The tantalizing intro:

"For all the recent history of Gonzaga basketball that both instills pride of ownership and casts a weighty burden for each successive team, an instructive nugget:

In 2007, the West Coast Conference regular season chugged into its final weekend with the Bulldogs trailing Santa Clara by a game in the standings, on the road for a pair against the middle of the order and without their gifted big man, suspended after a drug arrest. The Broncos, meanwhile, were matched against the league’s two worst teams.

Game, set and … not so fast.

The Zags swept; the Broncos swooned. Gonzaga had another title in a run that has since reached 10, second only to the UCLA dynasty in terms of conference chokeholds. And the Church of It Ain’t Over ’Til It’s Over had a host of delirious new converts.

So, grab a pew."

Good stuff, and this year Zags control their destiny in the last week. But did he have to use the words UCLA and choke in the same paragraph? :(

Not only do players read these boards, but the coaches do too.

Quoting SF head coach:

Every once in a while I’ll read Dons Central (a fan website) and they’ll complain about Zag fans saying, ‘Our bench guys can start on other teams.’ Well, he’s one of those guys who could actually do it. He’s going to be really good.”

Wow, it's cool AND surprising that the coach admits he reads DonsCentral.

Woohoo, you need to read it sometime. It may not be as cool as you think. Surprising, yes.
