  • Tim Plough Named New UC Davis Head Football Coach
    Looks like Paul Shelton is back as OC according to social media release. He must have waited for the high school year to complete before returning - explains the delayed announcement

    Axel Eason is the son of former Aggie Bo Eason
  • 2024 Baseball Schedule
    I don’t follow baseball as closely as some on the boards - occasionally checking the stories in the website. After a second win over UCR last night, they moved to 27-25 with a final game vs UCR followed by home series vs bottom-of-the-conference Bakersfield to follow. Seems like a winning record is well within reach (a 30-win season would be a stretch). Considering where things were a couple years back, that seems like a big turnaround.

    Well…..that’s good news.

    As I said before, I’m pretty sure Rocek is enrolled and will be back also

    it’s great news. I thought TY really matured last year on the court. He brought a toughness to the team, but never lost his composure.
  • Portal Watch (2024)
    that’s what I’ve heard from someone I consider very reliable. Also, that Rocek has enrolled in a grad program and will be back. Not etched in stone, but I believe both will be back
  • Portal Watch (2024)
    I believe two big positives coming.
  • Seattle and Grand Canyon are Joining the West Coast Conference
    I find it hard to believe this is driven by money!!!!
  • Seattle and Grand Canyon are Joining the West Coast Conference
    Seattle makes sense; private, religious institution like the other WCAC schools (i remember them being in a conference decades ago with SMC, USF). Grand Canyon is a little bit of an outlier. For-profit school with a very large fraction of online and grad students. Some controversy about their grad programs. Critics refer to it as a diploma mill.

    They make alot of money and seem willing to spend alot on basketball to gain exposure.

    I’ve searched on that and can’t figure out the answer. I know for football, May 1 seemed to be the magic date that transfers were no longer allowed.

    If I read things correct, may 1 was the deadline to ENTER the portal. You can actually transfer up to fall unless you declare inactive. Example : we signed Drew Carter last year in July.

    For football, May 1 was the last day you could transfer - at least that was the message from Plough when he declared it Lan Larison day (he was officially staying).
  • Finally, a Business Major
    Plough mentioned this on a football alumni zoom the other night as a BIG DEAL for transfers. Helped them land a couple FBS guys for the fall. Not sure how much influence athletes and transfer portal had on Mrak, but it’s a welcome addition in the new recruiting landscape
  • Causeway Cup 2023-24
    when we lost in basketball and finished preseason with a couple other clunkers, I was really worried about the team. Boy, did they turn things around
  • Causeway Cup 2023-24
    still listed on department website. It shows 59.18-30.84. Really would have been lopsided without the men’s basketball brain fart
  • Transfer Portal 2024
    that sucks for Poly, especially this late. Maybe spring practice left him lower on the depth chart than starter? He didn’t impress last season
  • Bob Dunning “released” from the enterprise
    comments I saw on Facebook on Scott marsh’s post about it, made it sound non-voluntary. His wife had a comment about the column containing
  • Bob Dunning “released” from the enterprise
    I think he is still writing his column, just not working the sports anymore

    I thought I missed news that Stanford switched conferences again!

    I do think Cal is ascending; not sure enough to be a factor in ACC in the near future
  • Portal Watch (2024)
    he could have done that at Stanford. Probably sees Cal on the rise and Stanford, at best, stuck in neutral
  • 2025 Football Recruiting
    I wonder if they traded a smaller coaching staff for more out of state recruits?
  • Portal Watch (2024)
    TY was in the Give Day video posted this morning. Looks like filmed after a workout.

    Edit - just to temper things a bit, nit sure how current the video is. Pepper and Nico are in it.
