Re: Which newcomer will have most impact?

Alphonso Anderson looks really good. Who knows what'll translate to a game but I'm excited. I think he was a great addition. It'll be interesting to see if him or Bean starts at the Forward position. McChesney's shot is as good as advertised. It looks awesome. It's no secret he needs to gain some w...

Re: Could it be????

The MW is a better, deeper conference this year compared to last year. Where do you think the MWC as a whole has improved/is better? Some teams got worse, some got better but I don’t really see much of an increase overall as a conference. I think it is likely weaker this year. I hope I’m wrong bc t...

Re: Which newcomer will have most impact?

I think Bairstow will have the greatest impact due to what we have heard about his ball handling abilities. PG was the biggest weakness heading into the season and I think Bairstow will help fill that role though probably not at the start of the season. I’m thinking by conference play he has settled...

OOC Schedule Pieces

This is fantastic. I think we can win the St. Mary's game. The other 2 would be big upsets if we were to win them. Either way the LSU and Florida games are neutral court games against sure fire quad 1 teams. So long as we play well and don't get blown out of the water they will not hurt the resume....

Re: Smith extension and raise

I haven’t seem any say this but..... maybe Smith doesn’t want to sign an extension. Maybe he’s been offered by USU but has declined to sign it. Maybe ...

Re: Looking ahead

Really impressive the talent we will have available next year. I would love to see Grootfaam on the court. I didn’t realize his post game was so polished. I’m excited to it. I’m excited to see 1-5 on this list! Going to be a great year!

Re: Projecting Next Season's Depth Chart

We should be scary good next year. If Queta comes back, IMO, that’s the best USU team ever on paper, especially if Bairstow can be a primary ballhandler and we can get anything out of Groot or Stall. If Groot or Stall actually can play next year, we will be very good. We will have depth at both pos...

We could only play Nevada in the championship game. We could play NMSU and Houston along the way to the final four.
