Why, if BYU is such an insignificant program in the eyes of ute fans, do they
spend so much time here? Let's face it BYU's Football team is
mediocre at best this year and would probably be described better as poor, maybe
just a bit better than last year. I'm as big a fan of the Cougs as anyone
out there. Even I know that they will be very lucky to get any kind of post
season bowl bid. If they have to beat the utes to get bowl eligible, well,
there's always next year. It seems to me that no matter the
accomplishments of the utes, their fans will always consider themselves second
to the Cougs, at least that's my take. It must be hard to have the Cougs
live rent free in their heads during football season, if not all year long. I
wish the utes good luck, tough break losing their senior QB last week.
It's fun to play run and gun ball. But don't forget the other end
boys. That's where you really earn the big W. As the season goes on we
will see how disciplined this group can be. Will both ends play out like they
should? Let's see how Coach Rose and his group handles these and other
aspects of the game this year.
“As for the Cougars? Pencil them in as the No. 11 seed in the South
Region, that is if they can defeat the Alabama Crimson Tide in one of the
‘First Four’ bouts.Dobbertean has BYU as one of his
final four teams in the tourney, along with Nebraska, Illinois State and
Alabama.Notably, that is if Dobbertean is proven to be the
Nostradamus of the 2018-19 college basketball season, Utah is one of the first
four teams out of the tourney, along with Louisville, Houston and St.
Johns”After missing a couple of seasons, it would be great to
see BYU back in the Big Dance.2nd to Gonzaga in the WCC would be a
Saturday's game will help for the Coug's bowl eligibility. They should
cruise to a comfortable victory. Somewhere in the 31-7 final score range would
be a nice and needed step forward. From a Ute fan-best of luck for
the remainder of the season (notwithstanding November 24th).
BYU will most likely escape UMass with a W and get a 3rd tier bowl that nobody
will watch. BYU hoops has ZERO chance going to "the dance."
