Don't we hear just a little too much from Riley Nelson. He still has a lot to prove. Maybe he should be placed off limits to reporters until he wins an important game or two.

Proud Ute

Oh oh.....rumblings in paradise.
Better get Homer Harmon over there to put a better spin on it.


Riley is going to get his clock rang in quite a few games...The Utes "Star" is going to stomp on him!

Provo, UT

At least Riley is mobile when the Ute defensive line comes calling. Well at least we hope he's more mobile than that one time he got his clock cleaned, fumbled the ball with the Utes returning it for a score...

Look for the wailing and gnashing of teeth that is sure to follow with Duckhunter and sammy g. The nutrition program sounds like it's going well though.

We can always count on the trolls to be the first to comment, and the most to comment, WITHOUT FAIL, on every BYU article.

Ogden, UT

Kin da hard-pressed for a story these days, Jeff?

Sorry, I didn't read beyond the headline.

Bring that wine up to Logan, and we will serve some forarms and cheese with it!

Smiling at the jealous obsession of our little brothers and sisters on the hill.

Riley goes 6-7 for 70 yards and 3 TDs in practice, but all our little friends can talk about is the headline that Riley is "frustrated with lack of offensive-line continuity" because several O-linemen have missed practices because of minor bumps and bruises.

The paranoia on the hill runs deep.

Real Bass,

BYU seems to have a problem with what its players say to press. Bronco doesn't even care either, which is odd. But expect the BYU fanbase to spin this like none other.

I still thought they said BYU was 5 deep at every position, so if the starters don't have continuity, shouldn't they just throw in the 2nd stringers? They are just as good, right Cougie fans?

No need for wailing and gnashing of teeth from BYU fans, the whiney, jealous comments of the hill trolls will suffice.

Herriman, UT

Looks like the excuses have begun.


Cedar Hills, UT

all i heard from this article was... "FUMBLE!"

Baltimore, MD


"Looks like the excuses have begun."

4-5, 8th in football, no votes in any poll
last or next to last in every other sports

Whiney excuses are all the kids on the hill know nowadays.

Salt Lake City, UT

Oh oh. Another struggle against good teams and then a cruise through the WAC.

Baltimore, MD


Beats struggling against BAD teams and "cruising" to a LOSING conference record.

Herriman, UT

Anyone could go 9-3 in the cream puff schedule byu plays.

Poor Starting QB.
His star is hanging in the balance. After all, he HAS been placed on the O'Brien watchlist as one of the best college QB's in the country. How can such a star be expected to perform under such circumstances as an inconsistent offensive line? He deserves better than that!
It's only natural then for a good leader to subvert his minions--I mean, teammates-- in the press. After all, how can he be expected to be a star when those meant to protect him are consistently inconsistent? He has to express his feelings to the press, because that is what a good leader does! Must be such a burden.
Then again, he IS the star.

@ ConferenceofChampions- Last year your comment was probably accurate. Let's look at the schedule:
BYU and Utah both play Washington State, Oregon State, and Utah State. Tit for tat.
BYU and Utah play each other. Tit for tat.
Utah plays USC. BYU plays Boise State. Both of those teams have been amongst the best in the country over the last decade.
Utah has a couple of possibly tough conference games in Arizona State and Cal. BYU easily equals that with Notre Dame and Georgia Tech this year.
Utah has scheduled a cream puff opener in Division II school Northern Colorado. Wow! Impressive! BYU counters with the powerhouse that is New Mexico State.
Utah has three games that are decidedly better than BYU's final games: Washington, Arizona, and Colorado. BYU has scheduled Hawaii, Idaho, and San Jose State. Hawaii is never a weak opponent and would probably beat Colorado. The other two games are definitely weaker than Utah's.
At the end of the day Utah has two games that are stronger than BYU's schedule. Not too big of a deal.

Hey, I', a Ute fan, but I like Nelson. Be plays hard, says what's on his mind and doesn't get too caught up in anything else...of course he expects a lot out of his line; good for him, call them out in the media and make them respond. They're not going to disrespect him the way they did Heaps because Nelson will not back down from a fight. BYUs program may never be where they once were, but I would be glad for them to earn respect for making the most out of what they have.
