  1. He must have bought into SDSU's mantra. Once you leave the BW, you never want to go back.
  2. @wolfpack1 That came outta left field
  3. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/aztecs/sd-sp-sdsu-aztecs-basketball-rod-palmer-cal-poly-20190322-story.html Two other coaches with SDSU ties figure to be in the mix. Marvin Menzies, recently fired by UNLV, is known to have spoken with Cal Poly officials about the opening.
  4. What's your take on this? The BW earned 2 tournament credits for the third time in four years, either matching or surpassing the MW in credits earned. 2016: Hawaii second round, Fresno 1 and done 2017: UC Davis First Four win, Nevada 1 and done 2019: UC Irvine second round, Nevada and USU 1 and done.
  5. UCI finishes 31-6. They won their first NCAA tournament game in program history and set a school record for most wins in a season.
  6. UCI ran out of gas. Oregon onto the Sweet 16
  7. UCI erases a 14 point lead early in the 2nd half . I hope they have enough in the tank at the end.
  8. Rooting for Ohio State feels dirty. But it's either that or the 'p6' Houston... Yuck
  9. Two separate reports from San Diego and the Central Coast saying he at least asked about it, and one (Zeigler here in SD) said Menzies figured to be in the mix. So yes, I trust that to be accurate.
  10. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/aztecs/sd-sp-sdsu-aztecs-basketball-rod-palmer-cal-poly-20190322-story,amp.html https://www.keyt.com/sports/update-on-cal-poly-basketball-head-coaching-search/1061826890 SDSU assistant Rod Palmer reportedly a finalist for the Cal Poly job. Palmer previously spent 11 years as an assistant at Long Beach State. Marvin Menzies has inquired about the job and is in the mix. Supposedly, Larry Eustachy was interviewed as well.
  11. But having your friend shot up can change things in a hurry. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2362067-jerry-tarkanian-almost-coached-the-1980s-lakers-dynasty I cannot fathom what Tark would have done with Kareem, Magic and the Lakers
  12. IIRC, Tark strongly considered taking the Lakers job in the late '70s.
  13. Russell Turner's been at UCI for 9 years. The comforts of Orange County, fertile recruiting grounds... and Russell Turner will leave that for the Vegas frying pan? If he leaves, I think his preference is a p6 job and ideally on the east coast.
  14. There is one noteworthy exception to that. Good ol' Jim Harrick - who won a national championship as a head coach at UCLA - is now an assistant at Cal State Northridge.
  15. UCI has the sons of former NBA players Doc Rivers, Caron Butler and Christian Welp, and the grandson of Walt Hazzard. And other players who are not bums.
  16. One of those at-large NIT bids in 2016 went to Long Beach State. So it can be done.
  17. The loser gets one. The winner moves into the round of 64, earning another unit https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/sports/ncaa-money/ Dream scenario If, by the will of the basketball gods, a team plays in the first four, and makes it all the way to final four, the conference would earn an uncommon six units, guaranteeing six annual unit payments for six years.
  18. And those units do count. So ASU earned 2 for the Pac.
  19. Fullerton has sent a few players to the NBA also. Not exactly royalty, but you could do worse than Leon Wood, Cedric Ceballos and Bruce Bowen.
  20. And UC Davis in 2017. #firstfourcountstwoo
