Good Luck to Portland State !!

Post by goldhelmet on Mon Mar 16, 2009 10:06 pm

While my heart does bleed purple in all things basketball, I am an alum of both Universities, so I have to wish Coach Ken Bone and his Vikings Good Luck in their first round game against Xavier. What PSU has done the last couple of years is impressive and even though my bracket(s) will likely go with the safe pick (money usually wins out), I will not be upset if PSU pulls the shocker and I lose a point in my bracket (it won't matter anyway).

What a classy, classy guy Ken Bone is. PSU is incredibly lucky to have him:

After last year's NCAA Tournament, Oregon State and Loyola Marymount both interviewed Bone, but the Beavers hired Brown's Craig Robinson and the Lions went with former UNLV coach and Trail Blazers scout Bill Bayno.

If I'm LMU right now, I think I'm doing even more of this: Hitting my head agai

I think Or St made the correct choice: their coach can get them in a tournament based on who his sister married, while Bone had to win games to get his team in a tournament.

Yeah, if they would have gone 15-15 this year they would be a 7 seed in the NCAA tourney.

They hung in there for a while, but Xavier seems to have pulled away. I didn't get to watch any more than the "live-look-ins" but it seems that it could have been worse.

And yes, it was 7:25 MY time. And if you lived on the East Coast you would know why there is an East Coast bias...because everyone out here is a jerkoff (to put it nicely).

Are you just hostile against people because we didn't pick you up on our road trip to Stockton??

I was sitting on the stoop for like 36 hours before I realized you weren't coming to get me. I guess that sponsorship didn't pull through.
