Coach Pope on BYU's early-season stretch without Yoeli Childs: "What these guys accomplished in that stretch not only changed our team, it changed Yoeli. When he jumped on, we had this incredible continuity...we still have a lot of work to do, but it turned out to be a blessing."
Coach Pope on working with, and later following Dave Rose at BYU: "He is a tough act to follow…but I’ve been able to see how extraordinary this place is. In some ways, it’s the best kept secret in college basketball. This is a special place."
As someone who has covered BYU recruiting since 2003, I can attest to the fact that recruiting classes almost never turn out as anticipated. @AJeffreyCall does a great job writing about this in his excellent article while pointing out what TJ has overcome
BYU's 11-game home win streak is the 19th-longest current Div. I streak. BYU's six-game win streak overall is 13th-longest. Of the 12 teams with longer current streaks, BYU has this season faced three of them: SDSU (26), Gonzaga (18), Kansas (11).
TJ truly deserves to be remembered as one of the all-time BYU greats
In a tweet from @InsidetheNCAA, the NCAA is proposing to change the waiver guidelines for the Division 1 student-athlete transfer rules. This would mean that they could compete immediately after transferring one time in their college career. Would this benefit BYU? #BYUSN
