Word is Gonzaga will be on the cover of this week's Sport's Illustrated.

Edited to add: Usually the "jinx" relates to favorites -- GU is certainly an underdog. And if I recall, SI had Michael Phelps was on the cover prior to Beijing.

Edit to the edit: This is a "Regional" cover.

The jinx used to be called the "Sports Illustrated Kiss of Death."

Arent most people on the cover of sports illustrated at the high point of their careers (most likely way to go is down) or playing in a big game (generally one of the two teams must lose, causing approximately 50% of applicable covers to be "cursed")?

You guys are forgetting that this is the team that overcame Patty Mills.

I say BRING IT :mad:

My wife stole the SI with Phelps on it from our eye doctor. Hopefully there will be an 'extra' copy around town somewhere that she goes...

Kalin Lucas, Ty Lawson, Jonny Flynn, Blake Griffin, and Levance Fields also grace the cover in their respective regions.

We're fine.
Go get 'em Zags!

It's only a regional cover so the jinx doesn't apply. AMMO was on a similar cover back in '06.

4 more wins would change it from a regional to national cover :)

I don't think they will see it in Memphis, it will probably be all Ty Lawson, so the curse is on them.

This will be thee featured national game. It shouldn't surprise us that GU hits the cover to hype the game....if it's hypable. Slipper still fits!!!....moreso if our kids beat UNC. Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, Lawson/UNC's getting the same press.

Might be among the top 3 game's we've played EVER! Moreso if we win. Recruits follow, prestige of the program soars....and there are other things that follow big victories around.

Let's stay on terra firma though and just win a game on Friday. It's best to stay focused. SI's cover doesn't help much. Go Zags! We don't want the season to end on Friday.....BEAT UNC!!!!!

Madden Curse >>> SI jinx

IMO.

Good thing Pargo doesn't play in the NFL.

The second sentence in the above post contradicts the first.

Adam was on the regional Sweet Sixteen cover back in '06 like Pargo is this year.

What I was saying is that if GU wins 4 more games this year I'm sure they would be featured on the national cover, not just a regional one.

It sure wasn`t Pargo that pushed us to the next round. Shoud have been Josh or Matt or Micah that deservered that cover. Or even Meech.
yeah, Pargo's 11-16 from the field in the NCAAs, how dare he miss 5 shots!?!?!!? And forget about his 8 assists, he had 1 TO in 2 games!!! OMG bench him!

You need more cowbell doctorzag as you seem to have a fever and be delusional.

this cover is AWESOME!!! I have already e-mailed it to like 10 people just this morning.

Definitely need to pick this issue up. My question to you all... can I hang it in my office, or do I wait until another win or two? For jinx purposes I mean??
