Rose said. "They've played really well of late. and then the article goes on to say they are 1 and 6 in their last seven games. I appreciate the coach trying to make fans and the team feel this is going to be a tight game but this will be another blow out against a team that should not be in division 1.

flatlander - How would you determine who should be a D1 team? I agree that San Diego is not a Top 100 team, but I think there's room for teams like this in D1.

There are some who think that D1 (FBS) football should only include 64 teams (4 conferences of 16 teams each). This type of system would exclude some very deserving teams.

I'm afraid if we started excluding teams from D1 basketball, we would miss out on some real talent.

Which of the 345 D1 teams should we start eliminating first?

btw, San Diego BEAT Utah last year 67-64

Well- first it seems everybody beats Utah. This year our local city college went D-1 and they are doing it to raise money as now all the big guys want to play them. In football they penalize a team for playing more than 1AA school and in basketball they let eveyone be a D-1 that wants to be so now there are 345 and soon that will top 400. BYU will just have to pick up a tougher pre conference schedule in future years

BYU would LOVE to have a more difficult pre-conference schedule in future years. But they do not (and should not) agree to only playing road games. If the so-called better teams were willing to do home and home, BYU will take on anyone.

This game will be no runaway victory for the Cougars. D is the key! I hope they're ready. They should be rested. Will they be prepared?

BYU shouldn't have monday games, they can't practice, review, and have a shootaround on sundays, for gosh shakes thats unfair. They need to have a bye for monday games, only play teams a home and home schedule, the NCAA doesn't understand they are "special" I guess!

2/3 of the season is over and you still can't look up a BYU Basketball score on FOX sports online?

@don17
Fox Sports also shows that the NCAA leader in field goal percentage so far is someone who's played a total of 1 minute of basketball and has 2 points this entire season. Check out a real sports network.
