This just in: BYU and San Diego State are really, really good this year.
The Cougars defeated the Aztecs last night behind 43 points from Jimmer Fredette, moving both teams' records to 20-1.
They’ve won in hostile environments and friendly confines, on neutral courts, in tournaments, against conference rivals and unfamiliar non-conference foes.
They’ve won blowouts and nailbiters. They’ve won pretty. They’ve won ugly. Between them, they’ve done a whole lot of winning in a whole lot of ways.
These two heavyweights have clearly established themselves among the very best teams in the 11-year history of the Mountain West Conference.
Are they the best ever? Maybe. The MWC has a fairly brief history and relatively modest accumulation of postseason notoriety.
A handful of squads merit consideration for the crown; the most dangerous, most potent, most successful MWC team ever.
Let the countdown begin.
