That may be the best BR column I've ever read...

Unfortunately, it will probably only be read by fans of the Zags.

It's the kind of article you paste when the haters come out.

That really is the best BR article I've read. Well done, CJ Moore.

Great article, thanks for posting.

Just as the article, Bilas a noted couple years ago do a great job of breaking down the fact that deep final four runs require "NBA players" and it's good to note that we have several.

Also, Perkins shooting, 3pt average as good as Pangos, almost as good as Wiljer, we just haven't shifted our perceptions of him much b/c he's still thought of as a point guard first (at least in my mind).

Yep.

The best case I have seen for GU yet. The blog references other coaches, NBA scouts, and Ken Pomeroy himself. All believe that GU should be included in the national title discussion. From a pure statistical standpoint, GU is trending on a historic scale. Not just for GU, but for anybody.

With respect to jumping out to double digit leads on just about everyone they have faced (a couple of times a late run has made the score close), the Zags remind me of the "back to back" title team of Florida.

Excellent! Get's me scared and worried too because at The Dance anything can happen and when you've been ridin' as high
as we've been ridin' one loss, if it happens, can tear your heart out and get it run over by a 16 wheeler.

Well, beat SMC. That will help me.........for awhile.

I seem to recall the 2nd Championship team at Florida pretty much sleep walked thru the regular season and lost more games than they should have, but turned it on during the Tourney and pretty much cruised thru.
