    The hospitals in California are overwhelmed and the folks working in them could use a break.

    I would not dream of passing judgement about this decision.

    Time to reconsider a conference bubble in Vegas or Fort Worth. I have a bad feeling that Newsom's going to slam the doors on California in the next 7-10 days.

    Except for a HS hoops tournament on 1/9, Dickies Arena schedule is open until February, all music concerts. Travel would be a snap, direct flights can be booked from most anywhere in the US without the need for a connecting flight. You wouldn't have the distractions offered by Las Vegas, but you'd have plenty of Texas hospitality. Practice venues aplenty, too.

    Plenty of places to play the games, too, to accommodate all of the teams in a 2-3 week bubble.

    If the WCC doesn't act quickly, it will be too late. Travel may be suspended.

    I would love to see the Vegas bubble happen, but we need to be patient if it doesn’t. The WCC and the WCC members may not have the financial resources to do that. Gonzaga is fortunate to have a basketball program that has generated so much revenue for the school. Losing games hurts Gonzaga, so Gonzaga will invest time and money to keep this team playing. Some of these universities don’t have that luxury. This pandemic is putting a tremendous financial strain on some colleges and universities. They may need to conserve funds for other priorities.

    That’s why the league office needs to get on the phone with partners of the WCC, reach out for support.

    Texas is as bad as California if not worse. The hospitals are overwhelmed, even Denton County has fewer than 10 ICU beds available. They would be better off at Salt Lake City or Spokane than anywhere in Texas or Las Vegas.

    TZF lobbying for WCC to happen in DFW area - imagine that :-)

    Would love to see a WCC bubble in Spokane but Vegas and SLC also make sense.

    As long as the Zags get 17 total games played they become eligible for an NCAA tourney, right?

    Not happening in Texas where covid death rate per capita is more than double Washington and Utah. Even higher than California!

    i have a feeling requirements for the tournament will be pretty fluid this year...i'll be curious to see how many conferences tournaments will be held.

    True, it's not good, but the Zags are not affected yet. If some WCC teams have to play 3 games a week instead of two, so be it. Hopefully, all of our teams will get all 16 games in. Let's not kid ourselves, it's a foregone conclusion as to who will win the conference.

    If the Zags win 15 games and are undefeated while being ranked at, or near, the top of almost every metric...they will be in.

    Gonzaga is in now, barring the tournament being cancelled. Look at the accommodations made to get Ohio State into the FBS playoffs. The NCAA needs the storyline of Gonzaga, Baylor to keep interested in the tournament.

    No true OCC and conference just starting so, unless you are projecting what you expect COVID to do to the season, I don't see where you get your numbers.

    Good. I am interested in Zag games.

    In fact, the mods have made a concerted effort to focus talk here on the team and the games so your innuendo offends me and the efforts we have made to focus on the positive.

    Default Saturday’s WCC Slate - Four of Five Games Postponed

    Gonzaga’s game against the Dons is the only one of five games that has yet to be postponed.

    The others are (were) to be played in Cali. They must have tightened the restrictions on sporting events.

    If the teams want to play, they need to find an alternate site quickly, while they can still travel.

    Boise State played a game last night against the "home" team San Jose State at a fitness center in Phoenix. Lots of options out there when you can't have fans anyway.

    I agree. Set up a bubble. The teams are distance learning anyway, so they won't be 'going' toclasses.

    I know that it has been brought up that some schools don't have the resources that Gonzaga does, but could the WCC pick up a bunch of the tab for the schools? They could isolate and then play every other day. It would take about a month to play out the conference (if the figures I am doing in my head are right). They could work out a one time TV deal.
    Just spitballing ideas. I have no idea if they would work.
