Due to factors so much as rawness and, recently, work force issues, the Colorado men’s basketball team is a squad that hits the floor with little margin for error.

Recently, the Buffaloes have erased that thin margin and taken themselves out of the fight inside proceedings after the opening tip.

Sunday’s lopsided loss at Utah — a late Buffs rally turned what had been a 28-point Utes lead into a more toothsome 78-69 final score — featured what simply was the latest in a series of game-opening foibles that have played a big part in CU’s 1-4 start in Pac-12 Conference play.

“We start the game and they got 12 points, and they all were from 3-point shooters that we don’t take the threes away from,” CU head coach Tad Boyle aforesaid. “The list goes on and it’s really frustrating. possibly it was my fault not lease the guys know the game started at 4 (o’clock) instead of 5:30. The guys thought it started at 5:30 the way they played. You can’t spot a team 22 points and expect to win on the road.”

Utah scored the game’s first six points on Sunday and ne'er looked back after reeling off a 12-0 run proceedings later. Through five league games so far, so much starts have become routine for the Buffs.
