It will only get better and better for Utah basketball. Recruits should be
paying very close attention.
DutchThat's a good point, and an awful lot of experience on the
big man front for these guys to draw from.
Coach K is doing a great job with the program and the big men. Don't over
look the fact that coach K also brought in Chris Burgess as a graduate assistant
coach to work with the bigs. Yes, things are going well with basketball in
Serious question--I'd be curious to know how many recruiting
trips outside ut cty rose has made to date? One key to Coach K ultimately
winning over BC was how dogged he was in recruiting him....Went to all of his
games/maxed-out every form of communication allowed and really developed a
deep/meaningful relationship w/him....Conversely, rose was entirely 100% M.I.A.,
which should concern the tds fanbase.Even my H.S.' PD down here
required virtually zero effort on the part of the byu coaching staff....Once he
moved beyond his overall recruitment excitement, he went where everybody down
here knew he was from Day 1.My point is, rose is apparently banking
on these LP kids to deliver what he's yet to accomplishment, even w/their
program's most celebrated player ever, and that's reaching the next
level and making deep runS in The Tourney....Personally, I disbelieve his style
will ever lend itself to it, even w/the re-focus on these rules....His teams
aren't equipped to play the requisite D/have zero quality depth....And the
extent to which Coach K outcoached rose last weekend really speaks volumes.
From the article..."Bachynski came in and again gave the Utes a boost with a
couple of early baskets and rebounds on his way to an 11-point, 8-rebound night
in an 81-64 victory."Wow, what a boost when you can put in your
3rd string center and get 11 points and 8 rebounds out of him. So great to
watch a player mature on the court and in life by becoming a selfless person. I
agree with others who have praised coach K's impact on our big men, he has
made these guys so much better and they play with such ease that they still
somehow slip under the radar.
@cougarfanindenialIs there any proof to your claim? Or is that kinda
like Bronco saying he gets all of the recruits he offers. Why
didn't Brother Rose make an offer? Surely he could have used him this year
and last. Rose Recruits too many scrappy, slow, shooters and not enough big men.
I know he was hoping and praying that Loveridge, and Chapman would help with
that. Too bad Krystowiak is crushing him on the recruiting front. You can keep
the Lone Peak pipeline, its nothing special.I'm waiting for the
Y to make a Final Four appearance, or even a WCC championship. Haha good luck.
CFiT, you are absolutely incorrect. I've specifically asked Dallin if he
had any interest in going to BYU, and he said no. Same with Jeremy Olsen, who
WAS recruited hard and offered by Coach Rose. Dave Foster, interestingly, was
pretty much all set to go to the Y, but a gaffe in scholarship availability when
a player expected to leave on a mission didn't go ended up closing the
door. Some kids, LDS and non-LDS alike, really want the BYU experience, and
that's great. But believe it or not, even some great LDS kids just
aren't too interested in it, and there's nothing wrong with that.
I love his game - He is going to be one of the keys to the Utes success this
year and next. My daughter, however, just loves Dallin Bachynski. Don't
worry Dallin - she is only 16, I can keep her reigned in for a couple more
years. Keep getting better and sealing the deal for the Utes!Go
CougFaninTXBachynski was pretty clear that he would have come to BYU
if offered...You people are absolutely detached from anything and
everything in the real world. How do you function on daily basis? You claim
requires detailed the sources. Dallin will excel under the coaching
of Coach K and be ready for the NBA should the opportunity present itself. Rose
doesn't teach defense or teamwork.
cft--"Bachynski was pretty clear that he would have come to BYU
if offered, but he was never offered."Which source[s] are you
referencing where DB was "pretty clear" on it?This
kid's built like stone. When mika was called for the flagrant 2 foul which
automatically ejected him from the game, he didn't even remotely phase DB,
as he put the bball in the hoop all net w/ease.Guaranteed, if a big
man wants to develop greatly and improve his professional-stock in the state,
then Coach K/The U stand alone. No way does JW even remotely sniff Europe were
it not for Coach K's superior-tutelage....Coach K will really see it openly
manifest itself in a huge way w/the significantly more athletic/talented
recruits he's bringing in [i.e., JLOVE/BC/KK, in addition to our other kids
on this year's roster].Finally, Dallin's brother [ASU],
Jordan, took a couple of years to max his potential, yet DB's
brute-strength and mental-/physical-toughness will ultimately push his overall
production light-years beyond Jordan's, in the end. JB gets absolutely
brutalized by tougher/more physical teams.
Bachynski was pretty clear that he would have come to BYU if offered, but he was
never offered. He is doing well. I really wish he was wearing blue instead of
red. One of the few that BYU missed out on. We could really use him this year
It was simply a treat to watch Dallin compete Saturday night. The three Utah
centers can take care of each other and they really wore down the Cougars'
front line.A lot of ball left for Dallin. Remember Wooden's
advice, and Coach K has a lot of those qualities, ignore the press clippings son
and just continue to make yourself and your team better.Go Dallin
and Go Utes!
Dallin is the real deal and will flourish under the guidance of Coach K. Insightful article...GO UTES!
He's a real difference maker. Bring a lot of energy and really is
Great to hear good things about Dallin, I was impressed by his play early last
year, and have been perplexed by what happened the rest of the year. Life's
not always a storybook, but sounds like he's turning things around. Great
to have the Utes back on the upswing, I've missed the good old days of the
'90's so much!
Very happy for Dallin and the team to see him embrace his role with such
selflessness. He's big and athletic, and against certain matchups can cause
nightmares to the opposing team with a soft shooting touch and a semblance of
ball-handling skill for a big man. Keep it up, Dal, the sky's the limit!
Guy has been playing great this year.I look forward to continuing to
cheer him and best team in Utah on.Keep it up and March Madness is
very much a possibility for this team.Go Utes, onward and upward!
