    I'm in the military and have been out of state for a few years. I came home on holiday leave and took the opportunity to see this game, my first in the building since it was called the Delta Center. Impressed by how the Cougars played, but also impressed with the facility. Clean, colorful, easy to get around in. The Flash Scan ticketing over the Internet is very efficient and speedy. The statues on the south side of Stockton and Malone were nice to see. With the Jumbotron, there's hardly a bad seat in the house. Halftime trampoline show was fun. Thanks, ESA and BYU, for a good show!

    A "mild ankle sprain?" I played basketball for thirty years and had dozens and dozens of sprained ankles. A sprained ankle is no big deal, and a mild sprain is insignificant. A mild sprain is gone in two or three days, and any athlete with any grit at all can endure an ankle sprain, even a more serious one, you tape it up and play, it isn't even newsworthy.

    BYU is 9-2 in games played in the ESA. No need to fret about not playing home-and-home in the Marriott Center.

    Besides, BYU sometimes schedules games in the ESA in early December because the Marriott Center is being used for Christmas Around the World.

    Haws had a career day, but, I suspect there are more games like that in his future. He's only a sophomore.

    Let's hope Brandon recovers quickly from his high ankle sprain.

    The problem is, teams just won't come to the Marriott Center. If BYU starts making demands, they just hang up the phone. I agree that it should be more balanced - like if BYU ever schedules Arizona again, then the game there should be played in Phoenix instead of Tucson. But most teams are too scared to play on BYU's home court. I give props to Baylor and Wake Forest for having some guts in recent years. No one else does.

    Playing at EA doesn't seem to hurt BYU at all! The coach and players all seem to enjoy playing there and would probably play there more if it were allowed. It is also a good recruiting tool!

    Playing at EA is just an excuse for BYU athletic leadership not to be able to schedule home and home with teams outside this area.

    This needs to be the last game of it's kind.

    If we play on their home court, they play on ours!
