    Things are coming together. Combs would be a great get this late. I think we need a little more muscle inside though. Our two centers are so foul prone I see us getting thin against bigger more physical teams. Hopefully Chandler stays on board and is a quick study.

    Best of luck to Sam regardless, I am happy to see him stay around. He's a good man and adds a lot on the court.
    Out of my Mind for the Lobos!!!

    regarding Combs - it may have been an iterative process with Coach, Sam & Combs. Both Sam & Combs project to be Sr. small/active 4s - I wouldn't be surprised if it were one or the other but I certainly don't know.

    I certainly hope so. I like his athleticism, and ability to run the floor. Hope he can find a way to stay on the court without fouling out. Between Aget and himself, it seemed like they were always on the bench early in first halves.

    It's funny reading this thread when majority of people wanted Sam to play less minutes or to be benched completely all year long.

    I think because some of us see his potential to see his athleticism to the fullest under Weir's system vis a vis Neals.

    That being said I am very happy that he is coming back. I expect Weir to find a way to correctly utilize Sam's talent and athleticism.

    Not really that funny when you realize the roster is pretty depleted. And Logwood may do better under a new coach playing a different style. Sam has periodically shown flashes of being very good. He did quite well in some games late in the season when the Lobos were minus Tim Williams. He is experienced and should help the Lobos next year.

    Sam Logwood tells me he is returning to New Mexico next season. Huge news for the Lobos. Was considering a transfer.

    #20 is back! Special Senior Year I predict.

    This past season I wasn't a fan of Logwood's or as some have called him "LONGwood" but I do realize that he may have been confused under Neal's erratic undisciplined coaching style. I'm intrigued to see what he may be under Weir's up tempo defense first oriented style because even this past season there were flashes of great potential.

    A new coaching style doesn't mean he's not gonna dribble the ball off his own foot every third times he gets a touch. I will agree he played well against a bigger slower player like Duncan, and he does take up one of the open scholly's.

    Good for Sam and a smart decision. I think he could really excel as an undersized stretch 4 in Weir's system. Isolate him against slower, less athletic, MWC bigs and he could be a weapon imo. Just have to get rid of that initial hesitation.

    Welcome back, Sam. You made a good choice. Paul Weir is a real coach. You have probably forgotten what it's like to have one of those.

    Sam is physically one of my favorite all time Lobos. It's a shame he has not been able to put the pieces together yet. How much of that is on the last coach, and how much of that is on him, we will find out this season. One thing is for sure. Paul Weir now has one of the best athletes you will see anywhere in college basketball.

    Will Sammy Two Times fulfill his potential under the new regime, and become a consistent force and provide calming leadership on both ends of the floor? Or will it be another meh season sprinkled with feats of athletic brilliance? Only time will tell.

    I think Sam's strengths involve driving to the basket where his athleticism comes into play (not spot up shooting) and playing tenacious defense night in and night out. I think he will flourish under Coach Weir.

    Sam,
    Thanks for choosing to remain a Lobo! I'm looking forward to seeing some major development under the new HC. I know you have the talent!

    I believe Neal thought the same thing, but it didn't work out so well. He's a good outside shooter. He needs to be freed up to shoot. it will also improve his drives as people backed off of him knowing he was going inside.
