"eastcoastcoug" comments from this morning declaring that Coach Rose is
a great person but not a good coach seemed ignorant to me. He stated that they
have "never one any games that mattered", "name one". I will
name four off the top of my head. 1. How about a couple weeks ago in Provo
when they defeated the same Gonzaga team they lost to last night. 2.
Defeating Gonzaga by over 20 points three years ago in the second round of the
NCAA Tourney, following the suspension of Brandon Davies.3. BYU dominates
Southern Miss in third round NIT 2013 game, on the road 79-62. THey had not lost
a non-conference road game in a couple years.4. Overtime win against
Kansas State in the NCAA Tourney four years ago.
Such a wonderful article about BYU sports. I proud of the boys for working so
hard to win. Welcome all the visitors from other universities who like to read
our BYU articles and comment so kindly. Their respect for the efforts of our
young men is so appreciated.
@ Chris:You are right about all teams having injuries and being able
to step it up. Being the good team BYU is, they definitely stepped it up after
Kyle went down and actually gained ground on Gonzaga afterwards. They once again
played tough under extra opposition and proved their metal. Too bad you
didn't have the same attitude when Wilson went down with the Ute football
team. You had a "if only..." attitude. Once again, another
one of your predictions will prove to be wrong. And when it does, please make
one of your promises not to post on a BYU related article for a week or longer.
We need a break. BYU will definitely be in the NCAA tournament. Your
all-season-long to the contrary has assured it. What difference does
it make how many teams from the PAC12 (or any other conference) go to the
tournament if your team isn't one of them? Utah hasn't been able to
play in football bowl games and still no basketball NCAA tournament invites.
Hanging onto someone else's coattails (other conference teams) is not
impressive to anyone else whatsoever.
Sorry Chris, but the WCC has had two or three teams the last few years. BYU will
still go dancing. The PAC 12 may get 6 or 7, but Utah won't be one of them.
Maybe next year.
tough for him, but every team has injuries. Good teams have players step up.byu is going to the NIT like I said they would all seasonAnd
the wcc is a one bid league.IN other words, UVU's league is
getting as many invites as the wcc.The Pac 12 and Big 12 are
expected to get 6-7 each
Very tough break for Kyle. Appears that he's done for this season. The
bigger concern is for the long term. His brother Chris was very talented and
had tremendous potential, but his career was plagued (and eventually ended) by
knee and ankle injuries. Here's hoping for a speedy and complete recovery
-- and a long career -- for Kyle. Go Cougs.
