"our offense, which is a complicated offense" - Craig Bohl

I chuckle whenever I read stuff like this.
As fans we tend to just see plays as "up the middle", "play action", "sweep", etc -- I do actually think the blocking schemes are pretty complicated. Maybe that's the problem.

Re: quit fooling ourselves

I imagine a world where wyonation members read a post like this, recognize it for what it is and ignores it.

Angry responses, insults and attempts to reason are exactly what a troll is after.

One day, maybe.

Re: New Commit-Gregory Milton iii

According to verbal committs Wyoming made the following offer a few days ago: 3/28/2019 - JUCO C Ethan Richardson (6-10, 245, 2★) has received an offer from Wyoming. - Per Link At least it's an offer to a big man. To my knowledge, he's the only big we have an offer to that isn't already committed t...

We deserve more. We need a new athletics director, basketball coach and offensive coordinator.
There isn't anything left of the dead horse you've been beating.

Re: Granderson in trouble

I don't think anyone thinks that. People think it's a two-way street. BUT unfortunately for men we have the higher responsibility.

Re: Granderson in trouble

Is a contract required before flirting, kissing, hitting on, etc.? That's the way things are trending. It's very confusing now. Seriously! I'm sure glad my wife didn't accuse me of rape or sexual assault before I kissed her the first time. I didn't ask permission. It would seriously suck to date no...

Re: Granderson in trouble

A man can only take responsibility for his own actions. The women did not commit a crime. Carl allegedly did. If you believe in personal responsibility I don't see how you can make the argument that the women putting themselves in a vulnerable situation somehow takes part of the blame off him. You ...

Re: Sad but reality

Now I'm not going to blame this all on Edward's. He didn't get our transfer suspended .... Would tighter discipline and expression of expectations made a difference? With D1 college athletes? No. If they are gonna be a screw-up, they will regardless of rules and expectations. Kids with super strict...

Re: Pokes vs. Evansville

Well one of the injured is just a chronic injury prone big man(seems to happen to big guys) another is a concussion so can't really put that on strength and conditioning and the other is back spasms which I am not sure if that is something that can be affected by S&C. So not sure how much blame can...

Re: Possible bowl gane

San Jose St. goes 5-7 a couple years ago and get into a bowl game and then this year too many bowl eligible teams, especially in MWC. Just kind of sucks. SJSU was left out of bowl games in both 2007 and 2013 (beat undefeated Fresno last game of season) with a 6-6 record. 2013 followed up an 11-2 se...

Re: Possible bowl gane

I guess I'll be the wet blanket on the bowl watch. I don't see any point in going to some minor bowl game in a 3/4 empty stadium. Our future star QB won't be playing anyway. The payout for these little bowls is so poor that the school probably loses money on the deal. It's a long a season and the p...

Re: Watched replay of the game

Yeah, he had 11 freaking tackles in that game (including a sack). Javaree Jackson had 10 (and Wilson had 12). Any time your D-Line leads your team in tackles, you're probably having a good game defensively. That or you're playing a team who is perfectly content with running 2-3 yard runs 50 times a...

Re: Mueller hate/blame is ignorant

No one hates him, and no one is blaming him. However, by every measurable statistic possible on a basketball court (including advanced analytics), he just isn't deserving of 35 minutes of play. That's all. If there's something he brings as far as intangibles that makes everyone around him better and...

Re: Rebounding!

Did the team as a whole actually switch their rebounding mindset, or did just a couple guys individually take advantage? I see that Maldonado and Taylor accounted for 7 of the 10 individual offensive rebounds.

On one hand, yes, you play to win. On the other hand, you also plan to win in the future. A win vs. UNM in a 5-7 season vs. An entire year of eligibility for the future face of the program I just can't bring myself to say we should start him no matter what. What if we end up sacrificing a year of el...
