Incredible. Such negativity before the entire schedule is even released. I certainly hope our women's hoops players are not reading some of these pessimistic, critical comments. They deserve better.

Hoopie, I agree entirely on all counts.

Fortunately, the team is enjoying their visit to New Zealand now. Gocolgateraiders.com includes a story about their latest win. I checked out their opponent online and see they were 2014 national champions!

But win or lose any particular game, our teams are comprised of winning students and the value our coaches and administrators deliver is first class. That's the way I choose to see it.

Go 'gate!
