We have no idea how good Jacobson is. I guess we'll find out when he has a decent QB throwing him the ball.

Sorry but the facts don't support your opinion. In the last 5 years 14 Utes drafted by the NFL 4 Cougars. Don't you hate when facts ruin your post??

High water mark, 6 draftees, I believe. This year, 1. By definition, that is a decline.

6 > 1

Next? That was too easy...

@toosmartforyou, BYU should start a new rivalry with Southern Utah U. Utah and USU will be moving on to bigger and better things than BYU.......well, Utah already has. And, we'll be looking forward to spanking lowly BYU again this year......and ya know it will happen. Utah is absolutely LOADED this year and for the foreseeable future. Just take a glance at our latest recruiting class...... some serious looking athletes are at, or are headed to the mighty U!

By the way, I like a real school like Colorado being our rival AGAIN. Their fans are great and nice people as well. Hopefully we'll will beat them this year.

BYU won't have anyone drafted in the NFL next year either........unless Van Noy declares. He is the only NFL caliber player at BYU.

Anything > 0. Two years in a row!!

Colorado game. Ouch good one.
1984. Ouch! Good one.
UNLV game years ago. Ouch! Good one.
Heisman. Ouch! Good one!
Utah hoops. Wow good comeback.
These always sting soooooo bad every time we hear about them.

The simple truth is:

All rational BYU fans would switch places with Utah .


Worf..........If BYU is so great how come they got destroyed by 44 points at home by their instate rival? Oh, I forgot, it's always the refs fault.

Your point is?

It's been almost two years since the Utes supposedly left the Cougars in their dust with their PAC 12 invite, yet the same bunch of insecure, BYU-obsessed kids from the hill continue to spam every BYU article.

Gotta love the irony of a major conference bottom-dweller trying to prove that they're better than an irrelevant, independent, "former" rival.

So much for all of Kyle's "NFL talent."

Bronco is simply a better coach, accomplishing more with less.

Nuff said!

Good luck McKay! Utah is behing you...

Just look at all these Ute fans your story has attracted!

If McKay excels in the NFL, it will be yet another failure in developing players at BYU.

Also, I'll admit that I was surprised to see him even get a contract as a free agent. While it might be a pipe dream, at least he's able to live the dream for a few more months.

Orem, UT

Wow! Jacobsen had an entire nine TD catches and 1800 yards in all the seasons he played for BYU. Gotta be proud of those subpar stats. Although those numbers would be higher if Jacobsen didn't have a propensity for dropping passes that are in his hands.

There is a reason neither he, nor any other BYU player has been drafted...again. Maybe the alumni will, after a few more seasons, finally figure it out and put pressure on the AD to find a coach who actually knows how to prep players for the jump to the NFL. Bronco ain't the answer to that equation.

When all is said and done---BYU is the "University of Utah", and the star of the state.

Please translate your post. Exactly what is "Utah is behing you"?

McKay can still live the dream. Undrafted free agents have had successful NFL careers. Victor Cruz from the NY Giants comes to mind. He's listed as 6'0" 204. McKay's listed at 5'11' 190. The right team at the right time? Who knows? It will be fun to follow McKay's progress to see if he makes it.

Just sayin', most alumni are more concerned with how the TEAM did, not how many players go on to pro careers.

The over-weight linemen? Legitimate concern. Thumped by the U? Legitimate concern. Winning seasons, another top 25 finish, bowl victory? Legitimate accomishments. Despite our red brethren's laughable attempts to turn everything upside down.

I just think that if I go to the U hall of fame, or any other, I won't see a trophy or a plaque for how many players got drafted.

Nephi, UT

Duckhunter your post about the number of Ute fans posting on BYU articles only proves their point that they have "moved on" from BYU. BYU always has been and always will be at the top of Ute fan's minds, no matter how they try to spin it.


I wish he would have landed with my Jets! I would imagine the Jets' interest in Jacobsen being that he has the look and potential to be the next Wayne Chrebet, which is saying something.

You can point out every meaningless fact ranking or stat from the last 20 years. But the only fact that matters is you got beat down at home this past season from your instate rivals. That's it! no sugar coating that . . no excuses you got beat and so Utah fans can talk the talk.
