The Majerus era is over.

7 in a row, 11 of the last 12, 12-3 during the Rose era, 149-145 overall

During the Rose era:

BYU 209-66(76%), 8 20+ win seasons, 4 conf champ, 6 NCAAs, consensus nat'l POY
Utah 116-137(46%), 1 20+ win season, 1 conf champ, 1 NCAA, 0 noteworthy players

Face it; the Utes are a washed up has-been that hasn't won a single NCAA tournament game since the last remnants of the Majerus era left the program almost a decade ago.

Way to go Brandon. You're one reason BYU continuously rate as state champions.

As with most 15th men on an NBA roster, Davies will likely spend most of his time in street clothes behind the bench, or in the D league. That said, he's still signed to the NBA minimum and is living the dream. Good luck to him. Hope he does well.

I have to say, that is an impressive leap. Davies had a VERY nice season, but disappeared sometimes, and never seemed to really take over games. I didn't think he'd make the NBA, but his hard work has certainly paid off. In the NBA though, maybe that is what they need to round out some teams...somebody who can play smart, well, and not need to dominate the ball. I still do wonder what might have been - with Davies, I think BYU makes its first Final Four two years ago. Alas, we'll never know.

Congratulations Brandon!

When the Clippers waived Brandon I was among many who posted he would likely get picked up by another NBA team based on his past accomplishments and current skill set.

Someone else was literally the first (as always) to proclaim that anyone who really knows basketball knew Brandon wouldn't make or stick with a team in the NBA.

I have a proposal. Each time this prognosticator is wrong, he/she refrain from posting anything on that particular topic until/unless his/her next "mark it down" foreseeing comes to pass. What say ye?

These boards would be much more enjoyable and less off-topic or divisive.

As always...GO COUGARS!

"I think most people who know anything about basketball saw this coming. Davies is an ok ball player, just not NBA material. He'll do just fine in Europe, and who knows, he very likely could end up playing alongside Jimmer rather shortly.

Good luck Davies in Europe, or wherever you can land."

All the above rant blah blah blah a month ago from chrissy bb.

Chrissy - Two things:

1 - Your football team is a bottom dweller.
2 - Your basketball team is a bottom dweller.

Nuff said.

PS - The BYU Men's Volleyball team is more exciting than anything on the hill.

@ Chris B
Chris you have zero credibility, give it a rest.

Good for him. But the 76ers are projected to be the worst team in the NBA. Davies isn't going to change that.

Why is everyone bring up on this CB? I don't see any comments from him or did someone put in a buffer in my computer?

Well, brandon did go east but not in Euro. Good for him and hope you will get a chance to play more. Who knows, Jimmer night come to town because he too is smart! Well, I like to see Jimmer in Jazz.
