We better spank MT State or I will be discouraged
Montana State will have more insight into our team. If Vigen can’t find a way to keep it semi-close (3 TDs) then he really isn’t much of a coach.

Re: Way too early W/L Football Prediction Thread

7-5. Losses to AF, Northern Illinois, Utah State, SJ, and Boise. I wish I had the optimism some of you guys show year in and year out on these things. Seems like every year a significant portion of our fans think we're gonna win 10 games. I just don't get that. I’ve never predicted 10 wins that I c...

Re: Way too early W/L Football Prediction Thread

Deepest team since I started following the Pokes in the mid 90s. I honestly think this team can win 10 regular season games and that’s where I have them.

Re: Women's Hoops...

The women’s team made a hell of a run in the MWC tourney but let’s take a step back. During the regular season, the team had some head scratching losses. I’m not going to look at one postseason run and conclude that Gerald is a better coach and a better fit for the program than Legerski. Let’s be ho...

Walk-on RB Brenton to Transfer

Brenton is transferring to D2 Northern State. He has been a big contributor the past few years with injuries at RB. With the group coming back healthy and absent a scholarship, can’t blame him at all. Best of luck at Northern State to him!

Re: Nate Weinman

I’ll never fault an athlete that makes the decision to step away and focus on academics. Football will not pay the bills for the vast majority of players. I faced a similar decision many years ago (although I was athletically not even in the stratosphere of a D1 scholarship player). I chose academic...

Re: 2022 QB Commit - Caden Becker

Did northern Illinois get a new coaching staff? Or did Cade just decide to switch commitments just because Northern Illinois has basically the same staff that it has had since January 2019 when they hired Hammock as HC. I am a bit skeptical when a HS junior commits to a program so early and then sw...

Re: Andrews and Jensen to Return

Good news. I didn't know wrestlers got an extra year. Didn't they get an extra year last year too? No. Last year counted because only the NCAAs were cancelled. It's a bummer Montorie moved on with his life. We could have had him this year and next year! Hold on. Won't next year be the third year in...

Andrews and Jensen to Return

All of Wyoming's seniors (Brian Andrews and Jaron Jensen) have announced their intentions to return next year. Will be a deep team next year assuming no transfers out. Would love to see Wyoming land someone like Kyle Parco from Fresno for the lower weights too.

Re: Spring Football Game Thoughts?

Anyone going? It'll be interesting to see who claims the 3rd string QB spot by fall. I certainly hope the QB injuries are not a problem, but lately, the 3rd string QB has been needed as backup. I guess not a trivial position battle as insurance in case something happens again this year. I'm also no...

Re: Marcus Williams in transfer portal

This is the new reality for college athletics. Good players will be recruited to go to the 'top schools.' As bladerunner indicates, once college athletes are able to secure their own marketing deals soon, the trend will only increase. It sucks for Wyoming but it is a reality that we have to deal wit...
