Paul Kruger looks just like his Dad at that age. I'm praying for a speedy recovery for all of these boys. (OLd Seminary teacher to the ELder Paul 30 years ago)


I'm a Cougar fan, but I hate hearing about stuff like this involving any athlete. I hope these guys recover quickly.


While I am a dyed in the wool Cougar, our thoughts and prayers are with these victims. These are the things that put our rivalry into perspective. God bless all affected by this gross injustice, and may the police catch those perpetrators so it won't happen again.


I'm a Cougar fan too. I wish the best for these guys. Here's to hoping they can get back on their feet quickly.


we seem to live in a world where courage is proved by how many can assualt one or two, especially those who are unarmed. cowardice rules.


this non-sense, catch these guys as a knife is as ruthless as a gun. the streets are turning into a killing zone, harming or ending someone's life is not worth it!And #77, take care and we love U!!

Classy comments Cougar fans.

Cougar Fan

Usually when I read stories like this, I assume that the athletes are involved in the "wrong" circles and somehow provoked the attack.

However, in this case, I can unequivocably say that Paul and David Kruger are good, solid citizens and are upstanding men. My sympathies go out to them and their injured teammate and I wish them a speedy recovery.

May the attackers be brought to justice!


Horrid! Get well soon! All we true blue Cougars want you to recover.

Good Luck!

I don't know the third Ute, but the Kruger bros. are a class act. Good Luck.


Count me as another Cougar fan praying for a quick recovery for the 3 Utes who were attacked and quick (and severe) justice for their cowardly attackers. I hope all appropriate law enforcement resources are dedicated to apprehending the perpetrators. We can't let our streets or our lives be governed by petty thugs.

Texas Cougar

Unbelievable! Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims.

Utah Man

Here is to a quick recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

BYU fan

Get better, Ute players. We'er all praying for you guys. I hope they can find the people responsible for this terrible act. Good luck, guys!


Anyone really surprised though that even good guys are in danger at U partys? Salt Lake is the new armpit of the state. Good news Ogden!


Doesn't seem to 'add up.' Just walking down the street - got jumped - umm.

God Bless

Speedy recovery to all three men. As a Ute fan I hope to see them back on the field, more importantly as a fellow human being I wish them a healthy recovery. My families prayers and thoughts are with you.

Re: Bucko

My thoughts exactly. Where is the rest of the story?

For Bucko

You need to take back your comments.....they have no business being published here. My son was at the party.

A bunch of people drove up in a car and started jawing at some partygoers on the lawn. Someone middle-fingered the car and it drove off. ONLY AFTER this incident did the Krugers come out of the house. Then the car returned, the perps got out, and they began fighting with anyone they could find. The players in question were only outside because they were leaving........they were not even witnesses to the original verbal altercation.

Please do not try to tear down the reputation of these fine young men by passing judgment on a situation you have no knowledge of.


These jerks will be found and sent away for many years. They've probably already bragged about it and now it's just a matter of someone coming forward.
Paul is tougher than two sacks of nails and he will come through this. Thank you to all Cougar fans who posted on this site and sent their good wishes. That is pure class.
