We're going to destroy Oregon because we have better players and a better
If Carlino gets hot and scores 30, then BYU wins this one. He can do it.
Mildred, your team is not playing Oregon. They are done with basketball for the
year. Or maybe you though this article was talking about Baseball.
I love every post from "Mildred" because they're always so
ludicrously overblown and out of touch with anything serious. Some clever U
supporter has created a deliciously sarcastic avatar in the dear lady.My biggest concern is that Carlino will try to play the hero, rather than the
distributor. If that happens, the game will be long and painful for BYU
fans.Do the Cougars have much of a chance against Oregon with Kyle
Collinsworth out? Most BYU fans would say, "Not much of a chance." I
hope Oregon is overconfident, but I know they have a ton of talent and a solid
offense.BYU's offense lacks dimension with Collinsworth out.
The failure of Mark Pope to develop Austin offensively means that BYU will
essentially play Oregon with four possible scorers being defended by five Oregon
Ducks. I don't see the Cougars prevailing, but I would love to be wrong!
Obviously something has changed, an absence of naysayer comments here, it's
like... "I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions
of (ok, actually just a few) voices suddenly cried out in terror and were
suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."Good
One of the following three needs to step up big; Halford, Sharp , or Bartley.
If one of them does, we could surprise Oregon.
Shouldn't the #2 wcc team be favored over the #4 pac 12 team?And no, if Collinsworth was playing byu would not be favored - so the question
remains, why would the #4 pac 12 team be favored over the second best team from
the powerhouse WCC?Go Ducks!
Chris B"Go Ducks!"I cheer for my TEAMS, not my
Conferences but I understand why Utes have to cheer for a conference because
Utah leaves very little to cheer for.
The Oregon gravy train just pulled into the Huntsman Center. All aboard!
@Chris B,"Shouldn't the #2 wcc team be favored over the #4
pac 12 team?"You have to ask? After all the denigrating over
the years of BYU joining the WCC? Would you feel better if we tell you that
"No", the #2 WCC should not be favored over the #4 of the Pac 12,
especially with their 2nd best player out! Just like SMC, the #4 WCC was not
favored over the Pac 12 #6 Utes. I'm sad your Utes blew a big lead and
lost because I think they're much better then the way they played in the
final 10 minutes of the game.Good luck Cougars!
I look forward to the game; really don't care who wins. As long as
it's as close and well played as the first meeting; I'm good with it.
Let the madness begin.I love this time of year!Go
I think BYU has a good chance of winning this game. But if they are up by ten at
half time I'm certainly not going to call the game as over like certain
people did against SMUI think its pretty sad how some BYU detractors
such as Chris B. resort to taking stabs at BYU as if nobody in the world is
aware that his Utes still can't post a significant W on the road, and do
absolutely nothing to add to PAC prestige that he seems so enamored by.Face it Chris the utes are not even also rans in your conference.
We couldnt make it in there to win them so you can win them for us big brothers
because that what big brothers are for and thanks!Go duck!
I really think the key will be Carlino, which scares me. If he plays well and
doesn't try to do too much, we can beat them. We should have beat them at
their place and blew a nice lead very late to go to overtime. Our defense is
better, but without Collinsworth, it is tough to say. If he were healthy, I
think this would have many experts pick as an upset, but without him, Oregon has
to be favored. Tourney time is great because it lets you really see who are the
good conferences and who are not. If you have multiple higher seeded teams
losing from a conference, then it is clear that conference was overrated. The
Pac 12 had this happen last year. It is a fun sporting event.
"Go Ducks" because my team choked on a 'cupcake' in the JV
tournament on Tuesday in Moraga
