Thanks for the update on Kyle's progress. This will be a great season with
Elite 8 talent.
I really can't stand it when players run their mouths about "we're
going to the elite 8" or "We're going to win a national
championship". Those are great goals to discuss behind closed doors, not to
the media. Let your play do the talking so when you lose to San Diego at home
for some strange reason, you don't look like a fool. Then, IF you make it
to the elite 8, you won't need to say "See, I said this a long time
ago." Everyone else will do that for you.
NICE! Good to see he's recovering and will be back. This team is going to
"make some noise".
cougarsundevil,,Just another typical byu fan/player doing a whole
lot more talking than walking, as the saying goes!
Chris BSalt Lake City, UTcougarsundevil,,"Just
another [XXXXXXX] byu fan/player doing a whole lot more talking than walking, as
the saying goes!"For once I can mostly agree [after deleting
"typical"] with Chris B. Probably the first time and likely the last.
Chris B,"Just another typical byu fan/player doing a whole lot
more talking than walking, as the saying goes!" Yeah, you should
know all about it since you keep saying Utah is going to win the Rose Bowl.
His new haircut looks good I think. A very sharp looking young man. I do not
think they will go to the Elite 8 with no true center, but I think we are in for
a positive season. If all of these 6'10" freshman pan out, we could be
in for a nice couple of years.
cougarsundevil,Making this up again huh? I think Utah
is going to go 7-5 this year and go to the best bowl of anyone in the state.
A few weeks ago he made an incoherent comment about foregoing his senior season
if the NBA comes calling early. Now he's playing postseason
prognosticator, calling for an Elite-8 finish. From quiet, hardworking, blue
collar worker to ... hmm ... please, not another prima donna, we barely got rid
of the king of prima donnas just a few short months ago.Without
doubt this kid can play, but I'd really like to see him just concentrate on
the rehab, learn to shoot a 15 foot jumper and bag a few free throws
consistently, and otherwise clam up for a while. He fell on his knee, not his
head, but I'd be hard pressed to know that from his comments over the last
few weeks.I don't think he realizes that it's going be a
grind with a new front line this year, and, both individually and collectively,
they're a long way from being a solid ball team at the moment. And the
team needs his toughness and leadership on the floor in November, not his mouth
in the newspapers in August. Hopefully this is a momentary aberration, and not
the beginning of some new and undesirable trend.
I don't see a problem with setting the bar high and voicing you goal.Good luck Cougars!
Chris B"I think Utah is going to go 7-5 ..."Nothing but wishful thinking.I'll bet you don't have a
clue which 7 teams you think the Utes have a chance of beating.
