BYU did great in France 5 years ago winning EVERY game, while utah lost EVERY
game in Australia. My point?BYU needs to bring some Greece home to
aid utah in a time of need.Boom.Go Y
Probably not much of a chance but it would be neat if these game in Europe were
televised. I have a feeling Rogers will emerge as a go to guy. He is very
offensive minded, Abuo should show alot more offense this year too. I'm hoping
Davies ends up being the leading scorer for this yrs team, that would be neat
and a good ending to this scenario. Although Davies may have NBA potential and
if that happened it would just add to this story.
Great experience for these young men. Even for those who've been overseas on
missions.Glad to see BYU taking advantage of overseas play as often
as allowed. With BYUtv being international, doing this often also helps BYU's
international brand.This little excursion will tell us a little bit
of what life after Jimmer will be like.Maybe Abouo and Hartsock CAN
become team leaders on the floor with great Senior seasons.

isn't Davies traveling???? How much "Penance" does this kid have to
do? I am hoping that we are not turning a positive experience for Davies and the
university into a negative one." ===We went to see a
family member's plaque in the student study section of Legacy Hall. Last player
out was Brandon Davies in a white shirt and tie.He was very positive
and upbeat.I'm guessing there are more people that don't understand
the process "worried" about Brandon, than Brandon.People
talk about the "BYU" experience. I never had the BYU experience, never
wanted it.Yet, I have a ton of respect for their athletics.That being said, I would guess that Brandon is having a very special
experience, one that will last him his whole life.The kid will get
to Greece someday, if he wants.For now, he seems intent on being the
best "student athlete" that he can be.Why not let him?
poymanI expect Brandon to be cleared to return to the team sometime
soon after the fall semester starts.

Talk about exposure for BYU athletics! BYU truly is an international brand.
Thats pretty cool for these kids to do this. Even though the NCAA allows it, I
don't see a lot of schools doing this. It's good for BYU and hope they can get
some coverage nationally (ESPN highlights of the friendlies?).
We need Davies back so we can carry on and build on the Dave Rose experience!
