Speaking of Weber, former Wildcat Damian Lillard was at EnergySolutions Arena on Monday for the Trail Blazers’ game against the Jazz.

“I haven’t accomplished much,” he modestly noted. “I mean, I won Rookie of the Year, which is something I wanted to do, but right now I’m happy with how much we’re winning.”

Lillard’s humility is reminiscent of Kevin Durant, who once said he only dreamed of playing in college because, “I didn’t think I’d be in the league or none of that.”

No word on when LeBron James will claim he only wanted to make his high school team.

The Worm thing? Funny. Making fun of RSL players' disappointment in losing their coach? Poor taste, I thought. Oh, now we are back to the Worm thing. What do you know.

Weber State is in the Big Sky conference which has become a pretty serious Division II league. They send players to the NFL every year. They have big teams like Montana and Montana State (even after the expansion). But they play a very high level of football (Conference winner EWU even beat Oregon State). So, I'm not surprised that Weber is recruiting a top-notch coach. It is one league that needs upgrades wherever possible!

The Big Sky is not Division II, but rather Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). There is a big difference.

Hire Crowton. I doubt Edwards would be interested. He is probably on an LDS mission somewhere.
