Yes, Cougar fans were anticipating the game against Portland. We were
anticipating seeing our team get back on the court after a week off. We were
anticipating being able to see them bounce back after two bad losses in a row.
We were anticipating being able to see them work out some of the defense issues
they had against SF and SD. We were anticipating being able to see Haws bounce
back after a tough stretch.The anticipation had nothing to do with
the opponent and all to do with what we wanted to see from our team. And the
rest of the Cougar fans reading this will now say, "Duh!"
@indy"you all really throttled them pilots"I
actually didn't play in the game, otherwise it would've been the other
Good win, the Y needs to build some momentum for Gonzaga and the WCC tournament.
@indyNot exactly sure where the comments regarding Y
fans continue thinking their team is top shelf comes from (Certainly nothing
that I've seen on this articles comments). I read most of the comments on
Y and U articles. It seems to me that the majority of deluded fans are from the
U. The Y basketball program is not headed down because of one season. A top 25
recruiting class coming in would lead an unbiased observer to believe that the Y
is going to continue its run as the best team in the state.
" .... Meanwhile big brother has national power Arizona coming with a top 10
ranking to our place .... "That's awesome Chrissy. Maybe
you'll be there with maybe 5,000 to watch your team get crushed again.Meanwhile 3rd ranked Gonzaga coming to the Marriott Center where 23,000
will be on hand.
"Meanwhile big brother has national power Arizona coming with a top 10
ranking to our place"So you're saying it's fun to see
BYU win at home and the next say see Utah get crushed at home? I think I like
Utah's membership in that conference too.
@Chrissy BAnd BYU will play National Power Gonzaga (higher ranked
than Arizona)in the Marriott Center, to a full house (20k) and a National ESPN
audience.BYU, unlike Utah, has actually beaten Arizona recently
(twice).So enjoy your empty arena on Sunday without a National television
audience.And BYU will continue to recruit the best talent in the State.
Article is about the "nation" anticipating a game against #247...It wasn't about who is better between PAC12 Utah and WCC BYU. Stay
on topic children...glad you were excited for your game this week....You all
really throttled Portland...them Pilots took a real whiping.....
@indycrimson"I think our program is heading up..."IF your program manages to win TWO more games, only a very slim possibility,
Krysko will only equal the 13 wins Boylen had in his WORST season - and
that's only if you count Utah's two wins over NAIA and D-II teams.Some improvement.
indycrimsonUtah fans are simply deluding themselves into believing
that the Utes are close to BYU.Unfortunately for U, that's only
wishful thinking; RPI rankings prove that you're not even close:#67 BYU(19-8) > #160 Utah(11-13)
IndycrimsonYour hate is showing. Please show us one comment where
anyone has said BYU is 'top shelf' or comes off as if BYU is 'top
shelf'.You're just another anti-BYU fan makin' stuff up. One thing is for sure... BYU is better than the Utes this year, last
year, the year before and the year before that...Some of us are
hoping the 'strugglin' Utes' can string together 'two in a
row' but...... not on Sunday. LOL
Huge win cougars. This wcc stuff sure is exciting. I personally prefer #10
Arizona at huntsman center than Portland at Marriott center. But that may be
Indy crimson:You have 2 posts. You wrote in your first post
"nuff said. Out" Why did you post again?"The Utes are
heading up and BYU is heading down."The Utes will have their 6th
losing season in 8 years and may or may not have a mass exodus. That's
improvement? Wow. Hard times for you.BYU certainly is down this
year, but will win 20 games, and an NIT bid is likely. Out of curiosity will
you be one of the Ute fans that criticizes BYU should they make the NIT, and
then turn around and herald the Utes next appearance in the CBI or NIT as
I sure hope the NIT recognizes BYU as a powerhouse among the lower than 68 teams
tier. Thanks for the good win tonight Cougars. I saw some good assists among
the run and fire-it-up offense. And Davies was incredibly better at the free
throw line. Great job Brandon!
Nevada CougMy opinion is that both teams are bad...Ute fans
know it and are pulling for improvement...Y fans keep acting like your
team is top shelf...I think our program is heading up and your
program is going the other direction...just my opinion...
Utah has just 3 wins in conference and has pretty much no chance of playing in a
post-season tournament. Not only that, BYU beat Utah head-to-head; which Utah
fans are constantly saying is more important than overall record. Exactly what
is it that the BYU haters keep crowing about?
Meanwhile big brother has national power Arizona coming with a top 10 ranking to
our placeByu's best win of the whole season is not as good as
utah's top FOUR wins I love my PAC 12 membership. It's
great. So much better than being a weak coast conference member.
Anticipates?#247 in the nation?Nuf said...out
