This. They are fun to root for and mean no harm to us. I went to the old spice classic a few years ago and their fans were all cheering for us because of the Jud connection. It's impressive what they are able to do each year. They should have beat Butler if it wasn't for Stocktons kid screwing up a pass.

Echo that.. I'll always cheer for Gonzaga 'cos of the Jud connection.
I don't care where they're ranked. What worries me is how they are seeded. Don't care if they're ranked in the top 3. What I don't think they deserve is a 1 seed - especially if they take it from MSU.
Doubting Gonzaga is like doubting Pitt.
No matter how good they look in the regular season, they can be relied upon to flame out a couple of rounds too early in the tournament.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
I would be shocked if they're a one seed. You'd have to have some decent upsets in the B1G, SEC, ACC tournaments for that to happen. Something like some combination of Florida, Indiana, Duke, Miami, MSU, Michigan, Kansas, and Syracuse losing in the quarterfinals for their respective tournaments. Gonzaga's RPI won't go up and the NCAA committee uses RPI so much, it would be hard for them to move past being a 2 seed (at best)
And if the good Lord’s willin’,
I’m a keep on chillin’,
refillin’ and flyin’ high
everyone ahead of them keeps losing....and they are in a conference with such powerhouses as San Francisco and Portland so they keep winning. In the idiotic "formula" for ranking, that means they've kept moving up. if this were football they'd still be in the 10-15 range where they belong.
Solid program, but one that is long, long overdue for a deep run. They flame out regularly when seeded highly in the tournament and some of their better runs have actually come when they've been a lower seed. They need to step it up in the tournament. This program should be going farther than second round and Sweet 16s. They made Cinderella popular because they were such a regular. They'll always have that moniker.
Olynyk and Harris will probably both go in the first round of the draft. Not totally sold on their guards but they can bang down low with just about anyone.
Every year there's a "cool white guy" that the media drops to their knees for. This year he's on gonzaga and OMG he has a headband and long hair that he sweeps to the side all the time like bieber. Thats worth some wins right???
One of the most over rated teams in the country if you ask me. Sports Center was talking them all up yesterday after they beat San Francisco U. I doubt they get to the sweet 16 in the tourney.
If Gonzaga gets a 1 seed, then MSU didn't deserve a 1 seed. Between Miami, Florida, MSU, IU, and Michigan we're probably looking at 3 of the #1 seeds. Maybe even all 4. Duke, Cuse, and Louisville all make strong cases with a conference tournament win.
Basically, a lot needs to happen for Gonzaga to get a 1 seed, in addition to winning out. On the other hand, MSU is a lock for a #1 seed if they finish the B1G season 4-1, and is still in a really good position if they're 3-2.
Not worried about 'Zaga in the least. They can #1 in our bracket, and I won't complain one tiny bit. 1) we'll never have to play them anyway, 2) that gives us a good shot at a 6/7 seed in the regional finals.
