Craig Robinson--- Good for ESPNU for picking up former Oregon State coach Craig Robinson as a studio analyst and color analyst on college basketball games this coming year.
I always wonder about the thought process of schools giving contract extensions to coaches and then firing them as Oregon State did with Robinson in the span of a less than two years. Robinson did as well as anyone has at Oregon State since 1990, the last time the Beavers were in the NCAA tournament.
One good thing, by ESPNU hiring Robinson, it will reduce the amount the Beavers will have to payout to Robinson in future years after letting him go.
Shame---- Sports is sports and injuries will always happen. But it was disappointing in my hometown of Portland, Oregon to hear some people almost in joy over the broken foot injury to Kevin Durant. Durant's Thunder play the Blazers in the season home opener in Portland on October 29th.
As I say all the time, if you can't beat a team with their best players playing, then you really are not that good of a team to begin with. Of course this year, Portland will challenge Oklahoma City for the upper tier in the Western Division of the NBA.
Never earn sports show glee over injuries, cause they are coming your way very soon, it always happens.
