@ Chris B:Utah is not only not in the middle of the PAC, they lost
to all the WCC teams they have played this year.Despite the foul
trouble, and some of the turnovers, there were some encouraging signs today.
Hustle by Collinsworth, rebounding (although Wofford is smaller that most teams
the Cougars will play), Logan hitting open shots. It was great to see everyone
going to the basket more. Go Cougars!
Good bye trolls, BYU is off to the second round!Way to go team. Way
to go Jimmer! Congratulations to BYU!
Oh, chris, is this what gnashing of teeth looks like?
We dominated this game against a great opponent in Wofford. One down, many more
Thanks for another vote of confidence Chris and Hedge, I always enjoy reading
your comments. As much as I'd love to see the Cougars take it all, you'll
probably get at least one prediction right this year so don't give up.
"Final Score:Wofford 72other school 64Mark it
down!"The Troll was actually pretty close. Just two points off
for each team. Oh, yeah...not to mention that little problem with having the
teams reversed.Not a pretty game. I really thought the officiating
was the worst part of it. Abouo should have actually fouled out a whole lot
earlier on a foul on a rebound. But then when he did foul out, it was on
something that I thought didn't exist. It was like that all game. Refs were
calling the ticky tack stuff, ignoring a lot of the hard stuff. Definitely not
an 'A' game for the officiating crew.In the end, I'm happy with a
win, no matter how they got it. They really need to play a whole lot better
next game.And just imagine how many assists Jimmer would have had if
other guys had hit more shots. He ended up with 8, but could have had a lot
more than that.30 pts, 8 assists, 4 boards. Not bad.
Dearest Hedgehog,I was wrong, U were right.BYU, once and
done.Who woulda thunk?
Ok eating crow....I'm still not impressed. Looks more like a middle
of the PAC(oh wait, WCC) team. St Johns or Zags to the sweet 16.
He cannot play, he is suspended from playing. The representation,however,is
that the team nor the school are turning their backs on the young man.
I feel like he's representing the team just the same by sitting on the bench. I
too am glad he's allowed to be there. I'd prefer he were allowed to play.
There are other guys on that bench that haven't gotten the camera time he has
during this game. Why not let him have a jersey and play. He's definitely
Diddy - he was not "kicked" out of school. He was suspended from the
team and since it was not due to anything illegal or breaking of NCAA rules he
may travel and sit with the team. I am glad the team is allowing him to be with
them...after all he helped get them this far.Go Cougars, Go Aggies!
@NevadaCoug It's an honest question. The rationale I've heard is that when
you're at BYU you're representing the faith. Isn't sitting on the bench
representing the faith. There are athletes on the bench in uniforms that are on
the team that are "representing" the faith as much as he is right
now.What's the thought here Nevada?
The refs haven't been great but the Cougs have no one to blame for the close
game but themselves. Lots of stupid shots. With Abouo back in next half we
should play better than we did with Anderson in there!
My guess is the POY award will go to someone who takes his team to the second
round.Congratulations Kemba, Jared, or Nolan. One of you deserve
it. Final Score:Wofford 72other school 64Mark it down!
Diddy: Davies has not been kicked out of school.But it's
interesting you got a recommendation for that comment. Chris B?
Early on, the trend is clear. Once BYU starts pulling ahead, the whistles come
out.Granted, BYU is shooting very poorly so far and have made some
lazy passes (Collinsworth especially). But when Jimmer can get jumped on and
there is not call? Come on. 13-6 difference in fouls right now.
Can someone explain the thinking behind allowing Davies to sit with the team.
I'm not asking as a cynic but I can't understand why he's not allowed to
represent the team on the floor but he's ok to represent them on the bench. It
was my understanding he was kicked out of school. I'm just wondering the logic
I want to see the refs open their eyes! Half the shots BYU has taken, they have
It was clear this team was overrated and would eventually be exposed. Wofford
dominating both ends right now 17-14. As expected, tds shooting
around 25%. No one knows how to choke like the tds.
So far sunday school boys look very much the #14 seed.Look for
Wofford to pull away by 12 at the half and never look back.
Congratulations to San Diego State -- they are on their way to Round 2. Way to
represent the MWC.
Been watching the games today...I do think BYU will win.But it's march madness...Let's see what happens!
Good luck...wait, what team is playing Utah? Oh, that's right...nobody is.
I'm so excited to be able to WATCH my team! Go Cougars!
Good luck Terriers. Chances are you won't need it.
