The Bobcats, in Huse's tenure, haven't had many issues with good starts when it comes to Big Sky play. In five seasons, MSU hasn't had one start below .500 and has displayed records of 6-2 and 5-3 as the first half of the schedule closed in 2009-10 and 2010-11, respectively. Last year, the Bobcats shot out to a 5-1 start in the Big Sky. Coincidentally, MSU opened conference play at home and went 2-0 in both homestands. The Bobcats' home record under Huse is 24-14.I did a podcast with Gidal earlier this week which will be posted at some point. Of all the traditional media guys that follow the league or the teams in the league, Gidal is the one I have found most knowledge about the Big Sky as a whole. Check out his preview.
