Boise State Roster Countdown 2021: Day 41, Jaylen Clark

41 days?! Does that make this Ian Johnson Day on the countdown? I don’t know about all that, but it’s Jaylen Clark Day at the very least. Mr. Clark was a late addition to the 2020 class. So late that he was even added after the traditional signing day, having inked his LOI on May 1st.

Coaching tree: Hughes' impact includes Olympic staff, others

SAITAMA, Japan — (AP) — U.S. assistant Dan Hughes is not the face of the Olympic women’s basketball team and he couldn’t be happier in his supporting role. The 66-year-old has had more than his share of success but believes his biggest reward is having played a role in the careers of so many coaches, including the American staff. National team head coach Dawn Staley played for Hughes in the WNBA.

Postgame Pontifications: A culture of winning

When Brian Schmetzer first assumed the “interim” role as Seattle Sounders head coach in 2016, the organization was at a low point. Sigi Schmid had just been fired, the team was languishing near the bottom of the table, and the run of playoff appearances seemed to be all but over.

7/23/21: Open Game Thread

Game one of The Most Important Series Of The Year could have gone better from the Seattle Mariners perspective. The M’s got the absolute best version imaginable of Oakland Athletics southpaw Sean Manaea and could not muster much of anything. Tonight, at last, the lefty-heavy hitting M’s get a right-handed pitcher in Frankie Montas, albeit far from a walk in the park. Seattle is putting up LHP Yusei Kikuchi to oppose him, the club’s lone All-Star who has struggled in his past couple starts. While Michael Ajeto just dropped an article on that particular topic, we can only hope Kikuchi can overcome the righty-heavy A’s lineup tonight and get the M’s back on track to gaining ground this weekend in their improbably playoff hunt.

US flagbearer Sue Bird from Seattle Storm: 'This Olympics are like no other'

TOKYO (AP) - Sue Bird is one of the flagbearers for the U.S. in the opening ceremony for the Tokyo Olympics, sharing that role with baseball’s Eddy Alvarez. Bird is a five-time Olympian in women's basketball. She remembers 2004 when the U.S. women’s basketball team got to walk at the front of the delegation along with flag bearer Dawn Staley, now the U.S. head coach in Tokyo. Bird says one of her favorite memories was walking in and hearing the crowd in Athens roar.
