Gonzaga, Washington To Resume Series In 2016

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The drama is over as the Zags and Huskies have agreed to a four-year series...

You now have one less drunken conversation topic to have with your Washington friends at the bar.  Rather than debating who cut the series off with who, we can all now sing songs together as the Gonzaga Bulldogs and Washington Huskies have come to terms on a four-year series beginning in the fall of 2016.

The series will be a true home-and-home featuring two stops at each campus which has to be interpreted as a logistical win for the Zags.  Prior to this agreement, I believe the last reported series was for all games to be contested in Seattle at the Key Arena.  To this, I believe Mark Few mentioned something about carrying big foot's kid.  My memory is a bit fuzzy since it was so long ago, and since I haven't really cared about this series so feel free to correct my error.

As you can probably tell from the first two paragraphs, this news means about as much to me as "Gonzaga agrees to a series with Coppin State" so pardon my lack of exuberance.  To me, this checks one of three boxes of conference scheduling.  The biggest scheduling win is obviously to boost your RPI and overall standing - this doesn't do that.  The second one is that it boosts recruiting - I don't think this really does anything for Gonzaga's Seattle recruiting.  UW will win that battle 90% of the time and...who cares.  The last element of scheduling is something exciting for the fans and/or players - this checks that box so...there's that.
