    So BYU is not selected. “Body of work” or in baseball terms, bad schedule cost BYU a lesson. Padding the “Ws” will get you nowhere. “Y” didn’t deserve consideration at all.

    As predicted again. BYU’s “body of work” playing a very weak schedule, building the “w”s means nothing. Lost in loser bracket to Gonzaga 1-3.

    Not rooting against the “Y” ever but the ignorance of some people just says it all.

    No birth, no auto birth, no nothing as you can’t play a weak schedule a pose your way to saying “body of work”! That’s not even baseball.

    As predicted. 1-4 against 4th seed and will now play Gonzaga where they lost 2 of 3 in Provo and Zags best guy not on the mound. Body of work as not

    Just how out of touch are BYU fans and Utah fans? Clueless when it comes to real baseball. When my son pitch for the “Y” and we made 2 regional appearances 2001, 2002, it wasn’t even close with real baseball teams as we played decent schedules. All you guys care about is who beat one another out of the Cougs and Utes. That’s not baseball. Those other regional teams will pitch their #4 guy if BYU makes it to it. In the WCC, BYU will have to face #1s. They won’t make it through the tourney. Rookies all

    Elkhorn:

    So in other words, what you're saying is -- in your typical, obfuscative, "beat-around-the-bush" fashion -- is that you agree with me that your baseball program is pathetic. After all, what kind of program would play in a super weak league, but win only ONE league title in 9 years? And what kind of program who --- in their best season in 9 years -- would go only .500 against a sub-.500 team like you guys did vs. Utah?

    There can be only one logical explanation: a truly pathetic one.

    Case closed.

    IF BYU were such a dominant program, why is it they’re not routinely making Super Regional/CWS appearances?

    BYU has always dominated U and that’s all that really matters now isn’t it?

    wcc was typically weak-sauce as evidenced by byu-p’s bottom-feeding SOS [#143].

    IF they reach the postseason, expect yet another Stanford Regional-like result, as they’re not adequately prepared by the wcc for real competition.....Just ask their softball team how their Regional turned-out.

    weak coast conference.

    Go Utes!

    re: "BYU is so Much Better than Utah at Baseball. Its unreal that you would even comment on this post at all when one team is clearly more dominant than the other."

    "Sounds made up"

    All-time BYU-Utah Record
    BYU 244-116-2

    BYU has won 68% of the games in the series.

    Not only has BYU dominated Utah in baseball, it's not even close.

    I never called our baseball team "dominant". You just made that up. Straw man much? How frantic and emotional of you.

    And why would I be reading LA websites? Did you think those website provide much coverage of any Pac-12 team outside of California?

    Sounds made up:

    "BYU is so Much Better than Utah at Baseball. Its unreal that you would even comment on this post at all when one team is clearly more dominant than the other."

    So dominant that you'd gone 1-1 against the team you allege you're "dominating"?

    So dominant that despite playing in the weak WCC for the past 9 seasons, you'd won only ONE outright baseball title? At least Utah won an outright title in a "major" league, and didn't take 9-yrs to do it in.

    So if you STILL believe that you're the "dominant" team here, then doesn't that really just reaffirm my 10:21 post from this morning that you're "pathetic"?

    Power 5 conference? This isn’t football. The cougs have not played anyone. San Diego and San Diego St beat BYU. Whatever happened to playing Cal St Fullerton in the West or SEC teams where most of your real teams are. Back in the day, Vance had us playing Alabama, Oklahoma St. , ASU and USC. WCC, are you kidding me. Try Oregon St not Oregon Ducks. BYU has been beating Washington Huskies for years. Real pitching beats good hitting every time. Too many non baseball guys commenting. BYU baseball should take a lesson from BYU Softball as they had a real schedule

    "navy private"??? There are no "Privates" in the Navy. I always enjoy the "uneducated" chitter chatter regarding matters you all know nothing about, thereby proving mendenmidmajor's assessment of his former fanbase as 100% spot-on accurate.

    I like the WCC's approach to the conference tournament and the fact that not everyone gets in. In my opinion that is a better way of awarding the conference auto-bid because it at least somewhat rewards the season long body of work. I don't mind the Pac-12's option either of just not having a conference tourney and giving the bid to the regular season champ. Wouldn't mind basketball going in a similar direction but we all know that will never happen, money talks with those conference tourneys. Anyway, good luck to the Cougs in their quest for a NCAA bid while my Utes unfortunately sit on the sidelines this year.

    Wow! That was their FIRST??? Despite playing 9 full years in the weak WCC??? Ouch! Ya gotta admit. That's pretty pathetic. It took Utah less time to win a "major" league than it took the "Band of Small-ballers" to win one in the "minors".
