    I agree Utah will be improved but by how much is in doubt. You described BYU exactly in your list. Utah, not so much. IF their only desire is to play high school teams then I think they will be in for a huge shock when the pac season starts.

    Utah will be improved over last year, and basketball is a sport where on any given day the underdog can rise up with great energy & a great game plan and beat the more talented teams. Desire is such an important part of BB, desire, energy, anticipation, faith & trust in team mates...BYU could be great this year, or not, depending on these factors.

    Andy is a smart guy when it comes to basketball talent.
    Any mention of the mighty utes? I guess we need to look at the other end of the list to find them.

    “You don’t want to over-schedule, but you don’t want to under-schedule, either, because that leaves your team a little bit short." Great comment from a real smart coach. H gets it. The u coaching staff could learn a lesson here as they will come up short when they finally play good teams. Once again the utes will come up short.

    This is a big test though in Provo I think BYU will be alright. Glad ISU beat Michigan and upped the ante though.

    "Sounds to me like a certain sports network really wants people to tune into this game."

    Sounds like a certain poster is green with envy.

    "...when the Utes beat them at the HC."

    Good one. Gave me my morning laugh. BYU has far too many weapons to be beaten by Loveridge and whatever other four guys Coach Crisco puts out there.

    Cougs can score when they are hot for sure. We'll see if they can get past the cyclones. I hope they do because it will mean that much more when the Utes beat them at the HC.

    @worf... The wcc had the number 1 team in the country for most of the year last year, and I suspect they will have 2 teams in the top 25 this year... Not bad for a conference of a bunch of small church schools.... Who, btw, had the best preseason record YTD when compared to any other conference...

    Are you proud of BYU's WCC membership?

    I am!
