Gotta smack someone and a big tightend seems just fine. What is an "up-down"? Is
that like "beat your face" in the US Army? Pushups for the uninitiated.I hope these two junior college transfer have what we need. Our defense is
pretty good, only better when we have solid defenseback play.
B/c of injuries last year Mendenhall wasn't able to run some of his packages or
expand his defense. Hopefully these jc's work out and howard gets back soon.I think our secondary will get exposed versuses OU, but will get better
as the year progresses
Why is it that every year we read about BYU's being thin at the cornerback spot?
And it seems like every year since the Cotton Bowl victory, the cornerbacks
struggle to cover the opposing receivers. Wouldn't it be nice to be deep for
once at CB, and not have to resort to JC transfers?
It's not that there aren't guys on the roster to play CB, it's that there aren't
a lot of capable D-1 guys on the roster to play CB. Depth is improving though.
The JC guys should be very good. Most spots on the team are very
solid. Defensively there have been good players in the past. So I'm really not
worried. The speed gap is closing and BYU has fell just shy of perfect seasons
the last three years. I'm pretty optimistic about things this year. The
secondary is the only glaring weakness, and it's not a great place to have a
weakness, but safety is in alright shape, it is just the cornerback spot that
An Up-Down - A lovely drill where you run in place with your knees coming up
high...a whistle is blown and you drop to your stomach on the ground in front of
you and pop back up as quickly as possible and start runing in place again.
It's a great drill that helps develop your fast muscle twitch.
Have you run out of things to talk about? Skipping to football at this time of
year what is that? Are you to having a hard time digesting your B-ball team? Who
Huh Whats wrong, It called Spring Football, and yes, us cougar fans
wants to know how the practices are going.....duh.......
We always see articles about football during spring ball. Get a clue. And as far
as the basketball team is concerned, we have a lot to look forward to next year
because we only lose one starter. And to answer your last question, when you
consider how many people actuallly go to BYU games, I would say a lot of people
care. Sorry dude, you're in the minority here.
YBU's junior college recruiting has a lot to be desired. Remember the last great
recruit Tico Pringle, oh, I guess you wouldn't. It is because they don't believe
JC college coaches about who is the best players on their own teams.
The only thing worse than this injury would be reading a Dick Harmon article.
Then don't read the article and keep to yourself. It's always good for the true
fans to know how players on the team are coming along after an injury.
The worst thing you can say after a double-groin tear is, ". . . you feel like
nothing is there. You feel like there's something anatomically or physically
worse than it actually is."It makes it sound like "something" is
First, the article was written by Jeff Call. Second, your "name" suggest you are
a lawyer-loving wuss. Third, why make such stupid comments? The worst articles
are by your Yewt-loving reporters whose material is rarely read, rarely
commented on and/or simply discarded as Yewt-feed. Lastly, I encourage you to
clean your barn, pay on your over-drawn cable bill, quit calling in sick so you
can read BYU articles, but mostly, quit reading BYU articles and then making
stupid comments that you hope are funny and are really just a reflection of your
inability to cope with the truth. Harmon writes good stuff for a BYU audience.
Yewt audiences are encouraged to read and comment over where you belong, in a
half-way house with red-clad reporters whistling to the tune of ACDC's "Highway
Did you write to protest all of the ute springball articles that have been going
on for the past three weeks? No, I didn't think so. It's a lot more fun (if
you're a moron) to make juvenile comments than to write something intelligent.
based on past performance, any mention of skill or depth at the corner is
greatly exaggerated. Speed and explosion are needed on the corners--not
knowledge and whatever other catch phrase Bronco drops (i.e. assignment sound,
poise, execution, discipline.) Until we get an athlete with speed and average
or better size, our secondary will be feasted on by offenses. Washington turned
out to be a joke of a team, but their receivers looked all PAC-10 against the
Cougs. Don't be so easily fooled.
haha some people on here are forgetting the fact that we not only beat the
cougars last year but we spanked them! let's just hope max hall can actually
complete a pass this year or maybe he will have another 5 turnovers against the
This time of year the defense is usually ahead of the offense and to have the
QBs pass all over them and RB run right through them sounds like they are worse
than last year! Sounds like more of the same to me if not WORSE!!!!
So "true fans" are trolls that comment on articles?
