Funny, but with BYU basketball needing inside help, I was actually thinking last
week if there were any football players who could help out as a substiture for
davies etc. Looks like they might find someone. Better not blow out a knew
If Kaufusi is 1/2 as good at defense on the court as he is on the field,
I'll take him. If Davies and Austin stay out of foul trouble, we should be
good with our current line-up. But Davies sometimes gets into foul trouble and
Austin always gets into foul trouble. There are question marks with each of
their replacements. Sharp will be good on offense and against smaller teams,
but could struggle against the Zags with two bigs. Agustin is still question
mark for me. I don't know what he's capable of. Harward has
potential, but lacks experience.How can chris b talk smack this
year. Her football team will not make it to a bowl game, and her basketball
team will not have 10 wins. I guess U have to define yourself by your
conference, when U don't have much of a team.
Chris B - Now that the football season, for all intents and
purposes, is over for your little boys on the hill, do you have any predictions
for the basketball season in terms of what the sorry utes will accomplish in
your new powerhouse conference?? The December 8 game against the BYU Cougars
(top 25) should be a nice warm up in Provo for you against a quality team - any
predictions?BTW - that was a real battle between two cream puffs
last Saturday, wasn't it?
I think these are new and good alternatives for Kaufusi in BYU and I'm sure
will be of great benefit not only for him but also for the team. Dave Rose is a
great coach and knows his stuff.
Go Bronson and take Remington Peck as well. Two D-ends and two Power forwards.
Bronco's seeming reticence and lack of apparent positivity regarding
Kaufusi's dual sport considerations further cause this Cougar fan's
raised eyebrows towards its head football coach. I don't judge him...I
just don't like him and would like to see him move on.
"It's no secret that the University of Idaho doesn't present much
of a challenge on paper, but Mendenhall, as always, is not taking the Vandals
lightly."Unlike Whittingham, who thinks that the only thing the
Utes need to do is show up to beat teams like Colorado, UNLV, New Mexico,
Wyoming, and Colorado State.---------Chris BUnfortunately for U, the Utes never did much fighting for the WAC title when
they were in the conference, and even as members of a "big boy"
conference, still aren't capable of fighting for a WAC title - 0-1 in the
WAC this year.btw, by adding BYU, the WCC became a three-bid league,
unlike the rundown Utes who contributed absolutely nothing to the PAC except
pull down the RPI of the entire conference.As for "powerhouse
conferences", the WCC placed THREE teams in the NCAA's last season, the
PAC only TWO.
I don't imagine that Coach Rose is looking for Kaufusi to start or even
play significant minutes as a backup; with the loss of Rogers and Collinsworth,
what Rose needs is another big body to spell BYU's front court starters,
clog the middle, get a few rebounds, and maybe score a basket or two once in
You mean fighting for a WAC championship isn't enough?He wants
to fight for a WCC title too?Powerhouse programs. Powerhouse
Steps to getting ready for Idaho 1 eat the soup, step 2 show up in uniform.
It's SILLY SEASON!
Bring Ziggy along as well.
