Re: 2020 Hoops Signings

22, do we have an expected idea of who/quantity of individuals that will be redshirting? Perhaps a silly question, but when is that decided? After practice and exhibition games, right before the season starts? Not a silly question at all. Once all the players get here and the coaching staff gets a ...

I re-watched the LSU game last night

Basketball, not football. A few observations after many months and in a time of extreme sports boredom: 1. Alfonso Anderson was huge in that game. He hit some big threes and had three dunks coming from back cuts along the baseline. One play in particular was a thing of beauty. Merrill dribble drives...

Re: New Coach to be Announced

Amidst all the talk about athletic departments struggling financially, the concern about what the football season will look like, some universities cutting sports or salaries to save money...we are hiring new coaches!

Good for Jordan. Signed a guaranteed $12M deal (including $6M in signing bonus) for a 4-year contract today. They must really like him. As a Bears fan, I don't want him to have too much success, but I hope he has a long, healthy career in the NFL.

Man, Darwin Thompson is such a special player. His ability to keep his balance and his feet moving when he gets hit is incredible.

The most important game is always the next game. Don't you listen to coach-speak? You have to win one game before you win two games. CSU doesn't mean any more or less than any other game.
