What? These guys aren't playing in the NFL? How can that be?

The picture tells a great story. It makes Andrew George look like a super hero with Sylvester saying I got him Joe I got him.

"What? These guys aren't playing in the NFL? How can that be?"

Well, not everybody can be part of 'The Conference of Champions." Not even Utah, apparently.

By George! I think this is a great combination...Andrew George and Max Hall.

Go Cougars!

Provo, UT

I have to laugh at people who seem to think that if a college athlete doesn't make it into the NFL he is a failure at life. So, yes, neither George nor Max Hall are in the big time, although Max at least got to play a few games, but their are in graduate school and are on the way to a good future. Sorry, Mr. Bike, but your caustic observation doesn't hold water.

I wish they'd bring back those royal blue uniforms! They look plain awesome!

If you guys can't handle a Ute fan throwing out some good-natured teasing about Max Hall who went on the most hate-laced tirade in rivalry history, well then perhaps your skin is a tad too thin.
Not to mention it was Cougar fans that used to throw out the NFL card as often as possible back when they had more NFL players to brag about ... but now it's conveniently something no Cougar fan wants to read or hear. I love it!

Somehow I wish that George and Pitta would have been a year a part. We could've used him at TE in 2010 and I think he would have excelled as the feature TE instead of the back-up.

The work with the TEs seems to be paying dividends this year. I hope the work with the O line will come together this week. We will need a better performance by them going forward.


Man, I love that picture.

For hardly any NFL talent between them, they schooled Utah in their day. I believe Max was 2-1 against the drum and feather.

But get used to it. Mike Leech didn't even have college football experience, but before he's done at Wazzu, I think you will see entirely too much of him.

Not thin skinned. Just sayin'...

Unlike brian johnson, Max Hall actually did play in the NFL and started 3 games. Not bad.

not everyone gets as many chances to fail as Alex Smith. If you understood the circumstances of Max's words vs. Alex's words you would agree that Max's words were a knee jerk reaction to sexual harassment against his mother at RES, but Alex's words were unprovoked and calculated.

what years did you play in the nfl? yu didn't? how can that be?

Wow, did I touch a sensitive spot? LOL

There seems to be a lot of hurt cougs out there today.

Don't feel too bad you guys still have Jimmer! Remember when he was awesome? That was cool.

As for bagging on Alex Smith - that appears to be tears of jealousy. I would say he is doing just fine as an NFL QB.

I do find it interesting that now Max Hall was reacting to "sexual harassment" - that story keeps getting better and better. LOL

I hope his family can make it to the game again this year. Too funny.

Olympia, WA

Never heard the sexual harassment either. Max's rant was a dark moment from him that I may never forgive. Both good teams, and hopefully a good game. I have loved the closeness of the games over the last 20+ years with few exceptions. Motorbikes comment was good natured, I think, so get over it. Lets just hope that BYU takes it to the Utes this weekend.

Cedar Hills, UT

Why would Max Halls family ever want to go to RES again ???? I went there once and that was once to many...I totally understand Max Hall rant...!!! This is from a fan that used to support Utah when they werent playing the Cougs.

Cedar Hills, UT

I have to give this game to Utah. The U will be mad about last week and I simply don't see Nelson being able to do much against the U defense....

You're going to have to excuse me but what did Brian Johnson have to do with this article. I went back and read it twice and couldn't see any reference. Stir the pot that's your best gift. Brian Johnson didn't get all over the news ranting and raving about how much he HATED something. That was pure class, just like the post you just made. Brian Johnson had a much better chance at the NFL than you did, he put on a Packer helmet but didn't make it. Again I ask what did this article have to do with Brian Johnson.
