Welcome to San Diego. I hope all of you coming down have a great time in San Diego. I have 5 family members coming down from Seattle. All big Zag fans.

It should be a great game.

Unfortunately, the forecast is wretched for the 21st. Partly cloudy, high of 63 (the lowest high for any day since at least late last winter -- forget the beach). Arrrgh! But, stick around you snowbound travelers, the rest of the week is supposed to warm up. Caveat: San Diego, inexplicably, is home to the world's worst weather forecasters. Like, it's so boring they've given up doing the job and spend most of their time applying for positions in places they actually have weather.

The Beach is beautiful at 63 degrees.

Ahhh, I get it....Not as many bikinis. Still real nice. 65 is our favorite temperature.

Here is the mindset of the Aztecs fan. This game is HUGE!!!

It will be a sellout of 12,414 or very close. Most Aztec fans (including myself) do not think we can win this game. Gonzaga is just too big and too physical for us at this time.

Now, there is a couple of things that can turn this game around and we won't know until about half time...

This Aztec team is not the team you have seen in the last 6 years. This is a running team that can shoot the ball...(sometimes). While a little inconsistent in the outside shooting, don't be fooled, the Aztecs can go off any time. IF the Aztecs can shoot well from 3 (which they had their worst shooting game last week in the inexcusable loss to Cal at home), this game could get interesting.

We don't have bulk and bangers...but we are 11 deep with very good players (#11 was a starter at guard for Missouri as a frosh a few years back on a very good MIZZOU team), and a team that can get hot. This is a team that is very athletic and doesn't yet realize how good they can be.

My prediction is Zags by 8 or 10...but anything can happen in this game.

Steve, have heard you have a great atmosphere at your venue. I'm assuming school will be out; how will that effect the proceedings?

School is out but the atmosphere at Viejas Arena will be off the hook. And it should be a decent mix of Aztec and Gonzaga fans. I saw many tix on sale in the secondary market that I am sure many of you ate up real quick.

So prob a sell out with 90% Aztec fans and 10% or slighly more Zag fans. The student section will be pretty full with local kids. We have 32,000 students so their will be plenty.

This is a look at Viejas Arena on most game nights. I think the Gonzaga game will be very similar.

Just a warning for what its worth...

With a pre game at McGregors at 5pm, you guys better plan on taking the trolley to the game.

On big game nights that tip off at 7pm, I have been in a car multiple times (years ago until I learned) at the bottom of the hill (near McGregors) at 6pm and missed the 7pm tip off. Traffic up the hill is at a stand still and parking is near impossible after 6pm so you will have to park a ways from Viejas Arena.

Get the Trolley from the stop right up the street from McGregors and get on a trolley BEFORE 6:30 and you will make tip off for sure.

Have a great time.

I bought tickets in the student section straight from the SDSU ticket office yesterday for $40/seat. Will be fun to be in the opposing student section rooting for the away team.

You will be ok...Security will be high in the student section. It does get a little crazy. Just don't be the aggressor. Security generally does a fairly good job, just stay cool.

And yes I think those $40 tickets just went on sale to today. There is a limited amount released.

Getting neither Kell or Malik Pope has turned out really well for GU.

Kinda' hard to say; there's no way of knowing how their bodies would have held up under the tutelage of Travis Knight

I am not sure Kell practiced today or yesterday. If not I would be very surprised if he plays.

Now Del Mar...Do you really think Kell has been a disappointment. A 4 year starter? One of our leading scorers every year? Plays solid D? Starting on teams that won 27...29...19?

I get it. Everybody has different expectations of players coming in...But Kell has done pretty much everything I thought he was going to do.

Is that rain I see in San Diego tonight? Damn, I didn't expect that.

It looks to be 65 and Sunny tomorrow though.

And the shame with Pope is those 4 year nagging injuries. He is so talented and the ultimate team player.

Keeping my fingers crossed...Malik has been healthy so far this year and playing very well.
