Re: Recruiting

We didn’t get Queta until July 12th. Just because we don’t have someone now doesn’t mean we won’t land a quality recruit/transfer. Ahh a ray of sunshine over a sea of despair. Thank you! Not to pee in your Wheaties - but we got Brayden Bell in mid-June. So... Maybe that was the mistake. We should'v...

Re: Any predictions on the new players/players who redshirted last season

It doesn't seem like this coaching staff utiluzes redshirts as much as we're used to seeing at USU historically. I know McChesney did last year...has anyone else the last 2 years who wasn't required to? That isn't a bad thing in my mind - with the number of D-1 transfers each year it makes sense to ...

Re: Best / Worst Stadiums and where you have been

Best: USU - the atmosphere the students bring makes up for any and all flaws. Worst: BYU - that place feels like a conference center converted into a basketball arena.

Thanks for the clarification. I agree with USU0505, I'd rather see Boise than Nevada in a potential semifinal game. We need Boise to beat UNLV tonight and SDSU to hold serve against Nevada for Boise to grab the 3 seed.

Re: NCAA should change to 6 fouls

The real problem with changing fouls from 5 to 6 is teaching college refs to count that high. Based on the quality of reffing I've seen this year, that's going to be a real challenge.

I think Kuba is starting to help that group be used to playing with a big Center in the middle because that's what it will be like once Queta is back. It keeps the lineups and style similar.
