You can do it. You can do it. Be strong. You only have to deal with the mtn. for a few more games. (Me talking to self.)

Thanks for the Aggies tip. I'll be checking in on the game.

Go Cougs.

Great players rise to the occasion.
Brandon will be missed but he only averaged 24 minutes a game due to foul trouble (either that or the coach really likes him so Coach Rose made Brandon sit next to him a lot).

Seriously, Brandon's shoes will be tough to fill but we have several other good players that can step up.

At least davies is having a good game too soon? All ncaa teams are praying(pun intended) they play this team first round. One and done

OUch!! The wheels are coming off tonight. What a shame for all these guys to have worked so hard to get there and then have the rug pulled out. Still have hopes for the tourney though, anything can happen.

Mark it down, Chris B. and hedgie will have no honor on these boards tonight.

Is it something with New Mexico's playing style that makes them different from SDSU and others making them the type of team that matches up well against BYU? I know even good teams tend to have at least one style they just can't match up with very well but I am not familiar enough with either of these teams to speculate on what that could be.

Really???? Looks like the Brandon fiasco is having a major impact on this game. My guess is the BYU team is just not emotionally ready to play the game. It begs the question if the dismissal will greatly impact any chances at a tourney run. Too bad.

As a Ute fan, I can attest that this underachieving Lobo team can blow big leads. I wouldn't count Jimmer and company out just yet.

BYU needs to get some confidence in their shots. Everyone is cold at every range. No matter what they say, this team has been distracted by the SDSU game and Davies.

It has to hurt to go from a national level high, followed up with a national level low.

Almost half way thru the 2nd half, Not looking good unless you rooting for New Mexico!

The game now is as good as over. 20 pt blow out at the MC! I'm not feeling so good about the Y's chances now. Goodbye 1 seed for sure, and the 2 seed doesn't look too far behind.

embarrassing.

we jimmered ourselves tonight.

hopefully we get it all out of our system tonight and move forward toward the tournament.

anything can happen.

No one feels worse than Brandon Davies.

A bite of humble pie can be a good thing, especially if BYU can bounce back and play better in the tournaments.
