Tom in CA-15 mph north wind. That's a beautiful, calm day here in
Wyoming. It's typically more like 30-40 mph winds- & you're
correct about 10 degrees, although you need to factor in the wind chill. Don't get me wrong- I love it in my corner of Wyoming, but
wouldn't want to play football in Laramie.
"utahcountyuteCedar Hills, UTCal won't take him
academically but byU will? Impossible."While I understand that a
Ute grad's neck probably becomes sore from looking upward, the academic
standards at Cal are even higher than they are at BYU...
Cougars1 - you are correct. DN gives Chris B a major pass. There is no freedom
of speech unless you start your post as "Chris B".Torry - if
you like playing in 10 degrees, 15 mph north wind, and 4 inches of snow, then
Wyoming is the perfect place for you.Would love to have you in Provo
if you decide to pass on the Cowboys.
I am convinced that Chris B. is the moderator or he/she works for the Dnews. He
posts stuff that no one else could get away with posting.
Torry was just offered to Wyoming. I hope BYU offers soon. Would be great.
If BYU's 2013 schedule is indicative of future schedules, this kid would be
crazy to choose Colorado St or Wyoming over BYU. Seems any highly competitive
athlete should rather be competing against schools like Texas, Notre Dame,
Wisconsin, etc., than the typical MWC schedule. Also, while I would not choose
to live in Provo, it's got to be better than Laramie.
Offer this Cougar... don't let someone else slip him out from under us.
What are we waiting for? I will be sick if we finally offer him, and he says too
late... I already committed.
Hes going to be so awesome I can just feel it.
Makes me wonder why BYU wasn't on him much earlier, like a year or two ago.
I would be great to see fans post intelligent, non-hateful comments. I'm a
BYU fan all the way. There is no good reason to say demeaning things about any
university. Of course, if he can play like his father I certainly hope he comes
Navel vet, don't worry about Rival's current ranking and his speed. If
he comes to BYU those numbers will all be downgraded before the ink is dry on
his LOI. We all know the validity of Rivals' rankings for any player who
shows interest in BYU. About as valid as a White House press release.
Who Am I Sir?A classy post...
You think his dad would tell his son why bother going Wyo?I
understand that Torry dad would come back and go for Master Degree while he
plays at BYU. Would love to have them both here.My Cougar friends,
why bother reading Chris B. nonsense stuff he posts, just don't read them
or respond to him or is it her.
The ones I am most happy for are the cougar fans. For so many years it seemed
like BYU recruiting was 90% done by June. And the only excitement in the last
month or so was in getting two star recruits who had no other offers. (Two
years ago they signed 5 in January that fit that profile) I felt the cougar
fans missed the highs and lows that I loved in the last minute recruiting
activity. (This year with four days to go I feel the Utes could lose two 3 star
recruits and or gain a three star and a four star) Including this recruit, two
mentioned in another article, and a rumored tweet the Y could add three three
star recruits (and one more that only two of the 4 services had on their data
base) Good Luck - and I hape the fans are enjoying the moment!
@NavalYour Football team was 5-7. (No Bowel).Your Basketball
team is 9-11 (1-7 in the Pac)Get back to us when the U can compete,
in any sport.
It would be interesting to know if Cal has any scholarship player in any sport
who has a lower or the same entering GPA and SAT score than McTyer. I'll
bet that their high academic standard fits best when it serves their recruitment
Lots of childish, curlish comments on here today. What is in the water some are
drinking.Impressive change in academics. I can understand CAL and
Standford as two examples, that say, yes, here is the minimum GPA, but we
require a much high GPA. As to Utah, what is their GPA requirement?
Just barely meet the GPA, come here and be a bottom dweller in the PAC 10 + 2.
Re: Naval Vet He probably hasn't been in enough knife fights to
apply to Utah either so that's probably why they aren't on his
list.I like his chances of BYU accepting him into the culture with
athletes like Kyle Van Noy and Jordon Johnson on the defense, though.
Cal had a change at Head Coach after the season ended.Most fans would say
and especially those who are now on the outside looking in would say it's
not right to take away the scholarship, however, it's not unusual for a new
staff to re-prioritize recruits.In this case, using potential academic
performance as an excuse seems pretty weak.His tremendous improvement in
academics is impressive.McTyer looks like he has the tools to help
anyone.Good luck in finding the right fit.
Sounds like the kid is on a good vector, understands the LDS issues via
dad's experience and wants a chance. Never underestimate the value of
having someone hungry for a shot at something good; they often demonstrate
tremendous focus in addressing their weaknesses and meeting expectations. Stars
As indicated in the story, it may be that BYU had offerred all of their
scholarships and is waiting to see if they are all accepted, or else they would
have offerred when they found out he was available. I hopt they have one
available for him. He looks like a great prospect. However it goes, good luck
to you, Torry. We'd love to have you if it works out.
McTyer is a 3-star ATH...and that's 1-star too many for the cougars. He
also reportedly runs a 4.4 forty...which is too also too fast. He won't
fit in with the Y's culture of slow-footed 2-star mediocrity. Besides,
Rivals is listing him as having more interest in MWC schools like CSU, FSU, and
Tim McTyer was a great player who played on one of the best BYU teams ever.His son Torry looks like he was cut out of the same mold as his father
and it would great to have him at BYU.I hope things work out for
him, so we can see Torry in a BYU uniform some day.
Cal education standards > BYU education standards > Utah education
standards. I can live with that.Yet another conundrum for Ute fans.
He HAD an offer from Cal, a PAC whatever school, so he's THAT good, at
least. I know, let's bag on him because he can't get into Cal.Good luck, young man! You've worked like crazy both on the field
and in the classroom. You thought you had done what you needed to to be able to
play for Cal. Trust in the Lord, He can turn all things for your good. This is
a good first step!
@Rushmore, spot on my friend. However the writing on the chalkboard likely
would have been "I will not get caught with a DUI again" After the news
reported that Blechen wasn't suspended from the team until he'd had
"multiple" failed drug tests, it was apparent what Whittingham cares
utahcountyute's capitalization of "BYU" indicates that he would
easily fit under that 2.5 GPA cap.As for Van Noy's DUI, Bronco
made KVN wait an entire year before allowing KVN to join the BYU football
program. Whittingham would have made him write three times on the
blackboard "I will not DUI again" and then would have had him sit out of
the first five minutes of fall camp.
I am fully convinced, after reading Chris B's comments, that his sole
purpose of being here is to remind us all why there is a terrestrial kingdom.:)Go Cougars!
utahcounty, because he didnt want to. I simply said it was a requirement of
the Ute football team. That doesn't mean its a law that everyone who has
one is legally required to go to the U. He didnt want to go there. Any more
questions that don't make sense?
So if his grades can't get into Cal, why BYU?
Chris BThere is nothing in the BYU honor code that prohibits girl
friends. From reading your posts over the years it has become evident that by
"Normal Girl Friend" you mean one who is willing to commit serious
sins.It is a very sad state of affairs when people consider
immorality to be normal.Please respect our standards even if you
don't have any.
@Sports Are Great:"You are making blanket statements that are
not accurate, please be respectful of our beliefs as we are of yours."
SportoWhy didn't Van Noy come to the U then?
Cal won't take him academically but byU will? Impossible.
Torry McTyer seems like a great kid and a very good football player. It would be
great to have him join the BYU football program.---------In a way, I feel sorry for Christy. She clearly has trouble coping with
anybody's standards but her own.
Chris B No one at BYU says that there aren't plenty of good
people in this world who do have a drink every now and then. We teach
tolerance. You are making blanket statements that are not accurate, please be
respectful of our beliefs as we are of yours. BYU has standards. The kids know
this when they sign up. They don't have to come here if they don't
want. Please be respectful.
Would be great to get this Kid
