BYU Basketball and Armed Forces Bowl Preview

Cougar fans, time to talk about the Cougar hoopsters. We've had some big games recently, and some exciting conference play upcoming. What can you expect in conference play? You'll find out from the CougarCorner experts!

BYU Cougar football is also preparing for the Armed Forces Bowl against Tulsa. What can Cougar fans expect from Tulsa? Scott and Chad have pulled out all the stops researching the Green Wave so you can know where they will zig and where they will zag. Our predictions have been so money all year, you know you can take it to the bank.

Don't forget Jimmer, we have a lot to talk about with our friend Jimmer making his debut in the NBA. You'll be amazed to hear what we have to say (well, maybe amazed is a strong word, but if you're easily amazed then you'll be amazed!).

Go Cougars, and visit!

Regular Season Wrap-up and thoughts on Jake Heaps

Cougar fans, it's time for another CougarCorner Podcast. In this podcast we cover some of the familiar corners of BYU sports, but we also take a special look at the regular season as a whole and Jake Heaps saga.

In our first corner we review the great game the Cougars played at Hawaii, winning 41 to 20 and hand out the coveted CougarCorner Player of the Game awards to... (hint: Riley Nelson, Joe Sampson, Daniel Sorensen, and the entire kick coverage unit are in the mix).

Our second corner takes a look at the BYU season as a whole. You'll be delighted when you hear some of our pre-season predictions and just how right, or wrong, we were were (although sometimes we didn't get there the way we thought we would. We also pick our regular season players of the season. Do you agree with our picks of Riley Nelson, Kyle Van Noy, and Cody Hoffman? Listen for our reasons.

Our third corner we turn our attention to the upcoming Bell Armed Forces Bowl and give you our brief thoughts on that, in advance of further indepth podcast covering the issue.

In our fourth corner we talk about the 800 lb gorilla in the room. Jake Heaps. Jake Heaps has announced he is leaving the program, so of course we have to share our thoughts about it. We talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly. Where does BYU go from here and where does Jake Heaps go.

And of course no CougarCorner Podcast is complete with out the trademarked Jimmer Corner. In this Jimmer Corner, we discuss the upcoming Jimmer-BA season and when you can catch Jimmer at the Energy Solutions Arena.

Enjoy Cougar fans and go Cougars!
