Scheduling Smack Down

The bullshit I write is the ultimate
Not the counterfeit, but the legit shit
Now trip, I'm the writer of this script...

College hoops starts in our fair state tonight! Can you feel the excitement! A little bit? Any? Hello?

While the fenzy that accompanies college basketball in much of the country, including in most of our surrounding states, engulfs their fans, Colorado remains a colliegiate hoops wasteland.

Leading the way is the flagship university, our Colorado Buffaloes, who when not lead by a certain Nuggets point guard are routinely in the conference basement. This year is no different as the Buffs are picked by every expert this side of Jesus Shuttlesworth to finish last in the Big 12.

But why not a bit of excitement? Start with the schedule. Tonight's epic opener against Arkansas; not the Razorbacks, but rather something called Pine Bluff. I use that to clean my wood floors, right? Follow that up with weenight games next week versus Coppin State and Texas Southern. Good seats available. Heck, you can sit on the player's laps if you just show up.

But hey, it gets better! San Francisco comes to town, maybe their most famous alum Bill Russell can suit up even for just a few minutes. After that Colorado Christian. That is not a local Night Ranger tribute band's homage to "Sister Christian." Cal State Northridge comes calling three days before Christmas. Free gift wrapping will be available. Yale comes a week later, they can do your taxes and solve equations for you during timeouts. And to wrap up the non-conference schedule, Miami Ohio comes to town in early January. Ben Rothlisberger could buy every seat in the arena, but would anyone notice?

The Big 12 portion of the schedule offers some better teams to watch, but the conference did no favors with the days and times. Every Saturday home game is a daytime tilt, when students would rather be a)skiing b)sleeping c)recovering d)anything other than hoops. Who isn't already pumped for the 11:45 am game with Iowa State?

As always there are the Blue KU horde that will take over the arena sometime in February, and Oklahoma and Missouri add some excitement.

The scheduling does have one advantage: it offers a chance for some wins. As a young team in Coach Bz's third year the teams coming in could serve as fodder to get in the left hand column. So head up to Coors and cheer, cheer loud, real loud, because you might be the only one there.
