BYU had better do something other than forecast occurrences that never come to
fruition. "Skill" players at BYU in the last 20 years? Oh sure? I
wanna see the "money" in the NFL. It does get SO
Honestly, who from BYU, a "skill" position player, other than Austin
Collie, my fave receiver in the NFL, believe it or not, has shown anything other
than mediocrity in the 21st century.......not a one in any capacity. Max Hall
was.......?......well? Horrific at best and his uncle is Danny White, who handed
him the opportunity. Todd Watkins.....never did anything. BYU is not good and
have witnessed the likes of Utah, Boise St. and TCU do some real damage on the
national stage.....like crush opponents in a BCS bowl. What is ironic...is that
BYU received BCS money because of Utah and TCU and NEVER did one thing their own
selves. NOTHING! I'm sure that those two BCS busters are glad they don't have to
pay BYU in this century to a mediocre program anymore. For a simple
reason......TCU and Utah have done the BCS gig, invited to great "BCS"
conferences and BYU talks about whatever comes their way because they got the
"hand." with no winning results whatsoever. Who wants to watch bad WAC
teams play BYU on ESPN in November? No one!
Less than six days and counting! Hoffman will be just as big as last year. Apo
will draw a lot of attention, and that will leave Hoffman open to excel. I too am surprised to see Falslev listed as the starter for the slot.
Jacobsen is too good and too fast to not get heavily involved. He was killing
the Utes in the fourth quarter until Anae decided to run the ball three times up
the middle into the Ute wall.@Flames6, for 60 seconds I ask you to
objectively ask yourself two questions. Do you honestly think BYU will only be
as good as they were last year? And do you really think the Utes will be as
good as they were last year?BYU will take a major step forward.
This is likely an 11-2 team (after the bowl), but with a few breaks they could
be even better. Utah will not be as good as last year with no
experience at RB, a weak O line, and a new offense. If Wynn goes down, U will
be in serious trouble.
Same skill position players on the same page with a year under their belts,
hence why you will see much less drops and mistakes and more plays made. This
offense is gonna be alot of fun to watch!
Ignore the Trolls - like the obnoxious neighbor kid, eventually they will go
Hoffman will get mentioned plenty this season. I like him and he's a good player
and he will see the field a lot. I'd feel a little sleighted to be Mckay
Jacobsen. He's a senior, and I'm not sure why coaches haven't worked more with
him to help him be a starting option at slot receiver, or at least a mainstay at
kick or punt returners. Either way, everyone will contribute. There is no
"I" in team guys, come on.
In the coming future, BYU will play a BCS bowl game before the utes. I don't
think it will happen, but if the cougs lose, it's going to hurt.
And this is a good thing...??
I think if I were Cody Hoffman I would be a little ticked that I am not
mentioned at least as much as Apo. Hoffman was a break out receiver last year.
Apo hasn't even seen the field yet in game time. I want Apo to be as good as
advertised but hey lets not forget about Hoffman!
"Same "skill" players, same 7-6 results."That's
an incredibly dumb comment. Most of those skill players last year were freshmen:
Heaps, Hoffman, Quezada, Mahina, Holt, Van Noy, etc. Of course they are going to
struggle early on, and on the road. It takes talent AND experience to play at a
very high level, and the 2010 Cougars were loaded with talent but not
experience. This year they will have a big advantage having a year of experience
under their belts. Utah will find itself in the same situation as BYU last year.
All their skill position players are new and have zero D1 experience. I would
not be a bit surprised to see the Utes end up 7-6 or worse.
Flames6"Same "skill" players, same 7-6
results."Only someone who doesn't understand anything about
college football would make such a clueless statement.Vastly
improved and experienced skill position players, vastly improved results.
New this year: Doman as coordinator.Results: 70 points in the first
game, just like 2001.Heaps to Apo = New Beck to Go
Same "skill" players, same 7-6 results.
As if I wasn't excited enough about the season starting, this article just got
me antsy and it didn't even mention the defense, which might be even better! I'm
sooooo glad we got out of the MWC so now I can watch every game on TV!
