Don’t believe everything you read

Posted by Jeff Nusser on March 29, 2008

We all expected this, right? I mean, you lead WSU to the Tournament two consecutive years including a Sweet Sixteen appearance, and everyone and their grandma is going to be after your coach.

If you believe everything you read, you believe that Tony Bennett is on the first plane to Bloomington this morning, and that the plane is filled with about $500 million. Or, you believe that Bennett is on the first plane to Berkeley, and that the plane is filled with about $1 billion. Or, if you truly believe that last story, you believe that he’s on the first plane to anywhere that’s not Pullman.

Or, you can listen to the guy who has covered the Cougs since last summer and believe him.

My thoughts on this haven’t changed at all — which I wrote about here and was written about here — and neither have those of anyone close to the program. So relax, and don’t panic. I still think Bennett is here for at least one more season, and probably longer.

Bracket Challenge, Round 3 leaderboard

Posted by Jeff Nusser on March 29, 2008

Sorry I didn’t get an update of this posted on Thursday night — kinda just didn’t feel like it, if you know what I mean.

We have a new leader with 50 percent of the rounds completed, and it’s “CliftonParkNYInterloper,” as all of the Taylor Rochestie brackets apparently took the same turn Rochestie’s jumper did.

The good news is, of course, that while I’m in 19th place right now, only two brackets have the potential to score more points than mine if I win out. In fact, if I get the final seven games right, I think I win.

Look out, here I come!
