Long Beach State got the shaft. They should have gotten the at-large bid for having beaten UC Irvine in the semi-finals of the MPSF. Politics in sports.

Chris after your inspiring comment on the woman who was converted to the LDS church,I can never say anything negative about one of your posts again. Go cougars!

BYU's victories over UCLA and Penn State show that the Cougars can come back and beat good teams who start strong. Now they need to come out firing on all cylinders from the beginning in the biggest match of the year.

Go Cougs! Its been fun watching your matches this year!

@MGB - agreed.

@Chris - I know you are controversial from time to time - perhaps more just to get a rise. You remind me that perhaps not a lot has changed in the 35 years since I attended the U, when I swore I'd never set foot on the campus of BYU - when it "seemed" that there were more folks there that were concerned with cheering for whoever BYU was competing against, and so much less concerned about following their own teams. Oh well. That attitude helped me to see things in a different perspective. I watch/read the news and take pride whenever any of our state's teams do well.

In this case, Go Cougs!

Hey Chris B,

We have National Championships on the line today for both Volleyball and Rugby. Our women's softball team is one win away from a Conference Championship (which will most likely happen today since they are playing two games). What is going on with u today?

We all know you will be glued to every game rooting for the opposing team. So glad we can provide your entertainment, I mean after all, nothing exciting is happening on the hill.

Goooooooo Cougars!!!!!!!

Go Anteaters! Go Cougars! Both great teams who did what they needed to all season to get to the championship. May all the players be able to put out their best this evening, leaving it all on the court, and therefore feel satisfied with the outcome. It's been a great matchup all year and should be another one tonight. My best to all involved--players, coaches, trainers, referees, etc. Let's have a great match!!!
