    Never heard officially he had left. Glad he set the record straight. Big piece of the puzzle.

    I highly doubt Simons will need time to adjust like always was the case with Neal and his playbook the size of 'the rise and fall of the third reich'

    Really glad to hear that. I was very concerned when I heard the rumblings in recent weeks that he was contemplating leaving. I've really been impressed with Damien and have enjoyed watching him just like I enjoyed watching his dad. I think he's a future first team all conference player. He's going to be a star for the Lobos. Great news!

    Man that's huge! Imagine if Jalen decides to come back too?! We will have literally replaced one of our leading scorers (EB) with the #1 scorer in JUCO, and returned everybody who could be returned from last year besides X. All we need is for Connor & Joe to stay out of foul trouble & hold their own down low and wEIR cherry!

    I think jefferson will be a starter but I think Simons might be starter as well. Probably Hunter, Simons and Jefferson with logwood and MacDougall playing low.

    I'm with you guys that Simons has a good chance to start, but I don't see it happening right out the gate. Maybe I'm just used to the Alford/Neal way of things though.

    So glad Damien will continue being a Lobo. He is a vital piece of the puzzle. His dad Everitt was also a vital piece of the Lobos when he played. Both are dynamic exciting players to watch in action!

    I don't think DJ comes back if he doesn't intend to start. Simons is a combo guard so you could see him run the point too.

    This was the best news of the day! Very happy that DJ decided that being a Lobo was best. I'm waiting on Jalen to decide to stay and I can rest easy.

    DJ just seems to be as pure of a Lobo as any we've had. He's gonna make lots of noise next season.... let the posterizing commence!

    Totally agree with Julie. Their are still a couple of pieces missing from this puzzle. I am expecting, possibly, a couple of athletic forwards, along with another guard. Weir has not uttered the word "rebuild" once. He is looking to compete and win immediately.

    I don't think Weir is determining who will start based on past performance or potential, but on who gives him what he wants. From what I gather, what he wants is all out effort on both ends of the court.

    I don't think you can pencil in anyone at this point, and especially at the PG slot. Neal often complained that Hunter was not running the offense quick enough. Weir will demand it run much faster than last season. Lobos will have to go deep to fulfill what Weir envisions running. He has envoked Ellenberger's teams as examples of what he wants to run. That means high intensity defense that fuels the offense for easy buckets.

    This is great news. I agree that DJ returning is awesome news but the very early news that Dane Kiiper is returning is just as important. They give the Lobos athleticism and size on the perimeter with the ability to score double figures. With the addition of Simons, especially if Jalen returns, this gives Weir a lot of three- and four-guard rotations, and that gives him the opportunity to play hard and fast from the start.

    Your post, with the mention of Ellenberger and defense in the same sentence reminded me of a Rick Wright article published immediately after the Dave Bliss era ended. Wright said that an Ellenberger practice was typically 90% on defense, 10% on offense. He said a Colson practice was the other way around, and that a Bliss practice was 50% defense, 50% offense. I don't have any points to make here, just spending three lines on some Lobo history.
