this past week, Tom Holmoe was on our local sports program “Talking Sports”.
It was a two part interview and basically was about what he is doing to get BYU ready for the Big12 entrance.
He has some interesting comments about how there is a group of people working on the transition and how BYU will do it “Their way” as to oppose to doing it some other college way. How they are going through each of the current contracts and seeing which ones they keep which ones they do away with. His point was that he wanted to get that part done early so the other team can have time to fill the game slot. It was mentioned that Kalani salary was below mid range of the other coaches salaries in the Big 12, of course Tom would not touch that with a comment.
Another part was about how recruiting needs to step up to get the players that can compete in the big 12. He mentioned that Pope was doing just that, because according to Tom the Big 12 is the conference of the best basketball right now.
I have been trying to find a link to it on the internet, but so far, no luck… So until then I will post things that I remember about his comments.
