Regardless I still miss Kehl and Poppinga.
Cougs got Drew Phillips from AL! The kid was wanted by a ton of D1 programs! Oh
and U wanted him too. boo hoo for U."The 6-foot, 174-pound Phillips
also received scholarship offers from Wyoming, Idaho, SMU, Central Michigan,
Louisiana Tech, Samford and Tennessee-Martin.Other schools who
expressed interest in him were Illinois, Louisville, Birmingham-Southern,
Jacksonville State, Memphis, Central Florida, Mississippi State, Florida State,
Stanford, North Alabama, UAB, Troy, Utah and The Citadel."For the
next 5 years (minimum) U will be looking up from their backsides after getting
run over by the Cougs!
Yes, pretty scary picking up a two-star recruit who was offered scholarships by
Wyoming, Central Michigan, SMU and Tennesee-Martin.
He was such a bad player that the u made an offer. The only offer that counts
was his decision to go to the Y over the one at the u :)
There was no offer of a scholarship from the University of Utah. Check Rivals
dot com. "Interest" can mean anything and usually that means the recruit has
interest in the school not the other way around. So Drew had interest in Utah,
Stanford et. al but these schools made him no offer so he had to settle for his
second choice, BYU.
Remington Peck - I thought he would be starting for sure by now. He is much
better than any linebacker that BYU has. He is thinking about going pro after
his sophomore year.
Jake Heaps will forego his senior season of high school and will start over Max
Hall for the opener against OK.
ESPN has him at a 3 star. Some evaluations are out-dated.He still
has his senior season.Alabama was really interested in this guy - check all their blogs.But the only stars that matter are the ones
the Utes will be seeing after he runs them over.Harvey Unga, Malosi Teo,
Drew Phillips and the #1 QB, I can see why little brother is lashing out.
They're all like 30 years old.Mike
I'm suprised you folks have enough time to post on here. What with all the gas
you've got to pump.
Good job my friend! How is the pokemon game coming along? Have you caught them
all yet? Who is your middle linebacker? Squirtle?
Okla., Tulane, Fla St.That's a tough start. They better be ready.They better score more than 40 points totla in those 3, and that could be a
trick in itself.Fat Matt
Remington Peck is thinking about going pro after his sophomore year, and he has
never started a game at BYU???? He better do some more thinking!!!!
I can wait wait to see Harvey Unga run over Stevenson Sylvester and the Utes
all game long in November. I can just hear Sylvester now " I tot I thsaw a
puddy-tat..." in the huddle all game long.
RP has been re-rostered as a DE. There is more needed depth at DL than at LB
right now. The linebacker's will be way better as a unit this year.
We were 10-3 last year with a poor defense, and with an improved defense that
should make a big difference. I think we'll be quicker around the edges and
bring more pressure to the QB. We will also be solid against the run again like
we always have been (except for running QB's, but come on, every defense has a
problem with those). I think we'll hold teams to an average of 125 rushing yards
per game. That's not dominant but it's very solid.
I'm 29 years old, have lived at home since I got sent home from my mission early
and work construction for my dad. All my money goes towards my new lifted truck
that a park on the road in front of dad's house. I take a class or two a
semester but never really finish them cause I change my mind on what I want to
do. Now that I have proved I am the typical ute let me just say we were able to
win without a qb last year so you know we are good. Are defense is fine without
Tough start so far this year. Injuries to three starters and all the team has
done is play tag.They don't don pads until Thursday.
That's more honorable than being 21 years old with 3 kids all of whom were born
covered by insurance provided by the honest people of Utah. Mom never finished
school because that's her husband's job so she is busing tables at the Heavenly
Hamberger shop while dad is home in front of the computer on Deseret News sports
boards.Think about it...Zoobie!Oh, and good luck without
an offensive line and a defense that has not been able to stop pass plays for
the last decade.
Where in this state is there a full serve gas station?Now be quiet and
don't skimp on my pizza toppings.Mike
Can't wait until November when we carve up your defense. Nothing funnier than
watching a bunch of slow white guys who can't defend anyone. Oh yeah, Max Hall
is still throwing interceptions.
Before Anyone calls me Ute fan, I graduated from BYU in 2001. I have lived in
Utah county for 20+ years.But I am realistic. It goes back to
relying, in large part, on untested, unproven RMs. These kids haven't been hit,
they have no idea what it's like out there.I'll bet they get beat
the first 3, then settle down a bit for conference play. But this group of
Cougars sure gives me a .500 feeling.S. Jensen.
First, look at the schedule.Ugly to start.Counting on even 2 wins
there is a reach.Kicking might be the difference against TulaneYou have to be realistic, though.Only realists see the truth.Underdog is going to be a common BYU position.
Reality Check : BYU will go 8-4 or 7-5 this season:Hope they do
better...but too many holes to fill to be able to win against good teams.
Figure on losses against OK FSU TCU and one or two other teams. Not sure about
the Utah game. Could go either way...as neither team is really that good.
BYU loses 4 games AT MOST this year!! Who is seriously worried about Tulane!?!
Look em up. You might as well be scared of Wyoming or San Diego St. Nobody is talking schedule into account. TCU, Florida St. and Utah all come
to Provo. When was the last time BYU lost there? 05? BYU's road schedule is
CAKE!!! UNLV will be the tuffest. (Not counting OK on neutral site) I will be
very surprised if BYU loses on the road. I don't see them droping 3 at home. so
worse case senario, BYU is 8-4 and 3rd in MWC. I say 10-2 with losses to
TCU and OK.
I saw Ogletree play high school ball. The guy can flat out play ball. He'd
kick Bauman's trash if they put him in at the #1 spot.
Maxie got his knee tweaked today by friendly fire. What happens to the Cougar
season when OU knocks him out for the season? 5-7??
First off he might be thinking about it but he cant do it seeing how you have to
be a Junior to go pro. Peck is nowhere near ready he wont even start this year
and maybe even next year Van Noy and with Stout coming in he may not even start
next year as well so this puts him at least 3 years until he starts. The guy if
I was him would pissed Riley Nelson they recruit you while your on a mission and
then get Heaps to come you know he is the future of the program being Heaps. Man
that is almost laughable Peck going pro.Richard Wilson will start before Peck.
Check your stats. The average age of the Utes is nearly equal to the Cougs.
Obviously, the Utes are up against the same hurdle when it comes to time off to
serve a mission. Don't think I'd be making too much fuss about that considering
you are there too.
After hearing Monson and Graham's assessment of Utah's QB situation yesterday,
I'd be more concerned about your Utes...Better watch out for UNLV (remember 27-0
2 years ago)? Eugene Oregon is going to be an ugly experience, as will Ft.
Worth, TX and Provo, UT. Your Utes will be back to their usual 7-5 selves
again, playin in the New Mexico Bowl. Brush off your Sugar Bowl tapes, and bawl
yourselves to sleep!
Don't worry about BYU's supposed holes to fill, pay attention to your Utes and
theirs...such as your start QB's...when none of them can step up and make name
to lead the revamped Ute offense...not to mention a totally new coaching
staff...my predition: BYU 10-2, Utah 8-4...sorry but true.
Very slick message, Bud. I wonder if anyone else caught it?Alan
