Come on Frank, you're a Big West beat writer, couldn't you at least take the time to spell the coach's name right?

Give him a break, Jim. Sheeesh...How about giving Frank B. some credit for another one of his expert breakdowns in this article? We're blessed to have a writer of the caliber of Burlison in our own little backyard at the Beach. He keeps hoops fans informed and intrigued about all things basketball from high school to lottery picks all year long(if you're reading this, Frank, I can't think of any alliteration [two lines up: high school to ...]at the moment because I'm so upset).
All you can comment on is a probable misread, and subsequent misspelling of the UCR coach's last name? By the way, it's an honest mistake -- I had to read it twice myself to finally notice it should be "Wooldridge" instead of "Woolridge." The latter is much more common and comes to mind right away as many of us will certainly associate the name with former NBA-great Orlando Woolridge, who's also a former Big West star (CSUF), by the way. So, Frank B.: We forgive you for this triviality...and Jim: Get a life!:(...

Yeah ... my bad; typed it too quickly and SAW Wooldridge instead of Woolridge when I proof-read it.
