Colorado's Crushed Dreams
If you've ever wanted to see an unusually tall group of young men on the verge of tears, today is your luck day.
The Colorado Daily Camera was with the Colorado Buffaloes — a team with five seniors — as the brackets for the NCAA Tournament were announced. You can actually watch their faces fall as they realized that they've been excluded. We always see teams freaking out with joy at making the tournament, but this is the first time I've ever seen a team that most people thought would make it get left out.
Coach Tad Boyle then says some optimistic bullshit about playing hard in the NIT, but you know he just wants to go cry into a bottle of downmarket hard liquor.
On behalf of The Buzz team, I'd like to wish Buffaloes the best of luck in the NIT. Prove the committee wrong, Buffs.
