Boston called the return to the NCAA tournament "a first step" toward the goal he and Theus talked about in Atlanta two years ago. "We talked about winning a national championship, not about getting into the NCAA tournament," Boston said.
I wanna hate on Sean Miller because Arizona is so ubiquitous and dominant in our area, but the guy is a real class act.
NMSU used to compete with ASU and UofA in athletics but somewhere along the way the those AZ schools prospered and now there's a huge money-tiered rift between the those schools. The ASU campus has skyscrapers and a waterfront (in the middle of the freakin' desert) for Chrissakes...
I love the part of the article where they say Tucson quality of life is better than Ohio state quality of life.
No kidding sherlock.
Screw Ohio state Screw thad matta the crook
Long live real coaches like Sean miller and real quality of life programs like u of a.
You are not kidding JT. I hate Ohio. It's always raining, the sky is grey at least half of the year and plan to freeze your balls off cause it's cold and miserable most to the year. If someone offered me a million dollar raise to live in Ohio I would not take it. I know I'll get flack for saying that but I'm fine and dandy in the beautiful southwest instead of Moscow Russia like weather in Ohio. And yes, been to Ohio, spent time there and I hate it.
I would have liked to see at least some posturing and bravado from Caruthers and Moccia, even if they knew we couldn't back it up financially. Perception is big. I know it was fast, but we heard nothing until it was done, and still didn't hear much about it afterwards either.
Now, it could be that both were secretly happy that Weir was leaving. I guess only a select few will ever know all of the details.
Thad Matta the crook? Just about everything I've read about the guy from OSU fans and BIG10 fans alike was that the guy ran a clean program and was a class act, just not the guy to get them 'over the hump'. I mean the Buckeye football program w/ Urban Meyer is one thing, but it's not like OSU is a blue-blood for basketball. They made it to the championship game once, against Florida a while back?
Maybe someone should ask A.J. Harris.. Obviously he'd have the right insight.
