Good luck Terriers. Chances are you won't need it.

Good luck...wait, what team is playing Utah? Oh, that's right...nobody is.

Been watching the games today...

I do think BYU will win.

But it's march madness...

Let's see what happens!

Congratulations to San Diego State -- they are on their way to Round 2. Way to represent the MWC.

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.

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.

I want to see the refs open their eyes! Half the shots BYU has taken, they have been fouled.

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 behind it.

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.

Diddy: Davies has not been kicked out of school.

But it's interesting you got a recommendation for that comment. Chris B?

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 72
other school 64

Mark it down!

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!

3 seed?

@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?

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!

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 representing!

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.

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.

Dearest Hedgehog,

I was wrong, U were right.
BYU, once and done.

Who woulda thunk?
