  1. I’m happy that an American will be home for Christmas.
  2. I The MWC isn’t the ACC either but that didn’t stop Addazio from cratering CSU.
  3. Addazio 2.0. Addazio was a .500 coach at his only P5 stop (Boston College) with a conference win percentage of 39.3%. Odom was a .500 coach in his P5 stop with a conference win percentage of 40.6%. I hope he has a better personality that Addazio who was a clown.
  4. CSU has used metal detectors and clear bag policy for several years now in Moby Arena.
  5. Top 50 Teams by Conference Big 10 - 7 SEC - 7 Big 12 - 6 ACC - 5 MWC - 5 Big East - 4 PAC12 - 4 AAC - 2 Sun Belt -2 WCC - 2 CAA - 1 C-USA - 1 Ivy -1 MAAC -1 MAC - 1 Wac - 1
  6. So far, so good. Next few weeks are really important. CSU took a huge hit over the weekend with that Quad 4 loss to Northern Colorado. They have what looks like three really good Quad 1 and Quad 2 opportunities over the next two weeks.to get back on track. Other MWC teams needs to make sure they don’t pick up any bad loss like that CSU loss and it will be certain three bids.
  7. Former CSU setter and 3-time MWC Player of the Year Katie Oleksak is a Graduate Assistant at USD.
  8. Saw the Lions on Wednesday night in Fort Collins. They are a very physical team that make it very difficult to score inside. And they have a solid pair of guards who can control tempo pretty well. CSU had to play really well to beat them. I’m a little surprised that Will Baker didn’t do more damage inside. CSU’s backup big shot 7-8 in the interior in only 18 minutes.
  9. CSU and Nevada with a pair of big stinkers. WYO produced a hall pass stinker.
  10. LMU has a solid pair of guards who know how to get into the paint.
  11. Until he gets @RebelRobert seal of approval he will continue to mull it over.
  12. Rams bigs combined for 37 points. John Tonje and Isaiah Rivera, who average 29 points as a pair, scored 6 today. The issue wasn’t the bigs. It was the defense that No showed for the entire game and a coaching staff that fell asleep in the second half. it’s hard to get defensive rebounds when you’re always pulling the ball out of the net.
  13. Bummed that the USA lost. Excited by the fact that a team with a rich history like the Netherlands was so concerned about the USA that they played low block, counterattacking football. The USA future is bright. Might take a whole generation to get even further in the knockout stage but you can see it coming.
  14. Tell Todd Graham he’s late to the party. Steve Addazio has already made that claim.
  15. Three players have scored goals in the last three World Cups. Ronaldo, Messi, and the Swiss’s Shaqiri. Hard to believe a guy who washed out at Liverpool would be in the same sentence with those other two.
  16. I thought they were the Occidental Tourists.
  17. Rick Neuheisel just said that Patterson is close to being hired
  18. ASU-Reno had a big win at Colorado last night to open the PAC-12 schedule. Desmond Cambridge nailed the winning three ball with about 3 seconds on the clock to complete a comeback from a 15-point halftime deficit.
  19. It’s more relevant because they invented the jump shot.
  20. Nah. Wyoming obviously has a lot of upside with a healthy Maldonado and Ike.
  21. San Diego States two losses are to Top 10 teams. The quality of their schedule is leaps and bounds beyond any other MWC team. Quality wins already over BYU, Stanford, Ohio State , and UCI. As for Wyoming, they are clearly missing Ike. Where they finish in the MWC is unclear because no one knows how long Ike will be out. They definitely have not played very well. While there were encouraging signs yesterday against Santa Clara, I’d be concerned that they actually lost a game where they shot 12-23 from beyond the arc. My biggest surprise with Ike out is that Linder hasn’t found a lineup without Hunter Thompson on the floor. Thompson played more minutes than anyone yesterday. Ive watched a lot of games. My rankings are based on what I’ve observed to date. I do think most of the teams still have some upside.
  22. Only one game today and none tomorrow. Here’s how I see it: San Diego State - Don’t be fooled by the two losses and a near miss against Irvine. They are the class of the MWC this year with an absolutely loaded roster. Utah State - Aggies are playing awfully well. Portal add Taylor Funl had been good and Steven Ashworth has been fantastic. New Mexico - Great win over St Mary’s yesterday. Great backcourt depth with freshman Donovan Dent added to an already good pair. UNLV - Still undefeated and defending like madmen. If their offense develops at all, they’re poised to make a jump Colorado State - Isaiah Stevens has returned a month earlier that expected and the Rams look ready to take off Nevada - Wolf Pack are much improved . Much more connected than last season. Boise State - Great D, inconsistent O. Still looking to find themselves beyond their starting lineup which is solid. Wyoming - No Ike and recently no Maldonado. Searching for answers in their absence. San Jose State - Much improved over last season. Fresno State - Decent players, good defense, lousy offense. Coach on a hot seat. Air Force - Young,and improving. Where did this freshman Corbin Green come from? He’s averaging 15 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 blocks. One final note - I don’t think there’s a lot of difference between New Mexico at 3 and Boise State at 7.
  23. It’ll be a Quad 1 for sure.
