@matman/herbertI agree. I don't think it was malicious - it was
just exciting for the fans to see them perform so well. And if you argue that
chanting "air ball" is beyond the norm then perhaps you haven't
seen any other college basketball games around the county. You can
feel bad for some of these small gyms filled with BYU fans, though technically
it's good for the home program. Someone has to buy the tickets.
@HerbertThat is sports, I'm glad they chanted 'BYU'
what are they suppose to chant? It's not a church meeting for crying out
CO Ute"Gushing about the level of play from the posters is
typical."Utah fan whining about BYU fans gushing about a
34-point win,just before Utah extended their losing streak to 4 with
a 17-point loss.Classic.
CO UteI'd rather gush about a blowout win,than moan
about being 0 for 2018.
Happy Birthday (yesterday) Yoeli! Nice dominating win by our Cougars, which is
how it should be against a team like that with the talent we have.
I will gladly gush about this game. If you saw the game CO-Ute you would too if
being objective. Keep it up Cougars. Next year will be good but it starts with
each remaining game from now on. BTW, the best team in the State of Utah.
Childs has a real chance to make and stay in the NBA. This guy is legit.
Happy Birthday Yoele Child. Would of been better if we had played agasint SMC
instead. Keep it up Cougars.
Umm ... Santa Clara is ranked about #300 nationally. This is a game BYU should
win easily and they did. Gushing about the level of play from the posters is
Biggest negative was the visiting fans chanting "BYU, BYU" in that very
small gym with a 30 point lead. Very irritating to the home team and sounded
too much "in your face".Reminiscent of BYU student section
shouting "air ball, air ball".I know the effect because I
have been in that gym and witnessed the response of others in similar
conditions.No need to "rub it in". Unfortunately, such
actions reflect on sportsmanship. Yes, I am a BYU fan. We can do better.😁
The men's game was on BYU TV. Why couldn't you get it?This is the beauty of BYU sports these days - it is rare that you cannot watch
major sports on TV. Even minor sports and Women's sports get great TV
This was the most unselfish, team oriented game I have seen BYU play in years
(maybe ever!). In a team setting, even Haws came through. In fact, I am not
going to be able to criticize Haws if he continues to play like he did last
night. It was refreshing to see a team care more about helping the team, and
not padding their own stat sheet. Seljius scored, Worthington scored, even some
reserves scored. And the defense was equally played as a team. Any time you
can dominate another team on their own floor, it is great.Incidentally, did anyone notice the balcony show during every BYU foul shot?
It was over the top.
As great a game as I've seen them played both offensively and defensively.
Hope they can keep that up. They would've been undefeated in conference
play at this point if they had played like that every game, especially against
Pacific. Go Cougars!!!
Bad day for Santa Clara. Men's team and Women's team whacking them on
the same day. Couldn't get the men's game - watched the ladies. Very
fun - they have some shooters. Very different game, of course, but those girls
can shoot! And they're much cuter than the guys!
