Y Grad/Y Dad:"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."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.[*snicker*]"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.
Naval VetPhiladelphia, PAThe 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.
Y Grad/Y Dad:"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 insecurity around here is just a little comical. Roger JollyMaricopa, AZI was going to ask what you've been smoking, but
you clarified that in your second comment. AZUTE1Mesa, AZShouldn'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.
xert 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.
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.
Warm and fuzzy article. What were their numbers?
*Excluding Star LotulelieSorry, I was watching Obama then Bloomberg
CNN. So bare with me.
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!
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.
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!
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!
