Note that now SBU is ranked number three in D2 and undefeated. Could it be that
SBU was just the better team?
Just to give you an update, those "Bible Thumpers" of Southwest Baptist are
currently ranked #4 in the latest D2 polls - averaging over 95 points a game and
are tops in the 3pt FG%.
As a grad of SBU I can tell you they are for real and a real Div II power year
in and year out. All that to say it is still fun to see them beat a Div I team
even if they are the Ukes. We will take the win and PRAY for Utah this season.
Looks like they may need it!!
It is called the College Basketball Invitational. It is a post season tournament
for elite NCAA Div 1 teams. They will not have any church teams. Get your facts
straight. I am sure they have a good team down in your happy valley ward, but
you will not be in the CBI. Please!!!! Do not post comments if you do not have
your facts straight. GO Utes.
I am officially starting a Boylen fan club. PLEASE.....PLEASE......keep him
around. He deserves at least 5 more years. He is the best coach in the Nation. I
think every other Y fan is behind me on this one.
Hey Utes....Hopefully you can put together another season like last year and
make the Church Ball Invitational. Maybe Southwest Baptist Church will be there
and you can get revenge. I hear the American Fork 9th ward has a
pretty good team and even won Region last year. If you end up playing them in
the CBI, keep in mind that overhang in the cultural hall may knock down a few
shots. They also make the team sit on the stage, because there is not enough
room between the side line and the wall....Just looking out for my Utes. Come on
boys win the Stake Championship.
Couldn't help but notice this comment from USA Today UofU BBall page."I am excited about our team and the opportunity we have this upcoming
season," said head coach Jim Boylen. "We're going to do our best to play a style
of basketball that our fans can be proud of."Not to big Jim, this is
not the type of basketball U fans are proud of. As a season ticket holder my
patience is wearing thin. I al getting sick of losing games like this one, and
really getting sick of Boylen losing it each game. It is getting old!
Boylen only gets paid $500,000 a year. What do you expect? Pay him $1,000,000
and he will produce.Man you people on here only complain. Look at it
from coach's eyes. He is underpaid so he is under performing.Come on
Oh Nice... sheesh ~ No Excuse for that!Hope they're ready when a real team
comes to town. Very Weak! Poorly prepared...
When is Utah's home opener, I missed it. Oh apparently they did too!
Oh brother here we go again. Quite predictable though. Every time the yewts do
poorly one of their bandwagon delusional fans starts dwelling on their past
"greatness" and "glory" to try to show they are actually better than their Big
Brother. That is so pathetic. But like I said, quite predictable. And the sad
thing is they don't understand that past accomplishments don't erase what's
I am very familiar with SBU program, they are a great DII team. They played
Southern Illinois in their exhibition game and gave them a great game. They have
a couple players who were at D1 programs and transferred. But to give up that
many 3's is just poor perimeter defense. And a good D1 program never loses to a
D2 at home. Not a good start for Utah. I just hope my Missouri State team can
when when you guys come down to Springfield in a few weeks.
How many of you were even alive the last time BYU won an NCAA tourney game?
Men's basketball, that is. Hmmm?
SW Baptist bible thumps the Utes!!!! Being a native born Missourian,
a devout BYU fan, a member of the LDS faith and a current resident of Utah
nothing could beat this! Oh my heck! Go bible thumpers!
The other night I read comments by Utah fans making fun of BYU for BEATING a
little school. This one is just too easy, I will just let this game speak for
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
A couple of corrections - This is not an embarrassment to either the Mountain
West Conference nor the State of Utah. It IS a HUGE blackmark on
the quality of the University of Utah's basketball program - PERIOD.The upside, however, is that there is only one way to go from here, and that
is up! Keep working hard and you might make it to that same post-season
tournament that you went to last year, whatever it was.
This one is WAY to easy. I won't even say it.......
Southwest airlines is funny!HA!
Looks like utah can't get talented players and coaches anymore.
Let's see, Southwest Baptist has 1600 undergraduate students, mostly education
majors. They were ranked 12th in the pre-season Division 2 coaches poll. Their
conference has perennial D2 football champions - Pittsburg State, and Northwest
This can't be! Is this a fluke or the future? Can anyone say... we need "Rick
You Ute fans shouldn't be commenting on BYU stories about how much better you're
going to be than the Cougars, because you really don't want to get caught eating
your words, like you are now.
. . . I'm a Coug fan. But I can't take any pleasure in the Utes losing in
preseason to a D-II school in their own building.It's just so
pathetic, the only thing I feel is pity. Although I usually love to see Utah
lose, I gotta say that loyal Ute fans, and I know many, deserve better than
Southwest Airlines? Is that suppose to be funny?
...from laughing so hard! The yewts...lost...I can hardly type this...my hands
are shaking I'm laughing so much...just hilarious...they lost to who? Southwest
Baptist something? Who...hahahahaha...who in the world is THAT?? Maybe they
should have scheduled Southwest Airlines instead!HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Last year, and now it looks like this year, the Utes look like they are
overcoached! They don't play free and Boylen barks way too much on each play.
If Boylen would stop thinking he has all the answers and let the kids play, the
Utes might win. Boylen, here's some advise. Don't put more than 10 thoughts in
your kids minds a minute!!! Ute BB is sick (in a bad way)Go UTE FB!
That's what happens when the Ute women's team shows up for a men's game.
Quality D-1 teams don't lose at home to Southwest Baptist Community Bible
School. How pathetic. The Utes will be lucky to win five conference games this
As my friend Larry would say, NOW THAT'S FUNNY, I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE!
I am BYU fan, but was born in a VERY red family. I watched nearly every Majerus
game growing up. This is not Utah basketball. I still think that Boylen
deserves some more chances to get things together, but maybe not another season.
Utah did not make the NIT last year, and things aren't looking much better this
year after this. It's not good for BYU, or the conference as a whole. I'm
hoping for a turn around this season Utes. Go BYU next week.
Hey how 'bout those BABTISTS. It's going to be a long year when the uke's lose
to the cupcakes they schedule! I think theBig Sky has an opening!
That is just fun to hear. Keep it up Utes! We love ya and respect that
SW Baptist will go to the final four this year. You heard it here first.
That's o,k. Women's gymnastics has to be starting pretty
soon....Where is Giac?
I recall some posts this morning, Ute fans talking smack how they finally have
the best big man in the conference and will wipe up on the MWC. And making fun
of BYU by beating Long Beach State by "only" 10 points. Hmmmm. As of this
moment, the entire conference has 1-0 records except for the Utes. Way to drag
down the conference RPI. And way to go, giving Southwest Whatever it's first
victory ever against a D-1 school. And in the Utes house, too. You all better
hope that the Utes beat BYU in football, or it's really gonna be a long year for
you. Sympathy goes toward the Ute players, but tremendous laughter goes toward
all the Ute fans whose lives seem to be based on the fortune or misfortune of
the Ute teams.
Now this is the way to bring out the fans!!!
You watch. Boylen will blame all of this on his players. He is like Bush. He
cannot take responsibility. He always blames his players. Great coaches look at
what they did wrong and adjust it. They never blame their players in the press.
That is wrong
I have never been able to stomach BYU but because of these negative Boylen
comments I hope The Y stomps the Yewts in football this next week, and in
basketball twice this year. You get what you sew fans.
An Aggie Fan Down South
Another year of boilin' boylen and beaker together losing...Go COUGS
This team is an embarrassment to basketball in Utah. This is boylen's fault.
You don't have to let a team shoot lights out from the three. Relax though.
This is not nearly as bad as Virginia losing to Chaminade.Embarassing.
Boylen's been here long enough to recruit some players. But apparently not good
enough to be a community college.Eat your own words.
Some of these comments are totally ridiculous. This is not Boylens fault. Put
the blame where it should be. He inheirited this bunch of flunkies. Whats he do
to do, get the athletic director to let him dump all of these second raters?
Give the coach a chance and I'll bet he makes you nay sayers eat your words.
Boylen is in trouble. I don't see him making it here for too long. This is a
Please, keep coach Boylen. It increases the chances of the Ewetes opponents
winning. Good hire. What a great sportsman coach Boylen is, letting all these
nobody and worthless teams win. There is always next year Ewetes!!!!
1. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!2. It seems that the traditional athletic fortunes
of BYU and Utah have switched places. Utah seems to be in the driver's seat in
football but hapless in basketball. BYU is good in football but not as good as
Utah (sad to say, but true), but BYU usually has a decent basketball team.
Isn't Southern Baptist a high school?Good thing this wasn't on the
Utes home court. Wait...Looks like the Ute Women's team will be
able to beat Boylen's boys.
I can't believe this. This is like losing to SLCC. Maybe they need to water
down their schedule more.Discraceful for the Mountain West Conference.
It's going to be an uphill battle this year. I have confidence in Coach Boylen
and the team. This is hopefully a wakeup call. And - you've got to hit free
Ha ha ha ha ha ha! That's funny. Get used to losing to church schools.
What was Stony brook farm all booked up?Seriously...Southwest
Baptist? And they lost?Bring back Giacoletti!!!
Oh my. Southern Baptist must be awesome to knock down the mighty Utes in the
Huntsman Center.Look out Mountain West.
i don't know how your opening sentence of this article was that the utes were
shocked. its not very shocking when weve been losing to teams like southern
baptist for the past 4 years. first was southern utah now this. i couldnt care
less about this team anymore. good thing the football team is fantastic. i hope
we kill byu next weekGO UTES!!!
This loss is by far the worst loss in our history, guard the 3 pt line, giving
up 16/32 threes is unacceptable
I was at the game, extremely embarassed with the outcome. Better show up and
play better on Tuesday or we will be 0-2 to start the season
WOW, not one thing has changed since last year. A coach who can't call a play
and win a game in the final seconds. Happened a dozen times last year. BOYLEN
MUST GO, a coach with head coaching experience must be hired. Absolutely
ridiculous, wake up Chris Hill. BOYLEN IS HORRIBLE!
How? Wow, I hpe the Utes put it together for the remainder of the season.
