First things first. After losing a painful Big Sky Conference championship game in Montana, YOUR Weber State Wildcats will be playing in the collegeinsider.com postseason tournament championship game tomorrow night. Weber State became the FIRST team in Big Sky history to win 30 games in a season. Kudos to Coach Rahe and the program. Consider Rahe's seven seasons at Weber and he pretty much wins. After winning the Big Sky and an NCAA bid in his first year(thanks Coach Cravens) Rahe has won another regular season title and lost in three Big Sky title games with a 150-72 record overall and 95-26 mark in Big Sky conference play through seven seasons. With the exception of his second year, Rahe has led to 'Cats to post season play. Despite losing three Big Sky title games Coach Rahe has done tremendous program building at Weber State. I think there will be no question who the NBA's rookie of the year will be. He went to Weber State. SOO.....The 'Cats will play host to the Pirates of East Carolina at 6pm Tuesday at the Dee Events Center(O-TOWN) in a game that will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network. Tune in and watch. Hopefully Weber State will bring home a championship to Ogden Utah.
The 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament has been great. As expected. But Florida Gulf Coast expected? Alley-oop expected when you're "supposed" to kill clock because it's Georgetown. Harvard expected? New Mexico buried me early and the Mountain West did for that matter. Colorado State was the most fun team to watch this year Mountain West wise and hey, they lost to eventual champion Louisville. Too soon? Getting back to the Lobos, what have you done for me lately. Alford couldn't get outta there quicker after signing his extension. UCLA because it's UCLA? Good luck. My opinion, New Mexico is the better job. Why not be the first coach to lead the Lobos past the sweet sixteen? South Dakota State nothwithstanding, the Pit is an extremely hostile enviornment. You can look up the records. But hey have fun at UCLA zzzzzzzzzzz. Wheat Shockers expected? Well, I did have them losing in the Elite 8 but come on! Great story. Well, casual/average fan I guess you'll have time to find out what a Wheat Shocker is. Since I Don't watch much of ESPN anymore(very limited), I'm sure they'll send out Mayne or Reilly to Kansas and show you. Don't get any pathetic ideas ESPN, they're mine. Felt bad for St. Louis. They were a squad, along with Colorado State I followed more with detail. They couldn't throw it in the ocean against Oregon. Too bad but at least they won the A-10 tournament. Majerus would be proud. Florida, my pick to win it all played about a bad a game that can be played in yesterdays loss to Michigan. Wait, Kansas did that in the previous game with the worst final 2 minutes this side of Jason Williams. Syracuse, people surprised? Why, they have length, athletes, and wait a minute, they're Syracuse. Love the haters. Last time I checked Jimmy wasn't retiring but still was winning. That's to be expected.
