    OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    OU lost to Virginia Commonwealth. So much for them being a basketball school mr. Barnes. However Colorado had a good game barely losing to Arizona.

    One game does not a season make.

    VCU is no pushover. They've played in the post season in 5 out of the last six years, including 3 trips to the field of 65.

    This plus it was a true road game, AND VCU is where Capel coached prior to bolting to Norman. I am sure he recruited many of the guys currently on the team. A little extra motivation I am sure. OU very well may be over rated, but a lone loss doesn't qualify as a true indication.

    VCU would beat any team we've played so far by double digits.

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    I agree but OU did not even really hang with them. Colorado, regardless of how down Arizona is, should not be hanging around with Arizona. So they must be getting a little better. They do have a good coach there. Oh yeah and Iowa sucks.

    Well, there's no arguing with that...

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    I would not look too much into those games..

    VCU is a very good opponent who was at home and playing a young Sooner squad, while CU played tough against two of the youngest teams in the nation. (Zags have 12 underclassmen, Zona has 13)

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    I dont know about Colorado...I watched their game against Chaminade today some and they looked pretty bad, maybe it was the 3 games in 3 days.

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    Colorado appears to be alright but in reality once we get into BIG 12 play I don't see them winning any more games in conference play than they did last year. As far as OU, like it was mentioned earlier, they are young. I mean you look at teams like Kentucky with Cousins and Wall, they almost lost and have played games in which their opponent stayed closer than expected but thats because they are an extremely young team. OU is going through the same thing. I have no doubt by around January that both teams will be playing at a high level with their young talent.

    Now if Willie Warren starts complaining to the refs after every shot he took like he did in the VCU game, then it might be a different story...

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    You hit the nail on the head.
    Wait until the con starts and see how OU steps up. You don't here much about their freshman (except Tiny) but they have 3 that will really make them a difficult team.
    I would bet on that!

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    I dunno about Colorado. I think I'm surprised by how well they played in Maui.
    Took Gonzaga down to the wire and Gonzaga gave Michigan State (at Lansing) all they could handle. Then a day later the Buffs took Arizona to OT (refusing to lose-scored like 8 points or something in a row to force OT).

    I don't think Colorado is going to shock the world, but the Colorado of the past would have been pushed over in Maui and this Colorado didn't lay over and die.

    They could surprise a couple of teams I think and if they are the worse team in the Big 12, it might be a long conference season.

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    Colorado playing well does show just another example of how stacked the Big 12 is as a conference this season

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    CU was up on Gonzaga by 13 the night before losing to Arizona in OT.

    Re: OU basketball not as good. Colorado not as bad.

    ISU was 6-0 to start the season a few years ago. Ended up 15-16.

    Cant tell much at all until mid to late December.
