Tonight the Colbert Report ran a segment about various gods fighting each other in a tournament-like competition that used a NCAA-like bracket graphic (one of the writers must be excited bball season is starting up, too). The "teams" were all various religious or mythological entities except one spot - Gonzaga. I guess that puts us in pretty good company. :D That's the good news. The bad news is apprently we lost to Buddha in the first round. :o It was easy to miss so I thought I'd mention it.

I feel like this is not the first time GU has been referenced on the Colbert Report. I vaguely remember a mention a year or two ago, I feel like it was some kind of sterotype about the students.

I thought the STD comment was on The Daily Show, but maybe I'm wrong. I remember one of my friends had it on Facebook, but I can't remember which one. I'll try to find it, though.

My guess is, sadly, he was talking about the Gonzaga in DC if he said something about Catholic schoolgirls.

The same thing really let me down in the movie Breach.

I do remember a segment where he predicted March Madness winners based on whose name was the best euphemism for female breasts. I think we were in that one, but I could be wrong...

We lost to the Buddha ?!?

Should've brought Shiva in off the bench to play the low post.

With all those hands, Shiva should be guarding the 3 on the perimeter.

Buddha ended up in the Final Four at least, so no shame there, I guess.

That's exactly the kind of thinking we don't need right now. We should have STOMPED Buddha!!

Not sure if there are more clips, but here is a link to the last episode that shows the bracket (and you can see that Gonzaga is in the bracket):

Hey at least we made it on the show. I'm fine with losing to Buddha if it means we are a team of God's. That would seem to bode well for our season.

Zags should be Zeus. Or Apollo. Somebody with some POWER!

Buddha=Davidson? Has Curry reached enlightenment yet or is that when the NBA checks start pouring in?
