    Welcome Mr Jackson. First Congradulations on both your graduation and becoming a Lobo. We wish you a great year at UNM academically, socially and athletically. Get that Masters and go for a MWC Championship - that would be a great double/double.

    Woot!

    He will be very valuable next season. Likely means Harris is gone. Get ready for a fast-paced Lobos team.

    Great news! Antino is exactly the type of recruit Weir needed to get for next season. Between he and Troy Simons our guard corps has been strengthened immensely.

    Welcome, Antino!

    We're going to have a lot of quick guards that can shoot. A totally new look.

    Let's get Beverly or Combs, or both!

    Rebuild quickly. Create and INSTILL a culture that can last for any under graduate. Alford did that more or less with some key older players.

    Great get.

    Sorry but you acquire, and build on players who want to be here. College hoops moves so fast. I wish the best for anyone who now decides to transfer. But the future is now. One great year of learning for teammates of Antino is far better than a fringe player who may or may not want to be here. You forget, move on, and build.

    Yep

    I think coach may be saying in nicer terms, "you're not holding us hostage as we try to build something".

    I sugjest that as this transition period evolves we not jump to conclusions - we could inadvertently say things about kids that are dealing with an uncertain situation and one they didn't think when they became Lobos that they would be dealing with. Let's welcome any new Lobos without assuming anything about others and let Weir and the players work that out - hopefully to the end of mutual benifit. In this fluid situation, patience truly is a virtue that could be a positive contribution to our Lobos. Just my thoughts about how as fans we can help.

    Nice get. I'm excited. I don't think he has the upside of Harris, nor the 3 years to develop, but I think he'll be better than last year's Harris

    Could use a big for depth, but I am liking what I see so far.

    Weir is two for two on closing two of the guys he was after, both adding speed, effort,
    and shooting. I'm excited about what he can do to land a couple of good PF's. We grab a couple guys that can get in meaningful rotation right away, and we're definitely hearing in the right direction.

    Are we sure it's not two for three?

    That wouldn't be bad either.

    With ZERO starters returning from last year, IMO, we need to add a "starting" quality big if we expect to have a really good post season type season. I think we have a solid enough back-court + wings to get to the post season.

    Now, our achilles heal, lack of any depth in the post. Let's go coach, get us some starting post players!!!

    BTW, great pick-up in the guard position. Seems like a great shooter and will help us space the floor as well as give us a proven scorer.

    I get excited for players that want to be lobos. Jalen is looking for greener pasture and hasn't made up his mind on wanting to be a lobo yet.
