Met, why is Oregon refusing to participate with the BCA? I can't find anything about it other than that they refused to give their information for the latest survey. Seems odd, especially now that Oregon has passed a law regarding minority candidates in head coaching jobs.

I hadn't heard anything about this actually. After a bit of research I now know maybe know as much as you do, probably still less. The only info I found, as well, is that the University did not submit the survey, I didn't read anywhere where Oregon "refused," I do see they failed to submit their report this year though. Not sure why that is. I can't imagine the University is trying to hide anything, I mean the only major coaching change(that I know of)in the last year was the promotion of Chip Kelly. That was a promotion from within, and Kelly being the heir to the HC gig has been common knowledge for years. :-?

Last I checked Oregon does have one of the longest tenured basketball coaches in the Pac-10 and he's black. So they got that going for them, maybe the university figures they get a pass since they have Ernie as their token black coach. :-B

Seriously though I'm not really familiar with the law. Is it just a law that requires yearly disclosure regarding the coaching staffs ethnicity and diversity? Are the schools required to interview a certain number of minority coaches when they have a vacancy? If so does that apply when schools promote from within?

I do read in this article, regarding Portland State actually, that the law itself doesn't actually go into effect until Jan 1st. Not that that matters much.

The law requires the consideration of minority candidates when coaching positions becoming available, so in effect it really doesn't mean anything to the BCA in terms of the survey. It is what they have been preaching since their inception however; so it is odd that with the State of Oregon being the front runner in BCA compliance, that UO would just forget to submit their information.

I agree it is odd, I don't know what's up with that. :-S

Who the hell gets married in November just 6 days before Thanksgiving? More importantly how could her soon to be husband allow this wedding to take place during football season? :-[

He's gonna be kicking himself in the ass every anniversary. :-b

You HAVE TO?

I dunno, man. Unless you get in huge trouble with Shannon, I'd seriously consider skipping it.
That or you could get a minature head-set. That could get really bad, though. I could see it...

Preacher: "If anybody sees reason why these two should not wed.."
Metroid: "YEAH!!!!!! GO GO GO.. RUN AS HARD AS YOU CAN!!" :-b

Hmmm.. not good. Just skip it. ;-)
