I think what McGown is trying to say is that he, and the team, have not
recovered from NCAA Championship loss, and that is why they are struggling in
the early season.I would really like to see how these new Europeans
on the team do. Have they been playing much?
idabluWhat McGown is really saying, as he explained in the Cougar
Club luncheon this week, is that BYU is still struggling to find adequate
replacements for some of his most dynamic players from last season, including
Ben Patch, whose size and ability were nearly irreplaceable by a single player.
Anytime you get into a championship game and come away empty is extremely
devastating not only to the coach and players but also to the fans. I hope
the team can rebound back and do well but I'm not optimistic that they can
duplicate last year's success without Ben. I'll be pleasantly
surprised if they do. Curious to see how the two European kids will help
