I wonder how many people featured in this magazine go their entire career without ever beating their rivals.

Not Chuckie!

Go Utes, Go Aggies!

@Chris B
It takes courage and fortitude for you get up each day and do what you do. Happy hating my friend.

I wonder how many people featured in this magazine played for the University of Utah?

Amazing that a fan from a team that was sub .500 talks so much.

I would be embarrassed to be a u fan.

I have 3 alma maters I can root for, and two of them will beat the u this year and the other made the u look silly in their last bowl game.

I dont think ChrisB knows how to do anything but hate.

Congrats to Kyle and Cody and Chuckie for stealing the spotlight!

Look forward to seeing you guys in the league!

BYU would be very happy just keeping their two players who were drafted, as I'm sure would Utah State. I wonder how Utah would feel about keeping their... um, never mind.

From the article:

"100. BYU: C Tyler Larsen, R-Sr., Utah State, 6-4, 312

It just so happens that one of the best centers in college football is a member of the LDS church. That makes Bronco Mendenhall's choice quite easy."

So many items of interest here.

1. BYU picks 100 because... they are ranked at 26. Utah's pick? I won't spoil it for you; read the article!

2. USU had at least two players selected in "the draft." Darn right!

3. Would BYU trade the two who were drafted for the one they would supposedly get? I think not! USU neither (I assume USU was ranked higher than BYU and thus picked later. Being BYU-narcissistic, I stopped reading after I got to BYU. Apologies to my honorable Aggie friends).

4. Would UTAH trade who was drafted for who they would supposedly get? Oh, yeah, I forgot.

Apologies also to my (few) loyal Utah friends! This is where you can insert comment about BYU winning more pre-season victories...

Y Grad/Y Dad:
USU got Brandin Cooks...very good receiver. The problem with this mock draft as you insinuated is that all the good teams would lose all their great players while only gaining 1, while the cellar dwellers would lose none and gain All Americans (Utah). Sounds a lot like socialism...redistribution of wealth. You know kind of like how certain teams get a 20 million dollar pay day and contribute absolutely nothing to their conference.

@ Chris B. This is the year where KVN and Hoffman destroy the utes, and get drafted in the NFL, while there will be zero utes taken.

Chris B,

How come you keep saying that Utah has moved on and is not BYU's rival any more but keep coming on here and talking about the rivalry?

Go Cougs!!!
Go Utes!!!
