Beat out Wyoming huh? Guess independence does have it's advantages.

Oh and it's a good thing stars don't count for BYU anymore.

Howard, I think BYU does remarkabley well considering their limited recruiting pool. All of the mighty ute 2 and 3 star atheletes certainly haven't done much for them now have they? Back to back to back to ? losing seasons against mediocre competition. Must be a lack of coaching talent eh?

A losing season is having more losses than wins, I don't know why I have to explain that to you. Also back to back means consecutive.

Utah didn't have a losing season last year, we went 8-5.

How is that a losing season?

Typical jealous BYU fans...

Welcome aboard. Wyo is a lot colder, windier and flatter than Provo. Again welcome aboard!

Great comment, "I'm big and built for the cold"...welcome to Utah. Good luck and the Y, and life.

Go UTES!!

"Quincy Awa-Dubose knew next to nothing about BYU a little more than three weeks ago...The mammoth 6-foot-2 offensive lineman was considering Wyoming and a bunch of FCS teams..." -- Brandon Gurney

Haha! So much for that "national brand"! When a California kid knows more about Wyoming's program than the Y's, I'd say ESPN hadn't done such a great job with your program's "exposure".

Looks like playing late-night WAC football on insomniac TV just isn't getting it done as far as reaching a national audience, and building your base. And when you're replacing highly touted 3-star LBs -- such as Ragin -- with an athlete who didn't know much about you, and hadn't received a single other FBS offer, I'd say it hadn't done much for your recruiting reach either.

Howard S:

how's that bottom dweller status working out for ya?

u can't win in the pac building with 2 and 3 star recruits and jc transfers. Not when the top tier programs are signing 3, 4 and 5 star players. Getting all excited about recruiting better than BYU won't affect u'r standing in the pac all that much either. But, if that is all u have to fall back on, go for it.

KVN, Hoffman, Williams, and Hill are all the stars the "Y" need next year. Ziggy NFL 1st round draft. Future appears to be bright.

I wonder if he was told that he needs to cut his hair before enrolling at BYU? Wyoming still may win out for his services if he balks at a hair cut.

This is big time. He will win us lots of games big time.

@NavalVet

BYU's recruits from 2 years ago is what's relevant today.

When the U produces their first College Hall of Famer (BYU has 7) or can produce 23 National Awards,, 16 Consensus All-Americans, Heisman and Outland Trophy winners, as BYU has already done, then you can pop off.

When Utah can average 10 games a year on ESPN, based upon their "Own" name, then let us know. Until then, your pathological obsessing on BYU all day long, is really quite embarassing for you.

Gone are Utah's aspirations for even winning the Pac-South, let alone ever playing in a Rose Bowl. And now that you realize that Utah will never compete in the Pac, all you are left with is.....

"What's BYU doing today".

Looks like little brother just can't let BYU go.

Move on.... BYU and her fans did so long ago, concerning U.
U caught a brief ball of fire for 6 years....Whoopie!
Now all U have left are distant memories of your proverbial "Flash in the Pan".

And even when comparing yourself to BYU....
Day after day, after day..........after day, after day.....U still come up short.

Wannabees are U!

Our offensive line is NFL - like now.

Sorry 965 I was referring to your Pathetic 12 record. I should have been more clear.

Welcome Quincy! You are going to enjoy BYU and playing all around the country against big name programs. You will also find the people at BYU to be good folks too. By the way, I had to cut my hair before going to BYU too and it turned out that it was not that big of a deal. Goo dto have you Bro!

Once again, I can guarantee you that their will be a couple of 0, 1 or 2 star players who turn into stars for BYU. I don't know if this guy is one of them, but who knows, he might be. I trust Tujague's assessment. I'm really not too interested in the opinion of rivals, scout or naval vet.

Bluto

If you and other BYU and Utah fans had truly moved on you would have passed over the comments that sparked your rant, laughed and been done. No matter how you slice it BYU and Utah are like an old married couple who fight and argue constantly but underneath it all can't live without each other.

This guy looks like a monster! Nice job coach 2J! Quincy is going to love playing for the Cougars.
