Apparently the original was deleted... Figured it's time for a new one.

I won't complain with UW's start this year. However, not having our fourth big all year is going to hurt us. Tyreese Breshers had to retire from basketball before the season. Now UW is down to three primary bigs. So far each of the Pac-10 games all three have been in foul trouble... Will be interesting to see how this impacts the Huskies long-term.

Oregon won't be strong this year, but Altman will coach his butt off. I can't wait till next year when we've got Jabari Brown and Bruce Barron running the show, I'm also excited for Austin Kuemper and Brett Kingma as well. The new arena opens soon also, should be a spectacle.

Looks like UW's starting PG is out for the year. Gaddy went down with a torn ACL during practice.

Lucky for UW they are extremely deep at the 1-3 positions. Now I'd expect Thomas to move from SG to PG and have Wilcox or Ross start at SG.

Yeah, I doubt they win the Pac-10 tournament, and they won't get very far in the NCAA tournament because they are a one man show with Williams. They only will go as far as he can carry them, and that's only until they meet a big, physical team.

They played great in the first-half against UW, the second half proved they have a lot of work to do.

I'm starting to think Romar's philosophy isn't working. He doesn't run any sort of set plays... Which leads to UW relying on the three ball.

Definitely is a situation where Q-Pon is missed. He was the man who would slow down the game and get those 5-15 foot shots.

I disagree that they are a 1 man team...sure williams is their star, but Momo, Fogg, Parrom, etc have proven more than once they can pick it up when Williams is down.

He has been playing with 1 hand for most of the conference schedule...if they were a 1 man team, their record would have been worse

Washington State University's star basketball player Klay Thompson, 21, was arrested Thursday night in Pullman for investigation of marijuana possession.

Commander Chris Tennant, with the Pullman Police Department, said Thompson's car was pulled over about 11 p.m. Thursday for a burned-out taillight. Officers smelled the odor of burned marijuana, Tennant said, and Thompson denied having the drug.

Police impounded his car and found 1.95 grams of marijuana in the vehicle, and Thompson was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Thompson was alone in the car.

Cal is definitely the most surprising team in the Pac-10. Most experts had them going from first to worst. They had a pretty nice season in the Pac-10 with a whole new lineup. Wish they didn't choke against Arizona at home and on the road at UCLA, or else we would be talking NCAA tourney. Only way we get in is win the pac 10 tournament which is unlikely.

University of Washington men's basketball player Venoy Overton was charged Tuesday with furnishing alcohol to an underage girl in January.

The charge, a gross misdemeanor, is punishable by up to a year in jail.

Overton was suspended by coach Lorenzo Romar and will not play in the Pac-10 tournament. The Huskies play Washington State on Thursday night. Romar said if the Huskies are invited to the NCAA tournament, Overton will play.

I'm not sure if I want AZ (pending a major upset against the Beavers) or SC to win tomorrow...

An AZ loss tomorrow to SC means that USC is that much closer to taking a spot in the NCAA tourney, which could lead to UW being forced out.

However, if SC wins, then I'd feel much better about UW taking on the Trojans in a later round.

Isaiah Thomas is foregoing his senior year and entering the NBA Draft.


Washington junior guard Isaiah Thomas plans to enter the NBA draft, but will not hire an agent.

In a statement from the school, Thomas said, "Although it was a tough decision, I have decided to forego my senior season and enter my name into this year's NBA draft. At this time I will not hire an agent.

"Over the past three years I've enjoyed every single minute of my Washington Husky career. I am very thankful to have played for a great coach like coach (Lorenzo) Romar and our entire coaching staff. I have just over two quarters left to earn my degree, and I fully plan on finishing school."

For the past two weeks, Romar had been supportive of Thomas exploring his options and testing the NBA draft waters.

"Isaiah Thomas has had an unbelievable impact on our program during his time with us," Romar said in the news release from the school. "We will definitely miss him, but we are behind him in his quest to fulfill a lifelong dream to play in the NBA."

He should have stayed. He's got alot of NBA guys in his camp, Jason Terry, Gary Payton, Jamal Crawford, Brandon Roy. They probably helped him out alot with this decision.

Next year will be interesting. Gaddy needs to come back 100% from his knee injury and show people that he was worth the #2 PG ranking he got coming out of high school. Aziz needs to develop an offensive game, Gant needs to do the same thing he did last offseason. I have a feeling Ross is going to breakout next year. Look for Wilcox to be more involved next year.

Malcom Armstead intends on transferring, which isn't surprising. We knew for a while that somebody had to be on the way out since the addition of Carlos Emory to our recruiting class. Though Jon Loyd wasn't fantastic this season, I expect a solid jump from him, and the addition of Bruce Barron makes our depth at the point not too bad. Plus, Devoe Joseph has the capability of swinging to the point and playing a combo-guard role, we actually are better off now with him gone. Armstead got a lot of steals, but sometimes "checked out" and wasn't with the program, good luck to him though..

BradyIsTheMan12
04-15-2011, 01:47 PM
So Armstead plans on transferring(came out a week ago), and Seiferth and Teondre Williams are rumored to be gone(not substantiated yet). I'm fine with it since it gives Altman more flexibility to get his own guys in, and Armstead had problems with staying engaged at times..

We also officially added Carlos Emory this week to our class. He was a JUCO All-American who had been receiving a lot of attention of late. Emory had an outstanding season last year while playing 20 pounds underweight due to an illness, can't imagine how good he can be when at full strength. He's about 6 foot 7 240 pounds(at full strength), and has a terrific inside/outside game. He can probably play the 3 or the 4 for us, and could start right away.

Burks' decision comes today

Will he or won't he? Colorado and 6-foot-6 shooting guard Alec Burks have scheduled a media-only news conference for 2 p.m. today in Boulder for the Buffaloes standout to announce whether he will declare for the 2011 NBA draft or return for his junior season.

Burks said recently that he will give up his final two years of college eligibility if he receives an indication that he would be one of the first 15 players selected in the draft. NBA analysts and mock drafts project him to be picked earlier than No. 15.

"He's not telling us what he's thinking," departing senior guard Levi Knutson said Wednesday. "But he obviously has a lot to think about. There are benefits to both options. I know he has had a lot of fun playing college basketball the last couple of years. That's not an easy thing to give up. He has to do what's best for him and his family."

A native of the Kansas City, Mo., area, Burks earned unanimous all-Big 12 Conference honors after leading the league in scoring (averaging 20.5 points for all games) and ranking 12th in rebounding (6.5) and 14th in assists (2.95).

So who takes it?

Arizona and UCLA have already taken a loss (AZ lost to SPU in an exhibition game). Of course I'll toss around UW as a potential Pac-12 champ.

Gaddy is back healthy and his shot is greatly improved. Terrance Ross is a FREAK, during the UW SPU game the announcers said he could be a lottery pick this upcoming year. Not to mention CJ Wilcox, that man can shoot all day long. Tony Wroten is a true freshman who is showing he has what it takes to run the point when Gaddy needs a spell.

UW's weak spot will be having a post presence. Aziz is an intimidating force on defense, but he is far from a play-maker on offense.

Oregon beat Eastern Washington tonight. We clearly have a ways to go in-terms of chemistry, but the talent is there to make some noise in the Pac-12. With UCLA falling apart, we may even finish 4th in the conference.

As for who will win the Pac-12, my guess is Cal. They have a lot of guys returning from last season, and are the most complete team. Plus, Montgomery is a great coach obviously.

Wow, Bruce Barron just left the program as well. That might be why we looked so flat tonight against UTEP, but damn that is weird. Altman and the rest of the staff will need to adjust their evaluation of PSA's, because this should not occur. Thank goodness we have Devoe Joseph eligible soon, because we sure need a two-guard.

As for the game itself, it wasn't pretty but we got it done. Loyd shot the lights out from deep, and did create a lot of offense. Our rebounding was a joke, we gave a bad UTEP team way too many second chances. Olu had some monster dunks that got Matt Knight Arena rocking, but he sure needs to work on his boxing out. It is a work in progress, but we still have talent. Altman will get our guys focused, and hopefully we are ready for BYU in SLC. BYU is not as good as last season, but that will still be a challenge of a game considering where it is at, and how we played tonight...

UW shot themselves in the foot throughout the first half vs Duke. Too bad Aziz went down with his knee injury, definitely missed his rebounding and shot-blocking ability. Still fail to see how Aziz didn't get an and one called on his dunk (where he got hurt), especially when you compare it to a few minutes later where they called a foul on Simmons considering he clearly didn't touch whoever made the two.

Still saw a lot of positives from this game. Wroten showed he can shine under the lights and on the biggest of stages. Wilcox has truly become a threat to take it to the hoop. Ross started slow, but picked it up at the end. Gaddy needs to start putting in 12-15 ppg though.

So is the prevailing consensus that Cal will win the Pac-12? Or do you all think Stanford or Washington will win it? The Pac-12 is a very difficult conference to gauge at this point, so many teams have "green" teams that may look much different now than in conference play. Even though it isn't a great conference, the race should be highly competitive at least.

Yeah, it is pretty much impossible to gauge. Stanford has looked good in non-conference so they could be a factor, but Cal and Washington are the more established teams. It really could go a number of directions, but I'm guessing one of those three teams wins it.

Hopefully Oregon just makes the NIT...lol

Freshman guard Jabari Brown, a top recruit who abruptly left Oregon after starting the first two games of the 2011-12 season, committed to transfer to Missouri on Monday, according to his mother, Fannie.

Brown was averaging 6.0 points and 5.5 turnovers before he departed Oregon. Brown was the nation's seventh-ranked shooting guard in the class of 2011 and was the centerpiece of Ducks coach Dana Altman's recruiting class.

Fannie Brown cited "a good fit" with Missouri's system and Tigers coach Frank Haith while declining to elaborate on her son's departure from Oregon.

"I'll just say it was a tough decision to leave when you know these young men will be raked over the coals when people don't have any idea what's going on," she said.

"We thank Coach Altman and his staff for what they did for Jabari. It was a decision he made, and we will always support our boy."

If Brown enrolls immediately, he could be eligible to join the Tigers as soon as next December under the NCAA's transfer laws.

Missouri will also add transfer guards Keion Bell and Earnest Ross to start next season.
http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/7370169/mom-says-jabari-brown-formerly-oregon-ducks-transferring-missouri-tigers

Eh, oh well. If Jabari was willing to leave after two games then this never had much of a chance of working out. It put us in a terrible position beyond this season since we weren't planning on taking a 2 in this coming class, but we'll find a way to make it work. As for this season, Devoe Joseph is better right now anyways so all it does it dampen out depth. This loss does sting though, no denying that.

Boozerguy47: That sounds just like Ernie Kent. Though I would definitely take Romar over Kent, their strengths and weaknesses are pretty similar. Both recruit well but struggle with adjustments and X's and O's. Both need strong leadership from the point guard position to succeed, otherwise the team just looks lost. The main reason why Romar is still a billion times better as a coach is because Kent had way too many unbalanced classes which caused us to get too young, and to struggle mightily for the first two years of those classes.

12-20-2011, 04:28 AM
^ Yeah, I just don't get it. Why as a coach would you enjoy watching your team play one-on-one all day?

Amen. It's brutal to watch your team play one-on-one ball, and just hope that your star player finds an opening. Even on Kent's best teams, we would pass the ball around the perimeter until the shot-clock started to dwindle, and then great players like Brooks and Ridnour would either drive and score or kick out to the perimeter, but it still drove me nuts. When players like Tajuan Porter and a pre-Senior season Brooks were manning the point, it got ugly.

Kent's definition of coaching was screaming, "Move, move, move!" every time, it got kind of sad by the end of his run. I'd also like to say that I realize that Ernie Kent did a lot for Oregon basketball, but he did have some serious flaws with his teams being undisciplined and needing an elite point guard to win. Oh well though, I think we have a good one in Coach Altman. It will take time to get where I'd like us to be, but at least he is a coach who definitely knows his X's and O's.

The first half of our game versus NCCU was dreadful. We shot around 20% from the field, and Knight Arena was just flat as hell. Thankfully we started to make some defensive plays in the second half which opened our transition game and jump-started our offense. Dana Altman needs to find a rotation that he is comfortable with, and a better way to execute in the half court, because this isn't cutting it. I did hear that NCCU only lost by five on the road against NC State, so that makes this 58-45 win feel a little bit better. It is a great thing that we have 2 games in the next 2 days as well, we need to sharpen up quickly before Pac-12 play begins..

Great win against Washington State on the road, this is the first time we have put it all together this season.

We likely will lose to Washington, but I feel confident that we can keep it competitive.

Washington is just a much more talented team than Oregon. Our defense was pretty pathetic and when you do that against players like Wroten then they'll burn you. We also didn't show enough respect for Wilcox's outside game, and he also burned us badly. Of course Devoe Joseph was a non-factor and we had difficulty scoring in the paint consistently, just an overall disjointed game on both ends of the floor.

We'll get better and gain more chemistry, but it is going to take time..

I fail to see why UW has so many losses this season already. In the PAC-12 I doubt there is a team with more talent and better athletes. Wroten and Ross are as nasty as they come.

I'll have to watch the game tomorrow, hopefully there is a replay somewhere...

I have not watched any Buff games, but beating Washington is a nice win. Washington has been rather up and down this season, so we'll see what happens with them.

Oregon plays Cal on Sunday, and that will be an opportunity to find out what this team is made of. If we play them tight or even win at home, then we have a great shot at finishing in the top 3 or 4 in the Pac-12. Unless we drastically sharpen up our defense, then we will have to depend on Devoe Joseph and the offense being lightning most of the time. Coach Altman will make sure this team is better by the end of the year, but we have to pick up these early games so that we are a factor late in the season with regards to conference positioning, last year we peaked far too late..

I'm loving the ball movement right now, and am surprised with how well we are rebounding. Altman is finding ways to get Olu the ball without asking him to do too much, which is big for us since we generally struggle with finding points in the paint. Olu has terrible hands, but when he gets the ball with space in front of him, then he will pave a road to the bucket.

Also, Devoe Joseph is just awesome.

UW will probably start to peak and might even be the best team in the Pac-12 by season's end. The problem is that the Pac-12 is looked at as a mid-major conference right now, so tourney bids will be hard to come by. Unless UW finishes in the top two of the conference(which they could), or wins the P-12 Tourney they won't be going to the Big Dance.

Even though Oregon is exceeding my wildest expectations, I'm still worried that we will be right on the outside of the Big Dance unless we close strong. Too bad the Pac-12 didn't do better in non-conference play, because it is really hurting us. If Oregon had beaten either Vandy or Virginia then I'd be much more confident...

Buffs win another home game at the CEC though the game went to the wire. Arizona had a chance to win the game but they threw up an air ball and we prevailed. CU couldn't hit any FTs to save their life and didn't get many calls from the refs (though they were awful on both sides, there were some egregious calls that pissed me off) they still were able to pull this one out. Real test will be when we travel to Arizona, but that's down the road.

Amazing crowd today, complete sellout. Student section was rocking and I haven't seen the crowd look this fired since last season. This team has wildly exceeded my expectations (and whoever predicted we'd finish 11th in the Pac-12 lol) and I'm excited about our future. If CU can prove it can win on the road (road trip to Cali next week, USC and UCLA) we'll be dancing in March. Because I don't see anybody beating us at the CEC (Wyoming never happened, I'm convinced of it ;) )

So I paid for the PPV for the USC/Colorado game, and they said it would be live, but they "pulled" the feed and said that it would be available as an archived game.

Huge game tomorrow for the Ducks, if we win it would give me more hope that we are contenders and not pretenders. Oregon State has a poor conference record, but they do have considerable talent, so this will be tough. Obviously beating the Ducks is going to have them hyped up since they don't have much else to play for, so hopefully we put together 40 minutes of good basketball. It will be close (might sell out even) to sold out at Matt Knight Arena, so this might be the loudest our arena gets this season.

We own the Civil War, let's keep it that way!

I didn't think it was bad, it was clearly a foul and I have the belief that the refs should call it the same for the entire game. That is a foul in the 1st half, it should always be called a foul no matter the situation.

Though I agree about the refs, they were awful.

It was all-ball, so I don't know what you are talking about.

As for the refs, the first half they gave too many bad calls against Colorado but in the second half they rail-roaded the Ducks with pitiful calls. Neither team could play physical in the paint, and you could barely even touch an offensive player. Pac-12 refs have to be the worst in the nation in both football and basketball.

Last point, I know Oregon had their opportunities and blew them. So, I'm not putting this all on the refs even though that last call and many other calls were horrendous.

The block was all ball, but he was fouled before then and since we were in the bonus he got FTs. There is a reason why there was a second on the clock, he was fouled clearly before he shot it.

If you base it on the way the whole game was called, that's a foul. Oregen got at least a dozen foul calls on little BS ticky tack calls that put our best players (Roberson) in foul trouble. If the refs are consistant throughout the game, then that's clearly a foul.

You seem to have selective memory. When Oregon was down by two near the end and Ashaolu put up a shot he was barely touched and he got the call and went to the FT line for the and one. You guys probably would have won if he knew how to shoot free throws. If that was a foul then the foul on Nate was too. You have to be consistant. Either you call the entire game tight, or you don't. That would have been a foul in the 1st half, and it should be a foul in the 2nd half.

It's funny how you're complaining about the refs when CU got the short end of the stick for most of the night. I've never seen a worse officiated 1st half in person before, that was brutal. They got better in the 2nd, but there were some **** calls for us in the 2nd too.

Also I doubt you care but CU women's basketball played Oregon last night and lost by 5, but we shot 5 FTs while your team shot 32 FTs. Now that's some **** reffing right there.

And the fouls got horrendous again in the last 5 or so minutes. There were about 6-7 possessions in a row for Oregon where they seemed to get a foul call every damn time no matter what. It was a joke

Oh please, I even said that Colorado got screwed over by fouls in the first half. Read my earlier post, it's there!

The first half was a disaster of a game in favor of Oregon, and the second half was a disaster in favor of Colorado. How is that being selective, if anyone is being selective you are. The difference between your point of view and mine is that I'm saying that the entire game was called terrible, and you are saying the game was called terrible but it was consistently terrible so its okay. Great logic...

Edit: Let's just move on from this and agree to disagree. Congrats on the win.

BradyIsTheMan12
02-07-2012, 02:48 AM
At this point Oregon has three paths moving forward. We finish the season strong and have a nice showing at the Pac-12 Tournament and then get an NIT bid. This would be a big step for our program, and unfortunately just doing this will not result in an NCAA Tournament bid since the Pac-12 is viewed as terrible.

The second path is to have a mediocre finish to the season and a one-and-done Pac-12 Tournament showing and then no post-season. I'm not sure if we would be willing to pay for another CBI Tournament bid, it probably would not be worth it since we have a lot of older players.

Finally, we could get hot and win the Pac-12 Tournament. This is not something I expect, but it could happen if things pan out. If we somehow get into the NCAA Tournament then that would be a huge step in the right direction, it is unfortunate that we lost to the Beavers and Buffaloes since it pretty much KO'ed our at-large hopes.

It all starts this Thursday against Washington, and we need to get the sweep this weekend. Our home crowd is going to have to be big, and I'm sure we will be loud for the hated Huskies.

Lastly, Dominic Artis talked about his commitment and is incredibly excited to be a Duck. He said that he wants to help turn around the Oregon Ducks basketball program, which has to get any Duck fan excited. Artis has been playing phenomenally recently, and he said he is up to 6 foot 1 and about 175 pounds, and it looks like he might still be growing. Artis also said that he wants to accompany Anthony Bennett when he takes his official visit in the Spring. It is probably a long shot that we get Bennett, but Artis is in his ear and getting an official visit from an elite player like Bennett is all we can ask for at this point. I'm sure Bennett will be blown away by Matt Knight Arena, and playing with his friend in college has to be appealing, but beating out Kentucky among other college basketball heavyweights is a tall-order.

Go Ducks!

The Beavers have a lot of similarities to the Oregon basketball team the year before 2007. We were competitive in a lot of games, but lost almost every coin flip game against competitive teams that season. Will the Beavers take the quantum leap that we did en route to an Elite Eight appearance? I doubt it, but I could see them making the Big Dance next season.

Well, we now have quite the big game on Thursday Night versus Cal. If we win this game, then our resume for a potential NCAA berth at least holds some water, and I certainly didn't think we would be in this position a week ago. Ideally, we would sweep the Bay Area trip but that really is not reasonable. We just snapped our massive losing streak at Maples last season, and the trip in general has been a disaster over the past 25 seasons. Hoping for the best though, and Altman will have us ready to compete.

I don't understand why Arizona is in but we are both on the edge. Arizona has a worse RPI(unless I saw wrong), and we both have better conference records(we are tied with them but have the tiebreaker). Something isn't right with that projection.

I looked up Arizona's resume, and the only thing they have over our teams is one win versus a top 50 opponent(Cal on the road). Otherwise, both Washington and Oregon have significantly better SOS, and have fared better in Pac-12 play. Should that one win be the ultimate decider? Hell no in my opinion.

At this point, I would have Cal - Washington - Oregon(I like Colorado, but they need to beat Oregon at MKA to dispel the notion that they suck on the road. If they beat us, then sub them in) as the three tournament teams. Cal and Washington should be locks if they finish decently, but apparently Arizona is getting the advantage at the moment over Washington..

That's probably the best chance for Colorado getting in besides winning the Pac-12 tournament. Hopefully bubble teams from other conferences don't bolster their resumes too much, because that would significantly hurt the Pac-12's chances at getting even three teams in the tourney.

Stanford matches up with us very well, and the Buffs played the worst I've seen in a while. You aren't going to win many games shooting 29 percent from the field. :facepalm:

The Arizona grey jerseys they are wearing remind me alot of the WSU grey jerseys.

Hopefully you guys rebound and beat Cal.

These are the kind of Refs i like letting them actually play and get physical in this UCLA vs Arizona game.

Beat WSU but what a poor performance the Seattle Times got that right it was a miracle down double digits with 13Mins to go and we some how find a way to win.

CU bounces back with a convincing 13 point win against Cal. Still can't believe we lost to Stanford. They seemed like 2 different teams from Thursday to Sunday. On to Oregon!

Just got back from Corvallis, what a game! We had to have that one, and we found a way like so many other games this season. I really think that we will win our final home games, but we'll see.

^Bet you were on the edge of your seat during the 1st half that was some bad shooting lol.

I don't understand why Sean Miller was in the announcers top 3 to be considered for Coach of the year it should go to Altman or Boyle there doing it with less talent Colorado wasn't even supposed to be in the top 4 they were picked to be 10th.

I was definitely upset with that, especially since Cunningham had been out of the game due to fouls and we had failed to gain a significant lead. Oregon's biggest problem is offensive stagnation, and that is due to not having a true point guard on the roster. Our guards often fail to get the ball inside to capable cutters and big men, so we rely heavily on three pointers and driving the ball inside. Hopefully Dominic Artis can become that true point guard for us in the future, he looks like a stud.

As for coach of the year, I agree completely. Miller has much more talent on his roster than Altman or Boyle, and Arizona hasn't been incredibly impressive(considering their talent level). Since I'm a homer, I'd say that Altman should get the nod. Losing Jabari Brown and Bruce Barron after two games could have been crippling, but we have not folded. Plus, many of our key contributors are first year players and Altman has truly maximized the talent on this roster.

I would have no objections with Tad Boyle getting it though, he has done a great job at Colorado.

I'd rage if Boyle doesn't win it. He's done the most with less.

You would rage if Boyle doesn't win it? I could understand being upset if Boyle doesn't get it, but Altman definitely deserves consideration. Putting together a roster full of transfers and losing a top 15 national recruit after two games and still being competitive is very impressive...

Regardless, I still expect Boyle to win...

Big story about UCLA in this week's SI if you guys are interested.

Heres the web link: click (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/magazine/02/28/ucla/index.html?eref=sihp&sct=hp_t11_a1)

Slings a lot of dirt on the behind the scene issues with UCLA. Really eye opening, to say the least.

Ben Howland is a tool Reeves Nelson is attacking players on the team on purpose and he got away with it for so long.

I know a coach can't follow a player around 24/7 but this stuff was going on in practice.

Boyle doesn't have a single 4 star prospect on his roster... yet he's on his way to another 20 win season. He also lost one of our big men (Cain) and lost around 80 percent of his scoring from last season. Altman has done a hell of a job, but Boyle is much more deserving.

This team needs to stop falling asleep and just keep the scoring up almost let the Trojans back in this letting them cut a 16 point lead back to 10.

My point had more to do with the degree of your belief in who should win, not that Boyle wasn't deserving of it.

You also have to remember that Ernie Kent left the Ducks basketball program in a lot more **** than Bzdelik left the Buffaloes. The roster turnover has been truly astounding since Altman has gotten here. The only players that are left from the Ernie Kent era are Garrett Sim and EJ Singler, and when teams have that type of turnover they usually lose at least 15 games. Granted, Altman is in his second season, but that is still pretty significant. Bringing in a bevy of transfers from JUCO ranks and other colleges is a very challenging task, and Altman has fit it all together. I don't have a problem with Boyle winning it, but this is a much more engaging discussion than you are willing to admit..

Anyways, what a game by Devoe tonight. Everyone in the stands knew that if we lost this game that we could kiss a potential tourney bid goodbye, and man did he deliver. Altman and the coaching staff made the necessary halftime adjustments to right the ship, and this is something I hardly ever saw from Ernie Kent teams. I don't know where this season ends up, but it has been a fun ride.

Edit: I forgot about Jeremy Jacob, he was also from the Kent era. Sim/Singler/Jacob were not highly touted players when they came to Oregon as well.

The 4 coaches that i would be fine with winning COY are:

1.Boyles
2.Altman
3.Montgomery
4.Romar

There in no particular order but the top 2 probably are the most likely to win it.
