Won't any Utes comment on this article? Then I will.

These guys are studs, and it's way, way more than just genetics. Well done, men!

Congrats to the Krugers and Lotulelei on their success! I hope the younger Kruger siblings will be just as successful as their older brother. The Ute nation must be so proud of the great representation these kids bring to their program. Most of all, I hope they'll stay true to their values and beliefs and not allow fame and fortune to corrupt them. Their parents must be very proud. Great article!

Anyone who pays any interest to the defensive side of the football could tell that Paul was something special from the beginning. The other two? I never felt that either came anywhere near "starring" for the Utes. Strong football family, but to compare Dave and Joe to Paul? No.

Y grad... don't get ahead of yourself. I mean really? Don't be too desperate to knock Ute football.

I just don't see anybody going to the NFL as a draft pick. I wish them all the best.

Go Utes!

Warm and fuzzy article. What were their numbers?

Excellent representation for our proud, storied program up there on The Hill.

Question--What's the current stat-line on KW/BM in player-development, in terms of total number of draft-picks produced? Anybody? I can't imagine BM helped himself much in this regard w/his recent haul of 2-Star recruits....Impressive, to say the very least.

I agree with you in the fact that I don't think Dave and Joe are near as good as Paul. Even though Paul played against MWC talent, I still think he is way better. I remember when Paul first came to the U, he was playing for Urban, and Urban made a comment, about who was this guy who kept knocking down passes and giving the QBs all the trouble they could handle, and that guy was Paul. He sure impressed Coach Meyer a lot. Good luck to these guys though, especially Star.

The insecurity around here is just a little comical.

I was going to ask what you've been smoking, but you clarified that in your second comment.

Shouldn't you be more concerned about comparing total draft picks with Colorado? They are your new rival now, right? You've left BYU behind. Right?

It was just a sincere compliment guys. Your welcome.

"The insecurity around here is just a little comical."

Seeing former Ute players getting drafted (or even listed high on draft lists) doesn't promote insecurity within Ute fan circles.

Oh, wait! YOU meant from the INDY-WACers -- whose fanbase hadn't really seen too many of their own alumni see as much success as their big brother on the Hill.

Yeah...I can see it now.

Poor insecure Indy-WACers.

The only thing that might make a cougar fan insecure is the obvious inability in three of the last four games to muster just a few more points to defeat the team on the hill. You see, that is always one of several team goals. Getting players drafted is not a team goal, but it's great stuff to talk about once the final whistle has sounded.

Krugers are a great family, and I'm hoping Star's situation either proves not that serious or easily treatable. Long life and much success to them all.

Yes, and we Ute fans have been seeing such a vast outpouring of cougar insecurity over this past decade. However, you missed the part about cougar fans' insecurity skyrocketing once we were "Fully Invited" to join the conference your fans have been pretending to negotiate "secretly" for membership status over at least the past 3 decades, and the following rejection by every elite expanding conference....leaving you with no place to go but the WAC.

"Getting players drafted is not a team goal,..."

No, but then again, neither is "recruiting". But drafted players impact recruiting, and recruiting impacts depth. And player personnel impact overall team goals.
