    We're also Vegas' favorite to win the 2022 title. It was a rough night, but it seems it remains great to be a Zag.

    Big-10 3 of the top 6 teams ? Didn't they learn anything from watching them in the tournament ? I hope that I don't have to hear all next year how great they are. I would love to have Zach Eady from Purdue though. He is 7'4'' and 280 lbs and has some talent. He is no Will Foster. He already knows how to play a little and can move. If the Zag staff had him, they could make a star out of him. He is so big that if he ever learns to get and hold low post position, he will be unstoppable. Would love to see him in a Zag uniform down the road. He is from Canada, so Andrew ger in his ear and let him know how much fun it is to be a part of the Zag family.

    I'd be happy if the Zags were 5-10, give the guys a chance to breathe post-Covid.

    Vaccines should be generating a lot more freedom by next season ( 7 months). Even though ... we’ll nevermind..

    The rankings to me are overrated. Zags hopefully a top 5 team next year and position themselves in a great spot for a high seed. I could careless if they are #1 or # 3 to start the year.

    Second ten. Not 5. Koach loses a lot and his success on freshman phenoms has plummeted. I don’t think Seth spent a lotta time on this. Telling that K lost out on Kellan Grady, born to be a Dookie. And what is Kellan thinking w Kentucky?

    Coach Cal is a better salesman but what a mistake. I'd so rather have Duke on my resume for the rest of my life than Kentucky.
    Doesn't add up. unless.........$
