Can't blame folks for being out and finally enjoying this weather! We will do this on occasion over the summer. Thanks for tuning in and have a good holiday weekend.....Pat R.Just a programming note, might be another slow week for hoops news next week. But hoping to start catching up with the team the following week when they're back in Boulder.Things are slowing down here, but I'll be here until the top of the hour if anyone else wants to chime in!Thanks. Yeah, it seemed out of character for Tad. But he was adamant about the level of homework that was done on Coleman. To be fair, the only things Coleman has been mentioned in have been very tangential matters. Tad is very confident the guy will be a huge asset, but it certainly seemed a risky move for a coach that has been willing to speak frankly on the FBI probeI’m glad you wrote about uncharacteristicly risky move of Boyle made in hiring the asu asst mentioned - but cleared so far - in the ncaa probe. I’m surprised he didn’t wait for the whole thing to completely play out first before even touching a guy with any whiff of potentially being involved or accused. I guess he figured he did his homework and someone else would snatch him up soon and he has ties to some big name receipts huh?Yes and yes. Unless some bombshell comes from the NCAA investigation, which I doubt will be wrapped up by the season, I doubt we'll see any change. Crazy how quickly the "game-changing" FBI arrests/probes has actually done little to change anything in the college game so far.Do you think Sean Miller is Arizona coach when the season starts or ends?Yeah, that was great! Pretty weak effort on Rogers' part though. hahaOn football again did you see the tv coverage of former buff David bakhiatari of the packers beating Aaron Rogers and brewers star yelich in a beer chug off at the bucks-raptors game!? Ha. He clearly went to cu! Too funny.It definitely has been a solid recruiting start for coach Tucker. Landing Jake Wray was a big get, and goes right along with what Tucker has been saying since Day 1 about making CU tougher in general, but especially up front.Football comment: impressed with the offers they three of the current commits have; that’s what shows the potential of a player. This last kid had every top program in the country after him and chose the mighty buffs. Bodes well!I agree with that. Much like last year, I think given the roster makeup Tad Boyle is in a position where he doesn't have to take someone just because he has to. He can wait for a player he really wants. It won't be a grad transfer....this team is set for next year. It could be a traditional transfer who sits a year. But don't be surprised if they go into the season with that scholarship still available. Gives more options for midseason transfers or next spring's recruiting market.Thoughts on using the now open scholarship? I’m leaning toward keeping it for 2020 unless a game changing grad transfer is available. But that grad transfer would have to be an all conference caliber of playerI think he's out of his sling. It was going to be three months before he could begin basketball activities, and we're not quite to the two-month mark yet. I hope to catch up with him when the team gets back later next week.so, how is McKinley Wright's recovery from surgery goingI think Walton is a big key, As far as guys on the floor at the end of the year who need to make a jump, I'd go with Evan Battey. Bey kind of made his big jump, and Wright will be Wright. If Battey makes that sort of frosh-to-soph jump, this team will be in great shape for an NCAA push.Who needs to make the biggest improvement this off season for Buffs to get to Ncaa tourney? A healthy Walton would be big tooGreetings and thanks for tuning in! The good thing for this team is there is very little news around a team that remains largely intact. The same can't really be said overall around the league. The team is gone until about next weekend, when they return ahead of summer school classes. I'll be trying to catch up on some news then. I think the biggest newsy issues are McKinley Wright's recovery from shoulder surgery and the open scholarship available with the now-official departure of Deleon Brown.What’s the biggest story so far this spring? Seems like it’s been fairly quite outside of assistant coach changesThanks again for tuning in on the first sunny day in I don't remember how long. We're ready to go, so fire away with your questions/thoughts whenever.Greetings Buffs fans! Sorry it's been a while, but thanks for tuning in. I'll be around for the next hour to talk CU hoops, but happy to take questions about any other CU matters that may be on your mind.
