Cougars by 18+.

South Jordan, UT

We'll be there supporting our team!

Go Cougars!

Hayden, ID

There is more pressure on the Cougars to win than CSU because of BYU's home winning streak and the race for the MWC championship. CSU is playing for pride and a possible NCAA tournament bid. BYU is playing for that and much more. BYU by 11.

Eagle Mountain, UT

Should be a hard fought game. If Jimmer plays an average game I predict a BYU double digit win. If Jimmer does not play or shoots poorly, it could be very close.

Shooting 35% and averaging more turnovers than assists? Just imagine if jimer had more to his game than running into the opponent and jacking up balls.

No, hedgehog, you are confused. TJ was talking about an average game for Jimmer (50% shooting, 27 points, 5 assists). He was *not* talking about an average game for a player for the School North of Town (snot). It is the utes who average 35% and have to struggle to score 50 points at home against the worst team in the conference. Thanks for playing, though.

Oh Hedgie...I love the smell of envy in the morning.

I wish Jimmer had more to his game than what you claim. It would be awesome if instead of shooting 35%, he actually shot 46.6%. It would be even more awesome if he could shoot like say...41.7% from 3 range. Just imagine if he could average over 4 assists per game. But oh well...even so he's averaging 27.2 ppg by just running into people and jacking up balls. I hate gimmick players. He's so one sided. He can't even shoot the ball.

Re: "Delmar the Amazing"-- Amen! Tonight's game should not even be close and one that allows Jimmer to rest more and be ready for Saturday. This will be the game of the year for the bench. FYI-- Steve Fisher has gone on record to remind "The Show" students to be loud & proud on Saturday but be classy-- for them not to cross the line. As an SDSU alumn who long ago left the Red & Black to cheer on my adopted-Cougs, I'm glad Fisher and other SDSU athletic officials came out on the record to remind the students.

Hey, Hedg: Still waiting for some indepth analysis of your Utes on the hardcourt. They're simply dominating the MWC this season and should do even better in the Pac 12, huh? Thanks for your continuing support of the Cougs and our Jimmer!

Salt Lake City, UT

It should be a hard fought game, but still a Cougar W. After all, the Rams aren't the mighty runnin' utes so the Cougs will actually have to show up to win. The ute trolls must be ecstatic after their monumental win at home over the feared TCU Frogs.

Lehi, UT

A bunch of us fans sitting in the west side near the basket enjoy seeing the colorful posters brought by the student section. We have a great view of the byu offense in the first half and their stellar defense in the second. We anxiously await our teams performance tonight. Play relaxed and drain the 3 ball. csu won't know what him them. Cougars by 15. Fredette goes 30+.

Orem, UT

Without fredette this could get scary.
Cougs by 4 without him.

Mcallen, TX

Hard winning in Provo. Cougs hedging to a high seeding.

Except for being annoyed by a couple negative ute fans, congratulations to the ute basketball team. I believe Boylen is a good coach working with new players in a tough league.

Go Cougs!

North Salt Lake, UT

Questions and answers?
1. Will BYU look past CSU looking at the bigger game Sat. with SDSU?
Answer- No. Fredette's injury may limit his minutes. Guys will step up. It's at the MC.
2. Does CSU have the talent to beat BYU?
Answer- Yes, although I was disappointed they couldn't beat UNLV at Ft. Collins. CSU has to play their best game of the year.
3. Who has a big night?
Psychic Stalwart says look for Davies to shine along with Rogers and Emery.
4. Prediciton- BYU 74-60 in a CSU slow down game.

Ann Arbor, MI

Attn: All tds trolls,

Enjoy your last few days of optimism. Tonight you'll some how slip by CSU - even though jimer will need to "jack" up 40 shots to get 21 points.

What's to follow? 3 straight loses to end the season in heartbreaking fashion.


Alpine, UT

Please give us more Utah Troll predictions to "Mark Down". Can't get enough of those!

Oh, and since the leading scorer in the nation on a team that is 25-2 is called a G I M M I C K, why don't other teams use the same G I M M I C K? It would appear that the G I M M I C K works quite well, doesn't it? Every team should be wanting a
G I M M I C K of their own.

Layton, Utah

CSU is going to be G I M M I C K E D tonight
Mark it down!!

And the Dukies will pommel the Owls!! #1

Provo, Utah

I sure as heck hope that you are all right. We definitely should beat CSU. I'm just worried that a desperate team with nothing to lose and everything to prove coming in against a team with a monumental matchup looming ahead and an injured Jimmer could be upset alert...I'm very hopeful and think that we will pull it out, I just think that the Rammies are definitely going to come in with some fire.

Fresno, CA


Actually ... since you are on the BYU boards spewing negativity, that make YOU the Troll. But thanks for playing, better luck next time.

The Planet, Earth

If the Rams were a threat, they would be winning at home against teams like UNLV. All the angst and hand-wringing are unnecessary, the Cougars will win this thing running away with or without Jimmer.

Hedgie will start predicting a blow-out against SDSU and so on. Mindless ranting from a small, insect eating mammal.

Heg, try running those stats for the season and see if they are still in your favor. I thought not.

Go Cougs.
