CSU’s bye week couldn’t have come at a better time with everyone on the team coming down with the flu, food poisoning, projectile vomit, and/or explosive diarrhea. Now they’ll have a full week to recover and prepare for a massive home game against San Diego State.
The downside to bye weeks as that they’re so boring! So boring, that I made this graphic to kill time until Wednesday. It is in honor of the current 26 game home streak:
You’re next Aztecs!
With the 2013 class taking shape, it’s interesting to take a look at where they come from. Below is a map showing all of CSU’s classes from 2008 to 2013:
The first thing I noticed was CSU’s entrance and exit from the Florida recruiting scene. It is painful to watch.
2013 had recruits spread across the map, with a little concentration in Colorado and California. The staff didn’t have the best results in Texas with only two commitments (not counting Brett Jordan). I’ll be curious to see if that continues in 2014.
I’m currently in the process of a big move, so I’ve been slacking on my blogging.
I’m way behind on a lot of things, but I can’t not mention Dorian Green’s dunk from the Boise game. Most outside observers will see that dunk and not be all that impressed. But it’s not great because of the actual dunk; it’s great because of who did it. After four years of layups, it was hard not to be surprised when Green threw it down.
In the aftermath, most of us immediately thought of the Jesse Carr dunk from last year’s New Mexico game. They were both similar in many ways, especially because neither guy is known for their vertical leap. But upon further review, the similarity is even more striking because it looks like the same exact play:
It’s hard to choose between the two. Green’s actual dunk is better because he’s spiking it on someone’s face. But he gets docked because the game was a blowout and Boise State is terrible.
Carr doesn’t actually posterize anyone because the Lobo was smart enough to stay down; but it came during a close game against a quality opponent.
At the end of the day I can’t decide which dunk was better, but I do know one thing: Wes Eikmeier, the pressure’s all on you now, buddy!
I’ve never been great with words, so I thought I’d visually represent San Diego State’s recent sojourn with the Big East and “big time football”:

As you may have heard, Wyoming senior guard Luke Martinez broke his right hand during a bar fight on December 30th.
The scuffle took place in Laramie, most likely in an old-timey saloon. After working our sources in the Gem City of the Plains; AlwaysSonny.com was able to obtain exclusive footage of the fight:

I was hoping to rip some nice highlights from the UTEP game on CBS Sports, but my computer’s video capture software isn’t really working and everything came out looking like VHS recordings.
I was able to salvage one clip of Pierce Hornung’s unexpected run-in with Jessie Carr:
And in honor of the recent rumors that BYU is returning to the MWC; I threw in a classic clip of Andy Ogide’s elbow getting assaulted by Jimmer Fredette’s face:
