Has anyone managed to submit a question online? I cant seem to satisfy the recaptcha antispam, even using the audible version.
Caps matter, and you have to have a space between words. I literally tried about twenty times, as well as several more using the audible version. maybe it's too early?
Caps matter. But they need to figure out something that's easier to decipher. Or else they are trying to screen out people writing in questions after having a beer or a glass of wine ...
Can someone who is listening give a recap? I sent in 3 questions, but I can't listen because it's kiddo bedtime in the Forman household ... Thanks.
I submitted a questions a couple of weeks ago through golobos.com and they read it just a few minutes later. It may have been before this really caught on and yes, the anti-spam thing is case sensitive.
Great call-in by brooklyn.
These recaps are ! Keep up the work!
Remember: pillage first, THEN burn!
WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT #wwwyki
This is thrilling thanks for the up
Said he went back & watched one of Coach's first interviews after he took the job & how Coach talked about making it a successful "program". At that time, the caller (sorry i can't remember his name, but he calls quite a bit & i think he's a fellow Lair member) didn't fully realize what Coach meant about said "program". The important things in his mind were to win in Vegas & beat BYU each year.
Now, 5 yrs in, he fully realizes & appreciates what Coach meant about making it a complete, successful “program” on & off the court. He rattled off a # of Coach's accomplishments outside of the wins & losses; highest team GPA in history, players all graduating, players still very much a part of the program (Dairese) & keeping in touch with the Lobo family (Faris, Giddens, Hobson etc.). Great points.
Coach responded with the story of his 1st week on the job & suspending JR for the summer. Talked about Hobson tweeting that he was glad he was going to play in the D league. Said he & his assistants called DHob & "hammered" him about making those types of decisions & mistakes. Coach wants all of his players to be successful in every facet of their lives even after their time at UNM & clearly he’s doing that. He's not just their coach for 4 yrs & then done. He's proud of building these men into succesful citizens throughout life.
Yes, I'm aware of Leerfield and all that,,,,,,
Any further summary of what was asked/said?
No Hughie Saturday. Dommo has great attitude but needs to work on shot. Thanked AJ for unselfish play, guarding the toughest guy etc. Said scheduling toughest part of the job and getting worse -- setting expectations for home/road imbalance. Jamal's matured and doing well but not likely to take HG's spot. Among other stuff.
I'll try and get the captcha thing modified....it is a bitch apparently.
Personally, I'm okay making two for one deals with teams that are perennial powerhouse types, although I know Coach Alford is not a fan of that himself. The Lobos are really in a tough spot because those teams treat the Lobos like we do the Houston Baptist teams of the world. We would never go play on East Mountain Cornfield Tech's home floor. It makes little sense. Road games are tough. At Oral Roberts was a loss a couple years ago when we were the 12th ranked team in the nation. San Diego (not SDSU) was a game the Lobos probably lose without Roman going 8-9 from the 3 pt line. Teams are afraid of the Lobos and rightly so. In order to get marquee name teams in The Pit, the Lobos will have to compromise some things unfortunately. Getting national relevance by making noise in the Big Dance this year would go a long way in helping with our future schedule.
if CNM would start a juco program maybe we could get more teams interested in playing here...right now there is no recruiting base for visiting teams to show off for...that's a big difference from las vegas and unlv...
'...the Pit is just God awful uncomfortable for a visiting team.'
...he yells, "No one comes to the hoop now, Melvin. No one!", Harv Schmidt to Mel Daniels
“They’re loud and they get on you. They know everything about you. They know your mom’s name.”, jimmer fredette.
...Bobby Knight was screaming at his starters for being late. "We're getting our #!&$@$ kicked! Because you were late!".
Alford said that scheduling deals between the Big-10/Pac-12 and Big-East/SEC to play games against each other mean there are fewer opportunities available to play those schools. Between the Big-10/ACC challenge, a neutral court event, the PAC-10/BIG scheduling, (something else in there), Indiana only has buy games left. So the only way to play many of those teams is to agree to a buy game at their place or get into a neutral court event with them.
Also added that exposure on national tv/ESPN networks have been really good for them this year with recruits (& present players & their families) & that since ESPN can"t broadcast in the Pit it means they will have to go on the road, to a "neutral" site (like the supposed neutrality of OKC & aTm), or the big pre-conf tourneys. Said that scheduling has become one of THE biggest challenges in the business. Especially so because of the conf re-alignment crap (my word, not his). They started working on 2013/14 schedule last August, but for the next 2 years they don't know how many games they will have to fill because they don't know who will be in the conf or if a merger will take place. Pretty much eluded the fact that we will have to start going to buy games on the road, & still try to get at least 16 home games. You could definitely sense the frustration in his tone.
The one question no one asked, & i was hoping for was about the new president & if he's a big athletics guy.
