Happy Friday, Cougar Nation.

How about them Cougars?

Well, given that our boys are about half-way to accomplishing the impossible, I thought I'd fire off a quick DREAM scenario for how we can get back to the NCAAs:

A) Win out in the regular season (Duh!)
B) Both Oregon State (to Quack) and USC (to Stanford) lose tomorrow
C) Oregon State Loses to UCLA and Beats USC next week on the road.
D) Arizona loses to UW and at home to CAL next week

WERE ALL of these scenarios to happen, we would finish 5th in the conference.

We would then have a first round game against UCLA, CAL, or ASU.

Win that first game and we're in as the conference's fifth team.

So, there you have it. Win three more in a row and if the sky falls upward, we're dancing once again.

Lets fricking win tomorrow!!!!

Sure sounds improbable, but I also think it's possible that the NCAA gives 6 teams from the pac bids. Overall I think the cougs best chance is to win the pac-10 tourney, and if we keep getting production from the younger players anything is possible. Also, I'd still be interested to see how the cougs would fare in the NIT.

I am not optimistic about this year tourney, but sure it looks good for next year.

The trio Thompson/Capers/Casto with one more year looks very good even if the team will be even younger next year.

Right now, I think we can have a chance to do something in the NIT which is not bad in a rebuilding year.
