It'll be hind of hard for him to win the award when he's only getting a third of the carries.

And especially when his team only wins a third of their games

If they're lucky.

And yet no ute's are even mentioned, again. And not only that Jamal Williams is on the list as well, that means 2 of BYU rb's are on it. At this point it is something along the line of 7 players for BYU for 14 awards to 1 player for 1 award from utah. This just doesn't seem to be in line with the chris b, az ute, and general utah "fan" claims of athletic superiority. If that was true wouldn't it be more, many more, utah players being up for these awards?

Who are the Utes running backs this year and what have they done on the field yet?

We're about to sweep your graduating class, 4-0.

I know that will embarrass you. And I will remind you about it day after day after day.

The reason for the watchlist nominations is because BYU is on TV every week. The ESPN contract is helping to get Cougars noteriety. Utah has no national presence so there is really no hope of winning a national award. No Ute has ever won a national award. The BYU national awards list is too long to type here. BYU is a national brand and is recognized as such. On the national landscape the Uties are a joke. No awards, no bowl games and no winning seasons again....ever

"We're about to sweep your graduating class, 4-0."

Once again your fantasies don't reflect reality. Most of BYU's graduating class of 2013 were members of the 2009 BYU team that beat the Utes and finished #12 in the final polls.
