    In the past 5 years, preseason we have played:

    2007 none
    2008 ASU #17 at home lost
    Wake Forest #6 home lost
    2009 none
    2010 none
    2011 Baylor #7 home lost
    2012 none

    That makes a whopping 3 ranked teams in 5 years, and all losses. No the MC doesn't scare anyone anymore.

    You may be sick of fans not giving solutions, I am sick of fans not knowing what they are talking about and claiming to be a BBall powerhouse. So to my point, if u are happy playing 3 ranked teams in 5 years at home, then whatever. As a season ticket holder, lets drop the Crappy teams and at least schedule a couple decent teams where we don't win by 30 (and maybe the MC will be more than half full again)!

    Are u crazy? There are dozens of teams out there that would play BYU home and home.

    Rose isn't dumb. To get to the NCAA tourney you need a good RPI, or at least 20 wins. Byu has proven they can't win the WCC, so there goes that bid. So they are banking on a 24--8 type record. They have gone and been blasted by average teams in the road. Why can't we ever play a top 30 team at home? Nice try in its too tough at the MarriottCenter. That was before. Not now. Utah of all mediocre teams about beat us this year in the MC. Playing someone decent, and given our chances of winning at home, would help our RPI. I know people inside the program that want the sme thing. It's all about competing, not playing garbage programs.

    Step up BYU and schedule somebody. Preseason makes you better. BYU fanbase says we are a power - lets act like it.

    "lets drop the hyphenated teams and JC's please"

    And who would you suggest that BYU bring in instead?

    Most Top 100 RPI teams refuse to play in the Marriott Center because it's too tough of a place to win.

    It's annoying when fans whine, but offer no reasonable alternatives.

    As a season ticket holder, can we plz schedule teams worth watching? The 30 point blowouts are not worth driving to anymore....

    If we want to be a big time program, lets drop the hyphenated teams and JC's please.
