Should BYU get a 1 seed

Personally, not yet. BYU and San Diego State have had good years, but besides beating San Diego State twice, the only other notable win is against Arizona at home. The other number 1 seeds in contention as of right now is Duke, Kansas, Texas, Pitt, Ohio State, Purdue, and San Diego State if they win out and win their tournament. Unless Kansas loses to Missouri and to a non rank team in the Big 12 tournament, they are pretty much guaranteed a number 1 seed. Texas losing yesterday will drop them out for contention for now, but winning out and beating KU again on neutral ground will boost their chances again. Pitt has a good shot at a number 1 seed, and with the Big East, a good Norte Dame could get a number 1 seed if they win out too. If ND wins out, that could allow two number 1 seeds to be from the Big East. 


The Big East is considered the best conference in basketball, and seeing them chew up half of the number 1 seeds isn’t unlikely. Likely the other two number 1 seeds will be chewed up by a Big 10 and a Big 12 school. Overall I think BYU lacks the overall resume that the other big conference schools have to be a number 1 seed, but BYU will have a good argument if they win out and get a little help from the other conferences woes; however, currently I think the number 1 seeds are chewed up by more deserving teams.

I don't know how much clearer I can be that I don't hate BYU. My point is to show how illogical people's arguments, mostly from all MWC fans have been. I've made it clear they don't deserve the 1 seed at this time, that doesn't FOREVER. The only thing I truly hate is inconsiderate comments.

When I am called a Mormon hater, that seems pretty rude and harsh.  The way he posted his "argument" was uncalled for and he deserved everything I said. You can make the argument "you should be a better man." But when someone comes onto my blog and calls me a mormon hater and accuses my blog of spawning just to fight against his is false, inconsiderate, and rude.

It's not the name of the school on the jersey I'm looking at, but when you play against one of the worst Big East schools, SouthFlorida (and had to beat them in overtime), Fresno State, UTEP, a mediocre UCLA team, Missippi Valley State, and only current teams that are rank in your schedule is Utah State, San Diego State, and Arizona. Then you conference has only two rank teams, San Diego State and BYU, and the only other probable tournament team is UNLV. I don't think an 18-10 Colorado State has a chance to make it. You safely need 20+ wins to make it, from mid majors it's more. My problem with your argument is you are using solely emotions and bias to base your judgement. For numerous times which you guys somehow ignore is I don't think they deserve a 1 seed YET! By yet, I mean there are 4 other teams currently more deserving. By early March, that could change in which you guys earned a 1 seed over the other teams in contention as BYU was mor deserving.

Johnny had a point I just read your bog after seeing what you wrote on his blog wow Harsh dude. Byu is on an historic run and those of us that have been around college ball for a many years, I've just started reading johnnys tips blog but he has a large following that's growing , he is very respected coach in Utah, I think your way off base, it looks like he was stating his thoughts , he wasnt rude to you.

I was tempted not to respond, but I can't ignore this. First of all, your an idiot and a bigot. You mostly make fake acquisations that I'm a morman hater. I've had one post on BYU and you assume my blog is a mormon hater site. You know what, grow up. Then you say my blog spawn instantly when a simple click on my name will show previous blog posts dating to last year.


The main reason is I get more views with my blog post than yours is I make a simple argument in my posts based on my personal opinion. I understand if you don't like it, but I hate it when someone comes on here and crys foul with ALL CAPS by trying to convey a point I'm some bigot and don't know anything. And you know what Johnny, screw you. You obviously don't know much and respects others opinions. That is funny you don't respect others opinions since you called me a mormon hater. If that doesn't spell hypocrisy, then I don't know what does. Oh wait, basically you are a hypocritical bigot.


Saying BYU is on historic run is false. There have been teams who were unrank and finish in the top 10 at the end of the season. There have been smaller schools going into the dance as number 1 seed (Houston in the early 80s). There has been an 8 seed who won the tournament (Villanova in 80s). There has been a small school in the championship game, Butler last year. Also George Mason a few years ago making it to the final four. And saying your team is doing something hisotric shows your ignorance and stupidity. Good day.

They deserve it, that's for sure. Whether they get it now is another question.
