Glad the Cougars got in, but once again they get a lower seed than they probably
should have. With an RPI in the mid 40s, they really should have gotten a 12
seed at worst. So they got knocked down 2-3 seeds. Typical.And for
Iona, Dayton is rather close to home. Yeah, scream "conspiracy
theorist" all you want, but I'm convinced: the selection committee loves
setting BYU up to fail.Prove 'em wrong Cougars. Pound these Gaels.
With the youth on this team, it's great to see them get this oppertunity. Good
luck in representing our great state.
Iona its church ball but BYU should get used to it!!
Congratulations and good luck!
This seed looks about right. The good: really good odds of getting a
post-season win. The bad: does play-in even count as a win?
Best matchup BYU could have possibly gotten! Iona is #1 in points scored and
assists, but BYU is just a few behind them. What a great matchup!
a 1 and done in a play in game..another embaressing loss
BYU has a great, great draw. Iona just lost their last game, and BYU matches up
well against Marquette (the only 3 seed I'd want to face).
Better than a sharp stick in the eye, I suppose.
well announcers on espn saying saying BYU doesent belong haha it will be
BYU in the bottom 4 how funny is that??
Good luck BYU. I'm a fan, but... I wish you all luck and please bring your A
game (no threes).
First, congrats to the Cougars for a chance top play themselves into the
tournament. That makes 3 teams from the WCC to make it. Funny thing is, 4 teams
from the MWC made the tourney.
The "Y" getting into this tourney shows what money, power and politics
can do for those that are not qualified just like our national republican
campign we are presently experiencing can do with help. It's wrong.
Congrats Cougars on another well-deserved honor!Sixth straight year
that BYU will be dancing.
And all this in a rebuilding year and after Jimmer. Nice! Go Cougars!!
Phew. At least they got in and actually have a chance of winning ONE game. After
the way the guards have been shooting, this is as good as BYU could have gotten.
And even the most loyal true blues have got to be taking a sigh of relief and
know that it will be one and done and glad for it.
Way to represent the state of Utah. Go Cougars!
BYU is not representing the State of Utah, they are representing the school.
Most of the players are not from the state. Get over it.
Wow, the trolls are out in full force. Guess y'all need something to do since
your teams are DONE. Have a happy off-season and better luck next year!
Duckhunted:You wanna talk about ute basketball now??
"BYU doesent belong haha it will be embaresing!!!"two words

duckhunter - what's embarrassing is to spell embarrassing "embaressing".
You should ask the U for a refund on your tuition.
@ LonestarRunner & CougieFaninTXThis is a sports thread not a
grammar class. Correcting someone's grammar only points out that you have no
argument. LonestarRunner,VCU had a great run last year,
but BYU is not VCU! The odds of BYU making a run like VCU did last year is slim
to none. The cougies are more likely to forfeit a game than make a Final Four
PAC12 hates UGet over your petty jealousy.BYU 2012 may
not be VCU 2011, but BYU 2012 is still light years ahead of Utah 2006, Utah
2007, Utah 2009, Utah 2010, Utah 2011 AND Utah 2012...and, at the
very least, tied with Utah 2008.BYU is dancing!Where
will U be?btw, it embarrassing to call something embarrassing if you
can't even spell the word; that's just plain embarrassing.
The most salient point for U, Sandy, is BYU 2012 has an infinitely better chance
of winning the National Championship...than U.
And Congrats to Colorado for winning the Pac-12 in their first year! CO and Cal
will bring their rich respective hoops histories to March Madness. I see the
PAC-12 as a real up a coming conference down the road ... somewhere. They got
really close to maybe landing 3 teams in the Tourney.
Let me translate all the BYU hating trolls into one simple sentence. "We're jealous of BYU." Now, whenever someone rips on the
Cougars, you know exactly what they're saying.
PAC 12 loves UYou said - "Correcting someone's grammar only
points out that you have no argument."Care if I make an
argument?BYU = 20+ wins Number of WCC teams in the tourney,
including BYU? 3Utah = tough season considering how much Larry
Krystowiak had to clean up Jim Boylen's messNumber of PAC 12 teams in the
tourney? 2 @SammFanYou said - "I see the
PAC-12 as a real up a coming conference down the road ... somewhere. They got
really close to maybe landing 3 teams in the Tourney."Was this
comment intended to be serious, because I found it quite hilarious.
@CougFaninTexasPlease read the screen names before you post.As far as the tourney, love it, they're in. When you're in you have a
chance. When you only win 6 games you have no chance because you're not in. When
your conference is decent it gets 3 teams in. When your conference is bad you
only get 2 teams in. It seems the committee got things correct.
Dear Duckhunted, No where near as funny as the Utes!!!
Let me get this straightÂ¦..U won 25 games in high school
gyms and only got awarded the play-in game? Either you still have little to no
respect on the national stage or your conference has little to no respect on the
national stage. ItÂs probably both! I can assure you that Cal fans are
not bragging about playing in the play-in game like you guys are.I
know, I know the PAC-12 only got 2 bids this year, but some perspective helps.
This is arguably the worst the PAC-12 conference has ever been, but it still got
2 bids. In, arguably the WCCÂs best season ever, you got 3.
DevilishUteLet me help you understand the respect-o-meter.BYU, 3rd place team in that conference of high school-size gymnasiums,
received MORE respect than the regular season winner of the "conference of
chumpions"!In BYU's first year, the WCC receives the most bids
in conference history.In Utah's first year, the PAC 12 receives the
fewest bids in conference history and was perilously close to being a one-bid
conference.There's no question which team improved their conference
and which team added absolutely NOTHING to their conference.Only
NCAA teams have won 25+ games in each of the last 6 years, and three of those
teams, BYU, Gonzaga, and Saint Mary's, are in the WCC.Try dealing
with reality, instead your fantasy.The supposed PAC 12 "power
conference" is a national laughing stock.
DevilishUteSorry, you've misread the tea leaves.BYU fans
aren't bragging about being a 14th seed first round team, BYU fans are bragging
about BYU playing in their sixth straight NCAA tournament, despite having a
rebuilding year.NOBODY in the PAC 12 can match that record, although
there is a school in the WCC that exceeds that record.Try to keep
@devlishuteHow's this for perspective. utah is not in the
tournament. utah is not in any tournament. utah has not been in any tournament
for many years. utah will not be going to any tournaments for many more years.
utah only won 6 games. utah is terrible. Perspective.
Devlish Ute:The Cal Bears are in a play in game. So by your own
definition the PAthetiC 12 must not be very well respected.No one
here is bragging. There is a difference between bragging and being exited. But
since according to you there isn't then that must mean that U fans are
"bragging" about a six win season.
