Let us be real. Where would we be without Jim Laub?

It’s a lot easier to be an AD with financial support.
He is our Warren Buffett.

Re: Your Best and Worst USU ADs

I won't pick a worst AD, but my choice for best, right now, is Buzz Williams. Buzz did everything he could to get us into the old WAC. When the WAC said we were kept out because of inadequate facilities, he built new facilities. New Romney Stadium and the Spectrum were built during his tenure. We co...

Re: NCAA Rules Changes

It will help Queta inside, he needs to develop some low post moves and become a consistent scorer. That will help him more as a prospect right now than becoming a stretch player like some have mentioned in here. It will make it even more critical to have a rim protector. Offensively, we know Merril...

Personally I would prefer to not have the "nicest" locker room. Obviously I DO want a locker room that is good enough. But I still want there to be a bit of grunge. Something to keep players hungry. I want it to be something that will get them in the mood to go out and hit. Not to stay in and play ...
