Re: Border War with Sheeep

Haha. Holy Sh#t. Up 19 and find a way to blow it. This game proves that this team has the talent to compete. When they are confident and flowing, they can hang. When they get down or things don't go their way, they cannot self correct. If only they had a coaching staff that could help them right th...

Re: Something to think about

I don't think Bohl even considers CU. It would not be a cultural fit for him. His style also does not fit a PAC school. Mich St would have been a much better fit for a guy like Bohl. Don't fool yourself. Just because we all would hate to lose Bohl and because we all have our feelings about the poli...

Re: @New Mexico

Pokes had some momentum going at times but ......they don't have all lot of skill, they aren't very smart when handling the ball, can't shoot from 3, and shoot free throws like they don't really care what happens. They are really hard to watch. Was talking to Kevin McKinney the other day and almost...

At least you're seeing a pretty good game. Wyo. hanging tough. Is Hunter Thompson in the doghouse or is there some medical reason he hasn't played?

Re: Wyoming at San Jose St

1-15 (6.7%) from three at the half. Pathetic. I never cease shaking my head at how poorly Hunter Thompson has been developed and utilized by this staff. On the bright side, only one more month, or so, until we find out who Tommy Burman's next MBB experiment is! You can't blame lack of development o...

Re: Wyoming at San Jose St

Good seeing the Pokes pick up a win. Hope its not the last this season I ask this with all sincerity: Why do you hope it's not the last win of the season? Will you feel better about the program if we finish 2-16 in the MW instead of 1-17? Do you realize we shot 5-26 from 3 on Saturday? What other t...

Re: Wyoming at San Jose St

Whatever the win prevented ( an 0-fer), the level of play by this team is nothing short of high school level. For the season,Jake Hendricks has shot 186 3's and made 32 percent of them. The rest of the team is even worse. The 2 Hunters have shot an even worse percentage than Hendricks. Foster has sh...

Re: Wyoming at San Jose St

Amazing, really. We we're 1-15 from 3 in the first half. Jake Hendrix punishing the rims as only he can. And yet, we only had 1 offensive rebound. Against any other team, we'd be down 20. Yet we're only down 1! I've had enough today. I'm amazed and bored at the same time. There's an entire month of ...

Re: Utah State

We have no discernible plan on offense. I'm so tired of watching it. I'll try and explain it to you from a different perspective. We have no size, and therefore, no post up threats. Not one player on the team is really capable of creating his own shot. Teams guard us on the perimeter so we can't ge...

Re: Fresno St vs Wyoming

How does Hunter Thompson play 25 minutes and have 0 rebounds? His 6 inch vertical leap doesn't help much Rebounding has almost nothing to do with jumping ability. It's positioning and anticipating how the ball bounces off the rim. Brad Jones was barely 6 feet tall and would often get 7 or 8 rebound...

Re: Fresno St vs Wyoming

I'm tired of getting out rebounded every game.. for the last eight years Is it the coaching or the players? Clearly, it must be both. How does Hunter Thompson play 25 minutes and have 0 rebounds? He shot 1-7 from the field. I would think he would rebound at least 1 of his own misses. Either, his in...

Re: If we can keep Maldonado, Foster, Marble, Taylor, Thompson for the next coach..

While Edwards is a horrible coach, it’s not all on him. I guess I don’t see the talent you see. Few if any of these guys would see meaningful minutes in a good team. The title of this post is delusional. It assumes some other D1 school would want any of these players. That's debatable. Then it assu...

Re: @Nevada

This is the improvement we need to see from Edwards to give him another year. Little early in the morning to start sniffing glue. A close lose against a so so team means nothing. Plus, why was Thompson on the bench when we were on defense? He's the only big body we have. He might have accidentally ...

The fanbase in Wyoming is fanatical. it's rabid. But I don't think the fan base wants to traverse the state to care more about the game at hand than the brown and gold team playing in it.

Re: So how did the Pokes get into this coaching mess?

I don't know the ins and outs of a school acquiring a coach. But would placing ads in newspapers for one work? Then let the applications come in rather than the school calling coaches. Best thing to do is to watch the best performing coaches in the Sunbelt, MAC, AAC, C-USA, and FCS conferences. Loo...

Re: #7 Asstecs to town

A couple of obvious observations: First, why advertise "Welcome to 7220" when I haven't seen a Wyoming basketball team take advantage of the altitude in a long, long time. If anything, Wyoming always looks like the team suffering from the altitude. Second, there was a time when the #7 team in the c...

I doubt anything is done before the year ends. Honestly, we could bring in Rick Pitino and it wouldn't matter. The next coach better be a recruiter.
