Get excited, Seattle fans!

The AP is reporting the Cougs’ opponent in the Hardwood Classic at KeyArena is …

(Drumroll please …)

Montana State.

Commence collective yawn … now.

For those keeping track, here have been WSU’s opponents in Seattle:

  • 2008: Montana State
  • 2007: The Citadel
  • 2006: San Diego State
  • 2005: Utah

If you’re a Seattleite and this is your one and only shot to see the team live, I guess the sixth-place Big Sky team is better than the 324th rated team in the Pomeroy Ratings. But I have to wonder how much longer this game is going to continue if we can’t do any better than the junk teams we’ve lured so far. The reason Gonzaga has been so successful with this format is because they’ve gotten some quality opponents over the years. For whatever reason, we haven’t been able to do that.

Perhaps, teams would rather play that game on ESPN rather than that piece of crap, three-letter regional network?

Hat tip to Vince Grippi over at SportsLink.

(UPDATE: Great take on the situation over at Stadium Way.)
