Going after the poly pipeline.Chow is already telling Kyle what to
do. Seems Chow has all his coaches where he wants themQuestion is,
how long will it take until Kyle decides to be HC again?
I love the BYU flavor that is the U of U coaching staff. It's nice to see that
the Utah administration values the BYU background of these men; at least the
administration recognizes quality and talent when they see it. They might have
not been good enough for BYU's "raise-the-bar" standards, but they
certainly are and will be top notch contributors for the Utes program. Go Utes.
nttyou,U might have a point. BYU is a great "feeder"
school for coaches. A lot of coaches learn the ropes against less stressfull,
watered down competition. The very few that cut the mustered will move on the
BCS programs.Kinda like going to Junior College to learn the basics.
@wedgieLooks like a staff in disarray to me. Guys getting demoted
and re-assigned. After the disastrous finish to the utah season it was obvious
that a poor job of coaching was occuring and that the recruiting, especially at
the qb position, has been sub par. Sadly all the qb's utah pursued this
recruiting year rejected them with one going to Washington, one going to ASU and
one going to BYU. That's 3 direct rivals taking qb's they probably don't even
need. Funny that all of those kids would prefer to go to schools with
upperclassmen qb's in place and no immediate chance to play rather than utah
with a terrible qb, who is injured on top of that, and the legendary qb maker
norm chow on staff. That's very telling and let's us know exactly what qb's
think about going to utah.
That's a funny spin, Duck. Go ahead and think that if you like, and it makes
you feel better. Not quite sure why you spend so much time posting on Utah
articles. You seem a little obsessed with making sure we know youre opinion.
"Looks like a staff in disarray to me"You know you are on
a Utah Football article, right Ducky? The only program in coaching
"disarray" would be byU. The only coaching staff that does not have a
DC and has an inexperienced OC is byU.Bag on Wynn all you want, his
numbers were better than Heaps even with an injured shoulder.btw...2
out of 3 and BLOCKED!GO UTES!
Wedgie - Really? Hey, how did the Utes do against that watered down, feeder
school in football this year? Oh...had to come from behind, on a hope and a
prayer, to win on a botched BYU FG attempt. And last year? Now, against that
BCS competition...I see a Vegas Bowl appearance streak coming!
btw, UCuteAbout Loyd, Duck wanted you to back up your assertion
regarding his run ins with the law. There is a great article from
the trib that says Loyd was busted in south Jordan for possession of marijuana
over a year prior to his being dismissed. So, you were right.Duck,
you asked for proof, and you have been given it.
@pocy and utahcountyuteWas something in my post incorrect? Did utah
not demote all of their offensive coordinators? Did the 3 qb's they offered
scholarships to not opt to go to 3 of their direct rivals? Did utah not end the
season with a thud losing 3 out of there last 5 and barely scoring any points in
the process? Did these kids not reject utah knowing full well that norm chow is
now on the staff?I don't know if that is "spin" or not but
certainly all of things are facts.
@pocyuteHow bout a link? Your word isn't really credible. But even
if that is true he was obviously dismissed so it catches up to all of them
Duck, your "facts" are off: "Sadly all the qb's utah
pursued this recruiting year rejected them with one going to Washington, one
going to ASU and one going to BYU" -Per Scout and Rivals
Kuresa was not offered a schollie at Utah.Now if you had stated some
factual information like you did in your 2nd post, I wouldn't consider it spin,
but your first post is all spin:"Looks like a staff in disarray
to me" -Not a fact your opinion=spin"disastrous
finish"--your opinion=spin"rather than utah with a
terrible qb" - You're opinion=spin."That's very telling
and let's us know exactly what qb's think about going to utah." So you
think just because they chose another school you know exactly what a 17 or 18
year old boy thinks--again your opinion=spinRealistically Duck, you
had two facts in your whole post-2 of the QBs that Utah recruited went to other
schools, but even that you stretched too. I don't consider ASU and Wash rivals,
just in the same conference, but that's just my opinon.
DuckSl trib: Sep 15, 2010 Paragraph 4 and 5A few
points here:1. you called UCUte a liar, and he was 100% correct.2. Plenty of BYU fans who have insinuated that Langi didn't go to BYU
because of the run in with the law or his unwillingness to live by the honor
code. What is that insinuation based on? Because of his run-in with the
law?That is a ridiculous notion because as the FACTS show, BYU is willing
to work with kids if the make mistakes before (Kyle Van Noy) or after (Loyd)
they enter school. It's true that Loyd ultimately was dismissed,
but it was a year and half later, indicating Rose probably knew about it, and
was working with him to keep him in school, which I absolutely applaud. As a BYU grad and member of the LDS church I think it is a ridiculous
notion that LDS kids don't chose BYU only because they aren't worthy.How judgemental and arrogant does one have to be to think the only reason a
player doesn't chose the school is because they aren't worthy to go?
excuse me choose, not chose
ute-chute,"Question is, how long will it take until Kyle
decides to be HC again?"Being from California maybe you haven't
read and followed all the Utah information lately. Kyle made it clear in
interviews before and after the Las Vegas bowl that he had studied Boise State's
offense in detail during the season and he wanted to structure a Utah offense
more like the Boise State offense. When Chow was hired by Kyle and Chow spoke
to the media he stated flatly that he works for Kyle and that he is going to
implement what Kyle wants which is a QB more under center, more play action
passes, and more of a down hill running game. Sounds to me like the changes
being made by Kyle to bring in Tim Davis as the offensive line coach (he was
with Chow at USC) and from how Chow has been describing what they will do with
the offense is right in line with what Kyle has been saying since early December
2010.Does all this sound like Kyle is not the head man and in
charge? Do you know anything about a guy named LaVelle Edwards?
PocyUteWell said on all accounts! I don't expect Ducky
to respond though.
@pocyYes Kuresa was recruited by the utes. Whether or not they
offered him a scholarship I suppose I dont know but once he accepted the offer
from BYU I am sure the utes no longer wanted to give him an offer and save the
embarrassment of a rejection. But they absolutely recruited him and pursued him
and it has been well documented in both local newspapers.As far as
my other comments go it is apparent the utah coaching staff was/is in disarray.
You don't demote your offensive coordinators if everything is hunky dory. You do
not re-assign coaches that are performing at a top level. utahs
finish was terrible. That is not my opinion that is fact. Getting annihilated on
national tv 3 times in the last 5 games is certainly not a good finish is it?
Maybe that is the sort of performance that satisfies you and other ute
"fans"?I suppose it is my opinion that wynn is
"terrible" but not just mine alone. Actually if you care to go back
and check these forums from the end of the season you'll see most ute
"fans" agree on that one.
Be careful with Ducky, guys. He has really had a rough time with mean Ute fans.
It has caused this obsession you see daily on Utah articles. So please be
gentle. He's a tender hearted little guy.
Duckhunter: If my team went 7-6 with a shalacking at the hands of utah
state I would keep my comments to myself. You seem awfully confident in Heaps
and the coaching staff. What did heaps do this year that Jordan wynn didnt do as
a freshmen? So heaps leads his team to a 6 and 6 record and beats the mighty
utep in a bowl game and now hes Joe Montana. Before you look at Utah why dont
you take a look at your own team. Theyve got enough problems.Scoreboard!
Love, utah and utah state lol
@pocyuteSo once again where is the evidence that Michael Lloyds
problems were known by the coaches at BYU? I read your article and it says right
in it that the coaches and administrators at BYU all claimed to know nothing
about those things and that Lloyd did not report them to them at anytime. Is
your assertion that Dave Rose and the rest of the BYU administration lying about
that? As a self proclaimed "BYU Grad and LDS member" do you really
think that is how the people in authority positions at your claimed churches
university behave? But then you make another false claim that BYU
"worked" with Lloyd despite his legal issues even though BYU claims to
have known nothing about them until after he was dismissed. Van Noy
was another issue. He was required to sit out an entire year before he could
enroll. My guess is the same thing would have been required of langi and he
simply didn't want to do that. Just like Unga was told he could return to school
after a year. So of course BYU will "work" with students but if they
don't want to be worked with....
...if they don't want to be worked with then there isn't much you can do about
it. BYU will never say what they told langi after his pot bust. You don't know
and neither do I. What we do know is that they quit recruiting him shortly after
it occured and based on the way they have dealt with previous similar
situations, THAT THEY ACTUALLY KNEW ABOUT, we can surmise they probably told
langi he would have to do something similar to what was required of Van Noy and
that he didn't want to have to do it.That is fine. He will be a good
back for utah but BYU has alot of good backs in their system so it is not a huge
loss for them. Frankly it is a bigger get for utah than it is a loss for BYU
given their respective rb situations. Not surprised to see other ute
"fans" on here like utahcountyute be quick to try and agree with you
either. That certainly doesn't lend any credibility to your opinions. LOL
@DuckHunterI am beginning to think that you are like Chris B. I
mean really, I think you are a Utah fan posing to make BYU fans look silly. A
clever troll would have interesting arguments. You don't.
Duckhunter: Posted this question to you the other day and still havent
gotten an answer.According to scout Utah has ten more commitments with
more BCS offers than BYUs best recruit (Ryker Matthews).I would love to
hear your explanation since byu gets any recruit they want. Did they just decide
that they didnt want to get anyone thats any good this year? Because they could
get Jadeveon Clowney in a heartbeat if they wanted too
p.s.I LOVE how I have captured the attention of so many ute
"fans". LOL The inferiority complex that you have towards BYU is fun
Big benI keep telling you htis but you continue to not get it.
Dante's lowest level of hell was reserved for hypocrites. A hypocrite is defines
in Webster's as "one feigning to be what one is not". You continually
"feign to be" above the fray. You "feign to be" a non hater.
You "feign to be" classy. You "feign to be" alot of things
that you obviously are not. You need to consider where you are headed.I on the otherhand don't "feign to be" anything other than I am. I
am a BYU fan that neve even read a utah article until a few months ago. I was
tired of reading classless comments by idnividuals like wedgie, christina, naval
lint, uthacountyute, kankles, pocyute and hypocritical comments by you big
ben.I post on utah articles purely because you are all on BYU
articles. I am returning the favor and you are all up in arms about it.I will tell you one more time. If you all quit then I will quit. And the
difference is I will gladly quit because I don't really care about you or your
Ducky,"Not surprised to see other ute "fans" on here
like utahcountyute be quick to try and agree with you either. "Uh Ducky, Pocy was the one agreeing with me. You are the one that called me a
liar. Your long winded response really had not content either, just
"surmises". You are a trolling byU "fan" on a
Utah article and you love doing it. It is what it is.
My take on the Utah QB situation:This is my own opinion. I have
nothing to back up this opinion. I am putting a positive spin on the QB
situation, so if you don't like that then don't read this.When Kyle
and Chow met with the Eubank kid in his home one week before signing day (all
reports from Rivals was that it was a very good meeting despite what you may
have read on the blogs about his mom showing them the door) and they pushed
their scholie offer, I believe the two coaches came away from that meeting
wanting the kid but content to wait a year if he didn't come to Utah. Which is
why Erickson was able to plead with the kid to keep his commitment to ASU with
apparently no counter move by Utah. Chow knows the landscape in California and
he has someone else in mind right now that Utah will go after. I believe Chow
told Kyle, "Good if he comes, but we don't need to get on our hands and
knees". Time will tell but that is my take on it.
Duck,You are climbing yourself into a bigger hole.Here
is a quote from Kuresa himself from when he commited ot BYU "I
wanted to stay in Utah and I didn't feel like (the University of) Utah was
showing that much interest," I'm not sure where all the
documentation that Utah definitely was after Kuresa was.Remember
what John Adams said:"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever
may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot
alter the state of facts and evidence."
@DuckhunterWhat on planet earth are you talking about?
DuckNow, as for Loyd: All the article says is that BYU
officials didn't know about Loyd's troubles. We don't know who those officials
were. Rose declined an interview regarding Loyd. I think (opinion here) Rose
probably knew and was trying to take care of it in house. I don't have a
problem with that, or with how BYU handled the situation. Personally, I would
think it is a major problem if one of Rose's players got busted for possession
of marijuana, and he didn't know about it. I think it is a great if Rose knew,
and was trying to help Loyd stay on the team.You are correct, you
can't work with people who aren't willing to work you. But to asserting that
Harvey wasn't willing to do that is, in my opinion, a big jump. Also, how is one a "self proclaimed BYU grad or member of the
church" You either are or you aren't?
BYU is a legit top 3 team of all time. I think that they have been able to
recruit better than you have. Lets look at waht we have next year:-Romney Fuga will own u. -We have Jake Heaps, you have Jordan Wynn,
'nuff said. -Jan Jorgenson might come home from his mission early and
play next year. Take that!!!!!-Corby Eason is a five star recruit!-Kyle Van Noy taught Jason Taylor how to play the game.You utsies
dont have a chance! We will be victorious! Sorry to say, but we dont need the

pay attention.1. Show me the last time I posted on a BYU article.
Give me documentation. 2. Show me the last time I posted anything
anti-BYU, or attacking BYU in any of my posts.The reality is you're
going to have a very difficult time answering either. I haven't posted on or
read a BYU article in many many months.I also have NEVER, attacked
BYU in any of posts.
