A couple of weeks ago we posted a list of Cougars to watch at the start of spring training. Here is an updated list of how each player has fared thus far.

Otis Spurlock
Ogden, UT

BYU's offensive motto this year is, "Throw the ball to the receivers a couple of hundred of times and they will probably catch a few".

Seriously, this year's team is pretty good. Most are probably good enough to play for Weber and Utah State.

Thank you folks, I will be until Friday, try the veal.

West Jordan, UT

Did Chris B. change his name and move to Ogden?

Roberts, ID

I small correction. Taysom Hill did not transfer from Stanford. He committed to Stanford out of high school and went on a mission prior to starting his college career and changed his mind an enrolled at BYU.
As for Spurlock, "Where little is given, little is expected."

Omaha, NE

Were there any more than two who weren't injured? Good thing it's only April.

La Grange, TN

BYU has got to get into a major conference (BIG 12). TV exposure can be a good thing and a bad thing. If BYU is "exposed" as being a program that is going down inch by inch talent level wise, it will have a negative effect on recruiting and the drop will begin to happen much more quickly. Then you have to ask yourself who is going to watch all this "exposure" if the package is losing and looking second rate? If a sports program or a business is not getting better and becoming more successful, it is slowly falling apart. BYU, its students and loyal fans will pay the price and end up watching a slow death of something that was once flirting with greatness.

Bountiful, UT

It's funny (or pathetic) how Spurlock is always the first poster on EVERY BYU article in the DN.
