Re: Refs

Usually when there are bad calls the announcers mention something and you hear loudly complaints from the fans.
Didn't hear any of that tonight. I thought the refs did a fine job. Just a couple misses here and there. Nothing egregious

Re: What seed are we getting?

I don't remember a 5 seed either in 02 or thereabouts when we were ranked in the top 25 and got left out entirely.

If Sweet Caroline or the one of the Martin twins dont get POY, I wouldn't want to be a fire extinguisher.
And if Musselman doesnt get COY, look out for the F-bombs.

Re: Who deserves the MWC POY?

I would be shocked if the Aggies got all 3. Even though we know they are all deserving. There is a bias as we all know against the Aggies and favoritism to Nevada and San Diego State. I think they snub Sam and maybe even Coach Smith, but give Queta the Freshman award. I've just seen these snubs too ...

Incredible that the team sitting in first place in the conference has 0 players recognized as player of the week. The dis...

Re: Net Rankings

Unfortunately, I don't really think any of these rankings really matter... the only ranking that matters is what conference we are in. Right now, Mountain West means 1 bid - Nevada. Unless we can't pull the upset and beat them in the tourney (aka SDSU last year), then we are not going. I don't know ...

Re: Aggies DON'T break into to 25 CFP

I'm not going to make the argument that Alabama isn't the favorite to win it all or shouldnt be ranked #1, but looking at who they've played, you can argue that our schedule hasn't been any easier than theirs. They have only played ONE team with a winning conference record. ONE! Every other team has...

Re: The Spectrum upgrades look really nice.

I've always thought they ought to just repaint the ones they already have. A nice Aggie Blue would be great! The hardest part would just be covering/taping down a dropcloth before they go to town on the spray painting. But maybe they can give out free season passes to anyone willing to help out?
