Gonzaga University staff members visited the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night amid speculation that the school is a hoax.
Mark Livingston from Gonzaga Radio and TV, Athletics Director of Fundraising Josh Cox, and Gonzaga play by play announcer Tom Hudson all appeared on the show.
Kimmel showed the Kyle Wiltjer Jersey men sitting alongside the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Spiderman.
If Gonzaga is real, why does it sound so fake? Kimmel said.
Livingston had a response to that question.
We re from Spokane we think you re fake. Matt Damon s fake. Everything in Hollywood is fake, man. Nothing s real.
Kimmel s response Still not buying it.
You should change your mascot from the Bulldogs to the catfish, he added.
Kimmel also referenced Guillermo Rodriguez’s locker room interview with the Gonzaga men’s basketball team on Wednesday. He said the full results of his “investigative report” will appear on Thursday night’s show after Gonzaga plays in the Sweet 16.
KREM Sports Director Brenna Greene caught up with Rodriguez on Wednesday after he spoke with some of the basketball players.
Greene asked him if he had any results into his Gonzaga investigation.
I really don t have an answer https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/johnathan-williams-jersey-c-3..., you know , he said. When I have an answer I will let you guys know.
He did say he found the Gonzaga players arguments a little convincing that Gonzaga might be real.
One of them told me Gonzaga has been there more than 100 years. I don t know if it s true or not, but it sounds like it might be true https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/jack-beach-jersey-c-2.html, Rodriguez said.
He did wish Gonzaga luck on their game on Thursday.
I hope they win and can play on Saturday https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/silas-melson-jersey-c-1.html, he said. Gonzaga!
Guillermo wants the team to be on the show if they win the national championship to prove to everyone that Gonzaga exists.
