    B)Recency Bias
    C)Great they have more resources for better facilities and real arenas.
    D)That doesn't matter much for me. Gonzaga will stand on its own academically by the standards it holds itself too and the type of student the school is targeting for admissions. Santa Clara and Pepperdine are good schools, but the rest of the WCC is not much to write home about academically.

    In all 'due' respect, we had this on Pacific's board from a poster.... whom I agreed with:

    "I'm tired of Few shooting off his mouth also, but for a little different reason. After blackmailing the conference for two extra out-of-conference games, whom did they play? North Alabama and Cal state Bakersfield! Before that there was UT Arlington and Denver. 'Nuff said."

    So bottom line, IF ZAGS ARE TIRED OF 'USING THE WCC' AS AN EXCUSE, Please go ahead and jump down to the MW or try to revive the WAC! Lots-a-ruck .... and 'kiss most of your athletes in the 'minor sports' GOOD BYE!

    SO look at those mighty games you warmed up with.... I know, Denver was for "Perkins"...yet you didn't even have the Kahones' to play the game in Denver!

    We didn't want the guy anyway.
