Something sort of eerie is going on with the jerseys Gonzaga elects to raise to its rafters.
As with tires, the tread on terms and expressions gets worn after a lot of hard miles. I’d say we’re risking a rash of blowouts here on the old sports thruway, but in fact in all of these cases we’re down to riding on the rims.
So it turns out the West Coast Conference still can teach the Gonzaga Bulldogs a thing or two.
From the warm reconnection with some of his former players on hand to the halftime raising of the banner with his name stitched on it to standing for snapshots with the current Cougars afterward, the good times rolled on Sunday.
