The Gonzaga Bulldogs put their perfect conference record on the line against Santa Clara Thursday night in California.  But first things first.  It became evident during practice this week - the week after the NFL Division Championships - this Zags team definitely has an opinion about who will win the Super Bowl.

"Saints.  There's no question," said Robert Sacre, who's father ended his career as a tight end in Indianapolis in 1986. "The Saints are gonna win it.  Drew Brees is the greatest quarterback of all time - better than Neil Lomax or Jim Hart. And that's all I can say."

What?

Steven Gray said he was hoping the Baltimore Ravens would make it to the Super Bowl.  When that didn't happen he reluctantly sided on the side of the Saints, even though Sacre's fandom gets on his nerves.

"Rob's all about New Orleans and that makes it a little tough, but secretly I hope the Saints win.  But I might have to tell Rob that the Colts are gonna win.  I hate the Colts.  Hate 'em."

Hate to tell you, Steve, but the cat's out of the bag now, and you're cheering against the team your head coach likes.

"I'm just a huge Peyton Manning fan for how prepares for games and how he executes during games," explained Few. "There's no anxiety drop-off.  He's just as focused a competitor as I've ever seen."

When told what Gray said about the Colts, Few acted somewhat surprised and deadpanned, "He could learn a lot from Peyton, and Peyton's focus and preparation."
