Re: Ike Larsen

Vendetta or just pointing out a pattern of behavior? He has assaulted multiple teammates. This was mentioned previously months ago. Take from it what you will. Why the great interest in Ike ? Hell I do not know what the recruits of USU are doing while in High School. Is this a personal issue with y...

No big deal perhaps some ought ought to let little Ike go, it would appear some folks have a vendetta against him.

Re: Iowa State?

I've said this in other places, but the fact that Smith negotiated his buyout percentage down from 75% in his original contract to 25% in the current contract does not bode well for him staying in Logan long-term. My pessimistic guess is Queta declares for the draft and Smith leaves this offseason....

Re: Out Hustled and Out Coached!

When Stew built up his winning record, we weren't playing teams with the talent that SDSU, Boise or CSU have. Think more along the lines of Weber St. or Fullerton St. This team would be undefeated in a lesser conference. In the MWC we regularly play teams with potential NBA players. That was a rare...

Re: Out Hustled and Out Coached!

Tough loss(es), but our guys will bounce back. Losing Worster hurts. Boise is a really good team and it was in their home floor. I'm afraid there won't be anything to bounce back to. We are most certainly out of consideration for an at large bid. And if there is no conference tournament, there is n...

He seriously only has a base of 550? I thought his base would be closer to what the max is, like 850.
From what I know the last year of his old contract called for $750 . He made $550 plus $100,000 in his first year in Logan for a total of $650,000 Very poor written story.
