    Barnes made it to a Final Four and another Elite Eight. If Romar had one of either already, he probably wouldn't be questioned so much around here.


    All things considered, I think Daejon made the right decision. He had two open recruiting sessions and picked the same school twice.

    He's staying home, playing for a coach that has produced NBA players, and surely thinks he can win while in college. The last two were also true with GU, but it seems staying home was the main difference. Can't blame him for that just like I can't blame Morrison or Heytvelt for staying closer to home.
    "After holding open practices during his first three seasons, Romar closed them to reporters last season, citing the "Gonzaga factor." He felt his team was compromised before the 2004-05 game against the Zags, that the opponent awaiting him and beating him 99-87 in Spokane seemed a little too well prepared."

    I can't get over how little Barnes cashed in on 2 years with Aldridge and 1 year of Durant. Any failures Romar has had thus far pale by comparison.

    Changing the topic, but I just thought about Ernie Kent getting to the Elite 8 twice. Not sure that proves he's a good coach, but he did have a couple nice runs in the Tourney. I've seen him compared to Romar as far as rolling out the ball and not being much of an X's and O's guy.

    Daejon Davis has received his release from Washington this morning. Hearing credible reports that Gonzaga is the strong leader for his signature.

    Jaylen Newell also was released and will likely wind up at Oregon.

    There wasn't room without causing heart break. Mark Few and staff are busy at the moment, but they probably wouldn't have made a major effort anyway.

    The young man will be a centerpiece for Stanford. Not a bad decision.

    I think it was all about playing time for him. Stanford could offer more playing time then we could have. Next.

    And in the deal is included a Stanford education. Not a bad move at all.

    I can understand the choice. Stanford may have the most cozy environment in the PAC 12. I'm sure his parents would like that since he's going to school out of state.
    Bonjour tristesse.

    He'll be back as a grad transfer in 3 years, after missing out on the NCAA tournament at Stanford.

    No question we're loaded for the next 2-3 years, I expect we'll be seeing that lovely 8 man rotation of 4 guards and 4 bigs.

    Exactly. Hard to turn down Pac-12 basketball + a Stanford education for the student who can qualify academically. Good for him.

    Agreed, he had to see his playing time would be limited here, ala Zach.
