Losing in the road to a PAC 12 conference of champion and top 25 team in close game is respectable

Losing at home to a nobody from a nobody conference? Embarrassing

Think the big 12 is impressed?

Hey, Cougs players, let me help out a bit. No need to be "stunned." Um, this may be hard, but .... you are not nearly as "good" and solid as you think you were. I'm beyone frustrated with each game. Seems like finding more ways how to lose each game.

BYU's lack of discipline on offense and defense hurt them again. They play a lot of zone, and if they give up penetration like tonight, they'll have a hard time winning. Haws needs to get used to teams being physical with him. When you're as good as he is, they're going to play you tight. Every great player learns how to move without the ball when facing pressure, and he will. He gets rattled a bit and gets off of his game.

This team just has no heart and no leadership. They can not stick to a plan and Rose has no answers and no bench. NIT is all they can hope for and maybe one win in that tourny,

WOW. I am the biggest BYU fan out there but the Cougars show no heart and fight anymore. They are soft on interior defense and can't remember how to play man-to-man on the outside. Can't blame this one on the refs. I think they are done for the year. Oh well, at least they are not the Utes.

Wow, what an ugly night for Utah's 2 "premier" programs. Utes and Cougs both stinkin it up.

I'm not sure anyone within one of the "real conferences" even knew there was such thing as San Francisco Community College.

You learn something new every day.

After having watched byu basketball and football go something like 2-20 against the only noteworthy opponents the past two years, you can practically hear the sigh of relief from Big 12 nation everywhere for having NOT invited byu.

The big 12 made the right call.

By not calling.

Smells an awful lot like karma in here.

I was at the game and what made me sick was the coughs just going straight down the court and hoping for a foul. No passes no moving the ball around. Looked like church ball at its worst!!

Lights out, indeed! Cougars fans came to see the team bounce back at home and got that at the end of the half, so some even headed home on a snowy Saturday night, only to find out that the win they left was taken away by an incredible 3-point barrage exhibition. USF did what I always thought an underdog should do when down 15 at the others guys gym, bring in your rainbow makers and let them fly, what do you got to lose? It sure worked out with the Cougars going cold and losing any type of transition game. And don't blame the refs when a hot shooting team is executing, and our team is floundering without cohesion, consistency, and leadership. Doolin couldn't help but remind me of the film, One On One, with Robby Benson back in the 70s. When the Cougars thought it was in the bag, they shut-down mentally and lost any edge. At least they were in a great place to watch a team have the best game of their season. Lesson learned, but it looks like more is yet to be taught.

And the nauseating pain goes on! We lost a chance to the NCAA last week and now we may not even get an invite to the NIT. Oh how I wish things were different! But, there's always next year. I know we the fans are tired of hearing that but it seems to be our lot and the cause of all the hate and continuous disrespect from the haters and those who lives to mock us on these boards.

I still hope for a prayer and a miracle though.

Go Cougars!

Stunned Cougars??

Sorry guys, this is a pathetic team. No talent or leadership here.

NIT is the best place for BYU to be this year, although if they keep this up, they may lose the ability to have some of these games at home (or even make it to the NIT). Average season is looking a little more like a bad season now.

Very disappointing to see the Cougs play the way they did in the 2nd half.

On the bright side the sandwich I bought by Portal F was really good. Glad I ate it before the game started.

The chances of Any team from Utah in the NCAA are looking bleak. The only team playing with heart is the maligned Utes. There is always next year.

Pathetically embarrassing.

It's good to see them consistantly playing up to theie abilities. Maybe , if they are very careful who they choose, they can schedule some high school or jc teams, in hopes of boosting their record next year.
