    Default Wow

    Direct and to the point. Was that Bleacher Report or a Gonzaga fan?

    Default These truths we hold to be self evident...

    It does read like a concise article about the future.My only point of contention is if the Zags get a 9-11 seed, I don't see them being upset in the first 2 rounds. Haven't the Zags generally performed better with the lower seeds (the exceptions being Davidson @ davidson and the ilk)?

    When Gonzaga reached the top ranking in the nation, it saw a spike in recruitment interest and has taken this momentum into the summer.
    This is what I see. Our elite season caused a SPIKE in recruiting interest, not a drop!!

    Just because we lost early to Wichita, doesn't mean recruiting took a drop. Momentum is a big thing and when a kid follows Gonzaga for 5 months and see the growth and success, even if though we lost, they still remember all the good things they saw. Their eyes did not deceive them and only 16 teams make it past the 2nd round. So all those teams just lost their recruiting edge? New Mexico is doomed? So is Georgetown, Minnesota, Kansas St, Creighton, and UNLV... and Gonzaga? Haha. Comedy.

    Some Zag fans are just plain pessimistic and wrong. I may be a pessimist, but I don't hold on to falsehoods when I get facts.

    You have to love the Gonzaga fan. Not satisfied to be affronted merely by common hosings at the hands of ragtag referees, he plows all avenues of discontent. - John Blanchette

    I thought it was interesting in that article to compare Gerard Coleman to Steven Gray. It is true that Gonzaga has gotten little production out of the 3 spot that last couple of years (Hart, Edi, Carter, Barham, etc.), and maybe Coleman can be a big guard as a scoring threat since Bell is undersized as a 2-guard.

    I'm really looking forward to a comprehensive report on the improvements of the entire league. I believe we are in tough this year.
