Craig Robinson, brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, fired as Men’s Basketball coach at Oregon State

Several factors can cause a college head basketball coach to lose his job.

A losing season record, overall losing record at the current school, second-half of game failures, losing games in the final moments, losing to your arch-rivals, most of all a half-filled arena and no enthusiasm from the student section.

All of those factors led Oregon State University to fire head coach Craig Robinson.

Robinson finished with a an overall record of 95-105 with the Beavers. He had one season above .500 at 21-15, two .500 seasons at 18-18 and 16-16, his first and last seasons respectively. And three below .500 seasons. His first team in 2008-2009,  went on to post a 5–1 record and captured its first post-season tournament championship ever with a final series victory over the UTEP Miners in the finals of the College Basketball Invitational. He would take the Beavers to the CBI Tournament four times. But the administration frowned on the fact that Oregon State never made it to the NCAA Tournament. His teams rarely beat their arch-rivals, the Oregon Ducks during his tenure.

The 52-year-old Robinson, who stands 6’6 inches tall,  is the older brother of United States First Lady Michelle Obama. He was a forward for Princeton University in the Ivy League from 1979-1983. Robinson was a two-time Ivy League forward and led the league in field goal percentage both years. He is the fourth highest scorer in school history. He played for the legendary Pete Carril.

Washington Huskies play at Safeco Field for 6th year in a row

The University of Washington Huskies baseball team will play once again at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners, when they take on the UCLA Bruins at 6pm on Friday, May 11.

The last five springs, the Huskies have played Pac-12 Conference games at Safeco Field – vs. OSU (2007, 2009, 2011), Arizona (2008), Arizona State (2009), Stanford (2010).

This will be the Dawgs’ seventh game at Safeco, as they played two games there in 2009, and will mark the first time the Huskies have taken on the Bruins at the big-league field. Washington first played at Safeco Field in 2007, when 10,421 fans watched the Huskies beat defending NCAA champion Oregon State, 6-2. Since then, the Huskies have played Arizona (2008), Oregon State and Arizona State (2009), Stanford (2010) and Oregon State (2011) at the Mariners’ home.

The red-hot Washington baseball team (26-18 overall, 11-10 in the Pac-12) makes its annual visit to Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners, this Friday to open a three-game series vs. UCLA (31-12, 12-9). The Huskies return from a seven-game road trip on which they won six games. The UW has won seven of its last eight overall and has (importantly when it comes to postseason hopes) moved over .500 in Pac-12 play after sweeping USC last weekend in Los Angeles. The Bruins, who are ranked No. 11 by both Baseball America and the coaches poll.

The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh to a contract on Tuesday, reuniting him with his former quarterback Carson Palmer.

Houshmandzadeh averaged 89 pass receptions per year in a five-year period with the Bengals.

The wide receiver is very familiar with Raiders head coach Hue Jackson, who was the receivers coach with Cincinnati for three years while Palmer and Houshmandzadeh were playing there.

Houshmandzadeh has had an up-and-down career since leaving the Bengals, playing for Seattle and Baltimore and trying to make New England and San Francisco.

The 34-year-old former star at Oregon State University recently had been working out in Southern California catching football’s from Palmer while both were out of work.
