What's up, everybody? Hope everybody's enjoying a snowy Tuesday.
Yep, tough for all of us Bryan. Reminds me of many consecutive weeks at the end of the last football season. The good news, though, is that Air Force is not very good.
And I think it goes without saying that you don't want a week to feel like any at the end of last football season.
Talked to a few guys yesterday, and they're trying to stick together. The question is whether all this adversity will pull them together or tear them apart. Tonight will be a good indicator. They're so thin inside now, but I don't think that will hurt them too much tonight.
Air Force plays small, and one of their big guys prefers to step out and shoot threes. Wyoming can play small, which is a good thing.
Yes and no. Sellers may play some tonight, but we might not see Haldorson. Like I said, Wyoming can still play small. Sellers will play more against Boise, though. And the real test, as far as match ups, will be USU next week.
It isn't easy to sit for most of a season, then be asked to help carry a team. If you're a UW big man right now, you can't worry about scoring. If Cooke, Sellers and Haldorson can simply play defense and rebound, that'll be huge.
And we all saw that they couldn't rebound against CSU.
Nope. Like I wrote a few days ago, this team will be more hardened and experienced for next season. Not a pleasant thing to hear, but it's true.
Yep. Wheels definitely fell off. Once De Ciman hit back-to-back threes, it was pretty much over. The surprising thing there is that UW never usually gives up fast break points. Can't do that.
This is true. Without Nance, I think more of the guards were trying to crash the glass and attack the basket. This made it easier to leak out on them on the break. They can't allow that tonight.
Not as of yet. That's thinking a little ahead of the game. I know there's been talk about freshmen being homesick, but that tends to happen when you're not playing. We'll see if that changes with Washington down the stretch here.
Starts March 24, spring game is April 19. Not great news so far about access. I think I'll only be able to see parts of certain practices, so practices will probably be closed to public. Scrimmages will probably be open though.
Yep, he missed a couple games earlier this season w/ discipline issues, but he'll play tonight. Too bad for UW. He averages 16.4 PPG, shoots 41% from behind the arc. Dangerous.
Honestly: that's a serious possibility. Air force tonight is huge, and they can definitely win. After that, it's tough. Boise plays small also, but they're high scoring and I don't know that UW can keep up. And USU is big, and a tough match up.
I don't think we should assume UW can't beat CSU at home, though. CSU isn't that good, and it was tied at halftime on the road. It'll be a good home atmosphere at the end of the season. I think Wyoming has a good shot of taking that one.
In conclusion, though: I can't pick UW against Boise or Utah State. Cowboys need this one tonight badly.
Hasn't been announced yet, but I highly, highly doubt it. Nance Sr. has had three knee surgeries, and I doubt he'll want his son to have the surgery at Ivinson.
I'm hearing the surgery will be pretty soon, though. I'll have a story after they do it.
Agree. I think Herron was slightly disappointing and Huff was slightly overachieving. I'm excited to see how they run the 40 back to back at Wyoming's pro day.
I thought about going to the radio show but didn't end up going. I haven't heard where Nance will have the surgery, so it's possible. I guess I'd just be surprised.
That sounds like it could be the case. From what I heard, the swelling has gone down in his knee to the degree that he can have it.
