    SPOKANE, Wash. - The first day is free.  After that, you're on your own, Zag fans.  Craziness in the Kennel, coming up this Saturday, is the true fan's first chance to see Gonzaga's lineup for the 2009-10 season. This year, perhaps more than in years past, it's wide open as to who on the team will be the go-to guy for the Bulldogs. More >>

SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga coach Mark Few told SI.com the chances of the Bulldogs accepting the University of Washington's proposal to renew the rivalry between the two schools are about the same as Big Foot bearing his child.

It's not going to happen.  At least not the way the Huskies want it.

Few's comments back up what Gonzaga's athletic director said Wednesday. Mike Roth said while he thinks renewing the series that's been dormant since 2006 is a good thing for the state and the Northwest, "it is a series that should be equitable for both schools.  I have always believed it is a game best played on the two campuses."

The Washington proposal called for three straight games to be played at Seattle's Key Arena.

The Huskies canceled what had become a wildly popular series in 2006 after losing eight of the previous nine games.

Few said he would be interested in a home-and-home arrangement.  High profile programs like Memphis, Wake Forest, Michigan State and Xavier have such deals with the Bulldogs.
