Re: YEAH, LOOKS LIKE WERE GOING TO HAVE A SEASON.

Most of the contracts are guaranteed. Viks get the money regardless if the games are played or not. Rumor is that, instead of buying out the games, the Pac-12 is going to see about pushing the non-conference games to next year. If all the conferences (FBS and FCS) play just a conference schedule th...

Re: YEAH, LOOKS LIKE WERE GOING TO HAVE A SEASON.

Right now, MLS and NBA are “going into the bubble” in Orlando. There’s already dozens of positive tests between them, there are rumors of all sorts of “bubble failures,” Orlando is right in the middle of the worst growth of the virus in these fine United States, and every indication is that they’re ...

Re: PSU is growing up

Took my daughter to the campus this morning for her appointment to get her belongings out of a locker at the student rec center. It’s been closed due to pandemic, appointments are used to maintain social distance, la de da. Thus the rabbit hole trap was set for me. https://www.amazon.com/photos/shar...

Re: Tournament time

I'll declare that, after athletes end up getting tested positive, there may not be an NCAA tournament. The Big 10 and AAC cancelled their tournaments this morning. The WAC had started playing, but a game was cancelled because of a sick athlete. Kind of thinking Portland State was on a roll. Definite...

If it happens.

There's no reported cases in Idaho (at least as of yesterday), but there's no testing in Idaho. Just saying.

Re: Conference tournament

3:35 Pacific Time, 4:35 Boise Time, 10:35 in Timbuktu.

25 minutes from Vikings and EWU, in case you were wondering.

If you want some extra added angst, DOWN (which many would know here as UP, so I went Captain Obvious on it) just upset Gonzaga in the WCC women's semis.

Re: Tournament time

Fairly solid game. Lineup change and other adjustments might scare me a little in any given minute, but in the end that allowed PSU to finish strong.

Plus a rather loud student section last night. Go figure.

Northern Colorado is probably in a somewhat more serious pickle than EWU. Not that there's any faculty action at this point.

Re: 2019-2020

What's happened to the offense?

What little I've been able to watch of late (schedule and "a series of minimally invasive procedures"), the crucial buckets aren't there. The flow changed for the worse.

Shot selection?

Re: Pluto TV through Xfinity

When we would visit my grandfather (Dad's father) on an autumn Saturday back in the 70s, he'd have the TV game on and the Oregon State radio broadcast on his radio (he had the earphone to keep that quiet). My father (the one who actually went to Oregon State) was perhaps a little unnerved by that. I...

Re: Pavilion

One way to look at this: the women's program brought Tennessee to Portland. That's already an improvement. That happened to be a women's attendance record here. I can guess being upset that it costs more than $10 to sit within 7 rows of the floor (unless you're a student) is probably an issue. The d...

Re: The Future

On one hand, I believe the San Jose State faculty made a similar recommendation while I lived down there... 27 years ago. I also recall, at some point after (with thanks to those silly early interwebs) that San Diego State faculty were at least giving strong consideration to same. At least in San Jo...

Considering how much Sac fans complain about their "bleacher feature," you'd think they'd want to travel to a place with substantive restrooms like Hillsboro.
