It was sad for seniors, especially, and for the entire squad. Their shocking exclusion from the NCAA Tournament left CSU shook up and the Rams dropped their first round National Invitation Tournament game. But to add…...

It was certainly a spectacular year for Colorado State Rams senior forward J.J. Avila. On Friday, Avila was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division I All-District 17 team. His teammates were Derrick Marks (Boise State Broncos), Larry Nance Jr. (Wyoming Cowboys), J.J. O’Brien (San Diego State Aztecs) and Marvell Harris (Fresno State Bulldogs); talk about an all-star…...

Colorado State University versus the University of Colorado football has been a rivalry affair since 1893. And every year since 1995 the game has been played, with a majority of those games being played at either Mile High or Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver. It’s annually the Centennial State’s biggest college football contest – even if…...

Garrett Grayson is going into the National Football League. That’s right, Colorado State’s starting quarterback for the last three years will find his way into an NFL training camp soon. Why? Grayson’s draft day stock is rising quicker than Apple’s when they announced the iWatch. And for the former Rams QB, it’s all coming at the perfect time. On Monday…...

“It took a lot out of us, Sunday,” Colorado State head coach Larry Eustachy said of the NCAA Tournament snub. It could clearly be seen in the Rams team that showed up Wednesday night. CSU came out flat in their National Invitation Tournament opener against South Dakota State. SDSU, on the other hand, started the game with all the energy,…...

Colorado Sate didn’t deserve this. “Team Together,” led by three senior stars, didn’t deserve this decision from the selection committee on Sunday. While Mountain West cohorts Wyoming – who won the Mountain West Tournament for an auto-bid – San Diego State and Boise State made it in, it became clear CSU would be the one left out. No way the…...

This year, Eustachy’s Rams ran off 14 straight wins to begin the season – a new school-record – and wound up in the Top-25 at that point, landing at No. 24 in the nation. The ranking was only the third such in CSU men’s basketball history, and the second time the green and gold have been ranked since Eustachy came…...

Late Friday night it was finally time for basketball. The Colorado State men’s basketball team faced the San Diego State Aztecs, and without senior forward J.J. Avila, the Rams were underdogs. SDSU played like a championship team from the first tip, taking a quick 7-3 lead to start. But the Rams fought stalwartly and put together an 8-0 run of…...

It was a beautifully cloudy, warm morning in Fort Collins. It was a great day for a protest. Save Our Stadium Hughes, the group who has relentlessly fought the soon-to-be constructed on-campus football stadium at Colorado State University, met on the steps of the school’s Administration Building, just feet from the picturesque Oval. There were around 50 protest participants, some…...

Even with leading scorer and likely best passer J.J. Avila going down in the first half with an ankle sprain, the Colorado State Rams men’s basketball team caught fire from outside and dominated the glass inside to win 71-59. It began nearly perfectly for Colorado State, as they ran out to an 8-0 lead on the strength of their best…...

After a fantastic finish to the regular season, which included five straight wins and multiple honors for Colorado State men’s basketball players, tourney time begins. For 26-5 CSU, it’s been a season full of mostly ups – including a Top-25 ranking – and only a few downs. While the Rams, who sport a 26th-best RPI in the nation, likely have…...

J.J. Avila is enjoying a good week. That’s putting it lightly. First and foremost, Avila was named Mountain West Player of the Week for his two great games, leading his Colorado State Rams to two victories over the Nevada Wolfpack and Utah State Aggies. In those two wins, Avila scored 27 and 29 points respectfully. His regular season finale performance…...
