  • DZ's Annual One BOLD Prediction Thread

    Because reasons, the annual One BOLD Prediction thread is a little late this year, thankfully not too late.

    You know the drill by now, HOWEVER - we are now forced, forced by success, to add two new rules:

    1. An undefeated Season is no longer considered thatBOLD, admittedly, this schedule is tougher than any. Still.
    2. It is not BOLD to predict a NC for the team that enters the year as the top-ranked team in the country.

    As a mere suggestion, one might focus on BOLD predictions concerning individual players, or even losses. It is also perfectly acceptable to make BOLD predictions about other top-ranked teams or teams in conference.

    Go BOLD

    My BOLD prediction: Coach Few is on a mission after last year's blowout loss. He will get over two technical fouls called on him personally this year.

    Hickman will work his way into starter and be a star in March.

      My shoulder is still slowly recovering, thank you .... having been severely injured patting myself on the back ... after last year's BOLD prediction of Corey Kispert making the "Bill Walton" double/double club ... 1st Team (AP) All American and 1st Team (1st overall) Academic All American in the same year. So I need just a l'il more time before making this year's "pick". GoZags

        The Best Annual Preseason Thread

        Was looking everywhere for this thread. Thought I'd missed it.

        (1) Okay, not so bold -- Zags will win at least 30 games again this season (including six Big Dance games).

        (2) Gigantically bold -- This is Tom Izzo's last year as Michigan State's head coach. Yes, Sparty's legendary coach is in decline, the 2021-'22 season is "it" for the Izzone. His crabby ill-tempered reason, "I'm sick of all the poop college basketball has become, so I'm getting the poop out while I still can poop" (or something like that).

        Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

          This is the TENTH Annual DZ's One BOLD Prediction Thread. Nice job keeping the tradition alive, DZ

          My one BOLD prediction: Holmgren won't be a one and done.

              I'm most appreciative of DZ's intelligent annual contributions!

              I never do astrology/uninformed/praying/wishing predictions, including the score prediction threads (check it!). But I BOLDLY predict that I'll be watching less than half the Zag games at my own convenience this season.

              Not as bold as some, but it's an issue. I could DVR the Alaska Shootout many, many years ago with Dickau killing it (and my Dad paging me, about to bowl over while I'm trapped at work in my clinic), but today, all the broadcasters say, "Pay me exorbitant dollars or eat this sh!t sandwich! I even have a device that will record anything streamable. Doesn't work no matter what if you don't have a feed.

              I'll let you know how I'm progressing.

              Grrrrrrr.

                Two bold predictions:

                1. Julian Strawther wins WCC Player of the Year.

                2. The Big East offers Gonzaga a spot in their conference for the 2024-2025 season.
                “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.”

                  That is very very well done.

                  Please, fellow Zags, brag about past successes.

                  I will brag about the utter failure of my first BOLD prediction: We started this during Gary Bell Jr.'s sophomore year. I predicted he'd lead the team in scoring. That was the year he couldn't hit the ground with a shot.

                  But bragging about success is expected.

                      Two Bold predictions;
                      - Zags will play Duke twice this season losing first game in Vegas and winning the rematch in New Orleans
                      - Andrew Nembhard will be named 1st team AA
                      Even though I care a lot about my basketball opinions, they are like comparing a bicycle to a championship motorcycle who is our coach. . ZagsGoZags

                        Not so bold: Watson narrowly edges Holmgren for WCC defensive poy

                        Bold: We lose 2 games in the regular season and then cut the nets on an early April Monday night.

                          - first BOLD prediction, few makes full use of his talent and we have 9 players averaging 10 or more minutes playing time a game.
                          - second BOLD prediction, razir bolton becomes a vocal, helpful and respected leader of the team

                            Zags LOSE one of the OOC games to a good opponent and could have a second loss to a WCC foe that doesn’t belong on the same floor with them. Both would benefit their national championship ambitions.

                            Go Zags!I

                              Zags do not get a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament, but still win it all.
