And it's the best day of the week.

Today is the day that I've been waiting for, for a real long time. And I certainly don't want St Mary's to be the team that ends our winning streak. And I FEEL deeply that our Zags feel that same thing even more deeply than we do. There have been some great games in this rivalry and today's game is the biggest of them all. I am more excited today than I've been for any Game Day this year (so far).

I LOVE Game Day because i'm happy from the beginning to the end. I have my Zag gear on, and I'm ready to connect with other fans throughout the day and talk about the game. I'll be ready for sure when that ref tosses up the game ball. Our Zags will be playing in front of a hostile crowd who'll be going crazy as they cheer for their underdogs. BUT deep in their hearts our DOGS will know that the strength of ZagNation is with them,

Go Zags!!!

Game Day at Moraga just showed Bennett out there high fiving the crowd at 8:30 in the morning

what a day for Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and the WCC!

VERY disappointed to see the dude holding the WSU flag was wearing a Gaels jersey. Maybe they wouldn't let him in with his flag without making him wear that jersey?

Disappointed in our Eastern WA brethren.

The Gaels crowd is so angry because all the talk has been about Gonzaga. Barely a word about the Gaels. The espn game day crew voted Gonzaga #1 overall seed in March Madness. I am a little surprised.

Bennett did a nice job. He's probably a pretty good guy, the handshake thing being a regrettable aspect, but other than that.

7 Australians? I didn't know he had that many this year. Those flights from LAX down must get awfully old.

I thought Bennett did great. Fun crowd, lots of love for GU from the game day crew (and love for SMC)

I thought the GD crew was fair and accurate regarding this year's Zags and they refrained from dumping on the WCC (other than to say if GU loses to Pacific or one of the other teams in the WCC, their "one line" is toast - which I'd have a hard time disputing). Disappointed that there wasn't any substantive discussion of the players on either SMC or GU, or style of play. Very superficial look at both teams (GU has transfers, SMC has Aussies, duh). Same stuff that every commentator says when either GU or SMC is mentioned. Still, it was great that GU and SMC are attracting enough national attention to be the GD feature.

This is gonna be a awesome, electric game. Its gonna come down to the end of the game. I think 4-6point game. I believe in this team like no other. Do teams run the table? Rarely. Can this team? Yes.

Go zags!

I'm shocked, the 4th number 1 seed? Wow.

I thought the second one at worst.

Oh geez! I didn't get that. I thought we were the first seed probably because I watched another show this week, it could have been Katz, showing Villanova and GU as the two locks. Something tells me we could stay undefeated and still drop to a two seed.

Agree.

You're taking it better than me. I went all caps, lost it for a minute.

Mine is in reverse. Just finished lunch with the in-laws...3 hours. Big D and his 8 yo cousin are good together for about an hour. I may be going to Twin Peaks by myself.

Recorded Gameday show this morning and just watched it. That was my favorite thing about it: on Gaels' homecourt all they talked about for first 15 minutes is Zags! Wow, wouldn't that just suck if Gameday was in the Kennel only talking about the Gaels? Love it....that's called dominating the so called rivalry.
