    First of all, Go Ute Women, bring home the Trophy!
    I personally love anything Utes. I'll be watching today.

    Chris is fine, at least he don't pretend to represent anything but himself. What gets me are the haters that pretend to represent the student athletes, the parents, the BYU fan base or the Utah fan base. You guys don't represent anything but hate and jealousy. This is mostly in reference to the comments following the latest articles on the rugby team and the swim coach.

    Go Utes!

    I appreciate the props.

    I have known Chelsea and followed her play since grade school. I even got the chance to help coach her as she played against the boys. You could tell then she was special and going to be successful at whatever she wanted. She comes from a great family.

    IRS Agent, for once I find a comment from you refreshing, truthful and unbiased.

    PS Chelsea's a great ambassador for the U and just a great person. Glad you have been fortunate enough to associate with her!

    Chris B, nobody asked you to be excited for, or even supportive of women's basketball, but that doesn't require tearing them down for doing their best to represent the University in a MUCH better fashion than yourself.

    Go Utes!

    @ Chris B,

    Unfortunately, you don't actually tell things how they are, you tell them how you wish they were. While I agree the world has become way too PC, that is not the issue here. It is people's belief that they are more important than everyone else. That their opinion is more valid than someone else's, just because they say so. It is the disillusionment that they somehow have some influence or deserve credit for something they played no part in, by making comments like "I love my BCS/PAC12 membership" - as if they somehow had anything to do with those decisions, or somehow personally benefit from the decision. I am sure there are plenty of Ute fans that would agree. Time to take a step back into reality.

    Not hatin' just stating the facts.

    @ Chris B,

    I guess you just can't get excited for the U Men's programs either. Because to use your logic, the football team is bad, and the basketball team is bad, and two bads don't make a good thing. I now understand all the comments on the BYU article message boards. It is all starting to make sense now.

    Congrats Lady Utes. Go Chelsea Bridgewater. Make us proud.

    Utah95 and Reno,

    I'm sorry if the truth hurts you. I'm not going to apologize for telling how I feel, just as everyone else does on these boards. We live in a world where PC has taught us to pat everyone on the back every time they tie their shoes.

    I tell things how they are. And will continue to do so.

    Chris B,
    Wow! I am a long time BYU fan and Utah supporter when they are not playing each other! I say congrats to the Lady Utes! Good luck in the WNIT championship game!!! The team is playing for a post season trophy and all you can do is rag on their sport! Shame on you!!!

    Hey! This game will be played right here in Philadelphia! That's a short 15 min subway ride from my place. I can easily go to the game!

    Go Utes!

    Chris B,

    You sure are a piece of work...

    You are not alone in preferring men's to women's basketball, but it costs you nothing to be supportive of the Lady Utes in your comments. Why not congratulate them, and wish them luck in the championship game?

    Go Utes!

    I just can't get excited for this. I'm sorry, just being honest here. Women's ball is bad. The NIT is bad. Two bads do not make a good thing. Its a double dose of bad.

    I hope the Utes win for their sake, but from a fan's perspective, I really dont care at all.

    Just the truth

    Now there's an achievement we can all be proud of! Not sure very many people thought they would go this far but there they are playing for the championship of the WNIT! From a diehard Cougar fan, Go Lady Utes! Hope you bring the hardware home to Utah!

    Awesome! Nice job ladies.

    Might as well win the next one too.

    Who am I sir, I suppose it's a little late to tell you, but all the other games were webcasted by the respective schools' websites for free. K State was a team that was playing very well in the WNIT, winning all their games up to tonight fairly handily without leaving home. This is an awesome opportunity for the ladies, it'd be great if they take advantage of it Saturday.

    I know it's not the men's team and not the NCAA tourney, but what an accomplishment by the Lady Utes especially given all of the road games they have played and two overtime games as well.

    Good Luck on Saturday, ladies. GO UTES!!

    There is still one basketball team from the state of Utah playing in April! Show the NIT that you can win it despite them having you play 5 of 6 games on your opponents home court. Good Luck on Saturday. We'll be watching - at last we can!

    Congrats to the Lady Utes. Let's win this next one and go out on a high note. Heaven knows we all could use a high note.
