for those who think that Heaps is only doing well because he is playing cupcakes
obviously don't know whats going on.For those of you that watched
heaps all season see that he has progressed. Over the by week, the coaches
dissected, and restructured the passing game. Before this change,
the timing was off, all secondary reads went to the running back in the flats or
a 3 yard dump over the middle, he was lasering passes without touch, and was
throwing off his back foot.He's now spending more time with his
receivers and getting enough repetition to make reads without seeing the
receiver.He still has a long way to go before he's great, but
knowing where his receiver stops on a route like a 10 yard hitch was something
that was non-existent before last week.cupcakes or not, heaps looks
a ton better.now that his receivers are helping him a little more...
I have to admit, the score of the BYU vs CSU game was more lopsided than the
actual game. Take away a few of CSU's turnovers and BYU's big plays and it
could have been a nail biter. CSU is not a cupcake, but they are a lot like BYU
this year - a lot of young talent still learning to execute. I think they will
compete for the MWC crown in a couple of years.This Texan is
cheering for two more BYU wins and an Aztec victory over the Utes. This would
clearly make BYU the front runner for the Las Vegas bowl. After our pitiful
start to the season, the Las Vegas bowl feels like quite an accomplishment.
Great play! For a while, I had to take a double look to make sure I wasn't
watching a Boise State game!! That was a play out of their playbook.
Fully Invited You just confirmed Y4LYFE's point.Utah has
no history besides 2004 and 2008.BYU's 1996 team was the equal of
Utah's 2004 team, #5/#5 in the final polls versus #4/#5; and BYU 1984 team far
exceeded Utah's best team, 2008, #1/#1 versus #2/#4.Final rankings
are the final word.Which brings us to the present.BYU
finishing in the Top 25 four of the last four years. Utah only managing to
finish in the Top 25 in two of the last four years.
And by out I mean gone. Nonexistent.
@Y4LYFESeriously? *Sigh* Alright: You say we're living in 04 and 08.
Fair enough, what era are you living in? 1984 perhaps??? What was that- 26 years
ago? What has BYU done on a national scale in the past 20 years? (cue crickets
chirping) And I find it amusing you say our success is from a BYU education. Go
check out who was honored as the distinguished fan of the game when Utah played
Air Force last year. A Utah alumni. Here's a hint- his last name is Monson. I
know you love that! As well as how well BYU "handled" those Aggies up
in Logan- guess we know who the true blue football team of 2010 is! 8-2 >
5-5. Rise and shout: the Coogars are out. At least their Bowl eligibility will
be in a couple weeks.
CSU can hardly be considered a cupcake. Yes, it is true they have a poor
record, but just the week before on the road they played a great game at SDSU,
losing by just five points. But how good is SDSU, you ask? Well, good enough
to come within five points of beating then number three TCU at TCU. So, the BYU
blowout over CSU really was a pleasant surprise given CSU's recent showing and
BYU being winless on the road this year. Heaps looked poised and confident.
Ashworth made his receptions count. BYU has accomplished a great deal since the
beginning of the season. Hopefully, the success will continue for the last two
Wow, a flea-flicker from BYU! Does that mean Robert Anae has finally recognized
BYU must be more creative on offensive plays? I sure hope so.It's
great to see BYU use more running plays to better set up its passing game and to
concentrate on getting first downs when faced with 2nd and short yardage on the
other team's end of the field--where all four downs could be used if necessary.
In the past, Robert too often called for pass plays that too often stalled long
drives because of holding penalties, incompletions, etc. I suppose he thought he
could fool the other team, but everyone knew how he thought and were waiting for
his pass plays. They were too predictable!I was ready to join the
throng of people calling for Robert's replacement, but with the firing of the
defensive assistant, maybe Robert got the message. He seems to be more creative
suddenly. I'm anxious to see what happens in the last two games. A win over New
Mexico AND Utah will cause me to change my mind and think Robert is worth
Way to go Cougs! Great job Bronco! Hope you all stay focused and work hard for
the next game...looking forward to the Utah/BYU game...hopefully it will be a
re: Sports Junkie Smooth transition with the Brian Johnson example.
You have proven once again the axiom " Give them enough rope and they will
hang themselves " it is always true.No body knows what will
happen in this game week to week let alone what will transpire beyond college.
Ute "fans" just don't know anything outside of 2004 and 2008, they
never existed before those years, because they are those kinds of
"fans", they don't know anything about their team or players, so they
say ignorant things, assuming their all-time great qb is succeeding at the next
level, when he never even played a down. But they do have Smith (oh
wait...ya...), something more Y fans probably know than utah
"fans".Those coaches are winning thanks to a BYU
"Simple:80s - Steve Young (great NFL starter)90s - Ty Detmer
(good NFL backup)2000s - Max Hall (NFL 3rd string)Back to the
bubble you go.No idea how good Heisman Heaps will be. He was good
against 2 cupcakes and struggled the rest of the year. Just like Wynn."...And how has Brian Johnson been doing in his NFL career? What? He has
never played a down in the NFL? How can that be? Utes greatest qb in history
never made it to the next level? Impossible.Try again dude.
UteologyYou're confusedCollege careers have nothing to
do with pro careers. Show me the requirement that says a college
career has to be validated by a pro career.There have been many
great college quarterbacks, who didn't make it in the pros, and some mediocre
college quarterbacks who had great success in the pros. Some do well at both,
but there's no requirement that you have to have a great pro career in order to
be considered a great college quarterback.
Uteology, It is true he struggled against good teams early. But he also
struggled against some cupcakes , which is why the fact that he dominated the
past two cupcakes he played shows that he has improved. How good he will end up
of course remains to be seen. But I think he will be pretty good the rest of his
seasons at the Y.
@dakuwaqaNot sure how you can say the QB factory is done when the team is
being led by a true freshman today.----Simple:80s
- Steve Young (great NFL starter)90s - Ty Detmer (good NFL backup)2000s - Max Hall (NFL 3rd string)Back to the bubble you go.No idea how good Heisman Heaps will be. He was good against 2 cupcakes
and struggled the rest of the year. Just like Wynn.
Tremendous ! Heaps got this one right when he complemented his team mates
publicly rather then calling them out like he did last week. Good job Bronco
teach your players how to play the game and how to speak to the press. It is
terrific to witness this team starting to rise up to there potential it is a
wonderful thing.Now lets not let this success cloud our perspective,
you must treat "Success and Failure" as the same impostor that will
keep you grounded in the reality that we have beat up to low end teams in the
conference. So to avoid the proverbial "Drinking of the Kool - Aid "
so to speak like our friends at the U of U, we need to keep working and playing
and having fun, for example the Utah JAZZ and there current historic road
winning streak."POLY" Cougar Nation
Keep it up Cougars, work hard and wYn hard!Go Y
It has been great to see the sudden change in play calling from Anai the past 2
games. Our game plan is open and exciting. Is it the competition? The bye week?
Hopefully the latter as it seemed to pay great dividends for us.This
has been a since the Utah State meltdown.
Awesome Play! Heaps to Ashworth!
