    Live Hard is a Wyoming fan without a winning team to cheer for. Enough said.

    @ Live Hard
    South Florida is in the Big East and is the team BYU beat. North Florida is the team WYO got shelled by last week. Perhaps the smack should stop from your end until WYO has a winning season.

    St Mary's is the real deal and will probably humble the cougs tonight.

    Having seen every game this year I was stunned at how poorly we played. We have suffered from increasingly longer cold starts game after game. This time we never seemed to get it going.

    This was not a road game as it was a tournament game played at a neutral site. It was, however, our first game away from home. I certainly hope it isn't indicative of our non-home game performances.

    If we can't turn the shooting slump around in a 24 hour window we will lose to St. Mary's.

    Let's be honest, the Utes are better than the Cougars at every sport, even basketball. Those zoobs can't get ANYTHING right.

    Go Utes!

    don't pay attention to Live Hard. He's just an all-consumed, intolerant, obsessed BYU-hater. I don't think he's a Yewt, though.

    Don't count out Utah this year. They are looking a lot better than expected. They gave USU a tough game at the Spectrum. They will not be nearly as bad as many BYU fans seem to think.

    Again, BYU finds a way to wYn, and competes. I find it odd BYUs called arrogant for having the stones to go their own way and earn bigger $$ than many BcS teams. I guess ute "fans" have to find one more thing to hate since they don't follow their own teams. Sub .500 again this year?

    Live Hard...your cowgirls are showing up again this year. Nice job.

    Why the drama with Florida teams? Way to never give up, shows a lot of heart and confidence. Do make free throws next time please, ask USU, they will be upset at missing that win in the MC because of their poor shooting. You want a season with no regrets!

    @Cali Coug

    No live hard cannot do better, that is as good as it gets from him. He is a "ute fan" which really means BYU hater. I'm willing to bet he doesn't attend one single game at the huntsman center this year. The ute "fans" are avoiding that place in droves. But on the flip side he will watch every single BYU game ths year just hoping to see them lose. Of course they will lose (infrequently) so his joy will be outweighed by his frustration by a factor of 29-6. LOL

    I listened to the game on the radio and I'll be honest, I am shocked BYU was able to come away with the victory. That says a lot about this team and their determination.

    However, as stated above, a win is a win and another win today at LES North.

    Go Cougars!

    BYU isn't "arrogant"???? Talk about calling the kettle black!!!

    When your good, your can call it what you want, but calling the "Y" arrogant is a real stretch. You know and I know it, so please make a better post next time. We expect more from you, we (Cougar Fans) know you can do better...don't let us down.

    It was a win, nice dish from Jimmer and Hartsock Jumper. Better start shooting some 100 times at the line before facing St. Mary. Go Cougars!

    Winning on the road is always tough...especially against unknown opponents. Adding it is a holiday weekend...tough win...excellent win. This team is going to develop, and it takes time. New players, new mix of personalities. They are finding themselves and could have just as easily lost.

    BUT--alas, they did not lose...they won. At the end of the is another W in the win column...All that matters! Go Cougs!

    On the bright side, BYU forced 20 turnovers, played great defense and Fredette had an all-around great performance. USF is a very long team, beat us on the boards, and contested every shot, but we made up for it with steals.

    BYU has yet to show us a good shooting performance. Tonight was especially bad. We missed a ton of layups and a decent 5th grade team could shoot better from the free-throw line. Coach Rose says he's not worried about the poor shooting, but I am. St Mary's is a really good shooting team. Let's hope we warm up a little and they cool off. Otherwise, it will be a long night.

    A Win is a Win, A sub .500 season is a sub .500 season.

    I'll take my wYn, U can enjoy your losses.

    That was a very poorly played game. St Marys will blow BYU out if BYU plays anything like they did

    Poor shooting all around. Lucky to escape with a win.

    50% from the line?? That will not cut any ice. Better each shoot 100 free throws immediately following the game before you hit the sack tonight.

    Now you see, however, why Fredette is first team all-american. The triple team couldn't even stop him in the end. Way to go Hartsock - knocking down that shot.

    Congrats on the win, loads more Y fans in a strangely small place.

    That's a Tourney type win, lots of FT misses, but others step up behind Jimmer's leadership and 30+ points.

    GO Y!!!
