It seems to me that the zags winning all the time is detrimental to the activity on this board. The more they win the less we have to talk about. The more they lose the more we have to discuss. The team is making us posters look bad. Oh well, keep it up team there is always next year.

It the winning corollary. More winning = less #####ing.

Some of that, for sure, but the joyless, humdrum WCC season, which drags on seemingly forever, is the major factor. What, we need to debate the vagaries of USD?

That's my point Jazz. If we could play the top 10 teams every year we could bit-h more or maybe not. To a discerning eye there is a lot to be gleaned from every game - I wish I had one.

I'm not so sure I agree. It wasn't much different prior to the WCC start.

In years past, the WCC schedule didn't seem to slow forum participation.

I believe Angelo is closer to the real reason.

Not quite the same as complaining after a loss, but there have been quite a few threads this year talking about the perfect record and also complaining about the lack of respect from some pundits/ballot voters/yahoos on message boards etc.

agree SW, maybe it's my life that is boring, way to much time on this board today. Maybe I will do something or maybe not Ah the joys of retirement. Does anyone want to be my boss? You know give me some direction. I've got to warn you I'm a pretty poor indian and my chief's skiills are not much better.

Please start a new thread that is witty, relevant to current team, invites serious basketball X's and O's discussion, and is controversial enough to inspire heated back and forths with a healthy dose of jazz.

p.s. I'd be a poor boss; I started with please.

The same phenomenon may be occurring at games, where there's less excitement for the team with all the winning.

All I have is anecdotal evidence from one game, but I was back in the Kennel for the Pacific game, where I threw on my 2013 KC shirt and went took a spot in the student section. The chants were mostly the same, but the fervor was lacking. I hope this isn't a trend when BYU comes to town. I had to get a few "you got swatted" and "fllloooppperrr" chants going. We're only talking 3 or 4 years......

I am typically inspired to post when someone pisses me off complaining about Few, or complaining about a specific player, or complaining in general. So, count me as one who is way less likely to post in a year like this because the posts that PISS ME OFF are way less likely to make an appearance.

GO ZAGS!!!!!

Here's to hoping I never post again!

Turnovers are sometimes a problem and we should be better from the line. We aren't hitting our wide open mid-range jumpers consistently. Collins is still getting into foul trouble too early. Injuries are starting to pile up and hopefully coaches recognize this and will save the players from themselves. What was Few thinking not going to the bench earlier in that blowout game?

Yes we are undefeated and ranked #1 in the nation but shouldn't we be doing better? Hopefully we can right the ship before the dance (assuming we get in).

Sincerely,

Well, looks like we got the answer. Winning 29 in a row has quieted the board. Losing one game make the sky fall, the world class armchair coaches appear and create a buzz in the forum.

Note to Few: GUBoards needs more business, please lose a little more often. [/sarcasm]
