    Should be a good tilt. finally. Our OOC is quite spectacular. Although UCLA was a 10 loss team who finished very strong, Cronin best prepare for the best front court in the country and a back court that is quite experienced ( Nembhard and Bolton) PLUS the two 5 star kids who look like world beaters. Amazing game and made for National TV. Quite the exciting season on the rise. When you're a high major team, these type of games follow. Best wishes to whoever was persistent enough to make this game happen. We win the OOC games and we'll lay claim to another season as a no 1 seed and a No 1 ranking.

    Can confirm Andy’s report here, as I’ve also heard that Gonzaga-UCLA is likely to be a 10 p.m. ET on ESPN that Tuesday night — which is the Tuesday that lands two days before Thanksgiving. Big week for choops. Remember, Maui will be back in Maui and be happening that week, too. twitter.com/TheAndyKatz/st…

    Exactly what I'd like to know, I just changed my flight and I'm not missing tix for this one like I did the Duke matchup.

    Few must know what he has or he wouldnt be scheduling games to this caliber.

    Seth Davis was asked in his mailbag yesterday, if he had to bet on which conference wins it all next year he said "I'll take the WCC. I think the Zags are just THAT loaded." Big statement considering he could pick any POWER 5 conference and have multiple chances.

    UCLA and Duke back to back is a terrific Final Four preview.

    Mow em down one at a time. I don't know about you guys but I loved being No 1 bumper to bumper last year and being a no 1 seed in all measurements include Joey Bracket's missives. We need a title but going undefeated in the regular season twice back to back seems like a big deal. Good team coming up. with the newcomers, I'm not sure how dominating they will be. Watson must come around! He should be a 20/8 guy.

    DOC, My question vs UCLA is can we defend Juazang(?), which we couldn't do in the FF...we do that we win that game...

    Having to play UT and TT...those are going to be tough games...not sure my nails can take it!

    Just for fun:
    Tilt derives from the Old English word tealt or tylte, meaning to totter unsteadily. It isn't surprising that tilting was the early name for jousting, as the sport involves two knights on horseback charging at each other and trying to topple their opponent off his horse. This is the same meaning of tilt as in the eponymous hero's 'tilting at windmills' in Cervantes' Don Quixote.

    The earliest references to 'the joust' (or 'just') come from the 13th century and the alternative name 'the tilt' three centuries later. Henry Ellis edited a 19th century work called Original Letters Illustrative of English History. In that he printed a letter, dated 1511, which includes this text:

    "Knightes shall present themself... in harneys for the Tylte."
    https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/full-tilt.html

    This one misses the mark slightly, but is a nice metaphor:
    Tilting: The process by which blister steel is rendered ductile by being forged with a tilt hammer.

    Stay in Kanab, at the Historic Parry Motor Lodge. It's where movie stars stayed when they were filming movies near Kanab from the 40s. Use that as your base, and you're 30 minutes from Zion, 90 minutes from Bryce Canyon.

    I’m not sure. I think we wait to see who plays defense. Watson is who I’m looking at because of his wingspan and his good defense in the past.

    I’m skeptical Juzang can continue to shoot like he did in the Final Four. It’s a lot to expect of a guy to play a whole season the way he did in the tournament.
