    packerpoke, I think you’re onto something. …


  4. The sad thing about this is that Holmstrom is a very good coach and could have done wonderful things for the program had he had the support that was needed from all those who were involved. I wish him the best, and hope that Laramie realizes what a big mistake this is….

    It is very very sad that a school that had such a winning tradition and fans supporting their programs has dropped to such a level. For years and years the Laramie football program was one of the most successful and feared in the state. I don’t know what has happened down there and I don’t know why anyone would want to step into that total mess and turmoil. (Where is the new John Sr. and John Jr going to come from to straighten this out?)

  6. This is going to get very interesting. Not sure if Coach Holmstrom has spoken with an attorney or not.
    Wonder if this has anything to do with Burman’s son not playing QB?
    Wonder if this has something to do with assistant coaches who have somehow hung onto their fb coaching jobs or did the hires of Trieck, Waring, Knapton and Holmstrom have to keep guys on staff?
    If they hire someone from outside the program, they have to have turnover and bring in new guys. If they hire from within, look for the same results as the student-athletes obviously are not responding.
    Laramie has great kids and athletes and this thing can turn around with the right guy.

    When you make a claim like that, bill, you better do two things: (1) put your real, full name on it; (2) clean up your grammar.


  9. You no nouthing about what happened this season, you just here stuff so maybe you should do some reserch first ok thanks.

    And now you’re just embarrassing yourself.

    *comma splice

    If you can express yourself more clearly — and with your full name — then you are welcome here any time. Until then, I’m going to protect you from yourself.


  11. Bill may have been benched due to bad grades!

  12. Coach Holmstrom was a nice guy and worked hard for football.
    I have a feeling that when the word gets out; Laramie will have to hire from within–and then the locals will see who has been damaging that program!
