It thought it was mean of the DN to publish in its print edition the picture of
Brandon Davies in tears. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
This was great improvement over the results against Baylor in the recent past.
Games like these are invaluable in teaching players how to play in tournaments.
We might be able to make some noise in a couple of years with building blocks
Great comment motorbike. You surprised me. Hang in there with your Utes. They
are doing it right and will be back in time.
Thanks for the props motorbike. I don't mind the occasional banter, as
long as it's balanced with objectivity. The Utes who would ridicule an NIT
Final Four have lost their objectivity and are only driven by hate or
bitterness.Congrats to the Cougs on what turned out to be a great
season. NIT final four is not too shabby for a young team that started three
Sophs and two of the next three off the bench were Frosh.Will miss
Davies and Zylstra, and looking forward to welcoming Collinsworth back along
with a couple of impressive Frosh. Another 24 or 25 win season is likely.
I'm bothered by this now in vogue term "cougar nation" or "ute
nation" or "gator nation". This is a gross misrepresentation of the
term "nation." I am a BYU fan, I am not a nation, all the fans are fans,
we are not a nation. I am not employed by BYU, I don't play for BYU, I
don't live at BYU, I am just a BYU fan. Please stop using that meaningless
Congrats to the Cougs on a nice run in the NIT. They showed a lot of heart and
desire to improve. The extra games certainly couldn't have hurt the guys
who will be returning next year and their team chemistry - I sure wouldn't
have minded the Utes getting the same kind of opportunity. Obviously
there's still some building to do but maybe the Utes will get some sort of
a post season opportunity next year.Anyway, congrats to Weber State and to
BYU on a couple of good late season finishes.
That was a nice end to an otherwise frustrating season. The Y was
able to play four more games while: Handling (easily) Pac 12 opponent UW,
bouncing Mercer, being the first non-conference foe to defeat Southern Miss in
their own arena in a long while and giving Baylor all they could handle. The Cougars represented the state well as did the Wildcats from Weber
State.Thanks for a good finish fellas and here's to next year
having at least one team from this state making the Big Dance.
Credit coach Rose and the team. With how things ended in the wcc, I predicted
that they didn't have the heart to advance in the NIT. They proved me
This Utah fan doesn't usually comment on byu articles, but props to the
cougars on some impressive play in the NIT. They had a good run. Not bad for a
Ute fans are so juvenile, go post on your own team's game...oh wait, the
Ute's aren't playing anywhere.To win big games you have to
hit big shots, BYU didn't. Carlino hit three 3s, Davies couldn't hit
anything and missed his free throws late in the game. Zylstra throws up a brick,
and that's the story. Yes, I thought the officiating was ticky tacky stuff,
it wasn't a physical game, but the refs called almost any touching.
Weird.Baylor played Haws very tough because they know only he can
beat them. Davies is not going to beat anybody by himself, he can't shoot,
can't hit free throws, and he didn't get any rebounds in this game.
Zylstra was a complete non-factor, and the BYU bench did not show up tonight.
Good luck in the 2nd half Cougs! Just need to start hitting a few 3's.
