Tony’s Take: Is Colorado close to being an ‘everything’ school?

The Colorado Buffaloes have had a very interesting 2022-23 when it comes to marquee sports. While the results were not always there during games, the pieces have been put together for CU to become an “everything” school in the near future.

What is an everything school? On3 defines it as a school that makes a bowl game in football while also making the NCAA Tournament in both men’s and women’s basketball. Fourteen schools achieved all three feats during the 2022-23 cycle: UCLA, USC, Texas, NC State, Duke, Maryland, Baylor, Alabama, Iowa, Mississippi State, Tennesse, Purdue, Illinois and UConn.

The Buffs are sitting 1-for-3 as the women’s team is set for the NCAA Tournament as a No. 6 seed. JR Payne’s squad has made the Big Dance for the second year in a row and has reinforcements inbound. The men’s team is also in the NIT after a rare down year in the Tad Boyle era while the football team struggled to a 1-11 record. But brighter days are on the horizon.

The football team made its biggest hire in years with the addition of head coach Deion Sanders, has put together an outstanding recruiting class and has more potential talent on its way. The men’s basketball team also signed one of the best recruits in program history to go along with what should be a veteran squad next season.

When you add all this up, Colorado is on the cusp of completing the trifecta. I’m setting the over-under at three years and smashing the under. What are your thoughts, Buffs fans? Are you taking the under with me or will one of the three pillars not deliver?
