    Been watching the games and it has been strange. You can tell he is doing exactly what the Coaches want him to do, stand in the corner for a kick out and then crash the boards. But that isn't his strength. He moves so well without the ball to get open and shoot, but when you have a team that is only been together for a week and runs very few actual plays, it is obvious others have been told to drive the lane. Great talent on the team and unstoppable if they had a month to prepare and practice together.

    Too bad. Tyler is a great player. He could do more.

    I just don't want him to get hurt. BYU needs him next year, healthy and ready to go.

    Life outside the WCC sure seems tough

    How did BYU miss out on getting at least one of the Bachynski brothers? The one that plays for ASU is a beast!

    Like most people who take advantage of the weak, vulnerable, and lascivious, I'll probably hate myself in the morning, but Chris is right--life has been tough for Tyler outside the WCC. He only scored 23 points with 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks against Florida State. Against Notre Dame, all he could muster was a measily 24 points to go along with 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. Then there was his 42-point debacle against V-Tech, 14 against the U (which would have led U scorers), 37 against Washington, and 25 against Baylor. Tough indeed! C'mon, Chris! Go strong or go home!
