One of the biggest things I miss about being at BYU and in Provo is that I could go and enjoy a nice BYU sports team play all the time. One of my favorite sports to watch was Women’s Soccer. I liked it even better than the Men’s soccer because it was raw and enjoyable. Men’s soccer was so methodical that it wasn’t as unpredictable and therefore not as much fun to watch.
Well, this year there are high hopes for the BYU women’s soccer team. However, with high hopes that puts a lot of pressure on BYU to win. Fans will start coming out if a team with high hopes wins. Many fans stop coming when the team starts losing. This year they also need to make sure that they are peeking at the right time. The end of the year. Not midseason like last year.
Unfortunately, when it comes to soccer it’s almost like a coin toss. The better team doesn’t always win. So, rather than telling you to play well…I’ll just say…Good Luck!!
An excerpt from the Tribune article says:
Mendenhall suspended Cole Miyahira on Tuesday afternoon, six hours after the safety clashed with secondary coach Jaime Hill. The potential starter can’t return to the team until after the Sept. 2 season-opener against Arizona.
In his first season at BYU, Hill is a fiery coach not afraid to criticize his players. His emotional nature has irked some players, who haven’t been accustomed to this type of coaching.
After Tuesday’s incident,
Hill declined to address the issue. At that time Hill said he could talk Wednesday, but declined again.
“He knows the line between coach and buddy-buddy,” said safety Dustin Gabriel. “He never breaks that, so you always respect him. He knows his stuff.”
Good thing Dustin Gabriel is a great Safety. Gabriel’s only concern was health issues since he’d had so many concussions. This news can’t help BYU’s secondary. However, as long as Gabriel can stay healthy then we should be ok. Hopefully, Cole Miyahira comes back like Fahu Tahi did after his suspension.
