Dude, I gotta go with the Whitworth guys on this one. You do not put your best foot forward in an argument concerning D3 men's basketball when you bring D1 comparisons into it.
The argument is not D1 vs D3, it's those that strive for excellence vs. those that don't. You're telling me a school like Gonzaga (in the same city!) can compete with the best and the biggest schools in the country yet WW can't compete on a D3 level?! You've all lost your minds. The problem with Whitworth is that they follow the same safe system every year, which is only good enough to win the conference, not national level, and they're...oh how did Pinceone put it, "fine with that." (I know this is going to disappoint, but I'm all talked out on this one)If a team was picked to finish last in the league by the coaches, and then turns around and makes the biggest jump of every team, does he not deserve to get votes for coach of the year blackhawks? Everyone was saying they were going to be the worst team, but became the 4th best team in the league, why not reward a guy for his improved team?
He should have been picked to finish last. His team won 1 game last year. But he's been at Willamette for 6 years. He didn't inherit this team. He recruited this team. He made this current hoops program. He's made his own bed. Now he wins 8 games and finishes 4th and he's coach of the year? Come'on.
WW gets the title by not slipping up. The key to championships.
Winning the next two games is going to tough. Should be a fun league tournament. The Whits a both playing well right now. Nice to see Willamette back in the top part of the league. LC does not get much love on this board. Congrats to them for a great league season.
Playball, I was just trying to help get some LF fans at the game. All of your LF fans must of been at the Civil War game and tailgating afterwards. There were more Whitworth fans than LF fans at the basketball game that night.
My #2 is Linfield--for all the points that Rat brought up. The football argument in nonsensical to me and I don't buy it. I've never been around an athlete worth his salt who avoided a school with a good football program. In fact, when looking for a school, i think having more jocks around would be a huge attraction.
My niece plays a sport at Linfield and has talked about being a 2nd class citizen when it comes to football vs everyone else. For example, when she was hurt last year she couldn't get any assistance by the training staff who told her to go away, that they only had time for the football players. She ended up having to do her entire rehab stint herself off campus and going home on weekends to get her PT uncle to take care of it.

And National Championships in softball and baseball are chopped liver.
Bells! Geo Fox has two National Championships to Whitworth's how many?
...Playball is right...
