NCAA not inviting GU surprises some


The only local news with any fire seems to be Gonzaga's baseball team being snubbed by the NCAA.

Steve Bergum had this story in today's S-R which includes comment from coach Mark Machtolf.

But Steve wasn't the only writer to mention the Gonzaga oversight. The State in Columbia, South Carolina listed GU as one of the three overlooked teams, while ESPN's Kyle Peterson had Gonzaga as the one team left out that surprised him.

From areas where teams got in, here's a San Diego Union-Tribune story about the Toreros hosting, and here's a piece from the Los Angeles Times about the NCAA stupidly placing the Big West and Pac-10 champions in the same region.
