Take a look at this post on cougarboard. The person predicted a BYU loss and BYU choking. Winning after someone saying that is awesome!!
Too bad they turned the TV off and didn’t see the ending. If they aren’t a Yewt fan, then I’m not sure we want them as a BYU fan.

I’m sure that most BYU fans are focusing on the BYU vs. Utah game tomorrow, but true BYU sports fans have been anticipating the Thanksgiving holiday weekend full of great BYU sports games. Tonight BYU men’s basketball will face #6 Louisville at the Findlay Toyota Las Vegas Invitational. Here’s an excerpt from the Desert Morning News describing BYU heading into this game:
A 4-0 record, a team scoring 90-plus points a game and a 31-point margin of victory — BYU would love to continue its torrid start and gaudy results, but the Cougars know the level of competition takes a steep spike as they face No. 6 Louisville tonight.
Sounds like an exciting game. An undefeated BYU team that’s been scoring points like crazy and meeting a highly ranked opponent. The only thing more we could ask for is one of those 4 previous wins to have been against ranked opponents and not cellar dwellers.
Living in Las Vegas I was excited to see BYU play a quality opponent (yes, I don’t count UNLV as a quality opponent). I checked the Orleans arena website to find out about ticket prices and was shown that I’d need to spend $91 for the entire 2 day tournament. Are you kidding me? I read on and it tells me that they aren’t selling individual tickets either. Are they serious? First the CSTV broadcasting deal and now $91 to see a game.
Ok, so I might not mind spending that much money since hopefully BYU will win and get to play North Carolina tomorrow. However, a bunch of my extended family is visiting for the holidays and they wouldn’t even consider going to one game at that price. Not to mention, the BYU vs. Utah game is tomorrow and if BYU loses tonight, then am I really going to pass up BYU vs. Utah to go and see BYU vs. Old Dominion?
Well, thank goodness that somehow BYUTV has the rights to broadcast the game tonight. Should be a lot of fun to grab a piece of delicious pumpkin pie and watch the game. Although, I’d much rather be at the game screaming my heart out. Just not at $91 a head.
