The Gettysburg Address halftime time show on Friday with BYU TV personality Stan Ellsworth was very cool. It would at least be an honorable mention for highlight of the weekend at the Marriott Center.

The BYU crowd also showed up with energy throughout two less than compelling games against teams none of them had likely heard of.

Iowa State, the Cougars' next opponent, is giving #7 Michigan all it can handle as I write this post.

I hope Haws can play (if he is healthy). The Cougars' real second real test will be how they perform against a very good Cyclone squad.

Coach Rose's ability to scout ISU and prepare his players will be on the line this Wednesday night. I look forward to this upcoming game and hope BYU will be ready.

Cougar fans should fill the Marriott Center for this one!

I hate to say it - but when your bigs get 8 shots out of 62 - it shows that lack of balance that is the cougs Achilles heel, again...love to watch the up tempo, wide open game. It's a great game to watch. But what is fun in the preseason, won't win a conference championship. And in the WCC you better win the conference or book tickets for the NIT.
