  1. Nevada fans Eric Musselman.... can Nevada keep him?

    My only real take on Muss is that programs who can pay him that much ($3M) probably want to see him recruit a couple 3-4 star HS kids and turn them to NBA prospects/Naismith types. He's earning his stripes now with mostly transfers and dominating a MWC where UNM, SDSU and UNLV have slipped a bit. Not sure that plays in the money conferences. It might but I don't know of many coaches at that level that do. He's a hell of a coach for the MWC but if someone wants to pay him that much he's gone.
  2. Nevada #20 in week 16 AP poll.

    The Broncos say 'you're welcome'.
  3. UNLV at SDSU

    Actually I was suggesting it looks like he's disinterested sometimes. He's not the athlete Juiston is IMO. Btw, I was a fan of Oliver's too. Thought his game subtle at times but not for lack of effort.
  4. UNLV at SDSU

    Juiston is a stud. Love watching him play. If McCoy played with his passion, hoooweee.
  5. UNLV at SDSU

    Trending downward? They're gaining their footing and are probably back next year if not the year after. BTW, Boise swept you again this year. And Boise isn't exactly trending upward. 1-2 years doesn't make a trend in college hoops. One recruiting class and/or coaching change makes all the difference as you well know.
  6. UNLV at SDSU

    Shot glass?
  7. Air Force VS Boise State

    Hell, that would be refreshing for that program. And NIT is still a hope frankly, not assured at all.
  8. Nevada @ Boise State

    They do play better at home but that loss was a brick by brick giveaway. Good luck tonight.
  9. Nevada @ Boise State

    You mean lose to anyone. The USU loss hurt far worse. That's the wake up call fans fear every season, losing to a lessor team that the rest of the league beats up on when the Broncos are supposed to be 'legit' this time. Losing to Nevada isn't a crime. They're damn good.
  10. Hey Boise...

    Wolf pack is a mentality. Where they are a unit, together working as one. Think of it as a metaphor, if you can. If you can't, flame on.
  11. Nevada @ Boise State

    I'd love to see a breakdown of that. My impressions were if there was a big game in the Pavillion that meant something, his teams won it. Since then the Broncos lose meaningful games at home with regularity late in the season. They didn't choke so much as lack overall talent. He got them to play D like no one we've seen since too, mostly because of that lack of overall talent. That was a coach who took Fullerton to the final 8 in the NCAA's because he had talent. I still wonder what he'd do here now.
  12. Nevada @ Boise State

    It's mid-Feb. Time for hands around the throats of Bronco hoops players. They could have won every stat war last night but they were still destined to lose. There's a mental toughness missing from the program that's been missing since Dye left the program.
  13. Hey Boise...

    Dudley DoRight. He looks like a legit post from time to time but is still a work in progress. I expect pretty good things for him next season. He came to Boise as stretch 4, thinking he'd be the next Duncan.
  14. Bittersweet victory tonight, emphasis on bitter

    High basketball IQ. And more than enough talent to go with it. My hopes are he's 100% by this summer.

    I think he's the glue that held everything together. Never tried to be the man but could be when needed. This will make tournaments very tough on Nevada. Hate to see injuries put a dent on a solid season.
