So basically Weber State and Montana have traded places in football and basketball

Until DeCuire bolts for the PAC12 and Weber's coach is gone, at least.

Well, there is an opening at Wazzu, the place where Big Sky coaches go to die.

I'd be surprised if DeCuire went there. There are other jobs DeCuire could take that'll increase his salary, and those would provide a much lower risk of being fired.

Also, I get the impression Pullman isn't a real desirable place for someone that isn't total white bread. I know Sherri Murrell wasn't comfortable when she was the WBB coach there, since she's an open lesbian.

Where does Rorie rank in the pantheon of Griz basketball players? Obviously the top two slots are locked down, but I think it's wide open after that.

He'd have overtaken Krysto for points total if he'd played all four years here. Still not sure how he landed in Missoula...

I'd put him top 5, with 3/4/5 in no particular order.

I know who the top two are but who do you guys think falls in the 3,4,5 spots? If Rorie is one of them, who are the other two?
