It's painfully obvious Bronco is serious about winning being only his 5th
priority. It's obviously not something he's committed to when we see
clearly more talented players languishing on the bench.
Good questions Aunt Lucy. BYU has a hard enough time recruiting true athletes.
When they get them, they should play them if they are are ready (regardless of
being underclassmen). Playing the character guys are what BYU is about, but
athletes can have character as well. Comparison; pretty girls can
still be good moral girls. I am NOT saying Bronco is purposefully practicing an
imbalanced form of favoritism, but plenty, including myself think he is to hung
up on playing certain types of players. Branch out Bronco, BYU needs more player
diversity in talent and dare I say it, color. Play the best players if they are
willing to come to BYU and conform to its' standards.
Jaamal, We're out here in the hinterlands cheering for you. You may not be
able to hear us, but we're here. You haven't even got your
full-physical maturity yet and you did a fantastic job. In addition, we saw the
potential of another runner...Lasike. He also looked like Harvey Unga. When you
add Hill with his lightening speed, that is a formidable backfield. I was
amazed to see the speed of both Jaamal and Hill. As was pointed out, Hill was
running away from a defensive back. That's amazing too. It's not
accurate to compare Hawaii to other teams to come but It seems like there are
some real possibilities.
Why did it take a broken arm to get this guy on the field???? It's obvious
he has vision and speed we have rarely seen at BYU. Just like at the QB
position in regards to Nelson playing over Hill, I'm frustrated believing
the better athlete is not always on the field. Come on bronco there's no
room for favorites. Too much at stake to play head games. This team's two
defeats were both close winnable games. Could the better athletes have been the
difference? Undefeated right now would have been real fun!
