    YOU got scout a few years before me. In my early years on the board some fans compared me to you in your early years. i got banned once too. I always liked being compared to you because your so passionate, and try to be funny. Take care.

    Yeah I remember some of the old-timers that don't post anymore. Wonder what happened to Zagman? I know he really wanted to come to GU.

    I also joined the old Scout Board in December of 2003

    Although I don't post a lot, I visit daily for my dose of all things ZAGS. As a side note, I recently spoke with Adam Morrison who is helping out at MEAD. As we reminisced about former teams and the current team, he thinks this team can go far. I related to him that I went to the regionals in SLC his last year in 2006. I couldn't find a ticket to the second game against Indiana. I used a connection and ended up getting one of the tickets that J.P Batista was allocated. We talked about J.P. and I told him that he was my favorite ZAG center. Adam then told me that he is the most under appreciated ZAG. Not many averaged 19 and 9. He also told me that he was the only ZAG that scared him. Although usually mild mannered, there were a few times during practice that you didn't want to be around J.P. I remember that year leading in to the Indiana game that their center Marco Killingsworth was garnering all the attention. He was a 6'9" 251 pound imposing big man and had dominated his competition. That game, J.P dominated him by getting 20 pts and 9 boards, and the Zags won 90-80.

    Whenever it was that I joined, I will always be grateful to GoZags for telling me about the "secret" board. It has greatly enhanced an already fun journey with our beloved Zags. Thanks GoZags!

    I mostly lurk, have been doing that since 2002. Checked my old Scout profile, and it's no surprise I joined up in March. I've checked the forums almost every day since then. Really grateful for everyone who makes this place hum!

    It's been a good run. A very long run. Seems short though . We never had a Rivals board. Now comes Angello saying we did. COuldn't have been for long. Maybe memory dims. Scout died off but I still manage the poorly attented Scout Board. THAT happened because when we left Scout, they left the board open. You should have seen what trolls were saying about the university and GU basketball. SO, I ws assigned to be the "gatekeeper" and the trouble has stopped. 98-99 season seems a like a distant memory but what a run since then. I know of no other school that's put this type of structure together. It's amazing when a small school somehow breaks into the bigs...........and then maintains the progression. There are several schools that's had a amazing run for a season or two but they always fade. Our path has been truly unique. I know I've never seen anything like it.

    Default I miss those days

    remember the days we used to hand out "rep" and it meant something?

    “You’ve got to hit the Zag standard.”

    And if it happens, those rites of Autumn become the rites of Spring.

    Historically, the first board devoted solely to Gonzaga was a Rivals board that began shortly before the NCAA tournament in 1999.

    The first site that covered WCC basketball, and some GU basketball, was westcoasthoops.com. I was one of the WCC contributors and wrote the GU stories. It was set up by a fascinating guy named Michael A. Miller. Mike Miller was the guy who coined the term "Zag Material." Here's a story on the demise of westcoasthoops...

    1/31/2006 on old scout board though I lurked for a while. Always loved the 'insider' tidbits and rumors plus the comradery of other crazy GU fans on a daily basis!

    Started lurking on the scout board in 2005 but never joined/posted. Before discovering it I'd go over to the Bellevue library once a month or so and go through all the back issues of the Spokesman sports pages searching for whatever Zag tidbits I could find.

    I joined the Scout site on 12-12-01. I'm sure that I started lurking much earlier - like 1999, because I have cloudy memories of it. I can remember watching the Zags play on public access TV in the mid-90's and becoming a fan during the Rillie years.
