Van Noy and Hoffman will long be remembered as being incapable of beating their rival.

Utah soon will have 2 4-0 career SWEEPS over byu in the last 15 years.

Do you know how far back you have to go to get the last 4-0 streaks of byu over Utah.

My, how the times have changed!

Salt Lake, UT

A first string byu corner is typically not very good(see any in the NFL?)

A second string byu corner would be pretty bad.

And now they're playing starting 3rd string corners?

Wow, offenses are going to light these guys up!

Can't wait!

Salt Lake, UT

I know byu has had several corners go down with injuries, but it's still on Bronco for not caring about this position.

When was the last time Bronco had a great corner(and by great I don't mean 3rd team all MWC)?

Bronco apparently doesn't think speed and athleticism are important at the corner position, even though any football coach would argue with that.

So as sad as I feel for the hurt guys, it's your coach's fault for not caring about the corner position, ever.

Receivers are going to have career days against these byu corners!

I notice Ross Apo is listed behind Skyler Ridley. Hopefully with Anae's up tempo offense, we'll still get to see a lot of Apo catching deep passes. I'm looking forward to seeing a big jump in Apo's role in the offense in 2013.

And let's hope the cornerbacks all stay healthy. I'd really like to see Dallin Leavitt and Michael Wadsworth play well too.

Mike Hague & Sam Lee will be returning soon so the CB position will get better/deeper. Other than QB, all these positions will see lots of playing time for everyone on the 2 deep to keep them fresh, so Apo will see plenty of action, as well as Mitch Matthews. Next yr is going to be ridiculous at the wide out position...two 6'6 recievers with 4.5 speed on the outside (Mathews & Kurtz). This year the receivers are really going to shine, as well as the RBs. Saturday is taking way too long to get here!

BYU's CBs don't need to beat NFL quality receivers, they only need to beat inexperienced college receivers (e.g. Univ of Utah quality receivers).

And remember, BYU's CB have been practicing against near NFL quality receivers for most of fall camp already, so they already know how to defend against a strong passing attack.

Bronco has done an exceptional job turning a weakness into a strength. It will be fun to watch opponents' offensive coordinators try to pick on the secondary, only to be picked off time after time.

Depth chart looks good. I was surprised to see Friel not listed as the starter at TE.

Norman, OK

BYU will never beat the U again. With our superior coaching staff, facilities and recruiting, we are will quickly surpass everything that the y brings to the table. The PAC 12 logo on our helmets shows why our two deep is head above heals over BYU.

Norman, OK

I must say LOL to this chart. I just cannot help commenting on this article multiple times in succession.

We are about to beat the little brothers four times in a row. How does it feel to be 0-4 against the best team in the state. At everything btw.

Our men are rearing to go.

Byu 5
U of U 56

Write it down in the day planner cuz your going to be able to set your watch by our touchdowns.

Norman, OK

There is a reason why Coach Whitt is so reserved in practices. It is quiet dignity.

He knows that he does not need any slogans or mottos to win games in the PAC 12. In 5 years, the PAC 12 Utes will be a household name that everyone knows.

Our offense is going to light these byu corners up like a gas barel on the corner. I easily predict Tavis Wilson to throw for 400 yards 5 tTD.

Norman, OK

Lol so funny. The Utes jv team could play down a men and still beatn byu. Why even play our starters and risk getting them hurt? It really would not surprise me if Coach just plays a lot of underclass men to give them some practice playing against a WaC team.

Space for added effect.

I watched the PAC 12 network for several games over the week end. These were meaningful games--not one Utah game was shown. And during the breaks not one Utah athlete was profiled. So Chris B can keep strutting his empty wagon syndrome but until the Utes do something worthwhile in the PAC 12 they will still continue to be ignored.

Every one of our number "2"s would start on any other team in the country.

Gotta love ChrispB's posts. Subtle but effective. Highlight the absurdity!


Chris (or any one of your facsimiles)

Why don't you follow your coach and provide us all with "quite dignity" on your posts.

This has been a wonderfully entertaining thread to read.

DNews - How about a new bylaw for the comments - only one post per article per day, even if someone has multiple monikers, pretending to be different people from SLC, OK or Michigan. Seven comments, that I don't even read, from the same person takes away from legit commentors who make valid points, even if they are different than mine.

Love the two deep. I have no doubt that Fua was brought in as the starting OLB to help with the corners. I think he's a little better in passing situations than Hadley, who can make an impact from either ILB or OLB. Can't wait for Saturday!

Norman, OK

Rice Eccles Stadium is going to be selling oxygen because the Utes will be so breath taking to watch.

You will not know what hits you when our bus rolls in to that town down south.

It will be like typhoon cyclone hurricane all rapped into one.

With an oxygen tank.

Go Utes. Go Utes. Go Utes.

Salt Lake City, UT

Yes, I commonly take oxygen with me while swimming slowly along the bottom of the PACific Ocean. Good marketing on the part of RES if that is true.
