A few random links to kick off Hump Day...
-Beaver round ball is getting some more love from ESPN. See this link as well as the shot of the current cover page of college hoops (below).
I think the article only has one or two Michelle-Obama's-Brother references, which is a step in the right direction.
-Cal preview from CBS Sports... in a shocker, both teams say positive things about each other while the reporter talks about how important this game is for both teams. I really hope the Beavs are hungry because this is a must win, linchpin-for-the-season kind of game here and it will take MUCH more than a UCLA-esque effort.
-Schaftenaar stayed in Corvallis for the summer and pumped iron. Dude packed on 20 more pounds of pure Dutch muscle. Should be a bigger presence in the post. I wonder how pissed Jay John is that Roeland's suddenly a beast.
-Buker says Beavers are "standing on the intersection of 'average' and 'outstanding'"... "outstanding"? I'd like to think we're at the intersection of 'average' and 'pretty good'... I mean, it's not like a win at Cal is going to lock up a spot in the national title game. THAT would be an "outstanding" outcome for this team but hey, if we don't let teams like SC, UA and Cinci off the hook, MAYBE we're talking about an "outstanding" year. So far though, pretty good.
That's all for now folks. Post what you find in the comments and have a good one. GO BEAVERS
