Zags still can’tgain respect

Jim Feist is a shining light for including Gonzaga (8-1) among his top 7 basketball teams. Very few even mentioned the Zags among the four No. 1 seeds going to the Big Dance.

Seems to me Gonzaga and SEC regular season champ Mississippi State are being overlooked.

Too much talk about Duke as a guaranteed No. 1 in the NCAAs should the Devils win the ACC tourney. The mass media seems locked on Coach K, St. Joe’s and Stanford with Pitt as the fourth top-seed if they win the Big East tourney.

Gonzaga is ranked among the top 5 in the latest ESPN poll. The Zags deserve a No. 1 seed along with Stanford and St. Joe’s. Unlock Duke, please! By the way, Brent did Stanford/Washington and Celtics/Wolves. Dogs rule!

... Paul Anka wrote My Way for Frank Sinatra, then did a special version for Chuck DiRocco. I think that speaks volumes.
