    I find the posts asking for the thread to stop particularly amusing as the effect is in actuality bumping it right back up to the top of the forum.

    "Drink" is a real misnomer at this point. Many craft brews are in the 6-8% range. I used to follow the limit of 2, but two Belgian Dubbels is like having 4+ Coors Lights.

    I don't agree that this incident will have a significant negative impact on recruiting. As many have noted, all people make mistakes. If I'm a parent of a high level recruit, and I'm guessing most...

    I am as stunned as I am disappointed to read this. Everybody makes mistakes, but this is a big one.

    I think what we will see over the next two decades is a continued divergence of amateur athletics from university and college settings. As painful as that may be, it's already happened significantly...

    Wow. That's got to be Gonzaga's most impressive achievement, which is saying something. We'll soon enough have a starting 5. Simply an incredible accomplishment by these young men, Coach Few, and the...

    Agree, I really found this impressive. Particularly (as Adam pointed out) that he was far away from home, had the option to go play professionally, and had come to Gonzaga at such a young age. Just...

    The tough thing about this question is the answer differs greatly if you're basing it on total contributions to the Zags, Gonzaga peak, total career including pro, or career peak.

    Nice post. I'd add that bigs who can distribute at the level of Jokic or Sabonis are also highly valued. Timme is a tremendous passer which may help his prospects.

    A bit OT, but I've always...

    There's a certain Gonzaga coach that might remember those guys very well.

    Few's game plan was outstanding. Completely neutralized USC offensively and absolutely carved up the zone.

    - Crisp, strong passes
    - Strong hands with the ball
    - Go at Mobley and draw fouls inside
    - Don't settle for contested 3's, attack zone relentlessly

    Yep. Height is but one factor to consider from a physical measurement standpoint and "deficiencies" in height can be largely negated by vertical, quickness, reaction speed, etc.

    Two awful calls on that. It drives me crazy how inconsistent refs are with that call. It's like the common factor is whether the guy driving falls down.

    It absolutely did. The "run out the clock" and stop running the offense with 3 minutes left just ruined a golden opportunity for an upset.
