It's been a rough September for the University of Colorado. First the Buffs football team lost to their now arch-rivals, the Colorado State University Rams, in the annual early-season battle at Sports Authority Field, and then the entire school fell off Playboy's yearly list of the biggest party sch ...

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 >>
If one were to create a line graph of the 2012-2013 college basketball season, it would look something like the Flatirons: jagged and uneven. Multiple teams held the position of number one in the country for a week, only to lose the next. Yes, it's been a schizophrenic season, but fear not, intrepid ... More >>
Denver blog posts are mad about March Madness. The Ralphie Report's Jon Woods notes that if the CU Buffs beat Illinois in the NCAA men's basketball tournament, they'll likely face second-seed Miami. Fortunately, Andre Roberson's no longer viral. CSURams.com hypes the other Colorado team to make th ... More >>
Denver blog posts are here, there and everywhere. Colorado Pols is not amused by the latest GOP responses to a Democratic rep's comments about sex assault and guns on college campuses -- including a jokey "rape defense kit" consisting of a whistle and a ballpoint pen.

Denver blog posts really add up. South Stands Denver's Colin D. on how Ty Lawson's new contract will let him rest easy -- "on a golden bed stuffed with cash." Big Media's Jason Salzman on the way Mike Coffman didn't say whether or not he'd let a raped woman to have an abortion. The Ralphie Report ... 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 >>
I love CU-Boulder so much that I send most of my money there (for my daughters' tuition). But there's no doubt plenty of folks on the Interwebs feel differently. There are loads o' mean CU-Boulder jokes out there (on sites like this one and this one and this one), with consistent themes including po ... More >>
In all of the hoopla surrounding President Barack Obama's speech at CU-Boulder last night, as well as his crowd-pleasing, yogurt-spilling stop at The Sink, a favorite Boulder restaurant and student hangout, the media has thus far missed a side note involving hoops. To wit: Spencer Dinwiddie, one of ... 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 >>

Today's Denver Post reports on a proposal to let Colorado drivers bid for the most sought-after vanity plates. But which ones would bring in the most dough? We've got some ideas about that. Here's our top ten.
The shot.There was so much positive about the CU Buffs' mens basketball squad this year that it was tough to watch the season flicker out as a result of three bad sequences in a row during crunch time of last night's 62-61 NIT semi-final loss against Alabama. So let's deal with the bad news ... More >>
Alec Burks.After the CU Buffs got screwed out of a March Madness berth, their consolation was a number one seed in the National Invitational Tournament -- and they've made the most of it so far. By beating Kent State last night, the squad earned the right to play in the NIT semi-finals in New ... More >>
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 >>
Devon Beitzel.They did it. The University of Northern Colorado Bears received their Big Dance invite before the CU Buffs thanks to a solid 65-60 win over Montana in last night's Big Sky championship. And UNC may be a tougher first-round out than most experts believe for one big reason: Devon ... More >>
Cory Higgins.Apparently, no one ever told the CU Buffs how hard it is to beat a quality team three times in the same season. Because moments ago, they did just that, pulling away late to defeat Kansas State by twelve points in the Big 12 tournament quarter finals. An invitation to go crazy as ... More >>
Big pics below.Update: The Colorado Buffs' push to March Madness took a big step forward today via a 77-75 win over Iowa State in Kansas City. If they can defeat Kansas State tomorrow, they're a lock. And what can make the far-away gym where they'll play feel like home? Cheerleaders! Look bel ... More >>
Relphorde.Earlier this season, we declared this year's CU Buffs to be the school's best since Chauncey Billups's glory days after defeating Missouri and Kansas State in quick succession. But will the Buffs have to knock off K-State for a third time this season in order to take part in a cert ... More >>
Marcus Relphorde.After Colorado beat Kansas State, we declared the team CU's best since Chauncey Billups's glory days. Of course, Kansas is a considerably tougher opponent than Kansas State, and the Buffs weren't able to top the Jayhawks last night. But even those who don't believe there's su ... More >>
My girlfriend. Ha! I wish!Hello, sports fans. My name is Homer Duggins and I've been a monster Denver devotee for, like, my whole life!

Last night, Colorado State University fans descended on downtown Fort Collins to celebrate the Rams' out-of-the-blue 23-17 victory over the heavily favored CU Buffs in this year's Rocky Mountain Showdown. But what began as a good time devolved into a bummer when cops used rubber bullets to disperse ... More >>

Let senior University of Colorado cornerback Ben Burney blog about the Buffaloes' 2009 season on the CU's athletic department's website. It would show fans what it's really like to be one of those heroes in black a ... More >>
