Win One For the Shootah

Ryan Appleby’s college career is not over. Yet.

In all seriousness, the Huskies deserve a postseason after being snubbed from the NIT for the second straight year. Still, the reversal of fortune here is amazing: when Ryan Appleby left Florida, the University of Washington looked like it was building one of the elite programs in the nation. Three years later, Washington State has won seven straight against the Dawgs; while all Florida did was win two national championships.

I do like the idea of the CBI tournament, because if nothing else it gives hope that someday the evil monopoly that is the NCAA doesn’t own everything having to do with major college athletics (they already own the previously-independent NIT).
