Upcoming Season per the Trib

Post by wrv on Tue Aug 12, 2008 1:50 pm

We could be hurting a little come playoff time. I assume there exists no possibility that Michelle, or Keelin or Ellie will return once they depart, even if we go deep into the playoffs without them? Hmmn?

Well, on a positive note, Michelle will be playing this year, not redshirting. I suppose Garrett left the door open a little for the others redshirting. My hope is that by the time those 3 leave for the U-20 WC, we will have had significant time to get the freshman experienced enough to handle the playoffs. And also that having a healthy Michelle, and a healthy Megan can put us in a good enough position to have a favorable draw in the tourney.

Did you notice VICTORIA NGUYEN called the Oregon game a preseason? Thats what the NSCAA scoreboard still calls it, too.
I'm still not clear that it will count in the RPI.

Interesting, why would it be treated any different than others? Is there some limitation of what date the first official game can be scheduled?

Mmm... our official site has it listed as a regular game. I think the Trib writer is using "pre-season" as kind of a catch-all term that denotes "non-conference". I didn't take it to mean "exhibition".

Here it is on the official site:

As opposed to the basketball schedule, which clearly indicates an exhibition.

Do you have a link to the NSCAA scoreboard?

The season starts 11 weeks before the tournament , during which you can play 20 regular season games. This meets both criteria.

I'm not sure what the deal is...

The NSCAA link is Here


reading further in the article, there is this quote:

With less than three weeks until the season opener, Smith says a win over UCLA is important – but not vital – to the team’s postseason success.

sure sounds like she thinks UofO doesn't count.

Touche, Geezer. Good catch.

But looking at UO's website, they have it listed as a regular season game too:

At this point (pardon the pun) if it looks like a duck, talks like a duck... pretty sure this it's the regular season opener.

Stonehouse the pun master!!

By the way, if memory serves me correctly, Kyle Stonehouse is white. Your picture looks more like Pooh Jeter.

Isn't it amazing how the posting volume increases exponentially this time of year. It would seem that Pilot Fans, like bears hibernate for the winter... Purple Geezer is more like the Yeti of Pilot Fans!

Of course Kyle Stonehouse was white. He is/was the Great White Hope of Pilot Basketball. Well, he and Luke Palumbus. I mean... my boy Stonehouse has to own the UP (and maybe even the WCC) record for most fouls per minute. Even more than Zach Gourde. (Remember Gourde's stat line that one game? Was it 5 fouls in three minutes? That was Stonehouse-esque for sure.)

I guess I probably should change my pic at some point...

Probably not... Embarassed

I've learned over the years NEVER to count my chickens, ever, for anything, anyone, any time, any how. Been burned so many times none of the local hospitals will even allow me in their ER's because they know the bill just somehow ain't gonna get paid.
