First game of two this week for me.  On my way to Boulder around 2pm MST.  RCT has a seat on press row!  Should be a fun game.  Provided there are no internet outages I'll be doing a little live blogging from Boulder and tomorrow a little more from the experience and hopefully a Kansas win.  Then in less than 48 hours, I'm on a plane to KC for gameday.  Heck of a week.

Self: Thomas Robinson will not make trip to Colorado with team | KUsports.com
Change of plans and who can blame him. Things I think are great about this. The whole team will be headed to the funeral and I believe coach (or whatever his title is) Hinson will be accompanying Robinson back to DC.

Column: Colorado coach draws on KU heritage | CJOnline.com
A little background on Colorado coach Tad Boyle. He's a Jayhawk. Tomorrow he'll be the enemy, but when CU moves to the Pac12 I'll be rooting for the guy.

KU's Self: Buffs defeats not necessarily end of momentum | The Denver Post — All Things Colorado Sports
Unless the team runs up and smacks the fans in the face with a top 25 ranking or a crazy winning streak this is the one game a year that they all pay attention to. Kansas is coming to town and they all say we're beatable.
