    Smart > Tough.

    Everyone loves to talk about toughness, and I think this GU bunch is plenty tough both physically and mentally. But across the sports landscape the teams that win consistently do...

    20 years of evidence that the cupboard will be restocked. I'll start to worry on about Nov 1st, 2021 if there isn't a loaded roster ready to go.

    Great post, agree with you completely. Not my cup of tea, but these kids have a lot of competing interests. It's easy as a fan to talk about loyalty and commitment to your teammates, but the amount...

    Oumar won't turn 19 until this summer. He has moved from Mali to Spain to Mexico to Spokane. After his redshirt year he had a summer that had much less time for competition due to Covid, followed by...

    Poorly phrased on my part, and without surrounding context even more so. The point is, their effort, performance, and precision against Pacific is not at all predictive of how they’d play against...

    The Kansas City Chiefs sleepwalked through the second half of the NFL season, barely winning (yet winning) almost every game by single digits. The majority of the pundits going into the playoffs were...

    A few people have mentioned the "Any team any place" mentality as part of the fabric of Gonzaga basketball to support playing in the WCC tournament. I'd argue that another major ethos for the program...

    I’ve said it before, but the biggest recruiting factor for the Zags moving forward will be NBA success of their alum. That means a great deal to high level HS players. Congrats to Brandon and Rui....

    You are right, and that was poorly stated on my part. My apologies. I should have said that creating a bubble like you talked about would take similar amounts of effort, albeit in a different form. ...

    It's not happening.

    I've believed this for about 2-3 months, and my glimmer of hope has now disappeared with multiple college FB conferences cancelling their season. There is simply no way to...
