I should have published this a few days ago because I believed that this was coming. As is typical for big Division I schools, the early season basketball schedule is loaded with patsies who are simply happy to get a good payday and perhaps an upset of a supposedly superior team. The CU men won 11 and lost 2 in the pre-PAC12 Conference play, but the 11 wins were generally versus mediocre teams, while the 2 losses were to decent teams. So while Coach Boyle's proclaimed the he was 'bullish on the Buffs' going in to Conference play, I would have bet dollars to donuts that the basketball team would follow the inauspicious footsteps of the football team and not be able to win in their Conference opener:
California 79 - University of Colorado 65.
The women did not fare any better:
Washington 76 - Colorado 74.
The men play tonight at Stanford, and if anyone wants to be even up on Colorado, I will take that bet.
