Last Chance? Kansas?



There is still a lot of season to be played, but I think this years team is mentally tougher than teams from years past. This team is off to the best start record wise in school history. Taking out all of the small schools (South Dakota), The combined record of the schools they played is 82-30. Not including the Oklahoma St game, they have a RPI of 8 on ESPN. Like I said, it's early. The Butler game is HUGE. It's one of the last times to raise their profile. After that, any loss is a bad one. Most of you know that going down to play Saint Mary's is not going to be easy. BYU is going to be a dog fight in Provo. Most of the committee will see any loss after the Butler game a bad loss. I think Gonzaga will be favored to win most every game from here on out. I would love nothing more than a huge road win at Butler. Should be a fun ride!

KU vs. Gonzaga on the horizon?

12:41PM ET Kansas Jayhawks

ESPN's Andy Katz points out today that Gonzaga has already passed nearly every test that Big 12 competition has had to offer, with one major exception -- playing Kansas.

That, however, could change in the coming seasons -- could we call it the Micah Downs Classic? Here's Katz with more on what would be a very exciting game on the schedule for Gonzaga and Kansas fans.

Gonzaga isn't afraid to play the nation's best

"Gonzaga's dominance over the Big 12 this season (wins at Oklahoma State, over Oklahoma in Orlando, West Virginia and Baylor at home, Kansas State in Seattle, Texas in a scrimmage in Boulder) begs the question why or when will the Zags play Kansas? KU and Gonzaga confirm there was talk of a series at one point, with a game being played in Seattle. But it never got too serious. The Zags' Big 12 record should be a clear indicator that it would be a top two team this season (behind Kansas) if it were in the Big 12. I used to hate those arguments that a team from outside a power six couldn't hang in an elite conference. Well, Gonzaga should silence that theory."
