Nobody expects my Utes to win. Boylen step down. Better to leave than to be forced out.

Ogden, Utah

JIMMER! I bet that 'jimmer' will see a 'jimmer' and then 'jimmer' the 'jimmer' with his awesom 'jimmer' skills! GO BYU

Nice try Utah. You have the worst team in the history of Div.1 basketball.

Huh? What's that? You're trying to say the Ewwttsss are good. I don't think so. Remember what little WCC team you lost to a few months ago. Go BYU Jimmers!

Cosmo's Cousin, no BYU's 1996 team had to be the worst in Div 1 history as they won only 1 game all year. Utah 2011 has already shown their at least 10 times better than that pathetic excuse for a team BYU fielded in 1996. Funny little cougs.

You may not have been born yet. Here is a short quiz for you cuz...
Who was the coach ?

Saint George, UT

Ten minutes left in the game and we're tied. No matter what happens from here on out, I'm proud of my Utes!

American Fork, UT


Yep moral victories are what it's all about.

Fresno, CA

So glad I don't have to go back to 1996 to feel good about my team .... Hope you enjoyed the game Rock.

American Fork, UT

Livin in the past huh pebbles. I guess if it's all you have.

Saint George, UT

I didn't say anything about moral victories. A loss is a loss but I'm proud of how my Utes played against the #7 team on the road. We held their top player to one of his worst performances of the year.

Utah is having a down year this year but overall, our program has excelled far beyond anything BYU has done up to this point in time.

It was nice to see some hussle and passion out of the Utes this time around as opposed to some other games this year.

Highland, UT

Good job Cougs!!!!! It was a tough game and I am impressed with how the Utes played but the in the end the best team won. Great game!

Cosmo Cousin it was tied at 48 with 7 minutes left not bad for the worst team in college basketball history.

To the rest of the Utes,

You have had an incredibly tough schedule this week. Good luck with the rest of your season.

Jimmer had an "off night" with 23 and was still the high scorer. I could only listen to to KSL so I couldn't see if the refs were letting Utah be extra physical on Jimmer.

Wow, I wish we had Jimmer next year so that I could watch him on TV most of the season. The MTN network vacuums!

Orem, UT

phew that was close! Good game for all.

Overton, NV

The MWC referees have sent a message to the rest of the conference:

You may knock Fredette to the floor all you want. We won't call the fouls.

Yeah, there were times early on when Fredette got calls that he probably should not have gotten. But in the last 3-4 games opponents have not only been physical, they've practically been tackling Fredette. And fouls are not getting called. That needs to stop before Jimmer gets seriously injured. There were 3 or 4 instances where Utes put a football-style body hit on Jimmer in today's game. Not acceptable.

Ann Arbor, MI

How many layups -- or widdle bunny wabbits, as I like to call them -- did (better)tds miss? They're in trouble, mark it down, look it up. Some and done.

Digging pretty deep now aren't we. Hey, how about them Yewts - scored north of 50.

Oh, and did you like seeing the 23,000 in that WCC gym you played in today?

Sure looking forward to September.

Salt Lake City, UT

BYU has won 9 out of the last 10 matchups.....thats Big 12 Dominace at its best!

Go Cougs!

Fresnogirl, Cosmo's Cuz asked for the 1996 smack with his comment about this Utah 2011 being the worst D1 team ever. Your team this year is the better team; no disagreement there. Just trying to keep it real in regards to BYU fan delusions of grandeur which leads them to make silly comments about my Utes (whose overall record/body of work I would take over the Y any day of the week). Question for you, why don't police your own fans when they act like trolls? You're good at pointing out others perceived weaknesses/actions; how about your own?
