  1. UNLV basketball

    Tell me about your Men's basketball team? Last year, you were really bad. This season, you are playing the "powers" of the nation and play like you belong. What changed so dramatically? Transfers, JC kids? New philosophy and schemes?
  2. In the NFL, Steve DeBerg had a long successful career. Jeff Garcia was also there with multiple Pro-Bowl appearances.
  3. A good human being. In his brief stint at SJSU he was clearly well loved and a force for good. RIP.
  4. Wyoming vs SJSU

    At least we beat a FBS team. THat makes us better than Fresno was last season.
  5. SDSU @ SJSU (Week 10)

    I have SDSU by 25.
  6. Kicking out SJSU of MW gains wider fan approval

    As I am sure you are aware, Zimmerman and NOW were very smart in suing the entire CSU system rather than the one or two schools implicated in, in their opinion, not granting Gender based fairness to everyone. By suing the 23 campus system that only had 3 FBS programs, the other 20 schools had "no skin in the game" and settled (court stipulation) rather than fight a lawsuit in which they had no interest. They threw SDSU, SJSU and CSU/Fresno under the bus. Hasn't that stipulation now expired???
  7. Tell us about your basketball team

    We are likely to take a step back this season. The transfer to Gonzaga of Brandon Clark really hurts. He was our "all-everything" last year. Here is what we have now. Probably use a lot of 3 and 4 Guards lineups. Center Oumar Barry-- A true Center at 6'11". Transfer in and is a Jr. Ashton Chastain-- Also a Center at 6'11" and a Sophomore. Forwards Keith Fisher III-- is a highly touted Freshman at 6"8". Ryan Welage-- Second leading scorer last year and is expected to carry that #1 load this year. 6'9" Jr. Walter Graves III-- May red shirt. 6'7". True Frosh. Ryan Singer-- 6'10" Jr. Guards Noah Baumann-- At 6'5" a Guard/Forward. May also red shirt. Nai Carlisle-- Highly touted Freshman and is 6'2" Jaycee Hillsman-- 6'6". May be used at forward. Rugged. Jalen James-- Real veteran. Team's only Sr. 6'4". Isaiah Nichols-- 6'5". Got a lot of starts last season as a true Fr. A So. Ryan Parilla-- True Frosh. 5'10". Caleb Simmons-- 6'6" True Frosh. May red shirt.
  8. You say that the CSU system will pay for the land. Is that a real commitment by the system or a "hope".
  9. Has SDSU definitively solved a new stadium's location? It seems to me that until the location issue is settled, the design cannot be finalized. Is the AD putting the cart before the horse? Stadia designs are, often, dictated by the land availability, lot size and topography of their locations.
  10. Your Top 5 Favorite Football Schools

    1. San Jose State 2. Notre Dame 3. Michigan State 4. San Diego State 5. California
  11. OT: Y.A. Tittle Dies

    Y.A. was a guest and speaker at one of our Quarterback Club dinner meetings. He had quite a few stories and a great sense of humor. Everyone at that event received an autographed copy of that iconic foto with personalized comments. Mine is framed and hanging in my office. He and, especially. his son were supporters of Spartan football.
  12. SJSU Coaches Being Sued for Discrimination

    FWIW, it is A COACH not coaches. Second, the coach was gone from SJSU prior to the lawsuit. Third, it is an allegation. Visual evidence does not support the charge.
  13. HS Football Participation Has Peaked

    Wow, that sure bucks the trend here. Wealthy Marin County (north of San Francisco) is really struggling with continuing football in its high schools. It is a numbers game. High schools in that wealthy county are finding it difficult to get their numbers up.
  14. Brent Brennan

    Probably true but it, apparently, did not impact Hill's hire. He was going to be offered the job and, apparently, would have accepted.
  15. San Jose State at UNLV

    UNLV is favored by 10 and is at home. Nevertheless this is an important predictor for San Jose State. They lose this one and a 1-12 record looks to be likely.
