    Agreed, seems to be really comfortable talking about the team and their shooting struggles. He knows they're good enough to play through it. Very clear about the focus too, win out this week and get some rest/reset....

    That was a good listen. He is right though. Once the shots start to fall...watch out!!!

    He also seems to think the poll rankings are a big deal.

    It's hard to win sometimes when the shots are falling. To be 8-0 and not have scored the ball very well is something to be proud of. Especially with the schedule they have played.

    maybe not the rankings so much, but all the benefits that come along with being a ranked team. (directv, hit red button get score instantly, our scores and schedules run on espn tickers 24/7, highlight packages on espn and other networks)

    It's all about getting the name brand out there that will lead to landing some big fish down the road and more awareness of our program to the common MBB fan out there. It should help in scheduling as well. Now, it will be a more attractive match-up between us and say a blue blood type team or another perennial top 25-50 type program. Maybe easier to schedule a made for TV match-up on a neutral court? (Kansas next year)

    I liked the little jab at what I would assume is Wyoming's scheduling.

    If we can stay undefeated through this week I think our Lobos could be in a position where a loss wouldn't take us out of the rankings. You can not understate how important that is.

    I have a feeling the lack of a Mark Smith presence has taken Coach off the defensive.
    Very nice Press Conference.

    I will continue to preach this - GET MICROPHONES INTO THE GALLERY, SO WE CAN HEAR THE QUESTIONS!!!! Arrggghh! Drives me crazy!

    Yes....it's not like there aren't going to be any questions, it's a press conference, get a mike or two on a hand boom and let everyone hear the question!!! It's like a test, spend half of coaches answer trying to figure out what the question was. If it's a presser, let's hear the questions too.


    The original point and click interface was a Smith & Wesson.

    I've suggested that to Frank before -- but apparently it fell on deaf ears.

    I listened to the presser wearing headphones. You can hear every question.

    It has nothing to do with deaf ears, but with logistics...we would need either a giant boom microphone and then me holding it and reaching over folks, or we would have to get a whole new malt box set up (the malt box is why you just see one microphone at the podium and not four or five).

    When we have the major pressers with an audience, we amplify the questions, which is why you can hear the questions. I did talk with Frank Yost, and adding the text would delay our stuff getting up by at least an hour if not more, which I don't want.

    We will however try something where an audience mike will get pumped back into Frank's camera. It still might not pick up things, but we can give that a shot this week.

    How does one go without the other - i.e. the benefits that result from the rankings? We don't get all of the those benefits without the ranking so why wouldn't Alford care about them? By the way, you left out the benefit of helping our recruiting capability.
