And yeah, that is a shockingly poor article, even for GW.
As the son of the former editor of the Hatchet, I resent that remark. The second half at least; the first part was spot-on.

Your old man would let 'em get away with "surely factored negatively", Soc Scrim?

Tsk, tsk, ursus, not only are you prejudiced against my parents' alma mater, but you are sexist, too! 'Twas my mom who was editor of the paper (and a sportswriter--she says she was the first woman journalist ever in the WVU press box. Not sure I believe her, but it was the early 1960's)

Of course she wouldn't have stood for that garbage, it is truly awful, but that's not what what I was talking about. I was objecting to the "even for GW" bit.

(Actually, I wasn't really objecting to anything, just giving you a hard time.)

Touche; I forgot how young you were (I'm not even sure that GWU was co-ed when my mother graduated from college, given that she pre-dated Jackie Bouvier by a number of years).

More GWU talk:

they beat St. Louis last night--the Billikens scored 20 points. IN THE WHOLE GAME. It's the lowest total in the shot clock era.

Huge game tomorrow in the Pac-10: #4 Washington State against #5 UCLA at Pauley. The sixth time in conference history that two top-5 teams play each other.

Wazzu is the best team most of the country doesn't know anything about, and they are also one of the hardest places to play at. The Pac is really stocked with great teams this year.

Wazzu good at basketball?

My, has the world changed since I left the country.

20 points in a Division 1 game is extraordinary (though I remember ACC games that ended with both teams below that before the clock was introduced). What was their shooting percentage?

14.6%. At one point they missed 23 straight shots.

Unbelievably, Rick Majerus is their coach. though they have a better record than GWU.

Halftime, UCLA 35-22 Wazzu. UCLA shooting 64%, holding Wazzu to 38%. Leading in rebounds 17-7. Kevin Love already has 8 rebounds, to go with his 11 points.

Really wish I could watch this on TV.

In case anyone was hanging on in suspense, UCLA won. Not before a mad flurry of Wazzu 3s at the end--9 over the last six minutes.

There were 27 NBA scouts from 24 teams at the game...all looking at the guy passing the ball in this clip.

Nice pass for a big guy (and yes, I remember seeing his dad play for the pre-Jordan Bulls).

Not to be racialist, but did Wazzu play five white guys all game?

They are a rather white team.

Love's passing skills are what have impressed me most. A lot of people have compared him to Wes Unseld in a big man that can send an outlet pass down the court. The Wizard himself says so. He can catch teams off-guard like here against Stanford. Here's a full-court alley-oop pass in practice.

One of the cheapest, dirtiest plays I've seen--one of Washington's players couldn't inbound the ball, so he threw it off of Alfred Aboya of UCLA. Big deal, it happens, right? He threw it off of his face. And I mean hard.

Oh, and Aboya had a fractured orbital bone below his right eye earlier this season.

Yikes. That's low.

I'm talking pro 'rasslin massive heel-heat low. (When the bad guy does something so vile that the crowd boos them to the point of starting a riot or trying to kill them.)

Even if it is UCLA we're talking about.
