BYU men's volleyball sweeps USC

Despite many questions lingering for the cougars going into the MPSF tournament, the Cougars put doubt aside and brought their A-game against USC. Going in the the first round of the MPSF tournament, BYU had lost four in a row, the first time since 2007, and their starting setter had a sprained ankle.  The Cougars had looked shaky and nobody knew for sure what to expect Saturday night as they hosted the USC Trojans.  However, after a 5-0 start in the first set, anybody watching could tell, the Cougars were ready to bring it. Robbie Sutton hadn't started a game all season, only playing...

Men's Volleyball: Chasing a National Title

After riding high through most of the season, BYU Men's Volleyball stumbled down the stretch and is looking for redemption in the postseason.

My top 5 Coaches that won't, but should make the Cougars short list.

Could this be the Cougars head coaching short list? Yes! But only in my dreams. In the off-season one's mind tends to wonder. Spring ball is over, recruits have been signed, and there are still over four and a half months left until kickoff. So what does one do with all that time? You daydream of course! Whose going to start where, and what kind of production can we expect from the offense next year, and whose going to replace Van Noy and Hadley on defense. That kind of stuff. Or if you've already done all that you can make a list of your Top 5 Dream Coaches. That's what I did. Realizing...

What Jordan Chatman brings to the 2014-15 BYU Basketbal Team

Without a distinct point guard for next year solidified here's a look at what 2nd generation Cougar, Jordan Chatman could bring to the court for BYU.

Is #Hawsteria coming for BYU Basketball?

Every player's best season should be his last. Tyler Haws has set fan expectations high for his season and fans expect him to deliver. Will Provo and the Marriott Center be thrown into another monomania for Haws senior season? Is Hawsteria on its way? Jimmer Fredette was a truly transcendent college basketball player. As an underclassman he gave us glimpses of what his potential was, but the college basketball world truly had no idea how big he would become as a senior. He had a great moniker, Jimmer, which by the end of his career as a Cougar had gone from just a noun to a verb, adverb,...

BYU Softball: Are the Cougars peaking at the right time?

A disappointing start against stiff competition has lead to a losing record on the year. But with a winning record in conference, the Cougars are looking to peak at the right time and head back to the NCAA Tournament for a 10th consecutive year. After nine straight NCAA Softball Tournament appearances, the BYU softball team could be on the verge of breaking the streak and sitting home for the post season. With no conference tournament for the WCC, winning the regular season outright is the only way to make it 10 years in a row. The Cougars knew before the season that their inexperience...

2014 BYU Football Recruting: 5 Players You're Probably Overlooking

With the 2014 recruiting class officially on the books it's time for the speculation to begin. And by speculation I mean guessing. After all no one knows for sure how a recruiting class is going to to turn out. That's what makes recruiting such an interesting, and sometimes frustrating, part of college football . At the end of the day some recruits pan out and others don't. It's as simple as that.Now having said that I'll also say this. There is something to the various ranking systems. It's not a total crap shoot. After all the teams that tend to compete for BCS berths and National Titles...

In a season of rebuilding, Cougar baseball has seen highs and lows.

Highs and lows are a part of the game, what the Cougars learn will determine their success. After coming just a few games short of the NCAA Baseball Tournament last year, the Cougars expected to take a few punches in the 2014 campaign. With a rookie head coach the cougars exceeded expectations last year with a 32-21 record, an unexpected second place regular season finish in the WCC, and a bid to the WCC baseball tournament. The program looked to be flying high and the future looked bright. It was the coming of the MLB draft that brought the Cougars back to reality. Four Cougars starters...

BYU's two biggest weaknesses heading into Summer/Fall Camp

Spring football is essentially over, but it doesn't mean BYU fans won't be discussing the state of the BYU football program.

Top 10 Favorite BYU Sports Moments (Part 2)

Top 10 Favorite BYU Sports Moments (Part 2)

The numbers get smaller and the moments get bigger. Here is the top half of my top 10  favorite BYU sports moments. #5 BYU Upsets Oklahoma Some moments are incredible when they happen and then not so incredible as time goes by. This moment was special for a lot of different reasons and it's stayed in my top 5 even though the awesomeness was somewhat diminished a couple weeks later when Florida State showed BYU just how far it still had to go. I am not a fan of Oklahoma. In fact I hate them. Ironically it was my love of Texas Tech and not BYU that first got me started. During the fall of...

The Carlino Conundrum: What his departure means for the Cougars

Matt Carlino's announced transfer from BYU came as big surprise to BYU fans. It now has Cougar loyal divided on what he meant to the program and what his departure means going forward. It's funny watching the fan fallout on comment boards in the aftermath of the announcement that Matt Carlino will be graduating and transferring to another school for his senior season because the results could not be more varied. On one extreme, people are lamenting the loss of Carlino and saying that it is a comment on the state of a program in drastic decline and Dave Rose needs to get his act together;...

Top 10 Favorite BYU Sports Moments (Part 1)

With the basketball season officially over and the football season still months away from kickoff I thought it might be a good time for us all to remember why we love BYU sports so much in the first place.

But sometimes you just need a little something something to get you through the long dark days otherwise known as the off-season. So without further delay here are the first 5 of my top 10 favorite BYU sports moments of all time... #10 The 1997 Cotton Bowl Being all of...

Heartbreak in Provo: Matt Carlino to Transfer

The inconsistent but exciting "Matty Basketball" has decided to transfer after an early graduation in June. In what wasn’t a cruel April Fool’s joke, Matt Carlino, affectionately called ‘Matty Basketball’ has decided to transfer from BYU. Fans of the team loved to see Carlino’s passing, defensive savvy, and streaky 3-point shooting. Fans also remember the turnovers and the lengthy cold streaks from behind the 3-point line. I developed a type of love/hate relationship from watching him play. I defended him in front of my friends with lines like, "I know that right now he’s missed...
