Re: These are college kids, so take it easy.

I heard they are going to build a homeless shelter ,over by the Spectrum, to house all of the bums that are currently on the football and basketball teams. Where did these losers come from? I remember the good old days when the Aggys had something to smile about. Who is this guy? He can't properly ...

...to definitely needing to win the MWCT. A disappointing turn of events. Thing is: this sort of game is what I love about sports.

Re: SDSU as a 1 seed

Wichita was still in the Missouri Valley in 2014, and it looks like they were the only MVC team in the 2014 tournament.

VCU was still in the Colonial in 2004 when St. Joe was the #1 from the A10.

However, a 20 game conference schedule won't make it any easier to get good non-conference home games in Logan. Y...

We actually play Boise twice, we only play New Mexico and Nevada once each which makes zero sense considering we're the conference favorites and those would be good games for our resume.

Re: NCAA should change to 6 fouls

Why stop at six? Any argument that can be made for changing from five to six could be made for changing from five to ten. If we're going to change the game, let's change it.
