    Default Dan Schulman and Jimmy Dykes on GU

    Schulman and Dykes have the call on today's Richmond vs Kentucky game today. During the game they discussed the early story lines in CBB thus far. Dykes said the best team by far in the early going is Gonzaga, said they are the real deal. He also said GU has the best culture in CBB. He said by this I mean what you believe, how you play, how you treat others, how you treat your teammates, how you work, the value of winning and playing tough, that is my definition of culture. Shulman and Dykes also said GU talent has set the bar for the rest of CBB. You could make an argument GU has the three best players at their position in all of CBB with Kispert, Timme and Suggs. Also, Schulman noted the Zags dropped 102 on Kansas the other day which is extremely hard to do!

    Thanks 116.

    Dykes also said coming in that he thought Baylor had the best backcourt but with Nembhard getting eligible it's now the Zags.

    I heard Shulman and Dykes too and enjoyed it, but calling Suggs best PG in college hoops and Timme best post in college hoops was over the top after just 2 games.

    In fairness they did say you could make an argument, not that they were the best!

    We need to pump the brakes on those kind of superlatives. I’m talking about best at 3 positions.

    There is no doubt, when you evaluate the Zags the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The players have bought into the plan. Like Jake and Elwood, they’re on a mission from God.

    I like the praise but the next couple weeks will say alot. I still want to see more from Nembhard and we played with Timme never getting into foul trouble. We need a big to spell Timme so I'm hoping we figure something out, that imo will be our downfall.

    I don’t know that Garza is far better than Timme but we will see them play each other soon enough.

    Garza is so good. I am way interested to see how GU handles his strength, size, and quickness.

    Zion was/is better than Rui. Not a slight to Rui at all.

    And re: Timme/Garza, as Vulture said, we’ll see soon enough. But I’m sure Drew is more concerned about the W than personally besting Garza.

    In Comparison Luka is to Iowa as Morrison was to Gonzaga. A true game changer and puts up big numbers every game.

    If Timme sticks around for four years he may play at the same level. I'm not knocking Timme. He's a sophomore and Luka is a senior. His numbers are off the chart. As Timme gets more experience and his body gets stronger he will even be more dominant.

    We will see how it plays out. I doubt either has faced a guy as talented as the other. I am personally not convinced that Garza is “far superior”

    ESPN Matchup Predictor has Iowa at a 56.9% chance to win.

    I think that will change between now and then.

    That's gotta be a weird algorithm they use heavily weighted toward the 5 position. Garza is a beast, shooting 87% free throws.

    I know Iowa is very good, as is Garza. I don’t know that comparing stats is telling at all though. Garza has played Southern and North Carolina Central whereas Timme has played Kansas and Auburn.

    If ESPN thinks Iowa is a favorite to beat Gonzaga, head to head, they should have Iowa ranked higher than the Zags. Higher than #1 is what?
    It's not funny.
