BYU won. Jimmer scored 34, Big Three played well. Another W for Y.
Fresno Pacific was scheduled simply as a filler for BYU to scrimmage against
instead of having a week off before facing UNLV in their conference opener.Sagarin ranks BYU's SOS at 68, which is higher than every other team in
high Top 20 except Georgetown at 12. Sagarin's Top 51.
Kansas(132)2. Ohio St(292)3. Duke(205)4. BYU(68)5.
Georgetown(12)btw, Utah started with their Division II filler, Grand
Canyon, to give all of those JC transfers a chance to start melding as a team
before the Utes played their first Division I opponent.37. Utah
Best of luck to Coach Rose and the team. Looking forward to reading the game
highlights! Go Cougars!
Can't wait until we're out of the Mountain West so these "big" games
can be televised! If we can somehow get past Buffalo, then Fresno Pacific
lurks. They are dangerous!
Two more cupcakes before the conference season begins. Fresno Pacific? What's
Did a little bit of research. BYUs opponents this year including Buffalo are
109-71. The neutral opponents are 55-23 and the road are 22-13. The schedule
hasn't necessarily been murderer's row, but their is a lot of quality.
Rayburn should have mentioned in his article that those stats listed have been
earned against like Navy, Youngstown St., Towson, Canisius, Indiana St. (a
loss), Army (two point win)...Buffalo will have a difficult time
dealing with the D that BYU brings. I'm glad Rose treats every game like its a
championship because everybody gets up to play the Cougs, but BYU should be able
to control this game and win by a comfortable margin.
Need some answers Jim Rayburn:Is the absence of TV contractual or
economic? If a TV station wanted to air it would they be allowed?
I too wonder why this game isn't being televised, but it's probably too far for
BYUtv to send a production crew for a basketball game.Dave Rose
always makes it sound like BYU is playing Duke or Kentucky, but more often than
not, the Cougars end up winning by a comfortable margin.That's what
I like about Coach Rose; he never takes any team lightly, which is why he's
built such a solid program at BYU.Mid-week game between Christmas
and New Year's; this will probably be a very lightly attended game considering
all of the weather problems they've had in the northeast and students being gone
for the Holidays.Good luck Jimmer and company.
I hate it when I see "TV: none". Why doesn't BYUTV pick this up?
Good luck, Cougars. Wish I could watch the game here in Texas.
Same challenge as 12 other teams BYU has played.
