Glad he is still on the team and hope coach Rose will give him the playing time.
He is way better than Seljass and a much better defender than Haws who seems to
have gotten so selfish in recent games. I intentionally did not watch the game
last night. The Harnett benching and punishment so bugged me I decided to
forego the games for the time being. So inconsistent treatment of players.
It is time for the blue-noses to lay off Emery. He messed up, did his time. Nuff
said.As for Jashire, we all hope he continues to progress. Hang in
I agree with one of the comments about a lack of experienced coaches on the
staff. What is the problem when a top program like BYU can't find
experienced coaches. We lost a very good coach from last year to head coaching
job. Wonder if that is the problem with the defense. Most top Div. I programs
have very experienced coaches! We used to and did for a very long time in the
70's up to few years ago! Don't tell me a former HS coach, Nate
Austin, and Lee Cummard are ready for prime time and it is showing up in very
mediocre performance. We could say the same thing about BYU football! Pay up
BYU! get some good experienced coaches for our programs and return us to the
glory days! Let those young coaches get their feet wet at UVU or other small
colleges! Alum 1976
Hardnett and Rose's relationship is troubled in that Rose loves Emery and
Emery is allowed to have tirades while Hardnett isn't allowed the same
privilege. Hardnett gets a technical while jawing at a MSSt player. He is
benched for all but 5 minutes of the next game and BYU gets embarrassed by a
rebuilding St Mary's team who penetrates, at will, to the bucket against
Haws, Emery and Co. Emery had a more egregious technical foul in the same MS
St game, which is just one technical foul of many for Emery's career ......
vs just 1 for Hardnett ...... and Emery isn't benched or even has his
playing time decreased. Emery is rewarded for his bad behavior by increasing
his playing time! Rose is getting touchy about the media and their knowledge of
the situation. He knows he is on the hot seat and losing Hardnett may be the
nail in his coffin. Frankly, I will be amazed if this Rose/Hardnett
relationship lasts the remaining part of the year. Hardnett has no problem
calling Rose on the carpet for inconsistent rules and favorites and .......
those 2 issues are trademarks of Rose. All this dust-up does is distract from a
bad bb team/coach!
Good news. I can hear a sigh of relief from here in California. Jashire is
important to the team in a number of ways. As far as assembling the final game
plan not long before the game, I say "of course." Coaches finalize the
plan based on the absolute latest info about personnel. I imagine that Jashire
will be well received when he checks into the game tonight. Funny how rumors
started on social media can so easily be impeached.
Hardnett is the best defender that the Y has. Not playing him is head
scratching at the least. It seems like this year Rose has a definite disconnect
between him and the players. Frankly I'd rather see Hardnett playing than
Emery.Rose needs to look at some good instate players for the future
that don't play at lone Peak. That kid from Copper Hills would be a great
player for Rose to recruit. But he hasn't been looked at by in state
"“We’ve got a really good relationship as far as understanding
each other. I know exactly what he wants and he knows exactly what I want.
We’re both committed to the same thing. I’m looking forward to
moving on.”They are both committed to the same thing and Coach
is looking forward to "moving on". Does this mean Hardnett will get
more than 5 minutes of playing time? Or will Hardnett be left on the bench. We
will see what coach meant tonight about looking forward to moving on.
It must be hard to be under the microscope of the media, speculation, and rumor
all the time. Just win games, and that will take care of a lot of this. We need
some more seasoned assistant coaches on this team in my estimation. We've
certainly got the talent!Go BYU!
Glad that Hardnett is back. However, I feel confident that if you gave all of
the other conference coaches a choice between having Emery or Hatdnett on their
team, it would unanimously be Emery. Let's see how it plays out the rest
of the season.
As long as Coach Rose is still trying to figure out a rotation midway through
the season, he might try replacing Haws with Hardnett as a primary ball-handler.
I think that a big part of BYU's problem is too much Haws and not enough
team, but I could be wrong.
Oh how we like to be optimistic for our Cougars! Reality, if the team turns it
around, surprises us with a strong season finish that would be great, but if
not, the future of Coach Rose must be evaluated at end of season. Go Cougs!
A day before the game and the final game plan hasn’t been put together?
Interesting and troubling.
So glad Hardnett is back. Looking forward to when Emery is gone.
Glad Hardnett is coming back and hope he stays next year. He should start with
Emery off the bench.
"But I think we’ve had another great week of practice and I think
we’re coming together and we’re ready to fight.”Still coming together? Really need to do that earlier in the season.
Regardless, I would be happy just to see improvement from week to week. Go
Great news; I’m glad that things are looking up and hope this is a sign if
great things to come.There’s still time to make this a pretty
