Our conference is so big (area wise) and not followed well enough to have a neutral site tournament (unless you enjoy have empty basketball arenas. I prefer they just let the winner of the regular season host the tournament like they used to do. Especially since we never get 2 teams in the tournament, it gives a deserved advantage to the regular season champ (I actually hate the idea of end of season conference tournaments).

Boise is a decent drive from Northern Colorado, about six hours. I like the move.

Yeah, 11 to 12 hours in nice weather. In the first week of March, that drive could get ugly fast.

New to the board, but excited about our team this year. I think Linder is going to build a strong program. I can’t wait for the season to start. We’re going to shock the big sky!

Very well might. I think they're picked to finish something like 9th in their conference.

Butting in on this, but how long was our sanction/punishment for and or when does it end?

It's over, we are postseason eligible again.
