While I would love to see the MWC get 4 teams into the Big Dance, I'd also love to see the Utes play spoilers to UNLV and CSU. I realize it is not likely we will win both of those games, but even one would be great. Since UNLV has the best shot at the Big Dance between the two, I'm hoping for a win over CSU to give the Utes the best seeding possible in the MWC tournament and hopefully avoid UNLV.

You need to change the article title to MWC college basketball. It is clear that non-Utah schools in the MWC are given greater coverage than USU that is having a great season.

The Aggies will be taking revenge on Saturday against Idaho State, the only WAC team to beat USU this year.

Go Big Blue!!!

I'm not as generous as you. I could care less about 4 MWC teams making into the tournament ... I'd much rather see the Utes play spoiler.

Go Big Blue!!!

I used to wonder why the very deserving USU team got basically ignored by the Utah media, then I wandered over to your boards. There aren't many folks commenting. If this is indicative of how many people are reading the articles, then therein lies the problem. A newspaper is a business. Get more Aggies to read and comment and you will likely see more Aggie articles.

BTW, good job this year. You guys are having a great season!

This is why USU can't be taken seriously. The fans have no clue what teams are on your schedule.

You were beat by IDAHO (in Moscow) not Idaho State (which is Pocatello, 90 miles from Logan)

Can't cheer for the Aggies because my wife went there.

My Bad. Sorry for the slight to Idaho. On the bright side at least your wife is educated.

MWC will be a three bid league SDSt 2, BYU 3, UNLV 9. If someone other than these three wins the Vegas Invitational then Vegas might lose it's spot. You earn respect by going deep into the Big Dance. Only UNLV has done it recently of these three teams. I'm hoping for at least elite 8 runs for Aztecs and Cougars, anything less will be a major disappointment. We've both had great seasons so far but glory is won by hard work on defense. Cougars need to hold serve tonight so that this Sat game at VA will be one for ages. Good Cougars.

CSU won't get an invite this year. They needed to beat UNLV to have a shot. But they could make some noise in the NIT. They will be one of the better teams in the NIT.

fresnogirl,

The Utah media may respond to demand, but it also creates demand. I'm convinced that if they stopped ignoring Utah State, people would perk up and pay attention better, and Aggie faithful would come out and support the team in ways that are supremely better than commenting on a newspaper website comment board(like continuing going to games, liking the aggies on facebook, etc.).

Utah media is just in love with BYU, even during bad seasons.
