phantomblade | 3:23 p.m. Oct. 31, 2011 Salt Lake City, Utah "When was the last time Utah did anything on the national basketball
stage?"Utah went to the Sweet-16 in 2005.They had the #1
pick in the NBA the same year.Not exactly ancient times.
mgr63When was the last time Utah did anything on the national
basketball stage?It's hilarious how Utah fans think the college
football world began in 2004, but the college basketball world ended the same
year.Having the Concensus National Player of the Year is a pretty
big deal to the rest of the college basketball world, even if jealous, Utah
trolls can't handle are too blinded by their BYU hatred to see it.
"certain members of our society will NEVER consider attending BYU."Yep, that is why BYU has the rare problem of having to reject thousands
of applicants each year, maintain 30,000+ students, and have 3 universities open
(including one in Hawai'i so people from dozens of country get the chance to
attend BYU).Love how haters hate on this lower division team when
their own team is doing the same thing. Hypocrites. Can't wait for
a fun, new season with a new team!
Pretty high scoring game. Defense anyone?
mgr63: There were two other former Cougars with Ainge on the World Champion
Celtics back in the day. Your BYU basketball history knowledge must be a little
lacking. Is that Miller guy working on shooting a 3 pointer during the lockout?
My mom can shoot better from the outside than your darling #24.
mgr63: Are you passing on soon?
Utah State is looking to have a very good team, inspite of the fact that we lost
a lot of good seniors. Thoseby, Pane, Brunheel, and Reed are really fun to
watch. Look for a classic beat down of BYU in the Smith Spectrum! Go Aggies!
Hey Mger63, you must be either 95 years old, have terminal cancer, or you are
predicting your own death date, March 2012.And Sportsfanforlife,
next Spring when the Y is in the big dance and the U doesn't even make the NIT
we will all remind you!
Oops, I thought this was football too...I'm getting used to seeing these team
names in football articles.Please God, bring back our old
conference..."anything" is better than what we're getting now. Oh,
except...at least we can see BYU beat div 2 schools in HD...big time baby, big
sportsfanforlife...you have seen the Utes play,.......haven't you? Hate much?
@sccouger na the fact is that byu says how classy they are and gets on everyone
who says anything about their precious little school but can bash and bad talk
anyone they want. hahaha. good luck without jimmer. next time you make it
farther than utah in any tourney let me know.
"I get a kick out of Y fans that criticize Utah basketball."@mgr63: I get tired of U fans trolling BYU articles and criticizing their fans
for making comments."Never win another NCAA tourney game in my
lifetime." Please, that comment and the fact that you're worried what BYU
fans say is just sour grapes.
I get a kick out of Y fans that criticize Utah basketball. Sure Utah is
restoring their program, but BYU has done NOTHING on the national stage
EVER!!!!!!! Utah has had many fine NBA players, still does. Who played in the
NBA from BYU since Ainge other than the complete disaster Shawn Bradley? BYU's
revenue sports are terrible, that simple.......and they always will be, because
certain members of our society will NEVER consider attending BYU. And, without
Jimmer you'll never win another NCAA tourney game in my lifetime. Gooooooo Utes!
I loved being able to see BYU live on BYUtv - even if it was only an exhibition
game.The Cougs looked pretty good, especially considering there are
9 Freshman on the team and we lost a couple of key players. I think all of the
Freshman got time on the floor, except Carlino who we won't see until mid
December.We got a pretty good sense for who will be the key players
last night. I think the only unanswered question is who will start at PG when
Carlino becomes eligible. Zylstra did not look as good in the exhibition at PG
as his stats from the European tour.Davies, Hartsock and
Collinsworth will get most of the minutes at the 4 and 5 spot, with some time
for Sharp.Abouo, Rogers and Harrison will get most of the minutes at
the 2 and 3 spot, with some time for Winder. Harrison does not look like a
Frosh - he's very good.Zylstra and Carlino will get most of the
minutes at the 1 spot. I expect Carlino will become the starter as the season
progresses.Austin and Harward both looked good, but should redshirt
along with a couple others.
"Can't we play legitimate team?"No - most of them are
afraid to take early season losses that BYU will hand to them.
What's a Midwestern State? Can't we play legitimate team? Is this win part of
the official win loss record? Oh, it was an exhibition game, I see. Come on,
let's quit scheduling nobodies. Looking at the rosters of the some of the main
teams BYU will be playing in their new conference affiliation, we will be
getting hammered by bigger, quicker players on at least three of the teams. All
I can say is good luck this season. Go Cougars.
All Big Schols have Small Schools on there play list. No harm in that, My grip
is not the School or the Program it the effort or lack of it I saw in the
player. If you did that on a JHS Team you should be history.As in
Business, Employees reflect Management
Could a box score please be linked to game columns and articles? It drives me
nuts to never get to see a box score with the article. I think a fan of any team
could agree with this?
I have an Hawaiian Foster Son who is a very good 2 Guard, playing for a poor
high school team. Coach demands a lot so few want to play. The expectation of No
expectation. With average grades his grandma died, and some girl
friend issues, he is having a rough year the saving grace is being an ROTC Cpt
and Basketball. My wife and i have raised him and his brother (now in Clifornia
doing well enough), for the last 4 years, Both boys are strong Basketball
Players his brother making 2nd string all conference with his poor team.I told the boy to pic a div 3, School with a so-so record and Walk On.
He did a year in City Leagues and decided School was after all a great idea.His brother who listens a little better, I am going to show this picture
to and tell him to walk on at this school or one like it. I will not have to
explain why?Hawaii has No JC Basketball Program. So if your half
good you have to go to the Mainland to play. Effort is somthing you
should see on every play.
86&90UTEIt's hillarious that Utah basketball has fallen so far
that you have to resort to football smack.BYU uses games against
teams like Midwestern State as a tune up.Utah is used by teams like
Southwest Baptist as a tune up..
BYU tried to strengthen their schedule but had to settle for Division III
opponents like the University of Utah. You know, to fill in the gaps.
The other teams player has a man standing flat footed, guarding a man by
sticking one hand in his face. Did we see 2 handed set shots from this team also
and how about 4 corner defense. 91-74 is a joke. They drew flies and no one
cared o include the other teams players. This is why you need a Mercy Rule,
Mercy To The Fan.
The weakest team BYU will face this year is Utah.
Right after the game, Coach Rose went up in the stands and talked to Michael
Lloyd Jr.'s parents and game his mom a nice hug.Very genuine and
classy gesture.===BYU is still adjusting to the
post-Jimmer era, but they looked good with the starters out there.
Compared to the u they are a powerhouse!
Sorry, thought this was a football article. Isn't Midwestern State one of those
powerhouses on Byu's football schedule!!
