I remember when Penn State played at the JAR to crickets....one if my most PISSED off moments towards casual Zips fans, and especially the ABJ for their lack of content and building up the game....

Penn State played at the JAR?

I remember Purdue and Xavier playing at the JAR but not Penn State. I also remember VCU in the JAR the year after they went to the Final Four but I think that was a Bracketbusters event game.

I also remember Kansas State playing in the JAR many years ago the year after they were in the Final Four. I think during the Coleman Crawford era.

It wouldn’t be the first time I’m wrong here.  I swear it happened, but...I’ll do some homework...

As I recall, the Zips beat them in Puerto Rico.  They used real hoops instead of peach baskets in that one!

That's one small victory for @ZipsVoice, one giant ass-whooping for our Zips...

That makes sense. I quit attending Zips hoops games during the Coleman Crawford era. The games stopped being fun. Crawford was the nicest guy in the world, but a completely inept college basketball head coach.

Thanks for compiling that info.  Of our 4 transfers, the only transfer of real consequence is Utomi.  Frankly, I'm relieved Poke and Kostelac's scholarships are freed up.  Gueye was an intriguing prospect, but nothing more than that.

Good stuff.  Thanks for the research.  I suspect Buffalo transfers may come once they announce the new coach.

They did.  My bad.  I could see the situation where guys hang on to meet the new guy, then bail (similar to Antino).

They hired one of Oats assistants.

And not their first, or even their second choice, from what I understand.
