    Default 2018 - 2019 BYU Hoops

    BYU’s Elijah Bryant announces he will turn pro ...

    https://www.sltrib.com/sports/byu-cougars/2018/04/18/byus-elijah-bryant-announces-he-will-turn-pro-forego-his-senior-season-of-eligibility/


    Uhm, can I change my prediction for the ceiling for this team, for next season? A third place finish again I think. Especially, if no one has told Childs the G-league pay raise isn't that great and that he should stay in school and get his degree:

    The second paragraph of the trib article you cite explains that he graduates this week even though he has a year of eligibility left.

    Yeoli Childs has already declared for the draft, though he has not hired an agent. It is still possible Childs returns to BYU. Bryant has now confirmed he's going pro. My gut tells me they are both gone, and it looks like another third place finish for BYU in the WCC.

    Are you talking about Bryant here? Yoeli hasn't graduated yet.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    looks like a good possibility. Don't know if it is a pro decision (overseas obviously) or play for a different university

    It was only 9 days ago that he tweeted that his plan is to come back to play for BYU. That tweet was direct. I wouldn't worry too much about something cryptic.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    The historical low is worse than WCC top 3.

    St Mary's is losing 6 of their top 7 players to graduation and a transfer. I think we do better than 3rd this time. It wouldn't be the first time we finished above third in the WCC even though no one probably remembers that. This will also be the first time in the last five or six years that we're not replacing 7 or 8 players from the previous year. The three RMs coming back were 4* recruits. They could add something. It's going to be ok.

    I think our ceiling is 2 and our floor is 3.

    apparently we're opening the season at Nevada. They were a pretty good team last year. The non-conference schedule is shaping up to allow for a good rpi this year regardless of the WCC schedule. We made the tournament in 2015 and 2014 because our non-conference schedule was tough, especially in 2014. It can be done

    We play 3 teams on the pre-season CBS top 25

    5. Gonzaga, 8. Nevada, 15. Miss State

    Houston should also be pretty good. We have Utah also. And we also renew rivalries with SDSU and UNLV. Add the in-state schools to that and it's a much more interesting non-conference schedule than we've had in a while.

    Emery reinstated. To miss the first 9 games. Birds flutter.

    In other news, UNC not penalized for allowing students to get fake grades in fake classes.

    In the Emery news, no consideration for the withdrawal for the entirety of the season. The NCAA is like FIFA.
