Sure hope the LVs put their best foot forward at Stanford Saturday. I thought the out-of-conference schedule was a little light this year, but I didn't realize it was because nobody wanted to come to TBA. I guess if the LVs want to play the top-ranked programs, they will just have to go hunt them down. I hated to see the UConn and Duke series shut down. If the big programs don't want to play each other in the regular season anymore, something vital will go out of the women's game at a time when the sport could really use a boost.

It's a shame that other top tier programs don't want to play in TBA anymore. Pat's philosophy of anybody, any place, any where has elevated the women's sport to where it is today. It's sad to think that other coaches only want to play teams that they know or have a good chance to beat. Thats one of the reasons that Pat is in a class head and shoulders above other coaches.
