I'm going to say no. Good to have you back playball. Love your insight as a former player.

I disagree. Chapman put years and years of effort into getting into the SCIAC. It's a conference that enjoys a high level of academic luster, and that's good for Chapman's brand.
Plenty of doubt in my mind. Whitworth was certainly a high-quality program under Coach Hayford, but you don't just snap your fingers and win a Walnut & Bronze. It's not that easy. Just ask Steve Moore at Wooster or Glenn Robinson at F&M.
To all you Hayford and Whitworth haters out there, I'll give you two more reasons to be glad Hayford went to Eastern Washington. Two of the starters that played key roles in the EWU win over Indiana were slated to play at Whitworth. When Hayford went to EWU he convinced both of them to follow him to EWU and walk on. One of those guys is picked to be the Big Sky player of the year. Wouldn't that have been fun?
WW is looking vulnerable this year. However, I have faith that Logie will pull it together and get them playing at the level they need to be at to win the NWC. Until they lose the crown--Long Live the King!!!
No matter what style of play, what is new information is the net result. I'm worried WW isn't even a playoff team. WMN, L&C, UPS, GF?? If the Pirates are trying to "right the ship," they might need a new captain, first mate, and crew...Ps. Whitman has 2 seniors on their team.
WMN is now up 35 points on Rutgers-Newark. These guys are terrible. This is who you lost to WW? At home?? WOW. Tonight against St. Thomas might be a blood bath. Somebody bring Logie a few extra suit jackets, I think he's going to need them.
When WMN shares the ball and lets the game come to them, they are good--top 25. When they try to force an early one-on-one, they're not as good. We all knew it was just a matter of time, but I think this may be the year that the power in the conference has finally shifted...
Pinecone, I saw the ww ot session. In 5 mins of watching, here's my two cents: Agree ww is solid across the board, as usual. Also agree though that I didn't see a go-to player.
Love your play-by-play crew. Thought they were awesome. Didn't think that was a foul under the bucket on your big fellow--that call hurt. But also didn't think it was a loose ball foul at the end.
I did appreciate Logies jacket spike. I found that enjoyable. However I wish he would have gone for distance instead. I also enjoyed seeing a referee give a technical foul AFTER the game was over...I think that speaks to the crew you had.
Interested to see WMN-Rutgers. A WMN win sets a huge conference precedence.
Why was Whitworth playing D'Youville? They were 1-24 last year. You only get 25 games in DIII--waste of a game!!!
Heading up to Whitworth for the Chapman game on Saturday. Then over to Hope ID for a week. Any suggestions for places to eat?
Should be a high scoring game.
