Congrats Lady Utes! Opportunity presented because of the body of work against
ranked opponents, and for being totally awesome in general! Represent the Ute
Tribe with pride, and go out and play your best this weekend. We'll be
rooting for you! Go Utes Softball! Go Utes!
I think Byu should be hosting the regional be cuse Utah was only #5in the
conference BYU won ther conference.
To those complaining that BYU isn't the host, take a look at there
schedule. The team was 3-7 against ranked opponents and hasn't played a
ranked team since losing 3 straight to UCLA and Oregon in March. Utes were 11-7
against ranked teams and played a much more difficult schedule. BYU has a good
team but beating a bunch of unranked WCC teams in 22 of their last 23 games
doesn't get them a home seed for the post season.
Lol. Loving the byu angst, even over softball.Go Utes!
Jackie Treehorn absolutely nailed it!Go Utes!

Another opportunity for the Utes to prove their athletic prowess over the
Cougars"You mean like the loss to BYU this season? Man, that is
some kind of prowess!..........................The
current score in the Deseret Duel is Utah 26 BYU 9. Looks like athletic prowess
"BYU should have been selected as a host for the first round Regionals, not
utah.""Every team in the region has a better record and all
of them should have hosted before Utah"I'd hear an argument
on why Utah didn't deserve to host, but please, there is no logical
argument that BYU (or Mississippi State or Fordham) should've hosted.BYU is 20th in RPI and both national rankings.Mississippi State is
30th in RPI and 27th and 26th in the polls.Fordham is 44th in RPI and
received no votes in the polls.Utah is 19th in RPI and 13th and 14th in
the polls.It will be a good, competitive regional tournament, and
the pairings and location were done right.

The worst team in the regional celebrating losing 5 of their last 6 and with an
earlier loss to BYU. Every team in the region has a better record and all of
them should have hosted before Utah
BYU Women's Softball is really good this year. I hope they do well in this
tournament.Go BYU Cougars!
Ridiculous... BYU should have been selected as a host for the first round
Regionals, not utah. A clear reflection of the absurdity of the selection
process and the lack of respect that our Athletic Department has with the
decision makers in the NCAA. BYU played a very tough schedule with a better
record, their career Best record, Best ever record in the WCC, and a win against
utah and they can't be a host? Baloney.More reflections on
Holmoe in my book.
Now that's respect. The number 11 seed after losing 5 of their last 6
games. (Think what seed they were heading for; however, Washington is no
fluke!) I briefly saw the selections and remember seeing LSU, Tennessee, and I
believe 8 PAC-12 teams thinking Utah has beaten so many of them already this
season. (Utah has a winning record against top 20 teams!) Prove
them right, Utes!
Wow the utes didnt deserve to host a regional by sputtering down the stretch.
I'll be surprised if they get out of that bracket alive.
Utah will win the regional. Washington will win the super regional. The Y
might be the dark horse and upset the cart, but they don't have the
pitching depth of either of these two teams. They beat both of them this year,
but they were one-and-done games. These are my three favorite teams, with the
Y, UW and Utah, in that order.
