Sweep, Swept, or Split - NC Day Saturday

Post by Cougarbib » Fri May 03, 2013 12:28 am

If I am following things correctly, in addition to being in good seasons in tennis and lacrosse, etc., and despite having had disappointing, but not bad, seasons in football and basketball

BYU plays for the NC twice on Saturday. I am not sure if anyone has ever played for a NC twice on the same day. Men's VB and Rugby.

Will BYU sweep, get swept, or split?

Anae just might be the guy. Wisconsin DC says Anae is totally unpredictable because he just runs a bunch of plays with no rhyme or reason. Whooped Butt on Houston DC for 3 of 4 quarters. Destroyed Texas DC and HC careers.

Judging by media coverage, I am not sure anyone cares. But BYU is favored to win both Championships. ESPNU will cover VB Championship Saturday night.

The Bibster predicts a clean sweep. A BYU sweep. Considering all sports, BYU has a very well-rounded athletic program.

BYU goes Vs UC Irvine in volleyball. I imagine VB is a big deal at UCI given that they do not have a football team and are hardly a basketball powerhouse. BYU needs to remember to show up on the court and in the stands.

Having said that, my wife is insisting that we stay home and watch this one on TV even though we have relatives that are very involved with BYU and collegiate volleyball over the years.

I think our attendance at VB games is much higher at UCI, so they might not care too much. How were our fans last night?

The stands were only 3/4 full, but mostly with BYU fans from the sound/look of things.

And then a BYU player drops to a knee and proposes to his girlfriend!

Just two years ago, the lacrosse and rugby teams played for the NC on the same day, but rugby fell to Cal.
I'm just a regular, everyday normal guy,
I can't afford a car, I use public transportation,
I don't mind, I read till I reach my destination,
sometimes a newspaper, sometimes a book,
the money I save, this stuff is off the hook,
