In Episode 312 of the Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Matt and I spend most of the time talking hoops and previewing the St. Mary’s game. What will it take for the Cougars to contain national player of the year candidate Jock Landale and beat the Gaels? Also on the show: Kyle Van Noy in the Super Bowl, Tom Holmoe talks independence, and our favorite movies of 2017.
In episode 311, Matt and I chat about what these two blowout victories against lesser WCC foes mean for the men’s basketball team. Has TJ Haws returned to form? Men’s volleyball had an historic win against Ohio State, and we get excited about that. Also on the show: Taysom Hill blocks punts and football recruiting struggles.
We discuss what the loss to Pacific means to BYU’s dwindling tournament chances. What has happened to Tyler Haws, and how can the Cougars avoid another loss to a lesser WCC team? Also on the show: Don’s fantasy football team, and predicting 2018 football results way too early.
Brandon Gurney of the Deseret News joins the podcast to discuss a lackluster BYU football recruiting class, the current QB situation, the hiring of Jeff Grimes, and whether the men’s basketball team is over-achieving. Matt and I then talk about Cougars making significant impacts in the NFL, what the St. Mary’s loss means to BYU’s tourney chances, and we break down the recent football coaching staff changes.
