  1. SDSU @ Boise State - Game thread

    Rice prefers shooters. There are a couple long, thin athletes on the bench in Criston and Alston but they're not ready. Rice knows he's being out athlete'd in the post season, at least I hope he knows. And the Bereal kid coming in is a Hutch clone at 18. Not sure about the other recruits. All I want at this point is just one of Fresno's post guys. We are missing a key ingredient, still.
  2. SDSU @ Boise State - Game thread

    Dutcher seemed to think Kell was his man to defend Hutchison more than anything else. But either way, mistake that he was in there late.
  3. Immediate Transfers

    so naive for such a genius. Your one and done's that are really not done after one, can boogie for the Big East with several suitors. Worst case scenario for any MWC team that can recruit and/or develop talent.
  4. I'll be honest. I'd apply to clean your house but would switch my brand of whiskey to Jameson right quick.
  5. SDSU @ Boise State - Game thread

    Did you mean 'typical game' when you typed final minute?
  6. SDSU @ Boise State - Game thread

    It was a bear hug, no attempt at the ball. By rule it is intentional. I hate the rule because there was zero intent to hurt, etc. It's just a garden variety foul to make FT"s happen.
  7. CSU @ Wyoming

    Extend Eustachy now!!
  8. MWC MBB Rebounding

    Boise's strategy was to go hard to the glass and start fast breaks. They are much better offensively that way as opposed to set half court O; which right now they're not very good at. MWC teams are getting back fast on D and stopping most breaks. Good strategy for them, Rice needs a plan B/adjustment to his half court O game.
  9. Current Kenpom All MWC team

    Nevada's athletes got him to foul a bunch. He's worthless on the bench.
  10. Boise State at Wyoming

    Should lose by a bunch more than we will with nothing from Jessup and Hutchison stinking it up in the second half. Two best offensive weapons and choke city. Too bad Haney got tired or whatever happened to keep him on the bench so long because Jorch and Wacker aint it. That's Bronco basketball every year they're 'good'.....when it counts, fold.
  11. Boise State at Wyoming

    2-3 extra possessions on incompetent refs. Trying hard for the cowboys. I just wish, once, that Boise would get home cooking like that.
  12. God, please no. If that happens here, I give up.
  13. Vandals getting new BBall Arena

    You put a 'B' there by accident and I bet your $10 won't hurt them.
  14. Vandals getting new BBall Arena

    About time. I like it too. And I think that size is about perfect for them. Create a loud environment and hopefully make tickets a tough get. Make it 100% students in there when they can and they won't lose with a decent team.
  15. January 4 MWC ranking - Telling it like it is !

    Worst effort of the year so far. But they're good at home and Tulane got them in Nawlins. Road losses to good teams don't hurt that much.
  16. The good teams all have at least 2 big weapons. Wyoming will have a shot in any game those 2 score 20+.
  17. The Rise and Fall of BYU athletics

    Sports. We're talking sports. We're all weird. Who cares? We want the most competitive sports on a national stage but we add SJSU and diss BYU because of religion. I'm in the camp that wants them to be different so we can rail on them more when we play them. But if they're good, I don't want them making Gonzaga and St Mary's better in hoops. And they'd be top 5 in football every damn year and we all know it. If they weren't, we'd all have too much fun crapping on them. Invite them hard, already.
  18. Boise State: The first real test of Menzies as UNLV HC

    This for sure. Jessup is off right now but will be back even better soon. That guy's focus and determination is money. And as good as he is on D, rebounds and passing, he's going to get his 30 minutes a game. Best pure shooter I've seen in a long time.
  19. 12-0 aint bad at all. Congrats UCF. Anyone proving the system is staged is good with me.
  20. What? This is Murica. Grab em. Just Grab em.
  21. Boise State: The first real test of Menzies as UNLV HC

    Sengfelder is an improvement over Duncan and I'm a Duncan fan. Rice wouldn't handle a 5* star freshman who's parents are thinking one and done very well. Not at all. He needs freshmen who have some skills but need work with a few seniors sprinkled in to lean on. Hutchison is the poster boy for that. Jessup and Hobbs are next up and so far Haney is making a move this season too. Hutch is a 2 guard at the next level as long as the 3 shot keeps improving like it has under Beckner. He's a point forward for us more often than not.
  22. Boise State: The first real test of Menzies as UNLV HC

    The biggest improvements for the Broncos this season are in rebounding and defense and IMO this year's 2 PG's are better at both than Paris was.
  23. Boise State: The first real test of Menzies as UNLV HC

    Not surprised there are fire Menzies folk out already. Fact is, he doesn't have as much to work with compared to Rice. I really like Johnson, Juiston and McCoy and some of what I saw of #14 (?) but other than that, meh. Rice had a good game plan, solid substitution patterns and Jorch showing up to wear McCoy down even more. And the Broncos will be in every game this year if Hutch plays like that, even with the sloppy play at times. Menzies needs 3 recruiting classes to repair the damage IMO, and he has to avoid too many transfers or one and done's. Chemistry is very important in hoops. Rice has grown as a coach every season and getting Beckner and the other assistant 2 seasons ago was huge.
  24. Boise State at UNLV

    For the record, I hate it when coaches stop their own team's momentum with a time out so they can think about the magnitude or set up some play; all that does is clutter the mind. Momentum is so key.
  25. Boise State at UNLV

    I noticed that at halftime when UNLV took twice as many 3's as the Broncos but then again, that reflects what the defenses were giving. UNLV defense of the 3 ball is outstanding so Boise didn't take their usual and didn't make as many either. They gave the 3 to UNLV because of respect for Juiston and McCoy. I think smart game plan on both sides but the surprise was offensive boards for Boise.
