dumprake:You are not far wrong. At the beginning of this season, it
seemed like Brandon was much stronger and more assertive in the post, and making
much better decisions about shot selection and dumb fouls. I would credit Mark
Pope for contributing to that improvement. Unfortunately, since the conference
season started, it looks like Brandon has lost some confidence and fallen back
into some old habits. He has great skills, and if he can get his head back in
the right place, he could really help himself and his team.
Dave Rose is a class act. Love what he has done with the program (except when
they beat my beloved Utes ;). Here's to many more years and wins to you
Coach Rose!Go UTES!!
Settle down dumprake; your whining about Davies' shortcomings are way over
the top.True, Davies still gets himself into foul trouble more than
he should, but he has decent range for a big man and some very good moves on the
low block; his real skill set is more suited to that of a power forward, than a
center, so he's really playing out of position, filling a role that Chris
Collinsworth would have filled if he'd been healthy.
I'm happy for coach Rose, he's done an admirable job. I have one big
complaint. Davies came to BYU soft, lacking good skills, and prone to make dumb
plays and especially dumb fouls. He has gotten into early foul trouble for four
years now. Rose has had 4 years to make him a better than average player--he has
not done so; Davies still gets into early foul trouble, makes some really dumb
plays, still can't shoot and still disappears in big games against top
Pretty hard to not cheer for Coach Rose.
Gdog3finallyI am a BYU fan who agrees with you completely. Rose is a
great coach and a likable guy. Bronco is a good fit for BYU but not as likable.
Give Coach K some time and he'll be very good for Utah.
Looking forward to another 200+ wins with Coach Rose at the helm. Keep it up
I am a Ute fan who has long dug the intensity and competitiveness of Dave Rose.
I think BYU's football team could use the fight Rose has. I do see Bronco
as the right fit for BYU, I just don't find him likable (smug factor). But
Rose is just to tough to not respect. What he has done with BYU's program
after quite a few down years preceding his tenure is what I hope Coach K can do
for my Utes.
