MyPerspective, to be fair, GT did average 33 ppg last year, albeit against
pretty bad ACC defenses, and didn't do as well against the decent ACC and
SEC defenses they faced. But yeah, Boise, Wazzu and Notre Dame were all bad
offensive teams (as was Utah).
Blue: "You know what's faster than speed? A good scheme, smart athletes
who are in position, and all defenders pursuing the ball."You
know what's even better than that? An easy home cooked scheduled."Our D didn't give up too many points to BSU, USU, Wazzu, Georgia
Tech, or ND."BSU, Wazzu, Georgia Teh, and ND didn't score
very many points against anybody. Georgia Tech...seriously??Rise
and Shout, byu "D!"
@ FaceWAZZU? Are you serious? Also, you forgot to mention being
absolutely torn-apart by OSU's O at home, to boot. Face it, byu benefited
yet again by a weaker Strength-of-Schedule and their reality is they've
essentially only beat one good team in recent memory, USU. I don't
consider SDSU to be in this same category. You tout byu's D, but in
reality they faced weaker competition and now Van Noy, whom I do consider to be
an elite-player, is faced w/stepping back onto the field w/out his supporting
cast from last season and w/a typically weak secondary, which was hurt further
by losing their J.C. transfer to a season-ending injury.I get that
byu secures the pre-season NC, annually, but now they inch a little bit closer
towards playing against what UTAH has been playing against the past couple of
years, a legitimate week in, week out grind of a schedule and do so w/an
extremely inexperienced D, a horrible o-line, an inexperienced, injury-prone QB
and bm as their HC. Prepare for an extremely long season upcoming.
I've yet to witness JT in person, but from the film I've seen of him
playing, accounts written in the media and detailed-reports from insiders, his
athleticism is second-to-none and has the potential to surpass all of our great
CBs preceding him in his accomplishments and ultimately earn legendary-status
w/in our program. He's surpassed all expectations to date, so I see no
reason whatsoever that he won't, in fact, fulfill all of his hype and then
Blue: Exactly. Speed can never make up for a bad angle. Scheme always beats
Who's the new QB Trevor Willson? Seriously?
BYU can get a goose egg in the draft, I don't really care. As long as
they're good AT BYU, I'm good. BYU's defense is team-first, not
shaved 40 times. That's just superficial and matters only to scouts for the
draft. Our D didn't give up too many points to BSU, USU, Wazzu, Georgia
Tech, or ND. It did slip up on SJSU and Utah, however. No need to call such a
solid D in question, that's below you. Good luck in the draft
and with impressing the scouts.
"Yep. You know what's faster than speed? A good scheme, smart athletes
who are in position, and all defenders pursuing the ball. Speed is great, but
it's rendered useless when out of position or in a bad angle."How have those "good schemes" and "smart athletes" done
against Utah's speed 8 of the last 11 years? Just curious.
"BYU wastes schollies on athletes that are slow and unathletic"Couldn't have said it any better myself. No, in all seriousness, BYU
isn't wasting anything. It's seemingly the best they can do.And yes, I'm most definitely looking forward to the draft. I really like
Ziggy's story. Star is a first class dude, too. Excited for these guys.Also, just curious, do you think that BYU's defense would have been
as highly ranked had it played Utah's schedule? I'm not denying that
BYU's team D was good last year, just curious to hear your take.Since 2004, Utah has WON two BCS bowls and had 22 players drafted. BYU has...
won... shoot, something right? Looks like they have had 9 players get drafted
though. That's a whopping 4 more than Abilene Christian has had! DNews
won't let me post the links to the draft stats, but I'm sure you can
find them! Woohoo team D! It doesn't win championships, and it
doesn't get you drafted. Come play for BYU!
Yep. You know what's faster than speed? A good scheme, smart athletes who
are in position, and all defenders pursuing the ball. Speed is great, but
it's rendered useless when out of position or in a bad angle.
CougFaninTX:How many 21-yr old redshirt freshmen are on the U's
team? How many are on the Y's team? If there are substantially more on
the Y's team, then yes, Utah fans can still talk.
Blue: They still aren't fast enough for us. Bronco only recruits pure
UtahUtesFan08: I'm just commenting on how they probably have missed their
calling to be world-class sprinters. Those 40 times convert into awesome 60-,
100-, and 200-meter times. The U could probably field a VERY competitive olympic
team all by themselves - the Ute Nation Olympic Squad.BYU wastes
schollies on athletes that are slow and unathletic and who play their team up to
a Top 10 defense. Oh well. Congrats.P.S. Are you looking forward to
the 2013 NFL draft?
"all UofU DBs run a low 4.2 in the 40. Olympic level speed."Which Olympic event are you referring to. The 40-Yard dash? The U puts an
unproportional amount of DBs into the NFL. What leads you to believe they
aren't really fast? Of course, BYU fans aren't exactly experts on fast
corners, are they? Or NFL ready corners? Or NFL anythings?
No more comments from U about the age of BYU players, now that U are supporting
an AARP member in the backfield. A 21 year old Freshman, who didn't take 2
years off for a mission. Wow!
Hopefully the D is more Ball Hawky than last year.
all UofU DBs run a low 4.2 in the 40. Olympic level speed.
How many corners and safeties, on active NFL rosters at the same time, will the
U have their stamp on?Looking forward to the upcoming season.Go Utes!
QB Trevor Wilson? Really DNews?
