    Those acting like this would be nothing are not living in reality. They bring credibility to the league, and a year in and year out quality team.

    Nah, they were a stone cold lock. Lunardi had them as the Top 9- seed. Palm had them as an 8-seed.

    They were in, and not even close to the Last 4 In.

    Most of their titles are in sports that only a few teams compete in. Such as Water Polo and Beach Volleyball.

    The first half of your sentence is true. The second half is factually false. The WCC is looking very good. 8 of 10 teams are in the Top 150.

    It's not 2005 anymore.
  25. San Francisco is stifling San Diego right now.

    50-28.

    It's being broadcast on Stadium.

    Santa Clara/Portland up next.
