    Let's crash their NCAA hopes and return some losses that they have given us over the years in Boulder when we have needed a victory to improve our NCAA look. I'm going 83-75 Cyclones.

    Playing in Colorado compared to anywhere else is night and day. The Buffs have a HUGE advantage playing their home games a mile high. The last time I checked Ames, Iowa was not a mile high.

    Plus, Colorado in effect quashed ISU's bowl hopes last season — that would be a nice turnabout w/ CU's NCAA hopes.

    I realize streaks mean nothing on a game-by-game or season-by-season basis, and this year's CU team seems clearly better than ISU. But I wouldn't mind sending this series out on a fitting note, at least as a balance to ISU's futility in Boulder (in both FB & MBB)

    In the past 35 seasons, Colorado has won a regular season MBB game in Ames only 3 times ('76-77, '90-91, '04-05).

    I predict Godfrey and JVB will block every shot CU takes.

    Your probably right at least 8 maybe 10 point win for the Buffs...


    CU just scored 68 points in the second half against the "Best Defensive Team" in the Big XII conference...

    We just gave up 82 points against a very bad offensive team in Nebraska so we dont really have much of a chance against the Mighty Buffs...


    Good Bye Buffs enjoy the california sun & good riddance....

    I like our chances, regardless of what happened the last time they played.

    For one, it's Senior Night in Ames. Hilton should be rocking and the seniors should be jacked up.

    Second, Colorado has two major factors going against them. They're coming off a huge comeback win against a top 5 team, and we don't know how much they have left in the tank after that. And there's the matter of their record away from Boulder, which is a sorry 3-8 that includes a bad loss at Oklahoma and an early season defeat by USF.

    The only question for ISU - and it's the same one you have to ask after every game - is how much they have left. I think the K State game and the tourney might get ugly, but they should be able to ride the emotional wave to a win and burst the bubble for the Buffs (alliteration is fun!)

    There couldn't be a better way to end the scheduled home finale than to send the two "defectors" home disappointed. We play good defense, we win by at least 10.

    If ISU wins... it's gonna be by the three pointer and higher shooting %... so the score will have to be in high 70s or 80s

    1.)As bad as we play in Boulder, Colorado plays equally horrid in Ames.

    2.)Colorado is comming off a big win and will be feeling good about themselves...probably too good. We are 2-12 and they probably think they can waltz in and out of here with an easy win. Trap game.

    3.)Last week was the first time in a long while we haven't had somone injured or suspended and it showed. I thought the team had a much better vibe Saturday than I have seen in months. We were quick, agressive, and focused.

    4.)Senior night at Hilton. The crowd should be rockin' and the team will be playing with a lighter step after getting the monkey off their back.
