Rock as Debbie Downer on Saturday Night Live. He was right with Tulsa as a step
above Idaho, and the Y's schedule again very poor in November. Riley is a
decent QB. Is he great, not really. Does he have heart, a ton of it. Against
teams that have a great D line, and good overall team speed, Riley will
struggle. He is like Heaps in a way that he has trouble looking off his 1st
receiver. When he does, he tucks it and starts to run. I think that Riley, with
his heart gives the Y a better chance to win than Hypes did, but that is not
saying much. They have 8 built in wins, and they should get 1 of the other 4,
and maybe 2 if Boise St doesn't figure out their QB situation. 4 weeks and
1 day until we find out. Now I'm not saying that Wynn and the
Utes are great, but their D will keep them in games against good teams, &
even the poor ones when the offense is not playing well. They also have more
weapons on offense than the Y does. Both teams should be good.
Wow, that article was depressing to read. It was all negative; about how
everybody was going to screw it up. Author having a rough day at work?
WayneRout, I remember the Heaps of 2010 as well; I was really
excited going into last season. Simply put, he just didn't get it done.
You kinda sound like you have Jake's apparent attitude, why wasn't
there proper coaching, and why didn't the teammates perform well for HIM?
It couldn't possibly have been HIS fault. I don't know enough to say
exactly why Heaps and Quezada transferred, but it was obvious that neither
played with the same heart and passion as Nelson and Alisa. People I do know
within the program have hinted at Heaps refusing to listen to his coaches, that
might be an issue. Also, look at the way Heaps reacted when he threw the
interception at Ole Miss; he just stood there. If he had any confidence in his
teammates before that, he lost it there, coupled with his subsequent play the
following weeks.I hope he does well at Kansas, I really do; but
I'm also glad he's gone to give room for those who want to put all
their heart and soul into the program. Those guys are so much more fun to watch
I remember the Heap who played in 2010, was the star of a bowl game, and seemed
to be ready to be the next great QB. What happened to him. Why did he not get
some personal coaching to help with what ever those mysterious problems were
that caused him to leave. There no doubt was some back-stabbing that caused
some of his team mates to fail to do their best for Jake. If you watched Riley
at TCU you have a good idea what this coming year will be like. There have
been a lot of plyers who were great in the huddle and the practice field. The
loss of Jake and Josh, for what ever reasons, makes one wonder who in the
organization knows how to lead and motivate?
Mr. Rock, the Edmund Fitzgerald was a freighter not a passenger ship, thus it
had no passengers. Please get your shipwreck references straight. It takes your
arguments from being irrelevant to incoherent. Which is like being the last
passenger on the Lusitania
Tulsa just better than Idaho? Really? Which bowl game was Idaho in? Tulsa was on
a fairly long win streak if I recall correctly when they reached the Armed
Forces bowl. An elite team, no, but saying they were just better than Idaho last
year is ridiculous. They would have creamed Idaho. As far as the
Utes are concerned, there is always that away game to Colorado.
For Utah and BYU nearly everything rests on the health of their QB's.
Neither team can really hope to do well with 2nd string out there. I would
like to think Utah could scrap by most opponents with even decent passing from
wilson and a healthy backfield. So much going on at the U this year. Lots of
new talent on and off the field. And hopefully some old talent staying healthy.
Wynn could surprise a lot of people this year.
Ben H,I couldn't agree more. Brad Sorensen is the BEST QB in
Utah. There is a reason he suited up for BYU. If you don't believe that
you need to look at his stats while here in Cedar. Look out USU. Coach Lamb
and Brad are looking to give you a run Aug.30th.
Um, uh, ok.
What in TucketJake will do very well this year... sitting on the
bench as he waits out his mandatory redshirt year because of his transfer.Why??Yep, yep, yep. Glad he's gone too.
And here I've always thought it was a cogent Brad Rock article that was
akin to a UFO sighting in Utah.
Anybody who thinks BYU will miss Heaps needs to watch his acrobatic fumble to
start the 54-10 loss to Utah. The guy has no guts or heart. He was a prima donna
and a cancer to the team. Good luck to Heaps and Kansas.
Meanwhile, the best college quarterback in Utah is playing in Cedar City...go
Mr. Nelson seems to be a quarterback looking for an accident, but we can hope he
will stay healthy. BYU on the long term should be on the way up. we will see.
It could be 6-6 to 10-3. Mr. Heaps just didn't seem able to win for some
reason. If he does well this year he may have been justified in transferring.
It will be a knockout season for Wynn - no later than round (game) 3
