Go cast that recruiting net worldwide. Bring in top talent who will be
relentless in keeping the rules, improving every day on the hardwoods, win
games, and take the Cougars to at least the final four. Coach Pope has a
chance to win a lot of friends and influence a lot of people with his attitude.
You gotta love it......Cougars are on the rise!
Pope's whole attitude was relentless. You could hear it strong in his
voice. He is just what BYU needs most, and I really hope he can inspire this in
our players. First time I heard him speak at length, and I was ready to go
through walls for him... there is no obstacle big enough complete dedication of
self and team cannot overcome. Hard work and perseverance of right principles to
the end and beyond is the key.
While relentless is a good mantra, I worry about priorities and expectations of
success. It’s counterintuitive to think that BYU has employees (coach
Pope) that will spend inordinate amounts of time away from what is really
important, to try and win a game. I see it with Ceo’s of tech companies in
the area. We revere these accomplishments, wins and wealth but ignore the hours,
days, and months spent away from family and more important things. Coach Pope
said he would work 24/7 to build a successful program. As a fan and a supporter
of BYU and the LDS church mission and priorities I would rather you work 9-5 and
go spend time with family, friends and serve in other ways.
Get used to the attitude of only going after players who really want to be in
Relentless. Work ethic. Teamwork. Hates losing. We're talking about a BYU
Even though I am grateful for the wonderful record of the Rose years, I am
looking forward to how "relentless" Pope will work out. Go Cougars!Thanks for the text, which I can read much faster than listening to a
Just having a guy at the top who has won at the highest level should be a big
plus (as it was with Rose); looking forward to Cougar basketball in November.
Hard work, relentlessness, desire, etc., etc., it all sounds good and I hope it
works out but at the end of the day it's all about the W! I hope it works.
I think Coach Pope has an uphill battle given the situation his AD has put this
program in but I hope he can overcome it. Again, it's all about the W.
Mark Pope is SO refreshing. He is just what our BYU basketball players
need.....relentless! I love it! Let's do this! Go Cougs!
