Am I wrong, or do BYU guards need to score more and present more of a threat so
things can open up underneath? USU seemed to have no concern of dropping off
outside and clogging up the middle. I hope we don't live or die by the three
point line. As for no one being NBA quality on the team, I would think that
Davis has some potential there.
I was watching the Gonzaga-Washington State game last night. One of the posts
during the game was that of the 12 teams that have won at least 25 games the
last 4 years, 3 of them are in the WCC. Gonzaga, St. Mary's and the newcomer
BYU. Gonzaga looked very good last night and I think it will be tough to beat
them this year. We probably split with them with both teams winning at home.
Tough loss on the road to a perennial top-25 team, that has made noise in the
tournament the last several years. The team is young and will round into form
sooner rather than later. Look for an easy win in the home opener against our
"brothers" from the islands.I think we will give the Zags
everything they bargain for and more this year. A slow start will turn into 25+
wins and another deep tourney run.
Maybe byu can ask Jimmie to be a redshirt senior?
Winning team, losing team, winning team, losing team......I can still hear the
Dennis Interesting that you get to decide that they are only average
to poor, even before the season is two games old.
Jet Chang is a Jimmer-like player, which should make this a fun game to
watch.Knowledgeable fans aren't going to read too much into the
Cougars struggling to get in sync in the Spectrum. BYU is rebuilding with nine
freshman on the roster and many much more experienced BYU teams have struggled
in Logan. Carlino won't be playing until mid-December and BYU is still working a
lot of new players into the system.
Wow, Utah's undefeated and BYU has yet to win regular season game. I think
we're seeing a power shift in the Beehive state....Seriously, BYU
will be fine. Rogers will find his shot and some consistency, Carlino will
bring stability to the point, Harrison will show big improvement thru the
pre-season, CColl will improve as his knee improves. Obviously it will be much
more of a team concept this year, and they need to adjust to sharing the load,
but by the beginning of January, they will be a very solid team.
What is it that actually is going to be put in "sync"?Average to
poor teams don't get better at home, they just do their best and hope to the
North Star that something becomes of it.
We need to be realistic -- there are no current players on BYU's roster who have
the potential to continue at the next level.
"We need to push the ball." ZylstraThe correct quote
should be, "I need to push the ball." The PG controls the tempo and
pace of the game more than anyone else.Zylstra looked very
uncomfortable at the point. He is proving to be a better scorer than I thought
he would be. I think he'll do well when Carlino comes in to run the offense and
Zylstra moves to the "2".I was disappointed in the USU
game that we didn't get to see more of Harrison. He was very impressive in the
exhibition game. Davies and Harrison are probably the only two players who have
potential to continue at the next level.I love being able to see the
games on BYUtv.
