    If the Lobo players work as hard as their coach.......

    First Post Banner
    I must say I'm impressed with what Weir and his staff has done in super late recruiting. It's clear he's willing to match the effort he expects with his players.

    He's got a tough task ahead to shape a bunch of strangers into a cohesive team in a very short period of time, but he's sure got my attention.

    I'll still be happy with a .500 season, but I'm cautiously beginning to think it could be more than that.

    No way this team has a .500 season. The shackles of the tedious offense the team ran under coach Neal will be taken off. Look for Mathis, Kuiper, and especially Logwood to break out this year. There are plenty of players on this team that have never gotten a real chance to show what they can do. I would also expect to see huge impact from Mcdougal(sp?) This team should compete for a top 3 regular season finish. Coach Weir has shown that he is a real leader. His old team won 21 in a row last year.

    My suspicions are similar to yours, but I leave that on the best case scenario end of the ledger.
    My mid- to worst case scenarios include a myriad of starts, ranging from meh to not good, but all of them contain no collapses down the stretch months of February and March.
    By the end of the season, I almost expect we'll truly be a team nobody wants to have to play in a tournament, whatever those tournaments may be.

    I'm thinking we will be above .500. We lost some good players, but, IMO, I don't think they ever played as a team or with great effort. Coach Neal's famous last words were.." You can't coach effort". I disagree. We lost to many teams without as much talent as we had. We had a couple of guys that all they cared about was their individual performance and not the team performance.

    I think this team has better talent than last year and I think that coach Weir will teach them to rise to the occasion. I think they will play as a team and win as a team. You are right Big Mel....Coach Weir works hard and it sets a good example for this year's team.

    I expect the players will work/play as the coaches have done recruiting. Coach W. will be involved during the game working refs, coaching sets, and coaching effort. I believe the offense we will see will be exciting and hopefully the fans react with more standing and louder cheering, lets bring the PIT back to what is supposed to be, 1 MILE HIGH AND LOUDER THAN H#^^. Fans can get players playing hard... Fans can take back the PIT..

    I love your enthusiasm, but we've only got an 11 man roster. If you take out the 2 freshmen, because freshmen all develop at their own pace, that leaves 9. I believe that we can have a very nice rotation with the remaining 9 players and possibly challenge for a MWC title. However, the one thing we can't afford is major injuries like we had last year. In order for our best case scenario to materialize we have to stay healthy.

    I'd be surprised to see this team win a conference title because I just don't see a star player at the title level. Even a player like Dairese Gary, for example, was not good enough to carry the team to a title during the year when he was the best player. That said, I do think that the talent on this team is good enough to do better than last year's.

    One of my saddest moments as a Lobo fan was when D's knee buckled. There was an horrific silence in the arena, and I'm sure in every living room with a TV. Dairese was all about toughness and heart, and that attitude made him the unquestioned leader. Alford's first best move was to bring him to UNM. He set the tone for what was to follow. A true Lobo.

    Every single one of Alford's teams had the same, or in some years fewer, players as we do this season.

    If Weir gets the team to buy into the "Run and Stun" this program will make waves soon.

    This system is perfect for UNM. Wear the other team out with the press. The Lobos will get the home crowd in the game and will be able to compete against more talented teams.

    Agreed on that, and I didn't mean any disrespect to him.

    Wow
    My position as a moderator adds no validity to my opinions. I am a fan just like you and as such when I express a view it represents me and me alone and carries no more weight than any other fan other than the fact that I am always right. (Like everyone else.)

    Neal only played 7-9 players each game and usually only 7 We will be just fine with our 11.
