Re: NBA 20-21, COVID and stuff

Looks like Seattle may get a NBA team back in a few years, with ARod and Lore buying the Timberwolves. Interesting, when the narrative early on from the city was that they would wait for expansion because they "knew how it was for your team to be ripped from the heart of the city." Now it...

Re: Big Sky Basketball, 2020-21

Heard on Portland sports talk radio today that PSU AD Cleary is hopeful that both the men's and women's jobs will be filled by April 15. Rumor is that the two "interim" coaches, Jase Coburn for the men and Chelsey Gregg for the women, have the inside track. Coburn has a recommendation from...

Re: D-I Men's Tournament

The last time a school won the men's D-1 basketball title that did not play football at the DI level (FBS or FCS) was Marquette in 1977. Marquette discontinued football in 1960.

Gonzaga discontinued football in 1941.

Re: Shantay Legens Gone to U Portland

Any Big Sky school should expect to beat UP. There are whispers in the city that UP should look at dropping down to the WAC and being a travel partner for Seattle U and maybe they would be more competitive in the WAC. But their other programs do pretty well in the WCC so just to move the men's bask...

So how much further do some of these (many) Cinderellas go? OSU? Oral Roberts? Loyola? Syracuse? UCLA? Well, Oregon State, Loyola and Syracuse are all in the same bracket. I don't think the non-Cinderella in that bracket (Houston) will go to the final 4, so I'd go with one of them making it to the ...

Re: Shantay Legens Gone to U Portland

i still am not buying it. UP men's basketball has a ways to go before they can be competitive with Pepperdine, let alone the rest of the WCC. UP is very fortunate to get a coach the caliber of Legens and they know it. But many more openings would have come available after the tournament is over, ma...

Re: Shantay Legens Gone to U Portland

Is the EWU athletic program in such dire straits that the basketball coach takes the first opportunity to get out of town? This is surely a win for UP. If a Blazer legend like Porter struggled there, I can't see how anyone can do a quick turnaround. The chasm between UP and the rest of the WCC is p...

Re: March Madness

Strange year. Portland State gave Oregon State quite a tussle early on, finally losing by 5 points. Yet this whole year we never played the Big Sky representative, EWU. Very odd. :suspicious:
