Why doesn't the team higher a Dietician instead of a Nutritionist?

Anyone can take a basic nutrition class to be a nutritionist but you have to have a degree and license to be a dietician.

What a dumb article...

I see someone is missing article pictures again.

The science of athletic advantage is continuing to evolve. Dialing in nutrition for optimum performance and having a 'go to' person makes great sense for the serious athlete.

And for our Ute fans and players that are hungry for BYU news...

Free Double Whoppers and Betos Burritos everyday in Salt Lake thru September.

Wasn't this article written last year? The whole position specific diet thing . . . Oh well - summer time.

I was not as interested in the nutritionist itself as the fact that Mathews could be at 245 pounds by September. It's not often we can convert a WR to TE. He had the best hands of all the TEs last year, but couldn't be used as an every down TE because of his size. I think 2012 will be the year we see one or two of our young but talented TEs have a break out season.

UU32:

I don't believe this article was written last year. Last year, it was Bronco's diet that was drawn attention. If I recall correctly, it was a riveting story featuring Bronco's no-pudding dietary regime.

As a BYU fan I am glad to hear this, my only question is why wasn't this done sooner? Teams have been doing this for year and frankly I think the Utes have been in better shape the last few years which has shown on the field. This is not breaking-science. With the size of BYU and the many different disciplines it offers, you are telling me they couldn't have gotten a professor to help them with this years ago????

I've heard BYU is going to be using some no-huddle offense this season. Anybody know if this is true?

Really? This kind of thing has been known and practiced by BYU for years. This is not a team or program known for its strength or discipline...or will to win. I think the key is more in the heart/brain than in the gut (or T-shirt slogan).

Just come out and say it Gurney! The Cougars are slow and not as athletic as some of the teams they play.

A nutritionist can't hurt.

But what BYU needs...a mental toughness coach, i.e. someone who
can coach them not to give up even after falling behind 54-10
like they did last fall against the mighty Utes.

Did you say MIGHTY utes? ---- Is that the same team that lost to the LOWLY colorado buffaloes ??

Certainly hope so TE is one position thats been sorely lacking in production since Pitta and George graduated. TE has been a very important element to the success of BYUs offense since the Lavall Edwards era.

54-10.

LOL

17-14 Hurts Don't It?

54-10

I just love the opportunity to expose a Ute season finale, again and again, probably more so than you do reminding BYU fans of a fluke loss to Utah.

17-14

The stinging end of a fanbase's hopes and dreams to be a South Division Champ (on a ho-hum w/l record), a shot at a PAC 10.2 championship, a parade in Pasadena, the Rose Bowl, a national ranking... zip, nada, nothing.

And Colorado, a team that hadn't won a road game in 4 years, took it ALL away, including the side trip to Disneyland for the kids.

And 54-10... like it never happened... AP #26, Coach's Poll #25

LOL
