They started it according to Daily Herald reporter. Check out the Youtube and
story links buried in the 'Jimmer on the Big Screen' article.These
guys come into Provo and start trashing Jimmer and then they start the shoving
match, then it escalates from there.UNM are sore losers, it's
Jimmer's fault. Perfect!
@ Duckhunter: Thank you so much for the personal bio. Now we know all about
you and we will add that to all of the people you know, the places you've been
and the projects that you have worked.
@hailstormI don't attend BYU. Most fans of BYU don't attend BYU. I
am not bound by the honor code because you see I am simply a fan. Up until a few
weeks ago I had long hair. I also occasionally gamble and I hunt and fish on
Sunday's. You are a hypocrite though and pretty much all utah "fans"
like yourself are those if you want to make generalizations. But for
me, well I like baseball brawls. I was involved in a couple of them when I was
younger. Lotsa fun.
Suspended for three games.The next three MWC games?The
next three scheduled games?
I heard from a source that part of the reason this brawl occurred in the first
place is because the UNM players were chattering a lot. One of them said
something similar to what the Italian player, Materazzi, said to Zidane in the
World Cup back in 2006.Keep it classy, New Mexico.
And like we need 'little brother' fans to point out the 'foibles of youth'...
(church lady) "Well isn't that special".Maybe there's hope
for some of you Ute trolls. If by reading these stories about shortcomings in
human character and you comprehend as such, just maybe you'll identify &
find character for yourself? Nah, I didn't think so.
Hey Vance, that's the way to keep it classy. It's one thing having a bunch of
20 year old kids brawl on the field, but the Coach? Nice example.
It's too bad that Bernal was suspended. He is hitting the ball great this year.
If it could of been Caldwell or another player who is struggling, that would
have been better.
Way to go Diamond Cougs...kicked their tail both on and off the field.
Duhkunter: The honor code clearly states, " Respect others ".
Supporting and encouraging a brawl is outside the limits of sportsmanship.
Duckhunter,Interesting comments considering we have a pretty good
lead on BYU in the conference race right now.
First Elizabeth Lambert, now this. Must be in the water at UNM.
Frankly I like baseball brawls. Lotsa fun. Glad to see the Cougars have a little
fight in them. I'm sure ernest's utes would have just let those "new
mexicans" beat them down. Not much fight in those gals.
Wow, a reprimand from the MWC. How serious could that be? UNM athletics = MWC
competence. Consider the source.
Those New Mexicans started this. There is now way us byu players would have
Vance Law has not gotten to where BYU needs to be. Maybe it is time to see a
change because WCC will be tough.
OlpuebloguyInWyo - Ryan Beranl is a started and one of the top players for BYU.
Ryan missing three games will hurt. Bernal is known to run his mouth. I think
he threw the first cheap shot punch. I think he needs to be reprimanded.
News flash: this happens in sports. Quite a bit actually. There. Now we can move
on with our lives.
Even though it was embarassing to see what happened on the field, won't hurt the
team much since those effected are not starters AND the fact that the team will
not advance beyond the MWC tourney. I see the only one on the hot seat for now
with the school is V. Law. Reminds me of the days of Crowton where some on the
team affected the program....and we see where that got him. The baseball program
has really never been a top program in the nation (or the WAC or MWC) and
probably never will against those teams who have their home plates in sunny
climates. Recruiting is difficult I am sure for one who is setting his sights on
a professional career. Just sayin'....
Sounds like they were disciplined. What do you want?
Great missionary work Cougies!
It is good to see the BYU baseball team have a little fight. Them New Mexico
boys can't just keep their mouths shut. I'm ok with this.
Where is the "Honor Code" in all of this???????? Good news Davies,
you'll get a break from the publicity (maybe for one day).
