The Zags were over rated. They get a puffed up record by playing a lot of not
so good, small schools and then get into real competition and go down. They
could easily have been the first-ever # 1 seed to go down to a # 16 with the
Southern game. Any good team can appear great by playing mostly cream puffs and
gearing up once or twice for real competition. The Utes have found how
challenging it can be when you play top competition every week. The same can be
said for football and some of the "independent" schools, save for Notre

@swoopThe same can be said for you.
When was the last time BYU lost to a Pac12 team? I know it wasn't this year
or anytime in the recent past.
Good thing BYU fans don't define the success of their program by the
other members of their conference, otherwise this might be bothersome.
Here's one BYU fan that cheered for Wichita State all the way. Congrats to
you 86 & 90 on "your" great weekend.
But.. but Gonzaga was iron clad proof that the mighty WCC was superior to the
Pac12! How are we going to spin this now?At least Utah didn't
recently beat a sweet 16 team. That would be hard to stomach.
Don't forget New Mexico loosing to Harvard. More crickets.
I agree with 86&90 Ute, last week I believed that the Zags were over rated
and would not make the sweet 16. Wish I could have done that with the rest of my
brackets. As a whole the WCC seems to have been a over rated. The PAC on the
other hand was a little under rated as a conference, sure missed that one.
And that has what to do with the Utes? In what post season tournament are the
I'm shocked anyone was still following this ponderous tournement by the
time this game was played. Boring! March Monotony baby!

So much for the #1 team in the country from the Weak Coast Conference (WCC).
Only making it to the round of 32 as a #1 seed? That's sad for BYU's
Everyone knew the Zags were going to be the first 1 seed out. Let's
review. PAC 12 has Oregon and Arizona representing in the Sweet Sixteen! And the
