Are those he same wagons WYO uses to get to their games? From the looks of it, WYO doesn't even show up.

Orem, UT

A win is a win. Lots of distractions right now. This team will be just fine. Great start to the season.

Can't wait for league play.

Provo, UT

All this tells me is Weber must be very good

Hey Live Hard

"So the wagons are falling off the wagons?" At least BYU has a wagon. At the U, they are on tricycles with training wheels.

Lubbock, TX

Another win against a Utah school. Some wins not as impressive as others will be.

Kaysville, UT

Hopefully BYU can learn from this game. They have a long way to go before they can punch their ticket to the dance.

Didn't Weber lose their best player to injury earlier this year?

Mesa, AZ

Yes, Weber's best player was out. But if you follow BYU basketball, you know that BYU has several players that have been out or slowed down due to injury, including 3 of 5 starters.

Gilbert, AZ

The Weber St. shoes look pretty cool though...

Sterling, Kansas

Coach Rose the Weber defense had something to do with your teams poor shooting. You have to hand it to Weber they loose their best player and have several others that are not 100%. I'd say this that when you had them down they came back on you so give credit that Weber is a pretty darn good young, yes young players that are getting better annd better. They shot the ball poorly also, not just your team. So GoooooooooooWILDCATS!

Ogden, UT

Went to the game last night and Weber played a really good game even without there best player and just like BYU they too have starters that are gettin back from injury. Weber mixed up playing man and then to a zone that looked very good. Got to hand it to both teams, both played a great game.

UNLV just knocked off K-State(rank #11), and SDSU is going great ....wait cougieeees, the thud-whack is coming in MWC!!!!

Salt Lake City, UT

Poor Mid West Ute. Your team stinks so bad that you actually have to depend on other MWC teams to hope for a win against BYU. Poor little Utes. You had your "thud-whack" in the first 3 games of the season.

Interesting reality for an "elite" Pac-12 team...

Boise, Id

A Six point win to a team that had there best player out. Not a good showing by the cougars regardless of what fan base you come from. Utep is not a bad team and if BYU plays the way they have the last two games could lose at home tomorrow night. Early in the year the team looked like a sweet 16 team. The last week they have looked like a one win team and done!

Ogden, UT

I went to the game last night, and after seeing Jimmer in person, there is no comparison: Lillard is a much better and complete player! Jimmer isn't shy about shooting--even when he is off his game. Still injuries are apart of the game, so hats off to BYU for the win. Any time you can get a win on the road in basketball is a good thing, and if you check Weber State's home record through history, you will see it is a tough place to get a win for the road team, so it is a big deal to win in Ogden.

I think the result would have been different had Lillard played. It was a lucky break for BYU to catch Weber State after the Lillard injury, kind of like facing the Bulls without Jordan--but those are the breaks.

I didn't know if WSU would be able to compete without Lillard, but they have no quit in them and look like they will be able to contend for the Big Sky if they play like they did last night! Keep it up and GO WILDCATS!

BYU escaped with a win at Weber State? You must be kidding....you guys thinking they should be ranked...preposterous.

Cedar Hills, UT

@Yferlifer and any other interested...

Just thought you might want to know that Utah beat Weber by 15 and Lillard had 28 pts. Weber at 100%, and byu would have lost.

I think that MWC play is going to open the eyes of many byu fans that think their team is the bomb. Jimmer is a great player but you can only make so many off balance 3's to keep your team in the game.

Salt Lake City, UT

Evidently Utah fans don't know the difference between a win and a loss.

Lehi, UT

Neither team looked very good last night. But for some very hot shooting of 3s the Wildcats looked very tame. The Cougs had a very below par shooting night. Glad to see C Coll back in the game playing better. See you all Thurs night.

Ogden, UT

@ Tommy
Really neither team looked good. That's how Weber State plays, inside-out, they are the Orlando Magic of Utah collage teams. They win from the 3 point line. I'd say for a Big Sky Weber State team playing a 23rd ranked BYU team they played pretty good.... Let's give a little credit where it's due.

Beverly Hills, CA

"After the win, Rose admitted that his team looked fatigued at times on defense. The game was BYU's eighth-straight away from the Marriott Center. They return to their home court on Thursday to face UTEP."

Admittedly, two games were at the ESA, but traveling and going 7-1...

Losing to the Bruins in So. Cal, to UCLA at the Wooden Classic, when UCLA dedicated the game to Coach Wooden, who passed last June, and is family...

I can live with it.

Bring on the MWC. There are other ranked teams, and only one real cupcake (Boylen's group)...
