Two top 15 teams playing, one team is #1. ESPN chooses to show cows vs ISU? No favs there. Guess it's J-Mo on ESPN radio for me.

Being a man down and this being a physical game. We can't afford any cheap fouls.

Unfortunately the internet at my place is still out (hooray uverse...), but are Vitals fouls legit ones? It seems weird that a team that in way more in your shirt and physical has only 3 and all ours are against our "bigs"

Mayer with the sweet spin and drive and dunk!
ColoradoGRN&GLD

Mayer with an awesome baseline spin move and finishes with the slam over a WVU defender!

Bears up 13-5
