Children, please stop the very childish bickering. The two BYU players mentioned in the story deserve credit not childish taunts. I am also sure their is a story out their about the two Utah players named to the list. They too deserve credit for their accomplishments. Congrats to all the players. It is an accomplishment just to be on a team. So many are not.

What a let down. When I saw the headline, I thought the Riley was Riley Nelson, what a letdown when I read further to find out it was the other Riley. Obviously the voters didn't know what Bronco knows.

Going to the NFL is not the most important thing in the world or the safest. It's a dog eat dog frenzy.

More Cougar All Americans. The list continues to grow.

So where is the story on the Ute players D-News? I like to see both programs do well. And if there are any Utah State Aggies that made these teams, let's get on it.

Maybe in a day or two. At last count, there were 8 articles about Majerus. The D-news probably feels they've reached the saturation point for Utah-related articles.

Good to see the DesNews covering college football so closely -- still waiting on that article about Reggie Dunn being named 1st team All-American and Star being named 2 team.

The bickering between Utah and BYU is lame. As an independent, BYU has the ability to create a better schedule (see 2013) and increase its exposure (see every game televised in 2011 and 2012 whereas many Utah games couldn't be seen by Directv customers). I thought Utah had a really strong defense this year and was in most games even though their record was poor. If BYU had let Lark play when Nelson was hurt, perhaps they would have won at Utah and Boise State and perhaps they could have pulled it out at San Jose State. The reality is we have two good college football teams here in Utah. Rivalry is one thing but it makes both teams better when both teams are good. Kudos for BYU having two linebackers who are NFL bound and for having another punter who will most likely end up there as well.
