Paul Weir needs to be fired.  New Mexico can’t be deceived by the record.  The roster is a mess.

I don't see Weir being fired after this season and possibly next season.  He has some good recruits coming in and still has two years left on his contract while the Lobos will be paying off Davies buyout.  Don't see it happening, but I agree that he should be let go.  I think he is in over his head right now.  Maybe with the new tv deal the Lobos will be able to pull the plug on Weir.

I disagree, he’ll be there for awhile.

At the very least, Weir needs to get some assistants in there that can play a little bad cop to his good cop.  Some loud guys who demand discipline and effort.

That’s  what’s weird about this year’s “Doctor Weir” (he’s even announced as Dr. Weir in the Pit).... last year, he was quite emotional! A yeller and a screamer; i remember seeing a pic of Vance Jackson, holding Weir back as he was screaming at a ref!

This year, he’s calmer, more docile. He's gone into “preppy, cool professor “ mode. Id love to see him come out in a regular suit and tie, And show some fire again.

The head coach needs to be the one that instills the discipline and identity of his team. Steve Fisher was an institution whose teams had a set identity and Brian Dutcher learned everything he could to carry on that identity for his team and the transition was seamless.  

Dave Rice had a bunch of assistants to be good cop/bad cop to make up for his shortcomings and it was a disaster. Stacey Augmon was a hardass as one of our 'bad-cop' assistants and "good-cop" Justin Hutson thought he was too aggressive and borderline abusive to the players in practice (which was why that little puss Justin took a demotion to run back to SDSU)--which I don't really blame him for tbh.  

Then you had Heath Schroyer who despite being the 4th ranked assistant on the totem pole, just took the team away from Rice. Which led to this infamous scene of Schroyer taking over the huddle in a key possession during the waning seconds of the game, and Rice is playing the critical role as a table for the whiteboard while catching up on some light reading.

lol we can't tell if you're being a smartass or not. Until UNLV gets back to the dance, there's probably enough space to do donuts in the parking lot during gametime.

Plenty of free parking, lol. The lot was practically empty when I came in a few minutes ago.

What a script flip, UNM can't shoot the 3 and turnover prone and in this game they're on fire from 3 and really protecting the ball w/ only 2 turnovers.

Credit to Weir.  Let's see if they can keep it up

Took them 6 mins to wake up after that Antonio opening 3.

 

Rebs looking like the better team IMO. Just need less TO's and let UNM keep shooting. Those averages eventually even out.
