some good…some bad… if the team can get to 500 it will be a pleasant surprise…edit that please…it would be a huge suprise…if the team can get to 5 in conference wins it will be a pleasant surprise…500 a massive achievement
long term blue goggles…short term could use some sunshine in the dark clouds ahead
We will do better than people think as long as the referees are fair. We know they are better than what we have had.
I am uncertain what you are thinking with.
Last years NET ratings…please note NET is not a poll but a reasonably accurate computer assessment of complex statistics.
20 Iowa State
43 Ok State
63 Texas Tech
160 South Florida
I believe Pope can recruit and coach well enough to compete…but at this point the entry into the B12 is going to be an ugly season.
I probably put that too strong…I used to believe, now I have hope that Pope can recruit and coach well enough…He has the right talk…He seems to have the right walk…but the results have not shown up yet…
Just to update with the newer schools for next year.
Obviously just a one year snap shot from last year.
Utah and Arizona along with BYU, Kansas, and Cincinnati are among the top 25 winning programs all time…Arizona has a coach I think will do. Pope maybe can get it worked out. Smith…improving each year…doing better than pope in two years…
BYU in a bubble near the bottom of the best basketball conference in America…work to do.
Some bad news today for BYU basketball. Glover without playing a single game at BYU has announced he has put his name in the portal per Dnews today.
Who is Glover? Oh, him. Didn’t want to compete for NIL money or the Honor Code was
More difficult than he thought. Too bad. Whose going to pick up some like that.
Whelp, Lose your point guard, lose your season.
At this point, there is nobody to replace him. couldn’t of been any worse news
it may be he wants a payday and this is his way of getting boosters to beg him back
I wondered about that. Another article I read speculated that might be the case. I assume he got some kind of deal to play at BYU and then he may have started comparing it to what some other players are getting at some of the other P5 schools and figures he can do better. NIL and the portal have turned college sports into pro sports.
Hey Chris just letting you know I’m alive and well! As usual I’m kind of a “non poster” in the summer…I’m known as an optimist, BUT…yeah, ok…I really like D Hall and think he will be remembered as a good player at BYU, but I’m not optimistic about this season. I saw too many B12 teams dancing last year and comparing our team, yikes…
it’s all good brother, nice to see you back breathin fire. I thought with Ques, we would compete in the B12 as in do better than anyone predicted but without a 2nd point, BYU will struggle in the best bball league in the nation by a mile.
Because the NIL makes these player’s professionals, they should be required to follow through on their contracts. If it wasn’t an honor code violation then Ques should suit up a Cougar. And this goes both ways.
I have a secret
Don’t tell anybody, but I think the BYU men’s basketball team can be competitive in the Big 12 this year.
I’ve been doing some preseason research and most of the teams in the league lost tons and tons of talent, not just leading scorers but in some places entire starting lineups. I’m not saying the league doesn’t have great recruits and transfers to take their places, but it’s all going to be largely unproven. The Cougars will be one of the most experienced teams in the entire league and that should count for something, right?
Pass it on.
Me, "Love the core talent, we still need a real PG
I’m told it’s now 50/50 whether Marcus Adams gets his waiver to play this year. I’m also told he is THAT good and a probably one and done. My fear is that if he REALLY IS THAT GOOD, and he DOESN’T get the waiver, there is nothing stopping him from dropping out of BYU, playing professionally in Europe this year, and entering the NBA draft in June. He didn’t come to BYU because he loves BYU or its mission–he came to BYU to ball, and if he can’t, why would he put his NBA dream on hold for a whole year?
PS LOVE the hypocrisy of the NCAA–they have no problem with kids being paid literally MILLIONS to step on campus (UT QB who got over a million from Ohio State–with the commitment made to him his JUNIOR year in high school to entice him to skip his senior year, didn’t even play there, then got many more millions to transfer to UT), or (Ques Glover) actually actually signing with BYU then leaving because KSU simply offered him more money, but then might not grant a waiver to a kid who is being paid ALMOST NOTHING to play at BYU? I absolutely love that.
The NCSS picks on BYU any chance they get. BYU phobs the emery thing was a Joke. just ask Kensas and OK
The NCAA is probably run by woke types so it doesn’t look good. If it was the U he would probably get the waiver. How many extra years did Asiata get at the U. It seems like he was there about 10 years. He must have been about 30 years old when he got his associate degree in women’s studies and used up his eligibility to play football.
I am very happy we have the ncaa to protect the purity of the student athlete.
A free trip to Harry Potter World is right up there with an assistant coach lining you up with a hooker.
exactly, just how many games did Kansas and Az vacate when they got caught getting $$$ payouts from Addidas.
Did any of the above schools have to vacate “wins” as a penalty for cheating? And why was BYU hit so hard when Coach Rose self reported when he found out about Emery’s gifts?
just glad we are a part of the Big 12 now vs. indy and blowing in the wind.
