    Something Special is about to Begin - Donít Worry, Be Happy!!

    First Post Banner
    Thumbs Up!! I am pumped.

    Question: Why?

    Answer: Because things are so upbeat at Lobo Basketball Headquarters!!

    I was there yesterday. Coaches were checking in, along with the players - practice in the PIT was about to begin. No answer was given regarding Maurice - only they are working the phones, hard. However, there wasnít the slightest hesitation in Weirís demeanor or voice when I asked him about the upcoming year. Big Smile -accompanied, (paraphrasing - I didnít record) ďWe have the players - now itís time to make a teamĒ. Then, he invited me to watch practice. Too bad my wife had other plans for me. :(

    Seriously, coaches were nearly skipping to practice. Upbeat!! Excited!! Letís go!!

    Sadly, Mathis wasnít skipping - just maneuvering his crutches. But - still a big smile because his injury per his words, is a ďworking extremely hardĒ injury. One in which he will bounce back in another month, give or take.

    Bragg has been in the gym everyday. Words used - the guy is extremely motivated. Everyone coming though the office is so big - were words spoken by a few others. And, Percy agenda was set for the weekendís visit.

    I contemplated whether to post this. Perhaps some observations arenít to be restated. But folks - letís not be concerned if a player here or there is replaced by another. The ďanotherĒ player really wants to be part of this team - and is very talented. Everyone here - player and coach - has no hesitation, only excitement itís appears. So - letís stop our hesitation (if you still have any) and instead put our efforts to rebuilding our audience.

    Weir and staff have done a tremendous job getting these players. Letís do ours and get the PIT sold out again!! The program deserves it, and the budget needs it. Come - you wonít be disappointed!!!!
    ďA positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.Ē - Herm Albright

    "...Instead put our efforts into rebuilding our audience."

    Indeed!
    Trust this Weir fella. He has it going on.
    Focus on resonating his confidence from within the Pit through our fan base. When this team gets hit in the mouth (and someone will punch them in the mouth), cheer them louder so that they'll hit back.
    Make the Pit invincible again.

    Imagine that, Lobo fans!

    weir

    : a fence or enclosure set in a waterway for taking fish
    : a dam in a stream or river to raise the water level or divert its flow

    I only wish he spelled it Weyr, but the big guy is indeed taking (the big) fish, and changing the both the level and direction of flow.
    If it were Wyer, the correlation to The Pit would have been amazing, but I'll settle for what we have = )

    A motivated and focused Carlton Bragg would be huge for us. And scary for the rest of the MWC.

    I missed the reason Mathis is on crutches. Off season knee or ankle surgery?

    The Pit is no ordinary building, it and the basketball program have supported the entire athletic department for decades, watch it save the entire thing over the next few years.
