Quixote required reading @ tds?
this is a big get for the utes. I still wish we had Shak and feel bad for him,
and he will always be a Ute.
Well unless you grow up adverse to them, tds is a front runner for every in
state kid that is getting recruited...when he came to his wisdom and looked at
the differences, he has eliminated them.
BYU was a frontrunner for a few years, as of late he is considering Utah and
USC. That is probably because with Wide, Asiata, and Shakerin gone he has a
chance to start.
Langi has already indicated that his decision is between USC and Utah. the cewgs
are not in the mix.
Re: Laser - Langi isn't considering BYU...sorry. Additionally, Utah will be
competing for the Rose Bowl every year and can make it to the championship game.
byU on the other hand won't. it's as simple as that. I'm not talking smack, I'm
just being objective.
with the loss of shakerin this year, it is important to get that second running
back. Hope we have a good stable of RBs next year. Getting White is a great
first step.and any RB who goes to byu is out of his mind, just like
Unga. He would have been playing this year and possibly would have helped the
Utes in those tuff games.A byu team that is pass first and run, well
pass second, third and fourth and then run if your arm is a little tired....
that team is not a great bet for a running back.Unga did make it to
the NFL because he was Heisman calibre and on almost any other team than byu, he
would have led the nation in yards per rush and rushing yards per game and been
a finalist 3 years in a row for the Heisman. Oh well, he got out and his talent
will be recognized and appreciated by his coaches.
hedgehog,"Hmmm, I'm assuming you mean you didn't SEE him break
takles because no highlights SHOWED him breaking takles. The kid is explosive,
huge pick-up."But the highlight did show him going down every
time somebody put a hand on him. I agree he looks very explosive. So the fact
that the highlights didn't show him breaking tackles, makes me assume he doesn't
do a lot of it. It looks like a great addition though.
@ laser Interesting blue colored glasses you see through. I see Utah fans
poking fun at BYU, But, I see all of the hate going from BYU toward Utah fans.
BYU doesn't seam to have any National accomplishments in the past several years
to throw at Utah, so they just spew hate toward them.Be careful how and
who you point your finger at.
mikeyd,"On youtube he looks extremely quick and very elusive in
the open field. However it doesn't look like he breaks a lot of tackles"Hmmm, I'm assuming you mean you didn't SEE him break takles because no
highlights SHOWED him breaking takles. The kid is explosive, huge pick-up.
All of you talking about YAC and breaking tackles...the dude runs for 8.1 yards
per carry. If he doesn't break tackles but somehow gets 8 yards downfield
before he is touched...ok by me. 8.1 yard per carry = big play potential. I
love this signing.
Looks like a good addition.Get Langi too!Reloading
before the season even ends.Bring on the PAC!
This is an excellent athlete to help in the Ute backfield. He has speed and
will need to work on YAC. If we can get Langi, that would be a huge addition!
I doubt we can get other power backs like Tra Carson or Adonis Amere-Moore out
of Colorado. So far we have Lucky Radley who still has yet to get an
opportunity to showcase his speed/talent. Add to that John White and Jarrell
Oliver out of Texas. We may have some good talent in the backfield. One thing
must be addressed? QB, Coach Whitt needs to give incoming freshman Derrick
Brown and Griff Robles a chance. Need to try something if this team is to have
success in the Pac-12. Go UTES!
On youtube he looks extremely quick and very elusive in the open field. However
it doesn't look like he breaks a lot of tackles, or get a lot of yards after
contact. He looks like a good addition, but will definitely need more of a power
back to complement him.
Do the youngsters care about top 25 end of season rankings? Maybe some grads of
a fine research institution can help them figure that one out.
Laser,Tradition doesn't matter to kids today. What kid is going to care
that BYU won a MNC almost 10 years before they were born. Notre Dame has more
tradition and they still struggle. You can talk all you want about tradition,
but in the last 10 years Utah is much more impressive.
Keep posting ute fans, you've driven away more than one athlete to BYU because
of your "hate" speech. Cougar fans everywhere thank you. By the way
Langi will love playing on ESPN 8-9 times year. Plus chances are better to win
another National Championship at a school that has already won one. Also a Doak
Walker award, or heck maybe a Heisman. The tradition is incredibly rich in
Wiley,Let's be realistic here. Harvey wants to go to a great
football team with other athletic talent. End of story.When he's
thinking about Utah he sees other athletes on a great football team.When he's thiking about tds he sees students who pretend to be athletes on a
mediocre(see 6-6)team.This discussion is about whether harvey will
come to the U. School does not really play into the deciding factor. He wants
to play with other athletes. That is the point I was making.
Haha we have Hague and you don't
hotsauce78,I tend to agree with your assesment of Langi. Infact, I
wouldn't be suprised if he ends up play LB in college.This JC kid
just might be a huge pick up.
You had better hope Langi signs before he watches the Vegas Bowl.
Chris,Utes athletes are also expected to be studious (and are performing
well on that front). If not, that would be a negative. And Kyle expects
"honorable" conduct from his team, also a positive.I'm no
BYU fan, and while many of your other points are valid, there's no need to be
Laser.... good luck with that... a couple of recruiting services are reporting
its down to Utah or USC. Some other reports say he leaning towards staying in
state.... if you read into both of these story lines? I like the common
Don't pencil in Langi yet. He has to jump into the next level and who knows if
he can make it as a Freshman. He's a great high school football player in UTAH,
but that doesn't account for a lot. He is a wait and see. Besides, the Utes
might have someone we don't know about yet. No one heard of Eddie Wide and we
all saw what he did. Besides, the path Langi apparently is starting to take off
the field might effect him.
UCLA is desperate for recruites.....might pull out all the stops for langi
that's great to hear about Christopher giving back to the community. Thanks for
including that in the article.
Harvey will sign also.Many great running teams feature 2 backs.Let's consider his options - he's leaning towards staying in Utah right
now.So his options areBCS league - Utahnon BCS -
tdsReal atheletic teammates - UtahReal studious teammates -
tdsCoach who knows winning is #1 - UtahCoach who think winning
is #6 - tdsTeam proven TWICE it can run the table - UtahTeam
that has proven it will NEVER run table - tdsTeam that will compete
for NC's - UtahTeam that will compete for S.F. bowl - tdsTeam
that doesn't lose bowl games. Ever - UtahTeam that is 5-20(or close to)
in bowl - tdsNo "honor" code - utah"honor"
code - tds11-2 team - utah6-7 or 7-6 team - tds6
players picked in last NFL draft - utah1 player picked in last NFL draft -
tdsWhat a tough decision!
Hope this doesn't hurt the U in the Harvey Langi sweepstakes. We will need both
of these guys next year in the PAC-12.
This could be bad timing for Utah to announce this recruit, maybe their offer to
Langi to come in and start immediately wasn't sincere. This may cement Langi
going to Provo.
Check out his Youtube video! two steps faster than anyone on the field.
