    Default You Know Your Program has Arrived When:_________________________

    Fill in the blank:

    My choice is that I feel this team can and should beat UW, UNC, Tennessee or anybody. Doesn’t mean they will, but just have that quiet confidence they will find a way to win. Gone are the days where I just hope they will win a tough game against a top program.


    Let’s hear yours!

    You're not shocked to see them ranked number one.

    Duke fans complaining that GU gets preferential treatment from the refs.

    Your Team will win, regardless of the halftime scores.

    Love it...

    I would add - when Gonzaga is mentioned every time Duke is talked about (as in "Duke's only loss is to Gonzaga")

    When the Zags are #1, and you read the comment sections below the various power rankings, and none (or very few) of the complaints are about the GU.

    They have more than 3 wins against the top 25 in one year and none of them are against Saint Mary's. Zags need to improve the .413 win % against the top 25 if they want to talk blue blood. This year is going to be a great start!!

    when you play on an original blue blood's home court and THEY are the underdog.

    When does that happen?

    Favored by -2.5

    Since the season of Gonzaga's 1999 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament run to the Elite 8, Gonzaga has played a total of 91 games against teams ranked in the AP Top 25 Poll. Gonzaga has a record of 38–54 (.413) against such teams. They have beaten top-3 teams five times in all, taking down #3 teams three times (Missouri in 2003–04, and Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State in 2004–05), #2 once (North Carolina in 2006–07), and #1 once (Duke in 2018–19). This includes all tournament games. Zags are 7-1 against a ranked Saint Mary's and 0-1 against a ranked pre WCC BYU . Outside of conference 31-53 .369 win %. Obviously trending upwards since 2015.

    When the team is annually the "Best in the West", and anything less than a S16 is considered a "bad" season.

    Also loved the one about school pronunciation.

    Go ZAGS

    When 2 starters leave with eligibility left, and both are invited to the lottery green room.
