OSU to play WSU at Qwest Field in 2011

WSU featured in this weeks "Schadenfreude"

If you guys don't regularly check out Brian Cook's excellent writing (he's the guy who does the BlogPoll and This Week in Schadenfreude), you should. They're always good for a chuckle or two. This week our victory over OSU is the top story!

Thinking NCAA Tourney - The Pac-10's Chances to Impress

Since our conference performed so pitifully last year, I thought it would be helpful to go through all the important non-con games. As we all know, better performance here will likely result in...

Apple Cup will be televised on Versus

Wow, it will be nationally televised. I wonder how many people will really watch? I will!

Three Cougs All-District Academics!

3

Sometimes I feel like academics doesn't get enough emphasis in college sports (gee I wonder why). Ted Miller has a list of Pac-10 athletes which made the District 8 All-Academic team, and you can find a full list of each district's athletes along with GPA and major here (pdf). Karstetter is majoring in zoology, Chima is in Poli Sci, and Hannam is a CivE. I'm very proud of my fellow Cougs! Side note: one of Wulff's Eastern recruits also made the list. We can't forget that one of the goals of the Wulff "administration" was to improve our academics, and this is a good step forward.

Travis Long and Marquess Wilson make his 2nd team, while Jared Karstetter and Alex Hoffman-Ellis make the 3rd team. On the minus side, what a horribly designed website. I think my eyes are bleeding. Check out the front page.

Are we actually getting better?

I think most of us agree that the Cougs are looking better this year using the eye test. I wondered if it could possibly show up in statistics as well. So I headed over to cfbstats.com to look at...

Hardly anything is as dependable as UCLA K Kai Forbath, who has hit 40 straight field goals inside the 50. (me: 40 straight!? I knew he was good, but that good?)

Very cool Pac-12 division scenario (with pretty pictures!)

4

I think this has been discussed here before, but I wanted to put this out there for other people to see, just in case. It is a pretty interesting division alignment scenario where I actually think everyone would be happy. Or at least mostly happy.

Create your own playoff race scenario

+

I created a spreadsheet with all the current results for the MLS regular season, just in W-L-T format. The result is a home / away table with blank spaces for games to be played. If anyone is interested, you can use it for a quick check on, for example, just how many home games Chicago has left (and against whom?). Or you can input results yourself, predicting how each team will finish out the season and seeing who makes the playoffs.

Nice Grippi article on Montgomery

12

Am I the only person who didn't realize Montgomery's recovery wasn't from acute compartment syndrome, but actually from microfracture surgery? James says he would have played spring ball otherwise! Overall, great article. Brian's edit: Bumped. Truly amazing how he recovered from such a serious, potentially life-threatening injury.

OKC releases Kyle Weaver

1

Some of you have probably seen this already, but I wanted to put it out there for the rest of us. Weaver is done in OKC, he just couldn't quite crack the roster. Early (unconfirmed) reports indicate he has an offer on the table from at least one European team, but I wouldn't be surprised if he tries to stay in the NBA.

New USC AD has the right attitude

Pretty interesting story on ESPN about the new SC athletic director. The story also mentions that USC is essentially erasing all memory of Bush and Mayo.

"They're not even that good. They just played a good game tonight. We weren't ready, and they beat us." Darrington Hobson after getting absolutely spanked. Unbelievable.

Funny conversation with Capers, Casto, and Nik

Sources: Utah to be invited to join Pac-10

12

The sources say Utah will be invited but BYU will not. The ABC News article then speculates that Colorado will be the other. You never know about trusting "sources" but it makes sense... brace yourselves gentlemen (and women), I think we're getting larger...

It's okay guys, the rest of the Pac-10 sucks

Here is my updated look at the Pac-10 non-conference basketball schedule and how excellently the conference has performed. I've sorted the key games thus far into Bad Losses, Bubblicious Losses,...

Klay Thompson is ESPN's Player of the Week

4

Maybe Andy Katz's love affair with us didn't end with the departure of Tony. "Coaches and administrators have told ESPN.com that this might be the worst Pac-10 in a quarter-century. But the league doesn't lack for stars. Get to know Thompson. He's a wiry scorer who should be putting up big-time numbers all season long for a potential postseason team in Ken Bone's first year in Pullman."

Pac 10 is losing chances to prove the doubters wrong
