I apologize to all my loyal readers out there. Life has gotten busy and my wife has given birth to a beautiful baby girl. Time is short and sleep is even shorter.
Lots of exciting things have been happening with BYU sports. The BYU win over Utah in Salt Lake has to be a highlight. Of course that came on the tail of beating #13 Air Force. A great win for BYU. A couple more quality wins and we can probably make it to the tourney with an at large bid. I think that tonight’s a must win game for that scenario. UNLV is ranked #25 in the nation and #1 in the mountain west conference. This would do a lot for BYU’s morale and standing to beat BYU. It is at the friendly confines of the Marriott Center. BYU looked great against UNLV in the first half here in Las Vegas. Let’s hope they can do it for an entire game tonight.
The talk I’ve heard in Las Vegas is that UNLV is going to crack now that they are ranked in the top 25. They waited this long to get ranked and they’re just going to lose that ranking. That would be fine with me.
My opinion is that if Young and Plaisted can stay out of foul trouble, then BYU will win. Otherwise, I’m tossing this one to UNLV and leaving BYU’s March Madness fate in the hands of the MWC tournament.
3 other interesting BYU happenings.
#1 BYU volleyball crushed #2 UC Irvine – This team is looking really good.
Bronco Talks about Brian Urlacher – I love hearing a coach talk about his past players.
Rob Morris and John Tait Meet in Super Bowl – They use to be roomates at BYU and so this is a great little story to follow.
BYU Women’s Basketball Tied for #1 in MWC – Did I already say I love Coach Judkins? I think I did.
