What do you look for when you compare Gonzaga with other teams? I am particularly currious as to how you compare us against current high ranking mid-majors. Examples: Northern Iowa, Buttler, Siena, Xavier, Temple, New Mexico, etc. I start with an eye test (do they look like a quality team in the airport) and then I look at team discipline; shot selection, defense, execution on offense. Finally I look for athletisism. Memphis had kids who would look like they were launched from a vaulting tramp when they went for layups. But their discilpline and shot selection at times was horrible. Northern Iowa looks like they execute well but they don't look very athletic. What is it that you use to evaluate potential upcoming matchups?

Usually, I check out the (female) cheerleaders first. It's a process that has kept me going all these years.

That's the type of answer that mendiant would expect from the likes of me, and I hate to let her down. ;)

Free throws....can they shoot them, or not?

I don't compare Gonzaga to other mid-majors, low majors, high majors, medium sub-par majors, semi-low majors, medium low sub par high majors, etc.
I just go game by game. OOC, Conference games. Win. Play hard. Be tough. That is all.
