Zags coach Mark Few breaks silence on UW’s proposal to renew series

Gonzaga coach Mark Few didn’t mince words when asked what he thought of Washington’s proposal to renew their series at KeyArena over the next three years.
“The chances of that happening are about the same as Big Foot having my baby,” he said in an interview with SI.Com’s Seth Davis. “That’s like me saying, Gonzaga proposes a five-year deal at Spokane Arena. There, I just made a proposal. That’s as logical as this deal [would be].”
It’s Few’s first public comments since the proposal leaked out to the media Wednesday and it’s obvious he’s not happy about the terms of the proposal.
“The series should start in Spokane because Washington canceled the series,” Few told SI.com. “If they want to do a home-and-home, that’s fine. If they don’t, let’s all move on. We have some incredible home-and-home deals right now with Wake [Forest], Michigan State and Xavier. We’re doing a deal with Oklahoma. We have plenty of games, so it’s not that important for us to play Washington.”
It’s also obvious these schools aren’t particularly fond of each other and Few goes on to chastise UW for going public with the proposal and seemingly backing Gonzaga in the corner.
“When they pulled out, I was totally, unequivocally cool with it. Scheduling is hard,” Few said in the interview. “We’ve been down this road many times before. This decision will be made between myself, Lorenzo and the two athletic directors. It won’t get done through the media.”
Let’s hope for the sake of good theatre the banter continues a little longer.
