Re: Recruiting

It may be overblown but if it is a glaring weakness, opposing teams can use it to force more turnovers and even just a few more per game can lead to a few more losses or a higher likelihood of choking under intense pressure. I hate to remind myself but I painfully watched us meltdown in Boise last y...

Re: Recruiting

It's looking to me like another year of constant heart attacks every time an athletic team starts heavily pressuring us and playing full court defense. While this is true, it has also been true for at least the last 20 years with the exception of Brockeith Pane's tenure. The Aggies have gone 461-19...

Re: Depth chart predictions

My use of the term PG is synonymous with primary ball handler/distributor. “PG’s typically have strong situational awareness, speed, quickness, and ball handling skills. Shorter players tend to be better dribblers since they are closer to the floor, and thus have better control of the ball while dri...

Re: Looking at 247 sports

Interesting but as Craig Smith notes, how many stars was Sam Merrill rated? There are several Stew Morrill recruits that I would take over anyone on that list. I hope the new guys turn out really well.
