The thought of being the second best independent in the nation and winning 1 out of your 5 toughtest games must have byu fans all over the world giddy with excitement.

No mention of Wadsworth, the transfer from Hawaii. Any news on his status? I believe that originally he was tabbed as a promising corner; maybe not a starter but making the rotation.
Also, I thought Reilly was a scholarship player, not a walk-on. The last I read about him indicated he had started several games as a true freshman at CSU (before a mission). That would suggest he might be fairly likely to make the rotation as well. What's anyone else hearing?

DBs are big and fast. This used to be our weakness but now it is a strength.

Your are right on Chris B, the Utes will put everything into that one game and will take down the Cougars.....probably with an embarassing blowout too. I can totally see it. And then they will go on to win only 3 or 4 of their remaining 11 games, and will leave the original members of the PAC 10 continuing to wonder how to get out of the obvious mistake in adding Utah and Colorado. The real question is when will Utah and it's fan base ever set their sights higher than a weak "2nd best independent" program in the nation?

Bills and Sorensen are both solid players. Johnson was good last year, and I expect him to be even better this year.

DBs were the weakest part of our defense last year, and probably will be again this year. They got exposed by Oregon St and SJ St and their passing game.

We're going to face a few more teams who have the ability to throw the ball downfield this year. Hopefully the DBs will be ready for the challenge.

Mildred - I know you are trying to be funny with your sarcasm, and ignite the Utah faithful; but DB's are not a strength. They should be solid, but the LBs are the strength of the defensive.

Re: Joe Marx

He's on the roster. That's all I know for right now. Sorry.

@ Chris B

Remind again which bowl was it that Utah played in last year? And they're national ranking was what again? I love your BCS membership, it has given the Utes so much to cheer about. You must be giddy over all your success. They've taken the Southern Division by storm. Now it's on to the conference title and the Rose Bowl. Go Runnin' Utes (more like runnin-out-of-excuses Utes)

By the way, I think you must have misread the headline. This is a BYU article
