After a long, at times joyful, and at times turbulent offseason, we have finally made it.
While tonight is not the first game of the season, it does mark the beginning of the 2010-11 journey for the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Tonight at 6:30 PST, the Zags will take the court for their first organized practice of the season. Along with 6,000+ rowdy fans, ESPNU will be in attendance as part of their "midnight madness" coverage. The Zags will be a featured team on this program along with Kentucky, Memphis, and others.
While tonight's event should be taken as nothing more than a spectacle, there will be so many fun things to watch if you are a Gonzaga fan. A few of mine...
- Sam Dower...can't wait to see what a redshirt season has done to a guy that could have been a big contributor last season.
- Mathis & Mathis. Aside from a few youtube highlights, this will be the first time 99% of Gonzaga fans have ever seen them play.
- Elias Harris. Personally, Elias is as much fun to watch as Adam Morrison was at Gonzaga. A player with unlimited offensive potential, I can't wait to see Harris at McCarthey again.
