I don't know what to say. Actually I can't say anything because I said I wouldn't comment on another BK thread until he was here. But here I am, praying this is for real (unlike the other five times).

Must admit, kind of an entertaining exercise to respond in only pictures. They really are worth a 1000 words. ;)

In all seriousness, I wish Bol the best of luck and hope his dream to play in the States comes to fruition, hence my final picture.

Go Bol! Go Zags!

Huge pickup for Gonzaga Basketball.

I feel the best for Bol, I'm sure it was hell on earth waiting for this transfer to materialize, have to admire his patience.

Maybe GU basketball will live on.

First, I want to say, if this is true, CONGRATS to Bol.

Then I want to remind all of us to remember what he has just gone through. He is probably going to need time to adjust to the U.S., school, playing basketball at a D1-level, and then playing in competition. This year I just want to wait and watch the improvement through the years, but not expect miracles this year. I hope that many of you will also remember and do the same.

OK, I'm drinking the koolaid. I've always said I wasn't going to be satisfied until I saw Kong in a Gonzaga uniform with my own eyes but dang it, I want to believe so that's what I'm going to do. :D

Kong threads have been insane places lately. This thread could turn into either a party or a lynch mob, depending on it's veracity. I hope your source is correct, Vanzagger.

If so... what a great ending to such a freakin' crazy saga!

Wow! These Kong threads fill up fast! I was hoping to see some hard evidence this morning...but I'll wait a couple of hours before we get an announcement or this thread turns really ugly. Baldwinzag, I'm praying it's the former and not the later.

If he isn't on campus by tomorrow... things will become more difficult eligibility-wise.

IF this is happening, will BK's family have the same hurdles to a border crossing just to watch their son play at the MAC?

I hope he's on the way here now, and I hope we remember he's another kid who's going to be away from home, enrolling in classes that challenge and make him work hard and getting used to a level of hoops which is likewise foreign.

Let's hope he is truly here and then give him the space and privacy to which he is entitled.

Baldwin, you left out the photo of a balanced federal budget. . .

That makes 3 separate confirmations from (I assume) different sources. Things are looking up...

Bol the new roommate, does not equal Bol the Zag. He can show up to fulfill the basic requirements but things are still being worked out.

If he is, in fact, on campus, that's a pretty big step. So, he could go through all that and there are still obstacles to overcome?

I would assume that all the academics have to be in order and that due to transferring credits over from his studies in Canada plus catching up on his lost classroom time already this semester, those are definitely hurdles that need to be overcome.

This is, of course, all assuming he has actually made it to campus. :confused:

:) Great Samuel Beckett reference. I definitely have to read that again. I think "theater of the absurd" could apply to my many of the threads in regards to Bol Kong, and I could very easily be Vladmir or Estragon in this case.

One of my good friends who is associated with the team has told me that if Bol Kong were to make it to Gonzaga, he would be staying with my friend. Just sent a text to my friend saying "Bol Kong a Zag..?" he replied "Bol Kong my new roommate"

a Bol ?

Bol Kong is a Canadian basketball player by way of Sudan who enjoyed great success on the high school and junior college level. Due to his lack of Canadian citizenship (until recently), apparently an oversight by his parents after they immigrated from the Sudan, he has had trouble in his desire to play college basketball for an American college. Gonzaga recruited him in the hopes of overcoming these immigration issues. Several threads within this fourm are dedicated to Bol Kong's basketball ability and his troubles and travails with the proccess of admittance to the US to become a student/athlete at Gonzaga.
