Jon Wilner suggests that the Pac-12 play up to four 10:00 a.m. (MT) games per year. Thoughts?
  • I like it. As long as there are the restrictions he suggests (like no team has to play more than one a year; schedule set months in advance), I can live with it if it helps to raise the Pac-12 profile (52%, 75 Votes)
  • I hate it. While it might bump up the ratings a tad, I remember the 10:00 Friday Nebraska games. Okay for television - lousy for the fans (27%, 39 Votes)
  • Not really big on it, but since Wilner has CU as the No. 1 team in men's basketball right now, I'm willing to give him a pass on this one (21%, 29 Votes)

ESPN moves CU's men's basketball team into its preseason Top 25. Thoughts?
  • How big a deal would this be if this holds up? The last time CU men's basketball was ranked in the preseason AP poll? Try 1969 ... exactly 50 years ago! (the only preseason ranking in school history) (40%, 80 Votes)
  • Nice, but we'll see how it plays out this fall. CU has significantly upgraded its non-conference schedule, so the Buffs will have their chance to make some noise this season (37%, 73 Votes)
  • Well deserved. CU finished 10-8 in Pac-12 play last season, and has all its starters back. It's about time prognosticators noticed that CU has a strong team returning, and should be a Pac-12 favorite (23%, 45 Votes)

Bill Connelly's S&P+ has CU finishing with a 5-7 record in 2019. Thoughts?
  • I do like this quote: "With three relative tossups in the first five games, a little over-achievement could produce a fast start". It's up to the Buffs to change the nation's perceptions of CU (70%, 138 Votes)
  • Connelly's analysis is very detailed, An objective look at CU, its roster, and its schedule, would say a 5-7 prediction is fair (16%, 32 Votes)
  • Not interested. This "expert" has CU calculated to be an underdog in ten of twelve games. Stats don't tell the story of the improved morale in the locker room (14%, 26 Votes)

CU receives a commitment from Recruiting Class of 2020 athlete Chris Carpenter. Thoughts?
  • Very excited about this commitment. A speedster who plays on both sides of the ball, Carpenter will be a great addition to the defensive backfield for the Buffs (48%, 122 Votes)
  • Somewhat excited. The list of Power-Five offers include Oregon, Arizona State and Oklahoma State. This appears to be a bona-fide talent coming to Boulder (46%, 116 Votes)
  • Not super excited. Carpenter's previous commitment was to North Texas. I trust the coaches, but it still seems like an "up-and-comer" recruit, rather than a consensus star-in-the-making (6%, 14 Votes)

What recent news to you is the most significant?
  • The football team has reported for summer conditioning. The Recruiting Class of 2019 has arrived in Boulder for summer conditioning. Time for Phase III to begin!! (33%, 88 Votes)
  • College Football Hall of Fame nominations for Bieniemy, Salaam, and Westbrook. Nice to see that CU has as many nominees as USC, and more than any other Pac-12 school (26%, 68 Votes)
  • The two new defensive backs - Mikail Onu for 2019 and Chris Carpenter for 2020 and beyond. Quality recruits in an area of need (21%, 55 Votes)
  • The home-and-home announcements v. Kansas (MBB) and CSU (FB). Tad Boyle is setting up his team for an NCAA run, and CSU (in the future) keeps the rivalry alive (20%, 54 Votes)
