    "Don't think the Coogs would want a rematch at this point"

    You're hilarious, but don't quit your day job. BYU ran Utah off a neutral court. BYU isn't very good, but they're better than Utah - right now. Saint Marys is better than Utah, so give it up.

    Idaho forever - Must be stressful to be a fan of Ute basketball.

    Desperately trying to pretend that you’re superior to a team that has owned U for more than decade.

    Must be stressful to be a fan of Coog basketball. Three more losses coming......2 from Gonzaga and a home loss to San Francisco. A basketball team is comprised of 5......and there are only 2 (most of the time 1) that I can see. The Utah freshmen are coming around. Don't think the Coogs would want a rematch at this point.........

    Recent history:

    BYU, Consensus National Player of the Year, 1 missed free throw in regulation shy of advancing to the Elite Eight, and two NIT Final Fours.

    Utah, utterly destroyed in their last appearance in the NCAA and first NIT wins this century.

    Thanks for the history lesson

    During recent history:

    NCAA Tournaments
    BYU 8 > Utah 3

    13 of the last 17, most by double digits, including three 20-point blow outs

    Utah hasn’t beaten BYU by 20+ points...

    this century

    Rose had to play defense to win. Sadly, he won't the next 10 games. My My, how far BYU bball has fallen.

    Beating Utah?

    BYU needs to beat Gonzaga.

    BYU needs to win the WCC Championship.

    BYU needs to win a first round NCAA Tournament Game.

    This could be one of the worst Utah teams of the Coach K era.

    They achieved their 10th victory against Stanford.

    I had Utah figured for a 10 win season.

    Can Utah win 15 games this year?

    We shall see.

    “This too shall pass”

    Don’t count on it.

    Except for the brief flash of success with Poeltl, the Utes have been “rebuilding since Majerus left.

    ---------

    Brief success?

    Utah won at WCC #2 St Mary's last season to NIT runner up. BYU was one and done at P12 #9 Stanford. Utah is a top 5 P12 program.

    Since Majerus left:

    Utah:
    4 top 25
    7 NCAA berths
    5-7 in R64
    2 Sweet 16

    BYU:
    3 top 25
    8 NCAA berths
    3-8 in R64
    1 Sweet 16
    1-1 in play-in games

    Congratulations on ONE more NCAA playin berth as a one-and-done team.

    Yeoli,
    Not even a close comparison. Utah is easy to beat and not even in the same category quality wise with St. Mary's.
    Playing the utes lowers BYU'S sos. I wish we could drop the mid major utah from our schedule permanently.

    -----

    You puff your chest now but when Utah paid $80K to drop BYU, you went crying to the State legislature.

    SAD!

    Most Utah fans agree, we should drop BYU from our football and basketball schedules.

    Dropping Utah from your schedule!

    I would be careful what you ask for. When Coach K dropped 1 game between the schools in created a big shock wave in this state. Remember when Chris Hill suggested that most Utes don’t like playing the Y?

    This is one Ute that would love dropping both football and basketball for good.

    Keep asking. We will be glad to play better teams in both sports.

    How about 13 of the last 17?

    Most by double digits.

    It gets old beating them all of the time, most by double digits. 13 of the past 17 IS owning them.

    “That's all BYU fans can celebrate now after all it is 8 and counting.“

    Nope!

    It’s 13 of the last 17 and counting, most by double digits.

    It’s basketball season and this is a basketball article.

    Even though it hurts, try staying on topic.

    This team really rallied at the end of the first half with their leader on the bench- Ball Haws. They played as a team during that stretch and surged ahead. And stayed ahead despite a rally by St. Mary's. This team will be much better with Hardnett. Not sure what is going on there. I really like the way Cannon is playing. He is the one guard out there that can play defense and he did a great job on St. Mary's star. The other guards were taken to the rack multiple times. Worthington could not contain his man, and his man scored like 10 of their first few points. Thank heavens Rose recognized this and put Baxter in. Baxter scored 10 points on very few shots. While others may have scored more on many many more shots, Baxter made a huge difference.
