tell me how vgk aren't playing like shit again

p.s. help my grapes are so sour!


Dang Randy Bennett turned down an offer from UNLV. I want to believe it's because most coaches are gonna wait where they're at until a P5 job comes knocking but the truth is UNLV is a huge mess

edit: Zimmerman is signing with an agent and is draft bound. Good luck dude.

Randy Bennett turning down UNLV is unsurprising. Why would he leave St. Mary's for anything less than a prestigious job?

Still, I would like to see UNLV get a good coach. With Boise and Fresno looking to have a down year, it's going to be up to UNLV to pick up the slack.

I'd say UNM as well, but I have no faith in my team right now.

UNLV isn't going to hire a good coach because nothing works at UNLV. Athletics should be ended. Burn all the banners, wipe the school from every record book.

Don't hold your breath, unless you have a way to get UNLV and UNM better coaches and make Marvelle Harris magically becomes a junior again.

Edit: gently caress it is going to be Reno.

Is calling them Reno supposed to be an insult? Like people don't actually get confused if you refer to Nevada and think you're talking about UNLV, right? Serious question

Make of that what you will

That's cool, it's interesting to hear about little things like that, that you wouldn't otherwise know about. Cyclone fans call Iowa fans "Hoks" as an insult for some reason and I'm sure Iowa fans have their own dumb things I've mentally blocked out.

Are you sure that's an insult and not just that awful upper Midwest accent (IE the Fargo accent)

Sorry, I phrased that poorly, they just spell it like that on message boards, I gather it is pronounced the same. It's always confused me so if any Cyclone fans know why it's done, do tell.

Central iowegians may not, but you've obviously never been to the vast wilds of western Iowa. I hear it more from those with Iowa plates on their car than those from SD. Lyon County is a...special place.

\/\/ doesn't stop farmer Jim who lives by Gitchee from being a cyclones fan. And he definitely pronounces Hawk and Hok the same way. I've only ever spent time in Quad Cities, and that's pretty much Illinois, so I don't know how the rest of the state talks.

Yeah but that's extreme NW iowa. It's 5 miles from Sioux Falls, where I have relatives who definitely have a Dakotas/Minn twang. 100 miles north of Des Moines and Omaha isn't very far, but there's a drastic change in accent. I grew up around Council Bluffs, and going up to visit the relatives in SD for the holidays was always sort of a linguistic and cultural shake up.

Don't remind this retard that college sports are a scam, it hurts his stunted brain.

Okay the "so and so going to the NBA" stories where that person does not hire an agent are freaking everywhere. I feel like the fans need to adjust. These stories are simply not worth even mentioning unless they hire an agent. "Testing the waters" is now not a thing even worth discussing. It's simply part of the post-season process now for anyone with a snowball's chance in hell of making the D-league.

Ricky Doyle is transferring from Michigan, also Spike Albrecht will grad transfer. Neither of these moves is a surprise as: they had no scholarship for Albrecht having not anticipated him missing this entire season due to injury and they were oversigned by 1 thinking Zak Irvin would go pro (lol that's loving funny after this past season)

Doyle was good as a freshman and then horrendous last year, he was likely going to be the 3rd or 4th string big man if he stuck around. I could see him doing some work at a small school where he's bigger and stronger than most people. The dude works hard, you just can't do a lot as a 6'9 guy without any real technique to your game in the Big 10.

It's awesome that the CBI does Best of 3.

It would be cool as hell if Valpo can win the NIT; they've won their games so far by pretty big margins.

Come to Indiana, Ricky. Tom Crean can use the same voodoo he used on Bielfeldt to make you into a competent player.

Twitter says Albrecht wasn't released to go anywhere else in the Big Ten. He's from Indiana originally.
