    The skills, hopefully without the attitude... (though I wonder if a coach like Weir could have reigned in Elijah to draw out his full potential?

    I'm not sure Elijah would have bought in enough for that to happen, tbh. Talented player who could fit well with the style of play but, I don't see him flourishing under Weir.

    Brown played pretty decently under Altman, and that was under fairly tough circumstances (joining a team for one final year and coming off the bench). I don't think we can underestimate the effect that a poor head coach and a program in chaos can have on a player. Brown's second season at UNM was surely a result of how he was coached the previous season, and what was going on at the time. If we could take an exact clone of Brown who had just played a year at Butler, and Weir was our head coach, I'd take him in a heartbeat.

    An Elijah Brown comparison is not a bad thing.

    Much more physical player than Brown. More like D. Gary and Chatfield.

    Elijah could be surprisingly physical for the finesse look he liked, but Dairese had the physical style that it appears that Zane appeared to have in the video.

    I was not talking about his coach or even his performance while here. Purely and simply, i don’t think he would have bought in particular with regards to playing time.

    All I have to say is there has been many times smaller schools have come to the PIT and if even they they lost, they had a player who lit it up. I would always ask myself, why couldn't my favorite college team pull one of these under the radar guys who were looked over by many. Hard to get some of these guys that are looked over by bigger schools back east as UNM may not be able to get to those areas in the east.

    Good to see the Lobos got one of these guys that seems to have great potential and also beat out some top schools who have better history than UNM. Great job coach.

    Welcome Zane. Look forward to you bring some pain to out rivals and conference foes.
