What a pleasure it is to watch Jimmer Fredette play ball. With a supporting
cast of great players, I am so excited about this years games. I
too, am disgusted with the MWC and their ties with MTN. I am sure that this was
a key factor in losing BYU as a MWC member. After this basketball season, I
will switch from Direct TV back to Dish since I will not longer need pay extra
to see MTN. I am paying a large premium to have Direct TV just so I can watch
more BYU sports. Next year I will save the cash and still watch BYU, yea!! I hope that I will be able to see Boise State football next year. What
a great team from my great state of Idaho. I live too far away to attend there
games being from Idaho Falls. Darn.
Putting my money behind my desire to watch BYU Sports every month - paying
through the nose to get 'the mtn' every month and even extra for not living
"in the MWC footprint". Elk hunting on Versus and womens ball on CBCS
and the mtn. Guess I'll watch high school football and listen to the game on
the ever powerful KSL! But don't say I didn't do my part to help drive this TV
disaster... :) Something tens of thousands of fans in Utah and Idaho never could
I'm not sure why people are going to this game. J. Emery already proclaimed an
undefeated season so there shouldn't be much intrigue. Just sayin.
jmstokerThis is just another reason why BYU pulled the plug on the
MTN., their refusal to allow other stations to broadcast games that the MTN.
doesn't decide to broadcast.Looks like the brainiacs at the MTN.
decided to broadcast the UCLA at San Diego State women's basketball game
instead.It's our anniversary, so I'm taking my wife to see a concert
version of her favorite movie, so my kids are using our tickets tonight.Say hello to R. for us.
jmstoker, see above "TJ".MWC chose to do this as part of
agreement with "the mtn" at either away or home game. If the mtn chose
not to televise then byutv don't have the right to pick it up. Any games not
being televised at Neutral Site then byutv can broadcast the game. The last time
we got it on byutv against BYU Hawaii was because it was NOT part of regular
season game. Check it out trying at online stream.
JMStokerYou can thank "The Mountain" for that. They mess up all
sports for the MWC, not just Football. You will be able to see more games
beginniing next year.
You don't win 30 games and have only Fredette on your team who can score. If
they have all 5 guys guard him it will turn into a TCU-Utah type of destroying
force for the boys in blue because all the other guys will score at will. What
a perfect first game! Defeating two WAC teams to start the season will set the
tone for regional dominance to start the season.
I listened to the Steve Cleaveland Show on the radio this week. The Fresno State
assistant coach said that they plan to have all 5 guys on the court guard him.
That's quite the compliment and should give our other players some nice shots.
While teams key up on Jimmer, Emery & Davies & Collinsworth 1 & 2
& Abouo & Rogers & Zylstra et. al.,will be adding onto the
season average of 89 points per game.Teams will want to run away
from BYU this year.GO Y
Why doesnt KBYU televise the game?
Fredette is a monster at the college level, can't wait to see him gone. He'll
probably drop 35 on my Utes.He can become a Nash-like player in the
NBA if he adopts less of a scorer mentality and more of a distributor mentality.
He's not going to average 25 per game in the NBA, too many long & quick
players will be able to limit his scoring. But he definately has Nash like
