That's a fact huh?

Our FB coach has had ONE covid ravaged season (a season where everything was off), but he's already put together some of the best recruiting we've EVER seen at UNLV and had both classes ranked 2nd in the MW.

Our BB coach just got hired a couple weeks ago, but has already gotten off to a better start than our 2 previous coaches, by far. He also has his potential Hall of Fame Father by his side, and if you don't think that's a big deal, then brace yourselves. Also, nobody cares if Kevin will be "holding his Daddy's hand", all we care about are wins, if Kevin needs his Daddy's help, so be it, whatever works. The last time Lon was at UNLV, we were part of the Big 3 that dominated the MW.

Finally, just about every Rebel fan has said congratulations to SJSU for this hire, its a great hire for THEM, but Miles is a coach that has just TWO NCAA tourney appearances in 15 years as a D1 head coach, not exactly lighting the world on fire.

Let's come back to this in about 3 years and see who's hires are better.

Have a sweet drink of tea and settle down Bublo. UNLV is recruiting well, but just ask Team Hot Dog Babysitter how well that worked for him.

Thanks. It feels like SJSU has finally stepped up to join the MWC in men’s basketball.  We Spartan fans are happy to finally get in the game.  It will take a few years, but hopefully we won’t be embarrassing the MWC much longer in regards to men’s hoops.  We can hope now. 

You’re making the Big Sky all hot and attracted to you.

I don't know about futility. Rice has had Boise in the champ mix most seasons. The guy has been solid for BSU, but it does seem like he is on a downward trend lately. BSU isn't ever really gonna be a hoops school tho, so that can limit what a coach can do too.

In comparing Miles at CSU to Leon at BSU, Miles just had slightly more success, and then plateaued. So I still say Miles has a slightly higher ceiling, but not by much. 

I am kind of surprised BSU keeps hanging on to Leon, given he has clearly hit his ceiling and regressed, but that is part of what proves BSU ain't even gonna be a hoops school. They are fine with just being in the mix.

He got us to a new level but he's stuck there IMO.   I was hoping the portal would make up for his shortcomings with talent but not so much yet.

I always found Santa Cruz to be a cooler town. But IV has its charm. 

UCSB is great and sorry to disappoint the Gaucho but this place wins.

Malibu is beautiful, and Pepperdine is a great school. But I don't think I would call any of those places particularly "cool." Too rich.

SLO is the town

Great town. Not on the beach, tho. 

BTW, Davis is the best college town in the state. Everyone knows that. Kneel to the king. 

Chico is second place, if only because the townies there are bat +++++ing shit crazy.

SLO is the best college town in CA and it’s not close.  Davis is a distant second. 
 

Santa Cruz County is the coolest beach area in CA. The true Surf City.

Chico > Davis only because the townies are batshit +++++ing crazy.

It's true.

Arcata has to be up there too. SLO is nice enough but too hillbilly for my tastes. Santa Cruz and IV are cool as +++++ too. I lived on a couch in IV for a time.

Berkeley sucks.

Just watched the presser. Love this guys energy. 

He’s gonna make SJSU basketball better and that’s gonna help the entire league.  If men’s basketball can start bringing in some revenue (at least pay for itself), it will help the entire SJSU athletic dept.

I spent significant time in both. SLO is great, but Davis is a better college town. I'd allow some dissent, but the idea that Davis is "distant" as a second means this may not be a serious convo. 

Also, as stated - don't sleep on Chico. Great college town, and also much wilder than Davis or SLO because of the Deliverance factor.

Hillbilly? Do you know how much homes cost in SLO these days? True that CP is part AG school, but they make that cool with the equestrian center they have and all the property they own.

Houses in Bozeman, MT are expensive too these days, but it doesn't change the fact the place is too hillbilly for my tastes.

The whole school is either rich suburban kids from LA/the Bay or rich hillbillies from the Valley. The area is pretty but the people aren't my cup of tea.

Honestly, though, Gainesville is funner than any college town in CA IMO. And that isn't close.

I have family in Chico and also multiple college pals of mine were from Chico-adjacent places (Durham, Paradise, etc.). So I spent a lot of time out there in college. Wild, wild place if you end up in the right/wrong corner. Great fun, though. Good people, if a little nuts. Sounds like your kinda place.

Arcata is a great town too, but I feel like it's a little niche. A lot of (wrong) people find it boring, I think. But when I was an undergrad, my buddies and I maybe 3 or 4 times would take a road trip up the coast, cross over into Ashland to catch a play, stay a night or two around Shasta and then come back home down I-5. On the way up, every time we stayed a night in Arcata planning to camp out but would always meet up with a cool group who would let us crash at their place or in the dorms. That town/campus has such a great vibe.

SLO is totally hillbilly.

This is correct. 

The town of SLO is really fun.  Just a nice pretty small town. I’ve had a bunch of my family go to school there, so I’m biased I’m sure. 

Never had that much fun in Davis but I’ll admit to be an old guy on this.  I got accepted to UCD and chose SJSU over it back in the day.  UCD was a real cow college with ugly women back then and all their sports were D2.  My frat chapter in SJ installed the one at Davis back in the day, so I did hang out there some.
 

....and yes, I know how great a school UCD is and I do sometimes regret my decision.  Times and things change. UCD is more popular now than it was back then.

No mountains, so no mountain people. A party in Paradise full of kids from Chico State was a thing to behold back in the day. As was a party at a Chico State house with kids from Paradise.
