View Full Version : What are you excited about today?

It's Thursday, and the Zags will be playing at 6:00 pm. I will get to see them on TV on channel 688 on Direct TV. You will need to purchase the college Basketball Channels in order to receive 688. It's a FoxNW channel. I think this is the 3rd game on that channel. I'm glad I bought the sports package for college basketball.

I'm excited to see us play on the road. I think this has been one of the best Zag teams on the road. I think LMU is a worthy opponent and will be ready to knock us off in their house. I really want to see how guys like Matt Bouldin, Steven Gray, Robert Sacre, Elias Harris, Meech Goodson, Manny Arop, Bol Kong, Kelly Olynyk, Will Foster and Grant Gibbs rise up to this challenge on the road. I think the Zags have been preparing all week with mental toughness. The coaching staff has worked extra hard to get these guys mentally ready because that's what is needed. We can NOT relax a minute. We need to go on this road trip thinking we are playing Tennessee and New Mexico.

I am really excited to watch Matt, Steven and Elias, our 3 headed monster. And I'm excited to continue to see that this monster is growing two more heads, Sacre and Meech. The 3 headed monster is suddenly becoming a five headed Beast. The team has really been coming together in the last couple of weeks since that USF loss. USF gave us a great lesson to learn.

I'm so excited to see Steven Gray play his super intensive game on D and just watch in awe as he jumps a mile high. My son went and watched the Zags play a couple weeks ago and he said that he felt the most impressive Zag to watch live was Steven. He couldn 't believe how high he could leap. He said that TV didn't really show how awesome his athletic abilities are. I have this feeling that Steven is just beginning to get his role down on this team really well. He is a great fit to Matt's and Elias' games. And now Sacre's, Will's and Olynyk's too. I like the balance that this team is getting.

I see Steven Gray smiling real big for this one. I think he's going to have a great game.

A multi-headed beast: I think they would call it the Hydra Offense.

I am excited the game is at 9 pm EST instead of 11 pm EST. I am very excited to see a stifling D come out and clamp down. I love our starting 5, but nothing pleases me more than seeing our first 5 off the bench (Will, Manny, Bol, Kelly, and Grant) develop and contribute meaningful minutes.

If the Zags play with intensity on D, this game will be over in the first 5 minutes. I am excited to see a 40 minute effort and the Zags win by at least 18 on the road. What's the name of that sportsbook?
