Hat's off to Will and his staff for filling in the missing pieces timely .... as "BD" stated in the stands a couple of weeks ago .... filling in the missing pieces is a big part of a coach's job ....  now Will Brown lets blend the talent into a winning team ... you have my support!  To Cremo and Nichols ... I hope you reach your short term dreams of a NCAA Tournament.

I just noticed the list of schools we have lost recruits to. Not a bad list. We are aiming high!

VCU, USF, Pitt, Western Mich, ...

So after watching a couple of Western Wyoming games online I'm a big fan of Nathan Fromm, looks like a steal and a half...

He seems to be a very athletic kid with multiple tools and a slippery drive. Im looking forward to seeing him work.

We gotta stop hyping these kids lol. Us addicted fans should not be getting this excited this time of year for a team with only 2 returning players that saw any game time at all (Clark and Campbell).

I gotta stop worrying if Rizzuto or deSousa will red shirt. Who is gonna get time with all the apparent talent being brought in.

At most Brown will go 9 deep, not sure if I have ever seen him regularly give more players than that minutes. I see 11 players right now that could step in and play, based on written words and youtube, with 2 scholarships to give.

I'm worried that we will all get overly excited, set expectations way too high for such a young team, then get dissapointed with a 4th place finish and an exit from the AE playoffs in the second round.

High expectations are already set for UA regardless of who is expected to play CB has us expecting to be good the question is will we be NCAA good.

 

I would expect next year's team to be opposite of this year's team. Next year's group could start slow and improve all year long.

Pretty sure you hyped up the five freshman like crazy for next season, although that was before Cremo and Nichols left.

There really shouldn't be any expectations for next season other than we never expect to be terrible regardless of roster change. Little competition for playing time could be refreshing, we had spots locked up the past couple of seasons and it didn't work out as well as everyone hoped. Going to be a ton of speed bumps early, no way to prevent it with so many new pieces in play. Just nice to be able to add talent so quickly when most programs would be in serious trouble in April losing the pieces we did in March.

I also admit to buying into the hype every year. Why not, the incoming guys look great and I have faith that Coach Brown will know what to do with them.

Last I saw on twitter he was visiting Miami I think, anytime someone lists schools for him they're almost all high majors.

I'm pretty sure that's our role in those whole thing, isn't it?. We're not players and we're not coaches. We watch youtube clips and look up the 3pt percentages of our recruits. Then next year we'll drive through snowstorms to away games. We'll live and die with each foul call and then won't be able to talk the next day from screaming. We're fanatics, that's just what we do.
