Re: 2019-2020 Mens Basketball

I'll be honest, I gave up 10 minutes into the game. We couldn't hit any layups so we resorted to just bombing 3's and I really had other things I needed to get done than watch that. When I saw the final score, I kind of wished I would have stuck with it.

Re: Coach Collins: 28-71 (.283 Win %) 19–50 Conference (.275 Win %)

Those numbers really are staggering. What's amazing is that he will be the 4th coach in UNC history to have coached 100 games. The other coaches are: John Hancock - W77-L78-T5 (160 games total) Bob Blasi - W107-L71-T3 (181 games total) Joe Glenn - W99- L34 (133 games total) It's amazing how long of ...

Re: We're #243 out of 255 schools

More name calling... speaks to the class of the commentators on the board and the lack of a moderator who take the position seriously. Of course, dropping down to DII has been discussed. I realized that like beaten animals, the commentators on this board who are supporting one of the worst DI progr...

Re: MSU - UNC Watch Party in Vegas

You may not get Bears fans to show up to their home stadium to watch them play (even if you bought them a beer) but the offer is incredibly kind.

Re: 2019-2020 Mens Basketball

Both the men and the women start the regular season tonight. Not sure I can get the Longhorn Network to watch the men play at Texas but I should be able to watch some of the women's game against San Francisco.

GO BEARS!!!!

Re: We're #243 out of 255 schools

Nice. Only 1 team with 1 win below us and the rest are all zero win teams. If this is what passes as fine with the university, then I just assume drop the program. We know they can do better, because they have done better. We need to expect/demand more.

Re: I'm not "Viking" our chances against Portland State for homecoming.

I really wish I would have done a better job of preserving stuff from when I was in college.
I had a "Vuck the Vikings" shirt from when we played Augustana college on homecoming in the early 90's. Now we have a different set of Vikings coming to town and I don't think it's going to be pretty for UNC.

Re: I don't think we have ever beaten Eastern Washington since moving up!? That should be ill-"Eagle"!

That would be cool. I did a drive/walk by of their campus and stadium when I was in nearby Spokane for a meeting a few summers ago. I have to say, that part of Washington is beautiful but that red turf, reflecting the summer sun back at you, should be illegal. It was horrible, not sure how anyone ca...

Living in the D.C. area, I half wondered if Jay Gruden or Collins would get fired first. I should have known it would be Gruden.

Re: Will Nottingham get "Vandal" ized this weekend? I da know?

Well I'll be darned. Didn't know the game was on TV until early in the 2nd half (for some reason, 11 sports looked like they were filming with a VHS recorder). Anyway, it was great to see another team besides us completely bottle a game like that and I was really happy for the players. I was also su...

2019-2020 Mens Basketball

They have a pretty cool non-conference schedule. Would love to see them get a win against one of the big teams. I wish the WV game wasn't on a Monday. At 5 hours away from my Maryland home, I might be able to make it if it were on a Saturday. Also, the women play CSU, Stanford and UCLA so I look for...

Re: Will Nottingham get "Vandal" ized this weekend? I da know?

Can't really argue with anything in there. Hopefully our defense can keep us in the game long enough for the offense to figure it out. If I thought it would get Collins fired, I may root for another butt whoppin' but that doesn't seem to matter.

Surely we are in the same ballpark as other Big Sky teams and could get a better coach to come to Greeley for the same money.

Meanwhile, Mines is still racking up points without Fulton this season. I wonder if there is a connect?
Maybe that speaks to our players on offense just not being good enough to get the job done at the FCS level.

Re: Coach Collins: 26-66 (.283 Win %) 17–47 Conference (.265 Win %)

Yeah, but can we afford to buy him out of his contract and pay for a new coach? I imagine all it would take is 1 extra FBS road game (lets get that Florida game back on the schedule for next year and that can fund the new coach).

Re: Division II

Yeah, cool it on the personal attacks. Blofeld's argument is sound without it.

We have dozens of successful programs and 1 lousy one. While not as successful as Duke in basketball, that would be like telling Duke they need to move to FCS since their football program always sucks at the D1 ACC level.

Re: Division II

Yeah, DII would be a silly move. Hell, this season alone, our volleyball team has beaten Oregon State (Pac 12), Rutgers (Big 10) and New Mexico (Mountain West). They certainly belong in DI.

Honestly, I would rather scrap the football program and spend more resources on the other sports than go DII.

Re: South Dakota Coyotes

Looks like SD gives up a lot of points but can also score. Could be a fun game to watch and one where both teams really need a win.
