    I finally understand the BYU board, but that one gave me a nosebleed.

    Still, reading a few anecdotes, seems like a pretty fair and knowledgeable fan base.

    Well that one guy is nuts. Pretty sure we never lost to UMBC, yet the Southern game did make me cringe lol

    Here's another one regarding our AP ranking. (Also, their board makes sense to me now. Same layout as BYU's, just that the orange icon signifies the OP).

    That board looks to be about 20+ IQ points higher than Kentucky's. Just sayin'

    I've been "visiting" there since '01 .... they are a hoot to follow when Duke or UNC are playing. For the most part a very high IQ group (like Davidson)

    FWIW it appears that some of my "musings" over there have rubbed off over the years.

    Yes, it is so easy to duplicate what GU has done for 20+ years that so many other teams in so-called "weak conferences" have done the same thing year in and year out....oh, wait, no one else has or come close

    Here is the funniest thing... if the Zags WERE to move to a better conference, as if it is that easy, it would only make GU better as it stops being what little knock there is about being in the WCC. Drop GU in the ACC and you don't think their recruiting would go through the roof?

    I mean, based on academic ratings, that's probably about right.

    You da man! There are some elitists on there though. I read the entire thread and still some snobbery, but not remotely close to Kentucky's 'board".

    rellikdog won't let it go. Something about Gonzaga really strikes a nerve with him/her.

    Should GU Boards create separate forum for CBB basketball forums?

    I like taking a spin through them and if they were organized... would be much better.

    Look at his join date. He's just a troll. Probably gets multiple accounts banned annually.

    Fun thread. Tough to throw stones if you're UVA. One of these years their NCAA tourney success will match their regular season success. That's the kind of system that would give the Zags fits, and CTB has beaten Few in the past. Hopefully they are waaaaay on the other side of the bracket this year.

    single orange house icon signify the OP, the blue house icons are previews of responses. You can click on the previews to see the entire post, although an asterisk seems to mean the entire post is short enough to be in the preview.

    I went cruising around Baylor and Arizona boards after we got the (confirmed) Ballo commitment. Expected to see zag hate but didnt see any real recruiting threads at all.
