Re: Wyoming Attendance

There is a thread about it on their message board. Apparently the coaches haven't been fan friendly, and they botched a renovation of the stadium that ended up making the fan experience worse. They've had declining attendance for a few years, it would seem.

As long as it’s not a publicity funded arena I could get behind hockey.
Not sure Smith can pull it off himself. He’s better at just buying stuff
I think he's trying to piggyback off the Olympics to get an arena that he doesn't have to pay a cent for.

Re: Net Ranking flaws

While I understand that we don't have the full formula, I'm interested to hear ideas on tweaking it. IMO, beating a q1 opponent on the road by 20-30 points should be taken into account, but beating a q4 team by the same margin at home should not have as much effect.

Can they change it mid season? That would be very amusing to see these teams drop out of rankings when they have very few q1/q2 wins and haven't played on the road

Re: A pattern of our DCs compared to performance

On a somewhat related note, it kind of surprises me that we don't see more former quarterbacks as defensive coordinators (or maybe we do, and I just don't know it). It seems that would be the best position to identify offensive tendencies and what would be best to undermine them.
