Re: 2021 NCAA Tournament

What an odd response. Obviously Davis are a poor team compared to the top 4 and the top 3/4 GCC teams. Not odd at all. It was a very polite way to say sore loser to a certain uninformed UCSB fan :) Again, non- league games do not mean much especially if you do not know say how many hard swim sets k...

Re: 2021 NCAA Tournament

DAVIS 9 Beach 8. What a game. Aaron Wilson had an incredible game in the cage.

Re: 2021 Season

That CAL Spaniard goalie was a transfer from West Valley College. Started 2 years there taking the spot away from a really solid American goalie that could have used the exposure... Just like an American goalie could have come in and taken his spot away. I’m gonna assume everything the WV coach and...

Re: 2021 Season

Sounds good but I'd imagine there isn't any chance of the NCAA increasing the number of scholarships and even less chance of them funding them. Good idea though it is wouldn't that actually increase the number of overseas players? Of course it will never happen, but the question was asked about bas...

Re: 2021 Season

D1 basketball has 13 scholarships per team, so they are going to fill those 13 spots, then a few walk ons to fill out the roster (who almost never play). There are many different schools to choose from and scholarships are guaranteed. If you want parity in water polo, bump the scholarships up to 8 a...

Re: 2021 Season

Anyone else notice Nohorsepolo never responds to any questions/inquires about USC? Odd. I was just curious to see if he thinks his foreign nationals will help them win this year. I’ll respond (to myself maybe?). Porter and Mercep are obviously important. Other than that, who logs minutes? This is t...

Re: Where in the World is Jovan?

Excellent point RB...that one of the individuals who benefitted was his son (who was also a player) could jeopardize any games he appeared in. But I also recall reading that some money was used to fund the assistant coaching positions. Both of those assistants are now head coaches in the program......

Re: 2021 Season

Maybe the way to get other team more competitive is to limit the number of guys in a program. The fact that usc and ucla have 30+ guys impacts the competitiveness of other programs. Just think about the guys in those programs not on the rosters this last weekend. Right. Tell a person they cannot go...

Re: 2021 Season

This tournament needs to be bigger. Giving two teams a bye into the semi finals is a huge advantage. Cal and USC deserve the top two seeds, but should have to play at least one game to get there. And the deck is really stacked against the teams in the play-in game, who'd have to win 4 straight game...

His poor use of Nangle in general is bewildering.


Bewildering is the perfect word. Should of been the workhorse all season.

Re: 2021 Season

Stanford has no claim to a spot. It really isn’t close. USC is 100% in with only 2 losses. Stanford has 6 losses.

I think Cal probably lost the top seed this weekend. UCLA, USC, Cal in that order? USC could also get the 1. It’s close.
