Gonzaga students take a shot at Cal

I’ve always considered Gonzaga to be pretty harmless. They’re like the hippies of college basketball…they live on the West Coast, don’t really mess with us, and have that one guy with really long, weird hair. And although they’ll likely end up with a #1 seed, I still don’t think many people think they’ll win the whole thing.

I didn’t really mind them at all until this morning, when Gonzaga fans released a “Thrift Shop” parody about their team. First of all, at least it’s not another Harlem Shake…no mas, people. It’s general west coast white people fun until the 2:30 mark, when the main “rapper” says this:

“Calipari be like ‘Oh Kentucky be hella tight,’ I’m like ‘yo, nobody likes you.'”

Sure, it’s a relatively harmless, if odd, remark, but it’s Wednesday morning and I’m feeling salty.

What do you think?

    I can’t recall a time Zaga has done good in the NCAA tourney as a higher seed. Most of the damage they do is a lower seed. I say they will make it maybe to the sweet 16 and they are gone

    The Zags just went from likeable #1 seed, to the hipster douchebags that we all knew they probably were. This video confirms it. That’s pretty much exactly what I thought a bunch of Gonzaga students would look like. From their shaggy beards, to skin that hasn’t seen the light of day in 10 months, to their “smoking hot” girls in the video. I’m so ashamed, Gonzaga fans.

    Enjoy it, gonzaga. Nice trophy case…it’s LOADED AND AWESOME! Almost as empty as I’m feeling for that “rapper.” Again, it’s like someone painting their house [insert poor color choice here]: Someone had to like his/her color choice and someone most likely agreed for moral support. This guy had to love his creation enough to put it out there, and some other d-bag had to agree “Yeah, this is ROCKIN!” Wow.

    I am pretty sure that they insulted Big Ten “pansies” as well. I think it is fair to say that IU, Mich St, Michigan would crush them. Didn’t Illinois beat them?
    As far as who likes Calipari? Lebron James, Drake, Ashley Judd, legions of fans, and- most importantly- elite high school players. If some beardo from Gonzaga does not, that’s okay.

    Ok, I NOW hope the ncaa makes us a 16 seed. PLEASE put us against the zags, please! How great would that be to be the first 16 to knock off a 1, and that 1 to be these knuckleheads. I guarantee the zags coaches and players wouldn’t think the comment about Cal was too funny, if they knew they were playing us next.

    This is kind of funny- Gonzaga has nothing to really speak of but they have become a really good, not great program. Remember when Adam Morrison started crying? Before the game was over.

    I will still root for Gonzaga, love the way they play and Few is a good guy.

    The truth is, people outside the state of Ky should hate us. I can’t stand being around people from KY who talk about how much they love the Yankees and the Cowboys. There are very few reasons for us to like those teams. Ok, maybe your uncle lived there when you were a kid, and he bought you Yankees tickets when you were 10. Who wouldn’t like that. But if your reason is “Man the Cowboys were good/cool when I was a kid”, then just go away.

    So to the point, I expect these newbies to hate us. We are the Yankees of college basketball.

    39 I am a UK and Cowboy fan. Not so much Yankees bc baseball is boring and sucks. I love the Cowboys bc their games were always on tv and I grew up watching them. They had great players back in the day, so yeah, I guess it’s kind of bc they were “cool when I was a kid”. Come on, give us Cowboy fans a break…they have sucked for a long time now and I still love them. I’m not going to be fair weather and stop liking them just bc Jerry Jones is a d-bag and Romo is Blowmo.

    Gonzaga needs to earn respect. Their in-conference sucks, so they need to compensate by playing really tough out of conference. Didn’t Cal do that at Memphis?

    Come on Zags, join one of the really good early tournaments, maybe the Maui Invitational. Convince a good program to do a neutral site or home-and-home series with you. WVU doesn’t count and won’t for a while.

    This video has been watched probably 5,000-10,000+ more times than it would have normally been just because it was linked on KSR.

    To the ‘Zags: I know it’s going to be hard for you, but try to act like you have been there before (even though you really haven’t). The very first time you have a #1 ranking in the history of the school you immediately attack one of the top 5 schools of all time. This is not a good way to start your reign.

    They are just talking about UK not being a contender this year, if you watch they are talking about the contenders. No big deal.
