I think Battey gets more fouls than he should, because he is so "thick". He looks like a tank ready to plow through people.
Given their lack of big men, I was little disappointed.
Seems that too often when we have a good lead and the other guys are making a run, we become undisciplined and throw up poor shots, too quickly.
It would have been nice if they sent the CU video guy along. Would be fun to see Tad and the guys checking out china.
and, what's w/ Siewert forgetting and taking an extra step? he must get 3 or 4 travels a game.
Pretty much spot on from my view...lot of comments from the whiners,so thouhgt I’d support one sober comment.GO BUFFS
Yeah, this thread is a hoot! Same ol' clueless 35 yr.olds, ragging on first game mishaps and the Capt. Obvious glitches, magnified by playing a nasty rival, in tomorrow's time zone, while on vacation, 7,000 miles away from Boulder, in an entirely different cultural setting![QUOTE="Buffnik, post: 2749289, member: 1852"
I'll need to go back and read this thread (sometimes fun, at least after a win).
Love beating ASU.
Love winning a national broadcast.
Very impressed by what I saw from this team last night. They are really good this year.
What’s wrong with expecting perfection?Yeah, this thread is a hoot! Same ol' clueless 35 yr.olds, ragging on first game mishaps and the Capt.

WHO could have foreseen that???
I agree on Ryder. He and Strating will get the third tier "bigs" minutes. Dombek ain't ready yet.We are going to be able to put a lot of pressure on teams with our bigs. Walton and Siewert are more mobile big men, Walton is very athletic for a 7 footer. Battey is surprisingly athletic for a guy his size but few teams will match his power. When he occupies a space that space is his.
Dombek I'll wait to see but I think that we are also going to be glad this season to have Ryder. He won't figure large in statistics and may not even play in some games but he will protect us against foul issues with our bigs and give us a guy who can play legit minutes against most teams bigs.
The depth will be even more important with Dallas again coming off injury. He is going to need time to get back to playing comfortably and it would make sense to limit his playing time to protect him from re-injury.
