  • Just re-setting the Gonzaga discussion. 2021 freshman class is top 5 in the nation and team should be ranked top 3 headed into the season,

  • Zags will be loaded again. They just got Nolan Hickman who is from the Seattle area. Gonzaga is beginning to recruit a lot more like the big names.

  • Will be interesting to see what Few can do with such a young roster of players. Very talented and very young.

  • Lots of speculation as to what the rotation will look like. The may finally be able to play 8-9 deep consistently. Personally I'd like to see Harris and Strawther get serious minutes. Strawther can just plain score and Harris is an above-the-rim talent.

  • Damn, I got pulled over in Idaho for doing 90 in an 80 a month ago! Luckily, was on a road trip with no suspicion of alcohol, and the deputy let me off with a warning.

    Zags definitely have an enviable amount of talent. Holmgren and Sallis should be flat-out fun to watch. Hard to believe they still have Timme. I almost feel sorry for some of our WCC opponents this season.

  • I'm not sure Timme's low post game will translate to the NBA. He'll need to get his shot going to really play at the next level.

    It's too bad they didn't take care of UNC, because, that Houston matchup was not something that simply got away from them.

  • I was flipping between the Zags exhibition game on Sunday and the Seahawks. Chet Holmgren is going to be fun to watch. He's a 7 footer with crazy ball skills. Kaden Perry has a little bit of Brandon Clarke in him, will be interesting to see if they can find minutes for him. Julian Strawther is going to be the major break-out dude this year he can flat out score.

    The rest of the frosh I couldn't quite distinguish.

    Grad transfer Rasir Bolton is one fast MoFo and will be hugely important on such a young team.

    Joe Few got in the game, which you won't see again this year.

    This team is definitely a work in progress but they got 10-11 guys who have a legit claim on minutes. Will be interesting and entertaining.

  • Fun fact, Dixie State has been petitioning for yesrs to join the Utah college circuit as University of Utah-St. George, or something comparable. Still hasn't happened, because, Salt Lake has long been embarrassed by the mere existence of Dixie State.

    Anyway, I haven't yet seen Holmgren in action, but for a guy to be listed as 7 ft and only 195 pounds tells me he's due for some massive bulking up. The center position is more about defense than offense, and, he needs to be able to push guys around.

  • Slayed another big school today (Texas). Bring on UNC and Duke next. Schedule makers are giving us multiple blue blood match ups throughout the season regularly now. Zags have been ranked #1 for so much the past several years it basically counts as a national championship. Titles don't mean much in college sports it's more about how long you can dominate year in and year out, and what kind of program you have.

  • Timme dropped 37 on his home state. Zags have another loaded team. Mark Few is the Bobby Huggins of the West Coast and the Pac looks to be UCLA and no one else out west. Maybe Oregon but I doubt it lol. UW stinks again, Wazzu is decent but not a tourney team. I like the Zags finally cutting down the nets next spring.

  • Wunderkid Chet Holmgren didn't exactly tear up the stat sheet. He made an impact on defense, and pulled in some boards, but he didn't do much on offense, and definitely showed that his slim frame is going to be a problem when legit bigs get physical with him. It will be interesting to see how his game evolves as the season moves along.

    Zach Collins made great strides during his freshman year and really came on in February and March.

    Another UW blunder hiring Romar back in the day over Mark Few.

  • Wow, Zags looked fantastic! Nembhard was incredible, Holmgren played his best game yet as well. If they shoot this well I don't think anyone can beat the zags. Looking forward to seeing them play Duke. I would very much like to watch them beat Mike on his farewell tour.

  • Yeah last night was a beat down. It even looked like coach Few had his team pump the brakes in the second half so as not to embarrass UCLA that bad. Zags point guard has a very high skill set. They always have good guards

  • This gives us the green light to borrow a quote from Peter King in his 2014 column where he ranked the NFL teams where Seahawks dominated the top spot: Gonzaga ranks number one, and then we have ourselves a "massive line of demarcation" before we even get to any of the other schools. When was the last time a top-ranked school dominated so?

    UNLV back in the day with Stacey Augmon, Gilliam, Greg Amthony, Johnson and company. Jerry Tarkanian had some really good teams back in the late 80's-early 90's

  • Oh snap the Zags play Duke tomorrow night. Duke is the most hated CBB team without much doubt. Should be a good one at least on paper but Gonzaga has a lot of weapons. Timme, Strawther, Chet, Nembhart, Sallis, Bolton and Watson would be a decent NBA squad

  • Dissapointing loss yesterday. Duke put A LOT of pressure on our guards and they took us out of our offensive rhythm. Nembhard had a poor game but he needs a little help as the ball handling seems to rest solely on him. The banked three to take the lead really hurt GU and the turnovers by Nembhard sunk any real chance at winning.
    Never the less they can learn and grow from it. I have no doubt they could take them in a rematch. In fact I would bet on it. This team is young and Strawther is starting to emerge as a real threat from three.

    25-11 Free throws and foul trouble was the difference. The team who has +11 rebounds,+7 assists, and out shoots their opponent 53.1%-46.3% wins 9 out of 10 times. This game was decided by the foul calls. Which lead to the huge free throw discrepancy.

    I don't compare college to pros, completely different. Think of all the CFB teams that never even had a chance to play for a national title. There's more moral victories in college. The Bills are a franchise with billionaire owners. GU is a rather small private university that nobody outside the PNW knows exists (probably do now though).

  • Zags lose to Alabama. Nembhard is not the answer at PG. At least if we want to win it all. Hickman showed some promise but I doubt Few takes the reigns from Nembhard and gives it to a freshman.
