Your comment about the Utes is biased and unbalanced. You ask how many players
from last years team went to the NFL, but the problem is that many of the
players from last years team are returning and will likely enter the NFL in the
future. And if my memory serves, 4-5 of those players from last season are on
current NFL rosters. So 4-5 out of 10 starters that left is pretty darn good.
If anything we are the most diverse team in college football. We're the only
team that isn't 95% black! I'm not even joking!
I find it amazing that a fan from a team (BYU) that has not beaten a ranked BCS
school since 1998 feels qualified to critique a team(UTAH) that has beaten 6
ranked BCS schools just since 2003.If we weren't that good what does that say
about the cougs who we beat by 24 points.BYU is in for a rude awakening this
year,not just against the Sooners but all year long.Games are won in the
trenches and the UTES are far superior to BYU on both the offensive and
defensive lines.There is no way BYU is going to be able to block our d-line.
All caucasian line? We are in trouble.C'mon Cougs! Diversify!We need
help up front, or Max 'Hall of Fame" is going to be scrambling too much.Skyler
You just never know, The cougar defense could be very good. They are very deep
at linebacker and they have Jan anchoring the defensive line. You never know
until you play the games. Last year UCLA was supposed to be all this and that
and BYU exposed them for who they really were. Remember, the media feeds off of
these kinds of things and a lot of money is made by creating a buzz around
certain teams, Thus the BCS. Utah showed what a decent team well coached can
do.(Lets not get carried away Utes with last years team. they were not that
good. How many players from that team went into the NFL).Utah and therest
of the non-BCS conferences arguement is the same. You can not just say your
better or number one,you have to proove it on the field!!!!!!!!!!!
Although written poorly, the gist of this post is correct. Anyone that thinks OU
has a mediocre defense is crazy--everyone has Bradford on the brain right now,
but OU has always been an excellent, fast defensive team.I'm no BYU
fan, but I acknowledge that they are good enough at their offensive skill
positions that they can put points on the board... if the O line can hold. With
the inexperience and weakness of the current O line I would be very worried. BYU
has to dominate the offensive side of the football, because anyone honest with
themselves knows they aren't going to dominate the defensive side.
Our O-line is gigantic I bet they eat at least 6 mayonnaise sandwiches a day.
They are going to pancake the defenses that go up against them (including OU),
Who cares about the offensive line? Why doesn't the D-news just give us another
article about Maxie?
If you can't get through a full scrimmage, against the ones and twos, without
losing players what do you think 60 minsutes against OU, Tulane and FSU is going
to do to you? How many starters will you have to start conference play? Be
greatful the WY, CSU and SDSU is rebuilding, you might win three!?
Oh Man! Just look at the picture, can you say big ang SLOW. Bring your best,
we'll be waiting.
I drove through Oklahoma City one time, but I wasn't paying much attetion, and
I-40 didn't take us through Norman; could you tell me about this Stoops area you
mention? Is it near the university, perhaps, or maybe outside of town? I'm also
curious, are you truly sorry? That would be nice, because your statement is the
sorriest bit of prose I have read since yesterday's threads - although the level
of education seems to be better here than at the Tribune.
What's all this "OU has a bad taste in their mouth so they're going to blah
blah" How in the fricking crap do you think BYU feels? BYU got pantsed by
archrival Utah and lost to a subpar Arizona team in the last bowl game their
last two games. OU lost to the best team in the country there is no shame in
that. BYU lost to an overrated Utah team and an average Arizona team. If ANYONE
will be amped up for redemption it will be BYU. Especially all the "BYU can't
beat ranked non-conference" crap that we're soooo sick of hearing. Can you say
BYU-UCLA from last year?
To Anonymous @ 12:02That was rather unintelligible. Please try
Justin Sorenson went on a mission, don't be concerned. He'll be back in 2011.
ou defense is the best in stoops area , byu be lucky to score 3 it will be a a
slaughter in dallas , they have a bad taste in thier mouth and ready to get it
out , mortage the house go to vegas and load up on the sooners , byu better work
on draws screens running north and south , no time to drop back in this game ,
Can someone tell me whatever happened to Justin Sorenson?
Easy to read the tea leaves on this one.The good news is where we
may be down the road two years. The O-line will be stacked with veterans again
and we will have a senior quarterback in Riley Nelson. Just a teaser.For this year we should still have a pretty good year. We should do
respectable against Oklahoma. I know that some are predicting a slaughter but
remember that Oklahoma's weakness is their defense. Basically it is very
mediocre. This means their weakness is going up against one of our stronger
parts, offense. I think it will be a better game than many are
predicting. Certainly their defense is not going to shred our offense, won't
happen. Certainly with Manase Tonga back our blocking packages just got more
solid. He is like have a second Center on the field with the size and strength
of a second Tight End. His return is a BIG boost to the offensive line. Throw in
two great tight ends, Harvey Unga...there is much to be encouraged when it comes
to helping the O-line settle into a rythme.We are going to do just
I'm certainly worried about the O-line. Turnovers and false starts lose games.
It's hard for a good Defense to do much if the Offense doesn't give them good
