Hmmmmm..... I guess they failed the big test. I sure hope they do better on their semester finals.

Idaho Falls, ID

I'm afraid BYU is just not a very good shooting team. Especially from the 1 and 2 positions. The free throw percentage, field goal percentage and turnovers wer abysmal. BYU can't win on the road against a better-thn-average team. BYU really misses the consistency that Hartsock brought to the team.

@ Bleed Crimson

Just wait until the December 9th headline reads:
"BYU Basketball: BYU steamrolls Utes"


Two For Flinching, that would have been nice, but it wouldn't be helping us this year, as he would have played his senior season last year. May have gotten us to 10 wins last year, and maybe one or two wins on the road, but ultimately wouldn't have helped us this year. Good on him for his success with his new team, though.

What do you think Coug fans, another rebuilding year?

Lindon Dude.....

I'm sure the Dnews would put that headline even if the cougs won on a buzzer beater.

I recall in the 79's , 89's, 90's seeing many Saturday afternoon games on TV at Wyoming, Colo State, etc. and invariably the home team won by a big margin. It is still a disappointing loss. BYU seems not to be in the top tier, though they gave Notre Dame a fair battle.


The WCC never looked so inviting. Well I guess byu ended up where they belong. What a mighty fall from the MWC this athletic program has had.

It's amazing to me that any Ute trolls would try to talk smack after losing to Sac State and looking at another season that won't get to double digit wins with the most patsy non-conference schedule in 50 years.

Cougs struggled today, playing a good Cyclone team and with several players having the flu didn't help.


GO Cyclones!!

I was there. It was ugly. Haws just never got in the flow of the game. Consequently, when the ball went in to Davies, ISU triple teamed him. That Brandon still scored 20 was amazing. Everybody else was a non-factor.

BYU helping Jabari make up his mind. Play with more heart.

All you ute trolls are gluttons for punishment. Might want to wait until after next week to bring the smack - just sayin'. Which bowl game your boys playing in?? Oh, wait.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

All you Coug fans are pretty over confident about your blowout predictions.
I'm definitely not saying I think Utah will upset the cougs next week, but BYU is not showing me that they're really that much better than the Utes this year.
How hilarious would it be to see the terrible Utes humble the cougs on their home court?
It's a long shot, but here's to hoping.

Idaho Falls, ID

I kind of agree with motorbike here. BYU is not as good as they were last year at this time and they really should be better. They should not look past Utah. With a good game plan and some hot shooting they really could upset the Cougs. But you have to admit, BYU plays pretty well in the Marriot Center and they are hard to beat.

Everyone relax. BYU will destroy Utah because BYU is really good and Utah is really bad.

Carthage, MO

Two bright spots from last Saturday's game. Davies stayed on the floor for most of the game. If he hadn't the score would have worse. And Carlino played better both in terms of scoring and running the offense. The challenge is to find one or two other players to be productive when one of your go-to guys like Haws is bottled up or having an off game. We haven't found such players yet. I hope we can before getting into conference play. Coach Rose has had similar starts in years past and has been able to get the team to figure things and get the team into the NCAA tournament. I hope he can do so with this team as well. Go Cougs.
