2. Toman Watchtoman

Each of the past 2-3 summers, we’ve been on Jim Toman Watch. Will this year finally be the year the Flames’ 8-year skipper answers the call from another school?

There’s already been lots of movement on the men’s basketball roster, will there be any additions this summer? What will the final roster look like for the 2015-16 season?

In addition to the roster, we’ll be following several other aspects of first-year (for the 2nd time) head coach Ritchie McKay’s men’s basketball team. How will the schedule look? How much of the pack-line will be installed for this season? What will the offense look like? Will there be a summer foreign tour (they’re due for one)?

The recent news of safety Gary Sampson and quarterback J.T. Bradwell being removed from the football team raises plenty of questions that must be answered this summer.
