Another game not on TV. BOO!!!I'd rather play in the WCC and be able
to watch the games. Besides I don't think St. Mary's and Gonzaga are any worse
than SDSU and UNLV typically. The MWC is probably a little deeper overall but I
don't mind if I can watch all the games!
I'll be at the game! As of yesterday, it was not close to being sold out. No
one really talks about Creighton sports here. It's all about Husker football.
Nebraska-Omaha has a great hockey team and plays at the Qwest Center. More
people support that I feel. I'm so excited for this game! There
were 500 seats given to BYU alumni. Can't wait to sit with them all!
Good luck Cougs! May the winning ways continue to come. Congrats on the recent
wins and the fortitude displayed. Represent tonight, and those of us who can
will follow you online and dream of the day BYU-TV can carry games like this, or
This game is meaningless in the overall picture. BYU has beaten no one, as has
Creighton. Creigton's two losses are to Iowa State and Northwestern, two
nowhere teams. The four Creighton wins have been against Hail Mary Tech teams.
Creighton's wins are against such powers as Alabama State, Northern Arizona,
Louisana Lafayette, and Kennesaw State. Are you kidding me? These are
terrible teams. BYU hasn't played a much more formidable slate of teams. So
this game may give us some indication as to whether BYU has any claim at all to
national ranking status, which is totally up in the air for me at this point.
BYU has historicall been a mediocre road team versus decent programs. BYU's
main weakness will be the lack of athletic players and size, who can operate in
the open court and have the ability to guard people, particularly down low. The
jury is still out on those issues.As a diehard BYU sports enthusiast
I am obviously pulling for the Cougars tonight.
@Anonymous Infinity-I'm not sure you can really say that this game
is meaningless. Sure...if BYU wins, it won't look like much. However, BYU losing
may go a long way in defining the type of success this team may have.As far as BYU not playing anyone, I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree
(somewhat). I believe USU will be in the top 25 for much of the year. South
Florida, though not a traditional powerhouse, finished a decent 9-9 in Big East
play last year, beating Georgetown, UConn, and Pitt along the way. And St.
Mary's is coming off of a great year last year, finishing 28-6 and going to the
sweet sixteen. This year, they already beat St. John's and were 6-0 before BYU
handed them their first loss of the season (on a neutral court, BTW).I know that BYU is not exactly playing a non-conference schedule filled with
ACC and Big East teams (and who would, unless you're Gonzaga looking for street
cred.). Still, this is one of the tougher starts to a season that BYU has had,
and they're still undefeated.
BP , I agree with you. Anonymous : It would be nice if you could be
optomistic once in a while, it doesn't matter whether it is the cougars or the
jazz, you seem to be less than optimistic. Think positive , be happy and hope
for the best. In other words be optimistic.The cougar back court is pretty
solid, with Jimmer, Emry, Kyle and Abuo but the front court needs guys to step
up, Hartsock seems to be doing pretty good but Davies needs to step up and Chris
needs to stay healthy.Defense seems pretty good, Go get em cougars.
Anonymous Infinity is nothing but a ridiculous BYU hating troll pretending to be
a BYU fan.Utah State and St. Mary's are both RPI Top 50 teams.
Why could this game not be on BYUtv? Is this a contractual thing or is it that
there is no feed available from the Creighton complex?
Anonymous Infinity - What a poor job of concealing your hatred for all things
byu.I bet if I was 5 I would also find it entertaining to post
pretending to be someone else. Well done on the convincing ending
though. Not just a simple "Go Cougars" or "Go BYU" like a
byu fan would do. "As a diehard BYU sports enthusiast I am
obviously pulling for the Cougars tonight."Obviously not. Grow up bud.
annonymous infinity: No road wins? You mean, as in the two wins back to back on
SDSU's home court?Always a good idea to check facts prior to
slamming. FSU is projected to be top half of WAC. USF has been to the NCAA big
dance twice consecutively....it goes on, but let it suffice to say you are not
