Cougar offense has no fear in facing vaunted Badger 'D'

Posted Nov 6th - 10:55am by Jason Ludlow, KSL.com Contributor

The Cougars have been on a roll of late -- on several rolls, actually.

After a slow start to the season, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill found his arm and transformed into a true dual-threat quarterback, ranking No. 6 in the country with an average of 357.5 yards per game of total offense.

Receiver Cody Hoffman is rewriting the BYU record books on a weekly basis. The senior sensation already set new marks for touchdown grabs and total receptions in a career and stands a mere 14 yards away from capturing the title of most receiving yards in a career, too.


Cougars face 'slow and steady' Badgers

Posted Nov 4th - 10:34pm by Greg Wrubell

Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen was in the mid-90s a high school coach in Park City, out of the college game--until he got a phone call from Bronco Mendenhall, then the co-defensive coordinator at Northern Arizona.

Mendenhall needed a defensive line coach, and he called Andersen, who accepted the post and later became an assistant head coach with the Lumberjacks, before moving on to the University of Utah as an assistant. A long stint with the Utes (as defensive line coach and DC), and a pit-stop at Southern Utah (as head coach) led eventually to the head post at Utah State, where he served for four seasons before taking the Wisconsin job last December.

On Monday in Madison, Andersen said that at the time Mendenhall reached out, "I had really nowhere to go. I didn't have an ‘in' in college football at that point. I was hoping I could get back in at some point."


BYU readies for exhibition finale

Posted Nov 1st - 6:43pm by Greg Wrubell

BYU closes out its two-game exhibition slate Saturday night at the Marriott Center, hosting Division II foe Alaska-Anchorage--a team with some strong ties to Utah, coached by a guy with whom Dave Rose once wanted to work.

The Seawolves feature three LDS returned missionaries, two of whom played their high school ball in the Beehive State; one of those players (Brad Mears from Bingham HS) went on to play at Snow College, where he was a teammate of Seawolves guard Teancum Stafford--whose sister Behka was a BYU basketball star in the 1990s.

UAA head coach Rusty Osborne was, like Rose, a product of the Houston, Texas high school system.


BYU's Falslev, Jorgensen sidelined by surgeries

Posted Oct 31st - 9:17pm by Greg Wrubell

Surgeries will sideline a pair of senior stalwarts on the BYU football team.

The school announced Thursday that receiver/punt returner JD Falslev will be out for up to a month after surgery to repair a broken hand, while linebacker Austen Jorgensen is scheduled for a season-ending procedure to repair damaged knee cartilage.

Falslev suffered the injury while participating in a mid-bye week team activity at a Provo indoor entertainment center; Jorgensen's injury is a cumulative-effect situation and not related to any one particular incident.


Kings decline contract option on Jimmer

Posted Oct 31st - 4:10pm by Jason Shepherd

SACRAMENTO, CA — Former BYU All-American Jimmer Fredette was informed on Thursday that the Sacramento Kings would not pick up the fourth-year option on his contract.

If Fredette's option had been picked up, it would have paid him 3.1 million dollars for the 2014-2015 season. Instead, the former National Player of the Year will become an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

Fredette told Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports, "this is a business decision for the Kings and they are doing what they believe is best for the organization. I will continue to work hard and be the best I can be moving forward in my career."


'Glenn from Moses Lake, you're on the air'

Posted Oct 31st - 9:46am by Greg Wrubell

PROVO — Years ago, from the mid-to-late 1990s into the turn of the century, I hosted a nightly sports talk show on KSL Radio. I was a solo host, and the responsibility of going it alone every night helped me grow as a broadcaster. The lone-man-in-the-booth approach also made me reliant on a good guest list, and good listener calls; this was of course before the days of tweets and texts as supplementary feedback.

One of those listeners who became a regular caller, both during my show and later during football and basketball broadcasts, was a man I came to know simply as "Glenn from Moses Lake."

His name was Glenn Perrins, and he lived in Moses Lake, Washington, but in the radio universe we shared, he was known to me by his first name and his hometown, and that was it.


Hill providing thrills for BYU fans

Posted Oct 30th - 2:26pm by Greg Wrubell

If the the question from national college football commentator Tony Barnhart was unexpected, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill didn't let it faze him.

"What do you think about throwing your name in the Heisman Trophy (mix)?" Barnhart asked during Hill's Tuesday interview appearance on CBS Sports Network. "Are you a contender?"

Moments before, Barnhart referenced Hill's "coming-out party" against Texas, when the BYU sophomore accounted for almost 400 yards of total offense in leading the Cougars to a 40-21 win over the Longhorns. Hill's 259 rushing yards that night rank second all-time at BYU, and the team's 550 rush yards represented a BYU record and the most ever allowed by Texas in a single game.


The Cougars are flying high into the bye week

Posted Oct 28th - 7:25pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — As BYU begins its second bye week of the season, Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall couldn't help but reflect on the Cougars' impressive win this past Friday against Boise State.

"After the film and watching Boise State, a really good football game. Offensively, defensively we continue to gain momentum. I think our team is improving, I think they're more optimistic than ever. The bye week comes at a really good time to heal. (It's) nice to get a few extra days looking at Wisconsin. We're looking forward to a great game in Madison, on a big stage in front of a lot of people."

After Friday's win over the Broncos, Coach Mendenhall wasn't sure how he would structure practices during the bye week. Today, he revealed that it will be a mixture of getting healthy and getting ready for the Badgers.


BYU picked 2nd in WCC hoops title chase; Haws named all-league

Posted Oct 24th - 1:53pm by Greg Wrubell

Perennial powerhouse Gonzaga is the favorite to win the West Coast Conference regular season championship in a preseason poll of the league's ten coaches, released on Wednesday at the WCC Tipoff event in Los Angeles.

The Zags captured eight of 10 first-place votes, with second-place BYU and third-place Saint Mary's each getting a single first-place tally. The third-through-sixth place teams were separated by a total of seven poll points.

BYU's Tyler Haws was the lone Cougar selected to the ten-player All-WCC team; Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and San Francisco each had two players selected.


BYU wins Cougar Tipoff

Posted Oct 23rd - 11:59pm by Jason Ludlow, KSL.com Contributor

PROVO — The new guys may have received most the off-season buzz, but it was the old vets who stole the show at BYU men's basketball's annual Cougar Tipoff Wednesday night at the Marriott Center.

Junior guards Matt Carlino and Tyler Haws lit up the scoreboard for 28 and 31 points respectively, showing potential for a high-scoring offense this upcoming season.

"I'm really pleased with the effort of the guys, and we saw a lot of good things in the scrimmage," said head coach Dave Rose during post-scrimmage interviews. "I think there's a lot of things to improve on, but all in all, I'm pretty pleased with the guys tonight for their effort."
