Idaho

Impressive win last night, but why, given how the season has gone where we can beat the best teams (Montana, Northern Colorado) and lose to the bad teams (Idaho earlier, Sac State), do I not have much confidence we can win at Idaho State and Weber next week. :oops: Maybe we can beat Montana State an...

Re: The Future

Interesting news of sorts from around the conference. Here is a story from KREM-2 in Spokane as well as NBC Sports about a report being sent to EWU's board of trustees about eliminating their whole athletic department (hmm, sounds familiar) https://www.krem.com/article/sports/ewu-faculty-senate-grou...

Re: Pavilion

i actually like it and it brings us in to more in line with the rest of the conference venues. Granted it is not Dee Events, but now our arena does not look like a slightly bigger version of Sac State's Beehive. While most of our sporting events are scattered all around the metro area, this is actua...

Seems to me like we hit California pretty hard and let the local FCS talent go elsewhere in the conference. Pretty interesting. :roll:

Re: Montana @ PSU - 01.30.2020

Good win on Thursday. Some thoughts. - Good crowd. I have to think that if our record were a bit better and we were fighting in the top three spots in the BSC, we’re probably getting over 2k for this game. - Great energy out of the gate. Active hands getting on balls and rebounding was great. I thi...

I will not get excited until Boise State commits... and ask a few conferences how that's gone sometime. https://twitter.com/C_Austin_Cox/status/1220529434891096065?s=20 Don't tell Boise that is exactly what Idaho did. :lol: Seriously, I'm thinking Boise is using the Big Sky and the WCC (and the AAC...

Arizona

Our opener at Arizona actually will be the second game for the Wildcats as they have a Week 0 game at Hawaii. They are expecting a "fast" start.

Two home games coming up for the Viks. Saturday against Idaho State and Monday against Weber. Both games at the Pavilion and both starting at 7pm. Need to win both to get back in the middle of the conference race. BTW, the Blazers play Monday night at home as well so there will be no sighting of a ...

I know the writer of that letter. He probably wants another fountain where he can skinny dip with some chick.

Re: The Future

After sifting through all the options, I'll say this: the only thing that ends in four years is the lease in Hillsboro. That's the one thing that's easy to renew. I can't see PSU committing to anything else. It is easy to renew, but is playing the games in Hillsboro truly the best option? These nex...

Re: The Future

What you missed, part 1: The best solution would be for PSU to stay in the Big Sky, play football games in a venue close to campus and the center of town, field a competitive team and hope that would lead to more fan appeal. But if you take Providence Park out of the equation, there isn’t such a ve...
