Just a Friendly Reminder that Sterk Continues to Fight for Cougdom



After watching a satisfying win by us and a satisfying loss by the Huskies last night, I dug into Cougcenter to read articles and threads. When I got to Nuss' "Vindication, yes - but redress? Chances might be better than you think" article, it took every ounce of will power within me to not respond to the Duck trolls. Instead, I channeled my anger towards the Duck into an email towards Jim Sterk:

Mr. Sterk-

As a Coug, a Coug sports fan, and a regular follower of the (wonderful) sports blog Cougcenter <http://www.cougcenter.com/>, I just want to further encourage you and Ken Bone to pursue this business with the technical foul at the end of the UO - WSU men's basketball game on New Year's Eve. Normally I try and let these things go; but after reading an insightful article<http://www.cougcenter.com/2010/1/1/1229335/the-anatomy-of-a-blown-call>on how the referees blew the call and an article<http://www.cougcenter.com/2010/1/8/1240946/vindication-yes-but-redress>on how the NCAA actually agrees that we were wronged, I really want this matter to be resolved fairly. It makes me angry that Pac-10 officials would not be penalized for such a bad decision (if nothing else, such a controversial call) that affected the outcome of the game. A submitted appeal from you and Ken Bone to the Pac-10 would show the Cougar faithful that we really do care about what happens in our athletic programs.

Thank you. Go Cougs!

It was a cathartic exercise if nothing else, and I wasn't expecting a response. However, I saw this in my inbox less than 2 hours later:

James,
We asked for an official review last week. The Pac10 supervisor agreed with the officials. We sent them more tape today because we did not agree with decision. It is not over.
Best wishes,
Jim

Regardless of the outcome of the appeal, I'm happy that he has not given up.
