CA Reader...Those two commentators were NOT BYU guys, for the
record! ESPN U did that game?! I agree with your point, but when you get your
facts screwed up it makes your whole comment look bad!
BYU fans crushing the PATHETIC attempts of conference dungeon dwellers. Classic!
I'm sorry but I have never seen basketball on any level as a battle. The
WCC refs make the old WAC refs look like professors of the task. The LMU/USF
game should never have gone to OT. Not one, not two but three USF players
mugged the LMU guy and the refs swallowed their whistles. I can't believe
that the announcers, both BYU guys, sit there and say the refs are letting the
players decide the game. I'm sorry but referees making the right calls at
the right times is part of deciding the game. How can a player decide the game
when the refs let guys mug each other? Every time one of these refs make a
charge call I think they are trying to be part of the game, which no referee in
any sport should ever be.
"I love my Pac 12 membership!"I wonder if they love you as
much as you love them.
"You might want to start with San Francisco ....... " And teams like LMU
in the late 80's with Hank Gathers (RIP) that team averaged over 100 points
for at least three years.In the meantime utah continues to drag down
the once proud Pac 10. I wonder if they are as happy to have them as chrissy is
for his "membership".
I hope the cougs can beat San Diego.
And aside from Kafusi's play, since when has the Cougs played physical at
all this season? The team can't just flip the switch and try to play like
they haven't. Hellooooooooo, NIT!
patriotInstead of throwing out small-mined hyperbole, you should do
a little more research into the history of teams in the WCC. You might want to
start with San Francisco, winner of back-to-back National Championships as a
member of the WCC.
@ Chris B ("Obsessing over all things BYU since 1995"),Congrats to you and the Utes for qualigying for "your" post season
tournament. Get used to looking forward to the conference tournament as you post
season. It must has been invigorating to have all that tension, excitement and
urgency the last several weeks wondering and hoping if you were going to get the
bid, and then finally achieving your goal, and a ten seed at that. Not too
shabby.We love your BCS membership. Dominating the southern division
in football, and now schooling the conference of champions on the hardwood.
It's a good thing Coach Wooden coached when he did. He wouldn't have
had a chance at half the suceess he enjoyed if the mighty Utes had been in his
conference back then. Onward and Upward! There's no stopping U now.
Hope Davies & Carlino play smart bb, as too many mt possessions will doom Y.
Is Heywood now ready yo contribute? Need to play deep to keep players fresh...
patriot"When you play in a small pond you soon settle to that
level yourself."Like "settling" to #1-ranked team in the
entire country and probable #1 overall seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament?If that's the level BYU is "settling" to, Cougar Nation
will gladly "settle" for that!
BYU has shrunk - now competing with San Diego and and other small college no
names. When you play in a small pond you soon settle to that level yourself.
"BYU went from battling San Diego State to San Diego."Yet
BYU's new conference includes the #1 team in the nation and BYU still owns
U.149-145, 7 straight, 11 of 12, 3 straight blowouts in the HCCongratulations on being the San Diego of the PAC! You'd fit right
in with the bottom dwellers of the WCC.The future of BYU basketball
Chris B,I love your Pac 12 membership too, and your inspirational
crusade to the impressive 10th place finish in the conference. Better storm the
court for that one!
Gonzaga, and Saint Mary are both better then any PAC basketball team.Utes would be the bottom dweller.Being the conference punching
bag, someone is proud of his membership? No pride!Go figure.
Crissy,I doubt the NCAA will give 5 slots to an average league this year.
They may get three and one of them WON'T be Utah. The NIT won't
invite Utah either. Sad state of affairs on the hill. Enjoy YOUR last year as
a BCS member. By the way, how much are your annual dues in this defunct club?
I still cannot figure out how 10th place in an average conference is worth
bragging about. Do you realize how silly you sound to people outside of SLC who
do not care about U of U sports programs. You are a very small minnow in a very
@Chris BYou realize that Utah is in 10th place thanks to their great
win last night over the last place PAC 12 team? BYU will be just fine in the
years to come. Utah, not so much.
@ Chris B. that is special that you can celebrate the success of the other
Pac-12 teams. you pac-12 teams and fans must really have a tremendous unity in
I love how Chris B is so interested with BYU's success, and insists on
being the first one to comment.Needlesstosay I believe in Coach Rose
and think it will be a fun tourney to watch. GO BYU
BYU went from battling San Diego State to San Diego.LOLI
love my Pac 12 membership!Even with the #1 team in the nation, your
conference is respected enough to currently show 2 bids.Pac 12 will
have at least 5.
