David Lee is a nice guy. He was head coach at UTEP for 4 or so years. He
never beat BYU. While he has better talent now, I wonder if he has the offense
to do it?
To: hedgehog | 1:56 p.m. Aug. 8, 2011Ann Arbor, MI I'll bet
you can't guess, wait, "Jordan Winn hasn't thrown a completed pass in a PAC
12 game yet this year either."You must be a Deseret News
employee acting as a plant just to make unrealistic comments to try and get the
comment boards to light up.I guess I'm just one of a few that wasted
time commenting about your post.
Blaine Fowler see's Appo as being a Big-Time receiver.I hope he is
right...we already know Hoffman is going to work out well.
Hedgie, Every player in the NCAA played their first down in their first game.
Sadly, you even made your first comment on this board once. Real
talent shows up somewhere, sometime, often not in the first game and often not
in the first year. Sometimes, the talent never shows or materializes.
Sometimes it comes later in the development of the player. Sometimes, the
talent shows early and is an instant impact. See Jake Heaps and Ty Detmer for
reference. Cheers to Ross Apo that his talent comes earlier not
later in his college career. Go Cougars.
Apo is an added bonus to the receiving core this year since BYU didnt have him
last year due to injury. With Apo,Hoffman, Jacobson, R. Brown and Hafoka the
receiving core looks plenty deep and talented. Looking forward to seeing what
Apo can do. I also expect Jacobson to have a much better season then last year
and Hoffman should be able to build on what he did a year ago as a freshman.
Hedgie..Are we at all shocked that you are number 2 on this comment
board..Really and all you have is, "has Apocaught a college pass yet"?
So because you are bitter that another perdiction has gone bad, "Troy
Hinds" your going do start spinning if great recruits have ever done
anything yet. If that is the case Utah recruiting class this year, have they
ever played a down? Sounds pretty intelligent doesn't it Hedgie?
Apo, Hoffman and Jacobson are going to surgically dissect a lot of defenses this
year. I'm still a little worried about Texas and TCU. I think it will take a
couple of breaks to get a W against them, especially on the road. But the Cougs
should be favored in every other game (although Ole Miss, Utah, UCF, Oregon
State and Hawaii are not gimme's).For those who are expecting Texas
to have another repeat of last year, it's time to change your thinking. They
have too much talent. They could easily be in the Top 10 by year end, and
challenge Oklahoma for the Big 12 crown.And TCU may have lost a
little offensive fire power, but their D will be just as good as last year. BYU
and Boise State are the only two challenges on their schedule. Our
WRs are the key to a successful season. Beyond Apo, Hoffman and Jacobsen; we
also have 3 or 4 other talents who will make some noise. Our WRs ability to
hang onto balls coming out of Heaps' cannon is critical. At this point, I see
no reason why they won't have a blowout year. Go Cougs!
I don't know of too many red shirt freshman that have caught balls in season
games. Amazing the amount of thought that went into that comment. You cant
have it both ways where you downgrade another school for low star recruits but
then downgrade a high star recruit by saying he hasn't played yet. Ross Apo is
a talent with his size and his speed. He will be the one that determines how
good he not comments from a deranged fan on this message board who takes no
accountability for what they write. Good luck Ross hope you stay healthy.
"The only must-have recruit in this class in Troy Hinds"-
hedgehogI'm happy you're sad hedge. I love knowing that all things
BYU put you in a tizzy. Brings a smile to my face. CheersApo
should have a great year
hedgehog:No he hasn't, but we have other receivers that have.Have any of the U running backs actually had a carry in a D1 game
hedgehog, I gues your U of Utah education is really showing. If you
would've read, or even if you did, you would've read and understood that he had
a season ending injury. Still trying to make big boy comments to
make up for Hinds coming to BYU and not going to your might Utah Utes? Or are
you now just saying Utah didn't really want Hinds and that he's really not that
Hedgehog is right. BYU has a ton of potential but they haven't proven much
yet.I for one can't wait to see these young guys develop. Hoffman
and Apo could be an unstoppable duo. Go Cougs!
Has Apo actually caught a pass in an College game yet?crickets.
BYU is going to be a very underrated team this year. So much for BYU
losing recruits to big name schools. BYU has guys leaving and
turning down schools like Texas, USC, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Washington, UCLA,
etc. Utah "fans" said BYU would become irrelevant, so much for that.
