  1. I'm fearful they could all survive and IMO it diminishes what post season should mean like too many bowl games do.
  2. I'm with you. IF it could wipe out the other pay to play tournaments, all of them, then it's a no brainer to expand the second tier tournament.
  3. I've noticed that teams that can match up properly take Duncan out as far as they can and then just smoke him to the whole forcing the entire defense to shift and usually ending up with a layup/dunk/FT's. He's a liability on both ends now and should be getting maybe 10 minutes PT, not 35. Reid is hot or cold scoring but always a defensive liability. The step up this team takes via graduation is huge for next season.
  4. They freaking have to, since Leon leans on his two seniors who are stinking up the late season.
  5. Lol at Rice for not playing Hobbs in the second half after going 3-3 for 7 points in a short 8 minute stint in the first half. Lives and dies with his seniors and Reid played 32 minutes for 6 points and 3 TO's. Inside guys were too athletic for Bronco 4's and 5's. We knew that coming in. Broncos always get homered by refs, at home and on the road. Must be something to it, like they're slow and they reach.
  6. They're the best senior pair for sure. And the fact they are seniors is why they are so scary from here on out. Last dance.
  7. Not sure this one will be close unless either Duncan or Jessup get real hot while Hutchison and Austin remain hot. Reid won't be enough from outside to make an inside out game work. Nevada is going to put 70+ on the board. The weakness of no real athletes on the post shows up in matchups with Nevada, UNM, etc. If you have a dominant inside game, you can beat Boise even if they're on their A game.
  8. 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.
  9. Peaking in February is problematic.
  10. 1. no one's bragging, this is a recruiting board to report recruits. 2. I have been a supporter of Menzies. 3. Boise beat your Rice led team with all world recruits and our scrubs. 4. You're a dolt.
  11. How many working synapses have you got. Be honest. I know I could count them on fingers and toes.
  12. Stafford never wanted him to leave Detroit and Prescott wants/needs him around too. He's more coach than actual backup it seems like.
  13. This pony can swim. That's it's only trick in 2017.
  14. I voted Boise because I think it could be almost any of the top 5-6 teams but of them all Boise has the most depth and I think that makes a 3 game run as likely for them as anyone else. They play better on the road too. And they can lose in round 1. Easily.
  15. the last FT's for Hutch, Dalton was barking some smack at him. After making both, Hutch smiled at him. That carried to the end of the game as it should, Has no one played before? It's normal testosterone sport.
  16. This year he gets a pass IMO. His NMSU teams seemed to just love playing ball. This year's team knows it's outclassed and it's got to be tough getting up for every game and sometimes you get up for a game and it starts like crap so you lose that energy. It's a young team pasted together at the last minute, after every school already signed it's recruits. I won't say he's going to be a big success in UNLV but I would sure give that man 3 seasons to see if he's got what it takes to get it done in Vegas.
  17. has to be a step up from Rice. His teams always play with passion anyway.
  18. If those are Menzie's recruits, that's amazing all by itself and should give some confidence he'll find talent when given a full year to do it.
  19. I wonder this season though. Leon's team are a bunch of youngsters and the post season rigor might help them grow a bit. That is if he would sit the 2 seniors (not happening) and truly use the tournament as a development tool. That's all a CBI, etc is good for IMO.
  20. As a Boise fan I'd be more than happy with an NIT berth this season. I was thinking .500 in November. They could lose the rest of their games and meet my preseason expectations.
  21. Boise has Jessup (2G), Hobbs (2G) and Dickinson (PG) Jessup (8.3pts, 3.3 rebs, 1.3 asst, 1 steal) has hit the wall but has started the entire season as a true. He's going to be a good one IMO. Smart and a great shooter. Eventual 2nd team all league guy. Dickinson looks better every time I see him but his upside doesn't match Paris Austin's so he's going to be a backup for 3 seasons then maybe. Hobbs has the most upside but hasn't broken through yet. I think there could be 2 all MWC types in those 3 but no future pros at this stage. Not even Euro ball.
  22. A donut for Brick. He earned it and he's been working on that performance for weeks. Glad he was able to pull it off. I credit Rice for refusing to sit him and encouraging him to keep it up! the Broncos could end up 12-6 in conference still and I would have taken that in November. And we get better by graduation.
  23. Football may be 'dead' but all that takes is one team to be relevant all season long in the polls and get the NY6 game. And pray for a playoff expansion. Basketball is very mediocre right now, but it's dramatic to claim in the ground forever. There are some very good freshmen and sophomores in the league playing now and some good coaches on them. Maybe the MWC as a whole is at rock bottom or maybe there's more agony to go but in D1 hoops any conference that's had a good history can return to that. Football has built their wall and we're in Mexico for now.
  24. Perfect timing with a new AD coming on to get a salary package upgrade to him ASAP. He still needs a couple years to get that going then you can let him take big coin somewhere else and you can find a youngster to take what he's built and not screw it up.
  25. I won't predict he's leaving, just pointing out that he could get contacted about a solid opening in the off season. My gut says he still has that plan to build something significant in Boise before he ever considers leaving seriously. Still you never know.
