Tyler has come back from 2 years off in a more dominating fashion than any other
RM athlete I'm familiar with. If he isn't at least named to the 3rd
team all-American team I'll be shocked. What bitterly dissapoints is the
weak team he had waiting for him. Dave has some real studs lined up in the
distant future but his additions recently have been JC average-, not to mention
the very weak ex-Utes that have done little to earn starting time. Sharp hits 10
with 6 rebbies following game after game of fouling, bumbling, getting beat on
defense and missing shots suddenly he's Bigtime. To see Harrison not being
able to rejoin the team, as a result of numbers stinks when he has 20 times the
potentional of the Sharps, Cusicks, Harwards and the JC transfers. Coach
really, you can't just recruit in the 801 area code year after year and win
30 games. I think you recruit to your weakness's meaning you see what you
needed to beat the team that trashed you out of the NCAA's. You find speed
and athletic ability, not 6-8 stickmen who can't jump.
It'll be great having Tyler lead the Cougars for the next three years.
Lightening lad, the best recruiter cannot predict two of his players not being
able to return after recruiting is over. When Rogers and Collinsworth both
physically could not continue that changed the dynamics and the pieces that were
put in place. There were not more recruits out there. I would suggest you go
back and take coaching 101 and 101 again. Because you do not understand what is
going on. You ignore the Honor Code, which excludes 99% of the
athletes. That drastically limits your pool of players. Harrison
left on his own accord, which was not planned on by the coaches. Please when you comment, make some relevant comments, based on facts and
Haws is amazing. Not quite Jimmer Amazing but he is only a sophomore.Coach
Rose has done an excellent job of recruiting. I was disappointed to seen
Harrison go. It is an absolute shame that nobody knew that Rogers and
Collinsworth would not be able to return to the team. Had Rose known Harrison
could have had one of those scholarships and he would have stayed at BYU.Yes, I was disappointed to seen Harrison go, but not near as
disappointed as coach Rose. I think that Harrison was none too pleased with the
way things worked out. He would have preferred to remain a cougar.
Lightening LadYou obviously haven't paid any attention
whatsoever to Dave Rose's recruiting if you think that he only recruits the
801 area code.9 of the 15 players on this season's roster are
from outside the state of Utah, including Washington and Colorado state
MVP'sJordan Chatman - Vancouver, WashingtonCory Calvert -
Parker, ColoradoAnd, let's not forget Jimmer, who was from
upstate New York.Of course, when you have one of the top ranked high
school teams in the entire country right in your own backyard, it makes sense to
recruit local talent as well.
I hate comparing players. Haws is a very different type of player than Jimmer.
With that said, Haws is a special player. He is going to put up a lot of points
in his career at BYU and it doesn't matter if he scores more or less than
Jimmer. It will be a lot of points.Looking ahead, I think the team
is going to be really, really good in two years when Haws and Carlino are
seniors, K Collinsworth will be a junior and Mika will be a sophomore. Austin
and Sharp will be seniors, Harward a junior. And Chatman will be a Freshman.
Marty's comments are indicative of the quality of people both Marty and
Tyler are. The kid has earned everything in the gym, with lots of work and
commitment. Tyler is probably not the most gifted athlete naturally but he has
developed into an awfully special basketball player. And,today, few players
have a mid-range game (it's now all 3's or layups). Not Tyler.
He's comfortable shooting from just about any spot on the floor. Ask
coaches...that's rare.I'm a huge fan.
I played competition with Tyler when we were both younger. He was something
special for his age then, but has developed SO much as a player over the years.
Comparing players-especially in college-is SO difficult because of the changing
competition year to year and the style of play. Jimmer is known for being a
sharp-shooter. Period. Tyler is a fantastic all around player. Haws is
intimidating to his opponents on both ends of the floor. He is a dangerous
@lightninglad all i have ever seen you do on this thread is complain, so if you
think you can play any better than the team i say go try out ,otherwise i
suggest you be quiet because most if us on here are getting tired of all the
negativity that you put out week after week,enough already.
I'm wondering if Haws has caught the eye of any pro scouts. If he's
this good as a soph, assuming reasonable improvement, I would think he's
got a shot to be a solid 2 in the League. His offensive game is about as diverse
as it gets.
