From ESPN, pretty much the same thing:

Kelly goes as a courtesy and gets GU to give him some more money.

UW knows he ain't going there, but has to interview Graves to deflect criticism.

GU fully knows they have to pay him more.

It's just the way the game is played. I would have like it if Kelly would have poached a couple of the U of W 2011 recruits while he was over there. But that may have been going overboard just a bit.

Good point, poaching 2012 recruits would be better form.

THAT would be cool.

Our painful suspense was short, less than 20 hours and a good deal of that while we were sleeping or trying to sleep.
St Mary's men's basketball fans have been in limbo for a good deal of time, not knowing for sure if Bennett will return.

@kgzag Today is a really big day for me and my family. I love Gonzaga. I love Spokane. I love my team. I love our future together. Go Zags! ÜberSocial • 4/1/11 4:40 AM

It's true, Abe, but it happened about a year ago. Woodward cancelled the ongoing series with the Lady Zags.

Woodward does not seem to realize that to become better you must play better teams.

a fellow whose been on the job for 11 years so excited he can't sleep. Instead he tweets in the middle of the night just how happy he is to be where he is.

I think that says everything about what a quality coach we have and how good he feels about his job and his life. Fantastic !

I'll dearly miss CV......but I'm anxious for the Big Girls to get here and I'm anxious to see Jazzy and Nilles and Haiden play.....I think Kayla and Katie will
have big years now that we have some height.....


btw...I got my 2 elite 8 shirts yesterday....they were nearly sold on.....just got them in yesterday...but hope to have more on Monday...

btw, they said that the Ncaa has all the control with selling the gear at the Ncaa games....there was no explanation WHY there was no zag gear but that is all on the Ncaa....
