    That roster is full of huge dudes and they want to really run. We'll see what becomes of that.
    If they can work cohesively, sure, it could work out. Not that SIU is anywhere in the same ballpark as MSU, but I feel like MSU has had the same type of player (fast, athletic, tall) and done an underwhelming job over the years. Maybe their new coach can continue to make SIU from year 1, that'd be great for the league.

    He has coached at the AAU level, so not TOTALLY without experience. He mentioned it this morning on the DP Show, and to be fair, he did point out that coaching college is more like coaching AAU than it ever has been, which...he's not wrong

    Little different, but Rick Hartzell managed to be a high level referee for several years while also being an AD. You could argue he could have been even better at either job if he had quit the other, but that was just how he was wired and it made him who he was. You could probably say the same about Doug.

    His brother is a well thought of assistant. He has to be part of the deal. The brother can do the actual coaching and Doug can do the PR and recruiting.

    Not sure it works and I don't think I would have done it with the program in a good spot but it's a whole new world out there.

    I’ve seen news stories linking Gottlieb to a few coaching openings over the past couple of years, or at least him having interest. He played on some good Oklahoma State teams back in the day and then became a college BB analyst. I don’t think he ever played in the NBA.

    While it seems weird to let him keep his radio job, the AD and Gootlieb may be looking at it as a great source of free publicity for both the basketball team and school at large. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Cole Henry is eligible to enter the portal again. He's not coming back but it will be interesting to see if Wicks wants him in Laramie.

    Perfect name for the the Cowboys.

    Imagine Wyoming's marketing department is a happy office today.

    I was incredibly curious what domino's would fall in that situation. This doesn't shock me.

    My calculations say if RJ starts in the 3rd, 8th, 25th and 32nd game, and plays 25:45, 32:34,18:43, and 39:59 respectively, we could possibly be one of the best teams in the Country.

    And that's just slight hyperbole (I really don't know how old he actually is), but he really did write something to that effect. It's to this day one of the most jaw-dropping things I've ever read online.
    Who comes off as the insensitive, shot throwing, rules violating curmudgeon now? Your post did nothing to advance the subject except flame a lifelong Panther that has been on here since day 1

    If Taylor starts at pg then this will be the worst team ben has had and that’s saying something because they haven’t been good in years
