    An interesting hypothetical, say a highly desirable tx like Cremo states he wants to be a Zag.

    Do we take the very very good bird in the hand, or do we wait until we hear from possible 2 year play and 5-star recruit, Williams?

    I feel like we should be "all-in" on winning the N.C. next year. IF we had a commitment in hand from a guy as good as Cremo, we should snatch it up and close up the spot. The theory being that assuring ourselves of having "one" of them is the primary concern.

    Of course, GoZags rightly pointed out that an entire iceberg lies below the surface we don't know about. I'm just throwing out a hypo for discussion purposes. It would not be an obvious call. But, based on the information WE have it seems like we need one of the two. If the 1 year player said he'd come, I might give up the 2 year player on the basis of assuring ourselves one of those guys for next year.

    Interesting times.

    If it wasn’t for the Perkins injury I wouldn’t think another body was all that necessary or imperative. But we don’t know how quickly Perkins will recover, or whether he can gandle 35 minutes a game. For that reason, a pg that can come in and contribute at a high level could be key.

    i'm excited about williams and think we have a chance -- but if cremo said he'd sign today, i'd send him the papers and not think twice. gotta take the sure thing.

    have their been any updates on flynn? are we even definitively linked with him?

Commiting to Cremo before then would seemingly take Zags out of the running for Williams.

    I’d confirm w Cremo as soon as he wanted to commit.
    Dunno. I have a hard time believing Cremo is worried about B Will. Either would be a huge get but I’d prob lean with Cremo due to experience.
    Go Zags!!!

    In my opinion (strictly gut feeling) Brandon Williams is going to recommit to Arizona not Oregon or Gonzaga. His final three video was posted on April 16th (AFTER the Oregon visit) and the lyrics clearly state that he "isn't afraid to cross that line and pay up fines" and "that's my top three in the order" which is a pretty subtle hint of where he is leaning as of three days ago. The picture of Arizona was #1, Oregon was #2, and Gonzaga #3. My feeling is that the Arizona coaching staff's recruiting pitch have told him the maximum penalty they will receive from this FBI matter is nothing more than a fine so don't worry about any post-Season or NCAA ban talk. I do believe that depending on how the visit goes that Gonzaga will leapfrog Oregon but its not enough even with all the evidence that Gonzaga is the better fit for him that its not enough to pry him away from his childhood dream of playing for Arizona.

    Cremo and Flynn commitments would be my preference.

    I was thinking thay is why a visit hasnt been scheduled, because he is waiting to see where b will goes.

    First and foremost, if that ends up being true about AZ, then very disappointing. That a school would be ok with that kind of dishonesty, and a player would be ok, as well? I hope that's not the case. Would be interested to hear your take on Flynn, and why he's a preference of yours...

    did you seem post directly above yours? if our conspiracy theory is correct, BWill could be Eugene bound since Cremo canceled his trip there.

    Hondo you were there................ But our "snow" dalliance was erased.
    Meanwhile. I do hope Cremo comes. He's an immediate need and a proven D1 player. With the offense Few's running these days, he'd fit right in.

    so, i'm on the record as saying that i think people are reading WAY too much into the lyrics of the song, including listing the reasons why. i am curious, do you have some knowledge or an argument in support of your interpretation? or is it just basically: "hey, there are words here, they MUST be meaningful"? it's an honest question; i can't tell whether your post is real insight or just another poster -- though admittedly a connected one -- falling into the same trap (my interpretation, obviously).

    Just a thought:

    In my mind, the time spent analyzing where the young man's mind is now is near irrelevant, because it appears he will not commit until he has visited GU.

    To me, any order in his head prior to visiting GU is meaningless. He knows and respects the coaches, and has expectations about what a big time program should "look" and feel like. He may visit and see that GU is way more than he figured, may see that the guys are dead serious about winning next year, and see that he could play a role in a FF team at GU (but maybe not at the other places).

    My overworded point is, he won't commit until after a visit. So, he will either be blown away/impressed and sign, or he will not. But, what he currently thinks is all formed without having visited GU, I would expect the school "not visited" to be 3rd on the list.

    I'd rather spend time analyzing how they will sell Gonzaga - whether he thinks he's committed to AZ or UO or not - bc I have a great deal of faith that what we have to offer is hard to turn down, for anyone. Especially, a spot on this coming year's team.

    Cremo highlights. Personally I'm not sold he's the missing piece. Heck of a shooter though.

    He is good though.

    Very creative in the paint, his shot is crisp, clean, confident, automatic. His ball handling looks sound.

    He is choosing b/w Texas, Creighton, Gonzaga, & Penn St.

    I love this kids game. Totally sold, and I'm a skeptical person.

    Imagine the shooting prowess of Perkins. Norvell. Cremo. Kispert in the backcourt.

    ALL potentially over 40% 3pt guys.

    I really hope we at least schedule a visit...and soon!

    As someone who lived many of his formative years in the 80's, I'd recommend listening to it backwards.
