    The media is doubling down on Gonzaga as a final four team even after the loss. We'll see. What if Gonzaga became a true power? What if they won a few titles, and regularly made it to the final four? In that situation, would the Pac-12 try to add them? At that point, they would be a money maker for the conference, and the conference would hate having a western mid-major showing it up.

    Mika had a block on a dunk last night in the final minutes that was tremendous, and led to three TOs in a row by Gonzaga.

    I was happy to see a no-call on that play, because it absolutely would have been called a foul on Collette or Kuzma. I was almost jealous of the WCC refs after that game...

    (For reference, the last 1:48 of the Utah-CU game took almost 19 minutes to play due to fouls/commercials).

    I remember it.

    Collette leads the nation in borderline foul calls. He's in foul trouble every game, but he's not a hacker at all. Nearly every one of the calls is an "I guess" kinda call.

    Nope. They don't play football.

    PAC 12 and WCC refs come from the same pool.

    I'm pretty sure that guy was being facetious. It can be hard to tell on cougarboard, though.

    Question: I was wondering if you could, for oblivious eastern people, if there are any, could you give a tour of your league, like a brief tour, what it's like to play it. And maybe what are a few of the hard spots to go and why they're tough?

And we've been fortunate enough to basically be everywhere."

    Congratulations on having the most intimidating environment in the WCC (excluding Gonzaga).

    I can say from first-hand experience when they handed out those light up glow sticks when Utah played there last time the place was intimidating. Of course that all got undermined when they asked for everyone to give them back.

    I think I told you guys about that. It was the single funniest thing I think I've seen with the crowd at a college basketball game. After the game started the cheerleaders went through the crowd with those big Tupperware storage bins and collected them all back up.

    I guess I was glad to see my tithing money being used wisely.

    Bronco keeps on being Bronco. This time it's his assistants he throws under the bus, not his players. He's "disappointed," you see.

    This happens on such a frequent basis that the rule is laughable. The problem the assistants had was that they allowed their photographs to be taken with the recruits.

    Good point. I just always find it funny when Bronco refuses to take full responsibility for things that happen on his watch.
