If I were some sort of Utah fan, I'd be "Marking it down" as the Mighty, unchallenged Pac 12 plays a weak, cream puff foe from the weak, cream puff conference known as the WCC.

But since that worked out so well for Utah the last time they tried those claims, I'll just say that I hope BYU wins! Should be a good game. I hope Haws goes off for 50 or something.

Oregon about to give byu .250 record against the PAC 12

Interesting that the #4 PAC 12 team is favored against #2 powerhouse west coast team. And no, losing collinsworth isn't the reason Oregon is favored.

And don't blame the loss on him being out.

Oregon: winning team!
Byu: losing team!

Sick of it

Go Cougs!

someone should tell carlino he's not jimmer

Since the start of the WCC and including this game, Carlino is shooting 10-39, and 1 for 17 from 3. He needs to step up in the second half if the cougars are going to have a shot.

Nice to see another conference brother put byu in their place, just as we did months ago. I wonder if Oregon will beat them by more than we did. I hope so.

This was one of those "gimme" games in the brackets.

Even after the committee's gift of a 10 seed to byu, they're showing they don't belong with these kinds of teams.

C'mon cougs! Just bein' there is good, but winning is better! You can DO THIS!

Y making too many unforced mistakes. Oregon playing really well. Y still has a chance. Go Cougs!

I can't figure out who's "in control" in this one.

Oregon is playing like Oregon and byu is playing like byu. No real surprises in this game.

WCC may have zero teams playing after the first round.

Would this be the same power conference that just got blown off the court by Pittsburg?

Even after the committee didnt let us in we still showed we belong with these kinds of teams and byu doesnt because we led marys for a long time!

Go Utes!

Oregon: Winning team
byu : losing team

No, its not the refs fault.
No, its not because Collinsworth is hurt
No, its not the weather inside the arena that impacts byu more than Oregon

Oregon is better. That's why they have more points.

No U Won't

We saw how prestigious the PAC 12 was today with how well Colorado played against Pitt. Nice showing by the Buffs!

Cheyenne, WY

Nice comeback now hang on to the momentum.
Good Luck
Saint Marys already beat down the Pac-12 this post season.

Got to love ute fans. No more bowls to go to anymore, and can't get in the big dance.

Oh, well we can hope BYU loses...

It must be rough being a ute fan.

Talking about a PAC 12 beat down, did u catch the CU game? They almost broke the u record for the fewest points in not only a half, but for a game! U got to love the mighty PAC. Thinking about it, they would make a good rival for u. I can just see the final score of a Bball game.....6 to 2 for CU.

Bring Gary back
Murray, UT

Come on fellow Utes. We did just lose to St. Mary's we can't talk. Our day will come.

Sandy, UT

No defense, no offensive threat, looks about like the game the other night with Utah getting beat up by a lesser conference team. Of course this time the tables have flipped.
