Re: And Wyoming Just Won

They had some nice pieces with Maldonado, Marble, Thompson, and Foster but they’ve had some other players step up. They’ve always had some talent but never had much of an identity or system under Edward. Linder is a much better coach though and it’ll be interesting if they can build some success. T...

Re: Craziest stat of the season

Brock is playing well. He is taking good shots. He is also playing really good defense, i am happy for him. You are watching a different Miller than I am. Brock’s lateral speed is terrible. He can’t seem to keep in front of his man. Queta erases some of Brock’s defensive mistakes. His 3-pont shooti...

Re: Our guards are better than expected.

By next season this will be Worster’s team. Worster’s shooting will need to improve for it to be “his” team next year. 21% from behind the arc and 39% overall will not get it done. I really have liked Ashcroft’s game. He is undersized but handles the ball well, is a shooter and has a GATA attitude....

Brock is much more maligned than he should be. He has been a starter on two very good Aggie teams.

Here’s my hot take — I think we’ll see a big...

Pathetic post indeed. One game against a team that has dominated us for decades. Pandemic, new system and new coaches, missing starters.

Hopefully our players are a little more resilient than our fans.

And BSU didn’t have to cope with the pandemic, too?

I think Miller is a better defender than he gets credit for. He puts it out there IMO. But, I do hope he gets less PT.
Miller’s lateral speed as well as his quickness seem slow to me. He doesn’t seem to be able to stay in front of his man.

He should become a TV or radio analyst. If Stew were to take up an analyst job he’d probably be like Johnny Miller’s golf commentator gig. He would not mince words. He wouldn’t be PC. He’d call out those that needed calling out. And he’d let loose with a few profanities. He’d last about two games.
