It's right there. Prepare well ... execute the plan that the staff (including Ken Bone) has devised.

Get it done, Zags ....

"He's hoppin' mad" .... Dick Enberg after Huggins' 2nd "T" in the '03 opening round game between GU and Cincy.

The classic tantrum and the Bearcat radio guy's ejection are recapped at this link ... http://articles.latimes.com/2003/mar/21/sports/sp-gonzaga21


File this under: Things You Don't See Every Day.
The Cincinnati Bearcats got booted Thursday from the NCAA tournament -- along with their coach and the team's radio color analyst. And, no, he wasn't working for station WKRP.
-----
For a recap of Thursday's action, we turn to Bearcat play-by-play radio announcer Dan Hoard, who described the key moments of second-half action on WLW-AM 700.
Coach Huggins has just been ejected and he's about to be joined by my partner!
It was nuts, all right.
With Gonzaga up, 47-40, Cincinnati Coach Bob Huggins went gonzo on referee Mike Kitts after Bearcat forward Jason Maxiell was called for traveling in the backcourt. Huggins clearly thought his player had been fouled.
Huggins screamed in protest and received a technical for leaving the coaching box. A few seconds later, he was hit with a second technical for refusing to leave the floor. He was escorted away at the 16 minute mark, jawing to police officers as he was led up the corridor.
This is the same Huggins who, last Sept. 28, suffered a nearly fatal heart attack in Pittsburgh, an experience that apparently has not tempered his on-court passion or his hair-trigger temper.
Meanwhile, courtside, Bearcat color commentator Chuck Machock did not wish to confine his feelings to his listening audience. When Kitts got within earshot, Machock blistered the referee with a foul-mouthed tirade.
"That's a terrible call, you SOB, terrible," Machock yelled at Kitts.
Kitts told Machock to pipe down or "You're going to be next," but Machock wouldn't let up.
Machock, a former coach and longtime friend of Huggins, took off his headset during his tirade. Hoard, the play-by-play man, wasn't sure how much of his partner's comments were heard on the air.
Soon, University of Utah official Steve Pyne approached Machock and said, "The NCAA wants you gone."
Mochock protested vehemently -- "What did I say? What did I say?" -- before being escorted off by uniformed officers.
Strangely, Cincinnati seemed to feed off Huggins' ejection.

I'm laughing right now because one of my first thoughts upon waking this morning was, I sure hope GoZags posts his thread, "Beat WV." I opened up my computer to this site and , woh, here it is. ZagNation is ok now.

I'm wondering ..... whether we might give them a dose of their own medicine??? We'd at least see how they handled a press. Plus, it would likely not be something they expected.......

There is no Saturday. Regardless of the game plan....force ours on them and make adjustments from there...not the other way around. WV is legit and they have a chip on their shoulder. There is no Saturday.

What I love about from here on out is none of us will care how we win, just that we win. Win big? Awesome! Win small? Awesome! Win Ugly? Bring it!

Refs can blow 5 Collins goal tending calls each half and I would care not one bit.
