No real problem with the article except for the part about Utah having a shot at the NCAA's. Unless they win the conference tournament, their joke of an out of conference schedule has doomed them to the CBI if they are lucky.

Every time someone lists Utah's win - loss record this year they should be required to put an asterisk next to it. They are 14-4 because out of over 300 D 1 teams, they played the softest non-conference schedule in the country this year. The worst part of that is Utah actually has a pretty good team this year, but not nearly as good as their record would suggest. Just think they could be 18 - 0 if they had played a few more NAIA and bottom feeder D - 2 teams.

"Wrong, we're better than you because we OWN scoreboard."

Which scoreboard is that?

BYU has won 11 of the last 13, 12 of 16 during the Dave Rose era, 129-126 overall.

The only one that matters this season: 84-61

The 12 of 16 had more to do with Utah being horrible, we beat ourselves.

DeepBlue, I've never seen series records on a scoreboard. I see a score on the scoreboard. The one this year was 81-64 in favor of the red team.

#38 BYU
#122 Utah

will be the most pertinent scores in a few weeks

If the Utes don't improve their RPI dramatically by then, Utah's mid-December upset of BYU won't mean a thing in the larger picture.

CG, that had absolutely nothing to do with my comment, but I'll play along. If the Cougs don't maintain that RPI in a little less than two months, their RPI-boosting losing record against top teams in the nonconference won't mean a thing, either.
