No respect! No respect!

No respect!  No respect!
More idiots who don't give the Zags credit.  Luke Winn from SI ranked the top 10 hardest non-conference schedule (ESPN commentators say that Gonzaga's is the toughest hands down).  We didn't even make Winn's 'worth mentioning' portion of his column.

Out of his top ten, we play four of them:  Wake Forest (at Wake), Duke, Illinois, Kansas State (in Kansas City).
When cross referencing the hard teams he lists as difficult opponents for the teams he ranks as having tough non-conference schedules he includes: Xavier, Memphis, Washington State, Notre Dame.  Guess what?!  We play all of them as well.  We may not have the strongest conference (even though he includes Portland and San Diego as tough teams to beat, though they aren't at the top of our conference).  Don't forget to throw in Oklahoma State, Baylor and San Diego State and anyone else we might play at the CBE Classic (i.e. Marquette).  What the heck?!
In sum, Luke Winn needs to check his own stats.  What Luke?  You didn't notice that you MENTIONED Gonzaga five times in your article and didn't think that they were 'worth mentioning'?
At least some folks are giving us credit, as the AP ranking and the "Few and Far Between" article referenced by Zach Bell shows.


There's probably a nicer way to say this, but Luke Winn has a butt where his mouth ought to be.
