@ Dallas realistMy numbers are from Sagarin.@ Down
underConference play counts in SOS and Utah has played more than two
games in the PAC. When it comes to schedule's lets talk about what is, not
It'll be nice to see Utah start to win again so there fans will have
something to write about in there own articles. They must care a lot about BYU
than there own team or they wouldn't follow them so much. Something Utah
should realize is that the Pac 12 is a weak basketball conference right now, in
fact the WCC could be better from top to bottom and that's saying
something.Anyway about more important things love the Cougars but I
can't look at this game as a possible victory when they've been beaten
in just about any important game this year, in fact they haven't come
close. With that said they had been playing there best basketball later, more
players are playing better than early, the emergence of Carlino makes a big
difference. So they're better now than when they played most of the other
big games, but they did lose to St. Mary's in a game that St. Mary's
had no business winning after that big start. So I don't think this will be
too close in the end. Hope they prove me wrong!
@Two For FlinchingAlso on espn byu is 48 and utah is 50 when it comes to
SOS. I think it i safe to say you are the one that has no leg to stand on.
@Two For Flinchingwhere are you pulling your stats from?According to
CBS sports BYU's SOS is number 59 while Utahs is 64.
2-fer ,No, I was actually speaking of the powerhouses of Willamette High
(who knows),Sacramento State (8-8), Idaho State (4-15), Central Michigan
(9-8), College of Idaho High (really?), Texas State(5-14). At least BYU has the
clout and guts to play with the big boys, even if they lose a few. By the way
the PAC 10.2 is just under .500 with the WCC in head-to-head this year. As I
read it Utsies are at the bottow of their conference and BYU is at the top of
theirs. I don't need to check that fact, everyone knows it.Double check your numbers prior to conference play and check BYU's prior
to conference play. BYU is #74 after 4 conference games and UTAH is #69 after
two games. BYU's high is #35 and their low is #158. Utah's high is
#45 and low is...drum roll....#335 out of 347. Classy!!Sorry little
brother, Utah can't compete, again.
Down UnderWhen you say tough teams, would you be referring to
Tennessee St., Georgia St., Eastern New Mexico and Northern Arizona? Or would
it be the gauntlet of Portland, Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount, San Diego, and San
Francisco?When you claim that BYU comes to play every night I guess
you're choosing to ignore the beat downs administered by Florida St.,
Notre Dame, and Iowa St.?Like it or not BYU's SOS is in the
120's, while Utah's in in the 60's. You guys really should lay
off the schedule smack because you just don't have a leg to stand on.
If Carlino plans on being the one to lead us to victory expect disaster. When
he tries to force his game we fall apart. Better plan on a 20 point loss.....
Brother B,I marked it down. Let's chat tomorrow. Yes the Cougs may
lose in Spokane but at least they come to play every night and by the way, BYU
HAS a winning record and has the courage to schedule tough teams start to finish
and not pad their schedule with high school teams just to get some W's.Feels good to be at the top of a decent conference and not the bottom feeders
of any conference.
In typical byu fashion, they'll fall flat in any noteworthy game.Zags 78byu 62Yes, mark that down.
Zags'll take early lead, then wear Y down as they fight all game 2 catch
up, Zags by 10.
