          Seattle U is the one that fits the conference perfectly, if the WCC decides they bring enough to the table. I have a tough time seeing the WCC presidents wanting GCU.

            SU is a complete no brainer.... obvious choice .... they used to be in the old Conference.....huge media market......3 teams in the Northwest....it is so logical that it won't happen....... please don't tell me about their rpi or net or some other moment in time..... I remember when they played Kentucky for the National Championship.......plus the potential quality of their other sports.......from golf to rowing ... baseball .... soccer.....

              Exactly what are their criteria regarding Basketball. And are they interested in Money? Because GU should be big bucks to them because of our National Coverage.

                If the zags can play their WCC conference schedule over the course of the whole season rather than only the second half of the year, and coordinate some good games during Jan, Feb with Big East, Big 12, Pac 12 teams, etc that would be ideal.

                No more Northern Alabama's. Just play a home game against Pepperdine and pay them the $50K to improve their program, rather than some other buy school.

                Also, play away games at Oracle, Staples Center, Moda Center, Chase, SAP, etc. Rather than high school gyms.

                  What a wondrous mix of delusion and arrogance.

                    I think that the distance will be too great an obstacle to join the Big East.

                    My hope is that the PAC12 decides it’s in their best interests to invite Gonzaga as a basketball member. I know it will take major changes to their policy. But I’m old enough to remember when Gonzaga was a member as a baseball only school (1981-1995). So there is a precedent.

                    My worry is that the big schools are gaining power from the NCAA. I think the future may not be kind to small schools and small conferences.
                    I am confident the Gonzaga administration knows this more than any of us and they will act accordingly.
                    Birds aren’t real.

                      Why give Pepperdine more money? They get at least $300K thanks to the Zags already.

                        That was my thought as well. Or they could sell some of their Malibu property and build a REAL facility.
                        Not even a smile? What's your problem!

                          Pepperdine could write a check for Gonzaga.......$300,000 is walking around money (WAM) for them

                          Those Universities have different priorities.... they are surrounded by Professional Teams and Power Five Teams plus the beaches and the weather..... build it and no one will come......

                              USD built a terrific BB facility, hasn’t helped them much. Just one sellout a year. No pro teams in winter. Great beaches, though not the ‘Bu.

                                I just thought of this. Hawaii does something like this already. It’s a 5 hour or so flight to the mainland. They have been able to manage flying commercial ��
