Nice DD! I sent that photo to my brother (Capt. Woodless, USMC) with the subject line 'this also explains your golf game'

Oh, I've got a lot more like that, but I suspect Captain Woodless has seen them all!

We always used motivators that were to the point; no innuendo or confusion! pirat

From an old, but timely article at SI.com:
The AAU summer has come and gone, and as the calendar creeps toward the advent of games that actually mean something, many of the top Class of 2012 and '13 recruits will commit to colleges. Inevitably, a bunch of those recruits will cause heartbreak by either decommitting, asking out of National Letters of Intent, or enrolling and then transferring -- and jilted coaches will bemoan this as part of an epidemic that's hurting the sport. I've heard coaches use that exact word, epidemic, as a descriptor for what they consider a rising trend: Players no longer feel obligated to hold true to their word, or stay loyal to one team.

As talented as Tim was, he really might not have earned the spot this past season. As the other posters have noted, he didn´t have that competitive spark that he had during his Freshman year that had made him nearly impossible to keep off of the floor. Where was the player who lit up Portland State and won player of the week two times? Where was the player who helped us to upset Saint Mary´s in the previous season? Neither Nem nor Tim played as well as I would have liked in the past season.

Sometimes coaches bench players as a motivational move. If a player doesn´t respond, that says more about the player than the coach...

Naw, it would be way too confusing to have another Bailey. tongue

Jordan Bailey was never really recruited hard by UP when he was at Beaverton High even though he was highly regarded by some scouts (academics?) I know before signing with Iowa State he was strongly considering St. Mary's.

I also know he had a couple of skirmishes with the law while in Iowa, while not disqualifying, it would be a departure from the norm for Rev. Wherever he goes, he' have to sit out a year and start as a junior -- I do NOT think that is a fit for UP!!

His name is Railey . . .though it rhymes, he prefers that the distinction be noted for posterity, so I assume.

If true that he had "skirmishes" with the law, I would agree that he may not be a player we want.

Nope, he asked for and got a release.

The rules are hard to unravel, but doesn't this say basketball players must sit out a year even with a release?
If this is your first transfer…
If you have never transferred before from a four-year school, you might be able to use the one-time transfer exception to play right away at a Division I or II school.
To use this exception, you must:
1. Be playing a sport other than baseball in Division I, basketball in Division I, men's ice hockey in Division I or football in Division I. Note: In football you may be eligible to use this exception if:
a. You transfer from a Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) school to a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) school and have at least two seasons of competition remaining; or
b. You transfer from a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) school that offers athletics scholarships to a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) that does not offer athletics scholarships.
Important Note: If you do not qualify for this exception due to any of the conditions in Subsection 1 above, you may be able to use the exception if you were not recruited by your first four-year school AND have never received an athletics scholarship.
2. Be in good academic standing and making progress toward your degree;
3. Have been considered academically eligible if you had stayed in your first school; and
4. Have a written release agreement from your first school saying that it does not object to your receiving an exception to the transfer residence requirement.

Yup, you are right. I forgot about the different rules concerning the one time exception.

He has to sit or move to another NCAA division.

Well, I'm with Ashton Kutcher, who said:
I don't believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still.

Y'all need to pick up a copy of the Beacon -- or see this link: http://issuu.com/thebeacon_univ_of_portland/docs/the_beacon_-_march_29_-_issue_21_real?mode=window&viewMode=doublePage

There is a nice little bit in the Sports section on Douglas' decision.

Yes, there are a number of April Fools Day articles this week. My favorite is about FREE FOOD at the Bauchio Commons! pig

Back to Tim D. He says he disagreed with Rev's decision to play him at shooting guard, i.e. at a wing position. I agree with him, I thought he shouldn't be playing the wing either. But the alternative was to sit him down, as he was creating too many turnovers. And they can't all be the fault of his teammates not being in position to catch his passes.

Best of luck to him at his new school.

There are no protests or free food, of course. It's a good April fools. But, the theme park would not be the first religious theme park ever. Argentina has one: Link 1 and Link 2 (in case you want to see Christ resurrected every hour on the hour). I would personally be okay with a theme park. Better recruiting! Just think of the potential for getting great athletes if they can go to a theme park instead of practice! jocolor

I did think banning all attendence at athletic events because nobody goes anyway was kind of harsh.
