As you know, today, the NCAA men's basketball tournament, aka March Madness, gets underway in earnest; we're not counting those play-in games, and neither should you. And with both the CU Buffs and the CSU Rams in the field, there's even more incentive than usual for us to watch the games on the job ... More >>
About the only suspense regarding CU's 2012 football team is whether or not Oregon will break the century mark in their October 27 match-up with the Buffs. No wonder attention is already shifting to the men's basketball team, which made the NCAA tournament last season and upset UNLV in the first rou ... More >>
After losing popular head men's basketball coach Tim Miles to Nebraska, Colorado State University landed a proven and relatively high-profile replacement: Larry Eustachy. There's just one catch: The new CSU head coach is kinda, sorta most well-known for being photographed while partying with student ... More >>
On Saturday night, the CU Buffs played pretty much the same game as in their previous two wins: a very good first thirty minutes, an iffy last ten. But because they didn't have a big lead this time, they fell to the Baylor Bears 80-63 in the NCAA men's basketball tourney. The loss denied them a trip ... More >>
Earlier this week, we asked if the CU Buffs and the CSU Rams could get past their first matchups in the annual NCAA men's basketball tournament. In the case of the Buffs, the answer was a sometimes resounding, sometimes nerve-racking but ultimately thrilling "yes" via a 68-64 victory over highly tou ... More >>
In the past, the annual naming of teams chosen to participate in the NCAA men's basketball tournament has been the equivalent of famine in these parts. And while getting two teams into the field may not qualify as a feast, it's definitely a wonderful change of pace. Now comes the next question: Do t ... More >>
Jimmer Fredette.The NCAA basketball tourney games in Denver on Saturday stood in stark contrast to each other. Richmond-Morehead State boasted virtually no notable names, while Brigham Young-Gonzaga featured one of the biggest stars of 2011 March Madness, BYU's Jimmer Fredette -- a player so ... More >>
Devon Beitzel.There were a slew of bracket-busting upsets on the real day one of the NCAA men's basketball tournament -- damn you, Louisville! -- but the University of Northern Colorado Bears weren't part of one. UNC fell to San Diego State 68-50 in their first Big Dance foray. But through tw ... More >>
Facebook Jimmer.At 5:15 p.m. today, Jimmer Fredette will join his BYU teammates at the Pepsi Center to take on Wofford in the first round of the NCAA basketball championships -- and according to the Denver Post's Woody Paige, Tim Tebow may turn up to watch a baller with a reputation every bit ...

Relphorde.Last week, we used the term "lock" in our post about the CU Buffs' Big Dance chances after beating Kansas State in the Big 12 tournament, -- and we weren't the only ones certain that was true. But no: Marcus Relphorde and the rest of the squad were snubbed by the selection committee ... More >>
Nenê.The Nuggets never win in Phoenix: That appeared to be an immutable fact during the George Karl era. But with last night's Nuggets victory in the land of the sun, there appears to be a new rule: With Carmelo Anthony traded, all bets are off -- including the idea that Nenê will never ac ... More >>

What's Dan Hawkins happy about?As CU fans were wondering if the school will wind up in an expanded Pac 10 or remain in the Big 12, the NCAA hit the university with sanctions. Why?

Tekphotos.org March is almost over, which means March Madness is almost over (though, curiously, it becomes April madness for a week or so, but whatever). But that doesn't mean it's too late to enjoy Audius's March Madness Mixset, an hour-long mix of high-energy, wobbly-bass house madness. I ... More >>
The March Madness predictions made by my daughter Lora and me proved to be much less than spot-on. We haven't heard the final results of our pool yet, but I'm certain we finished far out of the money. But both last two games in the NCAA men's and women's basketball season were satisfying to watch, e ... More >>
The March 18 blog "Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation..." shared NCAA men's and women's basketball picks made by my daughter Lora and me, which fell short of flawless. True, we had Connecticut making it to the women's finals on Tuesday, but not Louisville, which surprised Oklaho ... More >>
The men's NCAA basketball bracket assembled by my daughter Lora and me and shared in the blog "Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation..." was looking pretty good through the first two rounds. It's not now. Two of the four sweet sixteen games that took place last night blew up in our ... More >>

Although most fans who fill out brackets during NCAA basketball tournament season only focus on the men's teams, the contest through the Archdiocese of Denver that my daughter Lora and I have participated in during recent years gives the women equal billing. That's a good thing from the perspective ... More >>
Each year, I sit down with my daughter Lora -- a rabid sports fan with strong opinions about 9News' Susie Wargin -- to fill out NCAA tournament brackets for both the men's and women's basketball championships as part of a friendly contest organized by my wife's peers in the Archdiocese of Denver sch ...
