    I'm sure defense is going to be the priority from here and out. I sure would like to see BYU win their games at the Marriott Center, which hasn't been the case. Seems like some of these teams in the WCC with small venues come out here and get motivated like it's their Super Bowl, while we go to their gyms and play lackluster. That's got to stop! I have seen a lot of Nevada's games this year. I know they have a ton of talent. Even with that they play team defense like nobody else. Take a lesson from them. BYU's bench is deep, so why not go all out with defensive effort.

    A quick check of the non-conference scores shows that the lowly WWC is 9-3 against the “Conference of Champions.” Maybe the WWC should be called the conference of champions.

    “The gift of Holmoe's independence experiment continues to fail...”

    Football hasn’t proven they can beat good/finished ranked P5 opponents.....Wilson is no Savior & byu will never be able to prove themselves against legitimate 9+ consecutive P5 game schedule.....Which good team did Wilson beat? Which good P5 team will he beat next year, as we know the first one is a guaranteed L, period?

    As you imply, the trickle-effect of Indy is being stuck in the wcc for all other sports.....Terrible predicament they’re in on both fronts, period.

    Go Utes!

    It looks like BYU will need to figure out how to play defense, if they want to be better then 6th place in the WCC.

    The term "preseason" is used in the rundown for a couple of these teams.

    There is no preseason in college basketball.

    Well it looks as though the Y is right in there with Pepperdine, Portland and Santa Clara. It's going to be a loooong season!
