  • Results of Close Lose with Stanford

    Well, now we know how our close loss to Stanford was seen by the writers and coaches.

    AP Poll - Unranked to receiving 1 vote
    Coaches Poll - Receiving Votes (59), ranked 27th to Receiving Votes (36), ranked 28th.
    College Insiders - Ranked 9th to Ranked 4th

    In the AP Poll, both BYU and Washington State are receiving votes and are ranked above Gonzaga. Utah is unranked.

    In the Coach's Poll, Gonzaga, WSU, BYU and Utah are all receiving votes with Gonzaga ranked above the other 3.

    In the College Insiders Poll, BYU is ranked #2 with 2 first place votes while Gonzaga is ranked 4th with no first place votes. Utah and WSU are not mid-majors.

    In the ESPN Bracketology, Gonzaga went from not being mentioned, to being listed in the Next 4 out.

    We have a long ways to go, but at least we are on the board.

    The ladies now have a path forward, for an "at-large" bid but it does not accommodate any more loses.

    Stanford just beat #4 Indiana by about the same margin they beat the Zags by, FWIW.

      And today Stanford lost 57-54 to South Florida. Card have been horrible from the FT line the last 3 games, got away with it twice, not today. In a 3 point loss they went 4-12 from the charity stripe. Inexcusable.

      They seem to be having an identity crisis, can't quite figure out who and what they are this year. Last 2 games Cameron Brink has been the majority of the offense, not getting good balance at all. Haley Jones is back, but not starting and not playing particularly well.

        Who can figure out Stanford this year? Beat the crap out of Maryland today. Final margin was 18, it really wasn't that close, were up 30 at one point. Terps are down 2 starters, so take it with a grain of salt, but good win for the Card after struggling lately.

          So Stanford beats #2 and #4 handily and loses to #23 by 3.

          Quite the weekend for the Cardinal.

              As an admitted Pac 12 homer, I have to concede the conference overall has not been living up to expectations so far. Will be interesting to see how the various teams develop as the season goes on.
