"Story said last season’s game against Washington was “an embarrassment” that is still fresh in the mind of the Wolf Pack.“You don’t want to ever want a game like that,” Story said. “Playing basketball your whole life, you don’t want to lose like that and have a game like that where you’re at the other end of a blowout. It’s just motivation to show that we’re a way better team than that.”"

"Still don’t let the defeats fool you. The combined record of the teams that beat the Wolf Pack is 15-2. Nevada lost 68-46 to Missouri State (4-0) in the season-opener at home. Nevada lost 71-67 at rival UNLV (7-0) and fell 76-55 to BYU (4-2) in Hoffsman Estates, Ill."

"“When you’re on the road, sometimes you just see things that are uncharacteristic of your team,” he said. “And right away, you go: ‘This is the road.’ That’s why I think, oftentimes, the veteran teams have much better success on the road — especially early (in a season).”"

"“And that’s where he has really surprised us. That was the question mark, (yet) he’s come in and been one of the tough guys. All the coaches did say of him, whatever you need him to do that’s what he will do – or try to do.”"

"With a 9-40 record at Washington State, it was no shocker that Paul Wulff was fired earlier this week (and quickly replaced with Mike Leach). Wulff’s brutal run as coach of the Cougars was miserable, but certainly not the worst over the last 30 years. Let’s take a look at Wulff and some other college football coaches who were flat-out disinterested in winning football games."

"“Don’t think too quickly. I think it’s something that every top recruit, or potential draftee does before thinking about going out. It’s just a kind of evaluation, I don’t think it’s even that detailed. Just listing a potential round that you’d go in,” Barkley said on “SportsCenter” Wednesday night."

"On the progress of the football program, here’s what he said: “So far I’m very pleased. It’s incremental process like I like, based on a solid foundation. We start off Steve’s first year 5-7 and last year 6-6 and this year 7-5. We had losses to very good top-ranked teams with one exception, which we didn’t like. But for the most part I am pleased with the progress and I think Steve and his staff are doing a hell of a job.” Asked if he had higher expectations after the 5-1 and 6-2 starts he said not really and that “I know the reality of it and I know how hard our league is. … At the end of the day we have to run this program in a smart and prudent fashion and I think we are doing so.”"
