It was almost déjà vu . . . but with a much happier ending. Three nights after a Texas A&M three-pointer with under 2 seconds to play tied Colorado and eventually brought a devastating overtime loss, Kansas State had CU in a hauntingly familiar position...but Thank God For Replay.
"What a difference a day makes . . . our players deserved this win after what happened on Wednesday night when we gave one away," said Boyle, who didn't look at the Events Center video boards for a hint of the officials' ruling, preferring to wait on whatever word he was given. "I couldn't tell . . . but I thought we guarded it well."
Higgins called it "the most unorthodox game I think I've played in. It was that way against them last year, too . . . it's just their style of play, but we have to match it. It's why it's such a grudge match when we play these guys."
Higgins led the Buffs with 17 points and Levi Knutson added 16. But Burks, who had been in double figures in 24 of 25 games this season, had to be content with his 10 rebounds - a game high - and eight points.
"Don't matter what I did," Burks said, "we won."
Got a problem with Pac-10 officiating? Well, apparently conference commissioner Larry Scott feels your pain. And has heard your gripes. After what the conference termed "a comprehensive review of the officiating program and a request by Dave Cutaia to step down as the Coordinator of Football Officiating," the Pac-12 announced Friday it will restructure its football officiating program.
Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott comes across as a fairly visionary guy...But even with his farsighted track record, I can almost guarantee Larry Scott did not foresee a legal fight involving Tupac Shakur on the horizon. ...I'm a fake doctor, not a lawyer, so I won't speculate on the possible outcome of an intellectual property case. But these domain squatters, man, they're harder than they look.
