I think that Raul just never found his confidence... I do think that he has the
potential to be a streak shooter and could possibly help a program... Perhaps a
team like the Utes could use him... They are in desperate need of someone who
can shoot the ball from outside.
Louisiana CougarPineville, LADelgado and Ambrosino were
both poor choices and demonstrated that Rose needs to work much harder at
recruiting -- and bring in an assustabt coach who can help big men.Louisiana Cougar, are you for real? Rose just pulled the best recruiting
class BYU has probably ever had. Sure, two JUCO's didn't workout but,
I'd be more inclined to judge by the four year recruits...
Jimmer is to the kings as Delgado was to BYU.
Best wishes to him. This is a win/win for both the player and BYU.
True Blue Cougar... Surely you can't be serious. "I am serious, and
stop calling me Shirley". Rose is a good coach, but if you really believe
his emphasis is on defense, you have definitely been watching a different team
than I have. They are bad defenders, and play zone 90% of the time. Jimmer
never played defense while he was there, and the current Cougs play o.k. in
zone, but are awful man defenders. Please don't say Delgado couldn't
play because of his defense. Bad offense maybe, but not defense.
Delgado is a Utah kid, so I wouldn't be surprised if he stays in-state.
Weber has a great program and just lost Scott Bamforth, so maybe Delgado could
find some playing time there. Hope he does well wherever he goes.

I agree with the comments about Delgado just not being very good. I was never
impressed with him when he was on the court and he did just plain look lost. I
hope wherever he lands he has success, but Division I ball just may be above his
"has decided to transfer..." what a generous set of words for, in
reality, he was shown the door and decided to take it. Nothing wrong with Rose
showing the exit to players who are not performing or contributing. Welcome to
reality. However, Delgado would be far better off to just hang up the gym shoes
and get his degree from BYU than transfer to UVU or some other school for one
Good luck to Raul wherever he ends up.
Roul, although a good shooter, never demonstrated the ablility to play defense,
racking up foul after foul. The Rose program is based on solid defense and Roul
didn't seem to understand that part of the game. I wish him well in his
new endeavor and hope he finds success. JC transfers need more than a record
of making threes. A complete game is required to compete and contribute for a
position at BYU. Difficult transition for all JC transfers including Ambresino.
Honestly I am not disappointed at all that he is leaving. He isn't very
Wow, I hope he doesn't transfer to a WCC school...especially a power house
like San Diego or USF...they have BYU trouble this year...he could be the
difference maker if that happens...Wonder what Mildred in Fillmore
I wish him well.
Sorry it didn't work out so well for Delgado at BYU, I wish him well
wherever he goes.
Yeah, I kind of expected this.
Unfortunately, Delgado never found his groove at BYU. Hopefully for Raul, a
change of scenery will improve his basketball fortunes.
I hope the new SLCC signee reads this as his signing had the same hoopla that
Delgado's signing had when he signed. The JC game is so different
it's hard to compete right away.
Rose hinted that attrition could happen with one or two players.
