Summary is wrong about Forde's opinion of the Cougars. He says they are a dark horse to win the WCC tournament, and actually picks them to do it. Calls them (rightly) a bubble team for the NCAA's, not a dark horse to make it in.

Also, gives special mention of Matt Carlino, in the weekly "under-the-radar love" section.

Levin-
Read it again....Dark Horse refers to making the NCAA.

You need to read the article again, Levin is correct. All of the paragraphs in that section are referring to his picks to win the conferences tournaments and get automatic bids to the NCAA tournament. BYU is the dark horse to get the Auto Bid

Sorry, OBNS, but I gotta go with Levin on this one. The comment about BYU being a dark horse was in the section of article where Forde was doing a rundown of the smaller conference tourneys. Forde stated that BYU was his dark horse to win that and was on the bubble for the NCAA. Either way, let's hope the Cougs win the conference tourney and do well in the Big Dance.

Just read this part, and I think it's pretty clear about the "Dark horse" comment being about winning the Conference Tournament.

"Minutes pick: BYU. The Cougars are on the bubble and will be motivated to earn the automatic bid and remove all doubt about their NCAA chances."

Good luck, cougars. However, if both the Y and the U fail to make the NCAA tournament I would love to see a rematch in the NIT. I think it would be much like the last football game where both team's fans really believed they would win. (And you know how the football game turned out!)

Sorry, I let my "Evelyn Woods" speed reading get carried away. It is about the WCC tournament.
