With WSU eliminated from March Madness a local writer says:

The monster has been created. And now the monster needs to be kept on a feeding schedule.

With 145 wins over the past five seasons, which includes an NIT championship, an NCAA Final Four and a 35-0 unbeaten string before a loss to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament’s third round, the Shockers are a college basketball beast.

Which is a good thing for the local college, but some questions bother me even yet and the afore mentioned writer asks them also – and some I’d not thought about.

5. What’s the incoming recruiting class like?

6. Will the Shockers start recruiting bigger names thanks to the recent success.

Were two of my more pressing questions. Number six being the largest of them. Being looked down upon has drawbacks, and I’m not thinking the unionization of college players will help anything, any time soon.

Oh, the reams of prose that subject will reap.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
