It appears the Cougs' are loaded this year, the Ute's.....not so much.
I'm a BYU fan.I liked watching Kehl play in college, but this article
really turns me off. This guy is full of back-handed compliments: Calling RGIII
a "kid", and saying that BYU coaches are "smarter" than they
were when he was there. Saying he'd be killing it now in BYU's new
defense. Sounds a lot like Uncle Rico in Napolean Dynamite. He goes
on to blame the coaches for not liking him as the reason for him being cut. If
this guy had as much drive as he did complaints he might be playing more. This
article makes Kehl seem like a baby. He may be good, but his
attitude is horrible.
@Chris BYou're absolutely right! Let's hear more about
John Denney, Brett Keisel, Dennis Pitta, Dallas Reynolds or Vic So'oto.
ImaCaManOceanside, CAYou obviously don't know anything about
Brian Kehl. Having heard him several times it still amazes me that he is a
successful linebacker. Seeing him play erases all doubt.
@Surf is up,Still living only in the past huh?I'll
take current status any day!
@ChrisB...If you're a Newspaper or a News Outlet, you write
about what you think your Readers are most interested in... That should tell you
something... If and win they ever talk about former Utes who ride the Bench I am
guessing that they will probably put it on the Ute Pages and not the BYU
pages... So maybe you are looking in the wrong places for the articles?@ImaCaMan... First of all, you don't have to put Ca in your
ID we know pretty much where you are from based on your comment.. Secondly, it
appears to me that Sportscalc has some personal knowledge of the situation... If
his NYG coach who waived Kehl moved over to the Rams and became his coach again
I think that it maybe reasonable to assume that that specific Coach may have not
have had an appreciation for his talent, or for whatever reason didn't want
Brian working for him...The fact remains however, that Kehl is still playing
after 5 years... I think that that's longer than the average tenure in the
NFL, so he must be doing something right.
Re: SportsCalcSo the real problem is that it's the coaches and
he's actually too nice of a guy to play professional football. Yeah right.
Where do you people come up with this stuff?
It wasn't two different sets of coaches. His position coach from NY
actually jumped to St Louis before Bryan and he was one of the most
"anti" Kehl coaches in NY supposedly. From what I heard, due to Bryan
being so level headed and collected off the field he felt Bryan wasn't
capable of being the "rip your head off" type of LB on the field. He
tended to favor the guys that were pretty much thugs and let Bryan know that he
wasn't angry enough to be a good LB.The truth is Bryan is a
great athletic, and instinctive LB that has to be given the opportunity to
display his value on the field. The problem is, coaches at that level
don't want to trust potential as their is so much risk with their jobs
being so constantly on the hot seat.
@Chris B. You are really obsessed arent you? Why do you have you have to make
everything that has nothing to do with your utes into something all about your
utes? Are they not relevant enough? Apparently not. Even you must
be recognizing that. Which is why you spend all your time trying to rewrite
history with false and or irrelelevant information.Why don't
they (the writers) switch it up and write all about other ute players who have
won Superbowl games (having actually contributed)? You finally got one this year
woohoo! But his participation was marginal. He didn't do anything such as,
say, catch a TD pass that made the difference in the victory.Or
writing about all of the former ute coaches who have coached Superbowl teams to
victory? Or ute players that are in the NFL hall of fame?Oh
Why do we only see stories about Kehl and Collie? These guys don't even
play.The Deseret News covers more like 15 Utes in the NFL.But for byu its like we just go from Kehl to Collie to Ziggy to Collie to Kehl
to Ziggy to Kehl.Why not switch it up and write about all the other
BYU guys playing in the NFL?Oh wait...LOL!
So what was it about Kehl that made those coaches disliked him? Was it because
they didn't think he was good at all or was it something about him as a
person? I find it strange that two sets of coaches with different teams felt
the same about him. Hope he does great with the Skins this year and end up
getting a long term contract offer for a change. Good luck Mr.
this guy doesn´t get along with any coach? He even says the byu coaches are
much smarter now than when he played there? Hope he learns, grows up and
recognizes that the only common denominator in all of his "not so good"
situations is himself, not the coach.
