  1. It's still just a rumor, but created a pretty long discussion in the group.
  2. It is. It's a pic of him on instagram with the line "going pro" that was shared in a facebook college lax group.

  4. I just read Tahoke is leaving for the pros on facebook? Joke?
  5. My selfban hasnt started yet lol. There is no apathy. I care deeply for the program, and I dont want to give up. I just dont feel qualified to comment on if a coach should be fired. Typing stuff on social media is pretty much out there forever. While its anonymous, it's not hard to figure out who is who. I'll root for the team, but I'll leave my negativity to the conversations at the bar instead of a public forum.
  6. I'm planning on bowing out of the conversation in the football forum altogether. Going with the "if you cant say anything nice, dont say anything at all" bit. I've probably shared too much as it is. I wish the team luck for the rest of the season. I'll still go to the games I can make it to, but I won't plan my weekends around it. I normally try to give my tix away to people who have never attended a game during weeks I cant make it. My intention was always to help create new fans with my good seats to help improve attendance in the future. Not so sure that's a strategy I want to employ this year. Might end up scaring people away. Hopefully the team turns a corner.

    I was most impressed with the improvement and movement of Brent Hank. He just seemed so much more comfortable. Healy might be my pick for AEROY. DeSousa has some major ups. He had a few powerful dunks in the practice period. Brooks impressed me for a little guy. I didn't notice Miller much until the scrimmage period. He will end up a leader on the team. Campbell looked good defensively, and while he hit a few 3s and a few mid range jumpers, his shot looked the same. It seemed to be all in his release. The team is as advertised. Lots of talent, but still raw and Will have growing pains. I expect Brown to have them going strong by the second half of the conference schedule.
  8. If players read the board, this board probably hasnt helped him keep the team.
  9. Honestly, both answers point to the coaching staff. The first is a recruiting problem, the second is a strategy and management problem.
  10. In the last season and a half, UA has 6 losses decided by 1 score or less. Total of 24 points in these losses. To me, losing all these close games means 1 of 2 things: 1. The team has an incredible coaching staff, but no talent, and although they keep the games close they just can't get over the hump 2. The coaching staff sucks and can't figure out how to utilize the talent and end up losing all the close games. I'll let the peanut gallery decide which is the correct answer.

    Looks like the practice on Sunday will also be the purple and gold game, according to the email I just received...
  12. Moore and Maloney are big big guys. Wow.

    If I decide to drag myself to the game tomorrow. I'm torn. It's the real men wear pink game, and my wife is a survivor, so I am planning on going with the family, but the weather looks cold and the product on the field does nothing to warm the heart. I may just give my seats away (if I can find someone to take them).

    Nice. Some press and articles coming out finally. There is a chill in the air, the balls are bouncing, and open practice is on Sunday. It's hard not to smile.

    Definitely stings, I was looking forward to "do more". May not be the worst thing, especially if he can get a red shirt. Will open up some more PT at the guard slot which seems like a packed house already. (Based solely on reports of talent obviously, as we haven't seen anyone play yet)
