I think this board has a poor understanding of the word ousted. Rose didn't do it to key role players from last year (when we sorely needed them off the bench, and instead had to go get Steven Beo et al). Pope wasn't "ousted" from BYU either. Neither was Rice. They took job opportunities elsewhere when one wasn't available in the here and now or immediate future. And good for them! And good for the UVU players that went to get starters minutes! I wish they all would have stayed, but that didn't happen.
I've never been a huge fan of Nashif. Maybe this move is to pave the way for Rice to come back and be the heir apparent at BYU?
