20 years ago: Detmer looks sharp in scrimmage

Ty Detmer says the BYU football team isn't a well-oiled machine yet, but it's getting there.

Detmer himself looked sharp in the scrimmage, completing 17 of 25 passes for 263 yards. The Heisman Trophy winner also spent more time chewing out teammates for lack of effort.

"We've been dragging the last few days," he said. "I figured it was time to start pushing them."

Still, both Detmer and coach LaVell Edwards were satisfied that this session was much improved over the first scrimmage, and that the team was pretty much on schedule for its date with Florida State.
