    If Hamblin was able to get out of her own head after the Pac-12 tournament, I think the team can go Elite 8 or beyond

    Go BWBs! (not BBWs… although they are kind of BBWs, just not in “that” sense)

    After reading this, it’s become clear to me that anybody down on the “Lady Beav” nickname must be a minnion of Phil Knight and Nike/Oregon. Long live the Lady Beavs!

      Dammit, I should have trademarked Beavs With Beavs before posting it here! There goes my meal ticket

      I didn’t think it possible, but my hate for the swooshmaster grows with every story like this.

      Especially strange that the WBB team is the only one allowed to keep the Lady Vol nickname.
      Long live LadyBeavs indeed!!

      And, congrats to scotty on his date last night. Suggestion: avoid the BWB comments till the 4th date, just my .02.

      Huh?

      How did you not come up with the idea that anyone down on that nickname must be an evangelical minister? That’s just as big a stretch as the one you invent.

      The article isn’t clear. It says it will take effect July 1. It also says Nike will take over on that date. But it also says the push to make the athletic department “one” unit started three years ago. So is the July 1 date just coincidence?

      Lady Beavs is just a stupid name. It’s neither traditional nor official as it is/was in Appalachia. If you’re trying to be funny, then the absurd is one way to go… I guess.

    My book highly favors the U Conn huskies to win it all: $475 wager to win $100, the field is +325!

    Go Beavs!

    Spent all day at the Rose Garden, great college atmosphere. All the games, except the UA beat down, were entertaining. Tourney well run…I hope WT had some of the returning players in attendance. It would be a great motivator as to possibilities.

    Back tomorrow, expect Arizona and Georgetown to advance.

    For those of you in the PDX area, there were and still are lots of seats available. Scalpers all over the entrances, can’t imagine they’re getting face value. JB

      Walked down from work for session 2 and we scored seats in the first row of the 200 level for less than half of face value. Happens every time they play games here, as long as the teams aren’t local.

      Place started to fill in after half-time of the Utah game, but the 300 level was way less than 50% full. I’m guessing Saturday will be a little different since it’s not a work day, but I highly recommend going if you have the time.

        FYI, no alcohol is served on site during the games, so get your fill before going and maybe take a little something in your pocket to freshen up between game 1 and 2. 2 games back to back can be a long event (can’t imagine going to both sessions in 1 day like you PBH)

            I like Beavblazer’s idea better. Add a little rum to a $7 Coke. Something about paying $10 for a Bud Light is just wrong. Not to mention the whizz factor. JB

            My office is only a few blocks from the Moda Center. I always enjoy the days when the tournament is in town because this area gets flooded with all sorts of people from all over the country. For the most part, the fans are all pretty cool too and the jackasses are few and far between.

    Wrestling update:

    Latham finally drops one 5-2. Has to wait for the wrestlebacks to get another opponent and another chance at being an AA.

    Meeks did not come to play today… trades take downs for escapes early… just never defended low… loses 14-5.

    Thanks to Jack for the wrestling updates. Hey ol’ buddy…while your’e at it could you please update us on the National Quilting Bee Championship?

    Rumor is that Thelma McGee might be losing to Harriet Anderson in the 80+ free stitch division.

        Nike stock hit an all time high today of nearly 104/share. Gross.

          Gross indeed.
          Years ago, while doing some contract work for Nike, I shorted their stock. From the disorganized way they ran production I was convinced they couldn’t sustain the existing stock price. As I watched the stock continue to rise I kept shaking my head. How could the marketplace not see what I saw.
          Finally the entire market crashed and I was able to get out with a slight gain.

          I still have no respect for their way of doing business, but they sure can market. Somewhat similar to Tektronix whose technological expertise masked, for a long time, their lax manufacturing methods.

            Hopefully you used options. Shorting outright is terrifying.

            If you look at the Nike chart, it’s getting close to parabolic.

            There are so many good shorts lining up. It’s just a matter of timing, as it always is with shorting. I have a list of 30 companies I want to short, but I haven’t pulled the trigger on any yet, because the stock market is still wildly delusional, and our central bank is about to destroy the dollar again (we can’t run this speculative/debt based economy with a 97 USD index).

      I really don’t see them making it very far (or potentially past this game) with these continual slow starts. This should have been fixed weeks ago.

        I don’t know how you fix a slow start in basketball. “Make more shots earlier!”?

    Just looked at the NCAA Women’s bracket. There’s potential for a championship game featuring the LadyBeavs and the LadyCocks. Although, after watching the first couple minutes of this game, it appears the the SDSU LadyRabbits aren’t going to go down easy.

    Lose the lead at the half. I’d say the lady beavs D is pretty bad (too much space, especially in the lane). These Jackrabbits are making some tough shots, and the refs have been atrocious.
