Re: Congrats to Gonzaga

Good for the Zags, and really for the league, as mentioned with the number of NCAA shares earned. I think there was a little fear among some BYU internet fans that Gonzaga being our one big win was going to go out there and flop in the tournament. Obviously that didn't happen. St. Mary's actually pe...

Re: Rose: realigning expectations

Utah would have been good enough to go a few rounds in the NCAAs this year had they not lost so many players, IMO.

Gonzaga is now one win away against a 11 seeded team from getting to the Final Four.

Re: Eric Mika declares for NBA draft

But, isn't there a ton of risk in assuming that next year will see a big improvement for BYU basketball? Probably less risk in going for the NBA now...if it doesn't work out, getting paid decent money to play basketball and live in Europe with your wife, especially near their mission area, isn't a ...

Re: Rose: realigning expectations

It's amazing that other teams like Saint Mary's are able to maintain their benches for the most part year-to-year but BYU can't. Even teams I'm more familiar with like Utah or Utah State will lose a guy here or there, but nothing like the turnover BYU seems to experience every single year. There ha...

Re: Eric Mika declares for NBA draft

Let me preface this by saying that I hope Mika returns. That being said, if I were in this situation and I were given assurances by 3 or 4 teams that they would take me in the 2nd round I would take that and enter the draft. Yes, it means the money/contract isn't guaranteed, but Mika will be the sa...

Re: Eric Mika declares for NBA draft

This silly process just reminds me how much I hate the NCAA's insistence on preserving their notion of amateurism. "Gasp, Don't hire an agent otherwise you can never come back and play for your school!!!!" If the NCAA was serious about working for the best interests of their athletes they...

Re: Eric Mika declares for NBA draft

Mika, like Plaisted has believed his own press and is over estimating his value in the NBA. That isn't why Plaisted left. He was already graduating even though he had a year left of playing eligibility. Remember, he redshirted as a freshman five games into it after getting injured. Why come back to...
