    With the start of Football season, Fall baseball, and Fantasy Football you would think one could get a quick break from worrying about the Zags, if only for a second. But the Mods just have to create fake international players who commit, won't be let in the government, get chosen for the national team, and have no real tie to Gonzaga except a T-shirt picture and "Translated" docs from the Google. Bravo on bumping up the hits on this site.

      Germany is down 64-50 with 6 mins left in the game. Elias has fouled out with 3 points, shooting 1-1.

      Ain't this fun, Elias?

      I suppose it would be some sort of NCAA violation if we staged a basketball chivaree, only this time instead of a bride, we snatch up our prized recruit and spirit him over the threshhold at McCarthey Athletic Center. Maybe Dennis Rodman could loan us his wedding dress and veil for a disguise to smuggle him out of Germany to the safety of Zag country.

        Why wouldn't he show up here? I have not seen one single thing in writing that said he wouldn't. Even in articles where his coach is quoted, he says Elias is going to be playing in the USA at Gonzaga U. He will be here. The board has gone bonkers over all this, and it's entertaining for some because they are bored. It's not that entertaining to me. More boring. Im not so sure about Kong. He may or may not make it, but I think at some point he will be here. But I think Harris will be here and be eligible immediately. He will also contribute this year. Things are really not as bad as some would like to imagine.
        Go Zags!!! The Best Is Yet To Come!!!

          While Harris is a versatile player, I see most of his minutes coming at the 4. The Zags just have too many players who can play the 2 and the 3. If Harris doesn't play at the 4, Gonzaga's frontcourt suddenly becomes thin.

            I think everyone here kind of needs to lighten up on Elias. He has the opportunity to represent his country at the highest level of basketball possible. Something tells me that if Matt or Meech was selecting the USA national team at the highest level, and it forced him to miss two weeks of schools, people might react differently. This is obviously a big deal for Elias, and for all we know, he could have an agreement setup that he won't play with Germany after this tournament. Perhaps everyone should relax and be proud of Elias for playing for the German National Team at the age of 20!!!!! That's quite the accomplishment and we should be rooting for him wherever he is playing.

              It's apparent that most people are happy for this guy, Theo.

                  Regardless of any concerns about how the team will fair next fall w/o Elias in uniform, I think we all support Elias, recognize and appreciate his incredible opportunity, and wish him nothing but the best.

                    The Coach likes how Elias is Playing

                    "We showed a very decent performance, and after the effort yesterday against the Turks made a good game," summed up the coach.

                    "I've been aware of the young players today, the early chance to prove himself against a medal contender at the European Championships and they have done their job very well."

                    Especially three players, the coach stressed: "The performance of Konrad Wysocki today was very pleasing, Tibor Pleiss has played great and Elias Harris has done very well. Now we are looking forward to the semi-finals tomorrow."

                      FWIW, I just received this message from Elias Harris via Facebook:

                      Hey, yes i gone to come to gonzaga soon... nice try with your german sentence its almost right... hope all is well!
                      He didn't mention a timetable per se, but I think its good news nonetheless. Seems like a nice kid.

                              I don't think Elias lost an entire season (except portions of 5 games) last year due to an injury that's required an incredible amount of time to recover from. Just sayin'.

                                Am tracking it. Thanks, ZN.

                                A little bird just told me Elias will be at GU Sept. 15-16 and he'll be good to go for the entire season.
