Sulking (http://www.southbendtribune.com/article/20101210/SPORTS13/101219966/1130) over the college basketball season's first setback was not an option for No. 23 Notre Dame, which had only one full day of practice between Wednesday's loss to Kentucky and Saturday's home game against Gonzaga.

Coach Few is just as upset and frustrated as we are:

“No question the schedule that we're playing is brutal,” Few said. “There are only a few teams nationally that could take it on, and we're clearly not one out them.

Another good article titled, "What's wrong with Gonzaga?" can be read HERE (http://www.southbendtribune.com/article/20101210/SPORTS13/101219965).

And know that come March, the Bulldogs just might benefit from racking up all the frequent-flyer miles to play against all different styles. There have been low points and losses now, but the Bulldogs bank on turning that into success when it matters.

“You take every game, build on it, and get better. By the time the end of the season arrives, you're rolling,” Gray said. “That's where the good teams make their mark in college basketball.”

The last week has been particularly brutal. Gonzaga ventured across the state and fell out of the national rankings with a loss to Illinois at the “Battle in Seattle,” then returned to campus for final exams. Wednesday's journey to Pullman broke the monotony of academics before Friday's cross-country trek.

Finals were this week? That explains it.

Gonzaga is Notre Dame's marquee non-conference game?
