    As a BYU Alum I wish the Cougars good luck today. But I admit I almost laughed out loud when I read that they "endured a 150-mile bus ride". I do radio play-by-play for Idaho State of the Big Sky Conference and am sometimes amazed at the mindset of covering so-called major college sports teams. Several weeks ago ISU finished its regular-season with a Tuesday night game at Eastern Washington. We got up at 5:00 the next morning to head to the Spokane airport for our flight to Salt Lake City where we boarded our team bus and rode up to Pocatello (206 miles). We arrived home about 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday only to learn that we would have to get back on the bus the next afternoon at 4:30 and ride ALL THE WAY back to Eastern Washington (562 miles)for a first-round game in the conference tournament. After playing the game we had to bus back to Pocatello (another 562 miles). I'm sorry BYU had to take a flight, then "endure" a 150 mile bus ride...poor boys.

    Cinderella teams come out of nowhere... and there's nowhere more nowhere-ish that Provo! I'm backing this team 'til the end!

    Go Cougars!

    @MiP, As Duh said, it will be a tall order for the Cougs tonight so you probably should not fake illness or you'll be doubly sick after the game. But then again, if BYU pulls out another miracle, well then, you'll just be as proud and happy for them wouldn't you? I hope they'll give it their best effort win or loose.

    Go Cougs!

    (cough, cough). I think I feel a cold coming on. Maybe call in sick to work tomorrow?

    Good luck, Cougars.

    I love my cougars but good luck. This will be a tall order for them and with their history with the lower seeds? Hope they at least play well.
