    Fun Facts:

    Back in 2011, Whitworth's basketball team was ranked number 1 in the country for D3 college basketball.

    Whitworth won the National Title in 1960 NAIA national baseball tournament. Its leading pitcher, Ray Washburn, eventually pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds.

    As a Cardinal, Washburn no-hit the San Francisco Giants 2–0 at Candlestick Park in 1968 one day after the Giants’ Gaylord Perry pitched a no-hitter of his own, defeating the Cardinals and Bob Gibson. Only time in major league baseball history that back to back no hitters were pitched between the same team by opposing pitchers.

As a Division III school Whitworth has acquitted itself admirably based on what you have shared and I, for one, am one Zag who tips my cap and is not at all ashamed to admit I was wrong to have been perhaps arrogant and condescending in my ignorance here.
    Very respectful response.
    If you can't handle the confusion, stay out of the Foo!
