the best day of the week. This game, this day, is finally here. i've been waiting for this game for a long time. LEI'S GET IT ON.
There's a hope from BYU fans coming from their #1 ranking as the toughest place to play. Man! That really gets me pumped up. #1 team in the nation playing in the toughest place in the nation for a visiting team to win. Don't you just love it?

Even though our boys will b surrounded by 22,000 crazy and wild fans, they will know that there are millions back home and all across America who are rooting for them. As the Blue Blood fans await, along with the basketball analysts, for the results, we ZagNation look forward tp seeing their hearts broken once more.

So get your Zag gear on, and get ready for a great game tonight.

Go Zags!!!

BYU's homecourt advantage isn't that big of a deal - Zags have taken 3 out of 5 at BYU since they joined the league....tonight its going to be 4 out of 6.

Was checking the SLC fish wrap web sites to see if there was any news about Emery. Found these quotes from Coach Rose regarding tonight's match-up:


The coach said he likes the mood of his team this week with the Zags coming to town.

"I think that you can visually see from the guys, just the last couple of days, the excitement and the opportunity they feel," Rose said. "I think that any time you play a team in the top 25, but especially in the top 10, that it brings a real kind of national relevance to the game. I think our guys are excited about that.

"Then you actually kind of dig into what they do, how they do it, and who is doing it and you realize that it is going to be a real challenge," Rose said. "I mean, it is a really good team. Good players, but also the team itself, they play well together. They fit well together. They got a lot of strengths and depth. It is a good team."

Never knew that Rose played on the Phi Slama Jama teams at Houston, until I saw the documentary on ESPN.
