Video: CU Buffs basketball players do it Gangnam style

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 round. Optimism is high for this season, too, as witnessed by the response to a new Gangnam-style video featuring the team. See it below.

The goofy clip, featuring players such as Spencer Dinwiddie doing their loopiest dances to the trendy Korean pop-music phenomenon, was posted last week with little ballyhoo -- but now, it's got over 22,000 views. That translates to a lot of people who'll be fighting for seats once the Buffs season gets underway next month; the first game is November 9 in Boulder against Wofford College.

Here's the video.
