we lost in the toughest place to play in the P12.

I don’t get it.

Not sure what your point is
I understand CU basketball is not a national brand. Neither are like 50 teams in the field of 64 each year.

I don’t know what that has to do with anything though, because unless they completely implode, the Buffs are going to the tourney by all national metrics & projections I have seen.

I guess we’ll see what happens.

You should maybe see what has happened to most top 20 teams on the
Road this year. Almost all teams have a road blow out. Even the current number one has a 20 point road loss this year so why would an average talent cu team not have one.

Much better getting the students to show up. The difference between us, cal, Stanford, and Washington, the teams you mentioned, is history and recruiting base. We are well below in those two very important areas

Better players. Kids love amenities when they visit schools. We have an ok practice facility. With the new center court score board we have ok event center. With that we can recruit ok players.

They imposed a huge penalty on Louisville, loss of a title and coach...
...yet due to their huge fan base, money and top notch arena, they hired a more honest and complete coach in Mack. I don't think Pitino ever won in Durham. Louisville is better off with the firing of Pitino and the cleaning up of their program.

If Self or Miller are ever fired for their actions, AU and KU will just find someone better anyway. Now USC should be punished and it would bring their program down because they don't draw much for fans whether they win or not.

Because they would lose 90% of the interest in/support of their product.
No fans = no dollars for anyone. Heavy handed enforcement is not worth the cost.

Plus, it’s more fun when the underdog good guys knock off the cheating, big money programs anyway.

This is a good post WT . . .
And I would add this . . . for years, we have played this go one game above .500 at home and then lose two straight to come home one below .500. Now we come home after an Arizona split at 3 - 2, with to very, very winnable games at home and the Arizona schools done for the year. We're in good shape for the rest of the regular season . . .

Of course, all bets are off for the any tourney!

Tournament games aren't "road games" either
Buffs are 4-0 on neutral floors this season with the Dayton game having a road game feel (2-2 in road games).
The games in Vegas (gritty wins) and Chicago (best win of the year) are likely a better indicator than games at KU and Arizona IMO.

Yes, yesterday was frustrating. Just don't give up hope on these guys.

Re: Horse goes in front of the cart
They choose Kansas over CU because of the overall program quality and the bucket of illegal cash in hand. Wouldn't it be great to see what would happen if illegal booster payments disappeared? Why isn't the NCAA punishing Kansas, UofA and others for illegal recruiting?

Interesting quotes regarding facilities.....
From the article you cited from last summer, so I’m guessing any improvements haven’t been completed since at these schools. IMO, any school that doesn’t have a practice gym for MBB is behind CU in facilities.

Regarding Washington:
The knock: “No practice facility just for men’s basketball.” Pac-12 assistant

Regarding Cal: The knock: “No practice facility, academic requirements and the lack of tradition. Just not enough support.” – Pac-12 head coach

Stanford : The knock: “They also need some upgrades with their facilities.” – Pac-12 assistant

WouldI like more investment into hoops? You bet. Am I in Tads corner? Yep, so you and I aren’t all that far apart. Do we have tradition,? No. Good fan base? It is marginally OK. My point is that, we aren’t as far behind with facilities as you imply. If we are missing things in facilities that the athletes need, I suspect Rick George might be working on it.

I get your point - just thought your denigration of 4Buffs was undeserved.
I’m for complete free agency of every player. Over at BYU in the last three weeks two of BYU’s best players reversed their decision to go pro. In their case - it seemed clear to me that at least one of them - likely both of them - had no chance of making an NFL roster. They both needed the additional year - and they reversed their prior announcements.

Viska will likely make an NFL roster. I cheer for him. Many college fans are fans of their schools first - and it was just ok that 4Buffs added that thought to his overall decent post.

Frustrating
I love how this team TALKS about how they are one of the best in the country. Unfortunately, perfrmances like this are too common with this team so I am not a believer. Tourney games aren't going to be at home so I guess it'll be a coin flip. Not the mark of a great team.

Except your numbers are off.
McIntyre didn't go to a bowl every 3-4 years he went once in 6 years.

Boyle has been to the tournament 4 (should have been 5) out of 9 years and is on track - struggles aside - to make it 5 out of 10.

So no, they're not similar at all. At least as far as results are concerned.

I am not concerned about a loss on the road...
to Arizona who I believe has a much more talented team. However, when you are the in the top 20 you cannot go on the road and get run out of the gym. This is the kind of crap that essentially happens every year. I almost consider this a worst loss than the loss to N Iowa or OR St.

Have you ever stood on the 50 yard line with 100,000 fans screaming?
Ask those who have if MM had top ten facilities.

I had a horrible steak last night at a restaurant that had beautifully renovated bathrooms.

It’s always going to take a special person that can sell CU. There is a lot to sell in Boulder but the facilities aren’t the attraction, in my opinion. Look around you. Walk across campus. It’s a top 5 town!! You have to shake what momma gave you. Other programs sell giant stadiums and football-first cultures. We need to sell Boulder. And every coach at CU has that option available to them. Hell, i’ve been gone for years and still can’t stop missing it.

Having said that, I think this team is the best basketball team that CU has ever had. I think a deep NCAA tournament run is a real possibility. Right now, right here, in 2020. So why throw in the towel now? Our facilities didn’t fail to box out at the McKale center. The team lost a game. They’re learning what it takes to win in big games. It’s all good.

I’ll say it again, my only fear is that Bey doesn’t always show up in big games (see KU). I hope Tad is in his ear about that. We’ll need Bey to be a man possessed in March.


PS - I’ve never stood at the 50 yard line with more than 200 or so parents in the bleachers. But I can dream!

More Ashaad Clayton
Jahmyr Giibs is a 4 star Running Back out of Georgia. Committed early to Georgia Tech and recently set up visits to Florida and Ohio State. Just cancelled Ohio State visit today giving the Florida faithful some excitement. Looks like Gibbs is Florida's #1 Running Back prospect. In my opinion, the chances of Clayton coming to Boulder just went up. Interestingly enough, both Clayton and Gibbs are visiting the same days; January 24th weekend.

how "old fashioned" that seems today and totally ridiculous he has to live with it.

And here an entire organization was involved in fixing and winning games, seasons and the World Series by cheating.

Well, Joe, it is so. So someone needs to answer for it and I feel the Astros should be disbanded and no longer a part of professional baseball.

Sorry for those that didn't "know", but I'm pretty sure most did. They can all retire on their two World Series money and never play again.

I didn't attack the poster. I criticized his post as self-serving and without regard for Viska's interests. I stand by that.

Many people make comments like this, and I don't think it makes the poster a bad person. But I think it should be called out when it happens. I feel the same way when fans impugn a kid's character for decommiting from CU. Often times, the same fans cheer when a kid decommits from another school to fome to CU. I think that's disgraceful, and I'll call it out when I see it.
