So it happens every summer about this time, when the hoops info flow starts drying up in late summer, I start scrabbling around looking for a diversion from honest work. This time, it's organizing and bookmarking my video library and adding some new ones.

Here's what I've got. See if you have anything you want to add to the thread:

Hype: In lieu of a well-placed defribilator, I use these to get my heart going:


Gonzaga Love by BaratsAndBereta (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4i2TEEgMHM) - Indescribably funny parody of Life in the Logan Neighborhood, with Dueling Briefcases


Chooch Jackson Gonzaga Basketball Highlights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuDUhC9IUns) - Turiaf, Bankhead, Skinner, Stepp and others


HoodHarry Gonzaga Mix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kn9MsWmu0lQ) - One of my favorites, a collection of still photos put together with evocative music that makes me so nostalgic for that great 05-06 season …


Zagslug's Gonzaga Highlights 2005-2006 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPj7b7-wGho&feature=channel) - Zagslug Just Wants to Be a Rock Star! Master opus by our own Zagslug. Stick around until the end to see Errol Knight and JP Batista at an emotional senior night.


Gonzaga vs. Memphis pre-tip towel rally (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCnh1mcXcd8) - Not very long, but fun.


College Game Day Intro (UofL vs. UConn) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJhIqQkE30E) - Okay, okay, so it's not Gonzaga College Game Day, but if you, like me, sometimes need a fix of "Ain't Nothin' But a Pahty!" here it is.


2Zagslug pregame bunnies - zombie08.2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQAEibm_yRQ) - Another of ZagSlug's Great Offerings for a Warm Up, with The Runner at the end and some great big hair on Ronny in between.


Midnight Madness 2008 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOyd5AyTJkM) - Slick production for the big screen at 2008 Kraziness in the Kennnel.

JesuitHighLightGuy: These videos are also guaranteed to get your heart pumping, but they deserve their own category. I love this guy's stuff! Great use of music, great editing, great themes. Click on his name in the upper right corner of Youtube to see all his videos listed. One of the really good videos was stripped of its music by the music company, unfortunately.

So here are some dandies by JesuitHIghLightGuy:


Thunderstruck! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y-8s8rkiOM) - Simply the Best! Incredible energy, Amazing Crowd Shots!


GU Under Pressure - Winners from '06 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0-pQzS7v6k) - Zags in pressure situations, tie games. Great work!


Gonzaga 2008 Defense (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbAUqPPSVQ4) - Highlights from the Zags defense in '08


GU in New York Highlight (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUKVGkuUSto) - You might think at the start the old boy's lost his touch. Despair not. He's just funnin' ya.

Game Clips


2003 Arizona (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKBC3SzjxzU) - Film quality is shaky, but one of the great games of all times!


GU Maui Highlights by JesuitHighlightGuy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOGRtwF37ys) - What can you say about this game but "ONIONS!!!"?


ZagSlug's UNC @MSG (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-F95nUYZJI) - Turn the sound up, but it's some fun stuff with Steve Lavin announcing


Demetri Goodson's Runner (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62tnrlasVgM) - Paulkatran's version


Gonzaga Double OT win at Stanford (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZrfAIENzVg) - Great coverage of a terrific game, especially by Jeremy

Also be sure to check out paulktrans channel on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/paulktran) (Our own ZagMan in Philly) for over a 100 Gonzaga game videos, broken down into segments, so you can watch entire games online. Paul deserves special thanks for this terrific service to Zag fans everywhere!
Great Players:


A Lakers Presentation , "The Big Hearted Loss", Ronny Turiaf (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3lMTiXlhL8) - Alternating lump in the throat and deep pride Gonzaga helped shape this guy


Kuso talks about GU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ql-zic6_7sc) - What a place this guy won in our hearts during his two short years of dealing with Pendo's sock issues on the road.


Morrison Winner vs. Oklahoma State by Zagslug (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmY-BXzMc5g) - "Oh, what a smooch!"

Class of 2009:


Mangisto Arop - OregonLive Highlight Video (http://videos.oregonlive.com/oregonlive/2009/08/nike_global_challenge_mangisto.html)- Zag fans swooned for days



Sam Dower video from a Minnesota TV Station (http://gannett.a.mms.mavenapps.net/mms/rt/1/site/gannett-kare-3323-pub01-live/current/launch.html?maven_playerId=articleplayer&maven_referralPlaylistId=playlist&maven_referralObject=1005379887) - Click the full screen box, and it's watchable.


Elias Harris German All-Star Game (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_i9q5mGTGU) - Elias takes the MVP trophy


Vilarino, GJ: McKinney vs. Plano - PrepTicke (http://community.prepticket.com/video/video/show?id=823292%3AVideo%3A86850)t - We need more GJ video, people! Come on! Pony up!


Bol Kong Quarter-Finals 200 CCAA, Douglas College vs. Lakeland College (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNRWKRR50Z8)- Click on the RoyalsAthletics name in the upper right of Youtube to see the Semi- and Final Games


My Oddball Off-topic guilty pleasures:



97 chicago bulls introduction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYFlzJyxWlw) - It can't be helped: I love this.


Oklahoma State Cowboy Basketball Intro (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdRjnLJtoxQ) - I'm a junkie for this one too - The best college basketball intro in the world, IMO. Music, participation, excitement. Doesn't quite make me want to be a Cowgirl, though.
Thanks to all the Zag fans who upload these videos for the rest of us to enjoy!

That's a lot of videos. But what do you thinki? Do you know of any videos that should be on the Zags' greatest hits list?

...kinda shocked the one in my sig didn't make your list...The Runner is actually included in a couple of those videos, but you're right. I thought just before I hit the send button, "I should go copy Lothar's sig link and include the Runner." Laziness won out, as it usually will with ZN.

I also didn't include the video in my sig, which I think is one of the great of it's type and which I have to stop and look at approximately 50 times a year.

Lothar, much as I like the clip in your signature -- I'm always disappointed that it cuts out 3 seconds too soon.

It misses Gus Johnson's incredibly classic : HOLY COW !!!!

I know, beggars can't be choosy -- but I always enjoyed the entire call. GoZags

I didn't make the video clip, so if someone can find one that is a few seconds longer, I'll gladly replace/improve the existing one.

So, we have received no further nomination to the Great Zag Videos thread? Am I correct, then, that ZN has correctly provided the last word in great Zag videos and has divined all that may be said on the subject?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/21/Carnac.jpg

To those of you who may be holding out with your own private stash, and not passing it around, so to speak, the Native would offer these words from the great Carnac (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnac_the_Magnificent):
("may a rabid holyman bless your nether regions with a power tool", "may a bloated yak change the temperature of your jacuzzi", "may you walk a mile under a diseased camel", "may your only son become the goalie on a nude hockey team".

Man! I hope you were all at the beach or something when this thread came up before, because somebody was snoozing to let this thread go by without adding the Before the Bigs Ronny Turiaf series of nine videos Paulktran (our own Zag Man in Philly) uploaded to Youtube.

I hope that our incoming freshmen find the same type of home that Ronny did and that Gonzaga becomes as dear to them as it did to Ronny.

And with the thread about Tommy Lloyd on the board right now, it's fun to follow the relationship described here between him and the Frenchman.

Do yourself a favor and subscribe to Paulktran's Youtube channel, and keep your fingers cossed he continues his great uploads of Zag-related video this year as he did last year!

I wish I could be there opening day when Zombie Nation is rocking.

Without a word of a lie, and with all due respect to us few hoops fans in Canada, I feel so good for Bol to be finally able to play in front of a crowd worthy of his talent, commitment and perserverence.

The look on his face, when he runs out for the 1st time, will be priceless.

Austin sure snuffed out a lot of shots. The Zags will really miss that.

I sure felt a serious pang when I watched him in that Midnight Madness video ...
