I do have one complaint, on your athletic website for the game you have the wrong Wayne State logo! (lol)

The logo is for Wayne State Univeristy, a D-II school in Michigan. We are Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska.

We are:

A record of 30-5, conference regular season champs, conference tournament champs, with a loss in the Elite 8. Send 3 players to the NBA, 2 of them being first rounders.

Also a nail-biter against Wayne State, with a last second shot to win.:)

Well if we are still in it for a last second shot, I'll predict Elite Eight for ourselves!!!!

Great point! :)

And, does anybody know anybody who can do something about the logo - that's not good at all.

Thanks for the clarification about which Wayne State. My husband graduated from the WSU in Detroit, so I was really wondering....

Btw, is WSC the school that Dr Krause graduated from?? I know he graduated from a Wayne State, and I am fairly certain it is not the one in Detroit.

FWIW...Steve Aggers, former coach at EWU and LMU, was the head coach at Wayne State (the one in Nebraska) from 1985 to 1990.

Dr Krause's bio on the gozags site says "Wayne State University", but I am pretty certain when I talked to him one time on a visit there with J he said it was the other school. Is there a 3rd Wayne State? *confused*

Jerry Krause

Position:
Dir. of Basketball Operations (8th year)

Experience:
14th year at Gonzaga

To my knowledge there are only two Wayne States:

Wayne State University - Detroit, Michigan

Wayne State College - Wayne, Nebraska

Steve Aggers was the coach here from 1985 to 1990. In five seasons he went 67-85 (.441).
