1. Let's be clear: Jerry Tarkanian is the most famous alumni in Fresno State history. All the video tributes and tweets are nice and all, but would it really kill Fresno State to drop a towel-chomping statue of Tark outside the Grocery Store he helped build? Because, we’d hate for recruits to know the local history around here.
2. And before the blue hairs tell me ’80s coach Boyd Grant is at the front of that line, I didn’t hear ESPN talk about Grant’s Tomb all day Wednesday. Slap Grant’s name on the North Gym if you want, but no Bulldog is more beloved nationally than Tark. So, stop.
3. About 2,500 Fresno State fans spent their Valentine’s Day at the Save Mart Center, another 1,500 spent theirs at Beiden Field … and you thought romance was dead.
