Re: WNIT

Are people actually complaining about women's basketball? No one cares. Joe does a good job of fielding a respectable team and more importantly he has a bunch of outstanding young women on the roster. There are about 10 people total that care if they win or lose. They represent the university well....

Re: Good Showing for Dewey

Rounds 6 and 7? Weren't people saying Wingard was a lock for second round not that long ago? No, never. You must be thinking Granderson who was widely projected as a third rounder prior to his legal issues. Pretty sure Granderson was generally thought as late first rounder early second, and Dewey w...

Re: WNIT

What Joe has done with the sustained success of the women's program is something to be proud of. The women's program is competitive year in and year out. The women's team has a cumulative 3.7 GPA and virtually graduates all of its players. That is unreal for any D1 program! Hell, most D1 programs h...

Re: Bigelow

This is bad. :willybs: no sugar coating. The Pokes are a run-first team (even when we have a top 10 NFL draft quarterback) and there is ONE guy who has run the ball in a college game on the roster. At least last year Nico was a senior. Technically walk-on RB Brett Brenton has received a few carries...

Re: Bigelow

Damn. That is a big loss and a real bummer because he has talent and a different skill set than Valladay. Pure guess, but I am wondering if someone at Fresno State wasn't in his ear to transfer there. His hometown is Fresno but they didn't offer him a scholly apparently for whatever reason. True sop...

Re: University of Wyoming to get a new President!

What exactly are the trustees supposed to say? They can't say anything meaningful without inviting a lawsuit. The fact that she isn't being fired indicates we're not talking about malfeasance or wrong-doing. So everything else would be pointless to discuss in public. Lawsuit for what? Nichols has a...

Can't keep the goodens, damn, why doesn't anybody transfer to W.Y.O, lol
I too am puzzled as to why we don't seem to be gaining transfer interest despite going 8-24 overall and finishing 2nd to last in a terrible Mountain West Conference and also losing our best player to graduation.

Re: University of Wyoming to get a new President!

Everything I have heard the engineering facilities were completed because the College of Engineering made it happen and had little to do with the president. There are a number of things she has done that has left me unimpressed. :twocents: Oredigger, ever consider that the BOT are keeping their rea...

Re: University of Wyoming to get a new President!

This sums up my thoughts pretty well. The trustees are creating a shitshow. 5 presidents in 6 years? that's pathetic. We deserve some explainations. I wonder if this paragraph from this piece has anything to do with her outster. They want someone who will agree with them and be a yes man and willin...

Also, I hope the BOT is not public with the hiring process as they were the last time. This keeps a lot of good & qualified candidates from applying.

Re: University of Wyoming to get a new President!

I have a real problem with the Board of Trustees not being transparent with its apparent decision not to renew Nichols’ contract. The board is citing it being a ‘personnel matter.’ This is the President of the University and not some administrative assistant or adjunct faculty member and the public ...

University of Wyoming to get a new President!

Wow, this was very unexpected and almost out of nowhere. President Nichols will move to a faculty position when her term expires on June 30, 2019. Statement from Board: “The Board of Trustees is excited for future opportunities for the University of Wyoming, the state of Wyoming and its citizens,” b...
