Looks like the Buffaloes will be proving a lot of people wrong once again...
Today is Pac-12 basketball media day in San Francisco, California and as such, the conference has released their preseason media poll. Once again, the media doesn't expect much from the Buffs, who are picked to finish sixth, behind Arizona, UCLA, California (really?), Stanford, and Washington. Last year, Colorado was picked tied for 10th heading into the season and finished the regular season with the fifth seed before going on to win the postseason tournament.
The Buffs lost some important pieces from last year's NCAA Tournament team, but return Andre Roberson, Spencer Dinwiddie and Askia Booker and add a highly regarded recruiting class. Tad Boyle has continued to work wonders during his time as the Buffaloes coach and fans hope to see more this year.
