Re: NMSU is biting the curb

The Broncos are playing aggessive and it's paying off. NMS seems to have no game plan and is very hesitant on their 3-point shooting. If NMS is within 15 at the buzzer, I'll be surprised.

We could really use Pane to break down the defense and Nebold and Green to spot up and hit from the outside.

Re: NAR: Nevada and NMSU tied with 3 minutes left

NMS winning is one for the good guys. I hope the Aggies throttle BSU, too. That would make it 0-4 for those departing teams. I wish UNR would quit blaming their crappy season on being a young team. Well hold on to a junior or senior, then. I think I'll send Aslowwhiteguy a tissue.

Re: Seeding scenarios and who we want to win

I think USU is the best team in the conference by a long ways. I think we have the best coach. I also think we'll have double the fans at the tourney of any other team there. I think we're hungry. So it doesn't matter to me who is seeded where and who plays who. Does anyone know whether it's a fixed...

Here are some thoughts about last night. You are correct about our half-court offense. Stew kept trying to get into it even under the NMS pressure. We had to get 5 points down with the time waning before he cut Pane loose to create his own shot. Green is completely unprepared to handle the ball unde...

Re: ugly ugly game

I hope none of the NCAA committee was watching the game. If so, we'll be an 18 seed. Wow, Stew must not have liked what he saw in Jardine by replacing him with Grim in crunch time. Jardine was certainly the LV0 of the game (least). A win a win, but we certainly didn't look like a top 25 team. We loo...

Note to coaching staff

I think we missed something in not picking up Charles Abuou and I think Mr. Rogers is going to be very good for BYU. Abuou looks to be anything but raw and out of control, which waere the knocks on him as to why we didn't recruit him heavily to USU. Alas!
