Re: USU Tier 4 Job

Too much fluff in the tier descriptions. If I'm a coach I'm looking at how much $ will be deposited in my account as the most important metric. Show me the tier rankings of coaches salaries with accurate COL adjustments and my guess is we are firmly in tier 4. And probably not too far from the curre...

Re: Sam Merrill's draft potential?

I have no idea about NBA draft potential. But I REALLY like his college tournament potential. And he was clearly the best player on the court for all three MWC tournament games, regardless of any other player's draft potential. Micah Finn is a good player too. He definitely had an off night.

Sam's move that we never saw?

Didn't Sam say that he was going over that final play scenario and had a move cooked up, but then changed his mind after the sddude was defending so well?

1-I'd like to see the move and 2-Nice audible by Sam BAM Merrill.

SDSU knew EXACTLY what to expect yet he still pulled up, and BAM! Game over.

Re: NIT bracketology. I picked Utah St to win it all(#1 seed)

SDSU and all other Western teams without deep NCAA experience will generally do poorly in the NCAAs. This is partly because the in-conference reffing out West is more ticky tack than back East and in the NCAA tournament. I do think, however, the reffing out West is trending less and less ticky tack,...

Why I like Coach Smith

1. Fist bumps for opposing coaches after Wyoming game.

2. Regularly loses his voice.

3. Called timeout with 7 seconds left after Leon Rice called timeout with 12 seconds left after game was in the refrigerator.

4. Maybe most importantly, shows resilience in the face of opposition.

Guys, guys, guys. If Miller's 3 point abilities really are as good as Coach Smith's behavior implies (by letting him continue to shoot), then just think of how many threes he's going to hit in our remaining games. The more he misses, the more he HAS to make in future games to get up to his real perc...

I thought it was Upstairs Downstairs Abbey.

Does Downtown have any remaining eligibility? Even at his age he could probably shoot higher than 20%.
