    Methinks BYU brings it this year. Glad to see Mark Pope at the helm. The game in Provo this year could be the WCC Gem of the Year. Or, maybe a bit later, the WCC Championship Showdown could be the gem.

    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    Oh good, another year of hyping up BYU in the preseason. Here's my bold prediction--First Four, and eliminated before actually getting to the Round of 64. Just like every year. Wash, rinse, repeat. Wake me up if it ever changes.

    There seem to be two narratives every year, and both can be bona fide. But I agree that on objective measures of hanging banners, BYU hasn't hung a single one since joining the WCC, unless you count "Tournament Appearance." BYU hasn't won a regular season title, or WCC title, or any meaningful NCAA game. It's biggest wins are the occasional "we beat Gonzaga" games, and as much as an accomplishment as it feels like, you can't hang that banner.

    Compliments to having a dedicated fanbase an bringing great resources to the conference. That is nothing to ignore.

    Pope is 44-15 in his two years with KenPom finishes of 13 and 20. 6 seed last year who ended up playing a pretty decent UCLA team that GU struggled to beat. Was also predicted to have a 5 seed 2 years ago when the tourney was cancelled. I think there has definitely been improvement since he took over.

    I have very mixed feelings about Pope. I know he will encourage a style of play that is tougher than what we will see from the rest of the conference but I believe he will also encourage his players to act like thugs when they can get away with it. No evidence for this but the worst years for Dave Rose teams playing with gorilla tactics were those years when he had Pope as his assistant. I don’t mind hard physical games but I don’t want to see the cheap shot Kafusi years returning to BYU. I hope I’m wrong.

    tactics like Emory looking down at the face of a foe and with closed fist hitting foes head as hard as he could? ...

    It is well known that he is a troubled person recovering from personal demons. I can't explain the rest of the program's pedigree of violence across football and basketball.

    Well known felons should not be on a basketball court or turned loose by a decent
    Coach if player is violent. For any reason.
