Re: Future recruiting advice for Odom

After thinking about what changes are in store, I think the players who show potential are the loser. You can no longer add a player to redshirt and work on part of their game. If a player needs to put on weight or is a defensive liability you pass, and take a more polished player with a lower ceiling

North Dakota, UNLV and New Mexico, but even there New Mexico and UNLV are both road games and not gimmees. We have a long way to go after the debacle of last year. This isn't going t...

Transfer Portal Question

No search firm used when hiring new coach.

I thought this was interesting, and wonder if this means Mr. Hartwell will only be interested in a select few openings that may come up. I assume (possibly incorrectly) there is an incentive for an AD to use a firm if they are thinking of moving on. Even if it’s just getting a resume in front of dec...

Re: NCAA vs athletes supreme court case going badly for the NCAA

Everyone sees the problem of coaches making millions while the athletes get a scholarship and a small stipend. The problem comes when trying to keep a level playing field. When players start getting paid, the same teams will always be on top because they will pay better. Even in the Mountain West th...

What’s crazy is Utah had extended K so they also owe him $7 million. They spent over $8 million before they even started with the new contract - oh to have PAC12 money
They just used the savings from furloughing the entire athletic department last year. Times are tough.
