Stone should go play tight end for the Aggies next Fall. What a armful that would take to bring him down. Can't blame Stone for not wanting to play basketball anymore for the Aggies. Stew didn't respect him and neither did the players. He was open so many times underneath the basket and the rest the players ignored him. Looks like the Aggies will be playing with a bunch of guards next year. Good luck with that!

Because we just needed more bad news for this program. Shaw getting arrested was bad enough. What happened to great Aggie basketball?! What is the deal with this program?!

I sure hope Stew has an ace up his sleeve for next season, because if we play with a bunch of guards and have no big guys to play in the post, we're in HUGE trouble.

Have to start wondering how much more time Stew's got in Logan. The team actually looked pretty decent to start the season, and looked awful since conference play started. Deteriorating play, Shaw's problems midseason, Coach saying he doesn't even want his team to keep playing in the postseason if they get invited, and now departure of multiple players. Makes me think it could have something to do with the team buying into the method and program, similar to what happened to the Utes in the 2000s. Sometimes the best thing for a program is to torch the barn and start anew.

Since Stone is graduating and has a year of eligibility left, he's pretty much free to start a graduate degree somewhere and play on their team without sitting out a year. Good luck to him. Berger is a bit more complicated. He'll sit a year, but he won't find more playing time except with a lower-level school. Tough call, that one.

I'm concerned about the number of players leaving over the past several years. What is going on Stew? And why do you think the fans would not want the team to continue playing if invited to a lower tournament. Something seems out of sync.

I fear USU is pulling a "Utah" getting better in Football while ignoring Basketball. I have faith in Stew though!

Interesting that the Ags and the Utes are touting their movement to more "Prestigous" conferences but are well over their heads. But UVU moves to a stronger conference and takes first place, and BYU moves and is seeded the highest of any instate team

It is hard to consider the gutted WAC much of a stronger conference for UVU to move to.

It was painfully obvious that the aggies just doesn't have the kind of players it needs to compete in basketball in the MWC. We would have been just fine in the the WAC but that is not where the Aggies want to be. I am hoping Stew has a great plan to get the players needed to compete.

Are you still wondering why everyone thinks that those negative to USU and Utah are BYU fans? I didn't see anywhere in the article where there was a mention of BYU.

Brownderby, what is the point? This article talks about a couple players leaving, and that opens up an attack at the programs wanting to be in bigger conferences. Seems a bit off topic, for a program that has been so great. There may be some growing pains, but I think they'll both be fine. I guess no one has ever left BYU, or any other program for that matter. Truth is, every program in the country loses players year in and year out. Part of the business. People change jobs also. Is that wrong?
