Thoughts as Jamie Moyer finally gets to start a World Series game:
- We're not alone: The third-longest scoring streak in the nation is now dead. Colorado saw its 243 game streak snapped in a 58-0 rout by Missouri. So much for the Dan Hawkins era in Colorado.
- Notre Dame is up 24 to nothing on the Huskies as I write this.
- Kyle Weaver scored one point tonight for the team that shall not be named, in a preseason matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks (h/t coughoops.com).
- As concerned as we've been about football recruiting, it's good to see a commitment from offensive lineman Quayshawn Buckley out of California. Cougfan has more here, if you have a subscription.
- Bellevue safety Jamal Atofau has also committed. Love this quote from the P-I: "I want to be part of something where we turn the program around," said Atofau... "I want to be part of something big." See? Not everything is lost.
- One thing I haven't gotten around to doing in this exciting, exciting football season is take a look at basketball semi-big man David Chadwick. He's a North Carolina forward who had a truckload of offers from mid-majors, including George Mason. Chadwick at 6'8", 215 pounds, should draw some instant physical comparisons to Robbie Cowgill - and like Cowgill he's a good rebounder and defender, who should be a great fit for the Bennett system.
- The Cougs still have one scholarship left to give for 2009, and they'll likely be looking for another big man. One potential fit is Aussie Angus Brandt, a 6'10", 220 lb. center ranked 15th at his position by Scout.com. He will visit Oregon State next month, but has scholarship offers from WSU, Michigan, Arizona State and a few other major conference schools.
- The basketball scholarship chart has been updated. Read it - because it took me about 30 minutes to reorganize it.
Hang in there, Coug Nation - Stanford gets the Cougs next week, and basketball is right around the corner. Now let's go Phillies!
