Happy Marques Johnson Day: 99 Days to Kickoff!

Today, we begin our countdown to BYU’s season opener at Connecticut, 99 days from now.

Each day between now and Friday, August 29th, we will feature the player(s) who wear(s) that day’s jersey number. This is a tradition that dates back to the early days of Cougarboard and that I took over in 2009. It’s a fun way to pass the time and learn a little bit about every player on the team before the season starts.

    From what I see there are those in the Salt lake media that would love to see BYU’s program killed or injured badly….Its the byu haters at their best these days….

    Nothing has been proven or taken to the NCAA infraction committee.

    It hurt to read the news and the blatent comments made by the haters. I believe whatever comes of this will be considered a cover-up and the haters of BYU and the LDS church will have another bone to chew on…These people are out to destroy Brigham Young University and any of the good it does.
