    Colorado just won at K-State

    74-66. K-State's got PROBLEMS and Colorado must be pretty damn tough.

    Colorado might be for real. 2 big wins for them starting out. I am envious.

    Man, I miss Patton. Why couldn't they have just kept him.

    Re: Colorado just won at K-State

    CU looks tougher than I thought and KSU looks not as good as advertised. KSU right now is a likely pick-off target for the 'Clones at Hilton, but CU looks to be a tough out both at Hilton and on the road.

    2 impressive wins for CU to start out conference play.

    CU won't be the easy home win as in past years. Burks and Higgins are players.

    Re: Colorado just won at K-State

    KSU is missing Clemente more than most thought they would. He was the glue that held them together and was always good at finding his teammates in a good position to score. It's not as easy as just sliding a 2 guard over and saying, now you're a point guard.

    I hate to say it, but it makes me nervous for next year without DG. I sure hope Sledge and/or Odunsi come in as Big 12 ready point guards.

    Oh, and yes, Colorado is going to be a tough out.

    Re: Colorado just won at K-State

    Eh, I haven't been impressed by Kstate or Missouri (two teams Colorado beat) all year. If you catch Missouri on the right night they're an easy win, but if you catch them on the wrong night they'll beat you by 10. Kstate just tries to ugly the game up as much as possible. I never understood their preseason ranking.

    Colorado has the two stars that can win them games. Kinda like Stinson and Blalock. They're gonna beat teams they shouldn't, and also lose games they shouldn't.

    Colorado is good. I watched a good part of their game against Mizzou. They were up on Mizou by 20 in the second half. Mizzou made a run to make it respectable.

    The Colorado situation is very similar to ours. Tad Boyle grew up in Colorado and calls this his dream job. He inherited a team from Bzdelic that ran a Princeton type offense and turned them into an up tempo team.

    The difference is that he inherited a LOT of talent.

    Colorado isn't that tough. They will implode soon.

    Any team that has 2 guys with talent like Burks & Higgins will do just fine. I'm not saying they are going to the tournament, but I don't see them finishing lower than 8th in the conference.

    Are people forgetting we did the same thing last year when they had Clemente? Not saying its not a great win for CU, but it will take more than 2 games to sell me on them.



    No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda

    I agree - what a coaching upgrade. Colorado bb fans must be in heaven after Wake Forest took Bzdelick off their hands and Tad Boyle fell into their lap. They have become a serious basketball school for once.

    It also looks like the Big 12 will be a better conference in the future even though CU and NU are departing, except at Texas Tech.
