Re: Spring Football Game Thoughts?

Went to the game... had a great day. I'm no scout but the offenses seemed lively.

Re: Marcus Williams in transfer portal

Some quotes from SI On the heels of the NCAA’s decision to allow college athletes to freely transfer and play immediately, Greg Kampe has a message for basketball coaches everywhere: Change the way you recruit or see your career go up in flames. “If you are building for the future,” the longtime Oak...

Re: Marcus Williams in transfer portal

Looks like NCAA free agency is back again next year. Need to go back to sitting out for a year. https://theathletic.com/news/ncaa-expected-to-approve-one-time-transfer-rule-sources/z4VeShqu36oD It is here to stay. You can't put that cat back in the bag. Personally, I agree with it although it is ba...

Re: Marcus Williams in transfer portal

It's going to be really hard to generate year to year excitement for perennial non sweet-sixteen level programs now. Every year the snow-globe will get shaken up, the players that are over-performing for historically marginal schools will fly away and land elsewhere. My gut reaction was shock and bl...

Re: Call your shot...

Finally...I don't see the metaphorical fence I'm being accused of straddling. What is the intellectual inconsistency in holding simultaneously, the belief that Vigen was not a good OC and that the offensive struggles were bigger than just him? :lol: The thread is "call your shot". I can p...

Re: Call your shot...

I stand corrected. 307 and Oredigger have effectively straddled the fence and laid claim to any position. :lol: My take is that we'll see a noticeable improvement on offense; so much so that it will be obvious that Vigen was holding it back. That's what I believe will happen. I don't think this is ...

Re: Call your shot...

I think Lax officially qualifies as someone who can call us dumbasses if the offense continues to sputter. Fair assessment, imo. Called his shot. Oredigger has straddled the fence enough it's hard to tell, so I'm sure he'll say he qualified and told us how the offense was Bohl's fault. Of course, i...

Re: Who are we? Where are we heading?

I think we are getting pretty far into hair-splitting territory here (at least I am). I agree with Ragtime that quality of opponent is the ultimate predictor of win/loss (and have said as much). The discussion around how to decide the difference between a tougher vs easier schedule has nothing to do...

Re: Who are we? Where are we heading?

Umm, questioning the difference between those 2 years is what the original question about. I used 1 metric (sos) but there tons that can be used. The SOS debate is irrelevant. Use any metric you want but the home vs away is far weaker than sos. I agree that you questioning how those two years were ...

Re: Who are we? Where are we heading?

If we had more good teams at home in 18... I'll call that easier... You may be unconvinced... That is fine, I'm not impressed by SOS. My criticism is of using SOS to justify... Well anything really. I'm not comparing Wyoming schedules to other teams schedule... (And if I was I would certainly not u...

Re: Call your shot...

The Vigen fanboy is not mythical. One year ago half of this board thought 3 things: 1. Our defense was only good because of our terrible offense. 2. Any improvement or change whatsoever to our offense would directly cause a decrease in our defensive performance. 3. Any offensive problems we had wer...

Re: Who are we? Where are we heading?

I'm starting to see a pattern where you argue against points literally nobody made....you are the one putting forth this "every other year" nonsense. Umm, we rotate bsu, usu, and af every other year, so based on this I'd say you either argue that our schedule is much tougher every other y...

Re: Call your shot...

No, my prediction is that we'll see such a drastic improvement on offense (assuming the QBs can get their arms under moderate control), that it will leave no question Vigen was the problem. The players are largely the same. The conference is largely same. The only major difference is Vigen is gone....

Re: Who are we? Where are we heading?

The point I'm making in terms of having a "tough" schedule is that a "tough" schedule will not be reflected by a higher SOS....It matters way more who you get at home vs on the road. For that reason, I, and fans like expat_poke evidently, use the word "tough' to describe a ...

Re: Call your shot...

I guarantee that if the offense struggles next year, there would be posts about everyone bitching about playcalling and Vigen but that wasn't the problem. I'll definitely refer back to this thread :cool: Playcalling complaints happen every year...it is the default gripe of the low-information fan. ...

Well, other than Oredigger, who may or may not have said losing Vigen will or will not have a positive or negative impact :?, it seems there is nobody that can come back next season and say anything remotely similar to: "I didn't think Vigen was the main problem", "I knew Vigen wasn'...

Re: Who are we? Where are we heading?

Once again, you are WAAAAY overcomplicating this. You certainly can't use SOS to split hairs, but to call a mid 80 SOS as a tough schedule is asinine especially when comparing to another mid 80s SOS. The FACT is that the MWC is a pretty weak conference in the FBS landscape and as a consequence WYO'...
