PODCAST: Tourney Time in the MWC
LARAMIE -- We had an awful lot to catch up on after missing the last two weeks.
The flu sucks, by the way.
Cody Tucker and Jared Newland talk about the incoming Wyoming Hall of Fame class, new defensive ends coach Brian Hendricks, the latest in Cowboy basketball and the recently released football schedule, which features five home games over the first six weeks.
What do you think about the Cowboys schedule?
Jared says it's a pain for people to drive to Laramie that many weekends in a row. Cody says there's not only the potential to be bowl eligible rather quickly, but early season home games mean better weather and crowds.
Like anything, it's probably somewhere in the middle.
Who isn't in the Wyoming Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame that probably should be? We share our thoughts on that and the class that will be honored this September. Hendricks was the absolute perfect hire to replace Marty English on Craig Bohl's staff.
Because we said so on this very show three weeks ago. Maybe Bohl is listening to us? (Insert eyeroll emoji here.)
Jeff Linder's squad just capped a forgettable nine-win season last Saturday night in San Diego. The Aztecs were doused in confetti, Wyoming has the No. 11 seed at this week's tournament in Las Vegas. Remember when we thought that finale could be for all the marbles? Ahh memories.
By now you know everything that could go wrong for this team has. In case you need a refresher, here is a story about it from last week, including some great remarks from assistant coach Sundance Wicks. He was asked if he ever daydreams about the possibility of everyone returning next season along with a score to settle?
"Yes, this entire team should have a chip on their shoulder," he said matter-of-factly. "The people that come back -- whoever decides to come back and 'Ride for the Brand' like they should ... and have that Poke pride -- they should have a chip on their shoulder. You never just shut the season off and say, 'This year didn't exist. This year didn't happen.' You should take all these little things that happened in the course of this year and use those as lessons for the future and grow from that, learn from that. And that will make you a remarkable team next year, having learned those lessons and stayed the course.
"But I do like to daydream."
