"As Scott has said before, what many see as AQ conference expansion is really contraction — a pending centralization of the big programs to maximize revenue. And, yes, that means many get left behind. Sound worrisome and Darwinistic? Well, I’d like to introduce you to capitalism."

"“Coach Martin was a big reason why I liked Washington so much,” Beaver said. “I was basically a lock for Washington just last week but with Coach Martin gone, I don’t know any more. I still like Washington a lot, it wasn’t just Coach Martin, it’s a good school and I like Coach [Steve] Sark[isian] and I had a great visit there. I’m curious who the new DB coach is and they told me soon after the bowl game they’ll have a guy so that’s good."

"For now, Wroten says the NBA is nowhere near his mind. His focus is on getting better with his teammates every day and trying to win a National Championship.The transformation from kid to man is not yet complete. There are lessons to be learned and obstacles to overcome. While his game and size has NBA GMs salivating, he still has a long path to travel on his way to basketball glory. There should be no more whispers about who Wroten is or why he plays the way he does. His kill-or-be-killed mentality should be embraced rather than scorned."

"“Our guys grew up in this game quite a bit. We faced some adversity,” Lorenzo Romar said after the Huskies 87-80 win. What followed next was a laundry list of “good.”“Tony Wroten had a monster game. His presence was felt,” he started. “Abdul Gaddy broke out of his so called slump. Des Simmons and Darnell Gant were unsung heroes. Shawn Kemp Jr’s presence was felt. We had a a lot of guys step up and play well and it was much needed.”"

"On earning his 200th win: It’s a blessing that there’s been longevity here. You don’t get any amount of wins and have any success if you don’t have a lot of people around you. From Ken Bone to Cameron Dollar to Paul Fortier, Jim Shaw, Raphael Chillious. The guys that we work with all the time. And Lance LaVettier. We’ve had eight pros play for us. And then Tre Simmons and Hakeem Rollins, guys that were really good that didn’t play in the NBA. We had a lot of good people around us, and when you talk about 200 wins, that’s the reason why. The confidence from our administration has been great. The Dawg Pack as well."
