    Default "The Unclean Sixteen"

    Not quite like most glowing accounts about this year's version of March Madness:

    Ouch!

    Really a reach to find something, anything (however lamentable but irrelevant) to taint GU along with the other schools whose transgressions have been squarely BB or sports related. Yet another reason to be thankful to MF, et al for running a clean program we can all be proud of.

    And the writer didn't even mention that Duke obviously would have been sent packing last night (and many, many nights) if the refs weren't clearly fixing the game. And it's not just Duke that gets favorable treatment. It's getting really difficult to not believe that the broadcasting companies, the refs and even the NCAA are involved. Seriously, UCF was about 20 points better than Duke last night (at least )and still ends up losing even though EVERYONE knows it was a bunch of crap that doesn't come down to just one or two bad "judgment calls" but a clear and defined pattern throughout the game.

    Exactly.

    One might say "low blow" too.

    Nothing basketball related at all, indeed the "actions" occurred 3 decades ago, or perhaps even before Few even GOT to GU.

    Way out of bounds.

    That article, from a Gonzaga basketball standpoint, is pure garbage. Coach Few and the rest of the program are models of class and "doing it the right way".

    Figured they’d mention Lance Thomas getting $100,000 worth of jewelry on credit while he was at Duke. Or Zion’s parents living in a million dollar home in Durham this year. But nope, nothing sticks to Teflon Mike or Aw Shucks Huckleberry Roy.

    It was Oregon Province related anyway, not Gonzaga.

    Nut punching for something that may or may not have happened over 30 years ago make the author look like a sleazy btard. Had nothing to do with the basketball issues of the other teams. Fire him!!! lol
