    Likely mere dreaming, but if Few could bring in Lee and NWG, wowzers, what a coup.

    At best, he'd be a spot player for AZ.

    well if we do miss out, I'd rather see him in a Maryland uniform, than lose him to Arizona and have to play against him.

    ve RS. Perkins will be the guy. Can Lee play 1-3? How would we balance EM,KD,BA etc. I dont mind having this problem but something will have to give.
    Lee is a 3. It would be Drang taking the hit yet again. I'm fine with it if he is.

    I've always felt Tollefsen acted & thought he was better than he really is...this proves how I've felt. Never interacted or listened to teammates, attempted every shot under the sun, unnecessary reactions, etc.

    He won't do squat at Zona, yet best of luck to his bball future.

    Tollefsen is a damn solid player in my opinion. Don't forget about that LMU kid that transferred to Kansas and ended up being a big contributor. I think Arizona is too deep (deeper than the fore mentioned Kansas team) to use Tollefsen extensively, but I could easily picture the young man getting ample playing time for a most PAC programs.

    I don't see why USF is leaking their best players. Didn't they lose a good forward/center to UW a couple years back?

    Yep, Perris Blackwell. Always a thorn in the side of the Zags while he was at USF. Was okay at UW but didn't excel.

    They also lost 2-3 of their starting guards to transfer over the last 2-3 years---only stand playing for Rexy for so long before you need to get away from him.

    Can anyone speculate on how the process is going to work with respect to the prospective transfers? It appears that there are more than a couple of potentials out there that are looking at Gonzaga, I imagine that the staff has made contact already with those players that they would like to have. I believe we knew Wesley was headed our way before the end of May last year. Is it wrong to assume we may actually be in a position this year to turn away potential transfers because of the success we had last season with Wesley? Will the potential transfers be scheduling visits? Is this a case of first come, first served?

    Each case is different. There really is no set timeline you can go by.

    Being dismissed from the team is the only thing that would make me nervous.

    Go do some digging on Foster - you wont like what you find. He was an unruley headcase at KSU this past year. Maybe Few and Co could get him under control, maybe.

    Please. Look at what mark few has done with headcases. Do you see any problems on campus. Have you seen any on campus since the one incident with Heytvelt and Davis? Didn't think so. Nobody really liked what they saw from Emac last year either. "Headcase, kicked off two teams, transfer, ball hog, blah blah blah"

    Point is Mark Few is like Bill Belichick in a way. You do it the Gonzaga way, or you go home. Its that simple. That's probably the first thing that happens in the visits. if he don't think he can control them, then there's no way he is going to become a bulldog.

    You would be surprised.

    I will say this... many many years ago, there was a transfer that came in, quietly, and had to meet certain expectations during summer classes. He didn't and never stepped foot on the court... Most people never knew he was even at GU at any point. So the GU way or go home thing rings pretty true.

    The risk with Marcus Foster - it addition to the fact that he was suspended 2 different times and then kicked off his team by one of the nicest guys in the coaching profession - is that he wants to be a point guard instead of a shooting guard to enhance his NBA stock. This was a major source of the friction between him and Weber. The problem is that Foster isn't and never will be a point guard at either level. He doesn't have it in him. What he happens to be is a great shooting guard at the college level. I would be surprised if he comes to GU. Josh Perkins is the PG of the future.

    I have tried to keep track of who is considering a transfer and /or uncommitted yet for next year. Here is who I came up with (that is considering Gonzaga).... am I missing anyone?

    BRANDON BAILEY - 6'7" SF out of Utah, de-committed from AZ State.

    DAMION LEE - 6'6" guard from Maryland, graduate transfer from Drexel

    FREDERICO MUSSINI - 6'3" guard from Italy, would enter as a Freshman

    MARCUS FOSTER - 6'3" guard from Texas, Freshman transfer Kansas State

    NIGEL GOSS-WILLIAMS - 6'3" guard from Oregon, Sophomore transfer from Washington

    With the uncomfortable news that we might be losing both Wiltjer and Karnowski, we need more than before some new talent to join the ranks next year.

    Goss-Williams would be a huge catch IMO.

    As to those who are potential transfers, does anyone know when a decision has to be made---or is expected---by these players?

    While that is true, one must also look at how much the upper classmen have to do with keeping somewhat troubled players in line. From the little I've heard, the answer is "a lot."

    And, because of that, I think we have less freedom to do so for this coming year.

    No one would cross Gary and Kevin last year, not unless they wanted to face never seeing the court. But, this coming year, if it is true that KW and PK are leaving, we'd suddenly become very young and, though Few would have a huge impact, the atmosphere wouldn't be quite so stable as this year.
