basketball tonight

Post by Geezaldinho on Tue Mar 03, 2009 6:34 pm

I thought I'd watch the Zag- Carolina upstate game tonight just to get primed up for the Tournament. The Zags were beating CU 27-7 which was ok with me, but then I made the mistake of listening to the announcers.

Oh God!

Few should have been COY Bouldin was clearly player of the year, 10 zags should have been on the first team.

I thought I'd puke. the game was unwatchable.

Who the hell are these guys?

Is it on FSN? Than it's Greg Heister and Craig Ehlo, who are paid to be Zag homers. So... not surprising. They make watching the Zag games pretty unbearable. Heister is borderline OK, but Ehlo... Ehlo is just pure pain to listen to.

Geezer, I was doing the same thing... I had to change the channel after Ehlo started talking about that. At least Heister stated he agreed with Rev getting COY.

But I cant stand Heister & Ehlo... I cant believe they keep getting hired back every year! Even many of the GU folks cant stand them...

Those guys are disgusting.

Look, I understand Homer. I listened to Ralph Kiner and the 1962 Mets games (40-120)

but this was just... I had to turn it off.

That doe sound like just a nauseating broadcast. I'd love to see Ehlo get an identity crisis by having to broadcast a WSU vs. Gonzaga rivalry. He wouldn't know whether to privately root for his alma mater or the team that he's paid to hype up (Gonzaga), and he'd end up fainting onto the floor in an inebriated state of ecstacy. Puke.

I have no idea how anyone can find Ehlo even moderately tolerable... Haha I guess he lives in a Spokane and they can't get anyone with a better resume to regularly fly out here and cover the games... And lord knows John "hermit" Stockton woudln't do anything like that Razz

I figured out a great way to watch this completely pointless game... The mute button silent silent silent

I'll know somewhere on the other side of that silence is some jerk saying:

Ehlo literally just compared Ira Brown's game to that of "Dr. J"... Rolling Eyes

And we won't have to listen to them for a year, they have to go back to their hobbit holes in Spokane and prepare new ways to kiss Mark Few's @ss next year... That is unless of course Few ends up in Eugene or Tucson next year....

The difference is they are talking about Mike scoring 69 points and not Ira Brown.

And Ehlo ain't.... well he just ain't.

How anyone could think that Bouldin should have been POY over John Bryant... well, they would have to be Gonzaga fans.

Bouldin isn't even the 2nd best player on Gonzaga's team.

After the game the in-studio team back in Seattle discussed just that. The lead in was the Zags got robbed across the board from the "anchor" Angie "I miss being able to flirt with Brett Boone" Metnik... Thank god the actual analyst said (and I paraphrase)... "Bryant was absolutely dominant 5 20-20 games, leads the country in rebounding etc." and as for the 1st team, "The Zags run a pretty balanced offense, so it's hard to really pick a stand out"

Fair enough... But also a cop out, give me 15 mins on kenpom or god forbid ESPN and I could have figured that out... But i digress... At least K. Calabro and L. Wilkens actually know a thing or two about the game of basketball, making the UW game moderately watchable

What kind of idiot what pick Matt Bouldin as WCC POY? How about some guy named Eric Reveno?

http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/sportslink/2009/feb/18/bouldin-line-wcc-player-year/

How about former NBA coach Eric Musselman?

See vlad, that's where Zag fans always get confused.

Rev was being nice to a Spokane staff writer (same as a Zag staff writer.)

Rather than tell the poor guy Bouldin is a poor second to Bryant's individual results this year, he tells the guy what he wants to hear and says that Bouldin is the obvious choice.


He didn't say he was the right choice. That came out in the vote....



And Musselman was wrong a pretty big chunk of the All Conference team, so I wouldn't bring him up as an expert on the WCC.

Because a columnist from Spokane is going to have a completely objective opinion of the WCC awards . . . on February 18, no less. I'm further amused that someone - anyone - found Eric Musselman's thoughts useful.

(Shakes head)

Here's an interesting opinion about Few's coaching that rates him right up there with Krzyzewski (though not in the way Zag fans would hope, I think):

As long as we are quoting WCC coaches in the Zag Rag, here's some more of Meehan's work.

“Matt was probably our most consistent player all year and Josh has really played well down the stretch,” Few said. “I’m glad they got the recognition they deserve.”

They got the recognition they deserve.

Case closed.

After reading the entirety of Meehan's article, I thought he said MORE about Bryant than Bouldin...

"“Santa Clara could put itself toward the top (of the standings) and you’d have to consider John based on is numbers,” Reveno said. “But it makes sense that it goes to a team at the top of the conference.”"

AND

"“If you look at defensive rebounds and blocked shots, you have to look at John,” Reveno said. “And you have to consider Diamon, too.”"

For me, the date of the article says it all... Feb 18, which was not long after Bouldin really torched the Pilots and was playing super well. At that point in time, I agree that Bouldin was probably deserving of the POY award. But for the rest of the WCC season (at least 4-5 games from that date), Heytvelt was the one that was playing best, Bouldin was just so-so, Daye fell off the map, and Bryant was throwing down 20-20s and got Santa Clara into 4th place. So... yeah. I think if any of the Zag players would have been a bit more dominant/consistent they would have won the award. I mean, look at last year - Pargo got it over Bryant. But this year's Zag team was so balanced that it was difficult to say who was the most valuable on the team, let alone the best player in the conference. And when you've got a guy in John Bryant who leads the nation in rebounding and is dropping 20 points a game and leading the conference in blocked shots and field goal percentage and who probably deserved to win the award last year? It's not surprising at all that Bryant got it, and I for one think he well deserved it.

Post by MesaPilot1 on Wed Mar 04, 2009 1:21 pm

A guy lead's the nation in Rebounding and yet Zaggetes don't think he deserve's and award for his 20 and 20's. What kind of idiot thinks that him playing with 3 freshman (some talented , others?) make's a 4th place finish a "bad season" is a clown . Absoulutely no objectivy and sour grapes.

I'm waiting for when it's declared Heidifelty can dominate Blake Griffin .Pargo anybody. Or Bouldin can dominate Jame's Hardin. We all saw what happened in AZ,faced with a little adversity,no home court, Pac'ten team the Zaggete's folded their tent's when it got tough going with pew getting outcoached severly by a "temporary" coach.They want to play the Huskie's,ha,ha good joke. Maybe if they start beating the other Pac'Ten teams that are behind them in the conference standing's,ha,ha.

Prediction-Loss in 2nd round of NCAA's Twisted Evil (Bringing our RPI down) ,that's if their private plane doesn't make a permenant stop in Spokane after the first round.

I predict a Creepy Adam Morrison year, we ought to start a poll, who's gonna cry Crying or Very sad this year after they lose in the NCAA's

Pargo
Heidifelty Down's (my bet,troubled kid with a odd background...transfer,family issue's,etc==always seems manic or bummed after play=sketchy stability during game.
Daye-obvious odd's on favorite
Bouldin-about the only one who seem's cogent and stable beside's Pargo (I honestly feel bad for Pargo this year Embarassed he just lost a couple of million's dollar's by listening to the wrong people,,,one of which was Peeyew...etc.

They should just shut their Piehole's early in the NCAA's so they can finally get back to playing well. With that kinda talent, Im perplexed scratch ,that pew is a really awful coach or an underachiever when you look at the talent etc he's had over the years. Maybe the'll get Monson back,then ?


PS- Anybody remember Bouldin's UNBEATEN season prediction this yr. Maybe he just mean't in conference play Wink . I bet pew tell's him to keep his yapper shut during NCAA press conference's.

Mesa...way to keep it classy. Ya the zag fans feel like their player(s) deserved POY, as does saint mary's feel their player(s) had a chance, and the pilot fans have a legit argument that Nic could have won. If you have recently read the gonzaga board, there is a huge post congratulating Big John on his accomplishments. John deserved the award, he had a great year and well deserved to be Player of the Year. What I don't understand is your hatred for the zags and lack of respect towards a team that beat you twice. We completely respect the pilots, you have a great team, a great chance in the tourney, and we'll be a force next year, your team's rise is great for the WCC. You discuss how the zags losses were due to poor coaching and other factors, whats your point? Who cares, are you jealous with the zags success? I will gladly discuss the zag losses compared with the pilot losses any day of the week.

To all the other pilot fans...we want to congratulate you on a great regular season and looking forward to a great conference tourney...you guys have one helluva team this year and for the most part are a total class act. Good luck in the tourney this coming weekend and we hope to see you monday night.

There are so many things in that post that I could comment on, but I'll choose just one:

What I don't understand is your hatred for the zags and lack of respect towards a team that beat you twice.

Really? I mean, really?

Thanks,

Glad to see you and Angela our reading Pilot Nation. Sorry to hurt your feeling's. Sometime's I hurt people's feeling's,but it doesn't Seem like All the Zag fan's who live in Portland or the State of Washington or Oregon get their feeling's hurt. You'll feel better just have a microbeer that Portland has to offer. Most Zag fan's don't get upset here on PN because they know most of it is in good fun.'
Why don't you head on over to the Don's board or down south to Lion Nation they may not have a good welcome to you either. I doubt you'll be able to run your keyboard to far when you match Crybaby in the same Planet of Hank or Bill Russell. JMO though.

NOW, get back to the Zaggete board and "Homer" my favorite WCC Player of All time (yes ahead of Hank) Batista for me. My observation's about Daye and Down's our just personal opinion's, not fact like a personal friend of their's,like yourself.


Love,


Monster Pilot1 afro aka MesaPilot1 jocolor


P.S. -Are not Down's life problems a known fact in Spokane? I've only been following since his Junior year in H.S. amd his "mysterious" transfer from the University of Kansas. I haven't examined his innerchild with him but I'll leave that to John Bradshaw.
