He's huge, looks very well developed physically. Taller than JP, but maybe not quite as bulky. Looks like a player to me, hopefully things are progressing well in practice and and he's getting used to GU by now.

Yeah, all I've heard is he is progressing faster than the coaches expected and a redshirt is out of the question. As for details, I don't know, just that I hear raves about him. It'll be one of the more interesting things to watch when the games begin.

I have always believed that a typical lineup that included Josh at the 4 and Sacre at the 5 would be a real difference maker. That if Sacre could get in there regularly, the Zags could get past that 2nd round tourney hump.

I'd really like to see that 5 spot occupied by a combo of Theo and Rob. Josh and Pendo/Ira can man the 4, Micah and Austin the 3, Bouldin and Steven the 2 and Pargo the 1.

Did someone request a photo? Thought so ...

Isn't Ira kinda small to be playing the 4?

I really like your thinking - but throw in a little "Big Will" too

I like this, but I'd alter it just a tad. 5 occupied by Rob and Kuso. 4 occupied by Josh and Theo. 3 occupied by Pendo, Micah, Ira!, Austin. 2 occupied by Bouldin and Gray. 1 occupied by Pargo. Note: I see a lot of interchangeable parts that can play multiple positions.

Maybe but it never stopped Pendo and I think Ira's probably even a little stronger than Pendo. I'm sure both Pendo and Ira will play a bit of the three and maybe even a little 2 as well.

I forgot about Kuso Bob. I like that better. Damn, that 3 spot is loaded. Maybe Ira will play more 2?

Has Big Will gained any weight? I mean let's make that guy eat nothing but COG cookies and burgers. If anything he should go to the frosh dorms and just beg for advice on the freshman 15 and then double it!

Will has bulked up considerably, he's about as big around as one of those big sharpies now as opposed to the mechanical pencil he was last year.

I like the scenerio too, but really clogged up at the 3 spot. Ira was obviously brought in as a JC because he was ready to play, just interesting to see where.

Big Will was reported as being 275 lbs at the beginning of August... Hopefully he's put on even more weight since then.

I think the shooting guard and small forward positions are probably just going to be serving many of the same functions this year. It will be interesting to see how the coaches set it up. Ideally, you would like your Gonzaga 2 man to be able to consistently hit an outside shot. The best guys for that are Downs and Gray. Maybe Pendo too with the pick and pop. The problem with having Bouldin at the 2 is that unless he can stick outside jump shots, he really becomes almost like a small forward on the team, but a small forward with exceptional passing skills. Brown and Daye are probably the most natural small forwards as they can score inside and out.

If you ask me, the best pure shooting guard on the team is Steven Gray. He combines ball skills, basketball IQ, a deadly outside shot and an ability to score in the paint to keep defenses honest.

Don't forget that Ira! had a pretty darn good 3 pt percentage too!

Just about everyone on the team can play so many positions. Pargo could be our bb quarterback. Calling plays where everyone shifts position and it could really screw up the other teams defense.

Let's not forget that true freshman rarely get significant minutes at Gonzaga unless there is a huge need or that player is exceptional. Sounds like there are some great freshman but I really doubt that more than one(Austin) see's much time. Team is just too stacked with good upperclassmen and from my viewpoint it seems that's how it works at GU...

All true, however! If we lose several turning pro and graduation next year we will have a team with little experience. They need sommmmmme playing time.

No Kuso? Come on man, give him a little love.
