    “The Gonzaga Tier” LOL

    We face most of the top teams mentioned early in the season so we will have a good sense where we stands by Christmas.

    The new guys must become a team quickly. 4 amazing guards and 4 superior bigs. It’s enough to win it all. We were short on bigs to help last year and it showed. I do hope Watson gets where he should be. But as a season goes on, we might lose a few by bad luck but we can beat these ranked teams.

    CBS is not the first national publication who has stated that this years team is far above the rest in CBB.

    Okay so the bottom teams are 2500-1 long shots. Two questions:
    (1) Is Wazzu really good enough to be in the 1000-1 range?
    (2) How did SMC wind up 1500-1?
    It's peanut butter jelly time!

    what a joy to be in this discussion for 5 yrs,
    how many of you get discouraged after reading about plague and political problems,
    then read about our Zags next right before going to bed to get that hit of happiness last thing of the day?
    zags tuck me in with a smile every time i head for sleep.

    We are #1 forecast from AP poll as of Aug 17, 2021

    Unanimous #1 in that AP poll....Wowser!!

    Strange that UCLA doesn't even make their top 39 (not even in others getting votes!!!). Is UCLA on any type of probabtion that would keep them off of an AP list? I don't know of any. Any other reason they wouldn't be there?

    That is the final AP poll from last season. The AP’s final poll comes out before the NCAA tourney, they do not have a poll after the tournament.

    That makes sense...there had to be some explanation


    .....although in my (our) defense they have it labeled as a August 2021 updated poll

    Gonzaga should hold that same spot in the next AP poll, the preseason poll.

    Palm has WSU as a 10 seed. Lunardi has SMC as a 10 seed.
