Right now, do you think the zags can beat Portland

I am doubtful at this point the zags could pull it off.

Any thoughts?

what sport are we talking about???

are we doomed?

01-09-2009, 04:44 PM
are we doomed?

Of course we are! :D

Any thoughts? I would be willing to make a friendly wager...

Come on man. Save the magic for the right moments.

I just read a few more threads and now I know what inspired this one. Nice.

01-09-2009, 05:36 PM
Nice use of the transitive property, BZ. Well struck.

01-09-2009, 05:59 PM

Good call Bob.

01-09-2009, 06:23 PM
so smug

I don't think so, even in the MAC....

Brandon Roy is playing really good, I do not think Steven or Jeremy could defend him yet. Foster may be able to D up Greg Oden, but only for about 10 minutes before fouling out.

12 Aldridge, LaMarcus FC 6-11
88 Batum, Nicolas GF 6-8
2 Blake, Steve PG 6-3
5 Fernandez, Rudy G 6-6
52 Oden, Greg C 7-0
25 Outlaw, Travis F 6-9
10 Przybilla, Joel C 7-1
42 Randolph, Shavlik F
11 Rodriguez, Sergio PG 6-3
7 Roy, Brandon G 6-6
8 Webster, Martell

Some tough matchups.....so I agree BZ winning is doubtful!!!

Oh UP??? the Pilots with little Sikma and baby Raivio, tougher than they have been in the past, but we got these guys!!! Unless of course that Dominguez kid transferred back to UP from PSU.

I imagine that you laugh and chuckle as you type certain threads BZ. I will be there tomorrow, so If I see you, I will shake my finger at you. Not taking anything for granted, but I have a bit a lot of confidence right now.

Arizona is looking good tonight. RPI is important as rankings. Go Cats.

Ok well honestly we all know truly Gonzaga will blow em out. I mean seriously, Portland? I live in portland i have seen plenty of their games. Nik Raivio 16 pts per game? Ya but they have played no one! Except Oregon who is absolutely strugglin. Ya the zags have had some rough games. So... they just have had there confidence down since Price and 7 seconds left. Ya I was there.... that hurt. Thats all it was though Price Price Price Price Price. They beat Tennessee by 10 AT Tennessee ending their 37 game home winning streak which was second in the nation behind Notre Dame. You dont think the zags have confidence? They have plenty of confidence now especially after probably their biggest win of the season. Trust me..... The Zags are back.

You need to read every single thread and post to completely understand the hierarchy of college basketball.

One esteemed poster swears the Washington Huskies could beat the lowly Zags at will. The same Hussies the Portland Pilots beat earlier this year. That proves definitively what BobZag asserts, namely "UP can beat the Zags....right now"

We're Doomed ;)

01-09-2009, 10:36 PM
that's why I acted like the 5-6 Dominguez must have transferred AGAIN or BZ was referring to Brandon Roy's "new" team!

Maybe Ambition thinks Brandon Roy and Spencer Hawes both still play there???

01-10-2009, 03:17 AM
GU WILL take it out on Portland. Zags are HOME. HOME means alot....:)

01-10-2009, 07:19 AM
Surfing around the GUB this week, I notice alot of GUB regulars are going to be at the game today.

I'm thinking we should do "something" so we recognize each other. You know, like Star Wars characters.

So I propose we wear our underpants on the outside.

BZ, you first . . . Hondo, JHoops, El Voce, you follow BZ. You, too ZN & Angelo. This idea requires leadership, and you are our virtual(ly fearless) leaders.

Go Zags ! Go Bob !

01-10-2009, 08:11 AM
Who wears underwear?

01-10-2009, 09:25 AM
good point. I'll leave you a pair at Will Call.

01-10-2009, 09:56 AM
Are long johns allowed? Or does that defeat the purpose? And ... refresh me ... what is the purpose exactly?

I'll be parked in front of the Sony HD so will probably go with the Tommy Hilfiger emsemble'.

01-10-2009, 10:00 AM
it's the modern day equivalent of the captain midnight decoder ring.

i.e. we will know we are fellow GUB bretheren. the inside-out is so we can tell each other at a distance. at first glance. immediately.

01-10-2009, 10:29 AM
so smug

"I'm too smug for my shirt, too smug for my shirt
So smug it hurts
And I'm too smug for Milan, too smug for Milan
New York and Japan"

All in jest, ambition, all in jest. Smile. Life is good. :)

If ever the Zags needed Batman, they need him now!


01-10-2009, 02:47 PM
Wretched gamagin! Made me bust out loud laughing and frighten my housemate! My hair's a mess, though, so I propose an adjustment in strategy, just for me.


No cracks from the peanut gallery about how this might considerably improve ZN's image, either.

I hope GU can pull off a win on Thursday. Portland is playing VERY good basketball (understatement).

At first glance I thought maybe The Trailblazers played St Marys yesterday!
