After a two-week break, Jess and Mary are together again just in time to recap BYU Football media day, which took place on Friday, June 23. There was so much to take in, a BYUtv special on Coach Lavell Edwards, a two-hour BYU Sports Nation, a three-hour Behind the Mic with Greg Wrubell as well as web chats with players hosted by Lauren Francom. We’ll be spending the next few weeks breaking down some things we learned on media day, starting with a Three Things segment about what stood out to us. In classic Cougs on Cougs fashion, we discuss Lavell Edwards’s legacy, team hairstyles, and the depth chart/position changes. Less than two months until BYU kicks off against Portland State, and the hype is getting real!
In a bit of disappointing news, the NBA draft was Thursday, June 22 and BYU Basketball big man Eric Mika was not drafted. However, some have him listed in the top five of undrafted college players. In Keeping up with the Cougars, we discuss Eric’s opportunity to play with the Miami Heat in the NBA summer league and where that may lead him. Whatever happens, we’re grateful for his time at BYU and will be following his pro career. All the best to Eric!
Eric made the right decision .. as athletes our goal is to always play professional basketball That dude will be super successful! pic.twitter.com/PKB4oyOmCC— Nick Emery (@NickEmery04) June 23, 2017
In Talk of the Town this week, the little brother of one of BYU Basketball’s stars received an offer from the BYU Football coaching staff, BYU Football Offensive Coordinator Ty Detmer met up with the creator of the Tysman Rap, and BYU Basketball summer workouts are now in session!
We’ll see you next week!
