@pocyuteWhere did you miss the part about Brereton deciding not to go to
UTAH as well...probably a more crucial point since Brereton was without doubt
seeing a sinking ship there with a fired Coach and players jumping ship.
Daaaaaaah what part of that didn't ring any bells.
Eddie spin it how you want. Either way, he didn't want to be at BYU. There are
plenty of BYU fans here declaring players are leaving Utah or not even
considering Utah because Utah is down right now. Maybe that's right, maybe it's
not. My point in mentioning Brereton was only to say there are many reasons why
a player choses to stay or go, and we as fans aren't privy to all those reasons.
It'll be interesting to see how things shake down with coach K and
the Utes. I love the staff he's putting together, and I'm not particularly
disappointed in the known departures (although if O'brien leaves I will be
significantly bummed out). One key player who has already said he is staying is
George Matthews. If O'brien stays, I think the two of them will form a very
@ pocyUteBIG, BIG difference between a player who is already at a
school and is enrolled and someone who is looking for a place to go and play!@ Chris BryantHaving played a little college bball, I can
tell you that all HS players talk to each other and word spreads very quickly
about problem places. NO ONE wants to play at a school where a lot of players
have left over a couple of years, not to mention a change in coaches. That
spells problems and not a place where you want to be, given the stress of
college and practice and all that goes with starting up college life. Just try
to put some logic into the situation. The situation on the hill is a complete
train wreck. u will not get "quality" players for several years. Good
luck with that!
Chris,It sounds like people feel the same way about BYU with Hauns
Eddie,yes, Chris Kupets is leaving the program. Boo hoo. "Many High School kids and JC kids have now scratched off the u as a
place to play. They want no part of the derailed system for their 2 to 4 years
there"can you substantiate this claim with even one name? or
are you just spouting off?Look, its going to take time. But, Larry
K can offer these kids a chance to come in and play right away in the pac-12.
That is going to attract a few kids.
What a train wreck! Rumor has it that another player is looking hard at leaving.
He is talking to other schools to see what offers he gets. Many High School kids
and JC kids have now scratched off the u as a place to play. They want no part
of the derailed system for their 2 to 4 years there.
do we really have to point out the obvious?
SammyFrom what I've heard, Clyburn was out the door as soon as
Boylen got axed. It was something he was seriously considering once Boylen's
job was in serious peril. I've also heard his Juco coach has been in his ear
the whole time. it doesn't make a lot of sense, and ultimately I think will
hurt him in his attempts to make the NBA. As I've said before,
Clyburn leaving doesn't bother me that much. If O'brien ends up leaving, then I
will be very bummed, but Will was only going to be here for one year, and I
don't have very high expectations for next year anyway.
Clearly, winning isn't everything at the U.
SammygProbably because...even though it might be embarassing to admit...
Utah might actually have standards for players to actually live by too. Maybe
winning isn't everything at the U also. Do You think???
"Coach (Fred) Hoiberg hes a great guy, said Clyburn, who said he plans to
take summer school classes at Iowa State. I want to get to the NBA. Im hoping he
can get me there.Anyone care to explain this kid's rationale? I wish
him luck. Winter is very very long and cold in Iowa not playing basketball.
