Okay, I feel better now.

Utah's loss was DEFINITELY more embarrassing than BYU's.

Final score: Arizona 84, Utah 71

Yeah, losing by 13 is WAY worse than losing by... 13.

Super intelligent dude.

First, I agree with Allen. And second, BYU's loss is much worse than Utah's for the sole fact that BYU hasn't won a first round game in 19 YEARS!

Well,

1. Utah played a #12 seed
2. Utah played a team who should not have made it to the tourney
3. Utah played a team who had lost 5 of its last 6
4. 19 turnovers!
5. Utah NEVER lead
6. Utah's scorers: 4 seniors, 2 juniors and a sophomore

I'm not saying BYU had a great game, but I'm glad it wasn't as embarrassing.

For all the crap the moron Ute fans give Giacoletti, at least he won a game with his ugly, dominant Australian 7-footer. Boylen had no prayer. I think Boylen was looking past AZ to Wake Forest.

Boylen and Giacoletti both came in and inherited dominant ugly big guys. Both had some success with those big guys, and both will have suffered a big dropoff after those big guys leave. So how long before Ute fans will be cursing Boylen's name and complaining that he ruined Utah's program? Hey Ute fans: wake up. The fat man was an anomaly at Utah. Success that will likely never be repeated. You are now an average mid-major program that will make the tourney once every 3-4 years with a senior-laden team, where you will lose in the first round, again.

Oh and it was 20 turnovers. And the Utes have Luka Drca on their team.

You know, I do feel better. BYU may have crapped the bed in the tourney yet again, but BYU is a better program right now than Utah. No rational thinker can deny that. Utah had Nevill this year. Once he didnt have MW refs tucking him in at night he suddenly was not very good.
