    So give us some examples. Some real ones.

    Any victory for the Cougars is a good one, regardless who the victim may be. I thought some of officiating was awful, allowing a mugging down deep by Utah and very few calls. If the officials would have cleaned up the game by calling early fouls, the blowout would have been epic believe me. There was a lot of homer no calls. I'm seeing a lot of brutal play in collegiate games I have viewed so far this season where a physical contact is ignored in many cases. This trend seems to be growing at all levels of play.

    Continued success to the Cougars. And I don't wish any ill will toward the Utes. They just have no talent at this level of play this year. It has to be discouraging for the coaches.

    This team is in the toilet and you are just trying to stir the pot by calling out Y fans as classless, typical.

    Cheering for BYU in the Huntsman is only disgusting if you're a Utah fan.

    Congrats on the win Cougars.

    However, the behavior displayed by many of the Y fans in attendance was nothing short of disgusting.

    I know a lot of BYU fans had to have been embarrassed by such awful representation.

    No matter any way you analyze the feels great to beat the Utes by 20 in the Huntsman Center. Good job Cougs. The Utes had nothing to lose and no pressure and BYU had all the pressure on them and were expected to win by 30 plus points. A 19 point victory today and 25 point victory last year at the Huntsman Center does not happen very often. I don't remember it ever happening in BYU's long history. I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

    Credit the Utes and Coach K for dictating the pace of play at the outset, but this game was never in doubt.

    Also, credit the Utes for scoring 42 points. I did not think they'd make that many buckets after dismal shooting in the first half.

    This game did reveal some important BYU weaknesses. It identified how to frustrate Hartsock at the outset. Credit Farr for some tough defense.

    But Utah was badly overmatched and may not win another game this season. . . but that's not news, is it?

    What was a bit silly was the television commentary by Reggie Theus who did not appear to have a handle on much of anything in his comments, beyond restating the obvious.

    Next week's game against Baylor should be interesting with Carlino becoming eligible. Cusick surprised me with his solid shooting. Winder played worse than I expected and hoped.

    The BYU defense, coupled with Utah's one-dimensional offense, really hampered Utah from doing much offensively during the first half. Frankly, I think Utah would have had trouble against Lone Peak High School today.
