Re: Nick Emery Blogs About His Withdrawing from BYU

Some thoughts: 1) I think the NCAA investigation was the straw that broke the camel's back for Emery. Whether is was a way to skirt repercussions or not, I don't care. By withdrawing, we won't have to hear about it game after game. It won't be a distraction for him or the team. 2) People are nosey ...

I hope he moves on and gets the chance to play for Pope at UVU.
He could do much better than that if he did move on.

Re: Nick Emery Blogs About His Withdrawing from BYU

I hope he moves on and gets the chance to play for Pope at UVU. Pretty sure he pledged in that blog to return to BYU when things settle down. Wasn't considering another school. Depending on how the NCAA investigation goes, BYU might not want him back.... You're quick to assume some wrongdoing here....

All sports vs. the utes in 2017-18

So far this season we lost to the utes in football obviously. We have beaten them in women's basketball, women's volleyball, and tied in women's soccer. I may be missing something, but so far they haven't beaten us in anything except football as far as I can tell, although that is a huge one obvious...

Re: What We've Learned

If BYU wins Saturday they will find a way to get themselves into the NCAA tournament this season just like most other Rose teams have done.

If BYU loses, it will be much harder.

Re: McKay Cannon

BYU's records after 10 games in the other post Jimmer years, before the last two: 2014-2015: 7-3 (made NCAA tournament) 2013-2014: 7-3 (made NCAA tournament) 2012-2013: 7-3 (NIT) 2011-2012: 8-2 (made NCAA tournament) Not sure you can necessarily equate this year so far to the last two seasons and no...

Re: McKay Cannon

Sagarin's "predictor" rating right now would call BYU a 2 point favorite over Utah. We should both win tomorrow, so it shouldn't change much between now and then. If we beat WSU, Utah and then as expected beat Idaho St. and Texas Southern, we'll be already showing up on a good number of the bracket ...

Re: McKay Cannon

I think right now it's hard to make the case that this is the same as last year in that we didn't lose to UVU. And UVU is most likely better than they were last year. It's basically the same team with some added pieces. Neilson who killed us last year isn't even good enough to start for them this ye...

Re: McKay Cannon

My take on Cannon is I'm glad he's there to fill in the vacuum created by the unplanned departure of Emery. I don't know that anyone was expecting what we have seen in the 2 games he's played for the Cougars. Dang it's nice to find a positive surprise around here these days. Getting very solid perf...

Re: McKay Cannon

Harding as some might remember was an ESPN top 100 4* who is a terrific defender and actually has a body. I feel like I've become jaded with "ESPN top 100" players. Seems like we've been getting quite a few top 100 players the past couple years, yet the days when I was confident in us making the to...
