Football season is over (except for the bowl), but hoops is just getting started. We’ll have tons of post-Bedlam coverage this week as we turn towards the bowl game and also the heart of basketball season.

CU’s lack of bowl success

Oklahoma State’s bowl opponent Colorado hasn’t been great in the postseason for a while.

The Buffs reached the pinnacle of college football in 1990 with a shared national championship (Georgia Tech) with an Orange Bowl victory over Notre Dame, but they have since found little postseason success since. CU is 12-16 all-time in bowl appearances and has lost its past two (2007 Independence against Alabama and 2005 Champs Sports against Clemson). The Buffs’ last postseason victory was the 2004 Houston Bowl, beating UTEP 33-28. [NewsOK]

It always amazes me to read that Colorado split a national championship with Georgia Tech.

Here is the full B12 bowl schedule.

The Playoff is set

Berry Tramel rips into the CFB Playoff committee’s reasoning when it comes to choosing the four teams.

OU did not deserve a spot in the four-team field. The Sooners lost twice in September, then won the Big 12, which clearly was the worst of the Power-5 conferences. But Hocutt’s explanation, when asked about the Sooners, was off the mark. “We talked about how impressed the selection committee was on the offensive side of the ball, but they weren’t as much of a complete team as those that we’re looking at in this football season,” said Hocutt, the athletic director at Texas Tech. That’s the kind of code talk the previous chairman, Arkansas AD Jeff Long, used. And it’s madness. [NewsOK]

It really is insane. Trying to measure different teams across the country playing unbalanced, inequitable schedules. And then trying to determine which team had the better defense? Where are we at in society?

Spencer and MacIntyre old pals

Good stuff here on Glenn Spencer and Colorado’s head man.

Spencer and MacIntyre crossed paths after both played at Georgia Tech. Spencer played defensive tackle from 1982 to 1985 and MacIntyre, who played for his father at Vanderbilt for two seasons until his father was dismissed at Vandy, was at Georgia Tech as a defensive back from 1986 to 1988.

“Mike and I go back in that we both played football at Georgia Tech together and the families have spent a few years together at Black Mountain at FCA camps together,” Spencer revealed. “He’s a dear friend and I can’t wait to see him down there and see the family again. It’s just neat how things worked out.” [Go Pokes]

It’s hilarious to think about Spencer playing defensive tackle, isn’t it?
