Up to ten. Probably doesn't affect us realistically either way so I'll cheer for Boise to lose and help us secure that 3 seed.

I’m telling you our game Saturday should scare the heck out of us.

But in this case go Fresno!

Although don’t we want Boise to stay relatively high in the NET rankings so our losses don’t look as bad? Not that it would drop them a whole lot but still...

Well, we really don’t want Fresno to all of the sudden gain tons of confidence right before we play them. I don’t want a blow out or a victory for Fresno. I want BSU to win by ~10pts. Just a normal loss. Nothing to get excited over.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if BSU loses to Fresno all we need is a split this week to stay at #3??

Edit: That would hinge on SDSU to win against UNLV, so we would get the CSU matchup.

Looks like a dislocated shoulder

I don't think he landed on it. Looks like it was knocked out of socket when he reached in

It does us no good to have Boise lose — especially at home. That would only serve to have our losses to them look that much worse.

The committee will see we lost to Boise twice. Losing to Boise twice who beat Fresno by 1 or losing to Boise twice who lost by 2 to Fresno won't make a difference. I'd rather have security in the 3 seed because we probably need to win the tournament to get in anyway. And if we don't the Boise Fresno game isn't going to be the deciding factor. Also I don't like Boise.

The only thing we care about at this point is staying on the opposite side of the tournament than SDSU.


This post is likely straight up poor sarcasm and cannot be taken seriously.

Fresno wins.

Boise blows an 8 point lead with about 2.5 minutes to play.

Alston doesn't touch the ball in the final possession with 17 seconds.

I like watching Boise lose

What a horrible last possession! Is that the best Leon and Timmy could come up with?

Bad loss by Boise. Saturday will be tough at Fresno. Poor Leon, he had such high hopes.

Leon's recruiting pitch must go something like "Come and be a Bronco where everyone gets to play hero ball!"

Exactly. IT will be two Q1 road losses regardless which wont hurt us. Having them drop a game and assure us of finishing higher in conference and giving them a bad home loss will help our NCAA tournament chances. Same if CSU drops game to Nevada

Losing to them aside, it’s pretty hilarious that this was supposed to be their “best team ever” and they will play in the 4/5 game as they do seemingly every year lol

I actually thinks this helps us. The conference was not going to get 4 teams in but has a chance for 3. There net will be right around ours and maybe a little lower. Plus the losses to them will still be quad 1 losses. The aggies still have a lot of business to handle but are knocking in the door of a bid.

Judging from her tweets, everything. As related to USU she has attacked USU and Hartwell in idiotic ways.

Boise’s beat writer predictably blaming it on the MW because they... had to play a make-up game just like the rest of the league?

Lame excuse. If you can't beat a bad Fresno State team at home you don't belong in the tournament.

Honestly it is a lame excuse. But let’s say we get beat and csu gets beat this week we could turn into a 1 bid league pretty quick. Financial impact and exposure impact could be a big deal if that carries itself out.

That is the price of competition. We can't criticize Wyoming for refusing to play us and then be worried about playing them a few weeks later since a loss will hurt us. If we can't beat Wyoming and Fresno State this week, we don't belong in the tournament.

Not what I’m arguing, and I think you make a great point. Just stating that it is a risk of losing bids which is not good for the conference. Pairing up the top 4 of the league the last week of the season provides no upside and only risk of losing bids.

It's funny because of how much the league and the TV stations were slobbering over Boise and Alston and all the P5 transfers they had.

It goes to show people that while stars next to a name are important because certain things cant be taught, on the flip side coaching and chemistry are of equal importance. When you can mesh high star players with great chemistry/coaching it is wonderful, but stars alone cant get it done without the other 2.

One of the best attributes of Craig’s teams is it seems they improve during the year. Best is always at or near the end of the season.

I think Queta wins MW player of the year.

Alston has been poor the last several weeks and as he goes BSU goes.

Love it that Rice brought his own crappy kid onto the team. What a dumpster fire.
Rice is good for getting BSU to a 4/5/6 seed every year and nothing more.
