You play them as they come...but that's a terrible team from a pathetic conference. But...congrats to the cougs, keep iimproving.

The real reason BYU was not offered to join the pac 12 is that those liberal schools can't stand losing to a conservative and religious school. Neutral court and refs on their side can't stop BYU's dominance over pac 12.

I was impressed. Even though Davies spent too much time on the bench, they looked very tough inside. Austin was amazing, and Winder looked good at the point. The shooting was great, but we would have won even without the outside firepower because of the inside game.

It was good to see.

I love winning but this is really nothing to brag about. Bad team from a bad conference.

Cougs dismantle the fourth ranked team in the PAC12. Utes get dismantled by seventh ranked team from the WAC. Life's good.

Do I hear the Utes calling for Boylen's return?

Yeah, the PAC has taken it on the chin again today. I think the MWC and the WCC are better. That is embarrassing.

Like last year against Arizona, won't play us on our home floor, won't play without their own refs, and still get mauled by the Cougars from a supposedly lessor conference. The PAC should change their self-appellation "The Conference of Pansies"

Quit hating on the PAC-12 just because BYU didn't get invited. Its no ones fault that BYU didn't get invited to any BCS conference. Whether indy works for BYU or not, only time will tell. But as of right now, the only exposure BYU is getting is on ESPN, the PAC-12 championship game was played on FOX last night. Will BYU get to play on FOX??? Not unless it goes undefeated and is invited to a BCS game. At the time, in RECENT years, only four teams made it to a BCS game against the power conferences? Utah, TCU, BSU, and Hawaii. BYU will have to do that to gain respect. Is BYU part of a BCS conference? No; but maybe in the future if BYU gets rid of their pride and massive ego, they will accept and be accepted.

Weber State will beat BYU next week. Lillard will have his way.

And that folks, is why the PAC is called the conference of chumpions... er, I mean champions. Hardly a tune-up game for a real basketball conference like the WCC.

@AntelopeValleyUte,

What makes you think that we are jealous that we weren't invited to the PAC 12? I watched the championship game last night, pathetic. No jealousy there. The PAC 12's basketball teams are great as well. . . oh, wait a second. Trust me, no one is jealous. Oh by the way, I watch our football games on ESPN. You? We wouldn't have that if we were in the PAC 12.

Agreed. Just look at all the egos here by cougar fans that can't accept the fact they are on the outside looking in.
BYU will choke like they always do in the NCAA tournament. The PAC has 442 national titles in all sports. How many does the conference that BYU fully belongs to? None! The WCC has a handful. BYU fans need to get over themselves and stop overdosing on rhodes rolls and green jello!

@NightOwlAmerica,

Man, way to base your pride on someone else's accomplishments. You talk like Utah had a hand in all those 442 National Titles. "We lost to Colorado, but that's okay, because we belong to a conference that won 442 national titles that we had nothing to do with." Too bad the best team in the south division (which is where you guys are) didn't even stand a chance against Oregon.

Well since I specifically did not say Utah, and you did. Those numbers include national titles won by Utah.
It would be very helpful for you to read posts on this thread by your fellow BYU fans ripping the PAC 12.
Envy abounds here.

Nothing like riding the coat tails of Gonzaga & St. Mary's.

Excellent win. Lot of depth and poise. Winder is getting more comfortable at point. I think the team is starting to figure things out. Oh, and Carlino and Collingsworth are going to join them too. It's looking good.

I wonder why ute fans are posting on BYU articles. They seem very uptight tonight.

You mean the same Gonzaga team BYU "Jimmered" last year in the big dance?

The Utes would be riding anyone's coattails for those 440-some-odd championships would they? Think about it, genius.

4-2 horrible? BCS means N O T H I N G come basketball season. It is only the very corrupted way to determine a champion. Come basketball season all conferences have the same shot to get in the dance, make noise and if a cinderella emerges win it. BCS is ONLY football.... Otherwise.... The very laughable in football bcs BIG EAST is the only of the BCS making noise this year..... Have you noticed the polls? Have you noticed the records.... It is time for most of you to reach down, grow a brain and USE IT!
