Nice review, but he's wrong about the Roe River... the D River in Lincoln City, OR is the world's shortest river:

If it says so on Wikipedia, it HAS to be true, right? ;)

I wish we played Idaho or someone after finals instead of Portland State. I think Port St is going to be pretty good this year based on how competitive they were last season and if we overlook them as 'just a Big Sky team' after finals week... It could be not pretty. At least it's at home.

Another thought - probably Montana and Port St have the best chance at the Big Sky title this year and we play both. That's some (hopefully) good scheduling of weaker but still solid teams.

Yeah... Portland State should be OK. They've also got two transfers from UP that some of us may remember - Jeremiah Dominguez (all 5'6" of him) and Alex Tiefenthaler. Add those two guys to a pretty solid returning group, and the Vikings should definitely be a contender in the Big Sky.
