Please don't think most of the Ute fans are like Chris B.

Harrison sounds like a great kid, and I'm liking the athleticism the Y is lining up. If some of the big guys can step it up a notch this season, the Y could become very competitive for the WCC title!

thinke, they your in for an even better, yous dizzy, same of the same.

What are you talking about? Is this the same place that holds about 10,000 fans? When the MC holds close to 23,000.

ChrisB your team this year will lose most all of its games except maybe for the D2 games they play this year, oh ya they have lost those games the past few years as well.

I remember the Utah actually had a better showing in the NCAA tournament the year after Van Horn (arguably the best Utah player of all time) left. Could BYU do the same thing?

BTW, I like the Crimson talking points (9/17/2011). I'd love to see BYU fans keep their mouths shut about Utah football until they beat BYU again, and Utah fans keep their mouths shut about BYU basketball until they beat BYU again.

But I'm not holding my breath...

What if Cris B. was really a BYU fan just trying to have some fun. Think about it! I'll bet he is.

Sounds like a great recruit. Should help the Jimmerless and Emeryless Cougars make another bid for the NCAA tourney in the WCC.

Although, I'm a Ute fan, I don't often agree with Chris B. However, I enjoy having him around as I am sure most who respond to his posts are as well. What's more, for every one Chris B., there are at least two cougar "fans" on the DN ready to pour on the Utes....

What a stud! Can't wait to watch his development over the years here!

Speaking of fans commenting on their rivals articles, why don't you go worry about whether or not there are any recruits that will help the Clyburnless, Sharpless, O'Brienless, Brownless, Cyphersless, and Readless Utes instead of handing out backhanded compliments.

Children, Children! We must, must, must learn to ignore "CB" and anyone suspected of trolling. Trolls love and live for nibbles and bites. The thing that drives them away is the lack thereof. Can you see CB filling revisiting these pages quarter hour by quarter hour, to giggle and smirk over the rants and raves he prompts? Do you understand how this feeds him, and gives his poor life meaning? But give it a rest, and these trolls shrivel and die from malnourishment.

Here is how we do that, Cougar fans: When you see the names of well known trolls at the top or in the body of a message, pass it right up. Tell yourself, "This comment will be irrelevant," because it's true. You and I do not need to waste our words there. If we don't read it, we won't be tempted to comment on it, nor be lured into meaningless arguments, defending obvious untruths, or contributing to the voices of ignorance.

It's that simple.

Coach Rose, you done good getting DeMarcus Harrison. We're excited to see him play.

Excited to see Harrison play and hopefully contribute a lot.

Chris Collinsworth is the key to this team. If he is healthy and playing well the Cougars can go far. If they have to rely on just Davies and Hartsock as the only big men they Cougars might not get another tournament win.

Orem, UT

Everyone needs to stop picking on Chris B. When someone is hurting, they strike at others. Maybe we could all take turns having him over for dinner and help him feel better. We would even be willing to use a red table cloth if that would help with one of those red "U are Special" dinner plates. Maybe cherry turnovers instead of blueberry for dessert. Oops, sorry. Didn't mean to mention turnovers. I meant pie.

Hey Chris B,
In other news,Utah is predicted to finish last in the Pac 12 hoops this year

Highland, UT

It sure is nice following a basketball program that has the reach to get top level recruits from all over the country. Not just "recruits" either, TOP LEVEL recruits, like Harrison.

I'm much more of a football fan than basketball fan but watching BYU since Rose has taken over has been a ton of fun. Up tempo with athletic players, lots of scoring, NCAA appearances every year, national attention, best player in college basketball, really it has been great and this year will be another great one.

Columbia, MO

BYU will need him when they get moved to a league with Kansas, Kansas State, Louisville, West Virginia and Iowa State, not to mention crossover games with Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The game in Provo with Baylor this year could be a portent of things to come.

Heber City, UT

Dear Chris B, now where did Utah end up last year in BB. At or near the bottom. Where will they end up this year in the PAC12. At or near the bottom again.

You always give me a laugh because you are so wrong 90% of the time.

Richfield, UT

@sls, if BYU ends up in big 12 it would give them a big leg up on a commit from Parker and if he comes other 4 stars will follow. I loved watching his dad play when I lived in Bay Area.

@CaptainL, watch Carlino fill it up with 3's when he becomes eligible. With Zilstra, Rogers, Hartsock, Abuo, Carlino and Harrison there will be no shortage of players that can drop the 3.

Grateful for the article about BYU hoops.

Followed with interest Harrison's recruitment and his decision to come to BYU. Enjoyed reading about how well he played in Greece. Heard rumors about his skills in playing against his teammates this past couple of months!

Looking forward to another great hoops season. Wish I could be in the Marriott Center to enjoy seeing Harrison light it up!

Cedar Hills, UT


You are the first to comment on every Utah basketball article. For someone who is such a byU football "fan" it sure is odd. hmmm

Like I said before, Ducky will be the first to be back on the Ute band wagon when they get back to the final four before byU ever does.

I would watch out for our rag tag group of kids this year too. I have a feeling that byU, without 48 points from jimmer, will be taking some smacks in the mouth. With the beatings the Uts have taken the last couple years, coach K will have their best. Will be fun to watch.

Good luck in the WCC high school gyms.

Shaybo: I hope your right and I have every reason to believe you are but consistency is what I hope to see from these guys. I hope Carlino turns out to be the real deal. I think Abuo will have a good yr but consistency is what he needs to show. Rogers should become a top 3 scorer for the cougs and Zylstra may be the surprise of the yr. I'm hoping Davies will be the leading scorer for this team.
Without the Jazz this yr the cougs are going to have to be the #1 attraction. The sooner the games start the better.
Go Cougs.
