You have to look at the overall trajectory of the program, not the minor ups and downs from year to year. Taking a temporary step back after losing Jimmer and Emery is to be expected. Let's see what happens this year and the next. Rose continues to do a great job of recruiting, whether Jabari ends up at BYU or not.
The comment that Rose isn't headed in the right direction because of last year not being as good as the year prior when Jimmer and Emery were both seniors is just, frankly, idiotic.
