The GREAT thing about this early season schedule is 'we' still have
ranked Oregon on the road... Today didn't happen... Can the 20th? Just go
and do it! It is a lot closer to home and could have a corresponding fan
contingent... In fact... Hmmm.... Perhaps my bro and I will be in attendance...
Huge game for the Cougs. Another loss could be devastating. Keep Putney in
check, make free throws, and stay out of foul trouble will be the key. If not,
BYU is in trouble.
After 2 close, competitive and exciting games against nationally ranked teams
that just barely fell short, we're due for a defining win.
CougFaninTX"This is essentially a home game for UMass."True; the MassMutual Center for UMass is much like EnergySolutions Arena
for BYU, a short drive from campus to an arena in which they play at least one
game every year.A win for BYU today would not only help with
securing an at-large berth, it would help improve seeding.
If Carlino and Haws are both on their game, BYU wins this one. Need 50 points
out of those two.
This will be a big win for the NCAA resume. The teams look evenly matched on
paper, but it's really hard to consider this a neutral site. This is
essentially a home game for UMass.If Mika and Austin stay out of
foul trouble, I like our chances.
Please just win in Massachusetts!! The momentum to carry past Prairie View
A&M next week prior to Utah and Oregon the next two Saturday's would be
huge.... x-2 is a great way to enter conference play... x-2 against ranked
opponents is a great way to build confidence for making a deep run in March...
Please don't just be an every other year Cougars team... Be that special
team that appeared to be on the court as early as in Maples Pavilion. More than
the great squad that opened up the season a few seasons ago 10-0 before running
into the brick wall of UCLA... Yes, be as bright as the hope is shining before
I fear that this could spell big foul trouble for the bigs of BYU. Let's
hope that I'm wrong. It would be great to come away with a win.
Go out, represent, and play a great game!! Hopefully we come out with a win!Great time to be a fan!Go Cougs!
