They usually wait until March to lose their first game.  This might be a good reality check for their program.

But to be fair, Kentucky just got beat by an unranked team, NC barely survived Gardner-Webb and there have been other big upsets as well.  Looks like it's going to be a wild season.

On one hand, Texas is legit.  No shame in going there and losing. On the other hand, they got torched.

Gonzaga routinely plays difficult opening schedules to make up for their awful conference.

Texas has a very good team this year and the Big XII regular season title race might be decided by who wins or loses their final game.

There are early upsets every year

Ummmmm Gonzaga seems like they play a pretty brutal non-conference schedule, especially the last 5 years or so.
In fact they're playing cupcake Baylor (5) in a few weeks in Sioux Falls. Might have to go check that out.

The unranked team who beat Kentucky a couple a days ago was Michigan State who had lost to Gonzaga a few days before by just one point. And on the same Tuesday that Michigan State beat Kentucky, Kansas beat Duke. So it's already a wild season.

That's the way the ball bounces.

"The major conference scene is shifting rapidly. We should join one of them. Hmm... how about the least stable and weakest one we can find?"

Subby, are you implying that Gonzaga challenging itself with a tough nonconference schedule is something new? Last year they played #5 Texas, #2 UCLA, #5 Dukesucks, #16 Alabama, Washington, and #25 Texas Tech, going 5-1 in those games (L to Alabama). (Rankings are at the time of the game, hence two with the same number.) The year before, they played #6 Kansas, Auburn, #11 West Virginia, #2 Baylor (canceled), #3 Iowa and #16 Virginia, going 5-0 in those games. And so on each year. And of course, in the postseason they've done everything but win a national title.

That said, fark the Zags.

Tennessee beat Gonzaga in a similar fashion in a ppv exhibition game a couple weeks ago.  Their defense really misses Chet Holgrem.

Texas is good. They demolished my Razorbacks by 30 points a couple of weeks ago.

They're now 15-4 vs. the Big 12 in the last 10 years
