WHERE HAVE THE BRAVE HEARTS GONE ?



Blowouts and Gonzaga are not  usually words seen on the same page. What made this year so uncharacteristic, frustrating  and embarrassing ? We can't seem to find the answer but we better. Gonzaga does not  get the benefit of the doubt  This year, despite this team's success and it exceeding expectations, the powers that be, in college basketball have very short and skewed memories, Their spin, we don't belong with the big boys in college basketball and  Duke,  Syracuse and the WCC  loses are their smoking gun. What happened and why ? Is it coaching failures, youth and immaturity, emotional disintegration as opposed to emotional acceleration? I Think  it's all of the above, but most of all it was this team's inability to handle frustration. Remember their faces when things went  bad, you didn't see strength and determination. You saw weakness and futility. Remember Adam Morrison, Blake Steppe, and Dickau's  faces when they faced adversity during a game. They all had  an intensity which was fueled by the adversity. It's easy to succeed  and look like a star when things are going well but true warriors emerge  in the darkest hours. 

BRAVE  HEARTS STEP FORWARD GONZAGA NEEDS YOU !
