Not cool. Get well soon

Salt Lake City, UT

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 speedy recovery.


Tough break. Keep your head and heart in the game, and we'll see you on the field soon!

Payson, UT

best wishes Trent.

Orem, UT

Best of luck, Trent.

And thanks, Utah guys, for being classy!

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).


Reasonable Ute - I can think of one time BYU wasn't thin in the secondary and it was in 1996...

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.

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.

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 rediculous.

Sandy, UT

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.

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 and BYU. I hope Hague or one of the JC transfers can fill the void.

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.

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?

West Jordan, Utah

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.


Hang in there kid.

Ogden, UT

Too bad, hope you can make it into as positive a situation as possible. Sorry for the injury.

Parker, CO

Nothing against Hague, but I don't see him with enough speed or agility to play cornerback. Better safety.


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.
