Twitter lit up today with the news that College Gameday might be coming back to Boulder! No, silly, not for a football game, but for basketball.
On February 22nd, the Buffs play host to Arizona, in what many expect will be a game between the top two teams in the Pac-12. ESPN plans to chose between that titanic tilt and UCLA/Stanford for that weekend's traveling roadshow destination.
As long as CU holds up their end of the bargain, and play like the top-25 team they project to be this season, that choice will be a no-brainer for the big-whigs in Bristol. Not only will CU/UofA be a high-profile rivalry matchup from one of the country's premier leagues, but the C-Unit has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the most passionate student sections in America. Stanford simply doesn't measure up.
For the record, ESPN hasn't brought Gameday to Boulder since 1995, when they came to town twice for football (Texas A&M and Nebraska). They've never been here for basketball. It's time for that drought to end with a bang on 2/22/14!
