Re: wyo tickets

I am going to be Logan for a dinner on Wednesday night - hoping it ends early enough for me to get into the game at the end. I never try and get into a game late. What is the policy about letting people in part way during the 2nd half?

Re: Our NCAA Tourney struggles

Completely agree with the sentiment that the scheduling strategy has been the biggest problem. We had some teams that could have won some games but they had never played the kind of competition we faced in round 1. And better scheduling would greatly increase the odds of better seeding.

I'm sure the team that wins the NIT is better than 20 or so NCAA teams. Especially many of the non power conference autobids. If we can't get to NCAA bid I think a run in the NIT could be pretty exciting.
Unquestionably true on both points.

Last year many predicted that we would fall apart after our coaching staff left and we ended the season on a sour note in Boise. Thus, we would lose our bowl game to the mighty North Texas Eagles.

How did that turn out?
So you are saying if GA quits today we will for sure win?
