Re: Celebrate the Team Thursday 5pm at Ryan Center (Note Updated Time)

I don't think the early time was based on the arena availability, I saw Jared and Jarvis had to leave autographs early because they had to go to class. Maybe other team conflicts as well? I was just going to ask why Jared and Jarvis weren't there signing. I was further back in the line so I missed ...

Word at the Ryan Center from those who are close to the Hurley family was that Dan's already laughing at the idea he's leaving. His phone has been blowing up since Zags dropped his name. He sure didn't look anything like he did last year during that long week listening to Rutgers' offer. He is so re...

I had a great time with my two young boys. After a great video yearbook kind of thing played and Coach Hurley, Stan & EC, and Thor all said a few words the fans were able to line up to get autographs and chat with each player at a long table. After that was the trophy and Rhody there for photos....

Right. OOC scheduling adapts every year based on the team's prospects.

First few seasons he wanted to get the feeling of winning back, even against lower opponents. Then last few seasons they were strategically scheduling to build RPI-boosting games and resume.

Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

Math doesn't really work that way. Both coach's have offset clauses. You don't just add up the liquid damages from both schools and get $11M.

Crean will get hired and that $4M goes away. The UCLA number I don't know.
