    Default DZ Eighth Annual One BOLD Prediction thread.

    First college football 2 days away, students on campus in 4. We are 2-4 days early this year because reasons, that's why.

    RULES: There are no rules on the BOLD thread except ..

    1. One can make One Bold Prediction, while slyly sliding 2 or more subtle-like in the same one.

    2. The BOLD rule can NOT be broken.

    3. If your BOLD prediction came through last year, you are encouraged to note it.


    *If you predict a record that has already been predicted, you can note that and make a BOLD prediction.


    Mine:

    2 frosh, 1 transfer and one upperclassmen will make First team all-WCC.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Zags make their 2nd Final Four ... and win at least one game in Atlanta.

    Missed last year's "BOLD" prediction due to the tough Elite 8 loss to Texas Tech.

    Zags get swept by SMC in regular season to finish regular season tied for first place (Gaels win tie-breaker due to head to head wins). Zags are hitting stride at regular season end and TROUNCE the Gaels in Vegas for the Conference championship, securing a two seed in Spokane.

    PUKE ... I hate even typing the first part of this prediction but ya gotta be BOLD

    There will be wailing & gnashing of teeth on the GUB.

    Many players as well as the head coach will get thrown under a bus on multiple occasions.


    (edit: upon review at the monitors, the above comments were overturned as NOT being bold).

    Five experienced starters and BIG minutes off the bench from Timme leads GU to two early season victories over North Carolina, the Battle for Atlantis trophy, and another Elite Eight 8 finish.

    Lots of turnovers the first couple of months. We all start getting a little worried about the team being as good as we hoped, and then they start to gel and everything is roses and rainbows until the refs screw us in the elite 8 game.

    we'll benefit from an incorrect out-of-bounds call in the NCAA tournament.

    Dick Vitale raves about Brock Ravet's playmaking ability, which earns an "are you kidding me?".

    Killian Tillie will make one of those 3/4 court end-of-1st-half heaves during a WCC road game.

    By April, all the talking heads and pundits will be saying... where did this team come from... they were supposed to be rebuilding a bit.

    Think early season will be rough with so many new parts and rotations to figure out... by December they will be a machine and will start an epic run.

    Ballo/Timme/Watson/Ravet will have their names known nationwide.

    My "handle" is two peoples names I can't stand. I combined the two to make one name. I got the idea from Marilyn Manson, where all the band members names are supermodels/serial killers. Twiggy Ramirez, Marilyn Manson, Madonna Wayne Gacy, Olivia Newton Bundy, Zsa Zsa Speck, Sara Lee Lucas etc.
    It's caused me some grief over the years but it is what it is.

    The brakes need much more hydraulic power to reduce the boldness of that prediction.

    I predict that Mr. Kispert will not change the spelling of his first name to Korey, and leave it as Corey.

    Ballo becomes a top 5 pick yet only averages 15 minutes a game.

    Gonzaga will secure up Jalen Suggs and Walker Kessler will commit to Gonzaga. Giving us the best recruiting class in Gonzaga history for the second year in a row and possibly top 3 recruiting class nationally.

    After his unofficial visit to GU in September, Paolo Banchero holds a news conference. He addresses the cameras: "I love my Mom and Dad with all my heart and I respect their athletic history at UW. But I want to go to a basketball school and I believe that Mark Few's man D will better prepare me for the NBA than that goofy zone that Hopkins runs. Also, I'm afraid that what happened to Markelle Fultz's shot may be contagious. Gary Bell Jr. is a righteous dude. Will Conroy has never beaten Gonzaga, as a player or a coach. Huskies suck. Zags rock. I'm cancelling all of my official visits. I'm going to be a Zag."
