Two big BYU stories this week: a big win over Utah in basketball, and the hiring of Jeff Grimes as the new offensive coordinator. We discuss both. In basketball, we examine BYU’s tournament resume and extol the virtues of Elijah Bryant. Then we speculate about BYU’s 2018 football offense and explain why we think Grimes was the right man at the right time for the job.
It’s Rivalry Week. The Cougars and Utes are not playing it safe anymore, and neither are we. We preview the Utah game, make predictions, and make fun of the coach who shall not be named. Also on the show: Jamal and other Cougars shine in the NFL, offensive coordinator rumors, and The Last Jedi.
BYU men’s basketball is on a role, and transfer McKay Cannon is the spark the last two games. Is he a legitimate replacement for Nick Emery, or is this just two nice games? Matt and I also discuss a nice day for former teammates Taysom Hill and Jamaal Williams in the NFL, potential offensive coordinator candidates, the College Football Playoff, and women's volleyball reaching the Sweet 16.
In the latest Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Adam and Matt react to Ty Detmer being relieved of his offensive coordinator duties. What is the right decision? Who are the top candidates? They also discuss men’s basketball and the College Football Playoff.
In the seventh anniversary episode of the Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Matt and Adam pay tribute to BYU football seniors. They also, reluctantly, discuss the UMass game and briefly preview the Hawai’i game. Also on the show: early men’s basketball results, Roger Goodell must go, and college football chaos.
In Episode 303 of the Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Adam and Matt give their way-too-early impressions of the men’s basketball team, including who they think leads the team in scoring this season. They also weigh in on Joe Critchlow’s first start and project next year’s QB. And finally, Gordon Monson trashes Nick Emery, so we trash Monson’s column in response.
In Episode 302 of the Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Matt and Adam discuss who the QB will be and should be in Friday night’s game against UNLV. And while everyone is hammering the offense, does this 2-8 start suggest foundational problems in the program? They also talk hoops, including what Nick Emery’s absence could mean, and just how much the team will be relying on Yeoli Childs.
In our latest episode, Matt and Adam take a look at what little we know about the NCAA and BYU investigation into alleged benefits Nick Emery may have received. Then they break down what happened against San Jose State and lay out why they believe it will be a lot tougher sledding against Fresno State on Saturday night.
In the 300th episode of The Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Matt and Adam discuss which factors have had the biggest impact on BYU’s disastrous 1-7 start, and which factors maybe haven’t been. They also discuss women’s volleyball and Kyle Van Noy.
In episode 299, Adam and Matt give midseason grades and preview the East Carolina game. Also, is the tough independent schedule too much for BYU going forward? And is there any chance BYU goes bowling in 2017?
