BYU vs. Gonzaga: No GU Students Wore Missionary Attire; One Dressed As Jesus
Gonzaga students fulfilled the requests of their administrators.
No LDS missionary attire in The Kennel Club
There was a lot of discussions this week about whether or not the Gonzaga student section, The Kennel Club, would wear their traditional attire when BYU came to town and that was LDS missionary attire. You know, the white shirt, name tag, bike helmet. The usual stuff that BYU has grown accustomed to over the years in various arenas.
Gonzaga’s administration asked GU’s student section to not dress in Mormon missionary attire earlier in the week. Apparently, Gonzaga’s student section agreed to that request, because no one in The Kennel Club is rocking bike helmets or white shirts with name tags.
Even though it was something BYU head coach Dave Rose said did not bother him at all.
“You know, students, they are great. It is one of the funnest things about the game, college basketball, is students at the games,” said Rose.
After all, Rose experienced the Mountain West Conference days where SDSU’s The Show and New Mexico’s “Snake” were likely far worse than anything Gonzaga has done since the Cougars joined the WCC in 2011.
There was one Gonzaga student that tried to bring religion into their attire at the BYU-Gonzaga game though. The Zag student dressed as the man above, Jesus Christ. To be honest, that might be more offensive than wearing a bike helmet, but what do I know?
