Did any of us ever imagine Aron Baynes doing this?

Baynes_fg6

I know some of us like to keep tabs on former Cougs in the NBA. Obviously Klay Thompson is lighting up the Bay Area, but Baynes is finding some regular minutes as a role player for the Spurs. Check out this unbelievable move he made the other night. Fakes a handoff at the top of the key, burns his defender on a drive to the hoop, and finishes with a powerful dunk over the help defender. Unbelievable! HT poundingtherock.com

Conference Realignment history since 1965

1

The NY Times ran this graphic to accompany the piece highlighted the other day on construction projects in the Pac-12. It's a cool graphical description of how the major conferences have shifted and colleges realigned over time. You can also highlight a particular school to easily track their history. I'd suggest TCU!

The delusion we tell ourselves

I've read numerous posts and comments from Cougar fans the last few weeks, and really over the last six years, about how we as Cougar fans just have to wait out the bad times. That it will all be...

Death Cab for Cutie's Ichiro Tribute

A nice tribute song from Death Cab for Cutie. It's a little cheesy, but also a little catchy. Go go go go Ichiro! We'll miss you!

Karstetter named Pac-12 Student-Athlete of the Year!

Congratulations and thank you Jared for all you've given this program and for doing things the right way!

Karstetter a national finalist for the Campbell trophy

+

I know our focus is on the head coach search but we should acknowledge and honor Jared for all he has done for WSU both on and off the field. As a finalist for this award, he receives an $18K scholarship for post-graduate study, which would increase to $25K if he wins. Candidates are judged on a mixture of football success, academic achievement, and community leadership. IT CAN ONLY BE JARED!

Karstetter, McCartney 1st Team Pac-12 Academics

Jared Karstetter and Kyle McCartney make the Pac-12 All-Academic 1st Team, while Andrei Lintz makes the 2nd team. Several Cougs were honorable mentions as well. Congrats to these true student athletes!

Brilliant New Play Calling Idea: C.H.P.M.W.

Saw this on EDSBS regarding the unfathomably low level of sophistication Ole Miss used last week for calling plays. The post is both hilarious and embarrassing but the real gold is in the comments section. Bonus points if you can guess the play call in the title of this fan shot!

Kyle Weaver leads team to Belgian League Title

+

Weaver put up a familiar sort of stat line: 14 pts, 7 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 2 blocks. He led the team in scoring and as a bonus put up 22 IDX. I don't know what IDX is, but it seems to be good.

Quick guide on "who to root against"

I'm a little too obsessed with Bubble Watches and bracket projections. I can't help it - as long as the Cougs have a shot I'll keep reading every opinion by Joe Schmoe (or Lunardi). I thought I'd...

Really excellent Pac-10 baseball preview (CGB)

Bowl Schedules Out

Pac-10 gets two BCS bids in the first time since, well, forever. 2003 maybe? WSU and USC that year I think. Anyways, good matchups this year: Rose Bowl: TCU vs. Wisconsin (great O, great D) Fiesta: UConn vs. Oklahoma (I'll probably skip this one) Sugar: Ohio State vs. Arkansas (should be fun & high scoring) Orange: VaTech vs. Stanford (like Stanford to run away with this one) Championship: Wait, I forget...
