Arizona at GU: Saturday December 5th

UCLA at GU: Saturday December 12th

WCC conference play will begin this year before Christmas. GU's first three games will be at home (without the students), on December 21, 23 and 28th. I don't know who the first twp league games will be against, I'm fairly sure the game on the 28th will be against travel partner Portland.

I can hardly wait for these two games. It's just so amazing to now be able to get teams like these to come in and play Gonzaga in K2.

3 conference games with no students around? The WCC has done similar to GU before. So lame. Better not be BYU or SMC.

Those are just the games in December. There will be more in January prior to the second semester start on the twelveth.

So 3 in December, maybe a couple more in January. Around half of the conference home games without student section? Ridiculous.

- first I gotta agree, that to have Arizona and ucla come to our home court is really amazing.
- like a #1 seed, another elite 8, this speaks to how far and established our teams program has become.

- as to the conference games while students are on break. I'm going to go against the grain on this one
- first the same disadvantage if that is what many like to call it, happens often enough to other schools in the conference
- second, really people what is our win loss percentage for conference games at home over the last 10 years? gosh its got to be like 95% and i'll bet all of $1 buck none were while students were on Christmas break
- three, call me what you will, I'm glad as it gives die hard bulldog club members like me a chance to see a few games a year.

I was hoping that the Arizona or UCLA game would take place during league play since GU/Memphis won't be playing next season.....however, it just seems since conference expansion that we are seeing less and less teams play non-league games during January/February.

Does anyone know what is driving the scheduling back yet another week? Is it opening up more lag time during the conference season? More chances to play OOC during the league season? Or is the season just set up "earlier" this year with an earlier tourney?

As for GU and games with students away. Obviously with a schedule that begins now in mid-late December, there will be a number of games without students for all schools. The trouble is when they start bunching up front loaded home dates during those days. The KClub is worth 5 pts a game, at least, IMO, over having the Bulldog club. If for some reason there are now 5 home games front loaded, well, that would be quite typical. Other teams draw huge when we visit no matter when we visit, so one wonders....

But, even more than that, if it is front loaded so that 4 out of the first conference games are played without the students every single year, that is patently unfair to our students, many of whom come to Gonzaga in no small part b/c of the basketball experience. Our students went 3 years without seeing SMC b/c of the scheduling "quirks."

I say quirks b/c there is nothing accidental about how the schedules play out. If one refuses to believe that the WCC isn't doing something to attempt to raise the league by dragging us back a little, then one can at least blame TV or something else to do with money. Regardless, the end result (if ours is frontloaded, again), is unfair to our students, and through them, our team - many of our players come for the atmosphere the students bring.

I'm hoping another dangerous A10 or AAC team comes and helps both of us out. Seein temple or Davidson would be just as good or better next year. There's probably a few teams that still might want to.

Disappointing, yes, but what would you suggest they do? As I see it, with an 18 game conference slate they either do as they're doing now and start during winter break (which varies by school) or give the schools a few weeks off and jam 3 games a week into the later Jan/Feb/Mar schedule.

One thing they could do is break them up. Play the Portland game away, and have the home game with Portland later in the season. Then it would just be 2 games. I didn't look at the extended games into January, so it may not really matter, just answering the 'what could they do' question.

The conference doesn't necessarily have GU's best interests at heart (they have to account for 10 schools, and it's not like Portland wants a home game over break either).

The Portland games are usually broken up....Memphis has fallen in the 'travel partner' weekend in February quite a few times.

There are three main reasons for the timing of the conference schedule:

1. Conference expansion. Having a 10 team league lengthens the conference season.
2. The "no four games at home/on the road" rule. Two seasons ago, the first year of having a 10 team league, Gonzaga began the conference season with 4 games at home (Portland had 5). This led to the conference adopting a scheduling rule that teams will not play more than 3 consecutive conference games at home/on the road.
3. The date of the WCC championship. ESPN dictates that the WCC play its championship game on Tuesday of championship week. This means that the WCC loses a weekend compared to many other conferences.

The other option (not palatable imho but done in other conferences) is to go to an unbalanced conference schedule. This would mean NOT playing each WCC school home and home ... And play some twice, some once.

If that would give all home games in front of the students I'd still not want to do this concept.

Number 2 pretty well takes care of my concerns.

I'll still predict that we'll have BYU, and either Pepp/SMC at home before the students return.

I am guessing we are not the only school with a similar schedule. Every year some teams will have more front-loaded home schedules and others will have more rear-loaded schedules. That's impossible to avoid with travel partners. The idea that there is some conspiracy against GU is, to me, ridiculous. You have 18 games to schedule, travel partners, and only so much time to schedule the games. The WCC should always be looking for ways to improve the scheduling, but no school is going to get an ideal schedule when you're trying to schedule games for 10 teams. It's give and take for all.

If we can't do any better with BIS opponents, perhaps further amend the WSU-GU series to a four way rotation: home & home, Spokane arena, Seattle Key. Gives both teams a west-side appearance every four years. Or (perhaps) play the game in Seattle every year. West of the mountain fans/recruits get a chance to see both teams.

Doesn't need to be one of the other 7 teams, does it? Don't those tourneys always have on-campus games that are part of the tournament, but don't play into the actual bracket?

I don't know the people (sources) that some here do. But, what I've heard, through people on this board, is that there was some horrible sheer luck that caused very good match-ups to crash the last couple of years. I believe I heard that one year was the year after the conference readjustments and the schedules had to be re-done, and another year the promoter passed away, or fell through, or something.

So, I don't think the schedule the last couple of years reflects any lack of commitment by the A.D. The problem, as I see it, is whether it is even possible nowadays to schedule a "name" team at that place, at that time of year.

The BiS future is bright. The best estimates now are 3 out of 5 will be Marquee opponents and the other 2 S Alabama-esque (top 100). The goal is 100'percent big time BiS opponents but the reality is that won't happen. Look for a Pac 12 "upper tier" school to be in the BiS soon (perhaps very soon).

Yes, and that comports with what I've read here and then previously mentioned. It hasn't been a matter of commitment or strategy, more just a couple of years strung out where the logistics just didn't work.

We're only 2 schedules away from a tough K-State team that went on to do very well in the Big 12 that year when we won the Big 12 regular season title.

That would be an excellent get.

I have oft wondered why we weren't mining good mid-level RPI games from MWC teams. I know we played Colo State a year ago, but more regular games versus New Mexico, WYO, UNLV etc would seem like a natural fit. Not necessarily for a home and home, but a one timer like Colo State.

The fun thing about past BIS events was that the opponent either traveled well (Tennessee) or had a natural connection to the Seattle area and could generate some fans. I am looking forward to the 2015-2016 season with interest and excitement.

Go Bulldogs!

I guess I wasn't specifically asked "not" to say and we all know that nothing is in the bag until it is in the bag ... but a potential neutral/neutral/home/home would be nice with .... you see? (excuse me while I cough .... "you .... t' AH" ... cough, cough cough). There. I didn't blab. Just had a coughing spell while typing ...

That would be awesome for Jesse Wade & family.

From what I understand (and I could be wrong), he'll be serving his mission at that point. His family should be able to attend though.

I was thinking GoZags was suggesting the possibility of a 4 year series with a home/home plus neutral/neutral.

GU did this with Illinois 5-7 years ago.

That'd be a pretty good series. BIS, Delta Center, home and home?

ONe thing that I find kind of cool, the schools listed in that Bahamas Tourney - Michigan, Texas , Washington, UCONN, Syrancuse, Tex A&M, all some of the public school powers in both Basketball, athletics generally, and academics, especially those first 3. And yet, here we are. I think we stand up on every level, Basketball, athletics generally (more and more) and academics.
