Hey everybody – I’m an expert!

Posted by Jeff Nusser on February 27, 2008

I truly was unaware. But don’t take my word for it. Take his (or at least his headline writer’s):

You’ll recognize that snazzy mug as that of Seattle Post-Intelligencer Go 2 Guy Jim Moore. He and I were e-mailing back and forth a little this week, talking about the team, and the result is a mention of WSU HOOPS in his column tomorrow, which is already up on the P-I’s Web site.

I get mentioned alongside such luminaries as Bud Nameck, John Blanchette, Ken Pomeroy and some guy named Tim Floyd. Pretty cool accomplishment for the site if I do say so myself. For the record, besides spouting my favorite statistics, I also said I thought this year’s team was better, largely because of its offensive prowess.

I’ve befriended Moore in the past year through our mutual Coug fandom and in collaborating with him through my work with the Washington Journalism Education Association. Many thanks to him for the shout out. He really is as good of a guy as he appears in print. And I think he’s spot on with his perspective on this year, something I’ve been advocating for all along — enjoy this ride, because you never know when it’s going to come around again.

If you’re new here thanks to Moore, have a look and feel free to stick around for a while. This is the post that was the impetus behind most of our conversation; it will give you a good introduction into what we’re all about. And this post flowed out of our conversation about potential seeding. We’ll have a preview/game thread up for Thursday’s contest against Cal, so come back for that, too.
