@2bcswinsutah "fans" are coming on here and singing
@Truecoug "The dude's a winner, and he's very underrated as a
passer. I'm looking forward to watching him prove all the doubters wrong
this year."Dudes a winner against who? Wac teams? Who has he
proven he's a winner against? Underrated passer how exactly? His best
passes are heeve the ball in the air and hopes it lands in the right
person's hands. See utah st. game for example hail marry to Jacobson a
horrible pass from him tipped into his teammates hands is only reason they win
that game.Like your QB but don't over praise him until he
actually proves something and beats a good team. Thats like ute fan's
coming on here saying Jordan Wynn dudes a winner and underrated runner.
Chris BWe know you're still adjusting to the subtleties of your
new conference so your confusion is understandable, but playing at UCLA is
vastly different from playing in the Rose Bowl.BYU 42WSU 20BYU 35Utah 21USC 45Utah 17Mark it
@IdaUte "I will watch the WSU game and reserve my opinion until then, but
what I saw in the TCU games didn't impress me much."You
mean the fact that he had almost 300 yards of total offense in that game, more
than the entire TCU team combined, didn't impress you? That
was arguably the best performance by a BYU or Utah QB against TCU since Max Hall
in 2007. Did he make 2 really bad mistakes in the blue zone? Yep. However, if
our punting team doesn't have a really weird, complete meltdown, BYU wins
that game. If Riley doesn't make his two mistakes, BYU wins that game
going away.The dude's a winner, and he's very underrated
as a passer. I'm looking forward to watching him prove all the doubters
wrong this year.Go Cougars!
Hopefully Nelson will make it through the season. Even though I am not a BYU
fan, I want to see all of their guys stay healthy for multiple reasons. I
don't want to see anybody hurt playing a game for my entertainment. And I
don't want any excuses. Only a coward would want to play another team at
less than full strength.
Will Riley Nelson last the year as quarterback? That might seem
like a crazy question, but this time last year it would have been crazy to
wonder if Jake Heaps would last the year as quarterback.
I think it's going to be a competition between him and Wynn of the
University of Utah on whom gets hurt the least. Even though I'm an ardent
Cougar fan, I don't expect Riley Nelson to play the whole season. Lark
better have his arm warmed up at all times.
Chris B - you live in your own little bubble, don't you. By the
way, don't overlook Northern Colorado.WSU - 17BYU - 34utah - 10BYU - 42Mark it down.
I can't believe Nelson is the best guy you have at QB. I always hate your
QB's but they are usually pretty good, but Nelson??? I will watch the WSU
game and reserve my opinion until then, but what I saw in the TCU games
didn't impress me much.
Riley had a fractured rib in the Bowl Game? No wonder he played so poorly! With
the exception of the game winning drive, of course. I was wondering what the
problem was with the offense that game. It doesn't look like he's
going to quit unless he's like literally dead or something. He might not be
the best passer in the world, but you've got to admire his football savvy.
By the way,BYU 31, Washington State 21BYU 28, Utah 24
Riverton Cougar - You hit the nail on the head. I remember when predicted BYU
would lose to SDSU in basketball and promised not to post, but a few days later
his obsession with all things BYU was back at the comment board.I
don't mind if Riley scrammbles and runs, it's one of his better
abilities. He just needs to learn how to slide or get out of bounds instead of
taking the hit at the end of the play. The extra yard or two is not worth it,
unless it's 3rd / 4th down and the game is on the line - like the final
drive against Tulsa when he scrammbled for the 1st down. He's
proven he's tough. He's proven he should be the starter. Now he
needs to prove that he has the smarts to keep himself in the game. I'm
sure Lark is ready to come in, but our chances of winning are better with
Riley.Lark could probably beat 7 of the 12 teams on our schedule.
But we need Riley at 100% against WSU, BSU, utah, ND and GT.
No TJ, Chris B will post all year long as Chris B, regardless of the outcome of
the game. He did this during BYU basketball season, saying BYU would not win
and was so sure of that that he declared that if BYU did win, he would not post
for a year. BYU won big, and a couple weeks later Chris B was posting again.
sammyg,Greater QB problem? What happens when Riley gets himself
injured? Does BYU not plan for these things?
Poor Sammy, Ute Success have just tipped him and his little buddy Ducky right
over the edge!
U play USC in Utah this year crisb
If BYU beats Utah crisb won't post under crisb all year. But he / she will
post under some of his / her other id's. The obsession lives onBYU 35WSU 17USC 30Utes 13
If Chris B leaves my only purpose in life comes to a screeching halt... not
really but it was compelling thought for a second. LOLI'm not
worried about Riley, it would be unfortunate if he gets injured but with BYU,
there's always a QB ready to go. Here's hoping for a great
senior season for you Riley... with no injuries. I'm so ready for you to
have a breakout season and to put it to the competition.Now on to a
more serious topics as I'm sure they will be brought up...The
Utes have a greater problem. And we know it starts at the QB position. History can and often repeats itself. Nothing different this year. If Wynn
goes down, the Utes will have to reload and suffer through another ho hum
season.And unless DirectTV deals with the PAC 12 Network its going
to be a long season for a bunch of Ute fans.
I almost wish byu won do that we can personally end your season ourselves, as we
march to Pasadena!
