Zags'll take early lead, then wear Y down as they fight all game 2 catch up, Zags by 10.

In typical byu fashion, they'll fall flat in any noteworthy game.

Zags 78
byu 62

Yes, mark that down.

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.

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.....

When 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.

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.

@Two For Flinching
Also 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.

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!

@ Dallas realist

My numbers are from Sagarin.

Conference 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 what was.
