Wow, this comment board got dumb real fast.Pertaining to the actual
game, I was very happy to be able to watch it from across the country and very
impressed with both squads. Very evenly matched the whole way. The first set
could've gone either way, and the next three saw each team taking turns
dominating the set. The fifth was back and forth, and just when BYU seemed to
have it easily in hand, the Utes stormed back until just a perfect shot from the
Cougars' best player to make it match point. Would've loved to see the
Utes win, but very encouraged by what I saw for the conference schedule coming
utefeverUtah finished 1944 with a 6-1 record:3 regular
season wins against Idaho St(2) and Colorado College(1)an opening
round loss in the NIT, the premier tournament of the day3 wins in
the most watered-down NCAA tournament in history(the vast majority
of schools had suspended their basketball programs and the few remaining teams
were composed entirely of Freshmen and a few Sophomores)The only
neutral national organization of the day in the business of selecting national
champions in basketball named Army(15-0) the 1944 national champion.btw, the Utes haven't won an NCAA tournament game in almost a decade.
Congratulations cougars.There is a slight chance I may have been
wrong in my prediction of BYU's demise in independence. I felt the biggest
impact would be felt in these "minor" sports. I thought it would be the
exception when a talented athlete would choose the Y if they had the opportunity
to play in a conference such as the PAC-12 with national exposure against the
top teams in the nation. Yet with the Y's win over the U in both soccer
and volleyball, unless their best players are juniors and seniors, it would seem
the Y has been able to attract competitive athletes. Time will tell how right
or wrong I was.
Hey Chris B remember the Mountain west Comference...BYU 139 championships in all
sports and Utah 39. BYU ad 100 more championships than Utah. Sounds like pre
dominance. In the Pac 12 I expect Utah to have 0 championships in the olympic
sports and Maybe 1-2 in the Big 2 Football and Basketball. Amd I'm talking
about over the next 10 years. Nice move to the pac 12> What a Joke of an
overall athletic program!
Its a byu rivalry game.Not for Utah.Our rivals our
Colorado, USC and UCLA.We don't have rivals that are below us
in non-power conferences.
@utefeverKeep trumpeting the false assertion that utah has won a
basketball national championship if it helps you to feel good about yourself. It
has never happened and you cannot find anything to support that falsehood.
My dad can whip your dad! Can not! Can too! Can not! Can too! Please do
something useful with your life! Grow up! Go help a little old lady cross the
street, do something, anything and I promise you will feel better about yourself
and your self worth and value to the world will not always be attached to a
@PoymanThat is funny that you can't even spell Soccer. Go Hard,Go
Fast and find a dictionary!! Keep dreaming on "soon to be football". 3
in a row,4 out of 5, 8 out of 11 and most importantly 56-34-4. Utah has
dominated the little brothers from the beginning. As for basketball, 1 NC, 4
Final Fours and tons of sweet sixteens. You may want to compare that to your
How sweet it is! Within the space of about a week the Cougar women give their
Utah counterparts their only losses of the season (so far) in both Soccer and
Volleyball.Love the Cougar Women!(In fact, I married
Volleyball, Soccor, Baseball, Basketball, Rugby, soon to be Football... Any
sport with the exception of Gymnastics and maybe Skiing the Cougars dominate
our little brothers and sister on the hill... Don't lose heart though,
Gymnastic season is right around the corner...
That was awesome. Just paving the way for Saturday nights football game. It
would be a nice farewell game with older brother as he leaves on a two year
mission. We will you send you out with style :)RISE UP COUGARS!!!
