Good philosphy, as opposed to targeting short, unathletic players.

bRoko: "Joe Dupaixfrom the Navy Academy, will bring BYU up to date in the use of technology to where BYU isn't just recruiting a state"

No wonder Y brokos recruiting class is unranked, he didn't know how to use of a smartphone and that twitter made him all twitter-y. Now if they utilize those "flying machines" they can get beyond Bingham High.

LOL!

Does anybody know about the Jordan Smith kid from Spanish Fork? Didn't he serve a mission and everything? He was a tall, athletic kid who is going to be very important at filling in WR depth. I know that we will have Hoffman and Apo as the two outside guys, but Smith will be important to the future 2 man rotation. Not to mention Adam Hine is back. I know he was recruited as a running back, but his body type and athletic ability would make him an awesome WR. Some people mentioned that he should be a DB, but there is more depth there than some people think. I think he would see the field the most and make the most of his athletic ability at WR. This might sound kind of crazy, but I think that from top to bottom on the whole depth chart our DBs are more athletic than our WRs right now, and so I think adding Adam at WR is not only important for depth, but so that he can be a future starter. I think he was planning on redshirting. This would be the perfect time to learn the position.

Utes seemed to like home cooking and Bingham High. I think the Y was ranked, maybe not as high as last year but ranked somewhere.

News Flash to Bronko:

Athletes do not want to play at BYU. Ocassionally you'll get one who just loves the honor code, but 99 out of 100 athletes don't want to come within 100 miles of any silly rules like that.

U want to know Y you haven't been to a bcs game or had an undefeated, unike Us(twice), tcu(twice), boise(twice), or hawaii?

they all have athletes. You don't.

Nor will you ever.

What is great about BYU is that there is always a new batch of RM's coming home to compliment the program.

Many of these kids were 3 and 4 stars coming out, and of course are not factored into this years scorecard.

The USC transfer was a 4 star.

BYU had a great recruiting class last year, and yet many of those kids won't be seen for 2 to 3 years.

Chris B nice to see you back on the BYU boards what is your prediction for the record of this recruiting class in six years. 0-12 or 1-11?

"BYU signed seven high school recruits who are taller than 6-foot-6 on Wednesday, one of them Springville's 6-8 and basketball player Matt Sumsion who told Bronco Mendenhall he wanted to play tight end..."They are tall, can run and are good athletes," said Mendenhall"

hmm, but can they play football let go to scout,ESPN and Rivals and find out - shall we

Rival - N/R ( not even a profile)
ESPN - 45 score ( lowest a prospect can have) no other programs intrested besides BYU
Scout 2 star (no other programs interested besides BYU

You got to wonder if this is a knee jerk reaction in trying to get "more athletic" as oppossed to getting athletic football players.

Duh

Isn't it funny that Chris B and hedgehog are always the first to post on BYU articles. News flash Chris B, (and Hedgehog for that matter) you said it yourself, BYU is not all about football. There is more to BYU than just football and it bothers you so much that we can bring in mediocre athletes and still compete. Having an undefeated season would be nice but, it does not rule or define BYU. The honor code will always be there and for true BYU fans, we know that but we still support them. If we never win a BCS game or a National Championship, BYU will not fall apart and we will still support them. Hopefully some day, Utah can build a stadium that seats 65,000 and hopefully all of Utah's dreams will come true and hopefully Utah will maybe some day win a national championship and I will be there chearing them on but guess what, we will still have the honor code and we aren't going to settle on that no matter how Utah does. So, keep spewing your hate, it shows how childish you really are.

I feel sorry for Chris B and Hedgehog. It must be rough to live such miserable lives that you have to be so concerned about BYU sports. Deep down you are both scared about Jake Heaps upside at QB and the downside of the QBs at Utah. I think BYU will go 3-0 againts the Utes the next three years and I thnk you both know that is is inevitable too.

How about the Utes in Basketball? Not much to cheer about is there?

Congratulations Utah for winning the first recruiting battle in like 6 years, way to freaking go.

Get off our articles. No one cares what you have to say.

And Chris B, the "silly rules" are in place to keep our kids from becoming losers like you. It helps us get places, and in the words of the NCAA, helps our kids go pro "in something other than sports," which I know is a concept you don't grasp but if you can ever get your head around it you might actually succeed in life.

Duh

Oops sorry Cougar Claws, I seriously doubt Chris B could ever do that. Unless he was willing to expose his true identity, we will never know. An educated man would never actually speak like Chris B or hedgehog, they are most likely just UTE fans and not graduates. Their lack of intelligence is just too overwhelming to prove otherwise.

Hedgie....You're slobbering all over yourself...could barely make out what you were saying and Chrissy B. your pathetic...same resoning as to why you utey's haven't won a National Championship (we have) or a Heisman (we have) or a Doke Walker(we have) or a Davie O'Brian (we have=3) or an Outland (we Have=2)

So you have two undefeated seasons...but even though we only have one ours ended in a National Championship...Oh well...If close or also ran is good enough for you that's ok by me. But until you start picking up some nationally recognized Hardware you've got a lot of nothing. You will never be anything til you lose that " I'm satisfied to just make it into the BCS attitude..." while wagging your little tails eating scraps....Untilthen you will remain out of the big game and out of the National Championship. Good Luck in the PAC. I sincerely mean that. But you certainly have a big wakeup call coming...and you certainly don't realize just how big.

Hey Hedgie, you must have read a different article than I did. The above article I read gave a very good accounting, with references, for BYU's recruits. In fact, there were some there that Utah recruited, and several recruited by BCS schools. I haven't read the Utah recruits article, but after reading BYU's, don't think it is necessary to do so.
Conversely, you read ALL of BYU's articles, several times over. You seem to like your own posts, as you go back and read the responses to your posts. You must have an inferiority complex big time. After I post, I do not go back to see what someone has said in response to my posts. I don't care what they say. I have my say and I am done. Thank you for you love of BYU Cougar FB!
