WCC in for Special Season, says ESPN's Andy Katz

17

Several things are said in this article that I do not agree with, and the article seems somewhat slanted to favor St. Mary's. A couple things that stand out are : 1. "I think Saint Mary's and BYU will give Gonzaga fits,'' WCC Commissioner Zaninovich said. ....I thing Gonzaga is going to give them fits! 2. "The Gaels, who have fancied themselves as Gonzaga's chief rival, needed another team to chase, to compete with to enhance their constant quest for an improved conference power rating." Erm....that could just as easily have been written to say the Zags needed another team to bolster our rpi, no? It gets old choking out St. Mary's every year, lol. Now we know why we are not doing better recruiting too. According to Katz, we only recruit like 2/3rds of the country, and he makes this sound like a positive. I'd like him to be able to say we recruit 100% of the country. Maybe I ask to much. WCC commissioner Zaninovich is also thinking this might be St. Mary's best team ever. Better than their sweet 16 team. Well, perhaps he has an ulterior motive, because if the Zags were to slip up, and St. Mary's or possibly BYU overthrows us....it will bring a lot of publicity to the conference. Not publicity that any Zag fans would care for, but he sure seems to be tickled at the prospect. Reading this article makes me even more eager to get this season started. I do agree with one thing, and that is with the addition of BYU, it is going to make things a lot more interesting. Let's DO THIS!!~
