The WCC is so good every day, in every way I don't know why BYU didn't join years ago.

It is a puzzlement though, that BYU tried to join the WAC before settling for the WCC.

The WAC would have been fine before it imploded. We'll be fine. Go back to sleep.

Everything is fine. Just fine. fine. Again, just fine.

really, hedge and howard? you're posting on a article about Golf? Really?
btw, nice 5th place finish in Gymnastics. I heard that Coach Whittingham was going to invite the RedRocks to come and give a motivational conference to the football team. He's apparently hoping one day he can get back to the Vegas Bowl with a 5th place finish of his own.

I'd be interested in reading an article about the impact on BYU's soccer programs from moving to the WCC. For the first time in history, BYU is playing in a conference with men's soccer. How will this move to the WCC impact the BYU men's soccer program? What about the women's program?

Oh Dick!

byu has a golf team? well this move to the WCC will put them into oblivion.

Hmmm... the comments are from Utes. They seem to be the only ones who have a problem with BYU's affiliation with the WCC. Those of us who ARE actually affiliated with BYU are incredibly touched (amused) by their misplaced concern. Perhaps they could take that time and energy and focus it on supporting their own teams.

Yes, BYU has a golf team. In fact Mike Weir is a BYU grad. Thanks for sharing.

First off: my comment was sarcastic.

Secondly: you do realize why this article was written? if you don't, its because byu is getting alot of negative feedback about their non-football sports joining the WCC. Mr. Harmon wrote this article about the Golf team being opitimistic, because he is defending byu's conference change and trying to build it up, so Y fans don't feel so bad about playing small west coast private schools. Dave Rose isn't too happy about their power-house basketball team playing in High School gyms. He much rather play in the Mountain West.

Funny how the Utes can all read Dave Rose's mind. Is Mind Reading a G.E. class up on the hill?

And Fresno Girl's point is valid (and you have helped to demonstrate that). The Ute "fans" are the ones uber-concerned with BYU's move to the WCC. Just like you all were so very concerned with BYU's move to Independence. And, as usual, she's right. We are all amused by your concern (trollish obsession). Now go and visit your own boards for a change.

Thank you. You've illustrated my point beautifully!

Would those be the same "small west coast private schools" that owned the Utes in basketball this year?

You should probably spend your time and energy getting a jump start on the next basketball coaching search. This IS your 6th coach in since 2004, so odds are he won't last long either.

I see that no one is even bothering to learn how to pronounce of even spell his name -- you all just call him Coach K. I guess you know he won't be around long, so why bother?

@Collin Card

That was funny! Let's see... it is a school full of trolls who think they can read people's minds and foretell the future. Plus, they cannot bring themselves to calling their rival by name.

How long, do you think, before they announce quittage as the new club sport?

Cheers to Fresno Girl and her accurate points. Wish I had read this back when, but it is still relevant.

Go Cougars!
