Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

Creighton will be fine. Really like this team. Baylor is and will be the worst matchup for CU as long as this program is in place. Their length and pace is the worst combo for who they recruit. And that's ok. Creighton creates problems for other programs. Still like this team a lot.

Opened up the door to allow developers to use it. The positive with occupation taxes are that they are a use tax so if you don't want to pay it you don't have to.
