Unreal...I guess this changes the dynamic of the team for next season, huh?

LINK- ESPN.com story, Harris leaves for NBA (http://www.theschoolforheroes.com/SfHArt/cl_blog/pict_aprilfools.jpg)

With Harris gone, how does this affect recruiting? I never imagined he would be a one and done, but we have to at least be thankful for the amazing year he gave us!




So, just wanted to say....THANK YOU ELIAS!!!! And good luck in the nba.

Haha. I feel bad for playing this joke for some reason. I almost feel like I kicked a tiny kitten or something.


But I'm glad some of you are falling for it. :-)

Good riddance. I was sick of his primadonna attitude anyways. Always complaining, you could tell GU was just a stepping ladder for him. Just think how good he could have been if he had actually tried.

Just before logging in, I told myself "Now don't fall for the Mark Few has left for Oregon April fools joke."

Yet I was still suckered into this one :p

I'm sad to see him go but with the verbal commitments today from Pangos, Bell Jr., and Wiltjer it definitely lessens the sting.

Go Zags!

I then looked at who posted it and carefully inspected the link to make sure it was not a rickroll.

What a way to make the emotions run amuck. Angry at myself for falling for it, even after your email to me to "check the boards". Man, I want to slug WooHoo, but you gotta say, it was executed very well - megga props to MO Zag nut. Then, the elation of knowing we have Harris. My emotions go a little like this: :confused: :mad: :lmao:

Good one. I nearly passed out when reading the thread title. That said, until May 5th(draft declaration day) comes & goes, I won't feel comfortable w/ Elias staying @Gonzaga. This April Fool's "prank" could actually come true within the next few weeks. During Elias' final interview, he said he'll most likely return to GU, yet definitely weighing his options & heavily considering his future in the NBA. I linked the recent article in an earlier post, yet posting from my phone. At this point, we can only cross our fingers & hope Elias returns for one more year. The prank delivered, yet maybe a little too close to the truth...did we just "cry wolf" with Harris future?

Oregon has scheduled a noon press conference to announce their head coach.

I was on the phone with some guy here at work, my heart SANK when I read that, I was speechless, this guy was on the other end and I think he had to say my name like three or four times before he got my attention.
Well played sir.

I enjoy an "April Fools" prank as much as the next guy, but hey that was way over the top. Or maybe it was way below the belt? Either way I think you got us all. Very well done...

JUST DON'T EVER AND I MEAN EVER DO IT AGAIN......

I had to remind myself this whole day that it is April 1st, so don't fall for anything that is out of the ordinary. I did not fall for this one, but had to open it because in all seriousness it could happen...but i am glad it was a prank....so please, Elias, do not get an agent. We all need you for at least another year.

I had assumed that the link was fake and actually linked to this story:

Harris to stay at Gonzaga for sophomore year (http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattlesports/archives/200324.asp).

And no, that isn't a joke!

I was reading through the Zag-Threads I get emailed that recap some recent forum posts and Harris leaving for the NBA was the second post, right after the funeral arrangements for Frank Burgess. I was sad when reminded of Frank's passing then my heart sank when I thought Elias was gone. My heart is still racing, you got me good. I only hope Elias really does return.

It's one the best April Fools jokes because it's so believalbe. I was in our car headed back home from Idaho when my buddy Zagalicious texted me about Harris leaving (the wife was driving). I texted him back, "No!!!" And a minute later I texted, "is this an April fools?" He said that Harris had the same agient as some other guy, and he said to check the 'Boards. I had to sweat it out for another hour before seeing the story here. Damn you, woohoo!

Well played sir.

Actually I had a similar experience two days ago when I was on Espn.com. They had a sidebar article that says, "Harris is declaring for the NBA draft".

It was definitely that feeling where you take something out of the fridge that you know has been in there for months and you slowly open the lid to see just how bad it really is...

Same feeling.

Fortunately it was about Michigan's Manny Harris. Sigh of relief.

Lol, OUCH!!



Yeah, I've been wondering what kind of response this thread was gonna get today or tomorrow from people who are just now seeing it. They may not think it's all that funny since it's no longer April Fools Day! haha
