blue n gold - Redmond, WAMarch 23, 2019 3:14 p.m.UteologyCongratulations, Utah is the 4th best team in the state, the 105th team in the country, and U were once againdominated by BYU by double digits.------I
am here talking about NCAA wins and all you talk about is beating Utah.Last 5 years, Utah is the top basketball program in the State.
Congratulations Aggies on a great season! You won some clutch games in
conference and you made it to the dance. You're definitely trending upward.
UW has great defense and went through the PAC undefeated in the first half of
conference. Nothing to be ashamed of. Regardless of what others may say,
it's about matchups in college ball.
'The Utes played down to Washington's level.' ...Actually
they played down to 17 points below Washington's level.

Sad that the Aggies were "one and done." It just underscores the poor
state of basketball in Utah. At least the Aggies made it to the Big Dance even
if they stumbled. They had a good year and next year looks promising as well.
It's been hard watching the Cougars this year. If Yoeli jumps ship, BYU
will be even weaker than this year. I don't see the Utes being that much
better either. Will the Aggies be the lone Utah team in post-season play again
next year? Hope not.
Lots of mouthing off from fans of a team that didn’t even finish in the
top 100.Final NCAA NET and Kenpom Rankings#29/#38 USU#85/#88 BYU#90/#99 UVU#105/#109 Utah
Utah_State_Fan - Logan, UtahMarch 23, 2019 9:53 a.m.Looks like the
Aggies played down to Washington’s level. Happens to most teams when you
play a team that’s smaller and more sloppy. Also the Aggies
were probably preparing for North Carolina when they should have been getting
ready for the Huskies. Understandable given the fact you only have a couple of
days to practice.---------------No, the Aggies were
actually preparing for the Final Four when they should have been getting ready
for an early exit. Like they do every NCAA tournament.LOL @ BYU fans
USU AGGIE FAN - Logan, UtahMarch 23, 2019 9:56 a.m.@ UteologyAre you counting NIT wins?-------No, that's
a 2nd rate tournament.I was wrong, Utah has SEVEN NCAA tournament
wins this century when we our program has been abysmal.Utah State
has SIX in it's entire history.Next time, stop with the "We
want North Carolina" slogans. Leave that type of hype to BYU fans.
We Utes love our brothers in Logan. I feel bad that USU lost. UW is an okay
team, but Oregon could shock March Madness. Those guys are ScArY!
A good season for the Aggies and their fans. Many of the fans need to obtain a
more nearly realistic view of basketball reality or they are in danger of being
viewed by the rest of us as laughably delusional as are byu fans.
Well now we know where we are as compared to the best of the PAC 12 and where we
gotta go. I believe that Coach Smith will get us there. I can't help
thinking that playing in the NCAA tournament is a lot like love. "It is
better to have danced (played) and lost than to have never danced (played) at
all." The Aggies and Coach Smith will learn, and with the majority of our
team back next year, we will be better. Congratulations to the Washington
Huskies, hope they continue to play well. I hope there are more teams
representing Utah in the NCAA's next year.
USU has a nice new coach...if he sticks.Utah has some nice young
players...if they stick.byu has rose, haws and emery...go cougs.

When one goes against the big boys of the Pac 12, it's probably a good idea
to bring a lunch because the Pac 12ers play the en--tire game. USU spent a whole
lotta time talking about how they were the best team in the state of Utah this
year and while that is correct, a couple of caveats there. Number one--being the
best team in Utah this year is a little like being hailed as the best ski resort
in Mississippi and two---the Utes are Pac 12 baby. They will be back. Down a bit
because of youth but---we be gettin' there baby---we talkin' Pack
tuh--wellllllve brutha! You know--the place ya'lled love to be. Nice season
Aggies! Seriously tough squad!
Washington did Utah State a favor. If the Huskies can beat the Aggies by 17,
just think of what the Tar Heels would to to them!
Utteology: 1960 to 1970 Utah State Basketball went to the NCAA tournament 4
times (another one in 1971), which included 2 sweet sixteens and a final eight
(In 1970, they may have won it but their best player sprained his ankle the
night before the game and was barely able to walk on the floor, let alone play).
Whether that was conveniently left out or not, I don't know. That was
also when only 24 teams were invited to the NCAA, which you may have been
conveniently, or not, left out as well. They also went to the NIT one year,
which at the time was comparable to the NCAA. The team choose to go to the NIT
because one player was ineligible to play in the NCAA. If you want to talk
history, you can't leave out parts of it to make somebody else look better.
Nice run Aggies.
Lots of Pac 10 not 12 fans here.Let’s not forget that the pac 10
isn’t worth a thing in football. But they think it’s still 2004 in
there Conf.Washington won’t last another game. Where are
the utes? Cougars?
Pugman, you took the words right out out of my mouth. Oh, the hypocrisy from the
Great season aggies
LOL at Utah fans mocking the Aggies for failing to do what the Utes failed to do
- TWICE - beat Washington.
AZUTE1 - Mesa, AZMarch 22, 2019 8:55 p.m.The PAC-12’s UW
spanked the mwc’s usu in spectacular fashion!3-1 thus far, 2
still playing.1-1, 1 still playing.0-2 & out of The Tourney
entirely.This jives w/conference rankings—PAC-12
> wcc > mwc.———Still
doesn’t change the fact that, according to NCAA NET team rankings, the
#104 Utes were only the 4th best team in the state, behind #29 Utah
State, #85 BYU and #90 UVU,and BYU beat both the Utes and the Aggies
by 15 points.It’s hilarious how Utes fans have become Huskies
and Ducks fans, after mocking BYU fans for becoming Zags fans.The
hypocrisy on the hill is astounding.
We’ll see what happens to Washington Sunday. And, Iregon looked good over
Wisconsin. But, I think most of the high school basketball talent
knows that if you want a chance to go to the Final Four, you go to college in
the East, or in Spokane.
Let's see, BYU trips the utes by 15 points. BYU rips usu by 15 points.
WCC has a winning record against the pac, 10-7.The way I see it BYU is the
best team followed by USU in 2nd, with Utah Valley coming in a strong 3rd. WSU
would be 4th. That leaves Cyprus High 5th and the utes 6th. Sounds about
Just recounting all the comments made by byu and aggie fans about the terrible
Pac12 basketball this past season. USU got their lunch handed to them. Got a big
shoe in the mouth now. Go Pac12!
AZJazzFan - Gold Canyon, azThere is only once school in the entire West
that will go far in the tourney and it plays in the WCC. ------Oregon doesn't play in the WCC.
1-16 now since 1970Maybe next time Utah State won't overlook a
#9 seed. This century, even though Utah has been mostly abysmal, we
still have more NCAA wins (5) than BYU, Utah State, UVC, Weber State, and
Southern Utah combined (4).SAD!
Dear pacmidmajor: No spin necessary on ASU's play-in game
victory. That spin was validated by BYU's 2012 victory over Iona in a
similar play-in game. You know, the one that BYU counts on it's web page
as an NCAA Tournament win. Just thought you would like to know.
USU best team in Utah but not ready for prime time. Perhaps PAC 12 isn’t
as overrated in basketball as it was in football. Aggies had a spectacular
season. Washington may really be good if they beat North Carolina. My money
would be on the Tar Heels but Washington’s zone is good.
Dissappointing loss for USU. Overall they had a good season, exceeded
expectations and good to see a team represent the state. No reason for others
to gloat over Pac XII winning some games. With all the money, resources, better
talent, etc that the Pac XII has over the smaller conferences, it does not make
up for how underwhelming they have been all season. There is only once school in
the entire West that will go far in the tourney and it plays in the WCC. With most players returning USU will hopefully and finally win at least one
Oh, and I forgot.... the pac 10.2 is still the worst conference in college
Sorry Aggies, if you weren’t playing a PAC 12 team, I would’ve been
rooting for you. Good luck next year!
Remember when Ute fans mocked everyone about supporting the Zags and other teams
within conferences..........Pot....meet kettle
A lot of dubious comments from fans of the 5th best team in the state of Utah
this year .... You may want to tone it down a bit as ASU got embarrassed today
as will Washington on Sunday ... you also need to realize that asu’s win
was a play in game to even get into the field of 64 so go ahead and spin that
how you want ....
The PAC-12’s UW spanked the mwc’s usu in spectacular fashion!3-1 thus far, 2 still playing.1-1, 1 still playing.0-2 &
out of The Tourney entirely.This jives w/conference
rankings—PAC-12 > wcc > mwc.Go PAC-12!Go Utes!
Great run Aggies!! I feel bad that you lost to UW today. Things
got interesting when you pulled to within one. Your program is definitely
trending upward at a rapid pace. Good luck next year!!
Utah State finding out today it's not easy playing in the Pac 12.
Washington got the best draw of any team. An opponent who didn't beat
anyone good and the only other decent team in their conference faltered down the
stretch. Looking forward to Gonzaga in the Final Four!
I would rather not go to the tournament if we are going to get destroyed every
time. Just stay home.
MW finishes 0-2 in big dance. Big West is 1-0 (UC Irvine won). Pac12 is
now 3-1.Can we stop with the MW is best in west talk?
PAC-12 dominates another foe, now 3-1 in the NCAA tourney!
