The NCAA Tournament parings were announced this morning.
BYU was 4 and 7 against teams that made it into the tourney.
2 and 7 on the road against tourney teams.
5 losses against San Diego, 2 in the WCC Tournament nailed the NCAA Tournament door shut.
Brugman, Law and Hanneman will be difficult to replace.

In baseball, BYU is 233-109-2 lifetime versus Utah. In almost 50 years, the Utes never won a WAC or MWC baseball championship, and it's a near lead-pipe cinch, the Utes will never win a PAC baseball championship.

It's laughable that a Utah fan would even try to compare Utah baseball to BYU baseball. Even during a relatively quiet period for BYU baseball, the Cougars have dominated the Utes. Finishing at the bottom of the PAC year-after-year-after-year doesn't prove anything.


In basketball, BYU is 129-125 lifetime versus Utah, including 7 in a row, and 11 of the last 12. Overall record during the Dave Rose era: BYU 209-66(76%); Utah 116-137(46%). Utah's baskekball glory days are over. The Utes are 0-1 in the NCAA since Bogut graduated.

It's hilarious that a Utah fan is suddenly so obsessed with BYU baseball.

Remind us again how Utah did this year, or are you too embarrassed to provide a similar summary for the Utes?

What was Utah's record against teams that made it into the tourney?
How did Utah do on the road against tourney teams?
How long has the door been nailed shut on Utah's NCAA tourney chances?
Does Utah have ANYBODY coming back next year even remotely equivalent to Brugman, Law and Hanneman?

Wow...talk about "frantic and emotional" spin there, lol!

Let me show you Utah's 'accomplishments' this last year (no spin here, nothing out of context, just straight facts):

Utah Athletic Year in Review

Football: Finished 9th in the PAC, losing record, no postseason (two sidenotes: Star safety Brian Blechen suspended three games for multiple failed drug tests for marijuana. Niasi Leota dismissed from the team for assaulting his wife)
Basketball: Finished 10th in the PAC, losing record, no postseason.
Baseball: Finished 12th in the PAC, losing record, no postseason.
Softball: Finished 9th (last) in the PAC, losing record, no postseason
Rugby: Program suspended indefinitely after members of team became intoxicated on a school sanctioned trip and assaulted an athletic trainer
Swimming: Fired head coach after he was charged with sexual assault, AD Chris Hill under investigation for knowing about this and other accusations of abuse and doing nothing.

I have no idea if Utah even has golf, track and field, or cross country teams.

Regardless, wow, that's a heck of a year for Utah.

No wonder you and AZUTE1 are here on BYU's boards showing your support. It must be hard to support Utah right now.

"I have no idea if Utah even has golf, track and field, or cross country teams."

Golf: Finished 12th in the PAC, no postseason.
Tennis: Finished 7th of 8, 13-12 record, no postseason

Only the women have Track & Field and Cross Country
