With a number 1 ranking in the offing is this the biggest game in Zag history? If zags win tonight the next game is the biggest game, and each game after bigger than the last.

Nope, every tournament game past the first round is bigger than this.

Still hard to say that the #1 ranking is bigger than any of our sweet 16 games. Of which we only have won only one of them. Tourney games The Big Dance are the biggest of all IMO.

The next time we are in the elite 8 will tie for the biggest game in Zag history

Not really. The Elite Eight game has to verge biggest ever, although this holds heavy implications. Every game is a big game right now. Being number 1 is gravy, but going deep in the tournament is more indicative of a successful season. Being successful in the tournament shows the true quality of a team, since it is win or go home. I know coaches talk about regular season success, but unless the team loses an absolute heartbreaker to a Final Four team, then they will have disappointed. This is a year they should break past at least the sweet 16.

elite 8 or bust (if we are at least a 2 seed).

final 4 or bust (if we are a 1 seed)

it's been way too long since our last trip (to the elite 8)

The biggest regular season game we ever played was in 1994 when we won our last home game of the season, won the WCC for the first time and Fitz cut down the net.

This will be the second biggest regular season game, if we win....

If Zags lose this game maybe makes top 25. If they win it is the biggest game. We've won several conference championships. We've been to the big dance more than a few times. A win takes us to a place Gonzaga has never been. Again, any loss and the games lose importance.

Maybe the biggest this season, so far. We can have the discussion about the biggest game ever come tourney time.

Probably not the biggest BYU game ever. The ones they had against San Diego State in the 2010-11 season were pretty big. And they have three Elite 8s to their name.

Well . . . maybe close, but I agree that SMC was the biggest.

Basically the dance has already started for the zags. Any lose and we could drop from a 1 to a 3 in a heart beat. The media already has 10 teams they would like to leapfrog the Zags with if given a chance.
Tonight and the conference championship are monumental.

When I initially made this post it looked like we had a chance to be ranked Number 1 with a victory. The stars lined up and sure enough we are #1. I felt that each game after that would be bigger than the last because everyone would now watch to see if the Zags would falter. Each win will guarantee a larger audience. Being Number 1, playing the last game of the night in most cases, will assure a National audience unlike any in Zag history.
I have to think Saturday’s game will now be the biggest game in ZAG history.
