I wonder if ESPN 360 will have any of the Rome interview...


Maybe someone could dump the interview onto youtube after it airs...

(please!)

Nothing exciting. He talked about Heytvelt saying what we already know: He was disappointed, sad, etc. They will be back to the team after they meet a number of requirements.

It's harder to sustain success than it was to get the ball rolling at GU.

It would take something great to move him from GU. GU is a great job, we have good recruits coming in and we have made it to the tourney for 7(?) straight years which is rare.

He is more proud of this bid than any of those previous because of the way the team came together.

and he prodded Rome to come up and go fly fishing.

Was this a paraphrase from Few's mouth? Did Few say 7? Maybe he's so focused on the future at GU that he need not bother himself with knowing how many years straight GU has made the tourney.

He probably meant 7 years with himself as head coach (not including this year is the only way to make it work).

No, Few said 9. At least, I'm fairly positive that's what he said. He went on to mention that Gonzaga was only one of 4 or 5 schools who had been to the NCAA's 9 (or more) years in a row.

I have it recorded on my DVR upstairs...I'm just too lazy to go check again!

And that Spokane is a town that supports the team "unconditionally". That was the word that shut Rome up. Not many communities will give their coach the room needed to succeed. Few was adimate that he is content with Spokane's attitude toward the growth of the program.

Is this the first time publicly a return to the Zags uniform has been mentioned for Josh/Theo?

I have only been reading board speculation they are gone, without any options to return really?

ZZZJag,

This is a reiteration of previous statements from Few.

I think he originally commented similarly on the Patrick ESPN radio show.

FWIW

In reading the spokesman story from sunday (http://www.spokesmanreview.com/zags/story.asp?ID=178650) I thought it appeared that if they continued to work and fulfill a number of requirements, that it would be possible for them to return. Again, all of this would depend on the results of the criminal trials, which could take awhile.

He also mentioned their return - at least Josh's - during an interview on ESPN Gameday (radio)two weeks ago.
