    Matt, take a look at how 100% of all HS prospsect are featured here on the east coast. Their AAU program is always mentyioned especailly if its an elite program. wasnt rying to insult you in any way. Sorry if you didnt recognize it as important. Best Regards

    Matt, not very smart to post and extensive article about Mario Moody and not acknowledge or recognize his elite AAU program anywhere in he article. I dont know how you do things in the Rockies but thats absolutely a protocol no no here in the east.

    Matt, I really admire your coverage for the Rams. As a Colorado native, I always support the local teams. Mostly I am a Buffs fan, but I went to CSU-Pueblo so I am not a "hater" of the Rams.

    If you would be interested in writing some 2010 Rocky Mountain Showdown "how they matchup" articles to help pump up this years game, I would be more than willing to be the Buffs advocate in that type of thing.

    Take care!

    Northern Iowa beat UNLV by 3, Kansas by 2. So either Kansas sux, or Northern Iowa is pretty good. Shoots your theory right out of the window.

    Hey Matt why don't you redue your MWC coaches ratings, I think your opinion on the last article was a bit off the mark, genious!

    Hey there Matt, just wanted to drop you a quick line of hope that we don't get confused for one another. Though, with you being pretty well entrenched in the Rockies and myself being just as deep in the South as it gets, I doubt it's likely.
    Best of luck to you and I look forward to reading your work!
