Chris, this one's for you!
"Ziggy Ansah Scoring That first touchdown was probably one if the coolest
things I have ever seen at a lions game"Poor guy is a Lions fan.
Must not be much action with his team. Good play, but can't possibly be
the best play in the last few years. I hope he outclasses Suh and shows him how
to be a good person and a good player at the same time.
It was Sanchez who threw the ball.
Wow great hands for a big man! Maybe he should play both sides of the ball!
Tight End maybe, utenationalum? Nice hops and hands Ziggy. Good start to what
will hopefully be a great career.
Congrats Ziggy on a great start to your NFL career!
I bet that star picked off 4 passes for TDs. After all he is a 4 star
player.Nice work Ziggy. You make the Cougar Nation proud.
So, this is probably the first TD Ziggy has ever scored.1st NFL Start1st TD ScoredNot Bad!
Extremely happy for Ansah, that was an awesome way to start his career and I get
the feeling he'll continue to be a fun player to watch.Now back
to more important things ... Go Utes!
Chris B: Bronco didn't pick up Ziggy. He walked to him.
Way to go Ziggy! thats how you start your career! How is Mark
Sanchez still in the NFL? let alone the starter?
re: UteNationAlumFunny you'd say that. Imagine, with his speed
and strength, putting him into "Fridge" situations inside the 5 as a
blocking/carrying fullback...scary.I did notice in the clip how he
was the slowest off the line. Better work on that, Ezekiel.I'm
pumped for him to have earned this possibility, and think it's a cool
I wonder how many stars Ziggy has now!
That pick six made Ziggy a superstar in Detroit instantly!!
WOW! I'm not surprised at this pick 6 for Ansah, he is a beast!!! Go get em
bro. He probably is the greatest Cougar to ever come out of Provo. besides Steve
Guy is a BEAST!!! Always has been, always will be. I just wish he'd started
football sooner... Then we could have had more than 2/3rds of a year with
him!Go get 'em Ziggy!!
I loved the sports writer's comment that Ziggy may be the Ansah to
Nice play, fun to watch. As far as making him an instant star? Slow down, this
is preseason. This play will be forgotten by 95% of NFL fans by September 8 when
the Vikings come to Detroit. Hopefully he will start creating a name for himself
then, this does little more than adding to the potential he has as a very gifted
StGtoSLC,Way to be a kill-joy;)
Man, he's good. We should have tried him at CB too. How did Detroit decide
to put him at CB?
StGtoSLC is right. It is the first NFL pre-season game. It doesn't even
count. It is not his first start. His start will be when he is on the field on
Anytime anyone punks a former USC football player is an awesome day/night!Thanks and Congrats to Ziggy!
If he played college for a prestigious BCS program he would have had 3
int's instead of one. But he only had one because he played for a
non-elite, non-prestigious program like BYU. That's a shame, he could have
been so much better...ain't that right Chris B.?
I wonder what Ziggy would be had he played several years for BYU. He is a freak
of athletic nature, that is for sure. In other news, Carolina
Panthers fans are happy with Star's first performance. He was drawing
double teams, and plugging holes.
The byu "fans" rush the field cause ziggy made a play in a preseason
Some of you ought to give a little more credit where credit is do. Try to
realize that there's a little more to this than being "just a preseason
game."The first quarter of a preseason game usually has most of the
1's going against the other teams' 1's. In other words, yeah, it
was a pretty awesome interception/TD.But I digress... Go Utes!
The ankle-biters just don't give up do they? The jealousy rages and the
stupid comments come out when something that all sports fans should easily smile
upon. Ziggy has an accomplishment, gets a headline and people bash
or minimize it.I pity you folks.
motorbikeCottonwood Heights, UTThanks!ekuteLayton, UTone way you can tell the difference between BYU fans and
Utah fans is whether they charge the field before or after the play actually
Y Grad / Y DadThe best way to tell the difference between a Utah and
a byu fan is by whose team won the game.8 of 11...3 in row.processing...processing. lol.Go Utes!
ekuteLayton, UTYou have scoreboard for the last three years.
We shall see who has it for the next three.I say, your string has
run it's course. And this year, without even the opportunity to celebrate
a victory over the rival you theoretically have gotten past, this will be a
truly dismal year in the cellar of the PAC whatever.
ekuteTell us this. Where have the Ute football team placed in the
final national polls compared to BYU and USU the last two years? crickets,
crickets, crickets, etc. etc.Ute trolls place their value on one
game instead of a whole season. Final national rankings do not. That is a hint
ekute.For sure, for the Utes, the BYU game will be their bowl game
MacNasty,Make sure you bring them "Final national rankings"
to the game so you can go hide behind them...again...After the Utes put another
beating on the cougars...again.Go Utes!
His early success in the NFL is no surprise. Ziggy has exceptional raw talent
and should have an amazing career! Happy for him! If you haven't seen his
Pro Day, my seventeen year old son, Lincoln, filmed Ziggy's Pro Day at BYU,
neversleepstudio on YouTube,also very impressive. So much talent! It is nice to
see any Utah College send players to the Pros.
Re: ekute @ 9:25 amYou did not answer the question ekute. Where did
your Utes place in the final national polls the last two years (your tenure as a
PAC12 placeholder)?Once again, crickets, crickets, cricketsBTW: I don't bring anything, I am just a Cougar supporter. The BYU team
will bring national recognition, a national championship and a football legacy;
and since you like bringing up the past, the team will bring 17 final rankings
compared to the Utes' puny 5.
Simply Put:0 star walk-on choir boy (Ansah) 15 star recruit
- USC (Sanchez) 0
MacNasty,Your still hiding behind your bottom of the top 25 national
rankings due to weak wacish schedules. Why don't you bring your team out so
they can see what it's really like to play with the big boys and win, ie: 2
BCS victories, ie: Beat Utah, and get a real taste for national recognition, ie:
major conference membership.

more frantic and emotional by the post. The ONLY thing Utah has to boast of in
RECENT history (because the only thing POSSIBLY relevant to THIS year is LAST
year) is a last second victory over your WACish, inferior formal rival that
somehow you just can't get past and you can't help comparing yourself
to.Sad news for you: the rest of the BCS world recognizes that the
bottom half of a BCS conference is not, by birthright, better than the top half
of the rest of the football universe. The rest of the people whose opinions
count have regularly voted BYU a perennial top 25 team. If you
could just win even half of your conference games, U could go to a bowl too.
