It's pretty amazing that ESPN is hyping a game that is being televised by CBS
College Sports.It shows just how much national attention and respect
SDSU and BYU are getting.Of course, adding the Jimmer Show to the
mix doesn't hurt.
Unbeatable vs Unguardable!In the end, it will simply be...JIMMERED!
Dave Rose need to tell Jimmer this is an away game.Just don't talk
about rankings and seedings stuff. Bracketology geeks need to be turn off for
now till conferance tourney time.
san diego st is a great team with a great coach. they can play and have a gray
haired fox who coaches them too. don't let them sneak out the doors with a win
while we are lost in the moment waving at the cameras and sipping the slush. go
byu!! lock the doors.
Nothing but respect for SDSU. If both teams play to their best - BYU wins a
I hate the fact that this is called the biggest game in Marriott Center history.
Just last Fall, the game between TCU and UofU was called the biggest football
game in the history of the state of Utah (how do the people in Utah feel about
that now?)I'd prefer that we keep the hype down until after the game.
Biggest game in the season, thus far? Yes. Most important game in BYU
history--not. Best team they will face this (regular) season--probably.The
importance of this game comes down to 2 things: the conference championship,
and preparation for the tournament.I wish we got to play teams of this
caliber week-in and week-out like they do in the Big East--it would prepare us
so much more for the tournament. Go cougars!
How BYU handles the pressure will tell us how good they really are. I do hope
they do well.
This is one of the biggest conferences games in the NCAA this year...PERIOD!Two legitimate top 10 teams play in front of 23,000+
The BYU up tempo game, Jimmer's game, team three point shooting, Emerys defense,
contributions from Davies, Hartsock, Collingsworth and the home court noise mean
a win. San Diego did not play AF like a top ten team...yes, they are good
athletes and play well together, but as a team they are not as good as the
Y...not in the Marriott Ctr. Jimmer will score, and find the open man when
pressed by mulitiple defenders! Nervous nellies have faith!
Isn't it just great when two of the nation's best teams meet, and the majority
of the nation won't even be able to watch?Thanks for everything MWC. Don't
let the door hit you on your way out.
Too bad the powers that be couldn't move the tip off earlier in the evening so
that viewers east of the Mississippi could get a real look at the Cougars.10:15 PM ET isn't exactly condusive to more people getting to see the
These boys are terrific ball players!
Lace 'em up and let 'er rip!
Kudos to BYU for a great baller team this year. However, I think SDSU will win
this one, by a hair of course. Good luck Cougars, you'll need it.
Hype, hype, hype and what oercent of Utah fans can get the game? What a
travesty, and a media sham!

Dr. J, two top 10 teams regularly square up in major conferences. For example, Saturday I enjoyed watching Texas beat undefeated #2 Kansas at
Kansas. Last Wednesday they beat #11 Texas A&M. In a few days they will
play #13 Missouri. Perhaps this is why teams from major conferences
generally do better in March. They have already played in more than a couple of

GO Cougars! Forget the hype, just go and win.
Go Cooougs!!! The Marriot center is going to be rockin'!!!
I bought my tickets for this game back in December. My only worry is that for
whatever reason BYU hasn't owned the Marriott Center as much this year as they
have in years past. I hope Jimmer and Jackson can set the tempo early, maybe by
hitting a big run and going up 16-4 just three minutes into the game. But they
can't just turn it on at the start. They've got to keep pouring it on. If I was
Dave Rose I'd be telling my boys that they have to score 100 in this.
@Marked it Down: Let's not forget it was a team from that conference that
spanked us. It's good to be mentioned among the elite of the nation as far as
the ranking is concern but I'm still nervous as to how really good we think we
are. Time will tell and I'm hoping it'll be a great ending to a fabulous start
so far. Go Cougs!!! Go Jimmer!!!
Mark it Down, wasn't it a lowly unranked PAC team that beat the cougs? hummmmm
Stay out of foul trouble, Cougars, and you'll be just fine. Amen on
the CBS-C comment. I'll be tuning in on the radio like 1940. :)
VERY exciting even as a UTE. Go Cougars!!!!
Davies and Hartsock need to avoid bone head fouls, and stay out of foul trouble
early - if they can accomplish this then the Cougars have a good chance for the
Direct from ESPN:"These games don't come along every decade
when you're BYU"LOLOne ncaa win in 20 years!See ya in 2030 little brother
I hope this game is the start of selling out the Marriott center for the rest of
the year. Jimmer and this team have earned our support as a fan base and I hope
the MC is sold out the rest of the year. It may be another 25 years before we
see another player as special as Jimmer.
The only glaring weakness I can see with BYU is their bench. In a game like
this you need production off your bench and I don't think BYU has it. I'm
looking for the Aztecs to wear them down in the last 10 minutes of the game.
I would like to see Jimmer get another 40 + game tonight. I wish I could watch
the game. Good Luck BYU ....beat the Aztecs.
I think the key is keeping Davies and Hartsock out of foul trouble. If they can
stay out of foul trouble, the defense will be better and the outside game will
not have to be forced. I hope Davies can get off to a good start, if he can that
should help the outside shooters get cleaner looks. I'd like to see BYU's
defense shine and come up with a goodly number of turnovers, that would make the
"thebigsamoan"BYU did lose to PAC 10 member UCLA, by 7,
but BYU also spanked a better PAC 10 team, Arizona, by 22 just a week earlier.
Poor, jealous Christina. These games may not come along very often
for BYU, but the salient point is the Cougars will be playing in one of the
most-hyped games this season in a little over 24 hours, while that storied
program on the hill is losing to teams like San Diego and SW Baptist every year
and rarily even gets to the Big Dance anymore.
"See ya in 2030 little brother"U should be able to make it
back to the Big Dance before then, but you're the expert.See ya in
2030 little bro.Signed,Big Brother
Go cougs!! I really wish I could be there but sometimes one needs to study. I
will be rootin' for you in the quiet recesses of the neuroanatomy lab. GO
Good luck, Zoobs & Cosmo's, Ute fan here actually hopes you win, tho I think
what's more likely is you get exposed the way the U's football team did against
TCU.But maybe the homeless man's JJ Redick will have another lucky
night from six feet behind the three-point line.
I'm keeping my mouth shut until we're sure we have the game in our rearview
mirrors. I'd rather be safe then sorry. Still, go Cougs!
@ Chrissy B2030 huh??? You figure it's going to take Utah that long
to show up again. I don't know if we can wait that long. Scoobie
