    Good for him...the situation in the states is just too iffy right now anyway from a sports perspective; this way he can get paid & get playing time where the virus effects have been managed.

    Definitely opens up a lot of minutes for Timme, Watson, & Ballo.

    Everyone wins. He will be on sports center many times. We keep bringing in the best young bigs in the world

    Good for Filip...I hate to see him leave but he is also the player that the Zags are in the best position to replace.

    Sorry to lose him, but given where he's at and the overall situation, I've got to say this seems to make a lot of sense. Best wishes to him!

    Thanks Filip for 2 great years. Congratulations to you and carry on the Zag tradition. Wish you would have stayed but completely understand your decision. You could have been a part of history this year had you stayed and if we play but you will cheer the Zags on from Europe.

    Kind of what I expected on Filip and I hope he has a great career. With the unknowns in the US, even though I expect there to be a CBB season, it makes sense. Great opportunity for our current bigs to step up and take control. Will open up more minutes for Ballo and potentially even Pavel. Guess that answers the question as to who starts between Timme and Watson...that answer should be both now.

    Seems like the staff found out he was leaving by seeing the press release and that he didn't tell them before it went out.
    Gonzaga Class of 2011!

    I think the Zags will be fine...Filip was a great Zag and heading into this season would have been our most proven big, but with that said I viewed him as our highest floor but lowest ceiling of our returning post players...don't get me wrong I would have loved for him to have returned. If Timme, Watson, Ballo & Zakharov live up to their potential we will still have one of the best frontcourts in the country.

    This is a must listen since most of the podcast is about the Zags.

    Yeah, that was a great offering from Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander.

    Smile A bit of a surprise,...

    ...but seems a solid decision for Tru. Sincerely hope he manages to sort out the time & circumstances to earn his GU degree. Wonder how many credits he has remaining.

    Expecting Zakharov & Ballo to factor large in Tru's stead.

    :]

    Sadly, they confirmed some thoughts I had about the advice that was given to Petrusev. I hope he has a great career. It can difficult for gifted kids in every discipline to avoid pressure from well meaning adults, but maybe things will work out for him.

    Wow! The chitchat about our players was fun. We still have a couple of secret weapons.

    Random thoughts of G-League and JSA Bordeaux Basket make me want to pull a blanket over my head.

    That was awesome, but how do you talk about Gonzaga basketball for 20 minutes and not mention Watson once? We are basically adding Ballo, Suggs, Watson, Cook, Strawther and Harris. Losing Tillie, Wooly, Gilder and now Petro will hurt, but if Kispert and Ayayi are back, I like our chances.

    Weird shots fired by his agent toward Gonzaga.
    Bad taste in the mouth.

    We are better now. I actually stopped watching recorded games after seeing a Filip complain to refs every flipping other time down the court. NO other Zag whined like Petrusev, not even Austin...

    He could walk the walk, but Ammo was me first. Not in a pouty way, he just knew he was the best offensive weapon.

    Good piece on Petro leaving.

    For all his strengths, in some ways the Zags make more sense without Petrusev than with him. It’s a strange situation, to be sure. But this is what happens when you’re in the sort of elevated program territory where Gonzaga now finds itself. Year after year, good players show up. Year after year, they get better. Sometimes, your roster is so overflowing with assets that you can’t find enough time on the basketball court for all of them. Sometimes, your best player leaves, and you wonder whether it might not just be a good thing after all.

    Let's be honest. Filip was a good college player in a great program. He in my opinion was soft. Never was a rim protector, had difficulty finishing with contact, and struggled with the ball being taken away from him. At 6'11 he played several inches shorter. This is what separates him from blue blood talent.

    He had visions going pro as a freshman and left as a sophomore. Good for him. This is what he wanted to do. With the upcoming talent and players like Timme and Ballo growing leaps and bounds I'm sure the decision was easy for him.
