    @Lifelong Ute

    Keep beating your chest and displaying your car window sticker then if it makes you feel any better after going "one and done" in the NIT against a little ole school in a little ole conference in their little ole high school gym.

    But one thing is for sure, bragging about eventually getting "to sweet 16's and beyond" is one thing, staying home and watching the NCAA Tournament from the comfort of your couch while your team cleans their dorm rooms is quite another.

    And Good luck with that big NCAA promise. I'm not necessarily a BYU fan, but with the future talent they have coming, it wouldn't surprise me if the Utes never win another basketball game against the Cougars for the next 8 years. And, of course, I smile at how the Utes canceled the games against the Weber State Wildcats.

    Call us the next time the Utes when their next NCAA tourney game; until then, you're nothing but a washed up has been that hasn't been relevant in the tourney almost a decade.

    btw, remind us the last time the Utah men won a national championship without the help of the Utah women...

    hint: it's only happened once in Utah's entire history and in a sport in which only 4 FBS schools participate.

    @Nevada 68 teams make the dance. Not exactly a huge achievement in and of itself. How about you come back when byu gets their first final four ever and then we'll talk.

    68 out of about 350 NCAA Division I teams make the Dance. Um, no. Not easy.

    Try again.

    Sing a song of six pence,
    A pocket full of rye,
    4 and 20 blackbirds (crow),
    Baked in a pie,

    The U trolls are eating,
    Lots of pie today,
    But they keep posting,
    Silly things they say.

    I don't post of Ute articles. I have better things to do with my time. And besides, I follow the Cougars. If Winder and Carlino play to their potential, the Cougs have a good shot at winning. Stop Oregon's 3-pointers and make your free throws Cougs!!!

    Ps. I give permission to Cougars fans to use the poem whenever appropriate.

    Go Cougars

    Lifelong Ute,
    Remind us all of the chest thumping you and the rest of Ute nation are doing today after your game against a team BYU swept during the season!!! The Utes lost by 12 after leading most of the game!!! BYU is in the Big Dance and the U will be watching from the comfort of your own home because you are done!!!

    Go Cougs beat the Ducks!!! Rise Up!!!

    @Weber State, you don't see WSU or BYU fans beating their chests because there isn't much to beat their chests about. BYU and WSU would both say "how high" if one of the power conferences called and told them to jump. As far as making the dance and Utah not - Utah fans have admitted we've had a very bad program for a number of years. But we're turning things around, there is no question about that.

    And when we get back to the dance, we wont be beating our chests about just making the dance. We'll be beating our chests when we get to sweet 16's and beyond. 68 teams make the dance. Is it easy - no, and my Utes haven't been in a number of years. But bragging about something 67 other teams also did that year?

    Good luck to the Ducks and the Arizona Wildcats.

    Man Michael Lloyd Jr. was awesome in our win vs. Florida a few years back. He's really the difference maker in that game.

    I don't see any arrogant chest-thumping by BYU Cougar or Weber State Wildcat fans about how superior their team is because of perceived "prestigious" conference affiliation or silly stickers that can be placed in a car window.

    BYU may indeed lose this came and my Weber State Wildcats may likely lose their game as well, but there is always a chance. Win or lose, college basketball is an exciting game, fun to watch, and is always settled on the court regardless of obnoxious fans.

    In the spirit of obnoxiousness, go Weber State Wildcats and wipe the floor with those bawdy Arizona Wildcats!

    Good luck to BYU too.

    Contemplated picking BYU, but the thought of Carlino directing things scared me away from it.

    The diference between the 7, 8, 9, and 10 seeds is minimal so BYU has a good chance to beat oregon if they play like they are capable.

    And here's hoping that BYU is able to come together and pull out the win. Good luck Cougars, I don't cheer for a conference, only teams!
