as if Olynyk never had a shot blocked in the WCC ...Brandon Davies is better and more athletic than any Southern player ...and there are plenty of others as well

Ireland is far more athletic than any southern guard I saw on the court tonight

WCC refs call more blocking fouls on our opponents. This game was just crazy making. I think the reffing even tarnished the good effort by Southern.

I'm glad I wasn't playing a drinking game using terms about the 1 seed never losing in the first round, I would have been hammered. That was the worst part of listening to these announcers and hearing over and over that the WCC basically has no athletes. I didn't realize Southern was the only team we've played all season with athletes.

I can't think of any.....I thought I heard Few agree courtside that we had not faced bigs like that.

Davies is athletic but a poor defender...he is always out of position and makes dumb fouls...

I am so disappointed that SMC is going home. They came so close, so many shots not falling.

My least favorite quote of theirs:


Announcer: Southern is not playing intimidated.
Gottlieb: There's no reason to be.

This mad me so angry I almost threw something at the TV and thought about muting it for the rest of the game.

Something is really weird with Gottlieb ever since selection sunday. He has turned into a troll.

Not sure if some zags caught him going through their credit cards or if he's really just that much of a major conference homer but gottlieb is pathetic

Nope, he has always been that way. It's just that you're taking it more personally now. He was developing this same style when he was cutting his teeth on local OKC Sports Radio. He gets his talking points and stays with it. It's also part of the CBS Sports schtick. Have you heard their CBS Sports Minutes on the radio? They are always trying to be edgey and controversial.

I have understood his style its just since they got the 1 seed he has been going out of the way to take jabs. Basically just trying to be contrary I guess

why? seems like a sensible thing to believe if your Southern...lets not take things too personal....i hear those things said by announcers all the time when their is a big underdog

2 things the "no reason to be intimidated" comment and the "Hart never makes shots" ignorant tool.

other things...expected rustiness. They haven't played for 2 weeks. Finally got there legs (thankfully).

Saturday will be better.

Will we have to deal with Gottleib again?

They have mentioned twice in the last five minutes, just how much pressure New Mexico is under. I guess there was just no pressure for the Zags. We are just overrated. What a joke.

Wow. Thanks Yahoo Sports' creepy Brad Evans and the bobble head blonde.

Remind me to avoid Yahoo sites for months to come.

If Gonzaga beats Wichita State, they'll put Gottlieb back in the studio. He won't be announcing sweet 16 games.

I wonder if he has bought in to his "Gonzaga is the Notre Dame of BB" thing a little too closely.

We all know that he hates ND (why, I will never know, sounds like they allowed him to keep up the pretense that he wasn't expelled) and since he made the ND-GU link he just won't let it go, its just bizarre.

Then he calls the NM loss and does it with talking up the "pressure" on the Lobos, while not once mentioning the "pressure" on the Zags?????

I actually liked Gotlieb when he had his radio show on espn radio. I hate his guts on CBS Sports Radio. That feelking started way before he started his Gonzaga garbage. he is an idiot on his CBS show. He is obviously trying to be as rude, sarcastic, edgy, idiotic as he can be so he thinks he will be unique. I hate his new show on cbs sports radio. this is all coming from a guy who really enjoyed his espn radio show every day. Oh well, i like the criticism and hatred from the national media. I dont care, the only reason people would waste their energy being so negative about Gonzaga is because they have earned the right to be in a position to be criticized. people dont talk trash about teams or players or people that dont matter. This is part of the process of being relevant. Im cool with it

Hart is a better shot than Doug G ever was.

I am glad, after listening to the talking heads, that I am not alone in being completely ignorant about college basketball. I'm prepping my resume tonight.
