    I don't know a) how they were able to land all those guys and b) how they are going to keep them all happy.

    You're right :] I probably don't want to know. I would become some combination of disgusted and depressed.

    I read somewhere that the new Morehead State coach vowed to be "The Gonzaga of the south."

    Bennett, Reinhardt and Birch and two others. That is a REALLY good class, especially for a mid-major

    Many may not agree with this but I believe UNLV will dominate this year and with Bennnett will be a strong top ten program and possibly the BEST team on the West Coast.

    If we had a strong SF, then I think we would be as tough as UNLV and stronger than UCLA as after last year, I question UCLA's heart.

    I believe that UNLV, GU and UCLA will be the best teams west of the Mississippi...just my opinion

    SWZ actually, I was taking in ALL teams west of the Mississippi inconsideration as with our depth and the strength of recruiting by UNLV and UCLA, they far out-weigh those BCS schools as well as SDSU...again just my opinion.

    Baylor and KU lost strong, key members of their team to the NBA and AZ has the pieces but don't know if they know how they will all fit and Creighton has a pretty stout team but believe GU's bench is as strong as any of those teams...also, if we pick up another sharp shooting SF, we will be extremely tough at both ends of the court...IMHO.

    Yup..Yup................you're right...Except for the Jay's, I don't think any have as many returning minutes (Remember KO) as the Zags. I think, come March, all those young teams will be coming into their own.....especially the ones that have better coaches than UCLA and UNLV. I'll leave it up to others to determine who has better coaches......How much we improve during the season will have alot to do with how many weekends we play in March. We certainly have the talent and I think we'll be just fine at the 3....

    Probably illegal benny's.

    Maybe they went the Coach Cal route and started handing out bags of money?

    And Vegas is such a dirty town for stuff like that. I understand how UNLV has some natural draw because of the, ahem, ammenities, but the sudden influx of talent has to catch the NCAA's attention. I watched Baylor start getting all of their recent talent wondering what was going on down there, and they ended up with recruiting violations (granted somewhat minor; too many phone calls, it think). Time will tell, I guess.

    Bennett looks to me like a top 5 pick in next years draft. the explosiveness mixed with a good looking jump shot will land him a high pick, I don't care if he project to be a tweener.
