DENVER — Let’s go dancing.  Colorado State moved to 23-4, (13-4) with Saturday’s 66-55 victory at Utah State (16-14, 7-10). With another Quad 1 win added to their resume and the added benefit of the Saint Mary’s win looking even better after the Gaels’ upset of No. 1 Gonzaga, it now feels safe to say that the Rams will be in...

DENVER — Colorado State got the full Las Vegas experience this weekend and not in a good way.  The Rams entered Saturday’s game at UNLV with a five-game winning streak and a ton of confidence after taking down Boise State and New Mexico on the road. A win over the Rebels in this one would have been massive, especially with...

DENVER — When Colorado State hosts San Diego State in the annual ‘Orange Out’ on Friday night, it won’t be the first time that these programs have faced off in a big-time matchup over the last decade.  On Feb. 13, 2013, the No. 24 Rams hosted SDSU in a sold out Moby Arena and in front of a ruckus home crowd,...

DENVER — Saturday’s matchup between Colorado State and San Jose State is not one that you will hear the pundits mention as a game that hoops fans should watch. The Rams (12-1, 2-1) are 22-0 all-time against the Spartans (7-6, 0-1), so despite it being their only scheduled contest this season, it’s not one that typically moves the needle on...

DENVER — There is no substitute for the real thing.  In the 24 days between games for No. 20 Colorado State (11-0,1-0), the Rams were able to hold just three full practices. That’s what men’s head basketball coach Niko Medved told local reporters following Tuesday night’s 67-59 victory over Air Force.* Never apologize for a win. They all count the same...

DENVER — Colorado State men’s basketball is currently undefeated (10-0) and ranked No. 21 in both the AP and Coaches Polls. If the Mountain West fails to change its forfeit policy regarding cancellations caused by COVID-19, however, the Rams may record their first loss of the 2021-22 campaign without even stepping on the court.  According to a tweet that has since been deleted from Brian Roth, CSU’s play-by-play analyst for both football and men’s basketball, the Rams are going to be on pause until late into next week, meaning the first conference game of the season is going to be cancelled. The Rams are currently slated to open up Mountain West play at New Mexico on Dec. 28 but Roth…

Finally, Justin gives his thoughts on both the New Mexico Bowl and LA Bowl. DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE!  iTunes Link | Stitcher Link |Spotify Link | Google Play

FORT COLLINS, CO. — After struggling to knock down jump shots in Monday night’s win over the Falcons, Adam Thistlewood and Kendle Moore stayed late to work on their 3-point shooting. The duo had just played 27 and 33 minutes respectively in a 30 point victory over Air Force — but after combining to go 1-of-13 from the perimeter — the two...
