    Since I am pretty sure there was more than only 2 schools competing getting second place is pretty good! Do you want to stone the Red Rocks because they finished 5th out of six teams? Congrats to all the athletes that train so hard and do amazing things from all the college's in Utah!

    What! BYU is really going downhill. Good thing they have their 31 ACT average to hang a hat on--because athletics (and apparently dance) have seen much better years.

    Update - I called out Des News for printing this story about the 2nd place Cougars and omitting the fact that Weber State won the national title. Des News did print the press release from WSU's Athletics Department, so they did print something about it. Thanks!

    Hey Des News, guess who placed first and won the national championship? Weber State! Not a word about that though. Also WSU's mascot, Waldo, won best mascot.

    Since you brought it up, "old cougar", my favorite team is the Cougarettes, but all it takes on a comments page is to write something that doesn't reward mediocrity, and Cougar "fans" go bananas. Not many years ago, the team won 1st place in both competitions. Lately, they have won first in only one competition. This year, they got only second.

    Second place in a National "anything" is impressive (unless only two teams are competing).

    One of the previous comments is totally biased (if not downright pathetic).

    Questions -- where did the commentor's favorite team place? Or did they even have an entry?

    Congratulations, Cougarettes !!!

    Gotta admit it, they sure can move.

    Perhaps we should give billions of dollars to Syria and Russia for a treaty to not gas their people.

    If they cross the red line, we'll cut off a couple thousand and some other benefits.

    Time to get firm!

    Normally, 2nd isn't bad but for this team to get only one 2nd in two completions, it is, unfortunately, consistent with many other programs that are settling for mediocre this year.
