Just need a few things to come together for this to be a great season but a
tough schedule for sure. Go Cougars !!!
Nothing to gloat over regarding injuries....Good luck to this kid
off-the-field.That said, this magnifies greatly losing Davion Orphey
to The U....Combined w/starters lost from last year, particularly in their
Front-7, byu and van noy are looking at an extremely long year in 2013,
extremely long.Serious question right here for the byu faithful--Does byu even remotely have a shot to beat MTSU at home in order to win
their first game of the season or do they take longer and finally hit paydirt
three months into the season when they play against their all too familiar
opponent, The Idaho State Bengals, at home in provo on 11/16/13?Tough question, I understand, and realistically, your guess is as good as
most, I suspect....Thanks in advance for sharing it in this forum,
regardless....The courage to do so on your part will be much appreciated.
Trent you are going to get through this in excellent shape... It will take alot
of hard work, pain and determination but it sounds like you are more than up for
the challenge...This type of injury can be very recoverable for
someon who is in shape, young , athletic and mentally capable of dealing with
the pain and making sure that the determination doesn't suffer...This is one BYU fan who is Excited that you chose BYU and that BYU chose
you... Can't wait to see you in action in 2014 (or sooner if you're
Heal well and heal fast Trent!
Feel terrible for the guy.This is the reason I hate spring ball.
Yeah, it's cool seeing younger guys develop, but it seems like almost every
team suffers at least one very costly injury every spring, and for what gain? To
let fans watch an intrasquad scrimmage at the end, only to have the players take
another three months off right after?Off my soapbox now. Hope for
Trent's sake he has a full, unimpeded recovery and gets back stronger than
before.Chris B, there's no place for that talk with injuries.
Ute fans would appreciate better class from you.
Nothing against Hague, but I don't see him with enough speed or agility to
play cornerback. Better safety.
Too bad, hope you can make it into as positive a situation as possible. Sorry
for the injury.
Hang in there kid.
Football is not for the faint of heart. Tough blow for Trent. That said, getting
hurt this early and red shirting will allow him to come back fully recovered for
next year if all goes well with the knee.
I'm just dumbfounded at this, and how often players are injured on the
first or second day of spring camp, or fall camp, without pads, and with no
contact. How does a kid play football his entire life, have no injuries then
tears an ACL just running a route...and BYU plays on grass. Does this happen at
other schools? or is it the BYU curse?
Since I used the term Cougar Nation I will respond to Wookie.I have had
season tickets to BYU for 30 years. Never missed a game except when serving two
church missions in foreign countries. I am aware of Cougar Clubs and fans in
every state. I travel to several games every year and have been told at most
venues that BYU travels as well as any other team. I have met hundreds of great
fans from many schools. When in foriegn countries I haven't missed a game
on radio or internet.I'm sorry if you are offended if we consider
ourselves true fans. I try to be just as good a sport as I can. I certainly
wouldn't try to tell some one from another school that Husker nation or The
Cardinal nation was not worthy to use "nation" in naming their school
supporters. Then I certainly wouldn't in the same statement claim good
sportsmanship. We are Cougar Nation.
Tough break for Trent and BYU. I hope Hague or one of the JC transfers can fill
Good luck Trent- That is devestating but an inspiration with the character you
have shown. The rivalry between the U and the Y is fun until fans on either side
find happiness in the other teams challenges or misfortunes. Any comments that
focus on anything but Trent in this article is classless and an embarassment.
I'm a U fan but hope that Trent will hang in there and will still be able
to find success and the good in life. Thanks for your attitude and sportmanship.
Tough break for Trent; hope the surgery goes well and that he'll be able to
fully recover and rejoin the team in spring workouts next season.
OK Wookie - Lived in Nebraska 4 yrs myself and agree with most of what you said
about Husker fans. Its important to note that Husker football doesn't
recieve much competition, there's not much in Nebraska other than corn and
college football. Your general statement that Nebraska has true fans, are you
meaning Y and U fans aren't? Your post is a belittling and flat out
Good thing you guys have Orphey, the highly coveted JC transfer as well
right?BYU is deep at corner, just look at all the corners from BYU
in the NFL.Sad for Trent, but byu should be fine. Depth at corner
is always a strong point for byu.
Good luck Trent on recovery. Keep your spirits high, it'll all work out
the way it is planned. I lived in Omaha and the term Husker Nation
was used frequently. When I hear the term Cougar Nation I find it kinda funny.
It just doesn't sit well. The same would be true for Ute Nation (unless
you are referring to the Ute Tribe). Why? Because the fans in Nebraska are
true fans. The have sportmanship and courtesy and class. Fans for the U and Y
have their moments of ignorance (i.e., Chris B (U) and at times Duckhunter (Y
and my friend)) when they get caught up in pointing fingers or intentioinally
causing contention (look at the definition if you disagree. Another reason is
that the fans support their team through the good times and the bad (thus the
longest running sell-out in the history of college of football (over 80,000 fans
weekly). In addition, try to find a place on a Saturday during the game that
does not have the game on TV/Radio/other media...won't happen. Lastly, the
program makes both the U and the Y look like novices.
Reasonable Ute - I can think of one time BYU wasn't thin in the secondary
and it was in 1996...
yeah... I don't think it needs to be said that this is a big blow to BYU.
I have heard nothing but good things about this guy. Tell me if I'm wrong
but won't this make BYU really thin in the secondary? Just wondering... I
hate seeing these guys get hurt. Breaks my heart every time houston reynolds
gets hurt (which has happened frequently).
Best of luck, Trent. And thanks, Utah guys, for being classy!
best wishes Trent.
Tough break. Keep your head and heart in the game, and we'll see you on
the field soon!
Cougar Nation is behind you Trent. Put in that serious time as a Red shirt and
master the system. Love that you didn't skip a beat. Best wishes for a
Not cool. Get well soon
