Re: Roster is now filled out

Unless someone else were to unexpectedly choose to leave, this is the final addition to the 2020-21 team. 12 scholarship dudes and 3 walk-ons. I haven't been paying a lot of attention to BB recruiting lately. Does 12=13 now? Are we just saving the extra scholarship to give more flexibility in the f...

Re: Why not postpone vs cancel

They could eliminate some of the logistical nightmares by holding the event at campus sites in May, but I doubt they'll brin...

Well, it’s not often that you end your year with a win.
Who is going to get awarded the national champions?
They have to award it to Kansas who is ranked #1.
Everybody knows it should go to SDSU. They were ranked #1 in the NET rankings more times this year than anybody in history.

The entire premise of this post undermines everything SDSU has ever posted on the board.
