Boise Trying to Move Games to Nampa

https://twitter.com/BJRains/status/1359261236987236354 Nampa being in a different county than Boise would apparently allow a limited number of fans to attend. This would only affect our first game against Boise since the Idaho High School State Girls Basketball Tournament is already scheduled at the...

Re: What even was the point

What was the point of meeting with the team other than to just claim they got input as a warm fuzzy for the process? The claim is that they were wanting input from the players but that makes no sense so late in the process. From what I can tell there wasn't really any legitimate point to the meetin...

Re: Recruiting Formula

Why not USU? We've dropped off recently, but for a few years there, we were neck-and-neck with BYU for the 2nd most desirable in-state program. With UTAH turning their eyes elsewhere, that leaves lots of pretty good Utah kids. All I'm saying is that we shouldn't just concede that we're going to los...
