It’s A BigGiantHugeWide Mid Major World…

Until now, I think there are three people in the free world that know this fact. Two have likely forgotten. It isn’t a big deal, but it is one of those random tidbits that helps to shape the picture of why we keep rolling along with this endeavor two years after the book was published.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s I had a fling with the Big West Conference. I have no idea why, but I couldn’t get enough of it. Perhaps it was all the Cal-Hyphens or the mystery of the west coast, but no matter. I could rattle off the Santa Barbara lineup and openly rooted against UNLV. (Where have you gone, Ced Ceballos?)

Full circle? I received a random email last night from a kid by the name of Jayme Miller. He played for Cal State-Northridge (love those hyphens) and created a documentary for a class he is taking.

I present it here for no other reason than it represents what is very good about college basketball. Miller is the kind of kid you hope and believe will be successful.

  1. It’s nice to be reminded from time to time that the vast majority of kids playing college basketball are doing it for no other reason than a love of the game. I know Jayme personally, and I know that he will have great success in his life well after his basketball playing days are over. It was a proud accomplishment for Jayme and his teammates to win the Big West title and as fans of the Northridge program, we couldn’t be prouder of them or happier for them. Congrats, Jayme!
