(see Utah).College Hall's of Fame are built on "The
Past".Compare BYU's "Legacy Hall" to Utah's
"Attainment Closet" for a reality check.
@Frankenstateute"Maybe one of these centuries the Cougars can
actually have a former player in the NBA."*******I'm no
mathematician but I recall that in the 1st or 2nd grade I learned that
"century" meant 100 years... If I just go back 50 or 60 years I come up
with the following list of BYU players who played in the NBA:Jimmer
FredetteShawn BradleyMichael SmithGreg KiteCraig
RaymondMel HutchinsDanny AingeRafael Araujou(and
that's jsut the first rounders... But there are a lot more:Brandon DaviesAndy ToolsonTravis HansenDick NemelkaDevin DurrantPaul RuffnerBernie FryerJohn FairchildSteve KramerJeff CongdonBrady WalkerFred RobertsJim
EakinsOf these there are 2 Wooden Award Winners (D-1 College Player
of the Year):Danny Ainge Jimmer FredetteThere have
been 5 BYU players that have played in a NBA Finals series:John
Fairchild with the LakersFred Roberts and Greg Kite with the CelticsDanny Ainge with the Celtics, the Suns, and the Trailblazers.Mel
Hutchins with the CelticsHow many ute players have been 1st
rounders, or Wooden Award Winners, or been in an NBA Final Series?Homework can do much for credibility... Try it, you might like it.
Good for Taysom. Just making an active roster is great considering all of his
past injuries. Any additional success he may have in the pros is gravy. Good
luck and stay healthy.
I am sure the writer checked his story for spelling and punctuation errors. Too
bad the headline writer didn't do a hyperbole check on what s/he
@jpc53That's a false correlation, buddy. One of the logical
fallacies.I honestly don't care if he is the quarterback of the
future, TE of the future, DB, or anything else. I just think it's fun to
watch Hill play in the NFL. Even if that's only on special teams.BTW, I don't think Troy Aikman is one to make things up. If he said Hill
was the quarterback of the future, he probably had a reason for it. Coaches like
the be tight lipped about that sort of thing. Though I doubt Peyton is going to
ordain anyone to be his next quarterback. He's going to make them earn it
on the field, just like he said.
If the Saints thought he was the QB of the future, he certainly wouldn't be
playing on special teams.
@Former BYU basketball star Kyle Collinsworth had an impressive Sunday for the
Texas Legends with 12 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three steals.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Maybe one of these centuries the
Cougars can actually have a former player in the NBA.
eek, The former Cougar's performances were 72 hours ago and the past bowl
reflections are from a current NCAA.com article about top bowl games in
history.With the little red engine that could having precious little
historical legacy to refer to, and no mention in any "best of" articles
we take the moral victory of a 6-7 season and another 5th place finish in the 6
team P12 south and make an irrelevant comment on a DesNews article referencing
current events and ncaa.com bowl season reflections.
With the future in doubt...we turn to the past. go cougs.
