Anyone have info as to whether this suggestion of a game has any legs?

"Slonaker [Mercer's coach] said the deal [with the Univ. of Alabama] was delayed after waiting for nearly two anxious months to confirm the deal, waiting for Alabama to officially sign off on it. He was ready to talk about it in June, but ESPN contacted Alabama and Gonzaga about a possible television matchup.

"“I was getting concerned,” Slonaker said with a laugh. “They were always so good about returning phone calls back in May. For about two weeks, I got really concerned it wasn’t going to happen.”

"While there has been no confirmation that an Alabama-Gonzaga game is set, Slonaker said he received written confirmation from UA last Wednesday."

IIRC, there was a suggestion earlier in the year that Bama might come to GU for a GameDay matchup, but I believe it fell through.

hello Zag fans,

San Diego State Aztec fan here. I was searching different sites trying to find out about the Zags Bama game. Aztec fans were told at an Aztec Insider (coaches and such addressing the athletic donors) that the San Diego Slam, which is a basketball double header, was going to feature San Diego State vs. Maryland and Gonzaga vs. Alabama. At the time of the insider it was the AD that broke this news, he said the contracts were not yet signed but all these teams wanted to participate. If you do a little research our school of the four is the only one that has released their basketball schedule, but states their will be another non conference game. Obviously some things are trying to be worked out. Hope everything falls in place as I'd love to see all these teams.


The San Diego Slam has nothing for the 2007 game on their website, not even a date. http://www.sandiegoslam.com/

There is a bit of a discussion on the Aztec board at this link http://aztectalk3.proboards88.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=discuss&thread=1186273422&page=1
