    Sometimes being a Cougar fan gets embarrassing. If they win tonight their will be an article in the paper about them being a Sweet Sixteen team. Then they will lose to San Diego on the road because they believe it.

    Nate is an extremely important cog on this team. But the teams needs more offensive production from him. That part of his game has slipped since he was a freshman. He has a decent jump shot and can even shoot the three, but he is not looking for that shot anymore. He passes up open 15 footers all the time. We don't need him camping on the perimeter, but he could really extend a defense if he popped a 3 once in awhile. It would serve BYU well if Rose and Pope really worked to make Nate a more aggressive scorer.

    I sorta think Coach Pope is well qualified to make any needed adjustments to Nate's game. p.s. Nate is having a huge season for a 6'11" skinny kid!

    Could someone teach Austin how to play tall? He has a tendency to bend at the waist so he plays about as big as a point guard. With all his hustle, a few more inches of court presence would be a huge help.

    The Selection Committee has always looked favorably on teams that are playing well at the end of the season.

    It's great to see BYU coming together as a team late in the season.

    After some disappointments early in the season and early in conference play, the Cougars have won 6 of their last 7, and have a chance to finish winning 8 of their last 9 entering the WCC tournament.
