Cougs on Cougs: Previewing BYU Basketball’s roster

Jess and Mary take a look at the new BYU Basketball roster and put on their doctor gear to try and diagnose what is ailing the BYU Football team.

NCAA Basketball: St. Mary's at Brigham Young Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Happy October, Cougar Fans! We are basically into the best time of the year: When BYU Football and BYU Basketball collide. NCAA College Basketball practices officially began Sept. 29, and BYU Basketball Media Day is Thurs., Oct. 5. To get you ready, we’re breaking down the 2017-18 BYU Basketball roster. A total of nine, yes nine, players from last season have left the program for a variety of reasons and as a result, there are a bunch of fresh faces this season.

Which players have recently returned from missions and are expected to make an impact? Which players have transferred into the program and where do they fit in? Which players from last season are returning this season? All these questions and more are answered in our #BYUHoops preview.

Last week, we suspended the “What Went Right” portion of Coaching from the Couch. This week, we decided to skip that segment altogether, and instead bring back “The Doctor Is In” to try and diagnose some of the ailments plaguing the BYU Football team, and make some prescriptions that may cure them. Unfortunately, there are no real quick, easy fixes, but a few of our suggestions could have an immediate impact. Let’s hope BYU rights the ship against Boise State Friday night (it is Homecoming, after all) so Coaching from the Couch can return in its full form next week!

Very important things are discussed in Talk of the Town this week, including whether or not Taysom Hill is reminded of his injuries each year on the day BYU Football plays Utah State, if Tanner Mangum is a nervous nail-biter or not, and if former BYU running back/linebacker Michael Alisa is a part-time model.

If you need some distractions from the disappointing BYU Football season, we have some suggestions for you! Check out the hashtag #CougsandCorgis on Twitter (and please add to it if you have a Corgi!), and consider purchasing “Becoming Cosmo”, a new children’s book based on Cosmo the Cougar.
