I can't see how that game against UTA, getting swept convincingly by St
Mary's, and some of the other bad losses this season will help our
recruiting. If I were a recruit that had watched BYU's season I'd be
thinking their coaches sure don't do a very good job so I'll pick
another school. It's an absolute miracle that we were able to win at
Gonzaga with this team and coaching staff. But like they say, even a blind
squirrel occasionally finds a nut, even a broken clock is still right twice a
day, etc. I just hope Yoeli Childs doesn't decide to transfer out.
He's very good and is going to get even better.
Agree with Bomar and others. Without a strong defensive effort every game the
team does not improve. Turnovers must've greatly reduced. And why the big
hurry to get of a 3 point shot with 24 seconds left on the shot clock and no one
underneath? Always go inside first. These are all correctable issues a coach
can address, if he will.
Recruiting, Recruiting, Recruiting, some big muscle.
This team has lost its way. The UTA game was an indicator that there has been
no improvement since the opening game of the season with a few exceptions. The
responsibility lies with Coach Rose and his staff. To listen to Coach
Rose's post game comments is all we need to know that he has lost his
enthusiasm and new ideas are needed. If Rose stays on he needs to clean house
and replace his staff, they are stale and obviously have no clue on coaching
basic defense and ball handling skills as evidenced by the seasons results.
soft soft soft in the middle. Have been all year.I would not pay
money to watch this team.
Rose has never believed in defense. Not with young teams, not with veteran
teams. The worst thing that could have happened to TJ Haws was to vote him into
the WCC first team, kind of rewarding a kid that shoots first, does not include
the rest of the team, and zero defense....just like his brother.
They certainly will not with dave rose coaching ......
It does seem that the team has improved. In fact, it seems clear that except
for Bryant's good week when they peaked for a short time, they have
regressed.Some of the problem has been the absence of Kyle Davis.
But the Cougars' were plainly awful against UT - Arllngton defensively and
gave away the game with ridiculous turnovers.Two UT - Arlington
players had CAREER NIGHTS!!!!!!! Two of them!!!!!I do not see this
group getting better. I had hoped Quincy Lewis would have made a difference
with the defensive sets -- but UT - Arlington was constantly at the rim making
lay-ups and embarrassed BYU with the pick and roll or pick and pop.BYU has not been good at guarding the three-point line in a long time and I am
distressed at their "Matador Defense."HELP . . . . . may
come when the team decides it wants to play defense. Until then, I do not enjoy
watching the Cougars play like they did the past two games.
Definitely not. Did you see how they played tonight? BYU will be lucky to make
the NIT next year. They will not make any waves in the basketball world until
they decide to show up and play defense every game. Which will not
happen as long as Dave Rose is the coach. Prove me wrong, cougs. I
would love to see it.
BYU is not a young team, Age wise its pretty mature team. Kinda sad that LP3
peaked in high school. Not to much to be optimistic for.
