BRIGHAM YOUNG RUMORS

BYU bounced out of NCAA Tournament with 87-68 loss to Oregon

Matt Carlino was heating up, open 3-point shots that rattled out in the first half were beginning to fall, and the mostly red-clad crowd of 17,749 at the Bradley Center was on its feet, urging the upset-minded BYU Cougars to complete their comeback from an early 14-point deficit. BYU was within three points, remarkably, given the way the Cougars were shooting and defending. Then...

Disrespected Cougars eager to show they belong

Even before their name was called on Selection Sunday as a better-than-anyone-expected No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament’s West Regional, the BYU Cougars were hearing and reading about their bid unworthiness from national college basketball experts. You don’t belong. You shouldn’t be dancing. You don’t pass the eye test. You can’t compete without your best overall...

NCAA rematch with Ducks doesn’t bother Cougs

Mostly because of its no-play-on-Sunday policy, BYU always seems to create bracketing headaches for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament selection committee. Matters were complicated even more this year when the Cougars’ second-leading scorer, point guard Kyle Collinsworth, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the West Coast Conference championship game, although that didn’t...

BYU’s overtime win enough to land Cougars in NCAA tourney

San Francisco’s last shot bounced off the rim, and the BYU Cougars celebrated as if they had won something important Monday night. Unofficially, that’s true. For the moment, all their 79-77 overtime victory earned them was the right to meet Gonzaga for the West Coast Conference tournament title — only 19 hours later at the Orleans Arena. But when Selection Sunday arrives...

BYU Basketball: Live with it, Carlino fans–Collinsworth is more important

Aside from the unstoppable Tyler Haws, Kyle Collinsworth is the most important player on this BYU basketball squad. Hands down. Bar none. No doubt about it. Tonight’s game proved that. Yes, even more important that Matt Carlino. Carlino’s impressive run to finish the regular season (and some pressure from Twitter icon and Carlino idolizer @PostJimmer) had me thinking maybe...

BYU Basketball Stats: Defense, not free throws, Cougars’ real problem

It’s time to shut up about the horrible free throw shooting of the BYU basketball team. Believe me, we here at the Sports Bros, like all BYU basketball fans, have lamented the Cougars’ pathetic efforts from the charity stripe. But it’s time to start putting the blame where it really belongs: the defense. To all who have watched the Cougars play this season, it is no revelation...

BYU QB Hill runs past Young, Doman, and Carter; should Staley be worried?

Brigham Young Cougars quarterback Taysom Hill ran for 165 yards against the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders on Friday night. That gave him 565 yards on the ground this season, and made him the most prolific quarterback, on the ground, in BYU history. That, however, may be just the beginning. Hill is on pace to do something much, much bigger this year. With 400 yards rushing...

BYU coaches fortunate that Lark is a senior

For the better part of three seasons, the quarterback position has been unsettled for the Brigham Young Cougars. Quarterback play has often been inconsistent, which caused Bronco Mendenhall and the BYU offensive coaching staff to face a lot of heat from fans and in the media. These problems are expected to end next year with Taysom Hill as the heir apparent to the quarterback position...

After four consecutive 10-win seasons from 2006-09, the Brigham Young Cougars have won just 24 games the last three seasons. During the last three seasons, BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall has made several decisions that have caused some fans to question him, and even put him on the proverbial hot seat.
