Re: OT: Could 2020 just end now!!!!!!

First off, the one incident comment was brought up because you literally said "To take one incident and make it indicative of the nation at large is questionable, at best." To the second part of your comment, no, not all white people are racist, but yes this absolutely is a racist nation , has been...

Re: OT: 2020 Cheyenne Frontier Days cancelled

Looks like Cody is pushing back on this. Trying to find a way to get their nightly rodeo up and going and still hold the Stampede and the Xtreme Bull Riding competition.

Re: 2021 OOC Schedule Now Complete With Addition Of UConn

Will UConn even be FBS by then, or will they drop to FCS. They cut a ton of sports today. Depending on how long this COVID stuff continues, we could be looking at some big changes in college sports. That written, I have seen that UConn may be dropping from 24 to the minimum of 16 to stay FBS. I wou...

Re: Wyoming Adds Cal Poly to 2024 Football Schedule

Are we talking low point for the football program or worst on the field season? They are not necessarily going to be the same. A young team in year 2 of a new coach in the middle of a major overhaul of the program with little experience going 2-10 with two conference wins vs an experienced team in y...

Re: Time to vote again for the ship

It's THIS close against South Dakota State, really?! We'd get killed against Notre Dame or Alabama. I was surprised South Dakota State made it as far as they did. The Jackrabbit logo is too cartoonish for my taste. Anybody here thinks it is better than the Army or Penn State (the logo not the insti...

Re: Will there be football this fall?

First, being disgruntled with a communist-facist regime has nothing to do with their biological ethnicity. I don't like communist regimes whether they be German, Russian, Chinese, Korean, or some old white guy from Vermont. Admittedly, I am a little cranky this morning. Point being I don't like or t...

Re: NCAA Tournament to Be Played in Empty Arenas

Yeah, I am expecting it to be cancelled as well. Wyoming 3A/4A Basketball and Speech and Debate state events have been cancelled. With all the conference tourneys being cancelled, and then the insurance side I don't see it being played.

Re: New UW President: Edward Seidel

A good university president understands that athletics (specifically football & basketball) are the front porch of the university. Let's hope he understands that. I haven't looked real closely at his employment history, but hopefully he was at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign during the year...

Re: Matching Funds for West Side War and Pool

It's pretty sad that our legislature hasn't taken any of this seriously. We need to toll I-80, I think there was a study a few years back that determined over 90% of that traffic neither originates or ends in Wyoming. Toll it, and pass the buck on to the consumers who are using it to transport thei...

Re: Ready to be a P5 farm league?

The one thing I would like to see is some sort of anti-tampering rule in place somewhat like the professional leagues have. I don't want programs coming in and recruiting current players of other programs. Enter the transfer portal first then let recruiting commence. That may be how the rules are, I...

Re: How "screwed" should we really feel?

This is just the life of a G5 program. At program's like Boise State, holding onto a coordinator for 3 seasons means either 1) they got lucky af this time around or 2) this coordinator hasn't been convincing in this role. The financial gap in this sport is getting ridiculous. When it comes to bolti...

Re: How "screwed" should we really feel?

Was wondering to post this here or in the MSU/CU related thread. Having good coaches poached is the nature of college football. Mid to low level "P5" teams face it with their head coaches as well, and even sometimes though more rarely a top tier program will get a head coach head hunted by other to...

Re: MWC Finalizes $270M Media Rights Deal With CBS Sports, Fox

Overblown, when you think about it that 1.8 million would only be $150,000 to each school if it was spread out. That's not that big of a deal. Having Boise in the MWC is worth more than an extra $150K to each school. I get it, it's the principle of the matter. But no AD or President in the country ...

I'll give it two seasons before a MW coach complains about the Mountain Division being much stronger than the West Division. 2019 championship featured at best the 4th best MW team, 2020 might be worse. We might not have 2 divisions in future. The bsu fiasco might end up being more than just bsu le...
