Actually catching the ball helps huh cougars? Why wasn't this told to the
receivers last year?
Chris B:Don't let your hatred of BYU consume you. No one here takes you
Can't wait to see it in action! As part of my responsibility to
hype Heaps and the Cougars for the coming season (it's in the BYU-fan job
description), I decided to compare a common opponent from last season...UTEP vs. Arkansas, week 11, in Arkansas. Score: 58-21 Arkansas (then
ranked 15). Ryan Mallet threw for 215 yards and 5 touchdowns, completing 73% of
his passes. Arkansas' defense held UTEP to a total of 355 yards (including 117
on the ground). BYU vs. UTEP, bowl game, in NM. Score: 52-24 BYU
(unranked). Jake Heaps threw for 264 yards and 4 touchdowns, completing 74% of
his passes. BYU's defense help UTEP to a total of 233 yards (including -12 on
the ground).Arkansas was the 2nd or 3rd best team in the SEC, went
to a BCS game and almost won. If anything you could argue that UTEP was more
pumped for their potentially win-able bowl game than their payday SEC
under-the-bus game. They had more time to prepare and heal and their qb was
already injured.That is why we Cougar fans are excited this year :)
In other news, deluigi rushed for 4 yards on a terrific draw play.
I'm a BYU fan, but this article is lame and very pointless.
A 67 yard field goal? That would break the all-time NFL record! Sorensen must
have some kind of leg to even be thinking he can hit from that distance. I know
he came up a little bit short, but gee whiz, who wouldn't?
@Kammie4yds... that sounds familiar... oh, wait for it... Same
amount of yds that your star Thretton put up in the RED / White for the WHOLE
game.Thanks for trolling!
Chris BLOL. Good one. That was actually funny!
Heaps to Apo will become as common a phrase as Stockton to Malone used to be.It's not very often when Bronco gushes like this in a practice. I wish
I could have been there in person to see it. I can't wait until the Cougs get
to TX on Sept 10. I have tickets on the 40 yard line, 20 rows up in the middle
of the TX crowd. Look for me on TV. I'll be the one wearing blue and white in
the middle of a sea of orange.Sorensen will hit a 60+ yarder before
his career is over. Unfortunately for him, Bronco will likely only let him try
one that long just before the end of the half, the end of the game, or with a
huge lead. The risk of missing and giving up that type of field position is a
@ Chris.Surprise,surprise,surprise the first to comment on a BYU
article. Hows mom?Get ready for that line to be repeated over and
over again: Heaps to Apo Touchdown!Go Cougars!
@Pipes & Bball...Amen, brutha!! Thanks for your comment(s). Is
there a more pointless poster ev-ar!!? The thing is, I don't think chrissy
actually knows anything about sports at all or is even a fan of any team at all.
All that ever shows up is anti-BYU drivel and never anything about rooting for
a fav team...Just pointless. And 99.9994% wrong each time too.
In other news, Sam accuses others of trolling.
Nice to hear that Justin Sorensen has some range. 67 yards is a kick from
midfield! If he can kick accurately from that distance he could play a part in
beating some tough opponents this year!
Ute fans, go post on the Ute articles. Oh that's right nobody reads or cares
Kamute:If you are looking for 4 yard draw plays you don't need to
watch or read up on BYU practices, just look to your own backfield.With a rugby player, a freshman and a JC transfer 4 yard draw plays will be
What's wrong with a 4 yd draw play. 3 X 4 = 12, first and 10. I'll take it any
day. Keeps the defense honest, causes the linebackers to cheat a little, and
before they know what hit them, it's Heaps to Apo (et. al.) for 20 yards +.
Shaybo might be correct.On ALL of the sports articles on DNews since
Aug 1st for BYU & Utah:- Utes averaged 19.7 comments (629/32),
with a high of 150 on Aug 3rd, which is their ONLY ONE over 100, and that's the
same one of BYU's over-100 articles, too, as it was a shared topic for both
schools.- BYU averaged 47.4 comments (1516/32), with a high of 171
on Aug 8th, and 4 others over 100.Note that both schools got the
SAME NUMBER of sports articles.You got a point, there, Shaybo!If Ute trolls fed their own articles as much as they do BYU's, then
maybe they could catch up?
"I'm a BYU fan, but this article is lame and very pointless."You're a pretty lame fan then. It's great to see Apo catch a bomb, while
running, with great coverage. This is great news. Sorensen 67 yard
attempts, and just missing? He is going to win us games this year. I hope he's
as good as Alex Henery at Nebraska. That guy did not miss anything.
These type of WRs have not be seen at BYU (except for Collie) Big, physical and
fast. Jake Heaps couls put up some serious numbers this season and next. I
think most of us have known BYU / Utah games would be close the past few years
(08' and 04', Utah was just better) but this year I'm calling it... BYU WILL
beat Utah by 17 or more this season!
"during Tuesday's practice, a 70-yard strike from Heaps that Apo caught on
the run and raced into the end zone. The tight-spiral pass covered about 60
yards in the air."I'll bet Wynn couldn't throw the ball 60
yards if he was standing on the field by himself.
@ Troll Hunter | 9:54 a.m. Aug. 10, 2011 Cottonwood Heights, UT We should beat Utah by atleast 4 touchdowns and Jake will win the Heisman.
"We should beat Utah by atleast 4 touchdowns and Jake will win the
Heisman."The first is very possible, but the second is a little
bit of a stretch.
"In other news, deluigi rushed for 4 yards on a terrific draw
play."First of all, its DiLuigi. Second, we all know that if
Apo were wearing a Utah jersey Ute fans would be gushing about him. He is
exactly the kind of player Ute fans claim BYU is not able to recruit -
African-American, fast, tall, athletic, NFL potential. And yet, BYU has at least
two receivers who fit that description this year, along with the #1 rated QB
recruit in the nation in 2010 throwing the ball to them. Be afraid. Be very
KamUte: While I don't share your viewpoint (being a BYU fan), your posts made
me laugh:)Go Cougars!
Re: Johnny DangerNice comparison. Was UTEP's starting QB playing in both
of those games?
Gosh, maybe I should fly in and cool off in that 90 deg. climate-controlled BYU
training facility the cougars are feebly preparing in for the Ol' Miss game.
Right now in Dallas it is 108 degrees and the heat index is 123. On the news
last night they said that the SMU field was 138 degrees. Four days ago a high
school coach here died of heat stroke after only being out in the weather for
over 2 hours. Six HS football players have also died, many brutally ill as
well. Hey Bronco, maybe you should hold practice in the BYU saunas
in full pads. That is what it will be like at Ole Miss. Buckle-up blue boys!
Txcoug said..."Heaps to Apo will become as common a phrase as
Stockton to Malone used to be."Are you for real? Troll hunted said..."These type of WRs have not be seen at
BYU (except for Collie) Big, physical and fast"Huh? Try never.
Collie is a hard working WR no doubt, but Big, fast and physical? Not hardly.Stockton to Malone?..still rolling
riddleI can't wait for that first run up the gut when Thretton just
levels one of your poor LBs. He will run over and through byU's transparent D on
utah county ute:yeaahh sure. After Thretton hits the hole and the
ball pops out and and the players start the scrum...oh wait wrong sport,...
after the ball pops out and BYU recovers the fumble, Im sure your enthusiasm
In other news, KamUte is commenting on yet another BYU article.
Before the BYU faithful gets all amped-up about Jake Heaps, let's see if he can
win ONE road game against a team other than lowly CSU. He has nothing of merit
to show yet. I think BYU fans should start talking on 9-18.....see where BYU
stands at that point.
