wow, 0 yds rushing in the 2nd half? That is very underwhelming to say the least. Where is Ma'afala, where is Mike Anderson? Asiata anyone?
If we get no push off the line, we need a power-back that can barrel through a defender and pick up a couple yards even without a good hole.

Can Langi do that for us?


wwookie from what I've seen, Harvey can but won't yet. He's more interested in breaking into the open field and stiff-arming someone than carrying a few guys. It's a mentality issue, which is why he was dropped on the depth chart to start the year. Hopefully the move up means he's improving there, but I guess we'll see.


Boy the holes in this team are very apparent. QB and Running back. JW4 is quick but we need big backs in the Pac12.

Wow. "Juan Blanco" with only 35 yards on 14 carries v Washington. I doubt that happens again, even against a better ASU defense.

When it rains it pours. As a BYU fan, I know all too well.


Getting Bergstrom back is huge. The O-line struggled mightily against Washington and he is, by far, the best O-Lineman on the team.

Time for our Utes (especially our fanbase) to stop talking about the PAC 12 and start playing in the PAC 12. There is obviously a lot of work ahead of our team and our coaches. It is amazing just how thin we are at key positions on offense and just how bad our LBs have performed against the two PAC teams we have played thus far.

"Back On Track"?!? just because you ran it on a slow, unathletic BYU team doesn't mean it was ever on track to begin with.

We can talk all we want. What we can DO is show up and support our team. Show up and make some noise. See you Saturday.

We sure have had our share of '" happy hands," these last few years on kick offs and punts. I would like to Thretton our Rugby back field the punts and kick offs. He's used to catching the " up and under " kickoffs in Rugby and can handle the ball better, as a Rugby ball in larger in circumference than an American football.Rugby players also have much more experience running in the open field.
We don't need speed if we keep dropping the ball. Catch the ball first ---that's where Thretton steps in.
