    Yeah, glad CU got the snub. Hopeully being one of the "problem 2" kept them out as well...sanction of perception.

    We sealed the Huskers fate but CU's weak non conference schedule did them in.

    Re: Good riddance Colorado and Nebraska!

    Nebraska didn't stand a chance, Colorado however got snubbed. In all honesty, the way the performed up until the late part of the season and with their Big 12 tourney run, they deserved to be in much more than weak UAB or VCU teams. Although I don't like the Buffs, the would put up a heck of a lot better fight than those two teams will ever dream about.

    I think that their losses to us had a lot to do with them not making the tourney. I love it!

    CU may be the team I most despise in all of the Big 12 but they deserve a shot. They played well at the end and Alec Burks may be the best baller in the Big 12.

    Re: Good riddance Colorado and Nebraska!

    Colorado deserved to be in the tournament, I don't care what you think of them. We could be them next year, not getting in. The NCAA is a joke to allow conference winners in for just winning their tournament and then not one of the other teams because they're not good enough Well who did thy play all year long? No one! I hope we are really good next year, top three or we may fall just like Colorado.

    CU probably deserved to be in, but they barely escaped the 1st round game against us... we should have won that game.

    Re: Good riddance Colorado and Nebraska!

    I agree with Jay Bilas that you don't need some damn rpi or other cute stat to know who are the best teams. A simple smell test would have told you Colorado is better than some of these teams. This is what you get when you have a committe put together of people who never worked in basketball, just administration.

    Not to mention the fact that Bebee probably didn't go to bat for them, either. If that's the case (and I really think it is), then that's a low blow. You'd think he'd use common sense and see that it only makes the Big 12 look bad.

    CU doesn't join the Pac until next season. That was a tourney-caliber team from your conference that you snubbed. Wouldn't you want as many teams as possible in there?

    Same goes for Nebby and their bowl game.

    Cmon good sir. I know you have more intelligence than this. Dan Beebe doesn't use common sense. In a poach or be poached world Beebe will always be poached.

    Because he couldn't, according to the NCAA selection procedures.

    He couldn't be in the room for a vote on any Big 12 teams, and was only allowed to answer factual questions about any Big 12 teams. No lobbying.
