Re: DeWeese to CSewe

His career trajectory appears to mirror Marty English. Maybe we will see him back as an assistant in Laramie someday.

Re: 24-25 Roster

. There were several times last season when the Poke’s effort level was not where it needed to be. Griffin was our best player last year, but it killed me when he would just step aside and allow transition dunks from opposing players. I get that he wasn’t going to come up with some spectacular bloc...

Re: 24-25 Roster

And with that the roster is complete. Good get IMO. This might be the most impressive signing to me…especially for the time of the year. Former Mr Basketball in Kentucky, part of a top recruiting class at UK, shot 40% from 3 last year for NCAAT Western Kentucky, I expect him to be a major contribut...

Re: 24-25 Roster

To even put a roster together with where Linder left us is impressive. I was sure we would be basement of the MWC next year; but if these guys can gel, we could be in the 7th place range.

Re: Football Times and TV Announced

Hill was held out for the first quarter. Bohl did not say why. I always wondered what the real story was as it was clear later that Hill bore a grudge against the coaching staff. Thank you for correcting me. Been wondering myself WTH happened between Hill and the coaches that got him benched in the...

Re: Football Times and TV Announced

Since 1988, Wyoming is 2-18 against byu. But I guess that is ‘dealing’ with them. I blame Burman for engaging with byu but at least we did get our return home game. Give up the dumb alphabet schtick. And I’d rather a ham and cheese sandwich anyways. Wyoming should have beat BYugly in 2019 Poinsetti...

Yes. But only if you make up senseless acronyms that no one will understand and scream it at the top of your lungs during the game.

Re: 24-25 Roster

Wyoming signs sophomore guard AJ Willis from Holy Cross. He was largely a reserve for Holy Cross averaging 15 minutes and 5.5 points a game in the 22 games he played. Seems to add depth and has 3 years of eligibility; it remains to be seen if he is a MWC caliber player. https://www.espn.com/mens-col...

Re: Football Times and TV Announced

Acronyms aside... I won't watch the BYU game. Because I sent an email of disgust to Burman when he scheduled these games. He bailed out a school that tried it's best to destroy the MWC and Wyoming in the process. Doing any sort of favor for BYU has always been a bad thing for Wyoming. Coach Eaton t...

Re: Football Times and TV Announced

Will the BYU game be a sellout? If not, it’s hopeless to see a sellout at The War. I hope so. Should be a good measuring stick for PBJ. Coaches of old dealt with byu and theoretically PBJ should be able to be competitive. . Since 1988, Wyoming is 2-18 against byu. But I guess that is ‘dealing’ with...

Re: Wrestling Transfers

Also, got a transfer from OU. (157) Really looking forward to next year, building some good depth. Yes - Jared Hill. He was a starter at OU. He is also a 2 time NCAA my qualifier. I’d imagine he is an immediate impact. https://soonersports.com/sports/wrestling/roster/jared-hill/16275 https://www.on...

Re: Wrestling Transfers

Pokes add 165 pound transfer Brant Whitaker from Missouri. Doesn’t appear he ever cracked Missouri’s lineup but I’d suppose he adds depth.

Re: One last thought on Linder…

Eh; lots of people find something else while they’re still employed if they’re on the verge of being fired. I had no hopes for this season had Linder stayed. He got off the titanic with the women and children. To use your metaphor - not only did he get off the titanic but, because of his timing, he...

Re: One last thought on Linder…

I really wish we knew the entire story in regard to Linder’s exit from UW. I get the feeling some animosity developed between Linder and Burman during the offseason. I don’t think Linder felt he was getting enough support at UW, either from the administration or the fans. Whether that is accurate o...

Re: One last thought on Linder…

He recruited and signed a transfer kid the day before he left. Would have loved to hear the BS he was spewing to that kid (who has now since signed with Nevada).

Re: Off-season: collective bargaining

It’s a fresh start. The 300 can form or become part of their own associations and create their own tournaments. The split will happen regardless. This is just a way to speed up that process and get back to relatively amateur athletics. Only problem is there will be no or very little revenue from tv...

Re: Off-season: collective bargaining

The 60% you are upset about is coming from reduced payments from the ncaa to the schools which is somewhere between 1 and what 30% of the revenue distributed to the school? If the ncaa is bankrupt, it would be 100% reduction in revenue distribution. I don't understand how that's better? How is bank...
