I've heard that BYU is flirting with going positionless for some sets this year.

He is listed at 250 pounds so he's only 210 now?

Last season we had too many bigs. Complete opposite now. I'm curious as to how this season will go.

I think it is cool that BYU is not avoiding local teams in basketball--like other teams in-state sometimes do:

WED, Nov 1 Westminster
WED, Nov 29 @ Utah Valley
SAT, Dec 2 @ Utah State
SAT, Dec 9 Weber State (Vivint Smart Home Arena)
SAT, Dec 16 Utah
THU, Dec 21 Idaho State
