    Default Gonzaga territory?

    For those who remember the early days of D1, with suspended players and football players filling out rosters, this is stunning :

    We probably need to win a tournament game or two before actually being put in the category of an early Gonzaga-esque team. Cool to see us getting national recognition though.

    To think I was about to give up my season tickets because I pushing 80 years old. It’s like the Wayfair commercial, where the guy is making a purchase choice and finds out Wayfair has free shipping. Game changer!! Caleb is the game changer for me. I think I hang for a few more years

    Although maybe we should get ourselves grounded a little,I also like the excitement and the looking forward aspect to what we can be, that bringing in high recruits to the program can bring. It's exciting times to be a Jackrabbit fan and one can't help but to enjoy it somewhat.This is fun times.

    I would argue that with the success that we have had with Wolters and now Daum, we started the process he mentions in the article already. We've put ourselves toward the top of the second tier of mid-majors.

    It will be years before we are in "Gonzaga Territory " but I dont think it is too hard to imagine this team getting to the Butler territory.

    Didn't Butler make consecutive title games? Everyone needs to take a deep breath. Let's win a tournament game first...

    Take a look at Butler in the years leading up to those championship runs. With the exception of on or two good draws, they didn't have that great of tournament performances. What they did have was a very talented backcourt couple with a very talented 6'8 Gordon Heyward.

    The teams two or three years before those back to back appearances weren't so different from what is being put together at Frost. Granted, with the new way of evaluating teams for the dance, SDSU's chances of getting the type of draw Buter did are very slim.

    But dont use the "win a tournament game first" thing to dismiss what is being built at SDSU
