Any ideas where and when our Presser will take place, or our upcoming opponents? Aren't they typically the day before?

Always curious to listen to opposing Coaches' take on the Zags, especially this gregarious, anecdotal Coach from Fairleigh Dickinson.

Not to mention, hearing whats on our players' respective minds.

Agree. Pre game pressers encouraged. I don’t have the time to find them right this second or I would. I’ll find some tonight and post them here

Not as helpful as a time, but the conferences are being shown on Youtube. At this moment, there are 4 live news conferences.

I will periodically check and see if the zags show up and maybe someone can find an actual schedule.

The NCAA website should have quite a few pressers and other Dance videos. It's a good place to start looking.

Some other good stuff here (https://www.krem.com/article/entertainment/i-dont-believe-gonzaga-exists-jimmy-kimmel-jokes-about-the-bulldogs-on-his-show/293-358d9d99-3fe1-4ac2-bc05-8c083f11aa79) on KREMs website ;) Especially this fun one:

FDU players have gotten NO sleep since winning last night with travel and excitement of winning social media blowing up.

Nope. Was hoping...

Is it a sign he only drank water, covered his mouth to cough, & moved the microphone with his LEFT hand.

Never once moving his right arm...dum dum dummm

While true observation, I think he is fine.

Although, Milehigh been noticeably quiet.

On the same page as you - was hoping for Milehigh to swoop in and save us with good news but...

He COUGHED??? Oh no, the team might have the flu!

Not only couched, he coughed 3 times! Not to mention, obviously sucking on a throat lozenge of some sort....could have been hard candy but either way....not good. Not good at all.

The real question should be, is that a Ludens or a Vicks? If the latter, he MUST be really sick

Mine was a joke - but I can't tell if yours is! I must be really freaking out.

While he did indeed cough, only use his left hand, & sucking on a hard candy of some sort, he seemed completely fine.

Just pulling a Sherlock Holmes with my observations, and taking it to extremes

Greg Herenda's interview was really good. Lunch pail kinda guy. Loved his comments comparing SLC to New Jersey. . .

agreed. cool guy. has great outlook and euphemisms.

sounds like he was feeling the effects of altitude, said he was dealing with cramping. tell tale sign.

felt like a couple times he was calling us "slow", but I think he was trying to say we are just "bigger" than they are used to and they will have to use their "speed" to counter attack our size. something like that...

Canít sleep; March Madness beckons. Just watched Zags, ĎCuse and FDU pressers. My thoughts on those:
- cool seeing Geno and Perks represent. They said all the right things. Hope this tandem shines as brightly on the court together in 16 hrs.
- wow, Frank Howard suspended and not playing for Syracuse. Boeheim non committal as to whether he will be available later in tourney if they win. FirstI heard of this; no idea why he was suspended but sounded like a ĎCuse administration decision not a violation of team rules kind of thing.
- FDU players and coach are confident, unafraid and definitely not just happy to be there. Very likable all around. Coach said their game is to drive w their quickness and get to the rim or kick out for step into your shot 3ís. Defending quick guards is a concern Iíve had for these Zags since last summer. I think itís gonna be a close game actually; hope Iím wrong. Just win and advance Zags!

Thanks. These are factors that are rarely discussed but clearly bear on the outcome of the next game. Should be discussed more.

Coach said their game is to drive w their quickness and get to the rim or kick out for step into your shot 3’s. Defending quick guards is a concern I’ve had for these Zags since last summer. I think it’s gonna be a close game actually; hope I’m wrong. Just win and advance Zags!

Listened to 3 interviews of FDU Coach yesterday. 2 radio shows & press conference.

His game plan is to spread us out, use their quick guards to get past our guards to kick out for a 3 or to the rim.

Essentially, very similar to what SMC tried to do...and did.

Coach Herenda said on Mike Francesa WFAN show that he knows "our guards can get past their guards, yet there are 'trees' waiting underneath the rim".

Says they need to use their speed and quickness, shooting prowess to score.

Seemed confident about game plan. And if course, spoke to the St Marys game as a possibility.

One quote I found particularly interesting by FDU Coach was:


"Listen, Gonzaga is here to win a National Championship, we are here to win one game. Maybe they are looking ahead you know..."

"Listen, Gonzaga is here to win a National Championship, we are here to win one game. Maybe they are looking ahead you know..."

That won’t happen .... especially after the SMC game. More likely FDU will underestimate the Zags. Just like lots of people are doing. These Zags are primed & poised + at full roster. I so can’t wait for game time! I’ve got a strong feeling the Zags are going to fill up the highlight segments after today’s game :)
