Finally It Happens: Gonzaga in the Final Four!

Free Ira Brown Celebrates, and Celebrates, and Celebrates

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional
The Huge Piece Rules!

There are times when putting together the written portion of the podcast preview is difficult. This…this is not one of those times.

In the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, our heroes dive head-first into the first Final 4 in Gonzaga basketball history. Can we just say that again? The first Final Four in Gonzaga basketball history. Sounds great, doesn’t it?

So what does it mean for the program as a whole? What makes this team different from its predecessors? Was this really the missing link from Few’s resume?

Those stories, plus we take a quick look back at West Virginia (we’re ignoring the bonus Thursday pod last week for Chris’ sake), look at the Xavier game from top to bottom and throw out a number of things we think you should know.

We also have a quick word or two for the trolls before we delve deep into Saturday’s Final Four(!) matchup with South Carolina. How do we match up the East Region champs? How will the size of the Gamecocks affect us? Who’s in the Creature Report (duh)? Are there any concerns we have for ourselves going in?

And finally, we end with a Top 3 which goes all the way back to two weeks ago before raising a glass to the Bulldogs who came before who made this Final Four(!) run possible.

All this and more on the latest episode of Free Ira Brown, THE Gonzaga Hoops Podcast. Do join in on the finality, won’t you?
