To you, what was the most SURPRISING development of the weekend for CU Athletics?
  • That the CU men's basketball team not only won their first round game (when CU was the favorite national pick for a 5/12 upset), but that the Buffs did so in such dominating fashion (58%, 179 Votes)
  • That the CU women's basketball team, which hasn't been in the post-season in four years, advanced to the Elite Eight of the WNIT (beating Nebraska, no less), and could even win it all (25%, 78 Votes)
  • That CU was able to pick up not only its quarterback from the Recruiting Class of 2022, but added a speedy running back (and a transfer defensive end with four years of eligibility remaining) (17%, 52 Votes)

No. 5 seed Colorado routs No. 12 seed Georgetown, 96-73. Thoughts?
  • Great, great win! 27 assists on 36 baskets? 64% from three? Walker 9-10 from the field? Wright's 13 assists? Awesome - just awesome!! (74%, 305 Votes)
  • I just love that the Buffs have picked up their first tournament win since 2012, and get that "can't get past the first round" talk about Tad Boyle put to bed for awhile. Congrats, Tad! (13%, 55 Votes)
  • I just hope that the Buffs can save some of this mojo for the second round. Buffs deserve credit for not succumbing to the 5/12 jinx (like many predicted). Let's see if the Buffs can keep it going (13%, 51 Votes)

CU gets a commitment from three-star quarterback Owen McCown, from Rusk, Texas. Thoughts?
  • Considering that it might be years before he'll play, I'll be patient. Get S&C Coach Shannon Turley and QB Coach Danny Langsford on this young man - and we could have a star by 2023! (48%, 172 Votes)
  • What stands out to me is that McCown is all of 165 pounds, and only had one other Power Five offer despite playing in the heart of Texas. Fingers crossed, but it's hard to get too excited just now (27%, 97 Votes)
  • A great pickup. Good bloodlines with a father who has had a long career as an NFL quarterback. Like that Coach Dorrell has a history with his father, and that CU got its QB commit early. Welcome! (25%, 92 Votes)

Which CU news story of the day do you find to be the most interesting?
  • That CU, on pace all season to set a new NCAA all-time free throw shooting record, has now not only dropped behind Harvard (1983-84), but behind Oral Roberts (2020-21) (35%, 70 Votes)
  • That in computer simulations, CU is projected to defeat Georgetown 73% of the time. Take that, prognosticators who are picking Colorado to be a 5/12 upset victim (35%, 70 Votes)
  • That the CU women's basketball team earned its first post-season berth since 2017 (and might get a game against Nebraska in Round Two). Good luck in the WNIT, Buffs! (30%, 59 Votes)
