Re: Recruiting

While I love the baseball talk ....

Getting back to recruiting - are we looking for a new center? Someone that can snap the ball consistently accurate to the quarterback when he is in the shotgun? Bad snaps from the center are drive killers.

Re: Miller's shot

I thought I heard yesterday on the radio that USU’s 3 pt % is 349th out of 350. Too lazy to verify, but sounds about right. #246. Not good. Maybe the 349 is since conference play - I would believe that. Interestingly - Auburn (which has lost just 2 games all year) is shooting a lower percentage fro...

Re: Best play of the night.....

For me it was the play after a made AFA basket. Bean sprinted down the court and got behind the defense. A quick inbound pass, a dribble and a pass to an open Bean for a fast break layup right after a made basket. We never do that and it caught them off guard. I don't know why we don't push the ball...

Re: How do you give up 40 points in 8:13?

The thing that baffles me - beyond the complete offensive ineptitude:

How do you allow a freshman that had scored a total of 18 points for the year coming in to the game, score 19 points in 3:37 to close the game out? Seriously?

The pre-season basketball hype is similar to Heisman candidate hype at USU -- it's a curse. It was the kiss of death for the Aggies basketball team to garner such talk before the season started.
