    Default It's Game Day, the best day of the week. 2/22/20 BYU

    Good morning Gonzaga fans. It's THE GAMEDAY: Gonzaga vs BYU. This is the one we all have been waiting for. I don't know about you, but I'm feeling real good this morning. I was up early and getting ready. Yep! I have my fav Gonzaga gear on. The ones that have won since Nov 13. I got my lucky sweatshirt from Damian. So get up, and get yours on too, and let's get ready to rumble tonight.

    I know our boys are in Provo for the biggest game of the year, but THEY know that WE are here behind them 100%, all across the land and even over seas. ZagNation is READY.

    Go Zags!!!

    Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but if we have to lose a game, I hope it's tonight instead of at Staples Center. It's been so long since we have lost a game, I forgot what it feels like.

    I can tell ya, SorenTodd: It doesn't feel good. I'm hoping I don't have to feel that feeling tonight. Hoping to feel that joy of winning.

    Yeah! You got that right. Just finished that Kansas vs Baylor game. Whew! What a game. Those two teams are pretty tough defensively. Azubuike is a beast.

    You can bet BYU ain’t thinking about Baylor nor Kansas. They’re desperately attentive to online searches for “knocking knee” remedies!

    I'm guessing you remember vividly now what losing a game feels like, especially when the opponent is BYU. Watching that game was the equivalent of a 2 hour root canal without anesthesia. And without dental insurance. The Zags played poorly, but still could have come out with the W had the officiating been even mediocre. Alas, it was not even up to mediocre, it was blatantly one-sided in favor of BYU. And what kind of sportsmanship is shown by the BYU player (Seljass?) who stepped to the free throw line late in the game to shoot the bonus when he was what -20 feet - away from where the foul occurred? He knew he wasn't the player to be shooting the free throws, but up he steps to the line cool as a cucumber, innocent as can be. That takes a special mindset ... one I want nothing to do with. I wonder ... did Coach Pope instruct him to go to the foul line instead of the player who was really fouled? My hunch is that he did. There's losing ... and then there's losing to BYU like we did tonight. This loss was special.

    You got that right, brother. haha It sucks doesn't it. Really sucks. I also agree that if I needed to feel a loss, I'd prefer that it happened last night in a place that I really don't like at all, and have such BAd MEMORIES of.
