BYU football: Notes and quotes from first spring camp practice

Winter has finally arrived on the Wasatch Front, which means the BYU Cougars practiced in the Indoor Practice Facility on Monday as 2015 spring camp got underway in Provo. My initial report, that the word discipline will be uttered a time or two, or more, in the next four weeks at camp, can be found here.

BYU football: Cougs will work on their D -- as in discipline -- during spring practice

Provo • The first word that BYU football coach Bronco Mendenhall wrote on the whiteboard when the Cougars met Monday before the first practice of 2015 spring camp wasn't execution, effort or anything about a quest for perfection. It was discipline. "He hit that pretty hard," said receiver Mitch Mathews. Call it the most visible fallout, so far, from the brawl that occurred after...

BYU basketball: Collinsworth honored by WCC, Cougs get some poll votes

Only two players were nominated for the West Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week award after last week’s action, perhaps a sign that everybody knew BYU’s Kyle Collinsworth pretty much had it wrapped up. Collinsworth was named the WCC’s PoW for the fourth time this season on Monday after leading the Cougars to wins over Portland and Gonzaga. The only other...

Former BYU Star WR Alleges He Was Kicked Out Of Team’s Locker Room

BYU basketball: Cougars got defensive in big upset of No. 3 Zags

Provo • The bubble-sitting BYU Cougars have apparently grown tired of hearing people say and write that they don't play defense. Sure, Kyle Collinsworth had 20 points, eight rebounds and three assists and Skyler Halford and Chase Fischer combined for 27 points, but the biggest reason high-scoring BYU was able to upset No. 3 Gonzaga on its home court Saturday night was the Cougars...

BYU basketball: Gonzaga gets rare home-court advantage against Cougars

Spokane, Wash. • In Thursday’s 82-69 win at Portland, more than half the crowd of 3,500 were cheering for the BYU Cougars. It was a different scene at the McCarthey Athletic Center on Saturday night, where there were fewer than 200 BYU fans in the sellout crowd of 6,000. The Kennel, as Gonzaga’s midsize arena is called, is the only venue in the WCC where BYU fans don’t...

BYU should stick with four guard lineup

Right before the Utah game, Cougar center Nate Austin tore his hamstring. The move left coach Dave Rose scrambling. He decided to put a few unproven big guys in the game. While the big men played hard, the Cougars suffered through one of their worst offensive showings of the season. The Cougars played better overall against Gonzaga but something was still missing. The switch to a...

The Lions finally made some sort of splash on the second day of the NFL Draft trading up to the 40th pick with the Seahawks to take OLB Kyle Van Noy out of Brigham Young University. Van Noy offers tremendous versatility for the Lions as he’s able to play near the line of scrimmage, rush the quarterback off the edges and be a guy that can drop back into pass coverage. Bottom line...
