    It was my freshman year in college at USI (2006) that the rest of Indiana adopted DST. The Evansville area already used it, but the majority of the state didn't. Much of the campus was very confused that day when they had their first-ever time change. It used to be confusing because we could drive less than an hour and be in the non-DST area, and you'd have to remember if their time matched for that half of the year (CDT & EST) or was an hour fast (CST & EST). I'm just glad now that they've eliminated one element of confusion, but we still have to deal with two time zones.

    Here's pre-2006, the yellow areas were Eastern without DST, the darker yellow region in the south was Eastern WITH DST, and the red was Central with DST.



    Fast forward to today, and the entire state observes DST, but still split between Central and Eastern. With so many big border cities (Chicago, Louisville, Cincinnati, Detroit), it makes it difficult for the state to agree on one zone, despite the state being geographically within the Central region in its entirety.

    I wasn't trying to rub it in, just basking a bit in our good fortune. I think WT has a shot at winning it all this year. Better than last year, when we lost to Ferris in the semis.

    Seems as long as you have Brown and Gove you will be a perennial contender. Sure is a kick in the teeth for us with where the WSU program was and having these guys patiently waiting in the wings for their opportunity. Their success in Texas drives home the often stated point of who was really behind the golden years of Winona State basketball. I have given generously to the Warrior Club for some time but passed this year being fed up with the direction of the program.

    If you're looking for a new program to support, I hear Augie is considering a move up to Division I and could probably use your financial support.

    Rumor on the street is Eisner is doing everything he can to find another job. I would sure hope they do not give it to Malvik because he hasn't done well in the head recruiting role. They do have some talent coming back next year but nothing I see to move them much up the ranks and after watching Malvik handle the Upper Iowa end I don't think he is ready for this level coaching wise. Would love to see them approach Gove and Henderson for the job. Heck even Stromer would be better than Malvik. Other route would be going to Randall Herbest I think he could do a good job too.

    WT is fun to watch Quaid is like a mini John Smith. Not as long or able to defend the rim as well but his offensive game is so similar. The guards they have are dang good. 3 of them who can all attack and shoot it. They also can defend. I like Gach Gach the most of out all of them though. Local kid from Minnesota down there has gone 65-7 in two years. He plays tough defense and bombs away from the NBA line. If they get going on offense they are tough to stop.

    Tom Brown and Chris Gove are in the Elite 8 for the 6th time in 13 years. Pretty sure no other coach assistant or head have been back that consistently in the past 25 years. Winners win and they are winners. Hope Brown gets a shot at D1 he deserves it.

    Jim Crutchfield made the Elite Eight 5 of the last 7 years he was at West Liberty, and he’s back in it this year in his second season at Nova Southeastern. That would make his 6th Elite Eight in 9 years.

    Touche' I raise you 2 national championships, 3 national championship game appearances, 4 final four appearances. Maybe someday he will win the big one, maybe next week.

    How many has Brown won as a head coach?

    And paying the other team to take him. When the AD made the clause in the application that you had to have a minimum of 2 years head coaching experience to apply, Brown and Gove could not even get an interview. They would have stayed and for a few years even would have come back, don't know if they would anymore and why would they under this AD. That was all on the AD, he has to go...

    The only coach who would qualify to apply would be Brown since he has been a head coach and none of the others have been. The same would apply to Malvik as well if he follows the same formula. Not sold on Eisner either, he lost a number of games at the end to. There are some good players coming back but if you don't have a great recruiter they don't get the support for the players they have.

    Crutchfield did all that as a head coach, not as an assistant on someone else's staff.

    So you got the joke, cool.

    Aside from completely missing the joke (as Augieholic noted), I'd be remiss not to mention that I think most Augie fans feel pretty good about the direction and future of Augie's program, in spite of taking a slight "step back" for a couple of years. Other than the Bearcats, I don't know a ton of teams who don't have a couple of less-than-National-Championship-caliber years after winning it all. In the three years since winning it, we made the Regional once (and lost to the eventual National Champion), missed the Regional, and then narrowly missed it this past season. There are a decent number of teams in our region who would gladly take those results, so I'm not crushed that those are considered "step back" years for the Vikings.

    That being said, I'd love to see (and expect to see) the Vikings make some more noteworthy postseason waves starting again these next few years.

    If you only knew. I think it speaks volumes that the Winona program started to have issues when Brown and Gove started to speak up to admin about it. Then once they left the wheels came up. You can say he was an assistant but Brown and Gove were keeping that ship moving. Leaf was busy drinking, popping pills and god knows what else.

    I will take Brown and Gove over Cruthfield any day. Go win the big one then I will consider it.

    I'm a little slow sorry I don't have the acumen of a Augie grad. If i were a fan of Augie which I am not I would have wanted to see the program stay near the level in which you are in the regional every single season not just close.

    Understood. Like I said, I'd be curious to know which teams satisfy that requirement other than NWMSU. Mankato has been in many/most the past several years, but only a serious contender in a few. I haven't done the research, but I'm pretty sure most other NSIC schools and other programs in this region have more or less come and gone in waves with a few years in and a few years out.

    Oh, I know all about Leaf. And I wasn't advocating for one over the other, but you said you doubted any coach has been to the E8 as much as Brown recently. I was just pointing out that Crutchfield has been more....and far more as a head coach.
