  • Great Primer on Aloysius Gonzaga (Moved from GU Talk Forum)

    As a practicing apathetic, I'm no authority on Catholic history, but I found the following article to be both well-written and informative regarding our school's namesake:

    Gonzaga is the patron saint of youth, which always made him a suitable saint for March Madness. He’s also a patron saint of those who suffer from epidemics and plagues, which makes him sadly suitable as a saint for today’s troubles.
    From the article.
    “No team in the country has a better winning percentage against power conference teams since 2017 than Gonzaga... the Zags are playing above average teams in the best leagues in the country and winning 78% of the time.”

        The name Gonzaga has come to be synonymous with basketball over the years as the university in Spokane, Wash., emerged as that rarest of college hoops entities – a mid-major powerhouse. Some of its fans delight in calling their saint “Aloy-swish-us.”
        Excellent piece on St. Al.

        I'll be honest. I've never heard the "Aloy-swish-us" until this article. Has anybody else?
