99 in 99: #70 Colorado Buffaloes

Colorado cheerleaders

In the summer of the mega-conference, Colorado was one of the few major programs to actually change affiliation.  This will be the Buffaloes final season in the Big 12 as they will become a member of the Pac-10.  You know, because Colorado hugs the Pacific Ocean… Nobody is sadder than the other Big 12 basketball teams who stomped all over the Buffs the past few seasons.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball teams and top 27 mid-majors for the 2010-2011 season.  It will provide with all you need to know about each team and lead right up to the opening tip of the season.  Click here if you missed teams #70-#99.
