Re: White smoke seen coming from the Marriott Center - Pope named

I really started to have my heart set on Madsen, but I also think Pope will do a great job.

HC Pope
AC Madsen
AC Peery

Re: Final Four Candidates

I'm beginning to wonder if the two Marks are outside of BYU's price range right now. Barrett Peery as the affordable choice? ... I see Tim Capstraw (Brooklyn Nets Radio Analyst) saying we ought to hire Lewis as well. Not sure where he had exposure to Quincy, but he must have. https://www.sltrib.com...

Re: If "Ah, that's nice" meant this is our coach

BTW, I just heard that Sister Lisa Harkness is giving the closing prayer in the afternoon session. I wonder if she is related to Hannah Harkness Madsen. Perhaps sisters?

Re: If "Ah, that's nice" meant this is our coach

I'd have to see the schedule before making a prediction on wins and losses. I've come to believe that 20 wins is the floor. Not only because Dave Rose did such a great job as a coach when BYU was in the MWC, but also because there are enough patsies in the WCC that even a disinterested coach should ...

Re: Jake Toolson = All-American. Yoeli not.

My understanding was that it was anxiety issues, not depression, that led to the "medical leave of absence" his sophomore year. Toolson had an odd history -- he accepted a scholarship offer for after his mission, but ended up not serving--same anxiety issues. BYU didn't have any open scholarship sp...

BB Coach Kevin Young in action

Insofar as a postgame locker talk during the NBA summer league is "in action." Still, I just wanted to know what he looks like:

Re: Basketball Transfers - A Deeper Look

Who left to where, and how did they contribute? Harrison, Carlino, Chatman,and Toolson were major contributors on their new teams, iirc. I don't know about those that left from the other teams you've listed. In addition, who were the replacements? Chatman for Bergeson ( or cannon, et al), for exampl...

Re: AAC, ESPN Agree To 12-Year Media-Rights Deal Worth $1B

Several months ago I wrote that BYU should join the AAC if the AAC would accept us. I no longer think they would accept us, but I'll paste my previous reasons below: 1. I've been a proponent of independence because of the ESPN contract, the perceived "better than G5" status, better exposure, and BYU...
