  1. Let's not argue that Purdue is or isn't a high profile program, because that is an idiotic argument. And the fact that part of your argument for them is being 3-1 vs. Nebraska under frost just shows how low of a bar you are using.
  2. Johni Broome from Moorehead State is in the portal. 6'10" 235. Averaged 17 & 10 with 4 blocks per game. He's a Florida kid...but he'd be great in the middle for us
  3. Manny bates from NC state I now in the portal. Would be a great get. Big time defensive presence as a shot blocker... I've seen no news on our interest but he'd help solidify our back end, for sure.
  4. Malcolm came from an 8 man powerhouse in swi iowa, same school that produced nate meier who started for 3 years on the DL for iowa...town has less than 1000 in it...or right at it. He went from being the biggest and fastest on the field to being very small for his position. The kid came in at 185 and was listed at ILB. We all knew he would be a project type kid. He's got talent...he played the joker position in HS on defense, so he was everywhere and was typically a blitzer. He was way better as a running back in HS, IMO. I hope he works out and stays. But if he's falling more and more behind and isn't sniffing the 2 deep by next year, he should probably look at a smaller school.
  5. Kj would be a solid addition to the front court. Ovc player of the year, I believe.
  6. Was just coming to post this! Good job.
  7. Big pick up. The "you can't win with transfers" narrative is old and soft. Everyone has transfers...even Kentucky and Duke are getting into the transfer market. It's not about taking or not taking transfers...it's about getting the right ones. We haven't really done that yet, here's hoping this year is the year we put the puzzle pieces together! Great start.
  8. Lost by two...with an Andre tipped in missed free throw (for the other team), with a verge 10 second violation that is as silly as you'll ever see, and a 2 on 1 fast break with tre and verge where an easy bunny was missed...that's not including any fouls or no calls...as they happen every game, and typically both ways. We just found ways to lose. Kind of indicative of how a majority of the season went.
  9. Maybe I'm way off here...so please help me put if I'm wrong here...but at these coaches all conference teams...aren't the players nominated by their own coaches? If a player isn't nominated by their own coach, they can't get voted on. That's the way it was back when I was coaching. If I didn't nominate a player, they weren't on the ballot. Also, HM players typically were those nominated with at least 1 vote (or set minimum).
  10. To be fair, #2 on the assists list is not really a point guard either. He's listed as one but it's more a geo baker or harper Jr bringing it up the floor. #3 isn't even a starter. So suffice it to say, the B1G doesn't seem to have a stud facilitator at the PG position this year. I have dogged verge most of the season because of the way he played...and I don't think I was wrong about it then. However, he is playing extremely well over the last 3-4 games and deserves kudos, for sure. Wish he would have "figured it out" sooner but he could still be a key piece to a late season surprise run!
  11. I want to be so happy for them...and I am...gbr! But where in the fresh hell has this been all season? They played great...shared the ball, played decent enough defense, gang rebounded, energy galore! Makes you wonder what could have been! Here's to a few more wins to close out the season!
  12. Tim miles took over a program that was 17-13 the previous season, didn't have a winning record at csu until year 4...didn't make it to the ncaas until year 5...was 17 games under .500 at csu and 22 games under .500 in the mountain west. Linder has only been at Wyoming 2 years...not 5. Both winning seasons and an ncaa birth and potential conference championship in year 2. Also, miles finished his tenure here with an above .500 record and won 22 and 19 games his final 2 seasons before he got canned. Linder is not tim miles...but even tim miles would be better than what is currently our situation.
  13. Hey guys...my name is Jeff Linder. I am currently the head basketball coach at the university of Wyoming. The two years prior to my arrival, Wyoming was 8-24 and 9-24, respectively. My first year in Laramie, we went 14-11, led our league in ppg and 3pt% and now this year we are currently 22-4, leading the mountain west conference and NCAA tournament bound. My base salary is $225,000 with incentives to go up to $260,000. You won't be the only suitor...so act swiftly in your pursuit. Sincerely, Jeff
  14. Was at the game today. If that's how they play the rest of the season...we could be in for a deep run. Fun to watch.
  15. Hot damn, forgot what that felt like. Hopefully this one starts a good stretch run. Verge was fantastic tonight. Now go beat those damn chicken hawks.
  16. Jeff Linder-Wyoming. Guy can coach and his style is big 10 ready.
  17. That's the thing...I don't think anyone is asking for championships here...we're just asking for competence. One a deez days alice...one a deez days...
  18. This is one instance where I am glad I don't watch games live. I record them all and watch later, so i can fast forward commercials...now I don't even have to waste my time with that apparent sh!$ show. Good lord.
