    Yes! Congratulations to Stephen! Had the opportunity to interview him for a student paper when we were both students. Amazing what he's been able to accomplish.

    We need strong number cruncher guy to replace Gentry's skill set. Far from Sacre's area of expertise.

    Now that the Zags have an Illinois alum on their coaching staff and Illinois has a Zags alum, I think it's time to reboot that series for some revenge (and some closer Zag games to me )

    Our trade secrets going to Champagne are much more robust than those coming to Spokane, which is a bit annoying.

    While that is 100% true just imagine Rob on the staff in some capacity and how fired up he could get the players. That would be fun to watch!

    That’s not exactly the role he would be playing with that job title...

    There would have to be an opening on the staff. The position that Gentry filled is not one that Rob would seem to excel at.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    True, but Rob's not going to want to give up family time, after playing in Asia the past two years.

    I have no expectation of that. It would just be fun to watch. Not being serious here. I do think Drew Timme is a mini Rob in personality and will bring the same sort of energy to the team as Rob did with Zags, Lakers and Sunrockers. (I'm talking about his ENERGY!)
