  1. Blatant pandering for board activity. And it worked. Sad state of affairs for the once proud message board community.
  2. Hopefully it won't matter and Arena will be out of the picture in 1-2 years or less. He's a stop gap hire or at least should be.
  3. My guess is the top 4 is accurate as far as who. Maybe not that exact order. After that it's a real crapshoot.
  4. Ft Collins reminds me of Boise in 1980 or so. I guess that's why I like it so. Nostalgia.
  5. Wyoming for sure. Not even close; even with Ph being a UNLV poster.
  6. RIce couldn't sign a PF to save his life. But we're going to have 12 wing shooters to work with. Woot!!
  7. Well obviously. How about Cheyenne and Ft Collins, seeing as that's the point of the article.
  8. Cold climate states run by the GOP are good for mineral extraction companies, oil and hunting/fishing and the tea party. All things the baby boomers seem to hold dear. They're dying off.
  9. Well we of course seek your opinion over the scouting websites.
  10. You need to get out more often.
  11. Done deal.
  12. Socialism seems to work in college sports. At least at the big kid's table where money falls on the floor. The petrie dish is still cooking with the G5's IMO. Not sure what model works, if any, if you're looking for anything more than survival.
  13. I see Rafter's got a hint now on the Corral board. Ignore Ph. He's a little man looking for attention.
  14. Can't recall his name because it's a tough one. Goes by a nickname. Out of the midwest and just tripped to Virginia and has a couple B10 offers too. Will visit Boise and then one of the B10's according to the rumor. Athletic 3/4. Saw it last week so I'll see if I can find it. Apparently Rice has been on this guy longer than anyone on his short list for what it's worth.
  15. Saw a rumor where Rice and company are on someone other than Popoola. Someone who's tripping here soon so it will get out. He'd be the star of the class if they land him too.
  16. Funny you used 'worked up'. It was a poke on the Pokes because of that claim. I knew someone would jump on it. Your fanbase reminds me of ours; hyper sensitive.
  17. Does Espin own the rights to that tournament?
  18. Did someone actually suggest that the CBI trophy was a 'Major' title? Extra practices, yes.
  19. You can't argue with the level of interest in him.
  20. Heard the Fordham radio guy a minute ago talking about him. He's been a starter since he was freshman in the A10 and is more prototypical Euro (back to the basket is a strength, using the backboard from odd angles, etc) but was asked to take more 3's in the style of game Fordham was playing. Not sure 3's are his strongest suit at all, but he adapted to become a good 3 shooter. So maybe more a typical PF than Duncan. Less stretch, more athleticism. Fordham fans are not happy he's leaving either. Have to hold off judging this class until we see them play. Not happy that Leon can't seem to find the missing pieces to compete with Nevada, San Diego, etc on an athletic basis.
  21. Boise has offered a 2018 SF from Oslo, Norway who is playing HS ball in Katy, Texas at Obra D Tompkins HS...6'8" 180 Kristian Sjolund. Only Rice and High Point are on him so far.
  22. He's just trying to make the MWC great again. And he's as effective in his 'planning' as the tool who made that phrase famous.
  23. That first one was impressive. Kid's got hops for sure.
  24. True, but I'm not flexing on Rice with this one. He's got to produce next year or I give up on him being anything more than an average head man who's really likeable.
  25. If Boise isn't top 3 at least next season then Rice has more questions surrounding his true abilities than we're willing to admit. That is if they remain relatively healthy next year. Should be his best overall team and better than this year's version was all over the floor.
